    to start multiple cults, teach them that those who don't believe are evil, and set them against eachother in holy war?

    Skillwise, would you be able to "...teach them that those who don't believe are evil,..." with your tongue firmly embedded in your cheek?

    An early indicator might be the answer to this question: how good a liar are you? Poker player?

    Lie? I resent the accusation.

    The proper term, my dear, is sophistry.

    Come now, child, surely your forked tongue is capable of sharper lashings than that. I'm disappointed in you; soon I shall need to find a new dungeon master to inflict such lovely verbal abuse as you one provided.


    Now, as to the original question: would it be wrong?

    Wrong, schmong...

    Did you hear the one about the masochist who begs "hit me, beat me, whip me..."

    And the sadist who answers...."Noooooo..."

    That certainly rules out the possibility of you being successful, and eliminates the need for us to worry about the morality of your experiment.

    I actually think the OP is talking about "god". That is in effect exactly what happened.
