Inspired by this little quote from The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy:

"In the beginning, the universe was created.

This made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.
"

So here's the scenario; You're God, just sitting up in heaven with Jesus, all being the lord and shit, and the universe hasn't been created.

So there's this button in your house. Jesus is all like "Hey, Dad, what's that button do?" and you say "Oh, if I press it, somewhere in this other place a universe will be created." So Jesus, being a cool dude, says "Well, Dad, c'mon, lets press it. I can go into the universe and be the savior or something." And you think about it.

So given your limited knowledge of our universe, would you press the button, or would you refuse because of what the universe is?

TL;DR? If you were God, would you create the universe?

So I'm an alleged deity, who exists only in Heaven (a man-made concept), with my son Jesus (who is a man), but men aren't created yet?

You have just destroyed all possiblity of a universe, TS. Good job.

i've had a trip on the synthetic drug jwh-018 before where i created many universes. it was egotistical (unlike every other trip i've ever had) and profoundly uncomfortable. the power really really ****ing scared me. the bit i remember best was creating my university accomodation, and then killing all my friends one by one. (i couldn't control myself btw, my ego grew exponentially with each second and i just kept killing...). so no, if i had the chance now, i would not create a universe.

was much like this

Yeah, the TL;DR would probably have sufficed.

This is one hypothetical too far...

I dunno'. Sure, whatever.

I would probably make some smartass remark questioning the logical fallacies regarding my existence.

If I was god, then I'd know all there is to know about the as-yet-unmade universe, what with being all omnipotent and omniscient. So I'd probably make a judgement based on that. And it would be the right judgement, because I would be god and I'm pretty sure god, by definition, ain't never wrong.

If you're talking about your average Judeo-Christian god, who is supposed to be omniscient and omnipresent and all that bollocks, I probably wouldn't because I would know exactly what it would be like anyway, but then again since I know exactly what is going to happen in the future, I don't really have a choice of whether or not I press the button, because I would not really be all powerful since the fact that I have foreknowledge of everything that will happen entails that there can only be one path which therefore... whatever, you get the fucking idea.

However, if I'm less confusing and paradoxical god, I would probably be like "Jesus, don't be so irresponsible, it's your bedtime" then press the button when no-one is looking.

This is not hypothetical in my case. If you look around you can see the decision I made.
