Young Man on the Ground

I read something today where someone expressed that they "do not believe that God is an old man in the sky." By the context the speaker was implying that she thought hers was an unusual perspective, one that her audience may not have encountered.

I for one have never met anyone who believed that God is an old man in sky.  I'm not sure where this came from.  When I hear people say what this woman said, I have to wonder, "who exactly does believe God is like that?"

Interestingly, I realized while reflecting, that while I do not believe that God is an old man in the sky either, I do believe that God is a young man on the ground. :)

Actually, now that I think about it, I guess Renaissance artwork has a lot of old man in the sky imagery. I don't know how many people really think like that though.
