113. There is no way there COULD be "different" gods
because if god exists at all, and these religions all agree there is only one god, everybody worships the same god, whether they like it or not. They are fighting about different interpretations of the one god belief. It breaks down to fighting about whose interpretation of god is correct and there are certainly many different interpretations.
