It’s a simple concept, really.

Sh’ma Yisroel, Hashem Elokeinu, Hashem Echad. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is unique.

Other cultures had their pantheons, packed with gods of every description. All of them loosely modeled on humans and replete with the whole laundry list of human frailties. Envy, jealousy, hatred, lust, greed, you name it. So complicated. And so wrong.

“All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the best one.” William of Ockham said that. My idea, of course. Everything’s my idea, at the end of the day.

One God. That’s Me. What could be simpler?
