Is it morally wrong to try to become a god?

Not a poll because I want you to actually explain your viewpoints.

It's not IMO, which somewhat tinted by both my Mormon faith and thanatophobia which persists from my atheistic period, but it's still dependent on who is the would-be-deity, obviously.

    No.
    But it is insane and if you really believe you can do it you should seek treatment for severe psychosis.

    Depends on your beliefs
    It could be morally wrong, could not be

    What is 100% true is that you are a mind-fucked psychopath if you try to do it, and even if you succeed, where are your godly powers?

    i don't see anything against trying to become very powerful.
    i mean, people were already kings, emperors, etc
    this would just be the next step

    I don't think wishing to be a god is necessarily morally wrong, but like Zyzzyzus said, it's insane to think that you actually could theoretically become a god, at least one resembling the gods that modern religions (like Christianity) typically worship.

    Plus, the concept of someone becoming a god, if you think about it, could be very dangerous long term, even if they have initially benevolent intentions. When you're an immortal being that can never die, and have unlimited power, who knows what hell simple boredom could create.

    Not at all, in fact you could become like every god right now simply by killing yourself, and no longer existing.
