    It doesn't "really" mean anything. It's a phrase in a given context. You translate it to your thoughts and fuse it with your previous notions to produce an understanding of the phrase. Your understanding will differ from others', even those who claim they have come to the same conclusion as you.

    The whole phrase is "god is dead, and we killed him", as in we the humanity, meaning that for better or worse we've done away with an established worldview based on Christian theology and now must find new meanings to this confusing existence.
    Or something like that, idk

      This is how I understood it too. I didn't even read the whole book to get his meaning. Anyone who takes it literally either haven't heard of Nietzsche or too lazy to research.

    What Nietzsche meant was "frick Christians I am the real Jesus Christ but if I can't be him then at least I will be his prophet."

    Nobody truly believes in Christ anymore, what is left is a shallow system of morals that are just mental slavery without its divine context.
    God is dead, we can no longer rely on him and must forge our own destinies.

      Essentially this, but the reasoning for it is simply the analysis of multiple mythologies at the same time, combined with the advancing technology yielded by materialistic science.

      To hold the Quran, the Bible, the Vedas, the Talmud, the Torah, the Norse Myths, The Egyptian Book of the Dead, all in one hand on a stack to see them all at the same time .... They all have lovely covers. Cool fonts. They're all thick books with mysterious ideas and tons of rules and rituals. And on top of that stack, you have Harry Potter. Just sitting there smiling wickedly. "I can do magic too! Just like Jesus hahah. Jesus and I really aren't so different, huh?" says Harry in a mocking voice.

      The darkest truth is that this is exactly what's going on here. They can't all be true. They're just books. They're just books. BOOKS. LIKE FICTION.

      Am I supposed to take one of the books from that stack and adhere to it as if it was lethally true, and beyond question? Like, do I just dig out ...the Bible from between the Talmud and Book of the Dead, and claim "oh yeah, this one is the one! yep, this is the one that REALLY speaks for god this time!"

      But then you keep scrolling past the list of books on your kindle, and wonder if "The God Delusion" would be fun to read too. Or just any old book from a bygone age. You scroll, and those holy books disappear from view on your electronic kindle or computer screen, and you see all the other books that exist, the book of Mormon, Moby Dick, The Once and Future King, His Dark Materials, and so many more, more and more books, so many books, an entire library of books on a computer, and with a simple click, you could be on Wikipedia reading about any religion, any scientific fact, any philosophical concept, or just watching the terrifying propaganda news, or any other thing meant to waste your time and get you to spend money or join some fad.

      Those holy books look so small. So insignificant. So weak. So faded. But then you think .... "What if there really is divine wisdom in there?"

      So you open up the oldest Bible in the library, caked with dust... and you begin to read.

      The first page, just page one, and the entire universal creation story is finished. That's it. Done. Then one more page. Just a frickton of stuff happens so quickly. And another page .... and it's like, where is the detail? This is not written skillfully. Creation shouldn't be just ONE tiny page with no real details or explanations. And you keep reading, and you just feel, "this really isn't that great."

      You become bored. Bored. Bored of the "Word of God." So boring. Is that normal? To be bored to the point where trying to continue reading the Bible just feels like a huge waste? Oh, maybe it's the devil tempting you to do something fun...? Yeah maybe. Or maybe it's because it actually isn't divine, isn't well written, isn't clever or wise, and doesn't actually contain vivid truth and benevolence. God is dead.

      Feminists are hold over catholics

      Feminist transubstantiation:
      "Women are not objects!"
      This linguistic stupidity is taking words as gospel ultimate reality against the face of all values in all objective reality. There is no more impressions. The believer is unimpressionable. Nietzsche saw the monopoly become a franchise of bootleg busts

    God died of laughter from seeing Nietzsche and other atheist revolutionists trying to make nihilism cool and fun.

    It means science has shrunk the gaps to a point where it’s no longer necessary to believe in or worship god.

    this isn't a proclamation of the death of God literally, but of faith
    the Enlightenment and everything that followed made it impossible to believe in God as people once did
    if we are to find our way back to God now, our journey to true faith will look nothing like it once did (being born into it is no longer a sufficient cause for people capable of critical thought and doubt, but that is something to be overcome, not "the final state" as modern atheists would have it)
