I mean Nietchzse (however you spell his name) said god is dead, and so many plan out their lives as though god is actually dead. Also, people find different things inside of themselves. Some find evil and hatred and give and try to spread it around the world. I mean spirituality is too broad of a word, you need a directed spirituality (Daoism, Buddhism, Janism, etc.), or some set tenets. And even with this, people will fight over who has the right beliefs.
Humanity is endowed with freewill (the ability to choose). No person or organization has ever, throughout history, been able to bend/influence everyone to their will though many have tried. Even the anti-Christ (if you accept Biblical prophecy) won't be able to do that. No man or organization ever will. God has the power but in his wisdom doesn't. I can explain it further in a more scholarly way if you like.
And Friedrich Nietzsche, who ended firmly in the grip of insanity [which btw was not immaterial to his philosophies], was wrong. God is quite well.
1. There are seven major worldviews, and each one is different from the
others. With one exception (pantheism/polytheism), no one can consistently believe in more than one worldview because the central premises of each are opposed by those of the others. Logically, only one worldview can be true; the others must be false. The seven major worldviews are as follows: theism, atheism, pantheism, panentheism, deism, finite godism, and polytheism.
2. There are four basic views on origins: two are naturalistic, and two are supernaturalistic. The naturalistic views are called naturalistic creation and naturalistic evolution. The supernatural views are named theistic creation and theistic evolution.
