Gnosticism
« on: March 15, 2011, 09:59:28 AM »
I've thought of starting this topic for some time now. Gnosticism is basicly based on Judeo-Christian belief "or the other way around" but to keap it basic, "as a thread starter at least" It is the belief that the universe was created by a less than perfect being. The creater is a benevolent being that simply did the best he could with what he was given to work with. He was refered to as the Demiurge, among other things. As usual, I have left the topic wide open, wheather you know much about the topic or not, if the idea seams interesting, feal free to coment.

I definitely like that sort of belief, because if I did believe in any sort of "supreme being" I wouldn't think it to be anywhere near perfect.

The idea is certainly in line with my beliefs.
