A BTT for the evening crew. Yeah, the thing about Nietzsche was really a little tragic. He was obviously disturbed by the conviction that his people had given up on God, and that as a consequence God did not actually exist. And what he grasped at was the notion that somehow Man would fill that terrible gulf. It was an illusion, IMHO, but he wasn't the first to cling to it. "And ye shall be as Gods," went the first of all lies.

But in simple point of fact God is not Tinkerbelle, and His existence is not a function of human vanity, but of fact. One can either recognize it, doubt it, or deny it, but none of that changes it.

To your last paragraph, really resonates with truth.
