Re: The demons and the pigs of the demiurge Polyphemus

The historical Satornilos, Cerdon, Marcion hated the demiurge without hope of redemption for him. But already Marcion was slightly judaized since he denied that the demiurge was evil: he was only forever sadically "just". After Marcion, the original dualism became ditheism: The demiurge was doubled:...

Re: The demons and the pigs of the demiurge Polyphemus

I am not denying that the gerasene was identified with Paul to attack Paul and the Gnostics. The identity: Gerasene = Paul = blind demiurge who converts himself = Polyphemus ...was realized by a Judaizer who had the epistles interpolated with the passages referring to Paul as pre-christian persecuto...

Re: The demons and the pigs of the demiurge Polyphemus

If Polyphemus is the demiurge (afterall, both are blind entities), could he be Paul via the identity Gerasene = parody of Paul? Only a judaizer can raise that equation. As only a judaizer can invent a Paul confessing the activity of persecutor of the Christians. I don't think that the gerasene conve...

Re: An Improvement Over Giuseppe's NUMEROUS 'Demiurge' Arguments

A demiurge who converts himself and becomes good can only reflect a gnosticism going to be partially judaized, just as Sabaoth becomes good after the his conversion while the his father Yaldabaoth is thrown in the hell. Eznik is late to understand the early Satornilos, Cerdon, Marcion. If Paul is se...

The demons and the pigs of the demiurge Polyphemus

Who argues for Mark being based on Odissey mentions in particular this parallelism: The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned. (Mark 5:13b) [460] should be lightened of the woes which good-for-naught Noman has brought me.’ “So saying, he sent t...

Moreover, re - The Jesus Legend was a gentile Gnostic thing. . -- Gentiles would have included followers of Egyptian mystery religions , which were spreading and growing throughout the eastern Mediterranean in the 1st and 2nd centuries AD/CE . When I say that Gentiles caused the Jesus Legend (by me...

Re: The crucifixion as form of death derived from the baptism of the god Jesus

The Death as immersion of the original Christ and the derived practice of baptism would explain why Christian texts insist so much on the theme of nakedness of Christ and of the Christians: an example among many, the Young Naked. But naturally, all this written by me in this thread would have consis...

Re: A modern analogy to ancient Christian roots.

Nazarenes/Nazoraeans, the Way, Galileans ⁠— from the gospels (or the acts). Apostles, the Twelve (?), the brethren of the Lord ⁠— from the epistles (or the apocalypse). I know your reconstruction differs, but this is what we have in our texts, and I disagree pretty thoroughly with your reconstructi...

Re: The crucifixion as form of death derived from the baptism of the god Jesus

it is precisely the identity of death (as immersion/drowning in the infernal waters) that gives the resurrection to both the god and the followers of the god. That's exactly what was believed in Egypt about Osiris you moron. but I have derived it from the Jewish text Odes of Solomon not from Egypt....

Re: A modern analogy to ancient Christian roots.

Nazarenes/Nazoraeans, the Way, the Twelve, the brethren of the Lord, the apostles, Galileans, and so on. Adjacent to those possibly formative groups lurk other groups which may or may not have had an input: Hemerobaptists, Gnostics, Essenes, the so called Fourth Philosophy, and others. I disagree i...
