    Genesis 1:26

    Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

    Is the monotheistic Christian God admitting that there is at least one other god?

    Or are humans genetically engineered by aliens who are our God?

    WHAT IS THE ANSWER?!?!?

    Maybe God was helped by the other gods whom The Chosen are not to have before Him.

    26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

    27 So God created man in his own image,
    in the image of God he created him;
    male and female he created them.


    28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."


    Don't forget us FEMALES!
