Because there is only ONE reality that we (and you atheists) have evidence of (one universal field) and must accept. Ergo . . . One reality = one God/Creator.

Pretty meaningless statement. One reality, several creators, that is certainly the reality for more than a number of the world's religions. I think that you are going to have to dig a bit deeper in your bag of rhetorical tricks to defend the one reality, one god, mantra.

I have no, nor have I seen any evidence of what you suggest (one universal field) It is simply your supposition, and as far as I know you are the only one that must accept it since it is merely a creation of your own mind.

Only if you assume . . . (and I'm pretty sure you don't) . . . that human opinions are what determine reality.

Still dancing around the question I see. Dig deeper.

Since I essentiallly assert that reality determines reality . . (regardless what is at issue, God or anything else) . . . I am at a loss as to how to dig any deeper than that.

Ummm... The universal field is practically a necessity given our current understanding(s) of physics. That's what The Higgs Boson (otherwise known as "The God Particle") and other theories like Superstring Theory seek to explain.
