one of the verification questions is wrong

one of the verification questions is wrong: 1+6x2 = 13, not 14 (if one uses the basic conventions of arithmetics as teached in primary school correctly).

well, so maybe the author did read it from left to right, not knowing the conventions, so let me "correct" it:
(1+6)*2 = 14
maybe the author can clarify.. :)
in a universe like ours, to beings like us, the idea of a god dying can be quite liberating

I was delighted that I had remembered the order of operations.
