Immortal? No.
Omniscient? No.
Omnipotent? No.
Omnipresent? No.
outside space-time? No.

However, I think a lot better mileage can be had by showing
religious persons that all the things that the religions promise
can be acheived (where not total nonsense) only by science,
technology and sufficient human will and vision. If this was
shown a visceral enough level the old dogma and promise after
you die competitors should lose adherents by the church-full.
