In 248 Origen wrote that Genesis references to Adam are "not so much of one particular individual as of the whole human race".

In 2011, right here on this comment board, I write that the Bible's references to God are not so much of one particular individual as of the whole human race".

Done.

With a few keystrokes, I have outdone the "brilliant" Origen, who didn't go far enough in his thinking. Mainstream theologians, take note: my formulation is far more accurate, far more credible.

God is a metaphor. Riddle solved. Too easy, really.

Moving on...
