Saying "God is dead" when you mean "recent developments in modern science and the increasing secularization of European society [during Nietzsche's time] had effectively 'killed' the Christian God, who had served as the basis for meaning and value in the West for more than a thousand years, lololololol" is pretty stupid and just asking for misinterpretations.
People probably would not have cared about Nietzsche without his use of hyperbole. Don't ask me for the source because I am not sure, but I think it may be from a documentary called Human, All Too Human
"Nature loves to be hidden."
