Once you posit one all powerful all knowing creator of everything, you're done. Everything else is second rate, and thus unworthy of being a god. The previous gods become either false gods or higher beings explainable through science fiction which might become science fact in the future....but they cannot remain gods.

What kind of god do you want/propose?
One whose policies are demonstrably moral.

That eliminates Yahweh and Allah whose policies are demonstrably immoral.

I know this as a fact because Christians and Muslims always run from discussions on the morality of their gods.
