QOTD: If You Could Become God, Would You?

This might seem like a nonsensical question for nonbelievers. I’d love for them to consider it, but I think it’s a more important question for believers to think about. Given what they believe about the characteristics of god, could they become him? How would they feel about the moral implications?

I couldn’t. Not if the god I’d be was an all powerful, all knowing, eternal being. Morality aside for the moment, being able to do anything you want would be pointless to me. Existence is about the potential, the striving, the unknown possibility. That alone would make me bored out of whatever passes for a skull in gods. And to be bored forever? That’s a nagging itch that can’t be scratched.

What do you think?

    It would have been very hard job, my Earthling friend. Continuously to listen of the people’s complaining and endless wishes; to be a god seems to deal with people’s infinite problems. đŸ™‚
