I love these kinds of threads. ATS should have more of them because I'd probably participate in all of them (
then again, I'd actually have
to check for them. which i don't. not enough time. don't judge me
). Anyway, let's begin.
0. Most of these wouldn't matter because I'd program my "humans" not to have any negativity or selfishness. They'd be 150% loving, peaceful, socialist
hippies that adored my other creations (nature, space, lifeforms, etc). Their only forms of "competition" would be things like seeing who could be the
nicest, who could develop new algorithms the fastest, or seeing who could increase crop yields the most. So none of the negative stuff would even
exist. Then again, that means they wouldn't be fully "free" mentally, but oh well.
1. Global Deluge. Honestly, i wouldn't pay much attention to it. Every single heavy rain or flood is a "flood of Biblical proportions" to the insects
& other small creatures that exist. Just as every tornado or wildfire could wipe out all life in that tiny ecosystem of ants or microbes.
2. Sodom & Gamorrah. Since my creations would all be friendly & loving hippies, the unforgivable crimes that led to this extinction level event never
would've happened in the first place. If you go back & read the story, God supposedly sent 2 Angels disguised as men. The townspeople kept demanding
those 2 disguised Angels come outside so they could basically be gangraped. That's
the final straw that decided their fate, not homosexuality
or idol worship (which they'd done for a long time yet hadn't been destroyed for it). So yeah, if my creations tried to gangrape any of my other
creations (much less my personal assistants), I'd see it as a flaw in their AI & delete them, just as you'd delete a flawed post.
3. Exodus from Egypt/KMT. The Israelites never would've been 2nd class citizens in the now socialist Utopia known as KMT/"Ancient Egypt". So there'd
be no need for me to "free" them.
4. Genocides to clear the Promised lands. All of my lands would be shared among all of my creations, so there would be no concept of a holy land,
promised land, forbidden land, etc.
I don't really believe in the promised land concept anyway, particularly not when the Israelites were such ungrateful d-bags. In the Book of Judges
alone, they rebelled against God at least 5 times (that I can remember). And nearly the entire history of the Kingdoms of both Judea & Israel are
filled with those kings and their people constantly opposing God & His Prophets (Book of Kings). In fact, something like 10-14 of the Judean Kings
rejected the same God who granted them the Promised Lands in the first place (hence why God lifted His protection from them & allowed them to be
crushed). In fact, they instantly started rejecting God with the Prophets Moses & Aaron, to the point Moses broke the original Tablets in fury at
5. (Sigh)... why are you only wanting the Bible's versions? You know we're going to be the biggest religion eventually, right?
Besides, the Bible
only tells things from the Tribe of Judah's point of view, particularly after Solomon's son Rehoboam split Judea from the 10 Northern Tribes of
Israel. So what makes you think only their versions are true? Especially when their versions of the events are different from what the versions of the
10 Northern Tribes of Israel say (aka, the Samaritan Pentateuch)?
Extra Credit: I think one of the major misunderstandings is this: In Islam, human souls are only here to experience this temporary existence on Earth
as a series of tests. We're one of the few creations with "free will" (our free will is "the ability to reject or accept our Creator", not "the
ability to make a decision on our own"). So we're given a bunch a different tests in this basically simulated world, in order to determine our true
characters. As in, it's easy to say you'd never rob someone; but what if you're poor & hungry? The accumulated results of these tests will determine
if we're fit for the "next level" (hence the whole point of Judgment Day, Heaven & Hell.)
I guess it would be like if humans finally created fully functioning, self learning AI robots. Before allowing them to roam around in our own
communities/societies, we'd probably place them in simulated environments & observe them. The ones that are positive & helpful would "pass" while the
negative & spiteful ones would "fail". And if they were originally created to be friends to us, their human creators, it wouldn't make much sense to
allow the ones that hate or reject humans into our societies either, would it?
