    “God is dead. God remains dead, and we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become Gods simply to appear worthy of it?” (2).

    Nietzsche and “God is Dead” 1. Introduction “God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.” (The Gay Science 120) When first being introduced to Nietzsche, a person may infer that his idea, the “death of God,” is literal. The phrase does not mean there was an actual God who existed at one point and then died in a literal sense. When Nietzsche said this, he was implying that God died in modern society, the values of religion lost their dominance, and religion no longer fulfills the role

    People view the statement “God is dead” as an aesthetic statement. They do not journey into the underlying or more obvious meanings of the quote. Even though Fredrick Nietzsche may have been an atheist, I do not believe he meant “God is dead” in a literal or aesthetic way. Nietzsche was pointing out that in society the cultural expansion of other religions and introduction of nihilism have changed Western society morally. Americans, specifically, have ventured away from just Christianity and into

    The Question: State your understanding of the philosophy of F. Nietzsche. What does he mean by saying "God is Dead"?

    The Reports of God's Death Are a Bit Premature Arguing the death of God is a debate that will last until eternity. Regardless of exploration or religious zeal there are far too many human viewpoints leaning towards the idea of and the strong need for faith. Believing in God for some is as natural as walking upright and it would seem that through such unquestionable faith God would somehow still be alive.

    A Change in Thought

    • 2 Pages

    In Nietzsche’s book, The Gay Science, he declares that god is dead at the beginning of section 3 in aphorism 108. The meaning of this statement, in the context of providing a solid possible interpretation of Nietzsche’s argument, is that god, not as a being, but as an idea is dead. To provide a conception of god as an idea, I believe it to mean an idea of morality, living life a certain way according to rules, justifying existence through a higher being, or seeing nature as a guided aspect of life
