  2. @Amanda – “The image that patriachal religion has perpetuated – the grandfather image.”

    Actually this is going to be limited specifically to Abrahamic religions (not necessarily all patriarchal religions) from the assertion in Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”

  3. Yeah, but how did man know that god looked like them? If he was all powerful, he wouldn’t have created children that were so fragile and flawed.

    Also, not all men (or women) are wise looking white dudes with long flowing hair and beards.
