Re: I must comment on this . . .
The original post in this thread was quoting what he said in another thread. In that thread, he didn't twist Nietzsche writings (It was a direct quote...), nor would it have further lead people to think Nietzsche was all about anti-god. And if it did, then it'd be those people's fault for being stupid and making stupid assumptions.
Like, it'd be stupid to assume someone was "all about" something based on one quote. It's also pretty stupid to get on some dude's case based on the assumption that people would make stupid assumptions about Nietzsche based on a single quote...
Also, in the original thread, he expressed no personal anti-religious sentiments. And in this thread, he didn't use the quote to do so either.
And what the philosopher's words have been used for in the past has no relevance what-so-ever. If anything, you should be bitching about Nietzsche's poor choice of wording. He should have just said exactly what he meant if he was trying to get across a particular philosophical point. 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.
tl;dr= Quit being such a fag, old man.
Edit: Nerox isn't the smartest dude ever or anything, to put it nicely, though. So if you're going to rag on him for that then cool.
