For example, think of our species. We have members that embrace trans-humanism and tribes that appease their great-grands with offerings. The two are different and very unlikely to be related, thus where I draw the line for my question.
In a futuristic scenario, when our species have evolved by merging with our AI's and nanotechnology, there's a teenager, whose great-great-great grandfather has just been promoted as a godling.
They are related by blood. The teenager struggling with her college and scholarship entrance exams, praying to her great-great-great grandfather, now a moon-sized mega construct efficiently managing his own business that has grown to an entire polity composing his entire body.
Is there such a race, from any relevant text, practicing such a religion?
