Top 10 Reasons Why It's Easier to Think That God is Actually Dead

Just like my list of reasons to think that God's impotent, this list is NOT an attack on God. It's just an idea of why he never reveals himself to us or saves us from certain danger.

Most of us may be familiar with the quote "God is Dead" which was said by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. What he meant by that is that the Age of Enlightment had "killed" the possibility in a belief in any god having ever existed.

Most of you are probably not familiar with the concept of Theothanatology (the belief that God may have literally died). I personally think it's one of the simplest and most logical philosophies because it makes sense how God never takes action in helping the world considering how he probably died during the beginning of creation anyway.

The Top Ten

1 It Actually Makes the Most Sense

God's impotence seems a bit plausible but God being dead actually seems the most plausible because it would at least explain why he never reveals himself to us or that there's always tragedies going on in the world. - DarkMatter1997

2 It Would Explain Why There's Still Evil in the World

Mainly because God's dead and he'll never do anything about it ever. - DarkMatter1997

3 We Would At Least Know That Heaven Does Exist

God lives in heaven but died in heaven. At least heaven didn't die with him. - DarkMatter1997

4 We Would At Least Know That God is Already Dead So We Don't Have to Try to Kill Him All the Time

Hear that Glen Benton of Deicide? God's already dead so give it a rest already. - DarkMatter1997

5 It Would At Least Explain Why He Doesn't Introduce Himself to Us

Enough said. - DarkMatter1997

6 It Would At Least Have Us Mourn for God

I mean, it would at least be a reason for all the theists to love God in a way because it's not like he could've helped his own death. - DarkMatter1997

7 We Would At Least Know That He's Not Actually Out to Get Us

Mainly because he's been dead for eternity now. - DarkMatter1997

8 We Would At Least Know That He Didn't Actually Come to Earth and Destroyed It a Few Times

Sodom and Gomorrah and the flooding of the earth are most likely fictional stories. They had to be written by man considering how God wasn't alive at the time. - DarkMatter1997

9 We Would At Least Know He's Not Responsible For All the Evil and Suffering Going on In the World

The evil is most likely caused by us, not some dead deity. - DarkMatter1997

10 We Would At Least Know That He Gave Us Some Power

What do I mean by this? Well I have a theory that karma does in fact exist and that God created it right before he died. Karma does happen to people, it just takes a while for it to take affect (mainly because God isn't there).

I also believe that he did give living beings souls so that we can go to heaven after we die. - DarkMatter1997
