An Insurrectionist Manifesto includes 4 insurrectionary gospels according to Martin Heidegger's philosophical version of the fourfold: earth and sky, gods and mortals. hard spiritual dogma and dominant philosophical theories, they provide a cooperative, world-affirming political theology that promotes new existence via now not resurrection yet rebel. The rebel in those gospels unfolds as a sequence of spectacular but worldly practices of significant confirmation. considering that those workouts don't depend on fantasies of break out, they engender intimate modifications of the self alongside the very coordinates from which they emerge. Enacting a comparative and contagious postsecular sensibility, those gospels draw at the paintings of Slavoj Žižek, Giorgio Agamben, Catherine Malabou, François Laruelle, Peter Sloterdijk, and Gilles Deleuze but rejuvenate scholarship in continental philosophy, severe race idea, the recent materialisms, speculative realism, and nonphilosophy. they believe past the sovereign strength of the single to begin a thorough politics "after" God.

Once we predicate our nature on this deadly logic of “eat or be eaten,” we then are perpetually confined to the fate of the cross and the lynching tree.

Why appeal to religious and spiritual values if a naturalistic and nonreligious understanding of the world is sufficient? If it is mainly designed to appeal to religious people because so many humans are Christian, then it necessarily fails as a solution, because religious practitioners are perceptive enough to see through the facade.
