    one must logically deduce that it would have to be sexless being.
    If it existed, then perhaps, but the conceptualised god presented by the scriptures, which all make repeated reference to gender, is clearly male.

    Why would people want their God to have a vestigial dick?

    I know. My point required the assumption, though.

    There are plenty of reasons to refer to God as male in the scriptures without actually necessitating the existence of a vestigial penis. The primary one being that the culture to which the scriptures were aimed was a patriarchal culture. Logically speaking, it makes more sense for a sexless god to refer to itself as male given the audience it was targeting that it does for a being in a single-organism species to be male.

    All of this, of course, assumes God exists.

    Good question that has no answer.
    Actually, it does have an answer. Assuming that God does exist, the only logical explanation for God being referred to in the scriptures as male is that the scriptures are not intended by god to be taken literally, and that god was employing a persuasive rhetorical approach in his self-identification as "male".

    But those who are adamant about God having a vestigial penis are also the people who make the assumption that the bible is to be taken literally and is incapable of any inaccuracies, even if they were intentional inaccuracies made by God for entirely persuasive rhetorical reasons.

    The entire debate is ultimately a logical paradox caused by people's illogical assertion that the bible was designed by god to be a literal depiction of reality (rather than a book of stories and parables meant to teach lessons about life and morality).

    By combining logical deductions, we can see that, at best, the Bible was intended by God to be a collection of lessons, not a historical account of reality. Those who chose to believe the latter is the case must therefore actively reject logic, since it is impossible to reach that belief in via valid and sound logic.

    If you're a Christian, of course Jesus was a man.

    God Himself has no gender.

    I dunno, but I can't imagine any man who wouldn't want a god-like dick.

    I'm not sure what kind of a penis a non-corporeal deity would have, but probably not a vestigial one, as this would imply that he once had a use for it but that it had become obsolete and subsequently degenerated.

    If you think about it, Adam wouldn't have had a penis either. He'd have had no use for it, unless he was doing the sheep, until Eve came along. Penises certainly look like a last-minute addition.

    I couldn't think of a word for totally useless and nonsensical body part that makes no damned sense whatsoever, so I went with the next best thing.
