It is estimated there are over 4,000 religions in the world. Most of these are forms of monotheism or polytheism. Monotheists only recognize a single deity and Polytheists recognize multiple deities (in most cases). Monotheism is a term for a belief system based on the belief in a single deity. Religions that are considered examples of monotheism include Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Polytheism is a term for a belief system based on the belief in multiple deities. Prominent examples are Hinduism and Buddhism.” (Wiki)

“Theism is the belief in the existence of a god or gods. Theists believe that god or gods created the world and everything in it, and they also believe that god or gods are responsible for the functioning of the world. Theists also believe that god or gods have a purpose for everything that happens in the world. There are many different types of theism, including monotheism, polytheism, and pantheism. Monotheism is the belief in one god, while polytheism is the belief in multiple gods. Pantheism is the belief that god is everything and everything is god. Theism is not a scientific belief, as there is no scientific evidence for the existence of god or gods. However, many people believe in theism, and it is an important part of many people‘s lives.” (TEWAI)
