Why do we think of "God" as male when he/she/it may be something entirely different?


In the Bible we read that "God" made man and woman. This seems to imply that "God" is neither man nor woman. Yet all of the post-diluviun religions consistently refer to "God" as a male. This is done even though in the Hebrew text "Gods" names are all of a feminine gender save one. Why is this?
