God and man each create something from nothing. God has created the world; man is creating his thoughts and beliefs about the world.
According to this author God and Man are similar in ways more than just the looks. Do you agree?
Well, the Sun created the Earth, and the Earth created a biosphere, which created countless species, including a particular posse of simians. The nature of humans reflects the nature of biology generally, which in turn reflects the dynamics of Earth's geology, which in turn reflects the dynamics of the Sun.
Choose your god - the Sun, the Earth or its biosphere. Their creativity dwarfs that of humans in both scope and sophistication, given that humans are but a part of the biosphere, which is but a part of the Earth, etc.
Sure, humans personify these things (and trump them by going universal) but this humanising of overwhelmingly powerful cosmic and natural phenomena is a way of feeling as though humans have some control. A personified volcano can be petitioned, be influenced with sacrifices and other rituals. A volcano without human qualities simply blasts when the magma of gas below achieves a certain pressure.
