No, he isn't God, he just had sex with a Goddess (I'm actually surprised Urd hasn't made a move on him, or maybe she did, but I've forgotten), and has a child who is (a) God.
Anyways, great writing as usual. I managed to guess it was Racial hate-crimes the moment the list of victims were mentioned (having just WATCHED CSI, so I was in that frame of mind) and I'm glad to see that there's a more diverse 'main spotlight' sharing by the crew in this.
