1) Prove my existence beyond a shadow of a doubt.
2)Tell everyone that I meant it when I said “Love thy neighbor as thyself” and “judge not lest ye be judged.”
3) Smite everyone who didn’t listen to #2.

Edit: PnL’s link reminded me of one other thing:
4) Do away with any form of organized religion.

Jesus, PnL! I thought I had a clever and original question and you have to go and f**k that up!
Seriously, I don’t remember that Q. And a JackAdams Q at that! I hate when that happens.
Relunctant lurve for setting me straight.

@PnL- Oh my God! You are right! I swear I didn’t remember that. It’s even one of my stupid, smartass answers too. I deserve to lose lurve for that.
Damn. I’m too young for senility!

Days 1 through 6 – convince as many fundamentalists as possible that there is more than one religion.

Day 7 – Leave a messiah that is the savior for every major religion that tends to exclude people. This means one person to finish up my work.

Make every single person live 7 days in the shoes of the person they loathe the most.

I would do nothing, other than try to figure out where the fuck I came from.

I don’t see why people feel bad for asking the same question twice. There are always new users and I like this question a lot. I wouldn’t have found the older one and I want a turn to answer! So more lurve to you for this question, whether you like it or not. :P

Heard that.

So many of these answers are such wonderful ideas.
Here are a couple to add:
Show people that truth can be found in the journey and struggle with faith, not just the facts.
Answer the question “why do people suffer?”
Convince humankind that diversity is a good and safe thing.
Help people to come to terms with the possibility that there may be more than one right answer.

AstroChuck's avatar

@cdwccrn- Great answer.

Noon's avatar

1: explain that truth cannot be found in th ”..journey and struggle with faith” is no reason to believe in me, and that I should have given hard evidence and that was a mistake on my part.
2: Not have people suffer. I mean if I was, then why bother with suffering. Just simply stop it.
3. Finally, leave one just one book explaining everything unambiguously. And not a list of rules, just a text book on everything we ever wanted to know. And remove all memory of ever having been another book.


PS: Oh and maybe as a bonus if everyone was good, I would make the president of the United states a black atheist lesbian. And EU president a Roma gay man etc. Just for fun.

@noon: life would not be nearly the gloriou adventure that it is your way.

i would make a band and sing “what if god was one of us…”. nah but seriously the question i think is a trick question; trying to differentiate us into the “the childish” or “the selfish” or “the corny” people… i think the question should be phrased as: whom is naive enough to think they can be god for a week?

DrasticDreamer's avatar

@akanda: Actually, the question should be phrased exactly as is. It’s hypothetical. “What would you do if you were God?” That’s like saying someone who asks, “What would you do if you won $100 million dollars” shouldn’t have bothered asking because the chances of anyone winning that amount of money are so low that you may as well not even ask, hypothetically, which is ridiculous. Imagination goes a long way.
