Wow...God is a woman...and she's black! I sense Cornfed is gonna have a heart attack in a minute
He almost has it right , The Father the Son and the " Holy Spirit is Mother ". The story in the bible is you cannot be older than your mother. The guy's who wrote it were very smart, I don't know what happened to this man but all I can say is the creator in the BOOK is MOTHER!
If things continue here on earth unabated all our offspring goes to hell and pays for our sins on this rock. You need to consider that Marcos when you have more children.

I suggest you take it up with Chick God.
I am not saying weather it is or isn't, Have you ever looked at the chromosome markers for men and women ? it's very interesting to say the least. Males are modified females, why is this ? because more than likely she is the ground for life here and the earliest life forms were female in reproduction.
One statistic puts a stake through the heart of the bibles core thesis on the what I consider the real theology of it and that is women kill their own children statistically more so than do men. The writer's of the book did not know this however or maybe back then the women were more civilized towards their offspring.

I tried to subtly mock it, but it bears restating: it's a bullshit theory alright! Every gnostic book, every religion and spiritual discipline known to mankind asserts that, without the shade of a doubt, the road of spiritual evolution of sentient beings, that which starts from inanimate objects like minerals and climbs all the way up to God, the real God of Infinite Light, Love and Knowledge, does away with an incarnate life - that is life in the physical vessel we call body - as soon as it possibly can.
If we did't dismiss it as cheesy New Age, our resident Guru Starchild told it in one of his first few posts, and it bears repeating. We are males and females, we are indeed men in a physical body, bounded by whatever our mind and five senses can capture and process, because we sit pretty low in the spiritual evolution ladder. The moment we die, which is the moment we step on to the rung immediately above this mortal coil, we already lose our sexual identity. We become what we have always been, a sexless, genderless soul made of light, love, a modest lump of experience ready to face the next stage of its evolution. Perhaps another incarnate life, perhaps on Earth again, or perhaps one of the other billion planets which were designed to host physical life.
Before then, the male and female essences blend back into One, we reach the synthesis of the (apparent) opposites. And this, not because those opposites cease to exist, but because we reach a level of understanding that shows us that those opposites have never actually existed. They are only a convention created by Nature to allow our species to reproduce. Remember the casting of Adam & Eve from the garden of Eden...that eternal myth that simply signifies that our direct creators, probably some marginally higher than us incarnate lowlife race from a nearby planet (Nibiru? Zeta Reticuli?) who engineered us for whatever purpose, changed our DNA to allow for sexual reproduction. Which, in many ways, left our race on our own devices...simultaneously blessed and curses by the pleasure of sex and the pain of childbirth, the loss of our primal innocence for the gain of our current human identity.
And yet, for all our limits and imperfections, we are tiny fragment of that giant mirror that is the Universe and the supreme God who governs it all...a fragment of infinitesimal proportions, yet one still capable to reflect the wholeness of the true God. The most fitting metaphor is actually that of a hologram, which can be cut into ever smaller pieces and where every piece, no matter how small, will still contain the same shape of the original image, albeit increasingly blurred. The same happens to us universal consciences: the smaller pieces we are in the great scheme of evolution, the farther we are from God and the more confused, blurred, controversial even, that image becomes to us and our limited understanding. It is Faith who should then reassure us that, indeed, we are that hologram dust. We are generated from God, made of the same Light and we do indeed reflect the same wholeness of the supreme God.
This is what the most majestic philosophical and esoteric corpus of all times, the Indian Vedas, have been telling us for more than a thousand years. This is what, from one angle or another, all non-materialistic religions, basically all religions worth their salt, have been telling us. The Islamic religion even went as far as banning any representation of Allah, because their clerics could grasp the notion that the Supreme God cannot be contained and constrained in any one representation, let alone an anthropomorphic one, better than us.
So, to say that God is a woman, black, or Asian is one of the biggest acts of idiocy human logic could possibly bear. No surprise all religions and philosophies are much more concerned with how men can get closer to God, than what choice of human form God would choose to look like.
