              No god required to understand living your life.
              No god required to understand why you live your life.
              No god required to understand anything about your life at all.
              No god required to understand yourself.
              No god required to understand your actions.
              No god required to understand knowledge you gain.
              No god required to understand the fact that you make all choices.


              Therefore, no god required to be existence.

                  It's a shock and awe effect from gaining awareness(consciousness) of your own life and the world you live in. It's you truly not understanding your own life. So, you feel the need to believe.
                  What does it matter on your own individual life?

                  You only have to understand your own life. It's not required for you to understand why the human species exists, to live your life, be your own authority, learn to love yourself, to always keep learning and love your fellow human beings. It brings peace and harmony, when done properly. No god required.
                  The Universe itself is a recycling energy source that builds/creates life. The Universe has it's own cycle. No need for a god or a hand of a god. It sustains itself and when it reaches it's time to reset it's cycle, it will do so.

              Did you miss the point about "It was Man who invented God and not the other way around" ?


                It is Man who uses God to scare people, organised religion is a manmade power thing always was.  I tell you to do something you just ask "Who the Hell are you to tell me what to do?"

                I say "God told me to tell you to do it or else !... You are more like to do what I tell you."

                    Here is a sample of the "good"

                      If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, "You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord." When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through.   (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

      It is probably not accurate to view God as a woman, though the Bible does show God's feminine side, so to speak. Jesus once said...

          "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing." (Matthew 23:37)

      Also, God's wisdom in the Proverbs is personified as a female (e.g., Proverbs 1:20, 8:11, 9:1), yet we are told in the New Testament that Jesus is the Wisdom of God (1Corinthians 1:24).

      But, for the most part, God has chosen to reveal Himself in the Bible as having a male personage. The Bible is inspired of God (2Timothy 3:16), and in it God is always referred to as a "Him" or a "He." So God wanted people to understand Him as a "Him" and a "He."

    Well it would explain why men have nipples and why testicles are on the outside.  Only a female god would find this funny.

    God is neither man nor woman nor human. He is a spirit and therefore genderless. The Bible was written by men in a male dominated society so they probably viewed God as a male.

      lone77starposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Or perhaps merely spoke of Him that way out of convenience, without really viewing Him that way. Merely a limitation of the language.

      When we refer to someone as "it" (genderless) in English, it typically carries a connotation of disrespect, so we persist with "He."

        No, the bible was written by a bunch of sexist old men, that is why it is referred to has he.

    If there is a god and god is a women that might make sense. That would make the bulk of the Old Testament what?  The history of a bad case of pms? That was one b*tchy book.

    In an accurate thinking,God has no gender but God created man like His image, and man was created follow by woman.This can be formulated that God has both traits male and female.

      and of course God is a woman.  That's why human men took her words and twisted them in whatever ways made them serve their own selfish and controlling purposes.

    MsDoraposted 6 years ago

    According to the Genesis story, woman was within man, before God separated the genders.  So both genders (the male  -- and the female who God took out of the man) got their attributes from God.  In that sense, it takes both the male and the female characteristics to complete God's image.  Yes, He can be both mother and father.

  12. lone77star profile image87
    lone77starposted 6 years ago

    Our languages are imperfect for describing the non-physical realm of creation and spirit.

    God has no physical gender. The Ten Commandments caution against any graven images of God simply because God doesn't have a physical form. A graven image would thus be a lie and a distraction from truth.

    No one knows the exact nature of God except perhaps those who have attained full spiritual awakening, so we muddle along with our imperfect symbols and wording.

    Wisdom remains hidden in the Bible for a purpose. The very act of searching for that wisdom elicits humility which is one of the requirements for spiritual awakening. Nice how that works.

    Much of the talk of gender in Genesis is symbolic for something else. For instance, the Kabbalah's "Tree of Life" has conceptual nodes which are considered either male or female -- personality traits or other qualities like "wisdom," "kindness," "severity," and "eternity."

    This conceptual "Tree of Life" can be found embedded in Genesis, with one chapter detailing the "female" side of the Tree and the subsequent chapter detailing the "male" side.

    We need to understand that the portrayal of women in Genesis as imperfect or flawed and the men as somewhat more righteous may merely be symbolic clues to that deeper wisdom. For instance, Genesis 6:1 describes men having daughters, who later led to the need for Noah's Flood. Naughty girls! But didn't the men also have sons? The omission is curious and a clue to that deeper wisdom.
