I was just watching this funny Youtube video when my mind wandered a little and a few random thoughts connected themselves.
According to Geneses 1:26:
Let us make man in our image, in our likeness
and pretty much all classical western religious art depicts god as some big grey bearded elderly gentleman in flowing white robes. So, if God made us to look like him then that means he basically just copied a pre-existing design i.e. his own. That’s plagiarism not Creation or Intelligent Design. Nothing to be revered here.
Yes, I’m ignoring modern apologetics which tries to claim that the passage in Genesis actually means we’re made in Gods image ‘spiritually’ or some other such guff. Hey, if they can ignore evidence why can’t I? Not that I consider any of the arguments of apologetics to be valid arguments mind you.
