But the only time you will encounter groups of people who, as a society, do not worship a wide variety of Goddesses and Gods is if that worship has been systematically and violently suppressed among those people.
Like language, dancing, music, art, cuisine and other natural expressions of human nature, polytheism takes on an essentially infinite variety of forms. It is foolish almost beyond comprehension to try to sort through this great diversity in search of "true" polytheism. It is equally foolish to artificially define arbitrary criteria for delineating "hard" polytheism with the intention of denigrating other forms of polytheism as being "soft" and, therefore, in some sense deficient.
