Why imagine God as father..

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Is this true information about the Muslims ? or is it a conspiracy ?

Muslim Jesus, Jewish Jesus or Christian Jesus- nobody had a father. He was made by 'special arragement'- according to Islamic scripture. His life was put into Mariam's (Mary) womb directly. Yes, this was God's will- like all lives are. But that does not mean that his DADDY was God.

I think I can understand why some small children grow up thinking God as their father. There are many societies in which a big portion of the population (in some countries more than one third children) are born outside marriage. Many of them even do not know who their fathers are. So the story of Jesus attracts them and they also like to think that their DADDY is God! Otherwise, I have no clue why normal people will imagine God as their dad!
