No it isn't. God is the adult equivalent of the Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus.
Anyone who has this mental crutch in their lives should liberate themselves
of their dependency - sooner than later. One of the societal adjustments
facing cryonics revivees of the future will be to find that the vast
organised religions of today have dramatically withered. Religions (and
gods) will be no more relevant than the Greco-Roman myths. If any
super-beings are ever discovered in this universe then they will be an alien
phenonemon worthy of scientific study, no more no less. The Singularity is a
technology event which, if it occurs, will accelerate anti-aging medicine
and the realisation of cryonicists hopes for immortality.
