Gnosticism may be one of the oldest conspiracy theories in human civilization.
From UFOs to psychic powers and government conspiracies history is riddled with unexplained events. You can turn back now, or learn the stuff they don't want you to know.
Here are the facts. In December 1945 two men dug for fertilizer at the bottom of Egypt's Jabal al-Tarif cliff, just outside of Nag Hammadi. In the ground, they found a jar that would fundamentally change the world. At first, they hesitated to open this container fearing that it might contain a jin. When they did open it they found 12 to 13 leather-bound papyrus books or codices. The ancient texts date from the Fourth Century A.D., and they tell a very different story about the creation of the universe. A secret vast conspiracy spanning the course of human history. What if the world we live in now is just the pale, evil shadow of reality? What if God Abrahamic religions worship is false? Here's where it gets crazy.
The Nag Hammadi Library revealed an astonishing amount of information about a mysterious group of sects known collectively as the Gnostics. The Gnostics believed that there was more than one world or universe and that the one in which we reside, the world of time, flesh, and the matter was imperfect. A kind of false world ruled by a creator called the Demiurge. Gnostics believed that most Christians mistook this Demiurge for the highest God. In the Sethian school of Gnosticism, this hostile entity created the physical plain as a way of trapping souls. Essentially, the God worshiped by other sects of Christianity was, to the Gnostics an Adversary.
Other sects of Gnosticism argued that this Demiurge, instead of being a demonic force, worked in concert with this highest God toward spiritual salvation. While this idea may seem bizarre in the modern age, in its time Gnosticism was the focus of a war for the soul of Christianity. Orthodox Christians denounced Gnostic beliefs along with other sects of early Christianity as heresy. And while it fell to the wayside, this belief system has left it's marked on modern Christian teachings to date. For many schools of Christian thought, Gnosticism was another heresy rooted out of the original and true teachings of God. Yet, according to the Gnostics, there's a vast conspiracy afoot. A cover-up on a cosmic scale continuing to date, and it's something Orthodox Christianity doesn't want you to know.

Apocrypha means essentially something that is hidden. In the sense of Biblical literature, Apocrypha refers to the collection of books that are kinda like the B sides of the album that is the modern Bible. These are the things that are not typically included in the official version of some denominations religious work.
