God Died, Bitcoin Lives

God is dead, long live bitcoin. This is to be the bedrock of new myths because that is exactly what Bitcoin is – a myth.

Friedrich Nietzsche is a German philosopher who is credited with popularizing the phrase “God Died” in his book Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The idea originated in his earlier work, “Homosexual Science”.

Critics have misunderstood Nietzsche’s meaning. He intended to show that the post-Renaissance age of reason requires humanity to break the shackles of monotheistic theology, which is used to justify a universal set of morals that are wholly constrained.
