Questions to ask creationusts and fundies
« on: June 03, 2017, 02:25:08 PM »
This is based on something in another forum.

We are told that god made man in his own image, so, which of all the various colours and races of mankind was god? If, say, those in the Bible were the true imsge then he was what we would now call a member of the Semitic group (though "semitic" originaly applied to a language group rather than a racial one - including all the biblical languages plus Hebrew and Arabic etc).

Racially those in the "Semitic" group are Causasian, along with Europeans, Indians and others. So god was really a Caucasian then? So where did the Negroids and Mongoloids come from? Are they "not in god's image"?  6000 years is a short time for them to have split off and gone their own, very long, way and changed so much. They can't have evolved can they?

Hey, just thought, bet there are lots of white creationist fundies who will not entertain the idea that Causaians are from African stock, dropping a few off in the bible lands on their way north and east.

There is just ONE race of people on this planet, the human one. Why is this so difficult to understand stand?

I am amused by all those pictures of Jesus as a white guy.  Since it is against the rules to make pictures of Muhammed or Allah, that lets the Muslims have him in any color or shape that they wish.

This.

The line of thinking in the OP is used to justify some hardcore racism.

How is skin color so incredibly relevant to God's image. Men often look different than women. Short stocky people look different than tall lanky people. And so forth. And no one is sitting around wondering if tall people are Gods true race.

I remember being told humans were created in god's image so that we could understand him and obey his word -- but I was also told that god's ways were mysterious and his mind was not like our mind so we just had to obey without understanding.  But we were still made in his image to be like him.   :fingertap:

If humans are made in god's image, why are they real?
