I understand the essence of what you're trying to say but when you fail to understand the nature of a deity that is ignorance.


Do you follow the Christian god? If not, I'm puzzled as to why you're schooling anyone on His nature.

Quote
How many times do people have to explain symbolic appearance?


I think you meant to ask, "How many times am I going to give out lectures that no one actually asked for any have no basis in real history or religion?"

Quote
Originally in Christian art, God was never shown except as a hand reaching down from heaven to bestow something.


You're gonna have to cite some sources and give me something better than "Christian art."
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

-Canticle of Trials 1:10

But that's what mansplainers do.  Without invitation or provocation, they splain and splain some more.

You're welcome.

For some reason this brings to mind the iconic giant foot from Monty Python.

I'm sorry, but I honestly don't get what you're trying to say, or what it has to do with my original post. Are you being pro-Luddite, or anti-Luddite?
