Nope, that would be a heterosexual act, hence why I said males who sexually assault little boys. Female pedophiles are extremely rare in comparison to male ones though.

Why would we need to be created?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Scripture also says that the gods were created.

We are not talking about "the gods", were are talking about Yahweh.

Philosophical conclusions about God are so damn confusing. I don't think that God's existence can be proved through philosophy. However, I think the same for the opposite.

Actually Stat,Judaism was not monotheistic until after Exodus. The latest achaeology shows a female deity was still being widely worshipped (by THOUSANDS) in Israel as as late as the seventh century bce.

Are you talking about the Jewish God JHVH ? Yod, Heh, Vau, Heh(with points)

Thought you were a defender of JHSVH. An aspect of the Jewish God.

Sorry, English does not translate well into Hebrew.
