Just for fun, imagine that you are God of all creation and you accidentally create a little planet called Earth. Rather then destroy it you let it live, because you are a merciful God. When you come back, approximately 4 billion years later, you find that a species that call themselves humans have populated it. These are annoying, pestilent creatures and you decide to do away with them for the good of the universe. How would you kill the human race?
You created them, just wave your hand and *poof* they're gone. Now the world can start healing from the man made destruction. If you're really a God, reverse everything they've done from the beginning and really fix things.

Play Rod Stewart until the earth blew itself up like a suicide bomber.

Jow, the fact that you began this thread means you might want to take a look into that "Narcissistic Quiz" thread on the same page.

We meek mortals live in thrall of the excitement to see what a living god will score.

Not with a bang, but a whimper.
But I'll make sure I do a lot of banging before ending things.

No, I'm not talking about Mjölnir (Thor's Hammer) when I say "banging".

Create a free energy device that converts water to a more stable substance. Eventually there is no water.

The fun part is when the human race realizes that the device will eventually kill them all but they keep using it anyway because that's what they're used to.

I'd just grab the earth, bring it to the Sun and merge with it. Good riddance of all present and future problems.

Have the humans invent a mind numbing visual machine so mindless yet captivating that all humans will gaze into it for hours on end and forget to do normal activities necessary for the continuation of the species.
Oh sorry. HE has already tried that and failed.

I'd turn off electricity and combustion and throw out like four Cthulhus and a pack of Fenri. After things started getting hairy for humanity, I'd conjure up a Justice League of America just to keep things going, but I'd probably get bored after a while and go have sex with my army of supermodels and eventually Superman would get the W.

Honestly I'd just wait for some cosmological event in the heavens to wipe them out like a giant solar flare or supernova and then just take credit for it. That or I would slowly raise the earths temp over the course of a few hundred years that way like the frog in a pot they never suspect a thing.

Hehe. If i were a god i should also consider all possible 'predictions' including all emergent factors(brains and consciousness--every knots and bolts--'everything') not just the physics. Why would i kill something that i knew all along. I rather make fun of them; Like make the universe homogeneous and slightly tweak it, put 'darky' in the mix, that will keep my creation @ bay. (ancient alien guys would be very proud)..

You'll need to use some 'unpredictable' matter from other world to change things in this world according to your wish.

Just how the world ends doesn't matter. What matters is what we can do to save ourselves. Some have thought deeply about this.

'Godly complicated' matter/physics perhaps. What's the point of 'god' if you can't even predict. So, i don't need useless stuff like strings and dimensions. . I'll create a self sustaining existence, a system that will last forever just like me. cough*.


Re: How would you end the world? I will and let physics do the work. But then again, i knew all along what will happen.
