The resemblance is the quality of what is similar (which looks like someone or something). Two beings living or similar objects have certain characteristics in common. For example: "the architect created this Pavilion, which is a likeness of the Palais du Louvre", "I do not know why they accused him of plagiarism: two works have no resemblance", "the similarities between these books are obvious and nobody can say otherwise.
The similar concept can also be used with a sense of weighting or a demonstrative character: "I feel powerless against a similar problem", "I had never heard a similar story.
Applied to a geometric figure, the similarity shows that the figure is different from any other just with regard to the size/dimension, given that its parts respectively preserve the same proportion. In this sense, similar triangles are those who maintain a relationship of similarity and therefore have a similar form. In the case of the triangles, unlike the other figures, the form depends only on their corners.
Relating to Christian theology, the Latin term imago dei is used to refer to the creation of man to "image and likeness" of God. Theologians are that this biblical phrase has to do with the domain of the man on the other creatures that God gave him and reproductive capacity.
The likeness of the Bible, on the other hand, is associated with a perfection of the image, where image is the reflection of the soul. For Saint Thomas Aquinas, all human beings were created in the likeness of God, the image (the soul) being what differs man from all other creatures.
