Why God created man?
Because he wanted to create a succesor. He knows he can't be around forever, and so he needed to create a being, that he could groom over time.

While I do not subscribe to any particular religion, I do feel that there is a creator, but I am not sure whether to attach human bipedal attributes to (him?) it. If I do consider the "made in his image" bit, then I would speculate we are his children and we are here to learn and practice becoming gods one day. Sounds nice anyways....
"Some of the topics in this forum will most certainly deal with the existence of God. Does God really exist? While this is a worthwhile topic many members wish to move past this introductory theme, past Religion 101, and would like to dive into deeper topic of religion and faith... We can't begin to truly discuss these topics if we're constantly arguing about if God is real or not... If you have questions that deal with the existence of God or want to ask if Mohammed actually was a real person or a myth, then please start a new discussion with a meaningful, appropriate title and you may then dominate a new discussion with this theme in mind. Please do not interject into deeper religious topics the question of the reality of a higher being. Unless stated in the topic, we are assuming in this forum that we've moved on past that point. Imagine discussing algebra while someone keeps interjecting that they still don’t believe in addition."
