Da Vinci died...did the Mona Lisa blink out of existence?

Because "God is Dead" is not meant to be taken literally. You must have critical thinking skills to interpret the statement, which creates meaning.

Do you need someone to walk beside you reminding you "left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot" all day?

Gee, we don't know! That's just too hard for us to figure out!

Following your logic, your house should disappear when you die.

God, you prick, you interpret me even worse than that Hitler douchebag did.

Are you saying God is pregnant and the universe is the dependent fetus? And does this mean we're going start seeing people campaigning to grant personhood status to universes?

If you have a child (please don't) and you and the other parent die, does the child die? I didn't think so.

"If God is dead, how come the universe hasn't died with Him?"

Easy (check one):

[ ] Your 'God' (the 'First Cause') died, but his creator, the Zero Cause still exists (natch).

[ ] Your 'God' never existed in the first place. The Big Bang, and all that jazz.

Choose wisely.

I suppose I can expect my sketchpad to disspear when I die, then.

It`s all a moot point anyway because God never existed.

And just to make sure we have all bases covered:

[ ] God’s continued existence is not required for the universe’s continued existence.

In order to die, first you must exist, so the answer is no.

"He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
When the New York Times said God is dead
And the war's begun"

That WAS the headline when America entered WW2. And know what?

No-one freaked about that then. More evidence that American Fundies will explode over things people (real Americans) accepted over 70 fuckin years ago!

@N. De Plume

I thought the first point, about the zero cause, essentially covered that?
