Assuming God has to be a one or the other gender.  Would it bother you if God was a woman?  Would it matter?  What do you think?

It might make the creation stories make more sense if the people came form the womb of a woman.

who cares this discussion is pointless as God is referred to many times as a he through out the bible.

Other than the fact that most religions portray God as a man whether it be Christian, Islam, Judaism, or even the Greek, Roman, and Egyptian gods. I personally see no reason to attach gender to a being that is supposed to be omnipotent and omniscient. Wouldn't such a being be beyond such things as gender?

Yes I know the bible says in Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."

But does that mean that God is a man? I don't think so what I think it means is that man/mankind prefer to think of God in terms of being a man. Generally a man that looks like this

[QUOTE]

I would prefer to think of God as something that I couldn't even possibly comprehend the appearance of that in no way I could simplify to the point of saying that God is a man or a woman. I guess the closest thing I could come to a picture of what I would imagine God looked like is this



And honestly I'm sure I'm still way off but I think the 2nd picture would be closer to the truth than the 1st.

If a deity has one of those two genders, then the deity could not create via it's reproductive organs. At least, not sexually. It might have, for the pleasure of it, used it's supreme powers and birthed it's creation through it's womb, or ejaculated it out of it's penis, but the sexual organs weren't necessary for it. Hell, saying God has organs is, itself, blasphemy, isn't it?

Or, God could just be a creation by TPTB to keep the people in line.  And of course the image of God would be of a man because men HAD always had the power. This is the reason why Mary Magdaline was branded a prostitute by the church because she would become a competing influence to the people, competing with the church that is.  Remember, the Bible is not one book written by one person.  It is a collection of dozens of mini-books written by dozens of different people and compiled by the church to convey the information the church wanted conveyed.  Which is where the apochryphal books come in.

No. God is genderless. It's probably because he is a "spirit" person.

Wasn't that a cartoon series in the late 60s- originally?

The only remnant of that series we have today is the Space Yeti sent to us by the Creature King.
