What Would You Do If Yahweh Revealed Himself?
What would you think and/or do if the being called Yahweh in the Old Testament revealed himself to humanity as a whole, and demonstrated his abilities to do everything he is described doing in the OT, (parting seas, sending plagues, raining heavenly fire etc.)?

Personally,I Would hope humanity would try to study this being further and determine if it could be defined under natural laws, in which case it would be just a scary powerful alien, not a god. If not...I have no idea, I guess it'd be time to start rebuilding that Temple in Jerusalem.

File charges of public indecency.

Probably die from plagues or raining fire.

I'd say, if the myths had any basis in a fact of a powerful being, the most likely scenario would be that they are just that: A BASIS. I'd sooner believe that generations of word-of-mouth history of documents assembled, edited, and controlled by people with a political agenda grounded in the day-to-day was so severely flawed after its execrable chain of custody, that it still couldn't be trusted. In other words, starting with a clean slate, fresh eyes, and an inquiring mind would be the way to go, with no assumptions about its character, intentions, or desires.

.... but I doubt that enough of humanity would react in the same way for my opinion to matter much.

Unfortunately, I think you're right, humanity would probably be divided into two sides; the "Oh Shit it's God let's all bow down and worship" group, and the "Fire missiles at the alien that just blew up Moscow" group.

Neither would probably go particularly well.

I assume for a lot of people, this would resemble it, 1:03 onwards.

How does the non-existent "reveal" itself ?

I will assume you mean, "What would you do if Yahweh was a real being who found it's way to Earth" ?

I would probably join up with Lucifer and his army of angels and lead them to defeat the evil bastard.

I'd check into a mental institution.

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

Start a petition for immediate, universal distribution of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. Then watch him squirm as the entire human race realized where he falls on that scale.

I'd say how terribly sorry I am. I would then pray for His forgiveness.

Well, he's not necessarily God in this scenario, he's just a being that is capable of doing everything described in the Tanakh. Could just be an alien.
