When you rehearse death to stay alive, and recite silence to noisily communicate with the unseen, then you are in the religious domain.  When the other in you calls you, and your reply reverberates fears and repentance, then you are religious.   By then if you can’t find yourself while holding your own hand, you are definitely entering the realm of Artheism.

Practicing distance is the gate to both religion and Artheism. The difference is whether to spell out your own name or a different one when entering no man’s land. Distance is what keeps us whole.

We breathe out in order to visualize what’s inside us. We create shapes in order to converse with ourselves, a monologue. We have to be torn apart to achieve wholeness. God had to breathe out Adam in order to achieve “Godness”, for the act of creation is an act of self-generation. The outside is the desolate state of the inside. Words are the visual shape of emptiness.

There is an internal emptiness/absence that every creator fears yet cannot grasp. The creator digs out that which he cannot see, then externalizes it by naming it. The absence that names refer to subverts the process and renames the creator. Adam was taught names, including the one that refers to the concealed one. In Genesis Adam named, in the Quran Adam was taught names, but in both cases objects came into being once named. The concealed name is the son’s name.  

The psychoanalytical controversy over the position of the father is really about the son. Language is our means to understand ourselves, naming is creating and silence is non-being. The name of the father is the son’s attributes.

Allah, the Quranic GOD is far more advanced than his predecessors. He is but a voice, an endless list of attributes. There is no corpse when it comes to Allah. He is named, therefore we exist, we are his corpse.

The Artheist is a prophet whose message is the utterance of names. He will rewrite Genesis so it reads:

    Then Adam said, "Let us make God in our image, in our likeness, and let him rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."

   So Adam created God in his own image, in the image of Adam he created him.

   Adam blessed him and said to him, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.

The LORD Adam formed God from the dusk of his inner silence and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and God became a living being"


      Naming is the holy task of every human, when no taker in sight the Artheist will perform the duty of Adam. He does not deconstruct; he reconstructs when he renames.       © Karim Chaibi 2005
