Same thing I do when people say they have their morals given to them by some book supposedly written by a guy with giant hands.

Which would be a strawman. God has no hands. He's immaterial.

He's usually depicted with hands, though. If we were made in his image, then why do we have hands?

That we are made in his image means in his likeness,as in characteristics, not in appearance.

In characteristics? Humans are an awful species as we murder, take pride, **pe, and enjoy it. Is God like that as well?

Having the “image” or “likeness” of God means, in the simplest terms, that we were made to resemble God. Adam did not resemble God in the sense of God’s having flesh and blood. Scripture says that “God is spirit” (John 4:24) and therefore exists without a body. However, Adam’s body did mirror the life of God insofar as it was created in perfect health and was not subject to death.

The image of God (Latin: imago dei) refers to the immaterial part of humanity. It sets human beings apart from the animal world, fits them for the dominion God intended them to have over the earth (Genesis 1:28), and enables them to commune with their Maker. It is a likeness mentally, morally, and socially.

Mentally, humanity was created as a rational, volitional agent. In other words, human beings can reason and choose. This is a reflection of God’s intellect and freedom. Anytime someone invents a machine, writes a book, paints a landscape, enjoys a symphony, calculates a sum, or names a pet, he or she is proclaiming the fact that we are made in God’s image.

Morally, humanity was created in righteousness and perfect innocence, a reflection of God’s holiness. God saw all He had made (humanity included) and called it “very good” (Genesis 1:31). Our conscience or “moral compass” is a vestige of that original state. Whenever someone writes a law, recoils from evil, praises good behavior, or feels guilty, he or she is confirming the fact that we are made in God’s own image.

Socially, humanity was created for fellowship. This reflects God's triune nature and His love. In Eden, humanity’s primary relationship was with God (Genesis 3:8 implies fellowship with God), and God made the first woman because “it is not good for the man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18). Every time someone marries, makes a friend, hugs a child, or attends church, he or she is demonstrating the fact that we are made in the likeness of God.

Part of being made in God’s image is that Adam had the capacity to make free choices. Although they were given a righteous nature, Adam and Eve made an evil choice to rebel against their Creator. In so doing, they marred the image of God within themselves, and passed that damaged likeness on to all of their descendants (Romans 5:12). Today, we still bear the image of God (James 3:9), but we also

Perhaps you should look up "Image" and "Likeness"?
Also, God, as in the Bible, was very much physical.
Concept of "Spirit" is not from that text, but a Helenistic concept introducd later.

No, perhaps you should, becuuse if you did you'd know that " likeness " does not mean " exactly like " These separate terms. Also, I've read the bible cover to cover many times and no where does God have " big hands " He did have hands in the form of Jesus Christ, but they were just normal human hands. No bigger than anyone elses hands.

Hands, wha?

In OUR image. Google? Likeness to, while you're at it.

The creation myth in the Bible came from the Sumerians who got it from the Egyptians who got it from the worshippers of the Great God of Light, Satan.
It is a reference to mythical GodS who created this pebble we live on.

Jack - You seem to be just as incoherent here as you were in your previous post.

" OUR image " in the bible is talking about the trinity, which is proving exactly what I've been saying right alone.You're making my argument for me.

When Genesis said " Let us make man in our image " or " Likeness " The " OUR
"was God the father, the Son and, the Holy spirit. Jesus wasn't even born in the flesh yet, so this is talking about likeness as in the form of, which is not necessarily material.

In regards to the bible being a " myth" You can' t qualify the term " myth " in your nihilistic world view. and your claims about the Sumerians, Egyptians, and Satan are just that, claims.

You're merely parroting what was parroted to you, nothing more.This type of noncritical analysis is how people end up in cults. Which is what militant secularism has become, a cult.

You need to learn to read.

The Trinity is a Catholic introduction borowed from the Hindu Triad and whatever else.

There is no mention of this trinity in the Torah. In fact, please cite where it is mentioned in the New Testament if you will, just for fun.

Jack - This is what's known in debate and logic as a Red Herring. Which is a divergence from the topic into an irrelevant issue when you don't like the direction of the discussion.

Let me help you out. The original discussion was about evolution and the fact that those who hold to that claim have produced zero observational evidence.

However, since you brought up the topic. Here. This Christian guy destroys these claims you've made by a popular, ignorant, YouTube atheist who claims the same thing you are.

You need to learn to stop being so gullible and accepting everything that comes down the pipe as " truth " and think. Stop parroting idiots with memes and educate yourself. Reading memes from other idiots online is not an education.

He's POINTING at the evidence, ya raging f**ktard (ad hominem fallacy fer ya there, sugarplum).

And unlike Y'eshau bar Yosephus of whom there is not a smidgen of evidence he ever existed, those others, as you 'can't' see, are literally caved in stone, and are part of the documented historical lore of these people.

Read a book, and stop pretending to be a mental throwback.

So basically what we have here is more of the same ole tired atheist responses when backed into a corner. Insults in lieu of a counter argument, expletives, and ad hominems.

Also, An appeal to authority fallacy is only applicable to an individual outside of their area or expertise. When applying logical fallacies it's import to remember there proper application. The devil is in the details.

The rest of your immaturity speaks for itself.
0 ups
No, appeal to authority is appeal to authority, hence why it's called, appeal to authority.
You cited a generalized bunch of tomes (none of which were written by you) as credentials to certify how much you know about that which you are completely ignorant about, including the Bible itself.

Further, you continue to try to evade the issue by citing logical fallacies to deflect my queries but not citing facts. All form, no content.

- And ya still ain't answered why yer big fishy has mammalian finger bones, digestive track, and mammary glands.

Keep on, idiot, I'm done with your asinine buffoonery.

FREE BONUS: Check out my comments. I was most recently engaged in a debate with MyrinaWaffle (which lead me to your memes) and OctaviaMelody about, yup, religion. Strangely, they think I'm an ignorant backwards Christian fundamentalist.

You, like them, are a repititious uniformed bigot who uses the scaffoldng of an argument minus any substance.

Later, toots.

If I have " displayed " ignorance you would be able to demonstrate that with a counter argument, but since you can not, all you have offered are logical fallacies and insults. This comment is no exception to that.

I keep repeating the same logical fallacies because you consistently commit them. Which means you display a consistent pattern of illogical thought. I have made that glaringly obvious while you argue in the face of it with egg on your face.

If I myself have committed logical fallacies you would be able to argue that and demonstrate that, not just claim that. You don't have a leg to stand on in this debate and know it, which is precisely the reason for all the insults.

1. Asking me to explain why cetacea have mammalian only features is what's known in logic as an argument from ignorance fallacy. Which is asking me to prove what you have claimed. You are making the claim, ergo, it is upon you to provide observational evidence to support such a claim.

2. Your comments on Genesis & the Counsel of Nicea are irrelevant to the topic of discussion and ergo, one of many Red Herrings, unsubstantiated claims, and terms your nihilistic world view can not qualify.

Calling me stupid is a text book example of psychological projection. You have displayed so much consistent ignorance on history, philosophy, logic, and theology, I think my IQ went down 20 points just be ingesting it.

Not a one of your posts has not included at least one demonstration that you can't think for yourself logically, or are not parroting crap you are simply passing on from another bogus source.

Once again. How much egg do you want to wear on you face and ignorance do you want to display? The choice is yours.
0 ups
If I could display as much ignorance as you, THAT would be a miracle.

You keep repeating the same logical fallacies (not just by citing them, but by actually commiting them) as a substitute for the lack of substance you consistently display.

AGAIN:

1. Explain why cetacea have mammalian only features.

2. Quote the non-existent Genesis specific reference to this fictional Trinity myth created by the Council of Nicea.

You can't be this stupid.

He's pointing at a cartoon - An artist's rendition of his claims, not evidence or arguments for those claims. This is the very point of the meme. Referencing me with expletive filled ad hominems will not change that reality.

That there isn't a " smidgen of evidence he ever existed " would be another Red Herring fallacy on top of a logically fallacious statement which would require you hold infinite knowledge to state positively as you did. In other words. You'd literally have to be God to say there's not a " smidgen of evidence he every existed "

Also, I've not only read " a book " but many books on philosophy, history, logic, and theology, and your posts wouldn't even qualify on an entry level, if that's too much truth for you to handle, snowflake, you need to toughen up and get a grip on reality and come out of your artificial world of make believe.

By the way. I flagged your post with the F-bomb.

Ya brought him up, ya daft bunghole.

Nice appeal to authority, btw, not to mention worthless even if accepted, because you haven't even read the Bible itself, so no.
