I call Christianity the one great curse, the one enormous and innermost perversion, the one great instinct of revenge for which no means are too venomous, too underhand, too underground and too petty - I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind.

-Nietzsche

Shows what he knew... typical of Neitzsche's usual overblown, neurotic nonsense masquerading as "philosophy". Sigh.

Also, your !OMGlookhowshockingand offensiveweare image? Childish.

Yes, it does rather show what he knows.

Also, if you had even the vaguest his work you'd be aware that Nietzsche himself was wary of philosophy. On account of having an understandable set of qualms concerning whether it was even possible. Or at least worthwhile.

He certainly made no effort at "masquerade". Instead, he wrote, with the consequences being far more valuable to the world than anything you'll ever hack up.

And I didn't find it particularly shocking or offensive. Only apt. Just fitting.
