Just because one of the deities is more powerful than the others doesn't mean that the remainder are not still deities. Before anybody can claim a religion to be monotheistic or polytheistic, you need to define what it means to be a god.

Re: possible explanations as to why the universe exists

I believe that the world was created by an omnipotent (or at least very powerful) creature.

I also believe that creature is a dick.

Just look at our world and you'll know why.

pertinent song is pertinent.

(she's so pretty too ;_;

anyways, judging by a couple posts we've hit the problem of evil again.

along with definition of "a god", which is fairly commonly agreed upon by the western-minded deists, I would think.

Problem of evil in summarized format: if God made everything and evil exists, isn't he responsible for that evil, thus-to a degree, evil as opposed to benevolent?

PS: thanks, Nolan, for introduction to the song.
