A Nietzschean T-Shirt

what about this for a t-shirt design?

Front:
  "God is Dead" - Friedrich Nietzsche 1844-1900


Back:
  "Friedrich Nietzsche is dead" - God
'For man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment' - Hebrews 9:27


t-shirt design at foghorn (i tried to embed from there but it doesn't seem to work really at all)

idea from Sproul, R.C. The Consequences of Ideas: Understanding the Concepts that Shaped Our World. Wheaton: Crossway, 2000; required reading to get into Philosophy 2

I think others have got there first (eg. http://images.cafepress.com/product/17207391v1_240x240_Front.jpg), but the Hebrews quote is a good improvement!

yeah right.
never first with these things! just like when i thought about putting wheels on the bottom of shoes...

Sproul sourced it from some graffiti on a New York subway wall:
"God is dead." - Nietzsche
"Nietzsche is dead." - God

Nice Doug. When are you going into production?

I would be hesitant to put words in God's mouth.

In Doug's defense, Hebrews 9:27 is from 'God's mouth'. But, I get what you mean Elsie.

But Nietzsche is not dead. He is alive and kicking. We can't escape him just by putting him in the ground.

thanks for that corrective Byron. i didn't mean to generate so much response - it just came to me.

indeed, it saddens me when some (i'm thinking here of John Piper in his book don't waste your life) write him off as insane in the first place and/or blame his lunacy on his scathing critique of religion.

further - in which way in particular do you see Nietzsche as most potent today? and in a good or bad way?

Regardless of the debate of who said it, where it came from, or whether god said it, i think it is a great quote and a great t-shirt.
