Day 73: March 14 – Creating God in Our Own Image

~ The Temple of Apollo, Delphi

~

Garden Obelisk

There is one God, greatest among Gods and men,

similar to mortals neither in shape nor in thought.

But mortals think that Gods are born,

and have clothes and speech and shape like their own.

But if cows and horses or lions had hands

and drew with their hands and made the things men make,

then horses would draw the forms of gods like horses, 

cows like cows,

and each would make their bodies

similar in shape to their own.

~ Xenophanes
