What the bible means when it says that we are created in the “image of God” is that we have the capacity for the “word” and an eternal soul.
Can you explain that in deeper detail? What do you mean by 'capacity' and how does an eternal soul constitute as an image of "God"?

In Genesis, its say's God could be heard walking in the garden! So was that Jesus walking through the garden?
john says that the word was and then the word was made flesh.
I like the story of enki and enlil , and I think you call them advanced beings, from Sumerian txt, but I would like to add that God and angels to us would be Alien !

This is how I feel it to be:
Before time, there was a oneness. The oneness "said": "I am one, let me be many" and the oneness created the Universe. A prerequisite for the Universe to exist is duality. Without duality (yin & yang), there couldn't be any relations between anything - the oneness couldn't be many.
The oneness is pure consciousness. We are human. Humans are conscious. We created ourselves to witness ourself. We ARE God.
Jesus, one of "us", had a very viable message... we all have the power & the way to everlasting life. Religion is not a necessity.
