Satan. That's why until relatively recently left-handed kids were forced to become right-handed (which often led to speech disorders). In some countries, southpaws were still being forced to change even more recently.

When my (then) husband and I used to take a study-abroad group to Spain in the 1970s, the Spaniards were shocked to see our students writing postcards with their left hands. They wondered why they hadn't been corrected while they were still young enough to change.

Equally deft with left and right hand, left and right foot, and with the prehensile tail.

Like asking "Is god circumcised?" or "What color is god's hair?"

Beside, god, being an imaginary creature, if it had hands, they would be imaginary hands.

Or if we are talking about a Hindu god or goddess, the you have to ask which right hand or which left hand is dominant.

he wants to be.

Or whatever handed we choose to believe he is.

How do we test for the handedness of God?

Or do we just need faith that our belief in his handedness is right?

...whatever he wants, when he wants?

But personally, I believe God is hands off usually. Until you ask, then he'll think about it and decide if he should help out.
