Let's say you wake up one day and are all powerful but, to keep things interesting, you are not omniscient. You have no way of knowing for sure what the implications of your actions can be. You cannot be killed and you do not age. You have some reality altering powers but let's avoid boring ones like "i snap my fingers and all is good in the world". All humans have free will.


What would you do. One thing or many? How far would you go. How would you change society? What would the moral implications be?


(let's see if you find this game interesting. Add some rules if i forgot any and you think would make it more interesting)

First thing I would need to know is…. Is there and afterlife?

If there was then my mission would go to ensure everybody made it.

If there wasn’t I’d probably be a mixture of Dr Who and General Zod.

If someone became God then their actions will be determined by their past. People will have all kinds of baggage to sort out which will influence their actions.

God of the bible no doubt had the same issues. There was Satan and a bunch of rebels to deal with and no doubt lots of other matters to sort out as God.

Err, general zod wanted to be god emperor of mankind and dr who is (to my very very limited knowledge having not watched the show) a silent shadow influencer

How do you reconcile the two.

Having created human reason, I would be set about proving all the deists right by not getting involved.

If I woke up and found I was God, but with limited powers, I'd probably go on a rampage and kill everyone.

Problem solved.

a bit old testament-ey of you


everyone evil, everyone republican, everyone vegan or just everyone.


i am assuming that because you said rampage, you don't have an end goal. Bear in mind you just got your powers, you still have to live on this planet until you find out if you can travel somewhere else. A planet full of corpses might be a bad place to live

yeh but how

remember you can't snap your fingers and magically make it better. you have to take discrete actions.
