The Average Person Thinks God Looks Like a Young Brad Pitt?

I guess if God was one of us, he really would be just a stranger on the bus.



A new study at the University of North Carolina asked over 500 Christians what they think God looks like.  And the average answer is . . . a pretty basic white dude.



The best comparison we saw is to a young Brad Pitt, but some people on Twitter also think the image looks like Jimmy Fallon . . . Elon Musk . . . or Val Kilmer.



But the study found that the person that God looks like the most is . . . you.  At least in your eyes.



The researchers say, quote, “Older participants saw an older God, more attractive participants saw a more attractive God, and African Americans saw a marginally more African American God.”



The only thing everyone had in common?  Everyone pictured God as being male.
