I've decided both terms of The Alphabet vs. the Goddess are wrong. It's not "the alphabet" because language includes numerals as well as letters, and invidious distinctions either way are mistaken. Calling nature a goddess genders things excessively, leaves out the "masculine" element of red-in-tooth-and-claw competition, and leads to the ugly pattern of worshiping Woman but not particularly liking women, which might be called the Dick Syndrome (after Philip K., of course). So, language vs. nature, and I worship language because it is the only thing that can protect us from nature.
