"God-Given" Attributes

I was driving home from work this evening, listening to the radio, and there was a clip of a speech President Bush made at today's groundbreaking ceremony for the new Martin Luther King Jr memorial in Washington.

Bush said something about children's "god-given potential."

The phrase struck me for some reason. Of course I've heard it before, but I guess I've never *really* thought about it. It made me wonder what people here think about the gods' role in the creation of human life.

Do you believe your god/dess(s) created you?

Do you believe he/she/they deliberately caused you to have certain attributes?

Or do you believe you came to be and *then* developed a relationship with your deity, who had nothing to do with your creation?

Or something else?
