Reconsidering my last answer, i think God is the term we use for the essence of consciousness. I still have a hard time thinking of that as being either black or white

Your brain is unique in the history of the universe. Use it wisely.

us humans were formed in god's image, but that doesnt mean god looks human. actually most religious text say quite the contrary, so I think this question is a bit pointless, at least if you really believe in god...
so other sums it up best...

God isn't ANY color IMHO, he is clear (see through).

Zeus is very much like my imagionation of "God". White, Bearded, aura of power, strength and wisdom.

While I think God could appear any way he wants to, it would make sense that if he appeared before any human he would probably assume the form of something they could wrap their minds around. So I think he would at least appear to us as a human-like being. Probably a stereotypical "god type image" old man beard ect, kinda looking like Zeus. But really I dont think he was finite shape, after all God is all powerful, he can appear however he wants to....

I don't believe in a god, but after thinking about this for awhile this is what I came up with.

Humans should not have the visual capacity to identify the colour of a being whose image is perfect, nor the mental capacity to comprehend what they see. If you could touch god, you should not be able to describe how it feels. The idea of a god is that of a being so far beyond us that it is incomprehensible.

God is actually a chipmunk with white beard... Well not really, chipmunk is just puppet God is using when He is doing his ventriliquest act. Other form of puppet's He has useing is the Famous Burning Bush ( at this point I got image George W. Bush Jr on Fire I probably should go sleep) He used when talking to Moses.

Simply in His all glory might His true presence would betoo much for humans. We would probably turn a piece salt statue or pile of ash ^^

God has no physical manifestation IMO. That was Jesus.

God to me doesn't have a particular physique.

Its more like a presence that can BE there in any form he/she so chooses.

Its like asking if you think god is a boy or girl. Everyone has a different opinion because the closest thing to God that anyone ever saw was Jesus.

I agree with your first statement there, if the stories are top be assumed true, that is what it probably is (= personally I think this kind of discussion is one of the things causing religious violence, and are generally to be avoided.

same as 'is god a woman or a man', very popular among feminists...

In my mind I always just saw a blurry white aura. Kinda like an intense start when it glows white, not like a white person. I don't believe god would look like a person. Maybe we are in God's image in a different way

Regardless of if we are right or wrong, history will form its own opinions.
