There is not but one god.

When you think on it, there are contrasts and conflicts in our world and our lives. To believe in one god leaves you to question how these contrasts come to be. Believing in many gods, each with different powers and personalities, provides answers to how these different experiences and events come to be.

1. Yes.

 

I believe different gods represent different archetypes found across all cultures as explained by Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung.

Catholics have patron saints to pray to for particular needs. Hindus say you can pick out your favorite god or goddess to worship that is called an "Ishta Devata". Devas are spirits. Hindus also say there is one god, but all those gods and goddesses are aspects of the one god that is too vast to comprehend.

This concept makes a lot of sense to me.

3. So. Why do you choose to come here and reveal this to us today?

We want to know.

6. When something is revealed, it is the duty of the person to whom it is revealed, to save the world.

 

Should Darwin have kept Creationism to himself?

Just because Obama is choosing to keep Islam to himself, does not mean I have no duty to educate the world.
