I'd prefer an adaptation of The City and the Stars to Childhood's End -- if only because I think the notion of a species achieving transcendence to godhead by evolution is basically a fantasy concept.

I think there's a huge difference between evolution whether it's biological or artificial, and the lofty potential that we can gauge based on past change leading to accelerated change and what people like to frame in theological references, and wholly inadequate metaphors. In other words, such stuff might be possible, even likely but our definitions fail us.
