No, Marjane really doesn't know who she is, and she sees God and Marx in very much the same light (uh oh!). The following quote comes from the section of how she COMPARES the revolution with a bicycle.

"The Revolution is like a bicycle. When the wheels don't turn, it falls." This, she says, is the Revolution in Iran."
