Was Nietzsche an agnostic, a theist, an atheist, or none of the above?
The answer really doesn't matter, but I was curious.
It seems the main argument most people who call him an atheist use is his quote "God is dead." However, from my understanding, he was not saying that he did not believe in God, but that he thought the Christian belief in God was broken beyond repair. Does disbelief in the morals of Christianity make him an atheist?
He often seems to be promoting the forming of new beliefs and of new gods - something I have never seen atheists promote. If one believes that the individual is a creator (of values/morals for themselves), what does that make them?

For homework I have to read "The Delicate Prey" by Bowles, "Entropy" by Pynchon and "The Lottery in Babylon" by Borges. I'm about to go on a walk and read one of these by the lake, which should I read first? I haven't read any of the authors before, college pleb here, so give me a break but I've heard wonderful things about both Pynchon and Borges, so I'm leaning towards one of those two. But WHICH?!
