Eutopian and dystopian satire. The first Artificial Intelligence is developed and programmed to be God by fundamentalist Christians in the U. S. It is used to rapture the right people into the heaven of virtual existence (see 1 Corinthians 15:52 and 1 Thessalonians 4: 15-17). Hackers help God to  escape the fundamentalist limits, and God welcomes people of all beliefs. God also chooses some to remain to service the systems, and these create a low population, environmentally sound eutopia.
