Thanks, I did search for that as I had the impression it was, but couldn't find it, but your post made my look harder and I did find a few references to that quote in the form "God made man in his own image and ever since man has been seeking to return the compliment". But I can't find where he is supposed to have said it, but it doesn't really matter.

Apparently it's in his notebooks Notebooks (c.1735-c.1750)
