I would do a search and replace on the notion of the code god. The code god has the obvious problem that gods are infallible, or at least not mortal, and they are susceptible to hubris. Hubris in software can be (paradoxically) quite deadly. More to the point, in good software the code is not all that important. The architecture is what matters. So I would replace "code god" with "architect."

Add a quarter cup of curiosity and two table spoons of humor and you now have the recipe.
