Fact Check: Did Nietzsche Celebrate the "Death of God" on Good Friday, the Death of God?

Apr 19, 2019

Christians around the world celebrate the death of god on Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified on the cross.

German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche is also noted for his interest in the death of god, having famously declared that "god is dead."

It would seem that Nietzsche and Christians have little in common.  Nietzsche published books, such as The Antichrist, which critiques Christianity for being a "psychological self delusion" that instills a “slave-morality” in its followers.

Yet, every year on Good Friday, a marvelous phenomenon occurs.  A singularity occurs.  On this day, Christians and Nietzsche both celebrate the death of god.

So what did Nietzsche do on Good Friday?  Did Nietzsche really join Christians in celebrating the death of god?  Or did he boycott the day and celebrate (along with Christians) the rebirth of god?

We here at The Titled Glass, the world's premier fact checking authority, have dedicated our lives to researching this.  

We investigated the Nietzsche estate to learn how he celebrates Good Friday.  We've now determined that all possible claims of any nature are verifiably false.  

This is because Nietzsche is dead.  He died on August 25, 1900.  Thus, he does not celebrate anything on Good Friday.

We are sorry to break the news of his passing to you.  To many, Nietzsche was a god of philosophy, just as Jesus was a god of Christians.  We broke this news to inform you that god is dead.  All is broken now.  And our Titled Glass has completely shattered into a glass mirror reflecting itself in pieces.  Who are we?  Where do we go from here?  Respect to the living and dead.  Respect to our ancestors and one day we will be the ancestors.  Each day is precious.  May today be a great day.  May today be a Great Friday.  We are the dead.
