As some will know, I am not a god-botherer, but my imagination runs wild when I think of all the good things that could be done at this moment if there was a god.
If you were a god, what would you fix first and what things would you change?
Well the biggest problem IMO is that people don't get along. I'd help them see the light so that all the petty conflicts, wars, greed that are wasting away our resources could be ended. Instead redirecting our energy to improving the condition of the world as in ending poverty, universal health care for all, etc. etc good stuff.
Jefacity, that would clean up more problems than are obvious. A nice idea.
It's the hair Doug, I'd have expected it to be a little more neat and tidy.
I am Hanuman.
Well, I'm not sure actually Doug. I haven't seen any psychotic behavior to confirm it so far though.
I had not considered it before, but now that you mention it, you may well be.
I would eliminate religion, then eliminate NEED
and rerstore it with Dignity, space and equality for everyone, all nations
then I wouold work on the elimination of money and the drive for it GREED
Why? There is no reason for the elimination of money now. And, greed? It's misunderstood to begin with.
But, since you were a god, I guess you could do what you want.
why, because money is a means of power over another..?
to me it is a source of un-equality and a tool for manipulation of Survival of the fittest, an excuse to strive for power over others.
I was thinking maybe if it were not so...better for all people
but again if I was omniscent I would already know the answers and would have no need to act, hmmm....
Actually, that is a misconception about money.
Again, this follows the above misconception.
In actuality, it's not. Humankind has to eliminate money on it's course. In order to do that though, education is key.
Point taken. But I do see Greed and lusts for power as stronger emotions and a blinding side to education. Maybe more like psychological conditioning than just education alone. Not sure. Some type of development or evolving away from that.
I wrote two hubs addressing both- Money and Greed.
#1) How Greed Can Lead To Selfless Purpose(which lead me to write my most recently posted hub as well)
#2) Learn- The True Power of Money(the URL as states something quite different(The Unrealistic Power of Money)
I recently changed the title on the second hub.
Faith wouldn't be a requirement for belief. Simply because I would already know in advance that faith wouldn't be enough, because I would know what I needed to know about human nature.
I agree, you would know it all in advance, which would pose the problem of why would you do anything at all!
Humor me a little, and lets just see it like a super-man then.
I think stopping pain and suffering for all sentient life would be a good start.
We simply do not need it anymore.
Human- Why Mankinds are so special ?
God: Mankind ? hmm, just another species on planet earth right ? Why should i give any more of my time to these species when i have millions of other species to take care of ? Salvation, light, guidance, prayers and all is BS. I don't waste my time to guide you folks, adapt or die in this universe. If you fail to do that then i have thousand other plans to repopulate this planet. You're no special to me. Give me one good reason why you're so special to me out of millions of species in my list ? Love from me ? BS, get on with some female in your species or else get a life
ban religion to start with and then explain to humans that they are on their own and there is auto system which operates and god doesnot interfere...
I'd create a planet where it is mostly inhospitable; 70% underwater, massive deserts, high mountain ranges and ice caps etc. I'd then make smallpox, cholera and AIDS. Then I'd create tsunamis and earthquakes.
Oh, then I'd just chill out and amuse myself watching one in every four children dying before the age of five for the first 250,000 years of humans' existence.
Well, there's no guarantee an omniscient god could do anything. If he simply knew everything, there's no guarantee that he could interact and do anything to intervene or change it. You probably need to make him omnipotent too, if you're looking for help, or guidance.
A truly omniscient being would have nothing to do except watch, any one thing it did would create an opposite reaction - so whether it was good or bad - everything it did would still have an equal and opposite reaction - so it couldn't actually DO anything.
Obviously I'd start with putting a bit more of an effort into solving the old "Why can't we all just get along" question, a few days of Whitney Houston warbling "I believe the children are our future, teach them well then let them fend for themselves" should do it.
After that it would just be a series of blowing things up, randomly messing with gravity and other shenanigans purely for the fun factor.
Oh, and everyone would be supplied with and required to care for their own pet badger.
Hmmmm interesting idea, I may have to employ you as some sort of demi-god in charge of badgers, and Belgium, they get their own demi-god because they make such great chocolate.
Although now I'm thinking along those lines maybe Denmark should have one too, after all they do provide the bacon for the all important bacon butties.
I'd want a more interesting country than Belgium (although they do good beer and they invented chips). Offer me Brazil or something, then I'll take your offer.
Also I'd like to be in charge of Lions and Tigers. Can I bring bck the sabretoothed tiger? It'd be like Thundercats round my place.
Fair enough, I've considered your counter-proposal and I hereby declare you demi-god in charge of Brazil, lions and tigers (specifically sabre toothed ones.)
Seems I still need someone to handle those pesky Belgians.
Badgers are Ros`e not pink....and they are only misunderstood...not evil...LMAO...
A badger insulted me once.
I was just sayin hello to him.
You should have heard the abuse! Boy did I get told off! I have never spoken to a badger since then.
Bad tempered little buggars.
LOL... well yes...but that wasn't a "true" badger....
I must admit, I was badgering him a bit. Not a true badger eh? One of them pretend badgers then.
I will have to read your coming thesis on the little buggars.. err... badgers then.
Just because it claimed to be a badger...It does not follow the true path of what a badger should be...therefore it can only be a muskrat...
Aha! I read about muskrats in a few of Honore De Balzac's books.
Crafty little creatures..
I wonder if anyone else (besides those select few) will understand what we are actually talking about...LOL
I gotta say, I dunno, I don't often see articles on the front page of the newspaper like "Muskrat insults man" or "Muskrats raid Melbourne grain stores" so maybe they're out of favor with the press.
You know something?
You are almost as silly as I am!
and pretty droll as well.
I like that!
Thought I'd freshen this thread up seeing as we have a few wags onboard today.
I guess the more I think about this, If it were possible.
The only thing to do would be to tell all those created the truth!
Not allow a supernatural tale like the one we have now to spread and do all this dammage as it has..?
Hey Earnest, remember, the best method for an omniscient god would be to be completely hands off(that's the true wisdom others refuse to learn).
if he is real, yes, but.....
look at this mess..? No god did this!!!!! lolol

After all the claims made by biblical religionists that the biblical god is all of the above, none of this god's actions seems to fit these lofty roles. For example, the biblical god has to be worshiped, which hardly seems to be an omni-anything trait and not worthy of any leader of men. I decided...

That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is indication of a logical fallacy.
by JoshuaVerum 2 years ago
People who blame God for suffering are therefore claiming He exists!Many atheists do this too which is ironic as they claim He doesn't exist. I call it the " Blame God Paradox ".
