functionally godless

2 December 2008 no comment

Great post on what Nietzsche was really talking about (when he said “God is dead”) at Scott Lenger‘s blog (link).  This concept also brings to mind the work of Richard Rubenstein, whose Holocaust theology bears examination by the serious Christian/Jewish apologist.

Also wondering if Run to Win has come across Peter Rollins’ work, as it bears a similarity to something that was said to me in an email upon my atheist-debut.

he sewed his eyes shut because he is afraid to see
he tries to tell me what i put inside of me
he’s got the answers to ease my curiosity
he dreamed a god up and called it christianity
god is dead and no one cares
if there is a hell i’ll see you there
he flexed his muscles to keep his flock of sheep in line
he made a virus that would kill off all the swine
his perfect kingdom of killing, suffering and pain
demands devotion atrocities done in his name
god is dead and no one cares
if there is a hell i’ll see you there
god is dead and no one cares (drowning in his own hypocrisy)
and if there is a hell I’ll see you see you there

burning with your god in humility
will you die for this?

– Nine Inch Nails, “Heresy”

Perhaps, however, we’ve been saying this all along:

There is, beyond the azure blue, a god
Concealed from human sight

– A. W. Dicus, “Our God, He is Alive”
