The Mad Man and the Old God.
An Essay on Friedrich Nietzsche’s Apocalypse of Human Existence (Revised Version)
By Edmund Weber
The sun was shining at the marketplace when a mad man was looking with a lamp for God. The astonished people scornfully told him God may be sick or he may be travelling. But the mad man answered:
Where has he gone? He called, I will tell you” We have killed him, – you and me! We all are his murderers! … God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.
Do we still hear nothing of the noise of the grave-diggers who are burying God?
