The definition of God

a superhuman being or spirit worshipped as having power over nature or human fortunes

I don't believe any of the Gods of the present or past are real in any way shape or form. However, when the singularity happens, theoretically speaking, isn't this essentially the birth of a God, given that it will be the creation of a superhuman being?

    $\begingroup$ I strongly recommend reading Valis (Dick) and Invisible Planets (Rajaniemi). They both get into this idea in some detail, with different takes. (Dick is more philosophical; Rajaniemi is a mathematical physicist by training. Both are important.) You also might want to look at what is meant by "God's Algorithm" in the rigorous, and often whimsical, field of recreational math. $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Apr 24 '18 at 19:14

infinite being, eternal, supernatural and existing by itself, necessary cause and ultimate end of all that exists

As the Portuguese dictionary says, the problem of calling God is the connection with spirituality, it is even strange to call a machine of God.

Now, we can put Google as an example. They know what you do, where you are, what you like and what you do not want anyone to know, and he's everywhere listening to you. The only way to not be under Google's vision is to stop using a cell phone, computer and living a boring life so carefully that you would have to have to not be watched.

It's funny the relationship. According to the Bible (I am an atheist), the man departed from God in Babylon (cities).

But can we call Google God? If Google does not have a backup of its core scattered through space and other planets, I think the human can still destroy the world and bring Google together. But following rational ideology, he is closer to being God than anything on earth, including us.
