C'est ainsi qui raisonnent les nombreux partisans de Celse, de Porphyre, d'Apollonius, de Symmaque, de Libanius, de l'empereur Julien, de tous les philosophes jusqu'au temps des Pomponace, des Cardan, des Machiavel, des Socin, de milord Herbert, de Montaigne, de Charron, de Bacon, du chevalier Temple, de Locke, de milord Shaftesbury, de Bayle, de Wollaston, de Toland, de Tindal, de Collins, de Woolston, de milord Bolingbroke, de Middleton, de Spinosa, . . . (etc) . . . qui, comme les Musulmans, les Chinois, et les anciens Parsis, croiraient insulter Dieu, s'il lui supposaient un fils qui ait fait des miracles dans la Galilée.*
