Turning The World Upside Down Pt. 1
Thomas JJ Altizer
Genuine atheism is almost unknown in our world.1 We have this so-called new atheism, which is extraordinarily shallow and simple minded.2 And almost no one has any awareness of what real atheism is.3 Now, let me give you two examples of what I identify as real atheism. One is William Blake, and the other’s Hegel. Now, when you think about Hegel and Blake, you’re thinking about figures that revolutionized the world. And that’s what real atheism is, it’s dedicated to turning the world upside down.
