No, because then whenever our followers do something stupid (trust me, they will) WE will get the blame.

Simple solution. Smite the ones who do and give good fortune to the ones that follow us devoutly. ....yeah. 

So like when Mr. Incredible defeated Syndrome?

I don't even have the context to make a witty retort. When did I defeat this syndrome?

No, I mean when this happened at the end of The Incredibles:



Imo no, I don't trust humanity with power of gods. We have one God and thats good enough imo.

Eh?
No, thanks. Being immortal does not seem fun.

I agree that dying naturally is the way to go but to your point Being immortal is more fun than being dead. You can't have fun with 6 feet of dirt ontop of you.

It would be sad to see everyone you love die, and then again, and again, and again...... I think the afterlife, whatever people believe it to be, could be fun.



The problem is , you are born as human and will be dead in near future , God is not created but is exist eternally without created. God does not born or dead, nor live on the time and space and have the same concept like us.

If that's the case, then logically, god isn't an actual person or creature, but a force of the universe.

What if this is the afterlife to get away from the real life...hmm. Hammer, nail, bang.

Well... if that´s the case,  then... why are we suffering in these physical dying bodies ?.... is this hell after all? 

Interesting concept, though.

pretty sure ancient civilizations from all the way back in 4000BC would think of us as gods, and people from 100 years ago would think of us as wizards.

We’re less advanced today, in many areas, than people 100 years ago expected we would be. This time period would be in the middle of the FW Mader era and post-HG Wells. Aldous Huxley and isaac Asimov are just around the corner. So I wouldn’t go so far as to assume they would think we’re magical rather than more technologically advanced.

4000 year old civilizations, I would say it depends who you talk to. While less advanced, the average intelligence potential was slightly higher among our ancestors. Also, in 4000 BC, we wouldn’t look like they would have expected gods to look, we would look like people who have trouble speaking; the more human resembling gods came a little bit later in history (and even then, most of the intellectual community among Greeks and Middle Easterners acknowledged that gods were only depicted as anthropomorphic for convenience sake (Xenophanes, writing in the 5th and 6th century BC, has a good writeup on how men depict gods in their own physical image for convenience, and that the true image of gods doesn’t resemble people)  - in addition, our technology still looks like gadgets rather than the sorts of control that they believed gods had. For the lower intelligence people, you can convince people today that you’re a messiah or a god, and Pharaoh’s did it in ancient Egypt, so it’s possible - but depends on the culture, and it also depends how you slot yourself into it; the Pharaoh’s most certainly would have acted the part significantly better than any of us would be capable of.

I think it would be WAY more difficult than you think to convince even 6000 year old primitives that you’re a god: as some evidence, we have come in contact with tribes recently who were even more primitive than 6000 year old settled areas, and even they didn’t think we were gods - although there is an island where they decided that Prince Philip was a god; but that has mostly to do with the fact that they recognized as the Patriarch the British people, even though he is technically of lower rank than Queen Elizabeth II. I think it’s more likely that they would see us as human.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

But whyyyyyyyyyy?

We could marry our cousins.

Come to europe, we can marry our cousins (if we want to).

Wait, does that mean we europeans are already god?

Isn't humanity the closest thing to a god, this planet has ever seen. We are literally the beings who can decide which species or goes extinct. Humanity as a collective can put nations or cities to ashes with a single weapon, hell we can blow up the etire earth. Although looking to it from that angle humanity is more like Satan's incarnation and image than that of god. We kill, polute, potion, waste, and destroy every ecisystem on the planet for our own advancement. So no we simply can't be (the Christoan version of god), but humanity can become Satan for every being on earth.
