@ "Oh MolochAnd the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever
he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that
sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech;
he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall

from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto
Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.

, I offer you the Amulet"The complete Amulet can keep off all the things that make
people unhappy -- jealousy, bad temper, pride, disagreeableness,
greediness, selfishness, laziness. Evil spirits, people called
them when the Amulet was made. Don't you think it would be nice
to have it?"
"Very," said the children, quite without enthusiasm.
"And it can give you strength and courage."
"That's better," said Cyril.
"And virtue."
"I suppose it's nice to have that," said Jane, but not with much
interest.
"And it can give you your heart's desire."
"Now you're talking," said Robert.

That's what that means. Only.

I was gonna vote G for the explanation of why the high priest[...] For the two priests were talking exactly like priests,
piously, with learning and leisure, about the most aerial
enigmas of theology. The little Essex priest spoke the more
simply, with his round face turned to the strengthening stars;
the other talked with his head bowed, as if he were not even
worthy to look at them. But no more innocently clerical
conversation could have been heard in any white Italian cloister
or black Spanish cathedral. The first he heard was the tail of
one of Father Brown's sentences, which ended: "... what they
really meant in the Middle Ages by the heavens being
incorruptible." The taller priest nodded his bowed head and
said: "Ah, yes, these modern infidels appeal to their reason;
but who can look at those millions of worlds and not feel that
there may well be wonderful universes above us where reason is
utterly unreasonable?"

.

But E for the ThothThe Egyptian god of the moon and wisdom, Thoth is the patron
deity of scribes and of knowledge, including scientific,
medical and mathematical writing, and is said to have given
mankind the art of hieroglyphic writing. He is important as
a mediator and counsellor amongst the gods and is the scribe
of the Heliopolis Ennead pantheon. According to mythology,
he was born from the head of the god Seth. He may be
depicted in human form with the head of an ibis, wholly as an
ibis, or as a seated baboon sometimes with its torso covered
in feathers. His attributes include a crown which consists
of a crescent moon surmounted by a moon disc.
Thoth is generally regarded as a benign deity. He is also
scrupulously fair and is responsible not only for entering
in the record the souls who pass to afterlife, but of
adjudicating in the Hall of the Two Truths. The Pyramid
Texts reveal a violent side of his nature by which he
decapitates the adversaries of truth and wrenches out their
hearts.

. He's basically the best godGoddesses and Gods operate in ones, threesomes, or whole
pantheons of nine or more (see Religion). Most of them claim
to have made the world, and this is indeed a likely claim in
the case of threesomes or pantheons: Fantasyland does have
the air of having been made by a committee. But all Goddesses
and Gods, whether they say they made the world or not, have
very detailed short-term plans for it which they are determined
to carry out. Consequently they tend to push people into the
required actions by the use of coincidence or Prophecy, or just
by narrowing down your available choices of what to do next:
if a deity is pushing you, things will go miserably badly until
there is only one choice left to you.
