Demiurge

from a Greek word denoting a skilled worker, it was in the Platonic system the name for the maker of the world, and so used by Greek Christian writers to refer to God's creative activity. It was, however, taken by the Gnostics to refer to a god who, as creator of the material world, thinks himself to be the Supreme God, but who in reality is incapable of knowing spiritual things. He deceives men by declaring in the Bible that he is the true God.
