In the name of a god that Nietzsche announced dead

A friend has stopped me this morning to ask me about my ‘god is dead’ status on Facebook. Thank goodness there is Nietzsche to blame to such a bold statement. However, it doesn’t stop here for me .it doesn’t matter if God is dead or alive. I have been asking myself if God exists. And if he does what kind of God is he.

Watching Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere around this world. God in the name of his preachers in Egypt, Syria, Saudia,…., how can he exist .how can people follow a God that according to them they can kill anyone who doesn’t follow their lead. How can God be such a racist? Such narrow-minded, such evil.

In Syria, people are killed every day under the name of God. In Afghanistan. All over.

Everyone justifies his brutality under the order of that God.

How can God be there and watch? How can God accept himself to be sabotaged by all these evil creatures? How can God create such evilness?

If he exists, and he is watching his creation…is he in a state of wisdom or a state of revenge?

  2. Without commenting yet on the existence of God, or a god, I will say your curiosity in this respect is one perceived by sages throughout history. I think one of the best summaries is this, from a Roman philosopher, before the time of JC and the 12 sycophants…

    “The gods can either take away evil from the world and will not, or, being willing to do so cannot; or they neither can nor will, or lastly, they are both able and willing. If they have the will to remove evil and cannot, then they are not omnipotent. If they can, but will not, then they are not benevolent. If they are neither able nor willing, then they are neither omnipotent nor benevolent. Lastly, if they are both able and willing to annihilate evil, how does it exist?” — Epicurus — Aphorisms, c. 300 B.C.

    Personally, I think a god is an unnecessary assumption on the part of humans, one for which there is no evidence in reality. But, that’s me; others are welcome to their beliefs. I only wish so much of the world didn’t share the same delusional inference. Such mental and moral weakness, to refuse responsibility for one’s own reality, seems to be the root cause of most of our troubles and conflict in this world.

    Excellent post, thought provoking, and, as always, brilliantly on the mark….
