Some of you might remember the first time I messed with Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam was with this other cartoon I did almost a year ago. I also remember that Michael Spencer, the Internet Monk, who passed away earlier this year, loved that cartoon and posted it on his blog. Excuse me, but my Photoshop talent is limited, as you can see.
What could this cartoon mean?
Perhaps the most obvious is that Adam, which is Hebrew for “man”, rejects God.
Or perhaps he rejects Michelangelo’s image of God.
Or perhaps he is rejecting that depiction of God as separate and stern.
Or perhaps he is rejecting the whole anthropomorphic idea of God altogether.
