Contradictions In The Quran: How Many Creators Are There?

Question: How many creators are there?
Then fashioned We the drop a clot, then fashioned We the clot a little lump, then fashioned We the little lump bones, then clothed the bones with flesh, and then produced it as another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators! -- Sura 23:14
Will ye cry unto Baal and forsake the Best of creators, ... ?-- Sura 37:125
How can it be that Allah is the best of creators (plural)? What other creators are in view when the Qur'an makes these statements?
Answer: GM is a creator, Ford is a creator, Microsoft is a creator, all artists are creators.... But God is the only one who allowed the existence of other creators since he created them and the materials they use in their creation. No one can make better than his creation. No one will be able to create billions of stars.
