I do not understand the above to be directly responsive to any of the
questions I posed, the crux one being:

Since there seems to be a problem with commuincation, let me ask my
question a different way:
- Suppose you could push a button and instantaneously cause everyone
on Earth to not be a monotheist.
- Is there any sheaf of risk likelihoods that would keep you from
pushing that button?
I'm not asking for paragraphs, I'm asking for a response of yes, no or "mu".
You are free to not oblige.
