Knowledge or enlightment
Familiarity and strangeness
The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit
Why is there evil in the world?
Why does an omnipotent and caring God allow evil to exist?

- God is secretly a dick
Gnostics believe that the world is fundamentally as it seems
Gnostics believe we are trapped in the flawed creation of a deluded god who demands our love and worship
Gnostics believe we are the dreams of a deluded god who demands our love and worship
Extra analogy time
Who is Jesus?
Monster or fuck up?
Sympathy for the Demiurge
We were all going direct to Heaven,
we were all going direct the other way
The Gnostics: what do they know?
