Just checking to see if we're thinking about the same thing: demiurge is supposed to be Jehova? Lets say we're talking about things in the wilderness happening factually, maybe the coming out of Egypt as factual but the flood and everything before it as metaphorical. How does that affect whether the demiurge concept works or not? Supposing the flood story is a metaphor? I could consider that. I mean, if the garden and creation stories are metaphorical than why not? So you would tend not to think in terms of a demiurge then, am I right? Its a hypothetical question. I do not know the history of where the Gnostics came from, although I occasionally wonder about it.
Actually, I'm being mostly free associational.
