The Gnosis is the result of a radical attempt of rationalizing the Christian Revelation. This "science-knowledge" or the gnosis with liar name born from their own reflections, make them see in all the creation the result of the activity of an ignorant demiurge God, Who is the enemy of the human race.They sau that the stars to the human being, the stamp of an ab origin imperfection is being felt, which only the gnosis is capable of discouraging it through its paths. All these pseudo-certainties concretize themselves at the end into a radical-extremist, anticosmic and antisomatic learning.
