When Gods Decay

But, ironically, Nietzsche was wrong about God's death. Indeed, we killed a certain form of God (the mythic and naïve belief we carried over from primitive times), but we did not (perhaps cannot) kill God. God resurrects.

This study begins with the analysis of a type of divine appearance in the Old Testament, here called “human theophany”, in which God is described as having a concrete human form. The book includes a delineation of various types of anthropomorphism (such as God appearing in concrete human form, as opposed to only in dreams), analysis of the implications of human theophany for ancient Israelite, Canaanite and Near Eastern religion, and discussion of human theophany in relation to appearances of angels. It also includes discussion of philosophical approaches to anthropomorphism.

Fleeing from a brutal and oppressive regime in his home world, Té'Lal travels across two galaxies to reach Earth, where he seeks out a team at the JPL, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory outside Pasadena, California. His mission is simple: he wants refuge on Earth, and in exchange he will give them everything he knows, all the technology of his world, moreover, the Ancient scripts, long hidden away from his own people, scriptures that detail the existential truths about the Universe; how it was created, why it was created, and everyone's role in it. Mia Chen, who heads JPL's LISEA Project, to find evidence of intelligent life in the Universe, soon finds herself on the most outlandish thrill ride as she attempts to help the visitor who must prove his authenticity against all odds, including a military campaign to denounce his very existence, and world powers who do not want to change the status quo, despite the fact that what he offers would catalyst the world to the stars and the Awakening.

Friedrich Nietzsche radically confronted Western culture, morality, and social mores, until his death in 1900. Occupying a first-rank position as a thinker, his thought later inspired numerous movements that weave the tapestries of contemporary culture: existentialism, theology, nihilistic culture, Nazism, twentieth century film and art, atheism, ethical egoism, deconstruction, the hermeneutics of suspicion, and the postmodern age. Nietzsche’s incalculable sway on our culture persists to this day. Even his acerbic criticism of Christianity has affected the religion. But many people remain unaware of the pervasive attitudes Nietzsche disseminated, attitudes they echo. His stark prophecy that “God is dead, and we killed him” thrives in this accelerating secular age where postmodernists lionized him as a prophetic voice of a new era. Tweetable Nietzsche introduces and analyzes the worldview of Friedrich Nietzsche. Nietzsche’s tweets, 140 characters or less, provide readers a distilled essence of every major aspect of his worldview. Each tweet illustrates some aspect of his worldview contributing toward a full-orbed understanding of Nietzsche’s thought.
