Compliment

On the sixth day God created man. On the seventh day, man returned the favor.

— Anonymous

If God has created us in His image, we have more than returned the compliment.

— Voltaire

God made man merely to hear some praise of what he’d done on those Five Days.

— Christopher Morley

God is indeed dead. He died of self-horror when He saw the creature He had made in His own image.

— Irving Layton

When you tell me that your Deity made you in his own image, I reply that he must have been very ugly.

— Victor Hugo

Frankenstein took some flesh and bones and blood and made a man out of them; the man ran away and fell to raping and robbing and murdering everywhere, and Frankenstein was horrified and in despair, and said, I made him, without asking his consent, and it makes me responsible for every crime he commits. I am the criminal, he is innocent. … [That’s exactly] the case of God and man… God made man, without man’s consent, and made his nature, too; made it vicious instead of angelic, and then said, Be angelic, or I will punish you and destroy you. But no matter, God is responsible for everything man does, all the same; He can’t get around that fact. There is only one Criminal, and it is not man.

— Mark Twain
