Let's just fantasize for a moment:

There is a god; and everyone knows it. What would you do? How would you behave in such a world? How would you think of death?

What does she do?
Is she the psychopath of Abraham's religions or does she not give a fck what happens because she's god after all, nothing would concern a god, that would mean that she was lacking something and gods allegedly lack nothing?

Because god cares about every cancer cell, and disease bacterium as much as she does about her people.

I think it would creep most people out to know that they were being watched 24/7.
I predict mass paranoia and other stress-related mental illness.
I predict that online porn viewing would virtually cease.
I predict a sharp decline in masturbation.
I predict no more paedophile priests.

On second thoughts theists already believe in a God who watches over them and judges them and they engage in the above activities regardless. No, I'll take back the above and say that nothing much will change. Okay?

I don't mean "everybody believes it", I mean "everybody KNOWS it".

What do you think would happen in that world?

Are you suggesting that theists believe but don't really believe? Wash your mouth out with soap! There is no shortage of theists who will tell you that they KNOW God exists. You are calling them liars or at least deluded. They are very touchy about that. Be careful.

They really do believe, but they still don't know (though they think they do).

Well; they are deluded.

He didn't say 'your god', he said 'a god'. Could be Odin, Ra, Ahura Mazda, Marduk, Zeus, Brahma, Quetzlcoatl, or any of hundreds of others.

Knowing that God exists wouldn't change much, unless we also knew how we figure into that reality.

Lots of people already believe God exists, but they still have their own ideas about how that effects their reality. And until that changed, there would be no change.

Why? What better evidence do you have for your deity than anyone else has for theirs?

I didn't ask what you would do; that would be obvious. What I asked was how do you think the world would change.

I believe the world would change mostly for the better, people would be happy to worship the Lord, but there would still be those whose pride would keep them in opposition to God. Scripture tells us that even during the millennial rule of Christ there will still be rebellion which vividly illustrates the sinfulness of mankind.

No other God has defeated death or claimed that they would be resurrected from the grave.

Once again, where's your evidence that any of that happened? All you're doing is parroting a 2000 year old book that has no independent confirmation of any of the miraculous events described therein.

Actually there is plenty of independent confirmation, but not everyone is actually looking for it, or will accept it.

What does she do?
Is she the psychopath of Abraham's religions or does she not give a fck what happens because she's god after all, nothing would concern a god, that would mean that she was lacking something and gods allegedly lack nothing?

For the sake of the point; let's assume it's the former.

So the God you are asking us to consider in this hypothetical is definitely the Abrahamic God of the Old Testament?

Just specify which god you're answering about; it doesn't have to be the abrahamic one.

Let's just fantasize for a moment:

There is a god; and everyone knows it. What would you do? How would you behave in such a world? How would you think of death?

What does she do?
Is she the psychopath of Abraham's religions or does she not give a fck what happens because she's god after all, nothing would concern a god, that would mean that she was lacking something and gods allegedly lack nothing?

You don't know her at all which explains well your bitterness, and for that truly I sympathize with such struggles.
