How could it be thought of as a great idea if the potential means the end of us as a species?
I also don't understand what you mean when you say "give God like qualities to the Human Race"...
I did no such thing.
Why would someone who is smart enough to create this sort of AI, be stupid enough to create this sort of AI?
What surroundings & environment do you know of that consists of the idea to destroy Mankind?

A.I. , singularity i think is a given and the dates 2029-45 is probably quite accurate . However i do not think it will be the end of humanity . It would take a case of immense stupid on mankind's behalf to allow computers to control all aspects of the things that would enable them to function .They would have to control nearly every aspect of the power generation chain for instance . Now it is possible that we could in the future rely on robots to manage all aspects of power generation . That would require many thousands of worker robots all plumbed in to the singularity . They themselves all require food (electricity at this stage ) . Take down their power source and it all dies very quickly . All we have to do is control the power generation , just a few MANUAL switches to turn the grid off .
People turn the power off every day worldwide by accident . The grids of any country are not that robust . One decent thunderstorm and bye bye skynet .
