Evolutionary theory alone is not enough but...
Sociobiology and evolutionary theory are very useful in helping to define beauty, morality, religion, the arts, etc. but they do not see Godhood as the zenith of evolution, they reject teleology, which makes evolutionary theory incomplete.
It seems to me however that sociobiology and evolutionary theory could one day become like a new metaphysics, the mathematical biology and game-theory they use to define animal and human behavior could one day quantify Godhood, since Godhood is a supreme living object with extension, duration and number.
But of course definition, even supreme definition, only defines Godhood, which is not enough. Our purpose, the purpose of life, is to become Godhood through supreme evolution.
