I find your interpretation of the Genesis story interesting OP. As a yourht I was raised Catholic. As an adult, I opened my mind to other knowledge. Considering that humans have been on Earth for Millions of years, I'm not sure how anyone can put their complete faith in ANY one book or collection of writings. Although there is wisdom in the bible, I'm as interested in what was in the books that were burned when the Bible was "written", and why those texts were not included...
Perhaps you should look into how as you put it "millions of years" had given us so few inhabitants of this current civilization. We were replenishing the earth (and mingled with bad seed) until God brought the flood as judgment upon the evil leanings that mankind had embarked.
Perhaps John 6:66 will shed some light as to the forming of differing Religions... Religions based on partial teachings not the entire message... perhaps you should get a copy of this book...
which only points out the positive inspiration behind them all rather than the negativity associated with differing views.
Yes man is capable of maintaining a lie and supposed truth by burning libraries like the one in Alexandria... books written of past (come and gone) civilizations.
The Bible is a record of this current civilization alone but does hint at prior civilizations.
We are Blessed to be witness in an age of enlightenment where truth will become self-evident. Hold on to interpretations proffered by man for man rather than seek the wisdom within your very being.
I would consider your short-changing yourself bad enough but to sway others to your mindset borders on a dogma of bias rather than a guidance of inspiration.
There is nothing that you can say that can remove God from the picture, no matter how dark a color you all are so want to paint this picture of creation. Maintaining a static viewpoint of time rather than acknowledge a linear progression of understanding the purpose of God and how it is a threat to the evil that seeks to stand alone (until it falls) is nothing but tunnel vision and cherry-picking meanings that you are still incapable of comprehending short of divine intervention which when it does manifest for all to see will be too late for those who rejected it all along.
This aspect is simple. If you're Omnipresent, you're everywhere at once. This includes all time. If you have two beings that are everywhere at all times, they are 1 because they cannot exist outside of each other. So no matter how many all-powerful Gods you overlay on each other, there's still only 1.

I also agree with you on the fact that "god" talks plural with gods. Sounds political or even scientifically. Like a group of creators.

The earths rotate around the sun every 365 days, which gives life a year old every year. So suppose you had a race that lived on a planet, which does not rotate around the sun at all, or a planet that rotates faster or even slower…how would you age then?
which does not rotate around the sun at all
