    Good list. Reading recs? I'm rolling through the rest of the Nag Hammadis now. Already determined Enoch is fake so don't swing that one at me.

      I'm exploring the non-canonical gospels right now. Started reading the gospel of Judas and will read the Gospel of Thomas next. Idk about the others but I befriended the Mandaean owners of my local israeliteelry shop so maybe when I revisit I can ask for something.

      Marcionism is superior to all of these

      I love Marcion but his gospel is lost so how do you know it's superior?

        I think he's basing it on Marcion's collation. Marcion's Bible collection was the first, but notably excludes the OT and only incorporates some of what is today the NT into it. It was probably a safer move because half of what's in the Bible isn't really holy, it's just there for context.

          Not only that but contradictory and self sabotaging.

          For legitimacy and "tradition". A new religion cannot just pop up and start contesting with rivals with no foundations, though i have sympathies with Marcion as he was on the right trajectory.

          It's an interesting read but I really don't think we should be trusting Tertullian, the guy who made up the whole feeding Christians to lion thing.

      Marcionism is superior to all of these

      Marcionism is just another variant of Gnosticism.

      It does not have to have a definition for the problem of evil to be a valid disqualification.
      If evil is confirmed to exist and God is omnipotent then he has caused it to happen.

      Citation needed.
      You have a Reddit-tier understanding of theology.

        You misunderstand. God is everything in Sikhism. Human actions in previous lives and their current life cause evil. But all things flow from God

          No, I didn't. We've moved past that point already. You recognized evil, so why venerate it? And worse, why would you anticipate it in higher planes?

        no, evil is morally relative
        a god who created and controls the universe is beyond human standards and morality

          If you believe this it means you have no morals to begin with.

            Evil is the absence or rejection of God.

            Evil is defined by good, what you determine to be good determines what is evil. So it’s all subjective, since anything can be evil nothing is.

    Islam. Everything is predestined and evil happens because Allah feels like it.

    Huh? They have some of the most consistent answers across in the entire list. Just because they don't drom the attributes you want to get rid of doesn't mean they're invalid.

    >>God is not omnipotent
    >Hinduism
    Hinduism isn’t a religion it’s a category for taxation purposes.
    >Gnosticism
    Incorrect, Gnosticism is so broad that you can’t accurately say that. For example in some forms of Gnosticism God (the monad) is omnipotent but just doesn’t give a shit.
    >Manichaeism
    That’s just a form of gnosticism.
    >Mandaeism
    Again just another form of gnosticsm.
    You also forgot Mormonism which holds God as a category rather than an actual being itself.

    You need to frick off back to plebbit till you learn more about theology.

        Zurvanism, a Gnostic variant of Zoroastrian, Zurvan was the Monad and created to letter beings, a Good “God” and a bad “God” then stopped caring.

    Islam aligns with Calvinism. The two basically have the same answer: God doesn't owe you shit. It's at least honest tbh.

    All of them disassociate Evil from their God(s) when in truth their God(s) created Evil and using it, the whole thing is fine tuned for Evil, it's not a fluke.
