    Edit. Blah i thought i invented a witty new saying that reflects the truth, but apparently some guy invented that already in 1841
    yes it is absurd to believe the creator of the universe and life exists in the form of a man in ultimate construction as God Almighty. Man is just a form he can take at will. Also the Bible has been tampered with by man over thousands of years to create this image. I am an Angel i know about such things

    My dear Angelic Doctor, don't you think the universe is far more interesting than religious imaginings?

    Sounds reasonable. Because nobody has probably really seen the god so we wouldn't know how he is and id he is a man at all or just something else, or maybe he doesn't exsist at all. But if he would exsist, it's easier to imagine him as a man than as some other life form (and why a man anyway, why not a woman?).

    In many times and cultures, "God" has been a woman, or both.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    personally i would prefer shemale god, but the original saying is 'god created man in his image', so i used man also. in some more civilized languages than english, the word man is switched to what translates to human.

    Shemale sounds totally worth of worshipping.

    If I recall the Bible correctly, it says, "God created man in his own image; male and female he created them". This suggests that both male and female are part of the image of God. Many people use "he" as the default, partly for convenience, and partly for less noble purposes.

    Was the original definition of "man" referring to mankind?

    Some translations now use "humanity" in place of "man", so I suspect it does. In any case, as soon as the "male and female" part comes in, it is no longer male/he only.

    i hate it that english is so sexist language that it doesent have he/she/his/hers/him/her type of words for human. a lot of the times when the person has unknown gender, you need to say he/she or assume that the person is male.
