I don't know where to put this... I suppose this is the place. We've got Thor and Zeus.... We've got many Hindu views of Gods which have various human or animal characteristics. We've got Michelangelo and his commissioned ceiling in the chapel... We've got "He" and "Him" 'walking', 'talking', 'thinking', getting 'mad', 'vengeful', 'loving', 'spiteful'. Even thou I don't believe in a humanistic G!d being, or entity...my most comfortable anthropomorphism is a child me laying cradled in the ample bosom grandmotheresque G!d. Do you believe in a G!d made in man's image? With human traits (and foibles)? or is it out of convenience of language, or not calling G!d ...'it' that causes you to give G!d gender and human characteristics? To you is it metaphor (anthropomorphism) or real?
