If god made man in his own image, then he's flawed. Who wants to be made in the image of a genocidal maniac anyway? A god who (according to the Bible) orders the destruction of entire communities to be put to death by the sword, fire, burial alive, mauled by bears, starvation, ad infinitum. (if youve ever bothered to read the 'holy book' The God of the Bible is not...

He got Mary pregnant....
By definition a diety is a deity and not human.
"He got Mary pregnant...."

I was expecting more of a reaction to what was intended to be a jokey question. The truth is that man created god in his own image : I mean the believers wouldn't want god to look like ET would they !. As a lifelong atheist, I believe in reason, logic and explanations which form the basis of science.
If he created man in his own image, what did he use as inspiration to create woman?
No you have it the wrong way round, humans make gods in their image, from their dreams and nightmares, allowing them traits such as anger, love,pleasure , because humans know they are important. We want them o be bigger and better versions of what we value, but they end up spiteful vindictive and cruel because that is what we see all around us.
God is a spirit he does not have a bodily.
But being omnipotent it can have any body it desires; if it desires, human weakness that.

goodlife : so god does not have a bodily. Maybe he has a body though !.
He must have. He liked a good barbeque.
Bodily functions? Well, when he wees, it rains. I know this because my gran told me when i was knee-high to a grasshopper.
You've brought back memories, Ken. We weren't told that - I would never have gone out in the rain - yuk! - but when it thundered we were told it was God moving his furniture around.
Stupid question!
We used our own imaginations as to what he was doing when it thundered, Naomi :-))
Why is putting a full stop after a question mark or an exclamation mark getting ever more popular on AB?.
God knows, roy. ;o)
"He got Mary pregnant." Tosh! Everybody knows it was Joseph's next door neighbour who did the dirty deed.
Khandro, //Stupid question! //

Why is it a stupid question? What do you think 'made in his own image' means?

Naomi: I assume that the questioner has an age of 6 & can be forgiven, but you, considering how often this has been answered can not, however for I hope the last time;

Imago Dei ("image of God")
Is a theological term, applied uniquely to humans, which denotes the symbolical relation between God and humanity. The term has its roots in Genesis 1:27, wherein "God created man in his own image. . ." This scriptural passage does not mean that God is in human form, but rather, that humans are in the image of God in their moral, spiritual, and intellectual nature. Thus, humans mirror God's divinity in their ability to actualize the unique qualities with which they have been endowed, and which make them different than all other creatures: rational structure (see logos), complete centeredness, creative freedom, a possibility for self-actualization, and the ability for self-transcendence.
