Was it god or the devil? Your take

It was god himself who at the end of his day’s work lay down as a serpent under the tree of knowledge: Thus he rested from being god.. He had made everything too beautiful. The devil is merely god’s idleness on that seventh day.

F. Nietzsche

    Interesting view


  2. Interesting. God seems at least fond of working with this “devil” even if he isn’t it. It would make Revelation 20 curious, that God had to release himself to corrupt even more people.

      Club, I ask when god gave the instruction to Adam and Eve was someone else eavesdropping and did god see this and ignore? If the genesis story were true, I would be with Nietzsche on this one.


  3. Are you focusing on Nietzsche right now? I read 3 or 4 of his books back to back and think I fell into a slight depression. I love his work, but some of it is just downright dark. An interesting character, to say the least. What is this quote from?

      This is from Ecce Homo: How one become what one is, which is his autobiography in his own words, a very interesting read I must say.
      I want to read as many of his works as I can find. I like the guy.


      • Agree, he’s interesting. The only works I’ve read are Thus Spoke Zarathustra, The Antichrist, and The Will to Power. I think. Like I said, he kind of depressed me after a while. 🙂

        Let me know how it goes. If you think it’s worth the read, I’ll pick a copy up!
