“God is dead.”
This is what Friedrich Nietzsche wrote in his Aphorism 125 of the “The Gay Science,” published in 1882. The consequences are a theology without God and believers without God.
All this applies to Western philosophy — at least this is what I thought when I was young. And the work by Karl Löwith, “From Hegel To Nietzsche,” convinced me that I was right. I thought that God’s Death was a typically Western problem.
But now, after the umpteenth terrorist attack against civilians in Turkey I have started to think that also Allah died. And that he remains dead. And that they have killed Him.
