Depends what he is like. If he is like Zeus and actively smites non-believers, then I would probably do it out of fear. If he was like the God I image in the Christian tradition, then I probably would even tho he wouldn't require it out of ego like it is currently taught.

I don't think ( the christian God at the very least) requires or demands worship as you stated. but idk if its what's being taught today though. maybe u should elaborate on that.

What if the god has another god above him? Just like how ants and fish view us.

If that's what I was commanded to do directly from the source. I wouldn't be convinced if it remained hidden, silent, and contacted only a select few humans who then relayed to me on some telephone game nonsense through written word or spoken testimonial that I must submit.

For some reason, this reminded me of this crazy religious chick I knew in college. She was always pushing for me and my friends to either find God or get closer with him. One day she was talking about Heaven and Hell, and described them as this:

Heaven: You spend eternity worshiping God and serving him all the time.

Hell: People drink, do drugs, and have sex for eternity.

She was somehow angry and did not understand when I told her I would rather go to Hell than Heaven given the circumstances she laid out.

Its like for example someone you know wants you to commit treason against america. That doesn't mean america is making the rest of the world worship them. anyone can freely leave america to pledge their allegiance to other country if they want to. just as they could even back in the day.

But coming back to the country after doing so would be tricky to non allied and in good condition countries.

If you went to pakistan or most shady countries in the east and came back. you will be automatically be put on FBI watch and potential terror list and most definitely be getting a visit from the FBI questioning you on why u went to these countries.

Well that's definitely not the case. I can assure you.
You don't spend eternity worshipping God and serving him all the time.
You spend eternity enjoying his company and his creation. that means touring all the universes..etc

Hell is basically you are with sinners yet in complete isolation while in torment and punishment.
