What most people forget is that monothiesm and polytheism are false teachings as both doctrines are dualistic - that Cause is separate from Effect which leads the votaries (and the dualistic scriptures) of these baseless theories to the naive conclusion that some extra cosmic god (or gods) who has no causal connection with anything some how or the other managed to create the cosmos out of nothing and is manipulating the cosmos and its inhabitants like puppets on string. Anything sillier than this? As such both monotheism and polytheism are irrational hypotheses.
The best alternative that is in tune with rationality, experiment, experience and mysticism is Monism/Non-Dualism/Advaita that preaches that One Reality has manifested itself in varied ways or that the cosmic variety is the manifested effect of one Supreme Cause !
This makes sense as unity in variety is the eternal and universal law.
