Hope? Meaning? Hope and meaning were exactly the things I was trying to salvage! When I wrote “God is dead” I wasn’t arguing against the existence of God. I was lamenting the loss of god, in the aftermath of the Enlightenment and the Darwinian revolution. I was merely observing what many of my contemporaries, especially in the academic world, assumed to be true. Europe was declining intellectually into a moral vacuum, empty of all values. My entire life’s work has been an effort to restore values and to challenge humans to raise themselves back up, to embrace their destiny with dignity and courage, and to overcome themselves.
