I'll not post any comments of my own but just curious where this goes.
I can't answer this question without knowing the nature of the god we are talking about.
Because what I might ask the god of the bible may very well be different from what I might
ask Zeus, or Aphrodite, or the FSM.
Also the pragmatist in me would like to know if there would be any repercussions for asking
my question, if the god in question is likely to throw me into some variant of hell if I ask
something that offends them then that would have an effect on what, if anything, I would ask.
Given no repercussions, if faced with the god of the bible, I might well ask something like
"how the hell did you screw up this badly, your a god for F' sake..."
But it really does depend on context, this question probably appears much simpler if you only believe
in, or consider, one god concept.
I am sorry if this answer is unsatisfactory, but I am trying not to be flippant and take it seriously.
And if I really had the option to ask a god a question then the nature of that god would definitely
impact the question I would ask.
