On atheism and God the Father

“According to Lacan at least, there are no atheistic theories, even though they may be believed to exist; in particular, when in the name of a theory someone opposes the notion of God, God is preserved, because the supposition is preserved that the knowledge in question is already there” (Jacques-Alain Miller. [2010]. The non-existent seminar. In The Symptom, Vol. 11).
