Default Re: theological question: what are the other 'gods' that are talked about in the Bible?

"And the Elhoim said, 'Let US make man in our image and after our likeness'; ONE of them said, "I will place enmity between thy SEED and the SEED of the woman.'" This latter statement stated to a creation of yet another "god" they called Satan (adversary) who was around concurrently.

Genesis, to me, says there were several/many whom the Bible referred to as "gods," especially where/when the creation of Earth man is concerned. Not all of them seemed to like each other. The duality of GOOD and EVIL, LIGHT and DAKNESS, has forever played itself out on the planet.

In addition, it would seem that we have at least two distince "seed lines" who are to be enemies until Gabriel toots his horn.

Since everything is relative and, amongst humans, subjective, besides the suggested differences between the creations, throw in the mix of religions and we can see how far that enmity has taken us.

There's some interesting stuff in the Popul Vu that bears on the "gods" and their creations, too.
