One Of These Names Is Not Like The Others

In a scene set in the far future in Ken MacLeod's novel The Sky Road, a character starts running through a list of "names of the One and names of prophets" in a moment of superstitious fear. The names he goes through include Allah, Buddha, Christ....and Quine.

"Allah" does not fit, because that one is not a man.

Fair enough. I guess I should have mentioned that "Yahweh" was also listed off in the passage.
