I'm sure most of the monotheistic theists here would tell you they never lived in the first place.

Those are dead, all destroyed by Mohamed when he opened Makkah.Some were representing Pious people that came before, then people as some point started worshipping the idols. Some were invented Gods for economic reason. Some were statues found there, then worshiped by the people.People used to worship Idols as a way to get to the true God.

Are you claiming that muhammad actually killed all of the gods he once worshiped? If he can kill those gods, why would his new one be any better? That is simply silly.

well it would seem that The Word of GOD has sometings to say regarding the other gods.
Psalm 86:8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there
any works like unto thy works.

.
It would seem that according to God's Word there were other gods. But of course I'm only using the word of god as evidence of my claim.
If there were other gods, then as my OP asks "are they now dead?"

He destroyed the statutes , these aren't real Gods and can't benefit nor harm anybody, and the God Mohamed called for isn't a new God, it's actually The one true God, that arabs used to know but they used to associate partners when worshipping, basically The God isn't just better, He is the only true God. the one who revealed to tall the previous peophets who called their people in different parts of the earth .

There are other Gods people worshiped yes, and this is just true, but this doesn't make them worthy of worship.

I'm sure the Muslims still have their "tick-ticky-boom-boom" god.

When Muhammad went to the cave to pray before Jibreel gave him the works, to whom was he praying? Since it was his custom to go to this cave to pray and that's where Jibreel found him and gave him the full nelson? WHO was he praying to?

I think the religious would argue the change is akin to if I thought your name was Steve. I've been talking about Steve for a long time...and then I discovered your name was actually bulproof.

As opposed to every OTHER religion, where Steve/bulproof doesn't exist at all.

At least, that's their position.

Nice cop out for an atheist. But unimpressive none the less. There were 360 gods in muhammad's religion and he took himself off to a cave every year to pray. He just got lucky and prayed to the right one each time? An angel came and tried to strangel him because he wouldn't read a book that muhammad forget to bring with him afterwards. Ok I'm convinced.

Is Jesus is heaven, is Jesus coming back... according to mythology only dying gods can come back from the dead and rule the earth...so you all do serve jesus as god , but not now but when he comes back according to your faith of course you will worship him in the name of allah...

He was praying Allah, the creator of the universe according to Abrahamic creed.

The word Allah is Arabic for : The true God, or The only God.

That's why we tell you prophets never worshiped anyone but the true God!!

No we won't worship him ? do you not know what a king is ?! He will be the ruler, and all the believers from all races will believe in him (but there will remain disbelievers)Believe in him means they will believe he is Jesus that God sent back as a king. We will obey him as much as we'd obey a ruler, except that this ruler is special for he will establish the true religion from God, not his own philosophies . and if we obey it's because God commanded us, for He is the one we worship.

show me a source where you get the definiton of allah meaning the true god or the only god in arabic or hebrew.
