I'd say, it is hard to presume that faith in ancient gods simply disappeared. That it weakened and was trotted and beaten into underground by mainstream religion, that is obvious. But some folks are very very stubborn and those egregores, or gods, are still around. They surely have no such might as say YHWH, what is a dominant deity as of now, but they surely still have their worshipers.
And where there are two that believe in same god, that god exists. Weak, dying, struggling - but it is. Egregore is created.

Thing is, those who took over 65% of population with their god/egregore, KNEW how to overpower minds and those who simply believed into ancient gods - did not. So they lost. Knowledge is power. Literally.

IF Im not mistaken, God did not banish the fallen angels to hell or some abyss, he cast them down to earth...among us!!

This seems a lot like locking the fox INSIDE the hen house as punishment.

Where, in the Torah, does it detail this belief of yours?...
