The fact that the strong races of northern Europe did not repudiate this Christian god does little credit to their gift for religion and not much more to their taste.  They ought to have been able to make an end of such a moribund and worn out product of the decadence .  A curse lies upon them because they were not equal to it; they made illness, decrepitude and contradiction a part of their instincts and since then they have not managed to create any more gods.  Two thousand years have come and gone and not a single new god!  Instead, there still exists, and as if by some intrinsic right, as if he were the ultimatum and maximum of the power to create gods, of the creator spiritus in mankind this pitiful god of Christian monotono theism!  This hybrid image of decay, conjured up out of emptiness, contradiction and vain imagining, in which all the instincts of decadence , all the cowardices and wearinesses of the soul find their sanction!
