    Is it even feasible for a god to have human personality attributes?

    I suspect that some would argue that it isn't.

    I agree and curse all Inquisitions and Jihads as well as the religions that spawned them.

    Ignoring supernatural garbage for a moment.

    Are not all of God's attributes and concepts of behavior found in humans?

    Enlightened is an antonym for rude.

    Are you saying that God is not enlightened either because it is a concepts of behavior found in humans?

    I believe I live in a generation of people who are already bad listeners. They hear, but don't listen. Perhaps some are waiting for an email or a whisper when it's just the effect we should be recognizing.

    Do you pray to and give gravity a part of your wealth?

    See why your analogy is a false one?

    I agree.

    Man has created all of the Gods.

    This, without any evidence or proof to the contrary is what we should all be believing.

    If he, or his human creator want God to be relevant and our guide then he must. How else could we follow, or as scriptures say, be as perfect as God.
    I suspect that some would argue that it isn't.
    They would be wrong unless they can show some non-human attribute in a God. Recognizing that the scribes made him Omni everything in their zeal to give God the biggest balls ever.

    I see all the Gods as having human attributes because we create God as the ideal of humans.

    Without going into supernatural garbage, I cannot think of one attribute for man that is not applied to our plethora of Gods.

    Can you?

    In which case there remains no rudeness, for one who does not exist cannot be rude while not existing.

    This question does not make sense. G-d being One, unique and whole, does not have "attributes" or "concepts of behavior." Giving human attributes to G-d is strictly metaphorical, as an attempt to understand something that is fundamentally beyond our comprehension.
