Yeah, it isn't something we can know or necessarily need to know, so it comes back to personal beliefs.

That struck me as odd because I always assumed God to be "gender-less" in a way. This of course is my own personal assumption not backed up by anything. I just always assumed that he is mostly referred to as a "he" the same way people in a whole are referred to as "man" or "mankind". I really wanted an explanation just to have something new to think about.

It's an interesting thought. If you are coming from the Christian point of view, Jesus Christ is obviously a he as he was a man. God the father, though... Well, I've always thought about him as a he, but... I don't know.

Interesting theory! I think that it's easy to forget that the story incorporates many religions.

Aldonza wrote When Arthur and Frieda mentioned God they always said "she". Why "she"? What do you think?
I wonder maybe Council and Hunter's Order believe in the Aramaic Holy Spirit? :eusa-think:

Since God is a spirit there may be no gender attached to God. But since in the bible, God prefers He rather than She. May be some religions would rather refer to God as She?

I know there are definitely people who believe God to be female. There are also groups that believe him to be genderless. It's just interesting how everyone has a different belief on what God looks like. Honestly it's kind of pointless to think about. He is beyond human comprehension.

I honestly was wondering this too. I was actually kind of hoping they were going to expand on that, but perhaps that will be in the next book. I think it's interesting though, and could add something to the story. I'd definitely be interested in hearing more about that.
