    Genesis:

    26 Then God said, o“Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

    male and female he created them.

    s“Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

    So based on Monotheism, this is case closed, isn't it?

    Yes.

    Man made God in his own image.

    Odd thing to agree to. Being someone who believes in God.

    I guess I thought, when you said you believed in God, you believed it was something beyond the invention of humankind.

    Do you believe in yourself?

    Of course (see Descartes). Then again, I am not God. Nor am I supernatural.

    In my religion God, and his angels are the union man and spirit. So yes God is a man.

    Are you saying that God is a man with a spirit belonging to an angel or all the angels he created?

    Where is he in your opinion?

    God is the union of man and spirit.

    Yes, like man except a brighter halo.

    If horses were to visualize god
    then god would look like a horse
    If cows were to visualize god
    then god would look like a cow
    In the religion I was brought up in, Jesus was visualized as germanic/celtic
    Would this be true of Ethiopians?

    Best idea would be to have god appear so we can see rather than speculate but I doubt that will happen as one of the consequences of an eternal universe would be no god.

    No idea. When I look into a dogs eyes/eye sockets I see God.

    To whom would it be meaningful to discuss God as something less than the summum bonum?
    Or to put it another way, what class of person has a vested interest in ascribing mediocrity to God?

    No God cannot be a human because God simply does not exist.

    All the evidence I have seen so far (from many sources) confirms that God simply does not exist.

    The world would have been a much better place if there was a God because maybe he/she would actually help people who need help in their lives.

    These religion threads are becoming pointless and annoying because there is simply no good science content in them.

    These religion threads are actually ruining the credibility of this science forum (because there is no science in them) and this is partly the reason why I don't come to sciforums anymore.

    LOVE is eternal. Can there be learning and creation if it only happens once?

    Love can only be eternal in the Eternal Universe..love can not be eternal if the Universe is finite.

    The Eternal Universe was not created and the only creation is the creation of life in general and the creation of objects and ideas by humans and no doubt others of whom we have no knowledge.
    Worlds form and crumble, stars are born and die but due to natural process unguided by the hand of any creator.

    You don't know that, unless you have proof?

    "sci" might mean sci fi. Whatever it means, I rarely interact with the science threads and this site is the most interesting forum I ever found.

    Maybe it's best if God doesn't help. He is a serial killer, among other things.

    Religion has got nothing to do with science unless a religion is challenging a scientific idea/theory.

    Comeback, just don't use the religion forum maybe.
