### To further elaborate - If we agree that a god is somebody who can
do really cool stuff (e.g. easily create extremely large mathematical
structures, like QM-quality simulations of galaxies) and given that
the multiverse is infinitely large in terms of patterns of existence
contained in it, there must be an infinity of distinct entities
fitting this loose definition, even if they may affect only an
infinitesimally small measure of everything. So, it's not just one
god, there is a whole lot more. Halleluja, anybody?
