  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 26)...

    Why do you speak of gods rather than God?

    ...and the response:

    If I'd written an answer for Ishmael to give to this question, it would read this way: "There is nowhere in the universe where the number of the gods is written, so there is utterly no way to decide whether that number is zero (as atheists believe) or one (as monotheists believe) or many (as polytheists believe). The matter is one of complete indifference to me. I don't care whether the number of the gods is one, zero, or nine billion. If it turned out that the number of the gods is zero, this wouldn't cause me to alter a single syllable of what I've said to you."
