    He said that after WWII, which came on the heels of WWI, when people thought that either there was no God or God forgot about us. So he wasn't talking about what he believed, like he was an atheist, but what he thought society was thinking.

    And the Jews of course loved that, because the world is predominately Christian, and so they printed it in their famous publications, like the front cover of Time magazine.

    Yes, Revelations is a chapter in the Bible about what the world would look like if God was dead. Since we've already witnessed much of that here, now in life there's credence to the claim God is dead. But remember a madman said it. For a truly sane person can't survive in a Godless world. Yet, here we are, surviving. Therefore either we are all mad, or there is no God. Since we can prove some of us are sane , then God must be dead.

    No, of course not, because God hasn't obligingly dropped dead. He can't.

    With a deceased deity, there is no longer any supreme, legitimate, moral authority, so anything becomes acceptable.

    That The Enlightenment had somehow eliminated the need for God. This wasn't a good thing as Judeo/Christian influenced Western values would fail and the result would be millions of deaths.

    As we seen happen.
