    I'd mess around with fundamental constants and see what kind of universes I'd get.

    I'd disappear for a couple of thousands of years and show the world what their lives would be like without me, which intentionally would be almost hellish. Then I'd show up and be like "If you disobey me again, that'll happen. But since you seemed to have learned your lesson, give me a hug and let's get you an ice cream."

    If I were locally omnipotent?
    First, I'd make myself a helluvalot wiser. Probably wise enough not to meddle, and that would be that. End of story. :)

    If I were to interfere in some way, though, it would involve patronizing the arts. Some of my favorite authors, such as <utterly shameless plug>Dan Shive</utterly shameless plug> would suddenly "find" a $500 bill in their pocket. :D

    I still don't believe in meddling, though. If I kept this up at all, I'd be creating an artificial dependence. So I'd probably give society a few untraceable nudges, that people would keep around of their own accord, or which would have a one-time effect and be unnecessary from then on.

    For example, Osama's phone malfunctions, and his call is picked up by the FBI. The Bush Administration has a few of their documents leaked, and there's a world outcry. Certain pictures (ex: child pornography) posted to the Internet would suddenly have a date and timestamp on them, with a giveaway to the location. Depending on what insights I had once I was wiser, I might think it a good idea to un-secret a lot more secret documents. Area 51 would be exposed as a perfectly normal area, the Wedge documents would embarass the Creationists... the list goes on and on.
    "The light of truth shines too brightly, and shadows provide false shelter.

    But forcibly remove or change anything or anyone? No thank you. Humanity needs to take matters into its own hands. Removing a despot would lead to a universal lack of care, "Erik will remove him if he gets too evil".
    I will give people knowledge. Nothing more.

    I'd start the 100 Godesses Project(repeat every 2 months :lol: ), built a nice palace with huge bedrooms, and... just imagine the rest..., OR, I'd abduct women around the world, as Zeus did.

    I'd make sex compulsory for the people at least 2 times per day, and, especially for the most puritan religious people, at least 3 times per day at every imaginable...scenario.

    Guilty by association?

    Do I deserve to be threatened with a 'hell' because I am an atheist?

    I was asking silver2039 in particular why he would smite me.
    (Philosophical basis: The world has no inherent platonic idea of "theist", so silver would have to smite all of them manually, or list them manually before issuing a mass-smite. Either way, individuals get noticed.)
    We can cover the rights wrongs and wrongs of mass-smiting on an unsubtle basis later.

    No. God's going to ask you politely whether you want to go to heaven.
    Somehow I have a feeling you'll refuse, because you're you. :p In that case, you default to the alternative.

    Actually he would be made Pope per se for being the God of the Mods. (Not to take anything away from the other mods, they are very much appreciated as well.)

    Just kidding, I would do whatever I want.
