Richard asks Tim about the Gnostic concept of the Demiurge, the lesser God responsible for the creation of the material cosmos. Tim talks about how the Gnostics used the Demiurge to explain the problem of evil, how a God of pure love could create a world of suffering.
Tim goes on to discuss whether he feels this answer to the problem stands up to scrutiny and where his own thought process has taken him.
