From Earth to...

"Woman was God's second mistake." -- Friedrich Nietzsche

After I received this quote via "I heart quotes" on twitter; I wanted to send Nietzsche this brief note, despite the long decades between us.
Dear Mr. Nietzsche (where ever you are, heaven or hell)
Today while reading your quote "Woman was God's second mistake", I thought of passing you this note just to tell that: if by any chance God ever did mistakes and the second was woman, then make sure the 1st was man.
Now we may both rest in peace.
21th century Earthly regards..
Not yours,
Blue

Tarek : The quote is taken from his famous book "The Antichrist", which you can find online and read if you want to. The whole passage will make blue even more furious I assume, cause according to Nietzsche, God's first mistake was "Animals", see! :
But before you read,I hereby state that neither do I endorse this crap, nor do I claim any knowledge of Nietzsche and his philosophy, Now See beggad ba2a :

The old God, all "spirit," all high priest, all perfection, takes a stroll in his garden; but he is bored. Against boredom even gods struggle in vain. What does he do? He invents man—man is entertaining. But lo and behold! Man too is bored. God's compassion with the sole distress that distinguishes all paradises knows no limits: soon he creates other animals as well. God's first mistake: man did not find the animals entertaining; he ruled over them, he did not even want to be "animal." Consequently God created woman. And indeed, that was the end of boredom—but of other things too! Woman was God's second mistake. "Woman is by nature a snake, Heve"—every priest knows that; "from woman comes all calamity in the world"—every priest knows that, too. "Consequently, it is from her too that science comes." Only from woman did man learn to taste of the tree of knowledge.

I got what you want to say and you are right the Sin needs two parts to do it and we can never blame women alone or men alone.

One weired Quote that i used to like (don't remember the author now, but its written 3ala lesan Adam)
"And After all these years, i would choose to go to hell with her, than stay in heaven without her.."

I can't stand Nietzche.
So would he prefer humans never existed at all?

Well, at least then nothing would have to put up with his big-headed philosophy.

Of course God makes mistakes. Man is his first one. (Oh yes, be sooo wiiise: remind me your freewill! :D) God's always suffering when looking at His creature. Poor omnipotent omniscient eternal God, who created the world after spending the eternity in hell...

But Nietzsche's philosophy is not for wide herd, who can't even think beyond their learned (and empty) "God is perfection": your curses mean nothing (only compromise yourself), while your "not worth reading" even help achieve better readers selection. To address everyone is to be noone.
