The only knowledge claim the post makes is regarding the number of gods in our history.  The rest is what logically follows.  Take a look at the numbers: 1 in 2000, and you just happened to be born in the country that taught you about the one true god?  What are the odds?  The remark is just there to emphasize this point.

I must say that your "no one knows argument" is getting a bit old and honestly doesn't hold much weight around here.  You are certainly entitled to your own opinions and beliefs, but I would like to remind you that there is plenty of evidence for the natural world.  Not only that, but so far, there is no need for a supernatural power to explain this grand universe.  I (and other atheists) concede that it is possible that you are right and there is a god, but given what we do know thus far it's not at all probable.

D. Multiple of the gods are real :)

There's got to be some whose existence would not be incompatible with the possibility of the existence of others.

+1 clever point to the first person who can find multiple gods from multiple pantheons whose existences would not preclude the existence of any of the others.

Humans are the only true gods in the universe

Oh, silly ol' Josiah, is that you? :D

2,000, nahhhh, must be way more. What was the threshold for god-hood ?
If it doesn't include archaeopteryx's ego, something is wrong.

God loves ME more than those non-christians and unrepentant "sinners" that have to suffer and go to hell, that doesn't sound arrogant to you?

'Cept most Christians don't believe unrepentant sinners "have to suffer and go to hell".

IMHO, could also mean 'in my humble opinion'.

I expect that we are a little more than your common primate. The 'angels/gods' idea from Shakaspeer(miss-spelling intended) might make us feel a little better....;p).

I'll give you a hint. It's not number 1 or 2!
