I remember hearing somewhere that the image that most Christians tend to associate God with was originally Zeus. I found a quote today on the subway, oddly enough, from the Koran that–I think–backs up that analysis even more:

“He looses the thunderbolts, and smites with them/ whomsoever He will; yet they/ dispute about God, who is mighty in power.” –Thunder (XIII:13).

I guess even Muslims could see God as a white dude with a huge beard and a quiver full of murder sticks. The white dude part is probably a little bit of a stretch, but at least it’s an interesting idea.
