- Feb 14, 2008Hey Michael
>>>What biblical elements are in Hermeticism, and where.<<<I don't remember the details (it isn't my theory... I just wanted to
give equal time for Pearson because I think his point is interesting),
but if I recall it is in Pearson's book "Gnosticism, Judaism, and
Egyptian Christianity". I don't believe he argues this
for "Hermeticism" (as you state) but for "Hermetism" (there is an
important difference). Either way, his point has been one of the
stronger reasons to connect Sethianism with Hermetism... in my view.
Still, there is a reason I did not include this view in my graph.
It would be very easy to change the chart to reflect his basic point.
Would you like me to do that? I will not lie, I don't think we should
do so just yet.
