GOD is no more than an Idea, as long as you believe the idea is real it will forever exist for you, and the moment you stop believing in that Idea is the moment it is no longer real for you, to bring about a new IDEA is to give it life, and to cast it aside and abandon it, is to put it to death: So again GOD is an IDEA and when he real for you he is Alive and can exist but only for you, When he is Dead he is not dead to the world only Dead in the mind of the one who longer believes in the IDEA of GOD

"Where has God gone?" he cried. "I shall tell you. We have killed him - you and I. We are his murderers. But how have we done this? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the sponge to wipe away the entire horizon? What did we do when we unchained the earth from its sun? Whither is it moving now? Whither are we moving now? Away from all suns? Are we not perpetually falling? Backward, sideward, forward, in all directions? Is there any up or down left? Are we not straying as through an infinite nothing? Do we not feel the breath of empty space? Has it not become colder? Is it not more and more night coming on all the time? Must not lanterns be lit in the morning? Do we not hear anything yet of the noise of the gravediggers who are burying God? Do we not smell anything yet of God's decomposition? Gods too decompose. God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we, murderers of all murderers, console ourselves? That which was the holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet possessed has bled to death under our knives. Who will wipe this blood off us? With what water could we purify ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we need to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we not ourselves become gods simply to be worthy of it? There has never been a greater deed; and whosoever shall be born after us - for the sake of this deed he shall be part of a higher history than all history hitherto."

Friedrich Nietzsche

Truly there is no greater person than somebody who can kill gods but not become one himself.

But look at it in the this perspective if a man believes in true free will not the nonsense that the book of Genesis teaches, Let us remove GOD from the equation seeing how he is already absent, We alone determine our actions, decision, and from day to day decide if we are going to be a person of true virtue by our own standards, if this is the case than are we not our own GODS self policing our actions because if so than we no longer have to concern ourselves with pre-ordained destiny we can create purpose of our own not limited to or confined by the restrictions of the chruch or by GOD therefore becoming GODS ourselves
