We have to assume that god looks somewhat human, since he made man in his image.
I'll take the question at face value, but you have to help me with a pointer or clarification. I have never really known what means this "comfortable."

Yes, that has been said. And the only secular fact I know of is a reference from Pliney, perhaps 10 years after his execution that was not recorded, and a full 30 years at least before anything else was written as gospel. This is really a pre-historic period as far as a complete record is concerned. But, Pileny wrote of him a man of the Jews who was said to perform paradoxical feats.
Just something he had heard, no mention of a name.
If he did or didn't exist, so what? The religion is all about this wonderous holy magic. How does Self exist? That's the message of all of those who have spoken up and had their words twisted for power.
