    I'd just sit around being omnipotent. I might throw lightning bolts at some random mortals just for fun.

    First I'd smack down Curt Sibling for not believing in me ;)

    Then,
    Mentally contact each person but give them wildly different religions! Then watch the fun!

    Promise them heaven if they follow a strict religious code with lots of pointless restrictions. Then, if they follow the rules, hand them over to the atheists and apostates to abuse as they see fit, in the afterlife. :evil: Hey guess what fool, I lied! :nya:

    Eh, seriously I'd probably do something a lot like Drool4Res-pect's idea. With the restriction that you can't put somebody else into your created universe without their consent. But you can put as many experienceless robots with souped-up AI in it as you want.

    You know what, all of you?
    I'm going to bookmark this thread.
    Then I'm going to bring it up Every. Single. Time. that someone appeals to the better side of human nature, inherent dignity, or the idea that humans are above animals. We're clearly not. We have more variance, and the intelligence to express ourselves.

    The number of people who, given omnipotence, would revel in the pain of others is just sickening.

    I'd tell shrub to play with some rusty farm machinery.

    If that was supposed to be an in-character post from the "Master of Evil" persona, it wasn't funny, it isn't helping your cause, and it proves my point. :rolleyes:

    You clearly need wisdom, Tao, or (more likely) both.

    Oh, and: "Such a pacifest-ass place"? I beg to differ. Loudly.



    In short, grow up. Mature.

    I'd kill OBL, and then send the wrath of George Washinton and 72 Virginians on him when he tries to knock on the pearly gates.

    Then I'd give Bush and Cheney leprosy, and Kerry too for good measure.

    And suddenly make Africa's GDP skyrocket.

    Maybe you should do the same. The human race has been at war for as long as recorded history and probably will be for rest of it's existance. I suggest you realise that it is the world we live in and that all the Taoism in the world can't change it, while most of the world's wisdom is being used to invent and perfect knew ways of killing other human beings. Sitting about moaning and being shocked over how greedy and self-centered humans are will serve no purpose but to make yourself unhappy, and everyone near you annoyed.


    PS: I have absolutely no idea what I would do if I was suddenly made God, most other people are probably in the same position, so lighten up and remember that this thread asks Humans what they would do if they were perfect and infallible, and does it while we are debased and ignorant.

    Not everyone. Just y'know, everyone who has wronged me. Is retribution such a bad thing? Why should they go unpunished, when I can teach them a lesson? I've got complete and utter omnipotence; seems like a waste not to gain revenge.

    I would establish a religon with a caste system but much social mobility

    The castes would be(from greatest to worst):
    X-Country runners
    Sprinters
    Joggers
    Walkers
    Fat Lazy people that sit on there butts​

    So, basically from least active at the bottom to most active at the top
    Social Mobility is high since all you have to do is run
    Also I will create a restaurant that gives free and unlimited pasta
    I will ban all sports except cross-country and track
    When you die you will go to heaven/hell based on how much you run, unless you are evil then you go to hell. Fat lazy people go to hell, and walkers have to spend a year in purgatory, while everyone else goes to heaven. Which leads me to get rid of all sicknesses and injuries, extending the life span by 50 years, and increasing humans average speed by 2 kilometers per hour.
    All food production and harvesting would be eliminated and I would make food appear in stores. There will be no arguements over what I mean as I will be on earth to tell you what I mean.

    I will also establish the semi-annual races which will race the half-mile, 1200m, mile, 2 mile, 5k, 10k, half-marathon and the marathon.

    Think of all the in shape people there will be. Also, no one will be ugly anymore except the fat and lazy people.




    Now worship me!!

    I agree
    That is so sick, the idea of revenge if you were to become God, I not for once thought of being evil. That shows a lot about the person's character

    True but compared to what the world used to be this is nothin. Mature? I'm simply speaking the truth. If you have Power use it. And I suggest use it to your benifet whsatever that may be.

    If you were God Hawkings puny brain would make you laugh. Btw, intelligence doesn't make you happy, usually very intelligent people are not the happiest people, quite the contrary.

    The Simpsons gives us much wisdom in this. There is an episode where Homer becomes smart and thus unhappy, he asks Lisa why? She explains that as intelligence goes up, happiness goes down, she even made a graph, hysterical, and oh so true.
