If you were able to create a new world what would you leave out, and what would you add in?
Imagine that you have died, and met with God (or anyway met with an obviously higher power) and are told:
"Well done, we liked you life's work; you can create your own planet"
(start small, you can work up to universes and galaxies later)
How would YOU create it, would you have humans (or similar) would you give them free will or just options?
I don't think I would change a thing, I think we live in the best possible world we could considering that we have free choice.
Hmm... I would simply create a replica of this world but will make the humans in my world be more accessible to wisdom. I will ease their difficulty in receiving words of wisdom from higher powers.
I will then set a law into motion that will make survival difficult for anyone who cannot practice agape love. Just as it is difficult to survive this world without breathing in air and oxygen.
I guess I would like to reunite all the continents again. These will increase our collective wisdom and will also improve our point of view towards humanity and nature. As the resources then would be shared so there will be scope ample brotherhood..no other way. Rest of the things are good. May be we can rebuild Ozone though.
I'd leave out 80% of the people, and put in more grilled rack of lamb.
I always believe in spiritual world where our spirits have reached the way of enlightenment and fully understand the purpose of being human beings after returning as spirit form.
It is an aim to be in the form of spirit and living in the kingdom with God. So if I am to create a new world then it will be a paradise for spirits where we will live with LOVE and omitting out those jealousy, hatred, fighting, wars, etc.
I believe that is the objective of what God wants us to be and so I will create this new world where everyone has only LOVE for one another.
To borrow a quote from the movies, "When things are at their worst, you are at your best.", which is such a pity really. By and large, that is quite true for most of us, as it is only when our backs are against the wall that we perform at our best.
For my planet, I would create humans itching to perform at their best every single time, every moment of their lives. They will have free will, of course, and be highly intelligent and creative. They can do as they please, but they will have to bear the consequences of their own actions. They will only have themselves to blame and to credit, without a God to punish or reward them.
I will leave them alone and watch from afar to see what wonders or abominations they can conceive of and create.
No snakes, Lizards, cockcroach, rats and bacterias...Let there be delightful flower filled with fragrance grow in the place of fungus, algae and all the colourful butterfly grow in the place of mosquitoes.
No factor will cause the oxygen to deterioate .
Beautiful question---really. I think each of us who begins to answer feels as though he/she is actually creating it merely by describing it. I would just like to add the conclusion to an article I just posted:
"...this writer has concluded that there is yet again an imbalance between the sexes. What is most discouraging is that it is still an inequality brought on by man. Nature or God if you prefer, meant for one sex to compliment the other. In the past men had physical superiority over women and thus were the hunters and protectors and later in the more sophisticated centuries, the providers.
Today those roles have been blurred if not abolished since there are equally strong and clever women. Thus, while it does seem that women have expanded their roles and responsibilities into man's realm, men continue to dominate the economic scene. Tragically, in the name of progress, we are anihialting our own kind by producing products and having adopted a lifestyle that is killing off the male sex, which inevitably will mark the end of humanity. In the words of some writers who answered the question posed to them: “What truly matters is that we respect, love, support and encourage each other.”
For the sake of the future of the huma race, it is this writer’s ambition that working together for the common good and using what each sex has excellence in, men and women alike can find common just ground on which to function harmoniously and protect each other."
I hope it's clear enough.
I'd leave out lawyers and politicians and add more tropical beaches and ice cream!
I'd keep it all, all the nature and earthly things we have. It's quite amazing really. What I would change though is human nature. The propensity to make excuses, avoid realities, and the lack of understanding we have with the Earth around us. More responsible and sustainable would be it. And I'd let the big banks fail! Oops.
First I would thank GOD for this opportunity and let GOD konw that GOD is always welcomed to visit my planet, so I could continue to do my best to try to serve. Ok that is it for humility
Ok you said start small, I would have went the other way, creating universes and multiple dimensions first.
The planet would not be like earth. I would create 1 million different forms of life. I would be capable of changing my form at will. I would have a sky that changes colors based on how I feel. There would be no kill of anything on my planet.
I have to be honest there would be no free will. My planet just do as I instruct. I would write many stories and created the characters and have then play the story out to entertain my self.
I would have fun at all time. I would do what ever I want to do. When I am in human form I would create people to play with. I would not let them know they did not have free will. They would enjoy thinking that they were making their own decision, while I was secretly pulling their string, because in a way that would be my real job.
If I did cause my creations pain because one of the stories I put them in was painful. I would remove the memory from them at the end of their existence. I would not want to create spirits because I think real spiritual beings should have free will and since I would not be the original creator I would not want to do harm any spiritual beings from the original creation.
I would not want the original GOD to get upset with me so I really would ask what I could do and what I could not do out of respect.
Nice question, Sorry I rambled on.

How can Christians believe God is good if he creates a world where there is free will and...everyone happens to choose wrongly, causing misery and pain to everyone in the world? I'm not assuming Christians are better or worse than everyone, I'm just trying to understand the basis for the...

If God asked you to play the role of a demon would you?I was told we came from the spiritual word and we chose to be here to learn how to please God. My question is if you were in the spiritual world with God and it really was God you were asked to come to this planet to play the role of a...

Most conservative Christians will tell you that there can be no sin in heaven. Jesus died for our sins, and the only way those sins can be forgiven is if we accept this "free gift" offered. Otherwise, we burn in hell. However, there are two problems with this view. ...
