I would be a pervert god .
All day long watching hot chick's.
And in between wanks, I would play killsies.
That's killing people I don't approve of, in weird and wonderful ways.

I would feel my omnipotence were bounded by my omniscience, such that it would be impossible to do anything. For example, were I to consider saving a child's life, knowing she will grow up and break some guys heart - such that he doesn't meet a woman with whom he would have had a happy life, I should have to judge the relative happiness and sorrows of her parents, versus him and the woman he would have loved, and consider further what she will do if not marry the man she would have married, and so on ad infinitum. Ultimately, by making a few small changes, I would have to take responsibility for the whole of human existence - and so I could not intervene even if I had the power to do so.

If I were god I would be so ashamed by the mess I had made of everything, I would be tempted to commit suicide!

The current state of the world would never be the current state of the world if I was God.

What would you be like as God?

One who makes sure each person uses the brains I gave them.

What would you fix?

Religions.

What would you destroy?

Ignorance.
Marrying a 6 year old and waiting until she reaches puberty and maturity before having consensual sex is better than walking up to
a stranger in a bar and proceeding to have relations with no valid proof of the intent of the person. Muhammad wins. ~ Fatihah
If they don't want to be killed then they have to subdue to the Islamic laws. - Uncung
Without God, you are lower than sh!t. ~ SpiritandTruth

Yes. I would be very content with what I created as a temporary age to teach my people how I created them and give them some facts about how they will live in the future after their flesh has perished.

What would you be like as God? : :

I would enjoy what I created to last forever.

What would you fix? : :

There's nothing to fix. It was created to last forever as planned.

What would you destroy? : :

The plan is destroy everything that my created beings thought was real and then start the New Heaven and Earth. In the next age, they will know my servant David who will feed them new information within their consciousness forever. They will definitely obey all my commandments in the New Heaven and Earth experience.

He isn't, hence he as been following a 7,000 year plan to correct it, permanently


What would you be like as God?

Well if I had his wisdom, his foresight and his power I hope I would be as he is.


What would you fix?

Everything he is working to fix.


What would you destroy?

Everything he is going to destroy soon.

If I were God I would like to think I would do exactly what he has been doing to straighten this world out for the last 6,000 years, with about 1,000 years of the plan left to run, and by far the best 1000 years for humanity so far.

I certainly can't see a better or more permanent solution. I have read his explanations in scripture, and I can't fault what he is doing.

I know what he wanted to achieve, hence I know what he will achieve. The rather massive glitch in the middle is not his fault.

His original plan was for a Paradise earth populated by humans living eternally in perfect peace and security.

His plan will bring that about despite the enforced detour.
