What if we proofed God

For this what if the premise is that we proofed that God exist scientifically and we know he is real. Now for some questions:

1. Would you trust God
2. What would you ask if you can ask questions
3. Would you accept him or just continue like normal and do everything you did before you knew
4. Would you investigate how to kill him
5. If you could ask questions and give him tasks, how would you proof or disprove his omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient
6. Anything else you are willing to add.

Like i said this is premise it does not matter if you believe or not.
 
1. We kind of have no choice, if God is all-powerful. We just have to hope he's a good guy.
2. I'd ask him to explain all the religions, which of them are true, and what his moral laws really are.
3. Probably same as before, as long as he doesn't give specific orders to do otherwise.
4. Yeah, can't harm. But if he's omniscient, that's kind of a bummer.
5. I thought we already proved all that. Otherwise I'd probably ask "what am I thinking right now?" Too lazy to think of more.

With 5 its to see how powerful he is, we only proofed he exist not how powerful he is. With 4 if its alive then it should be able to kill it, would it be hard yes but impossible no it should not.

Premise accepted for the sake of discussion. Answers are as follows -

1 - No, generally, but it depends on what you mean and which God you're referring to (there's a LOT of unpacking to do here)
2 - So, so, so many things, most of them would start with 'why' rather than 'how'
3 - Accept that he exists? Or accept as in embrace? If the former then yes, if the latter then no or at least not necessarily
4 - If the God we're talking about can be killed I'm not really sure (I'd have to think about it a bit) if it would qualify as a 'God' under any definition I'd be accepting of.
5 - The God would need to prove those attributes, I could think of challenges to them, many a paradox springs to mind here

1. The God of the Bible
2. That’s a good point not how but why.
3. People may decide themselves
4. See one so would you investigate it
5. Paradoxes is always a nice one. I don’t know what series it was but there was an entity that came after a persons soul and to save him he could ask 3 question and tasks. He ask one question that was nonsense but he gave to much information. One question was if he could get lost the answer was no, the task that he gave him was to get lost.

1. Would you trust God
That depends on what type of god it is.

2. What would you ask if you can ask questions
I would be amazed if anything a god could tell us would be intelligible, much like trying to explain evolution to an ant.

3. Would you accept him or just continue like normal and do everything you did before you knew
Accept? Not sure what you mean by this. However, I would continue as normal. I would be but a speck to a god, so why would it care what I do.

4. Would you investigate how to kill him
Yes.

5. If you could ask questions and give him tasks, how would you proof or disprove his omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient
I do not think a god needs to be Omni in the first place. Beyond that, Omnigod appears to be impossible based on logical paradoxes that are created by having all three of those attributes. Besides, something to be hyperaware, extremely powerful, and know nearly everything without having those maxed out and still falls well within what we mortals would call a god.

1. The God of the Bible
Oh, that changes a lot of my answers. I thought you were talking about a generic deity, much like the philosopher's diety. First off, besides Yahweh/Jesus declaring himself Omnigod, the Bible does paint a picture of a god that is far from any of those attributes. Beyond that, I would not follow or trust Yahweh/Jesus because of rules he has laid out in the Bible are antithetical to our modern understanding of morality and decency.

I know there many Gods so the Bible one is the goto one for me.
Then it would be best if you referred to him as Yahweh or Jesus to distinguish him from the other gods. Doing this will cut down on confusion and the question, "Which god do you mean?" The Christians do not own the word god, after all.
