Good question.
I have a better question.
Why not?

What would they need then?

A need is a requirement. We need energy to survive. If we can't get it, we'll cease to exist.

To place a need or requiriment on the infinite is to attempt to limit infinity. G-d needs nothing at all. Absolutely nothing.

Passover. The holiday of no bread, beer, cake or peanut butter.

Beacuse the definition of all-powerful is that it doesn't need anything.

We might amuse God, but the notion that God needs us is just plain silly.

God/Gods need to have FULLNESS OF JOY
If God can not have FULLNESS OF JOY what is the point of being God?

I like the way you put that.

Ahhh the Passover, that holiday that celebrates the plagues brought against everyone who didn't have some blood smeared on their doors.

Gotta love that.

Apparently god didn't know who to torture or kill.

I wouldn't have survived a Passover. I'm a first born.
As such, I'm really glad it's all a pack of lies.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

You and I believe in the same God. We believe in God of Abraham, Isaak and Jacob.
God of Israel did NOT claim to any of His prophets that He is infinite. Or did He?
what is "infinite God" any way?
