The point of the above comment is how close to a
singularity of sorts are we already at when viewed
from the perspective of the ancients? If we can
approach or surpass the capabilities of a god
from their viewpoint then have we not transcended?
To remove excess emotional baggage associated
the Christian god, substitute the Greek, Norse,
or other pantheon of your choice and do a similar
checklist of god vs. 21st century civilization.
(whose name comes from the hebrew 'dan' = judge
and 'el' = god. It is usually translated as
'God is my judge', but I prefer to render it as
'Judger of gods')
