Weak God Or Gods

My opinion, based on how I see reality, is that a supernatural exists, and what humans have called god or gods exist, but the latter are weak. They are not creators of the universe but are rather more like angels.

They can be more powerful than humans in the sense of having more info available to them- like they read minds. But in terms of actual physical influence on the world, I think that humans as a whole are much more powerful. I base this on my observation that the so-called god or gods spend so much time trying to influence us verbally. If they were truly strong, why bother to influence us. Why not just make what they want happen.

Instead they seem to create conflict and use the conflict to achieve good ends- totally the ends justifying the means.

So for this to be true, I think these gods are just some higher order beings that know how things are bound to go and are trying to help us survive. It follows that we can sometime in the future, perhaps after many births (on the physical or higher levels) be gods for some other fledgling planet. At least that is the thought in some recent Hindu writings, like the "Autobiography of a Yogi".
