Take away half of me, I become unnatural

But give me your honey, I'll become an animal

I may ruin your day

But I'll always be followed by a ray

... And my prefix is a god... although Google thinks he's Arthritis.


What am I?

You are:

RAIN

Take away half of me, I become unnatural

Removing half the letters yields "AI", or Artificial Intelligence.

But give me your honey, I'll become an animal

Add a B (bee, which makes honey), and get "BRAIN". Animals have brains.

I may ruin your day

Bad weather is associated with ruining a sunny day.

But I'll always be followed by a ray

Rain is followed by a rainbow.

... And my prefix is a god... although Google thinks he's Arthritis.

Begins with "RA", which can be an Egyptian deity. The top Google result for "RA" is Rheumatoid Arthritis.

  • $\begingroup$ The animal bit seems a bit of a stretch? Not doubting that it's the intended answer, but there's nothing about it that particularly suggests animal? $\endgroup$ – Mohirl May 19 at 13:12
  • $\begingroup$ @Mohirl, I was actually going for Reindeer, but his explanation works as well. $\endgroup$ – Joe Kerr May 19 at 14:08
