    I heard someone asking why people assign human qualities to God, and he probably believe that it's presumptuous to assume God has brain, desire, will, emotion, ego and can think.

    Here's my questions that inspire from that person's speech:
    (1) Does God has brain, desire, will, emotion, ego and can think?
    (2) What does God's brain looks like? How do you know what God's brain would looks like?
    (3) Do you believe God has brain? What is your evidence that God has brain?
    (4) Do you believe God has no brain? What is your evidence that God has no brain?
    (5) Is it presumptuous to assume God has brain, desire, will, emotion, ego and can think? Why is it presumptuous or not presumptuous?
    (6) Is it presumptuous to assume God has no brain, no desire, no will, no emotion, no ego and can't think? Why is it presumptuous or not presumptuous?

    There're some people who believe God is universe and/or everything, which would imply humans are inside God. And if they believe God has no brain....

    I'm not saying God has brain in real world, but just as a hypothetical situation to ponder... If God actually has brain, then when they say God has no brain, aren't it's like an atom inside your body and the atom says that you have no brain?

    Obviously God is spirit so he doesn't have a physical brain... Although Jesus did and does because he took on human flesh.
    Of course that does not mean that God does not have intelligence. As the ultimate and perfect being he has all knowledge, that is, he knows everything that can be known.

    I think the question would be is God sentient. The brain is a pretty specific biological organ. I feel most spiritual type would feel such a biological organ as unnecessary to sentience.

    Is the universe sentient? I don't know but it's hard to imagine how a billion cells can come together to create sentience. So I suppose it is possible but it would be beyond anything we could comprehend since we can barely comprehend our own existence.

    @Pudding - I'm an unbeliever, so my answers to your questions would be the same as if you asked them about what you consider to be a fictional character, like Santa Claus. Does he have a brain? Not really a meaningful question.

    That's an interesting phrase. I'm not sure if it means the same thing as "He knows everything," or if it is meant to imply that there are things unknowable to what is said to be an omniscient deity. That last one is hard to parse - what could it mean to be unknowable to one who knows everything that can be known (or who knows everything)? What kind of thing would that be? Something that is true that God is incapable of knowing? That's not logically impossible, but I think we wouldn't call such a deity omniscient.

    What do you think, and what did you mean?

    Just covering the bases. Some Christians believe that the future is unknown by everyone including God because it's unknowable until it happens. I don't really agree but I don't know for sure if the future is fixed or not.
