Denys Turner, "How to be an atheist," New Blackfriars 82, nos. 977/978 (July 2002): 321 =How to be an atheist: inaugural lecture delivered at the University of Cambridge, 12 October 2001 (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2002), 10.
I am here trying to encourage the atheist, not the theist, to have a decent go at denying God. All I am saying to the atheist is that she had better sharpen up a bit on her denials, for on the score so far, Thomas is well ahead.
That said, now for some words of encouragement for the atheist, for, poor bewildered chap, having abandoned a merely parasitical anti-fundamentalism, he must by now be feeling quite at a loss to know how to set about denying God.Ibid., 323 =15.
