When are you going to appreciate that according to theism there are alleged to be some 3000 gods abroad on earth.
Theism doesn't just present one god vs. many, but many ways of believing in one or many gods. GT presents just one particular god and one particular way of believing in that god and then assumes it's the only representative one in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. If he doesn't acknowledge the diversity of theism regardless of what he personally believes for himself, whatever he may call it, then he needs to consider his own issues with dishonesty instead of accusing everyone else.
There can be as many (or more) deities than there are cultures. But there can only be one God.
According to Christian dualism. God coexists with Satan and numerous (other?) angels and demons. As per this, it should be conceivable that God 1 and God 2 can coexist and by induction, that God 1 thru God 3000 can coexist.
According to a recently (or still) dominant school of Christian soteriology, God paid a ransom to rescue man. To whom? In principle, it could be to other Gods who had different plans for man.
