I am curious to see what the members positions on higher lifeforms might be-I'm talking about purely theoretical entities that are nearly omniscient or omnipotent, perhaps non-corporeal, and very similar in certain ways to our primitive conceptions of "God"? The reason why I ask is that the truly adventurous mind, whether athiest of religious, cannot deny such possibilities, though we have no true evidence of such prescences, and if they did indeed exist I would imagine they would remain aloof to simple humanity. Evolution dictates that a species must continue to advance or perish to mightier beings. In millions or billions of years will humanity find itself slowly metamorphosising into this higher form of life, be it Neitzche's(spelling?) overman or a being lacking need of a physical body altogether. The problem inherent for an agnostic in admitting such a possibility is that, in an indirect manner, the existance of diety is being acknowledged. For someone who holds deep theological beliefs, especially Protestantism, in which most sects believe that human efforts cannot be used to attain heaven and therefore Godliness, this concept also presents a problem. Answering yes limits the uniqueness of God. Both sides, to maintain the pureness of their beliefs, must deny the possibility that somehow evolution might lead to god-like lifeforms.
