Michel Onfray, coerente con sé stesso, prende di mira in questo libro una religione che, ancor più dei monoteismi del suo Trattato di ateologia, sembra dover ancora avere vita lunga e felice.

Milton might have some wish to confuse his simpler readers, and God to confuse the loyalist angels, who have been summoned to hear him; one might think God could not want to look weak, but he may be wanting to justify his revenge.

14, and Luke i. 33] “of his kingdom there shall be no end”. I reply, there shall be no end of his kingdom ... till time itself shall be no longer, Rev. x. 6, until everything which his kingdom was intended to effect shall be accomplished ... it will not be destroyed, nor will its period be a period of dissolution, but rather of perfection and consummation, like the end of the law, Matt. v. 18. The last clause seems to recall the precedent of an earlier evolutionary step, whereby the New Dispensation of Jesus made the Mosaic Law unnecessary; it is clear that the ﬁnal one, which makes even the Millennium unnecessary, must be of an extremely radical character.
