Religion is human projection

    Whilst Feuerbach may be reviving classical notions when he states that our conceptions of “god” are always just projections of our own values, and that god fulfills our need to objectify our virtues, and embodies our values. Thus the essence of religion is human nature, and our Gods tell us about ourselves…theology as anthropology. Nietzsche claims pretty much the same notion, that when we worship “god”, we’re really worship our own virtues, “god” represents our delight in ourselves, our feeling of power. It’s still relevant today because a belief in God is still relevant today.
