The God Above God, Oct 4, 2020 Dualistic religions did not occur in the steady, stable, and trouble-free states. They acquired strength only in places with an inordinate accumulation of suffering and where the darkness was so deeply condensed that the very earthly existence and all benevolent intentions became pointless. Where God and Satan swapped… Continue lendo “Bogomils: From Satanail to Satan” (Alexander Maistrovoy)

Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio: “Dealing with Christian superstition” (Robert M. Price)

Superstition is more than just believing in fiction. It’s a dangerous incubator for cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias, and warped perceptual filters.

Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio: “The Egyptian Origins of Gnosticism” (Miguel Conner)

Any true ecstasy is dangerous. It resembles the last stage of initiation in the Egyptian mysteries when, instead of the ultimate knowledge, one is told, "Osiris is a black divinity." The absolute remains unknowable. I see a form of madness, not of knowledge, in the ecstasy of life's ultimate origins. You cannot experience it except… Continue lendo Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio: “The Egyptian Origins of Gnosticism” (Miguel Conner)
