Where does Judaism believe the other gods originate from? If Hashem is the only G.od where did everyone get their notion of a deity from?
For example the ancient Egyptians had half-human and half-animal deities, same with the Greeks with centaurs. Where did these mythical creatures come from? Is there any basis to their [those gods] existence or is it complete hogwash?
I am not Chas vsholom suggesting that they are deities, my question is whether they [the half-human half-animal or other mythical creatures] are based on anything other than someone's imagination.
