Not.... necessarily?

Like, what if the universe is of infinite expanse (adopting a nomenclature of space-time wherein things X light years away are things we don't find out about for another X years, rather than one in which the beginning of the universe is Y light years away)? And suppose that each sun, or each galaxy, got its own god? That'd be infinite gods right there.

I am an antipistevist. That's like an antipastovist, only with epistemic responsibility instead of bruschetta.

No. of gods: 1

Names for god: 9,000,000,000

Arthur C. Clarke thought that might be troubling

RE: Does the number of religions exceed the number of Gods?
"There are billions of gods in the world. They swarm thick as herring roe. Most of them are too small to see and never get worshiped, at least by anything bigger than bacteria, who never say their prayers and don’t demand much in the way of miracles.
They are the small gods—the spirits of places where two ant trails cross, the gods of microclimates down between the grass roots. And most of them stay that way."

Terry Pratchett, Small Gods

Don't let those gnomes and their illusions get you down. They're just gnomes and illusions.
