Since man was allegedly made in the image of the Creator, it is reasonable to assume that God possesses a penis. However, since Jewish men are circumcised as a symbol of the covenant between God and Abraham, and there is no mention in the bible of that working both ways, it is also fair to assume that God’s penis remains intact. Interestingly, several...

Wildwood, I was just going to make a serious answer to your Q, but decided to have a quick look at your previous posts before making myself look a fool. I'm glad I did. :))
Perhaps you should have posted in Jokes. ;)
I'll simply add a link, have no great views on this.

That's the end off it as far as I am concerned...
LOL @ shoota!
Not physical image. Corporal beings need physical bodies; nothing to indicate spiritual ones do.

No Cloverjo. I have been known to post the odd serious question, and this is one of them.
In Mamyalynne's link it states that Jesus was circumcised. But men were created well before he send his spirit down in the form of Jesus.

So who did him before he created Humans? If god indeed 'emerged' into being with a short flap, did he make a mistake when he created Men!
So Wildwood, are you suggesting that God looks like a penis wearing a turtle neck jumper, sweater for our American friends.

And human kind decided that the wrinkly collar should be removed?
depends a lot on your prepucepositions.
Was god circumcised?

Jesus mother Mary being the only one to have ever been in a position to possess such knowledge (Biblically speaking) evidently took that secret with her to the grave.

Interestingly, several churches around the world have over the years claimed to be in possession of a very special relic – the foreskin of Jesus – and Leo Allatius, a 17th century Vatican librarian, claimed that, like Jesus, the Holy Prepuce ascended and became the rings of Saturn. How he reached that conclusion is anyone’s guess, but there you are. Quite bizarre!
yeah I was gonna say the internet says it is part of the Abrahamic covenant - I thought it was after a battle but I can't be *** to re read Genesis

all this is a bit anthropo morphic innit
( thinking of God in the image of man )
ya know - is it better sit on God right hand side and the lesser immortals get the left .... and the proles get a seat at the back
Seraphim at every angle shielding his face

I thougth we were in a post modern age [ =- God isnt like that ]
ho hum we arent on AB

That makes sense Naomi. So making Men promise to mutilate their progeny so they wouldn't look as good as the Big Guy just to elevate his ego. It must be mutilation because an 8 day old boy can hardly proclaim his servitude.
'God', so far as I understand, is sexless - gender has been assigned by a male-dominated mankind so the question is baseless. For 'Man', read 'Mankind' in my understanding and that word includes the female. Jesus was circumcised because he was born a male, Jewish baby - that's all. I cannot possibly believe that anyone, anywhere kept his foreskin.
As the partners of uncircumsised men are more likely to develop cervical cancer than partners of those men who are not ... therefore the wives of muslim and jewish men historically have a lower incident of this life threatening cancer ... it maybe that god gave people the wherewithall to protect their females from cancer and only muslims and jews responded .............
//...because an 8 day old boy...//

Some African tribes do it at puberty. I remember seeing a documentary a long time ago on the Masai. Remember it well because Miss World was on TV at the same time, and I thought how much brighter and better looking the young Masai women being interviewed were than the "I want to travel and help people" girls on the other show. The Masai boys were given a lot of beer prior to the snip, and then were sent off into the bush for five or six years. This seemed an excellent arrangement - all that adolescent strop and aggression, but no-one to take it out on except each other and the occasional passing lion.

Remember once on a visit to my sister-in-law driving through Transkei and seeing the Xhosa boys after their circumcision ceremony. The whole of their bodies, face included, were covered in mud which had dried a near white in the sun.Everywhere you went you could troops of these skinny ghosts tramping along the roadside. Bought a load of avocados from one lad for a few cents, but the whole lot had gone off by the time we returned to Jo'burg.

So God made a 'cock up' by giving men forskins in the first place?
