Friedrich Nietzsche died on August 25 in 1900. Nietzsche is perhaps best known for his declaration that “God is dead”. The statement is commonly interpreted as a declaration of atheism, but it as much a comment on what Nietzsche perceived as the nihilism of the culture of the time. In honor of Nietzsche, our themes for the month of August will be atheism and meaning. For those of us that are atheists, how do we find meaning in the world, in spite of, or perhaps because of our atheism?
