Atheism

Each man is born where the Father utters constantly his Verb. Man is man only through this Word. Even if it is hidden, this truth is the only founder of human plenitude. Without it the human reality dissolves in simple biology.

Man is child of the logos. This is the first obviousness of any anthropology. The Christian revelation reveals this humanizing word as the Logos of God, the Verb made flesh to live among us. Created at the image and the resemblance of the divine Logos, man is a speaking living being. This humanizing word is only alive in dialogue. Thus the Logos of God is only alive in alliance.

The sin against the human reality starts with a schizoid, dialogue cutting, speech. It is achieved when this schizoid speech becomes dominating. Is the archaeological sin, the original sin, the sin of the world, basically another one than the perversion of the humanizing Word? Another 'diction', a contra-'diction' of the basic essentials of authentic humanity. A sin against the matrix of specific human and, therefore, a sin against the being of man.

Off this space of strict 'humanity' - symmetrical inversion of the account of Genesis! - God had to be driven out. And of course, in front of the claim of a purely partheno-genetic origin of man, especially the Judeo-Christian Father. However you are never finished driving out God. He resists beyond our superficial logic and coherence. Deeply, much more deeply, largely hidden and driven back, attractive and alarming, the great dramaturgy is played.


Our modern atheism is really and radically possible only starting from the Judeo-Christian experience. Which other one than a man of divine filiation can truly want to 'kill' the Father? Notice the radically original significance of Western atheism starting from this experience. The prefix 'a-' is not a neutral absence. The 'theos' is not an abstract idea. In its depths, it is about a repression. God is driven back as is driven back an anguish. He is driven back as somebody who was 'known' in the biblical meaning of the term, through a concrete and existential encounter. A singular individual can pretend not having met him personally; but he was still meeting him through his cultural matrix and the historical experience of his human community. The modern man has thus to be 'complexed' of God! You do not fight a whole night with the Other one without being, like Jacob, limping on the morning. Wounded. Deeply wounded. But finally, is it God who is thus driven back or is it man who drives himself back in front of God?

God is not any more ultimately including. Somebody else is pretending that!



In the best of the assumptions a chance is left to God. But only at the limits. Thus for Kant, beyond the 'theoretical' possibilities of our reason, a categorical imperative is essential. A pure 'practical' requirement which postulates outside the sphere of our possibility a 'something' which takes name God, and freedom, and immortality. Exit certainty. There remains a simple postulate.



A certain 'logic' is going on. It excludes more and more any recourse to a reference frame or a guarantor from elsewhere. From now it is the human possibility which has to found the human possibilities. You cannot find any more a philosophy which is not primarily
critical.



It was believed that man, finally delivered of its mystery, would find his innocence. It was believed that man, finally come back without illusions to the pure immanence, would spread out like the most beautiful animal in the most beautiful zoological garden. It is just a strange evil which started to proliferate… This sin against the Spirit is promised to death. Man is undoubtedly too tall to be offered to the omens of the Masters thinkers of this time. The mystery of human depths, even barricaded, is too holy to be delivered to the traffickers of the temple.
