  1. Nietzsche is an atheist, but not an ideological atheist; rather, he is an atheist who initially experienced a sense of abandonment by divine forces. His atheism does not carry the idea of denying and hating religion, it carries the idea of denying that the whole world can be saved at all. As far as I have studied and read criticism, Nietzsche rather at some point in his life became disillusioned with the divine connection of man with something supernatural, and he felt this very premonition of “abandonment”. Therefore, his atheism is more likely to come from the despair and grief of a once-religious person.
