I'm sure most of you will think this is wacky. That's what I thought as well. But after i stopped laughing, I thought hey, that's kinda cool....

About 3 quarters down the page, it suggests that YHWH, spelt in Hebrew, top to bottom, looks like a man -

While this is interesting, I never thought that "in His image" meant physically, and still don't. That "shape" could apply to nearly any animal. If you stand a horse up on it's hind legs, that might actually look more like the horse. Do ya see it in the head?

Also, the Hebrew that is used now is not the same that was used way back. If you take a look at the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet, setting the name up this way does not work at all. (Sorry, I don't have any example, but if you look at the top of the YY page, the first four characters after the YY title are H-W-H-Y (remember, Hebrew reads right to left).

It has been a tradition in Cabalah that if you add a Shin above the Yod, it makes a crown for the " man." Sorry I don't have a Hebrew font.
