The Fermi paradox concerns the possible existence of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations. The Kardashev scale envisages advanced civilizations that may control and consume energy up to a galactic scale. Postulated extensions of the scale consider advanced entities that are powerful enough to create new universes. In an eternal existence of multiple universes, the emergence of such an entity may be inevitable. Such an advanced entity could perhaps be of sufficient greatness to be God. The scientific and theological feasibility of this idea of God is discussed. A possible advantage of viewing God in this way is that the supernatural might be dispensed with. However, from the viewpoint of religious practice, it is not clear whether such a God would be acceptable to major religions.
The mode of inheritance and evolutionary consequences of heritable information associated with general causal cycles is discussed. It is suggested that the importance of such information may have been underestimated particularly as a cause of morphological differences between species. The problem of obtaining evidence for these speculations is considered.
