In bible says, God created man in his own image;Does it mean man just looks like him or he's exactly like him in shape and form?

This is a question for theologians, philosophers and biblical scholars. It's not for grammarians.

But let me ask you a few questions arising from the grammar of this sentence.

How do you think women fit in here?

Do you think God is male? Or female? Or both?

book bee 913In the Bible it says, God created man in his own image. Does it mean man just looks like him or he's exactly like him in shape and form?

I have no idea. But Michelangelo, the Italian artist, did. And this is what he imagined.

Lucas Cranach the Elder, a German artist, had a different idea.

Good question. If you get the answer, you will be the first person in history to know for sure what that means. I was thinking about this very thing the other day after watching Planet Earth, and I think it means that God is an alimentary tube. But I am sure that's a minority opinion.

Some people say this is more evidence of the ancient astronaut theory.

It seems to me that it's the other way around.

It could be a misprint or a mistranslation. Emotion: wink

I see your point. There is considerable evidence for it.

Grammar wise,God is a male figure,but I know that god is an entity of literally infinite expanse and saying that god is a male or female is funny if not foolish;Imagine if windows operating system wanted to find out who or what its maker is,which is Bill Gates,do you think it'd be possible?I don't think it'd be possible;a creation can never possibly come close to discovering even one tiny bit of the creator's essence.

No, Bill Gates wrote DOS. He hired others to write the current Windows operating system. It was a team effort.
