Amidst all the verbage you seem to say that the last Buddha said that a man could become a Buddha, but not a god, implying that god existed.

The Tibetian form of Buddhism, as exemplified by the Dai Lama differs with you as they claim to be atheists. They say there is no god.There is a supernatural but no god.

Nowhere in the references to the Lotuses that you provided could I find any reference to a god. If I missed it would you point it out.

My current opinion is that all forms of Buddhism that refer to a god are distortions of the original teaching of Buddha. Please demonstrate for me that your beliefs are not so distorted.
