Who's to say God isn't exactly the same? He just happened to win out in the end, with a large portion of the entire planet's population believing in him, as opposed to only a few (relatively) low population countries believing in the older gods even at the height of their power.
Considering that they were around first, at least as far as anyone knows (I think Judiasm only goes back to about 1800 BC or so, and only came about because Abraham was tired of all the pagan gods running around at the time), it's a pretty safe bet to back.
Honestly, reality itself seems to be all about the power of belief. There's simply no way to rectify all the different creation myths, especially those that predate the Christian one by millennia. This episode alone demonstrated that Mount Olympus was real, that both the titans and Greek gods were real, and that they had origins pretty much on par with what mythology states. Which means they, too, ''created the world'' in a way that contradicts what the Bible says.
In the end, I just have to assume that whichever mythology is winning at the time is the "true" story as reality twists and contorts itself to make it true. Should science and reason ever replace religion in the setting, I'd bet a million bucks that it really was a random Big Bang that created the universe, not God.
At least until another theory or belief system takes hold, anyway.
Got to say this is pretty deep. Sadly ive learned more about God, pagan gods, Angels etc from watching supernatural. Same as i learned alot about fairy tales from Once Upon a Time.
On the show i look at things like this: God created Leviathan's first and got rid of them, and maybe at same time or after he created lesser Gods that we call Pagan Gods.
When God seen that wasnt working out, then he created Angels.
Maybe he wasnt really hands on with earth and had help with this Pagan gods doing most of the work and just him taken credit for it.
