I had planned a short discussion on a theory of mine that I've been working on about guardian angels and trans-dimensional existence, but I think it needs to wait a little longer to formulate in the furnace of my brain. Instead I want to throw out a little idea I've recently thought of.
Genesis 1:26 (King James Version) "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness."
Let's ignore for the moment one of the times God says "our" like there are others like God that God is talking to and instead look at what it might actually mean to be made in God's image and with God's likeness. I would think that means God is a bipedal hominid if we are made in God's image, if that is in fact referencing our physical shape, which I can only conclude it does.
But that still leaves God's likeness and what exactly that means. I know this has probably been debated for centuries and I'm too lazy to bother looking up what greater minds than mine have come up with over that span of time. Personally I think God's likeness is our curiosity and drive to explore and to understand the world around us. I think of God as a scientist conducting an experiment and as subjects of this experiment we were given some of the same curiosity that caused this scientist God to conduct the experiment. The nature of the experiment would be impossible to say but given the reaction to the eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil I would personally venture forth the idea that the experiment is about god creation, and the nature of being God.
Now as people who know me know I am not a religious person, and I put no faith in the story of creation personally. But I do like asking "what if...?" Like what if God doesn't know how He came into being anymore than humans know how we did, and He is in search of that answer as so many of us humans are about ourselves? What if the reason we are here is just so that God can figure out why He is where He is?
I had more I had planned to say in this post but I think I will hold off for now.
