How would Nietzsche argue against classical theism?



Completely out of curiosity, how would someone like Nietzsche, let's use him as an example, argue against Aquinas's metaphysical argument for classical theism. I can't seem to find any references in his works, so I thought it would be an interesting thought experiment to think about how Nietzsche would argue against someone like Thomas Aquinas. I'm excited to see your answers.

Folks seem to be upvoting the question, so it can't be as bad as it seems. But I agree, defensively putting a bounty on a question you know is weak to protect it from closure is inappropriate. – None – 2017-02-20T22:38:12.297

Nietzsche's argument against classical theism is "Look around. How much damage has been done by this concept, versus how much good? It was a beautiful idea -- several of them even. We get the point, but it didn't work." What more needs to be said? – None – 2017-02-20T22:41:01.817
