Bow down, ye mortals

Listening to: Assorted Artists, Down With Dixon (A Tribute to Willie Dixon)

Having dodged the bullet thus far, I'll attribute my superhuman powers of steering wide of The Sick to the fact that I have been deified:
Indeed, you are 87% erudite, 87% sensual, 54% martial, and 62% saturnine.
Amun was a mysterious God indeed. His very name basically means "what is hidden", "what is not seen", "what cannot be seen", and though even his form was said to be “unknown”, he was depicted as a man with the head of a uraeus (cobra), or a man seated on a throne and holding in one hand the sceptre, and in the other the ankh.
All secrets aside, what we do know is that Amun was the Egyptian King of the Gods, not unlike his counterparts Zeus (Greek mythology) and Odin (Norse mythology). With his ruling might over the Gods, Amun soon became associated with the Pharaohs.

Being responsible for the creation of the world, it is not surprising that he was also the God of fertility, reproduction, and sexual power, and thus also the God of agriculture. With the combined powers of regeneration and royalty, Amun became linked to the sun and the great God Ra, becoming known as Amun-Ra, which pretty much consolidated his status as Supreme God.

In spite of Amun's political ascension, he also enjoyed popularity among the common people of Egypt, who came to call him the vizier of the poor, the protector of the weak, and an upholder of justice.

You can find out what deity you are by taking this test. Thanks to Skippy for pointing me there.

I'm 83% erudite, 83% sensual, 41% martial, and 37% saturnine... Amun right back at ya'. Unlike me, however, you're leaning towards Coyote with that saturnine score.

Hmm, I'm Amun too. Either there's something wrong with the test, or something VERRRY similar about us.

I got 75% erudite, 95% sensual, 58% martial & 62% saturnine.
