Our myths were created to further discussions and debates and not to be read literally.
This link speaks to this. You, given all the lies that the winners of the God wars wrote of Gnostic Christianity, should be asking us what we believe and not ignoring what we say we believe to believe the lies told of us.

If you are not willing to believe what I say of my religion, do not bother asking about it.
I agree with almost everything in the video.
However, nothing that was stated by the speaker addressed the topic of this thread which is an assertion that there can be nothing “supernatural” associated with the creation of the universe – and that anyone who considers such a thing to be possible is “stupid” according to you.
In other words, you have made a proclamation about reality that is way beyond the reach and scope of Gnostic Christianity.
And when you add to that the fact that you also stated the following...

...In the Gnostic Christian view....there is another God above Yahweh...
...which is something that is absolutely teeming with “supernatural” implications (be it myth or not), then you are being blatantly hypocritical by supporting (or at the very least, muddying) your argument with ideas that you have already declared to be nonsense.
Two things. To answer your "In other words, you have made a proclamation about reality that is way beyond the reach and scope of Gnostic Christianity."
Correct. As well as everyone else.
First. I do tend to overuse the word stupid. I am working on that.
I also happen to be working on something pertinent to Yahweh and his first commandment which identifies many other Gods. That would include you.
Have all free thinkers and the religious settled for a Scientific and spiritual God of the Gaps?
Religions are now recognizing evolution as part of their God of the Gaps ideologies. Science also admits to their own God of the multiverse Gaps where their laws break down.
Religions are here to stay, however; so is science. Religions will just have to learn to live with this.
Governments and the secular world, which have to act in a non-believer way, separate of church and state; have also had science cast much doubt about the efficacy of all the gods.
Thanks to all the gods for our Socio-democratic secular legal systems.
A human created ideology is proving itself to be better overall.
Humankind, or our equivalent; is the God of the Gap.
God is best defined as a human being. Do you agree?
We are all driven by our instinct to be the fittest human beings possible. We do so, through laws and rules of conduct which are all man made. God is redundant and remains a drain on the progress of civilization.
We all have the same God of the Gaps. So why are we fighting?
