I had a choice of belonging to one of two groups one who believes God is Love and the other who believes "God is Dead," I would have to pick the group who believes in Love.
It's true that people have always believed in a higher power, but not necessarily everybody. Both sides have led to great accomplishments and great follies. But really, saying "God is dead" can mean a lot of different things, seeing as how the idea of an all-powerful creator can never be fully understood by most people, therefor opinions and ideas are infinite. So in my opinion, a lot of those Gods are deader than ****, and some of those Gods still make sense.
And I agree, man. Nothing wrong with a little love.
