Can we leave an instruction book - stone tablets perhaps - explaining we are not gods, and that they should adopt a rational moral code that does not require our approval, or approbation.
"Hey look, it says here right off that we shouldn't worship them as gods, and that we shouldn't call them gods. But since this was clearly written by the gods, it must be a translation problem. Surely it means we shouldn't worship any other gods, and that we shouldn't call them gods without reason. Okay guys, first rule: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. And, Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. There, that about covers it for worshiping other gods or calling these guys gods. What's it say next? Don't kill, lie, cheat, or steal. Well yeah, that's pretty obvious. But since it's so obvious why'd they throw in this weird part about the rationale not being based on a system of rewards and punishments? Are you sure the word 'not' belongs there? See, it makes a whole lot more sense if you just strike that one word. Otherwise it makes about as much sense as pointing to a tree and saying, 'See that delicious fruit? Don't eat that.' What kind of idiot would do such a thing?"
