well it is very quite possible that the bible had multiple writers and probably did since there are several gospels, if as the christians say the bible came through man by god it could of easily been corrupted, man is very good at doing that

Well some of the text of the bible is thousands of years older than other parts, and set in completely different time periods. Also, authorship style of the letters hints to multiple writers. I say it is impossible for one author. I think everyone would agree. I really do not know how you got this notion, have you ever read or even just skimmed through any of the bible?

Men wrote the bible. Men couldn't deal with anything being greater than them. Men ruled the world, thus God became a "Him".

the end.

God is not a man. False. The Christian God created man in his/her/its image, and is supposed to be so vast and all-encompasing as to be above even the human of conception of being.

it doesnt really matter but when/if/hopefully if you see God in Heaven, He will be a Man. we are created in his own image. Therefore he will look very similar to a man or a woman assuming we can see his face. God is referred to many times in the bible as HE or Him or His. take a guess which one it will be.

idk if anyone said this yet, but I'm sure someone has said the right answer. Just that back in the early years through for hundreds and hundreds of years, Women were seen as property, not as people. and to have a female God would be unthinkable. So naturally they imagined God as a male, there would be no reason that the historical civilizations would imagine a female god to be superior to other gods. I also recentally learned that in the early times(this is from Genesis) people found gods to be regional gods, and for example, each goup of people had their own god. So if something bad was happening to people at the time, others would say that "0h your god is a bad god" "your god doesn't care about you like our god does" etc
But what I'm trying to get at is the main reason the Jewish, Christian and Islamic God is because in the early civilization men where superior, and it would only come naturally that the one all powerful and all knowing God would be the superior species, male.
And the argument that God is a male, if I'm not mistaken, is the main reason they will not let women be priests in the Catholic faith, I'm sure this follows with other religions too.

And the whole idea of a male God makes him share qualities with a human. And by being a male human, that means he has a penis. The whole idea of God having a penis seems goofy. I mean would it be holy?
