Okay, well definently wasn't meaning jesus. And cause the billboard I saw was refering to the christian god, I guess thats who I meant, but any god will do

That doesnt answer the question, care to elaborate?


As for me ..

I think God appears to each of us in his, or her, own way. Whatever is most comforting to the individual.

Check some pictures of chimps and you will find that their skin color can shift all the way from fair to black, usually getting darker with age.

God tend to be depicted as similar to the local people. In Africa you often find Jesus painted as black. Here is a reconstruction of Jesus based on what people in Palestine looked like at the time:

I don't believe in God, but if there was a God, then he must look something like this. White with beard.

The images I have of him from childhood (when I actually believed in God) looked a lot like King Triton from the Little Mermaid. just with legs.

Umm God has no physical form to speak of. Assuming God exists we could also assume it could take any form it wanted. I prefer to think of God as amorphous and able to take any form it wishes.


In short God is genderless and without any human cultural traits.

I think one of the main issues is - Do we or do we not agree that god made us like him. Maybe we should rephrase the question.

If god were to take a human form, which would best describe him?

The Greek Gods had a lot more imagination that that. Human is so boring. Zeus in particular could take odd shapes to seduce/rape women. A bull or a swan for example.

Always wondered about that. Does it say something for the Greeks opinions on bestiality that their good seduce women by being swans? Odd thing for a god to appear as I always thought.

I suppose after a while the Greek women figured out what Zeus was up to so he had to switch to more and more exotic disguises.

I also think the Greeks din't have the same taboo against bestiality. At least there is supposedly a whole bunch of sculptures in the British museum not considered suitable to show to the public. There has to be a reason for them believing in satyrs, centaurs etc.

I'm agnostic, but if God exists, and he is actually the greatest thing there is, I'd expect him/her to be above needing matter to exist.

If he was a man, I'd say he's a black man, like in Bruce Allmighty. In fact, he looks exactly like that actor.

Well since it was never stated which god or religion this is about. We can’t really answer this completely. I can say that in any case that gods or god only exist in the minds of man or on the stone or parchment that he created. I would say it looks like what ever you wish, want, create, or fantasize.

I don't picture God as corporeal. His appearance will certainly be beyond human comprehension.

If God would ever take human form, I don't think God would take white man with beard as disguise. If God would choose something it would be 55+ years old tougher than toughest afroamerican grandmother with an attitude to grow 3+ upstading kids in gang neighbourhood and hardwood umbrella. Someone with tough love and great cooking skill.

And her most commong phrases would be for us: "Clean your mouth young man! Shoulders straight and sit up straight and do not hump like sack of an potatoes!"
