Who Gave Us
The Sponge
Wipe Away
Entire Horizon?

--- Friedrich Nietzsche

Joe Citizen

"God is dead ... and we have killed him, you and I! We are all his murderers!'

"But how have we done it? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the sponge to wipe away the whole horizon? What did we do when we loosened this earth from its sun? Whither does it now move? Whither do we move? Away from all suns?

Do we not dash on unceasingly? Backwards, sideways, forwards, in all directions? Is there still an above and below? Do we not stray, as through infinite nothingness? Does not empty space breathe upon us? Has it not become colder? Does not night come on continually, darker and darker? Shall we not have to light lanterns in the morning? God is dead! And we have killed him! "

Of course, God beat us. He resurrected Himself. He destroyed death. For that we can all be very Thankful.

But, Nietzsche was speaking of what we have done to God's place in our culture. He wasn't speaking of the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If we do not resurrect our Judeo-Christian Heritage to it's rightful place within our culture, we will spin out of control, through the infinite nothingness of our minds, while the Islamofascists stick the sword in our throats.
