You ask a question that concerns God, then you don't want any Christians to answer, I can tell you that unless one has a relationship with God,he has no idea of who God is, therefore you are not really asking a question, you are merely looking for some one to agree with you.

A lot of the gnostic and nag hammadi texts say a lot of other things as well.
A few of them even get quite silly. There's good reason why most of them weren't canonized, but I don't wholly discount all of them, either. Must prove all things and hold fast that which is true.
Offhand, though, I don't remember reading much about the demiurge (god of the bible being the evil god) in these texts - granted, I haven't spent too much time with them. Usually it was just much stranger and esoteric views on things mostly mentioned in the bible otherwise.
Any chance you could direct me to the specific books you're talking about so I can check this out? Thanks.
P.S. I found it rather amusing that someone who believes that "a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree", can comment on how silly Gnosticism can get.
