I would ask if the universe was infinite, if it was infinite then it would have no begining and it would not need a creator - and an infinite number of Gods would exist within it.

The nature of the universe would be more useful than any specific moral or ethical question.

Or I would just try to punch out God because hey, who wouldn't.

It might not be infinite.

We can talk about that tomorrow, hopefully.

Of course, so maybe your question is the best.
Or do you have a better question about the nature of the universe? Or a different one, specifically.

I want the best questions possible.

In this case, your question is #3, definitely.

More to come, hopefully, feel free to add, anyone....

What if the universe were specifically created to be infinte, how would we know the difference?

I gotta go to sleep, but hopefully later on..........

I will try to frame this properly, If we treat the universe as the sum total of the dimensions that we exist in could it be infinite while at the same time occupying a place within higher dimensions.

Use this thought experiment, how many exclusively two dimensional squares can sit on top of eachother to make a cube?

How many four dimensional (let's not get into more, please) spacetime "universes" can fit next to eachother within a five dimensional shape.

These questions are either answerable with enough investigation or completely impossible.
