What if God died? was created by ZealotX
This is purely theoretical.

What if there was a God who created the Universe in 7 cycles which was roughly the equivalent of 700-1000 earth years and then died?

And what if everything, every story, every religion, was a "what if" theory about God still being alive?

Elegant question inderdaad.

Theories ... We like some of them.

Some provide "feelings" or a mental system to solve something, or allow us to ppreciate relationships with the world from a certain nuance. Does an idea exist just because we think about it? It depends on the context and utility.

What if all the goddesses or gods have already die? Could their creations and the connection they had with their creations remain just because the inspiration they evoked?
Memories, evaporation or mixed metaphors in the face "of the pain" that our actions do not remain alive.

Yesterday I saw an episode of the Lucifer series, where God loses his powers and likes: being human, but he also has a couple of impulses and misalignments (God is jealous of a man, kills him and then revives him, all this in seconds)

Thinking of the approximately 4200 religions of the planet, there are too many goddesses and gods created to endure the complications of life, to give meaning instead of dying and being dust, to feel protected against the natural adversities.

Imagining having a soul to feel alive "with something more" than matter... An idea might not exist according to the criteria we apply to it, but I recognize that it would be a relief to think that some gods or goddesses "who are still living" look at me and then give me a little gift of hope in the face of ambiguities and misfortunes.

If he died, I need to stand up for myself and enjoy healthy meaningful life as much I can

Same here. That's basically what inspired the question.

Question back: What do you mean by "what if"? Setting aside logistical problems and all of our reasons to suspect (quite strongly) that these century-long cycles wouldn't correspond to how the universe appears to have come to be now, of course we can entertain the hypothetical. So let's say this were so, and this God being "lived" by some definition of the term and then later died. Now, what do you mean by "what if"? Do you mean what are the consequences of its death to the subsequent behaviour of the universe? Perhaps you mean philosophical implications of a mortal creator being? It's a great question in that it can be explored in any number of directions. Did you have some particular ones in mind, then?

Better to leave questions unanswered than answers unquestioned
