If you were god

    If you were god....

    ....and had low self-esteem, would that be blasphemy?

    Perhaps God attained his rather inflated ego via a process of natural selection, since all the self-hating Gods before him were required to smite themselves into oblivion. And God #1536 said "Let there be light", and there was light, but he wasn't happy with it and thought it could be much more energy-efficient, thus proving his own fallibity and disappearing inside a paradox?

    What's this "if" thing?

    edit: oh, sorry, misread. I thought you meant a god.

    I don't know about self esteem, but I would make a taco so hot that even I couldn't eat it.

    I would just compensate for my low self-esteem by creating billions of creatures that are vastly inferior to me.
    Is that blasphemy?

    Why would god care? If I were god and had a low self esteem I would make my penis larger, and then create numerous good looking women.

    I just found another problem:

    Could god create a woman so beautiful that she would be too stuck up to sleep with god?

    You can't call yourself "God" when you have low self-esteem.
