    Presumably their 'hotness' is determined by you, why cant the 'unhot' be granted passage to the holy area?
    Good point, we have got eternity. I'd make all females look exactly how they always wanted to look and bring all females up. The males can go **** themselves

    Wow. None of you should ever be gods.

    If I were a god I would cure cancer and get rid off AIDS/HIV.

    Presumably, if you were a truly good god, you wouldn't have created those diseases in the first place, nor allowed them to develop. There would, therefore, be no need for a cure.

    While that is true, I assumed that the OP was going off a scenario where I was to be a new god, so to speak.

    So you'd be an arbitrary god rather than a good god.

    At the end of the day, possessing that level of power renders everything meaningless. It doesn't matter what you do, you can have an infinite number of do-overs. Destroy the Earth? Just bring it back when you feel like it. Send a plague? Just go back and rewrite reality so it never happened. Go forward in time to the end of the universe? Cool. Then what? Have the answers to everything and anything? Okay, you're an uber-genius. Now? Cure diseases? End poverty? To what end? That would just be arbitrary, so why not just make the world perfect? Just to see what it looks like, and naturally when you see the horror of a world without flaws you can just revert it back. You're the ultimate moral authority, so no point fretting over whether or not what you're doing is right or wrong. Change the laws of nature by a whim? Okay, who cares? Who would know, but yourself? Why would you make others know? Ultimately it would turn anyone arbitrary at best, tyrannical at worst, as they simply get rid of/change what they don't like and keep what they do.

    Honestly, I'd probably just go on living my life the exact same way and then simply use my omnipotence for my convenience as and when I need it (if I need a fiver, just pop one into existence, for example).

    Short answer: I'd do whatever I want because when you're that powerful, everything ceases to matter.

    Yeah, I get your point.

    On the contrary, I think it is very possible that God can be categorised as 'nothing'.

    The problem I see is whether or not God truly can be omnipotent, omni-benevolent, omniscient, just, fair and a moral arbiter, whilst still maintaining the meaningfulness of his own existence. Shouldn't being the sheer embodiment of moral goodness render you exempt from being labelled as 'good'? You simply say stuff and it becomes 'good' by virtue of you being you. So is it really 'good' in the first place? This issue extends to whether or not he is just or fair.
    Can God truly love everyone at the same time? How would that translate into his actions? Is there any point to loving the most depraved of criminals? If God knows (assuming he is all-knowing) that the criminal will not redeem himself, then why does he love him? To affirm his own omni-benevolence? For who's sake? His own? If so, then can that truly be called 'love' for another? I would rather call that: The love of self (aka, narcissism).
    I don't think I need to explain the contradiction of omnipotence. It's been beaten to death by many greater than me.

    So for God to be God, would he not have to negate the meaningfulness of his own existence? As everything he does would cease to matter, there is no meaning as there is nothing he cannot not be. If you can be, do, say, eat, drink, breathe etc. whatever you want then I'd argue that your existence has zero meaning. And I'd also argue that an existence without meaning is equivalent to a non-existence (aka 'nothing'). So even if God existed, there's no reason why people would have to acknowledge it as an 'existence' or give it any meaningful attention.

    I'd argue that to provide meaning to your own existence, you'd have to limit yourself, limiting omnipotence would make it at best nigh-omnipotence. If anyone person was truly 'God' I doubt they would take the form of the Abrahamic God. They'd be more akin to Thor or something :/

    Wow that was a bit of a ramble.

    TL;DR - Basically, Thor > God.

    I would kill myself, imagine living alone for billions of years. Not my cup of tea.

    Bonus question.... if the big bang can't exist because nothing can come from nothing, how did God come to be ? What created him ?

    Magic T-Rexs back into existence so I can ride one and keep it as a pet. If it falls over I can just magic it back upright. That and stare at chemical reactions on a molecular level for an eternity, those insignificant humans can look after themselves for a while. I have stared at atoms for fun before, you should see the atoms in graphite under and electron tunneling microscope, they're so adorable!
