Here’s a fitting image of Biblegod: a grim-sized phantom!

 

poem by John Keats, 1818

 

To Percy Shelly, on the Degrading Notions of Deity.

 

What wonder, Percy, that with jealous rage,

Men should defame the kindly and the wise,

When in the midst of the all-beauteous skies,

And all this lovely world, that should engage

Their mutual search for the old golden age,

They seat a phantom, swelled into grim size,

Out of their passions and bigotries.
