So why is God speaking in pluralities?

Majestic Plural: Back in the day when there was higher emphasis on grammar and eloquent composition, the Majestic Plural was used instead of singularity to express an elevated social status above common folk. "We the King of England" for example.
Trinitarian Christians do not understand the concept of the Majestic Plural and ignorantly use the words "We," "Us," "Our," etc. as justification to believe in a god-trinity.

I don't see why an omnipotent deity / creator god, with the powers most humans attribute to 'it', would need to talk at all?
Or go 'down' in order to confuse a global human language, when surely a wave of a proverbial hand, or the simple intent alone would suffice.
Travelling among humanity in order to confuse us?
Doesn't sound like a god that can create a whole world in and everything in and on it, in a little under a week!
ET's...meddling ET's at that...get used to it.

They too were created in God's own image.

You don't suppose One person made everything, do you? God is the boss, below him is among others Michael, Satan, Gabriel, the Seraphim, the Cherubim, and according to Gnostic writings millions of other angelic beings, and according to Enoch many of these are also named, like Raphael, Uriel, Raziel, Ezazeel, and a bunch more. There is only one God, but many angels and lesser gods below him in the hierarchy.
But as for God's name being a plural form of Eloah -- Elohim, this is due to the name being plural intesive, so called majesty pluralis. I honestly don't see why this is so strange.
