Badiou's atheism is very different from someone like Christopher Hitchens, for example. My sense regarding Badiou's atheism is that if he were born 2000 years ago he might not have been so. A belief in a God seems to be a conditioned truth just like any other, and one which today can't create the same break away from established knowledge as it could before set theory was established. I think its only because of set theory that Badiou considers himself to be an atheist, because Badiou sees set theory as dismantling the idea of the One. Central to Badiou's theory is that the One is not, and only in this sense is he atheist.
