Colby Whittaker, a student a Duke Divinity school, has written a fabulous, Dr. Seuss-inspired, Gnostic creation story – Dr. Seuss Does Gnosticism. Here’s how it begins:
One day the first principle was feeling a bit down,
his glumdiferous magnificence turned in a frown.
he pondered and thunk and he thunk and he thought
and oh what a surprise when he saw what he’d wrought
there in the light of his emanated glow,
sat the second principle, the barbelo!
The whole thing is well worth reading if you’re interested in gnosticism, Greek philosophy, or creative writing in general.
