in the culture was built into it. So where are we today when It comes to be a true believer of God, when technology and science has skewed our views of religion. How have our computers and electricity changed our view of God you ask? Well we rely on thesesimple things like information on the internet to run our days. We rely on our electricity to keep us warm. Well in the ancient times people would search for answers to these essentials, as information and warmth, in God. For instance, people would worship God for rain and sunshine. However, today we no longer live our lives reliant on God. This is what Fredrich Nietzsche meant by God is Dead. We have killedhim in our modern ways of living. Nietzsche claims that the people that truly believe in God are just fooling themselves. Since the people today indulge in modern technology to run their daily lives, they do not truly believe in God. God doesn’t run their life and they don’t rely on God to get where they need to be in life. So therefore, God isDead. Nietzsche believes that the people who believe in God are too foolish to find meaning in their ownlife.
Layer, EmilyPhil 130112/04/2019I see where Nietzsche is coming from when he says that God is Dead. The meaning of God has been changed by Christianity and religion is no longer practiced as it once did many, many years ago. What we learn and read about God today, has been changed from whom he once was. Time has changed, religion has changed, and people have adapted to live in the changing times. Yes, people drive their cars to church, make their breakfast on a stove and not with the natural elements. However, that doesn’t mean people don’t truly believe in God, that there is a higher being. That there is a point in life, a higher calling, and we must life in in a moral way. People still need God, not just for meaning but for hope.
