''Anubis is lying,'' said Osiris

chessgenius: Suppose Horus is telling the truth; this means the other two are lying. But if Anubis is lying then Osiris's statement is true, which is a contradiction.

Therefore Horus is lying about not stealing the apple, so he is the thief.

I got the right answer and thought Ihad figured it out, but actually it is still a mystery to me even though my theory was right. It is not the same as some of you are saying. Very confusing.
