This chapter sets out a plan for tinkering with Deleuzian concepts, connecting them with insights from the bio-cultural sciences of religion, and releasing revolutionary forces that have for too long been domesticated within the discipline of theology. By poking around the sedentary edifices of traditional theology, as he himself so often did, we can pry open cracks in its Iconology, flatten its religious Figures, forge new conceptual tools and weapons with the fragments, and assemble productive atheist machines. The creative flows released by Deleuzian critique, such as his rigorous analysis of psychoanalysis and capitalism (Anti-Oedipus), can be complemented and intensified by an equally rigorous analysis of religious icons, especially the Icon of Christian theology (Anti-Christ).
