In verse 26, God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over [the other creatures]". Is it possible that we've said too much about our being made in the image of God? Could this be like me saying, "I'll teach him everything I know" but then finishing the statement with "about cooking." If everyone quoted only my first little bit, it would sound as if someone was the recipient of every bit of knowledge I possess. Add that last bit and the scope is significantly narrowed.
