Not quite as mad as the ether stuff, but not far off.

We are the good Christians because we are not the dim ones who believe in the supernatural.

According to the Wiki, gnostics believe in god, often called Monad. How can a god not be supernatural?

Wiki is wrong.

You'd best go and edit it and find out whether other Gnostics agree with you then.

So do you not believe in any god at all then?

Are you saying that your form of Christianity is derived from the Old and New Testaments minus the miracles?

Re: Gnostic What?
So like Buddhism but with a different leader?

Atheistic but a believer in the golden rule.

Basically you're me with added woo.

More or less, but I have Gnosis.


Yeh, that's the added woo.

If you give me your address I'll send you my razor and you shave off the fake Christian crap. You'll feel so much lighter. And you wouldn't have to explain yourself all the time.

But maybe that's what you like about it? Do you feel special?

Thanks for the opinion, without argument, out of the blue, you pathetic piece of human garbage.
Make your case or fuck off, looser.

Re: Questions
He calls himself the Greatest I Am, he's not likely to be terribly self-aware. And so it proves.
