@Tyco,How you can call Gnostics, or gnostic texts, "atheists", this is totally beyond me. Did you actually read/study gnostic literature?
I think @christx11 makes good point that it may not be a condemnation of all Gnostic texts but just those that have been specifically corrupted by the Lizzies.This was a specific question regarding 'texts such as the apocryphon of John'.
I am not sure what you mean by "this material here". If the "material here is "apocryphon of John" it might be they read it from an "anthropocentric" point of view not realizing they are a bio-genetically engineered species. Are their gods are created in their own image or they are created in the image of their gods? Either way, they do not consider that they may have been tampered with by a 4D STS group of lesser "gods" but nevertheless highly intelligent ones even capable of time-travel. I think we could easily be influenced to think we are at a higher place in the food chain than we really are.Well, IMO you are extremely wrong here. Again, did you read the scriptures? I cant imagine anyone who did read the gnostic texts can write something so utterly obnoxious.
Would anyone with an "anthropocentric world view" study this material here for an extended period of time"?
Q: (L) How do you mean? Creating a race to replace human beings, or abducting specific humans to replace them with a clone or whatever?
A: Mainly the former. You see, if one desires to create a new race, what better way than to mass hybridize, then mass reincarnate. Especially when the host species is so forever ignorant, controlled, and anthropocentric. What a lovely environment for total destruction and conquest and replacement… see?
