The great atheist philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote about what the death of God would entail for human meaning, objective moral value and purpose. William Lane Craig reads an extract about the death of God, as expressed by Nietzsche’s fictional mad man, to illustrate how the question of God’s existence makes a profound difference to our lives.
Nietzsche’s mad man says:
“We have killed Him. You and I, all of us are His murderers. (beginning at :42)
“God is dead, and we have killed Him. How shall we, the murderers of all murderers, comfort ourselves? (beginning at 1:30)
