God is seen as a grey-bearded sky man who actively intervenes in our lives and gives us everything we want and punishes our enemies. It could not be more obvious that god was made in man's image.

The biggest fallacy of it all is that any christian will tell you that god doesn't have a physical body, he's an ultra powerful, supernatural force that is imperceptible, yet we all occupy weak physical, human bodies. How the hell could anyone possibly think that we were made in his image?

God, from every shred of evidence we have, is imaginary, thus could not have created anything. God is an idealized version of humanity and the God of the Bible is every bit as petty, mean, cruel and obnoxious as the men who created him.

I vote for choice B, god represents the ultimate human fabrication. . . naturally we made it in our own image.

And God populated the Earth with tiny versions of Himself, two of them interestingly enough. Maybe He/She switches at sunset?

Yea, and the social media dating scene must've been pretty scarce back then.

Is that what you get when you read the story of Jesus?

Are you one of those Christians who only reads the parts of the Bible that you like and ignores the rest?
