Some Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes on Christianity

Christianity was from the beginning, essentially and fundamentally, life’s nausea and disgust with life, merely concealed behind, masked by, dressed up as, faith in “another” or “better” life. — from Nietzsche’s The Birth of Tragedy

“Christianity remains to this day the greatest misfortune of humanity.” ? Friedrich Nietzsche

“The majority of men prefer delusion to truth. It soothes. It is easy to grasp. Above all, it fits more snugly than the truth into a universe of false appearances—of complex and irrational phenomena, defectively grasped.” ? Friedrich Nietzsche

“This eternal accusation against Christianity I shall write upon all walls, wherever walls are to be found–I have letters that even the blind will be able to see. . . .

Friedrich Nietzsche

There is respectable research to consider, e.g. van Lommel’s 2001 publication in the prestigious international medical journal, The Lancet (strong evidence of life after death in a heavenly realm).
