Personally i believe we can if you take into both sides of the arguement as well it is a very possible outcome:
We created god and thus through generations of belief and natural genetics we can posses the power of achieving such things in due time. The mind is not a fully exploited or reached resource.
We our created in Gods image thus no matter how you describe it we're basically ides of the 'almighty' yet ideas evolve they don't stay the same entities forever and with this an idea may be able to figure out the extent of power 'God' acheives thus accessing it and becoming it.

From the moment of birth, we begin the battle against death -- against the inevitable. Statistics say that a newborn child can expect to live an average of 76 years. But averages may not be what they use to be.
In 1786, life expectancy was 24 years. A hundred years later it doubled to 48. Right now, it's 76.
"Over half the baby boomers here in America are going to see their hundredth birthday and beyond in excellent health," says Dr. Ronald Klatz of the American Academy of Anti-Aging. "We're looking at life spans for the baby boomers and the generation after the baby boomers of 120 to 150 years of age."
Today's quest for the fountain of youth is taking scientists from inside the genetic structure of cells to analyzing the role of stress and diet on life spans. Would-be immortals flock to anti-aging clinics and shell out as much as $20,000 a year for treatments that include hormone therapy, DNA analysis, even anti-aging cosmetic surgery. These experimental therapies offer no guarantees -- just the promise of prolonging life.
"Anti-aging medicine is not about stretching out the last years of life." says Dr. Klatz. "It's about stretching out the middle years of life... and actually compressing those last years few years of life so that diseases of aging happen very, very late in the life cycle, just before death, or don't happen at all."

Thats weird, I was just think about something like this on the way to work. I was thinking maybe gods evolved from where we evolved from, not that their super evolved humans, nor us coming back from the future or any thing. maybe a species that got a head start on us.
But i guess about us evolving into goods, i highly doubt it. Although if anything else evolves to a state like our current one we might be advanced enough to make the think we are gods. Thats probably close enough though.

What if every last human dies off next year, and some animals are still alive. even after all our technology and intelligence, would humans still be the rulers of the earth? no it would be the animals, or mabey a disease that kills all the living things on earth, and now the disease is the greatest thing on earth because it wiped out all life except itself. then the disease is the top of the food chain. I hope that does not happen! But if a disease kills off all life on earth underwater, on land , and in the sky, i wonder if it will spread to take on the entire universe?
