God in Human Form - Avatara

Most religions cannot accept the concept of God with a form. Further, some religions do not allow the acceptance of God in a human form. Yet every religion agrees to the fact that the Lord is all-knowing and all-powerful. If this is true then He, who is beyond all forms, can take up any form by His Will.

(a) Whatever the human being says, rational (reasonable) or irrational (reasonless), should not be accepted?

(b) Or whatever is reasonably said by the human being should not be accepted? (Implying that only that which is irrational and said by a human being should be accepted).

If you take the first case, since you are a human being, whatever you say should not be accepted, whether what you say is reasonable or reasonless. If it is the second case, you would be accepted only if whatever, you said were reasonless. In that case you should be a mad person because only mad people speak reasonless statements...
