Hello all. Im very new to this forum writting and discussing business.

I have learned over the years in my studying that nothing is what it seems.lol.

To me life is always about challenging and questioning things.

One day they said the earth was flat, it wasnt.

They said that getting to the moon was impossible, it is not we as a people are looking to go to venus or jupitor.

like I said nothing is what it seems.!

I find it amazing that we think of the universal creator (if he/she/it exists) has sex organs.

I think if it exists, and I lean toward yes, in some form, that it is NOT in our image.

Love your thinking guys.

Right, I did not state God as a woman with genitila, if I did soz about that.

Secondly the reason I brought up this question, is simply why does one think or assume that God resembles a father like figure; what just because the bible says so.

I dont think so.

As for everything else, well.

Why is that most things in this world that are portrayed by women are negative. Women are always placed second place (or as a an equal-lol), it does not matter if it is in the household, or in the outside world.

King/Queen. Father/mother. Brother/sister. man/woman.

I could go on but u get what Im trying to put over.

But, if u were to question this concept, just for a moment certain things start to change, like the factor of mother nature and farther time, or looking at the plant, insect, or even the animal world, its always the female that comes in front of the male species not the other way around.

Then in some cases, you have a same sex specices, maybe this is what God actually is!

Just my thoughts peeps, what do guys on ats think.

GOD is both male and female, serpent and bird, stone and water, light and darkness, the Alpha the Beta and the Omega.

GOD is everything as everything was created by GOD.

So it is impossible to define GOD as being a women without acknowledging that GOD is also a man as GOD is also stone as GOD is the wind and the earth.

In ancient times people used to worship the godess because she was the bringer of life.

Later is turned into a male god, and the church was born.

TOTALLY RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!
God is not a man with a big white beard sitting on a trone!
God is an energy that is within all of us, all of our souls... Each human have a soul that is a part of god....when you pray, you pray that energy that is stronger than anything else

Don't worry.....keep faith in that energy that lives in you

god is whatever you think it is.
Man, woman, goat, turtle, cow, nothing, everything.

Whatever makes you feel right.
There are as many gods, as there are people that believe in the slightly archaic concept of one.

God is eveything.......

To a certain degree I think that statement is very true.

But, to dismiss everything as God! (Even Satan!)

I personally think that God is all powerful and all seeing but beyond that, other factors take a stance. Like the saying that everything has a part to play in this stage that we call the world. (Or even the universe).

Like I said, God as an overseer bettering the future for us as a people with the band of helpers (like us, the children, forces of nature and other factors that bring about the goodness of life) against the likes of Satan and the oppersite of what God wants.

To me that seems more like it, I could be wrong though.

No way in the world a woman is responsible for all the butchery through the ages wrapped in the guise of religion. In fact, it's almost always men who assume they have a hotline to the Almighty and that "God" has shown fit to give them the high sign to kick off the inquisition, or liberate a country. GW Bush is a perfect case in point, IMO.

Women don't start wars claiming it's been sanctifed by a higher power.
Bah!

Hellbunny I agree with your point.

I think its very amusing.

Me personally, I say there is nothing wrong with having a woman for prsiedent or prime minister, or a black pesron or a gay person or how about a bisexual.

Now theres something I would vote for!

But then scince there is an agenda like the nwo. It really does not matter does it.

Everyone was given freewill to choose what they want to do w/ their lives and that same freewill is given to us to decide what our concept of our Higher Power is.

Personally, when I say the Lord's Prayer, I substitute Our father, for Our Mother, simply because I believe it to be very biased to assume that God is one gender or the other. I don't believe God has a sex; It is true that God is in everything - every particle and atom we know of.

And as far as God creating Satan....That is totally man (MAN) made. Just like most religious doctrines support the idea of God being a 'father' - Men back then just couldn't even fathom the idea that God may be a woman. HEAVEN FORBID!!!! A WOMAN!!!! Then they might not be the dominant species of the planet.

God IS......It's as simlple as that.

You have expressed yourselves clearly! Please do so again.

What is a perfect man?

What is a perfect woman?

How do you raise your son to be perfect? What do you teach him about this?

How do you raise your daughter to be perfect? What do you teach her about this?

If you are looking for God, then you should be looking for perfection. WIthout a knowledge of perfection, you will never find God.

thats ridiculous. why do you even bother saying the lords prayer, if you dont believe the lord?

you might as well be praying to stones, it will do you the same good

The god of the bible, is called father. no use in substituting his name with "auntie" or whatever else you like, he will not hear you.

If anything is possible then one must consider the possibility of a supreme being being gendered as well. This is, of course, to make a strong presumption on the nature of the universe itself. If, as some claim, God is all encompassing and truely the very nature of the universe itself, it would mean that everything as we know it is has a certain gender assigned to it as well...from the smallest grain of sand to the largest of Helium and Hydrogen powered stars. The fact is we just do not have enough information or mental capability to fathom the nature of such a grand question.

One thing is for sure though. On the relatively small scale that our world encompasses in the grand scheme of things there are creatures that are non-gendered and take on asexual characteristics. This in itself, effectively proves that not every "living" thing has been given a certain "sex" to follow. This brings up an interesting point...

There are two things were are talking about here...sex, and gender. They are completely different concepts even in the literal meaning of the words. "Gender" is an implied notion that can be altered by the subject at will, and is usually prescribed to a person by there appearance. However, it is completely possible for a Male to take on the "Gender" of a female and likewise with a female. "Sex" is a term used to generally describe the sexual function of the subject, and rarely can be completely altered. One is born to a certain sex, and not to a "gender". With these terms comes the all too common misconceptions about what they mean, and this is where one of the main problems with this thread lies.

Are we asking if a Godly figure is denotated as belonging to a certain "sex" group, or a certain "gender" group? By the way people have been answering I would assume we are going on the basis of the "sex of God" and not the "Gender of God". If we were truely analyzing a set gender role prescribed to God one would easily see that this supreme being often falls into both the Male and Female gender roles (ie Female=compassion, love, understanding, etc. and Male=strength, vengence, lust, etc.) Now, as for the "sex" of a Godly figure, we are left only to ponder if the nature of a being that creates even asexual creatures as mentioned before, as well as bacteria, etc., which do not have a sex group is a part of a sex group itself... That is a very tough question to answer, and one fully worth an answer, but asking humans will get you nowhere. Humans are fallible, and with fallacy comes ignorance...ignorance of something we will never fully understand if it does exist. This is not to say there is NO answer, but merely that at this point in time, one cannot fully grasp the idea of such a question...let alone answer it.

Also, to look a godly figure one would have to relinquish the feeling that God is "as exactly described in the Christian Bible". This is an essential point, because each religion on earth views its creator/creators differently. To some a "God" figure has not sex, and to others God is attributed to either the Male or Female sex. To know the true nature of what one seeks to find, they must look at all possible variations avaliable and then formulate their own ideas about such a large question. To completely negate over 3/4 of the rest of the human population that God supposedly created, would be to deny what God itself created and bestowed upon the rest of humanity. To draw a parallel from this one could easily argue that this is where religious intolerance begins, but that is for another argument and another thread.

Now, as far as the question of why many things "womanly" are often described as evil...

There is a theory that has gained both a lot of acceptance and a lot of ridicule in the past. It is called the Great Goddess Theory, and historically speaking there is just as much evidence to prove it may be real as there is to prove it is not. In essence, and without going into the plethora of material on the subject women and a "womanly" religion once dominated the cultural and spiritual centers of humanity. Long story short...the men grew weary of women ruling over them, even if it was a peaceful time, and eventually took over the role, changed everything to a male dominated culture, and began the suppression of women. Whether you believe this theory is up to you and as I stated previously there is evidence both ways, but it may be an answer to the original posters questions.

The only way to answer such a question is to know the very composition of the universe/universes and beyond. As it stands, we are capable of neither knowing ourselves nor the makeup of "everything else".

Jazzerman great post.

I you look at the history of earth and the beginin of religion you will notice how define the gender of the God in the bible is, and how women was relegated to be blame for the original sin.

What a way to keep women under foot and undercontrol with ole bible book.

Of course its a possibility, why wouldn't it be? Following Christianity on this one...if God was created in our image, why not a woman? If not, then women would be mutants and second class to the human race, meaning we dont have souls.

What???

Nope. And you can't say "well..the BIble on says 'he'." That's because MEN wrote the bible, and once again, their god- their image.

Wooohooo!

PLus, women are just better at that whole creating-the-planet-angry-wrath-of-god type thing. I mean, have you ever seen a girl fight??
