A TV sports report about a local baseball team's failure to win in the play-offs upstate brought to mind the writings of Nietzsche. One of the local boys said, "We wanted to win, but I guess the good Lord had other plans." Another said much the same thing, adding that it just wasn't "God's" will. A light went off in my head. Nietzsche said Christianity was the worst affliction to befall mankind in our entire history on earth. He wrote of the Superman, as much a Taoist Master as a Zoroastrian Godman. Before he apologized for saying it, Ted Turner said that Christianity was for losers. It was a Nietzschean statement. The baseball players are using "God" as a crutch. They were not up to the task, so they blame their deity for losing. Instead of playing harder, they fall back on God's having moved in "His" "mysterious ways." These people are pathetic cripples. That was Nietzsche's principal point.
The Superman does not need "God." If the Superman fails at a task, he takes responsibility for it. If he is "good," it is not because he is trying to please some supernatural entity, some metaphysical mumbo jumbo; it is because he is a moral person who has no need of "God." The Superman is ironically more like a god than anyone who worships "God."
