“God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us?”
— Friedrich Nietzsche
We must wipe it off ourselves.
A spirit without a faith has 2 options:
- Succumb to Nihilism
- Will your own will
Nietzsche’s biggest fear in a world torn from God was that we would wallow in our ‘will for nothingness’.
Nietzsche saw this coming however, and he offered us a way out. The creation of our own values as self actualized individuals:
"For the game of creation, my brothers, a sacred yes is needed: the spirit now wills his own will."
