If it turned out there was a legitimate God, with proof of his existence and him being seen on a daily basis and all that jazz. But he just sat around all day and did fuck all. Would people worship him?

Even if a god did exist and was apathetic towards the human race, I still think people would beseech him and pray to him strictly because he/she/it has the potential to help them.

If there is even the slight possibility that this divine being could help you if you were able to convince him/her/it to act, people would reach out to that god.

Wonder how long they would remain that hopeful while he just sits down and wants to watch soaps though. Not his fault he can't really be arsed I suppose, he sort of deserves it if he made everything. More than most people could say they have done.

Or simply in fear that said god would smite them if they do not appeal to him.

I'm guessing the area he is at would gain giant herds of worshiping, and he would basically think all day I suppose.

It's indubitable that many would worship him, but many would resent him as well for being so apathetic and reluctant to help people. Assuming that Earth and human society is just the same(Or as identical to what we're familiar with as can be, given the circumstances), many would hate him. There would probably be no real atheists, and interestingly, new schools of thought within philosophy, law, etc. would probably exist since we would know that God exists.

But I can't imagine why a deity would be so lazy.

Definitely. If he did create the world there would still be a lot of people showing appreciation for this to me. Also, a lot of people alctually believe in our very own reality that there is a God, but that he doesn't interfere with life on Earth.

If we described this deity as a God, everyone would assume it's the benevolent God of their religion, rather than just an undiscovered higher power that created life, the universe, and everything.

People would most likely worship him due to fear of him striking them down. I can't say if I would worship him because i'm not entirely sure how I would feel in that situation.

and that.

Also, if I would to add one more reason they would worship him, it's that he created us. So I guess they would feel some kind of debt for that or something.

We already idolize talentless celebrities, mindless politicians and lazy corporate executives. Why wouldn't we worship a God who didn't do anything?

Of course. People worship him even when he doesn't exist. His mere existence would be enough to get christians and jews and muslims all moist in their pants/robes.

Well, when you create a self-sustaining multiverse with little to no interference required, your apathy meter tends to rise a bit I'd assume.

I think what you meant was if God was in a physical form, if we could truly see him and hear him would people still worship him. I think people would, because a majority of people are not as well informed or educated so those and those who they in-doctrine would worship him.

Which God are you even talking about, there are many to choose. I imagine you mean the Christian God. If so, then a lot of people would probably not worship him. People have enough trouble agreeing with their own government in the decisions it makes and does not make, so people would not worship God due to his rulings and thus they would probably be killed for it. Some might say that God wouldn't be so merciful, but if you read your Bible, out of all the people God doesn't like, critics are the ones he seems to have the most distaste for.

There would be people who would worship him out of fear and those who would want to retaliate against him. A futile attempt, but then again God has been known to be inept at things that happen on his creation. So overall yes people would still worship him, it would be hell on Earth though.

Then he would be a terrible god.

At some point, people would grow to doubt his power, due to his lack of action, and a war on "God" might would take place.

Ugh.

So.. what if God was one of us? Just a slob like one of us? I don't know. Probably like Jesus in his early years that they left out of the bible. He probably would be cynical.
