      From the post #5307<br><br> >>>It is
      genneraly accepted (though it has been questioned) that
      Mani was an Elkasite who left the group due to certain
      disputes.<<<<br><br>The question was more or less put to the rest by the
      Cologne Mani Codex verifiying the writing of al-Nad�m.
      Mani didn't leave the group according to CMC what he
      did was he had revelations from his heanenly twin
      "syzygos" in which his concepts were not recoincidable with
      those of baptists. He kept the revelation secret until
      he was forced to do so and even then he tried to
      reform the sects. Many in the baptists including his
      father joined him after he made his revelation public.
      So it is pretty simplilastic to write what you
      wrote.<br><br>>>>Apon leaving he began to formulate his own system,
      which included the cosmology familiar to
      Gnostics.<<<<br><br>Again if we are to take CMC at the face value then Mani
      already formulated his system evem before his so called
      break with the baptists. But he might have also
      formulated some aspects later but can you say dicitively
      that Manichaen cosmology is based upon the same
      concept? Meaning, are they really same or sort of similar
      due to its dualistic nature?<br><br>cont.
