I believe it is a matter of faith that God exists!
I happen to believe that us Jews and Christians believe there is only one. Furthermore, Islam also believes in one God. Whether we all agree is another question.
However, when one looks at the order, beauty, complexity, and nature of the physical world, it is clear that one being or many beings put this altogether.
Furthermore, when one looks at all of the moral chaos and natural disasters, one might even consider that some of the gods are evil.
I think history is replete with examples of this.
Well, by definition, there can only be one Supreme God.
But this Supreme God also made angelic (i.e. immortal, supernatural) beings. Some of these angelic beings turned evil. It seems possible that this plurality of angelic beings consistute of pantheon of "gods"- (in the sense of immortal, supernatural entities- using the term 'god' in the sense it is used by polytheistic religions, not monotheistic ones).
Hence, it seems reasonable to think that a plurality of entities are at work- angels (good and bad).
I do not really believe that- but it is not an unreasonable or absurd belief- and perhaps useful as an element of imagination.
