"The Nag Hammadi"? That's a place. I assume you mean the Gnostic Texts found there? Which one in particular were you thinking of?

Well what would you call a 'Reptilian head' and what kind of reptile would you be referring to?

In Gnosticism, this serpent symbolized eternity and the soul of the world and in some quarters they believe that the Edinic snake was a liberator.

You have me confused.
