We may be getting closer to answering WWGHA

A team of Stanford engineers has invented genetic transistors, completing a simple computer within living cells.

The startling achievement, unveiled in Friday's issue of the journal Science, presages the day when "living computers" inside the human body could screen for cancer, detect toxic chemicals or even turn cell reproduction on and off.

Neat stuff.
Actually it doesn't. One could conceivably be all-powerful but not exceptionally intelligent.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?
We choose our own gods.

On the contrary.  If it works, they'll claim that their prayers really did heal amputees.

Or they will simply claim that god gave the scientists the knowledge and ability to do what they do.  They always work it out so god gets the credit, but never the blame.  Such a deal.

He healed my toe nail that got ripped off in Judo. It took about a year. Praise the Lord!  :blank:
