A Historical Argument for Monotheism.
« on: August 24, 2023, 10:59:07 am »
Let's start off this sub-forum debate between Monotheism and Polytheism with a Historical Argument.

Since the majority Polytheistic Religion of today is Hinduism, here's a question for Hindu Friends.

"German archaeologist and linguist Max Muller argued the same for the Hindu religion:

There is a monotheism that precedes the polytheism of the Veda; and even in the invocation of the innumerable gods the remembrance of a God one and infinite, breaks through the mist of idolatrous phraseology like the blue sky that is hidden by passing clouds.6"


The argument would be formulated like this (1) Monotheism and the Reality of a Single Creator God is older than the idea of many false gods (2) it's reasonable to think this collective memory of humankind or historical remembrance of civilization emerged from a revelation of God to man (3) Therefore, it's reasonable to believe God wants His children and His devotees to be Monotheists and not Polytheists.

Let's Debate.
God Bless.
