RE: What type of person would you trust with godly powers?
I personally think that having just omniscience would just be awful. To know everything would be to not have any emotions. Almost all negative emotions come from the unknown. We get angry at what we don't understand or at the unexpected. Omniscience would eliminate this. It would also eliminate your curiosity. I'm at a loss as to weather you'd be awed by your knowledge, depressed by it, or ultimately ambivalent about it. Probably the last one, because you'd know exactly why you might have felt those other emotions, you'd see right through your own psychology, leaving yourself naked and bare before your own infinite knowledge.

Just see the movie 'Watchmen' and tell me if you'd want to be Dr. Manhattan, with the knob turned up to 11.
