The death of God in the modern era

The expression "God only knows what God means" can be taken as a way of saying that "Only God has complete or perfect knowledge of God.

" According to this concept He is something of "unique," and therefore it is impossible to describe God in terms which are applicable to other things.

This is that the concept of God refers to something or someone that necessarily exists. Who talk about the concept of God is Friedrich Nietzsche.

He was the German philosopher who became one of the most influential of all modern thinkers. The death of God didn't strike Nietzsche as an entirely good thing.

He's declaration was not an atheist broadside in today's context, but it was an attack on the link between reason and divinity. In

"Thus Spoke Zarathustra", a philosophical novel composed in four parts written and published in 1884, Nietzsche used the phrase to express his idea of the existence of God.

However, Death of God theology have used the phrase in a literal sense, meaning that the Christian God, who had existed but now God is dead and we have killed him.

God is supposed to be eternal, and thus cannot die. If God is a fiction created by human beings, he dies when there is no good reason to believe that God exists.

According to Nietzsche, the idea of God plays that role. So God was created to help people handle widespread and seemingly senseless suffering.

"God is dead" means that the idea of God can no longer provide values. So Nietzsche presents the Ubermensch as the creator of new values to banish nihilism.

Today, many non-religious people still believe in God, but we shouldn't be viewing this as a counterweight to the rising tide of secular millennials.

In several of books, I have explored how the modern age the Christianity did not disappear as much as it reappeared in many such disguised forms of "secular religion.

" Economic, intellectual and other radical changes of the modern age is another reason I offer for thinking that the existence of a god is very probable.
