What do they believe? What do you think? Talk about religion as it exists today.

Why don’t you get some help, GB? It’s pretty obvious you’re mad at God? You sound like Hawking LOL

The Gnostic Christian reality.
Gnostic Christian Jesus said, "Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and will reign over all.
[And after they have reigned they will rest.]"
I'm intrigued once more. Where did you get the stuff in the brackets? I'm not aware of any lacuna there
"If those who attract you say, 'See, the Kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you.

If they say to you, 'It is under the earth,' then the fish of the sea will precede you.

Rather, the Kingdom of God is inside of you, and it is outside of you.

[Those who] become acquainted with [themselves] will find it; [and when you] become acquainted with yourselves, [you will understand that] it is you who are the sons of the living Father.

But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."

As you can see from that quote, if we see God's kingdom all around us and inside of us, we cannot think that the world is anything but evolving perfection. Most just don't see it and live in poverty. Let me try to make you see the world the way I do.
I'd read this more in a "you see what you think" way (see Thunder). Poverty is opposite to fullness. If one doesn't know themselves and their own weak points, they could easily be deceived and lead astray from life, which, unpredictable as it is, is the true way things are. They'd no longer see the Pleroma, what they'd see is a fake, finite world where fish & birds might as well come before man, as, living in a preset world, they are not able to be responsible and autonomous Men themselves. Ergo, know where your traps and limits and passions are, so you'll be able to stay on track with reality and judge things on their own merit. Gnothi seauton and all that.

I can help with that one:

Clement of Alexandria, Miscellanies 2.9: But the beginning is to marvel at matters, as Plato says in the Theaetetus and Matthias in the traditions, exhorting: "Marvel at things present, placing this down as the first degree of the knowledge of the beyond," which also is written in the gospel according to the Hebrews: "He who marveled shall reign, and he who reigned shall rest."

Clement of Alexandria, Miscellanies 5.14: For those things can be the same as these: "He who seeks shall not cease until he finds, and finding he shall marvel, and having marveled he shall reign, and having reigned he shall rest."

Interesting. I'd figure it's not a case of "bad translation" - the NHL Gospel of Thomas is somewhat edited to support a certain ideological position.
