Come, let us play God!

God is the creator of humankind, and therefore he, or one appointed by him, is the only one who can take a human life. For another man to do so is tantamount to insurrection. That is, to kill a human being is to exert oneself as Creator-God. Furthermore, because of the correspondence between God and humans, to harm them is, in some way, an attack on God.—The "Image of God" in the Garden of Eden, pages 121–22
