Forgive me if any of this is repeated information, but I thought this topic was so interesting that I was hoping we could discuss it further.

May 1, 1776, was the most important date in Freemasonry's Luciferic New World Order Plans. On that date an obscure Jesuit-trained professor of canon law at the University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria, Adam Weishaupt, founded a secret society called the Ancient and Illuminated Seers of Bavaria (AISB for short). Illuminati was founded on a mixture of Masonic secrets (Luciferic Doctrine), Islamic Mysticism (Sufism), and Jesuit mental discipline (Hatha Yoga). A unique and dangerous element was it's scientific use of the drug, hashish, to produce an "illuminated" state of mind--derived directly through the Knights Templar's association with the Order of the Assassins (circa 1050 AD).

Illumination had long been a cherished component of Masonry and other occult groups. The Masonic candidate requests, and is promised "light in Masonry." As he goes up the ladder of initiation, he receives "more light". It is because of this society's emphasis on illumination that the AISB became known by its more common title, the Illuminati.

The term Illuminati, is the plural of the Latin, Illuminatus, meaning "one who is illuminated." Thus, it means a person who has received the full extent of the initiation that is available through Freemasonry.

Masks of the Illuminati

Technically, an Illuminatus is a Master Mason who has received all the "light" Masonry can bestow. He is beyond 32° and even beyond 33°! Such people are known as the Masters of Masters of the Temple, and collectively are known by several names other than the Illuminati.

“There has not been and there will not be a place for the unfit. The fit will lead, and if the unfit are not coming along there is no place for them....In the Age of Enlightenment there is no place for ignorant people. Nature will not allow ignorance to prevail.”

- Transcendental Meditation guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Most of the elite were born elite. Their upbringing is steeped in tradition and is a kind of secret society in of itself. Their father was a Mason, his father was a Mason, his father's father was a Mason. Perhaps while growing up the child heard stories of his father's involvement in other secret groups.

“There exists in the world today, and has existed for thousands of years, a body of enlightened humans united in what might be termed, an Order of the Quest. It is composed of those whose intellectual and spiritual perceptions have revealed to them that civilization has secret destiny . . .

The outcome of this 'secret destiny' is a World Order ruled by a King with supernatural powers.

This King was descended of a divine race; that is, he belonged to the Order of the Illumined for those who come to a state of wisdom then belong to a family of heroes-perfected human beings.”

Manly P. Hall 33° Mason, The Secret Destiny of America

This man is certainly in the position to know. He is regarded as the number one Masonic authority on these matters. So here again we see the plan of a new 'World Order', only this time we're told the philosophy behind such a belief. He also informs us of the conspiracy's antiquity.

It goes back to their belief in Atlantis and the subsequent migration of priestly kings after the destruction of the continent. This body of 'enlightened humans' settled in the Nile delta, and passed their knowledge to the Ancient Egyptians. Who in turn, kept these secrets safe, only to be revealed to initiates of the mystery schools. This is why Masonry is so rife with Egyptian symbolism. Freemasonry itself, they teach, was originally practiced in Atlantis. Before the destruction of their civilization (either by their own hands, or punishment from God) these Atlantians were said to have a worldwide culture (ruled by one king), a perfect religion and science.

Michael Howard, an excellent researcher of this ' occult conspiracy,' summed up his own findings this way:

“A very important aspect of the work of the secret societies has always been the ultimate unification of the world religions. This aim was based on the restoration of the pre-Christian Mystery Tradition, which had been persecuted by the early Church and forced to go underground in medieval Europe, and the recognition that all religions had originated in a universal spirituality referred to as the Perennial Philosophy, the Primordial Tradition or the Ancient Wisdom. The mystical beliefs of the secret societies were, and indeed are, based on the Hermetic maxim 'As above-so below' which teaches that the natural world is a material reflection of the spiritual. It forms the esoteric basis for the Ancient Egyptian Mysteries, Gnosticism, Esoteric Christianity, the Cabbala, the Hermetic tradition, alchemy and societies such as the Templars, Freemasons and Rosicrucians. The occult doctrines of geomancy, alchemy, astrology and sexual magic taught by these secret societies were used as symbolic metaphors illustrating the progression of the individual from material darkness to the spiritual light of understanding.”

- The Occult Conspiracy: Secret Societies - Their Influence and Power in World History (pp. 170-171)

All of these paths eventually leads the initiate into a belief system that he is privileged and chosen to carry on the 'Great Work' or 'The Plan', that he is above the rest of humanity, he has become 'Illumined'. Therefore imposed rule is a 'right'. The ONLY allegiance is to the 'Light'. It is no coincidence that Illuminati, in its literal translation means-'bearers of light'-Lumen, derived from Lucifer, 'angel of light'. That, my friend, is the final secret of the illuminati. One World Government under one World Religion, ruled by one King. It is nothing but an evil imitation, a counterfeit of the Kingdom of God.

In Beyond the Light, William Schnoebelen describes his experiences in witchcraft and Masonry. As he climbed up the ladder in both disciplines, he found himself square in the face of the Illuminati:

“The branch of the Illuminati into which I was inducted was supposedly directly descended from European Chapters of the AIBS....Was I not part of a higher form of humanity? This is what I had been deluded into believing by Illuminism. I was told I was the next step up in the ladder of evolution, and that Illumined Ones were as far above human beings as people were above apes!

From somewhere...Weishaupt produced the 'Law of Fives.' His original inner council was structured around the pentagram (symbol of the Blazing Star, Sirius). According to our teaching, this inner council was made up of five men: Weishaupt's friend, Kollmer, Francis Dashwood (of the Satanic Hellfire Club), Alphonse Donatien De Sade (where we get our word 'sadism'), Meyer Amschel Rothschild (founder of the great banking house) and Weishaupt.”

Enforcing secrecy within the Illuminati was done in the same manner as in the Greek Mystery Schools and Super-Masonic Organizations. The candidates were required to confess compromising information about themselves i.e., sexual indiscretions, and previously hidden criminal behaviour as if he were confessing his sins to a Catholic priest. This reminds one of the rites conducted in another secret society of fame, namely, the Order of the Skull and Bones. There's plenty of evidence to suggest the orders are one and the same, or at least the modern version of Weishaupt's order. Moreover, if Weishaupt's Illuminati were to survive it's "supposed" abolishment, besides its obvious survival in higher Masonic degrees, the Order of the Skull and Bones would be a worthy and powerful candidate.

It must be realized, however, that Weishaupt's Ancient and Illuminated Seers of Bavaria (AISB) was only an outward manifestation of the Illuminati. The plans uncovered for the overthrow of all the governments and religions of the world were certainly giving to Weishaupt by that most "august body"; here and there only hinted about. They represent the "new man" of marxism; the race of perfected ones that Hitler – after a face to face meeting – had said were terrifying. The Secret Chiefs; whether human or some form of higher-intelligent beings. The Secret Brotherhood who desire to usher in the Golden Age of totalitarian rule.

“Witchcraft never was extirpated in the whole of western history. Moreover, if we need fix a date for the institutionalization of witchcraft in the Christian West, we should look to 16th century Protestant England where, under Elizabeth I, the sorcerer John Dee achieved state power, founded Freemasonry and built upon the occult edifice of Catholic heretics such as Giordano Bruno and Pico della Mirandola in pursuing a "Christian" kabbalah and an alliance with the black magic practitioner, Rabbi Judah Lowe of Prague.”

- Michael A. Hoffman II

“If the facts concerning the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations be accepted, it will be seen that the proper study of political mankind is the study of power elites, without which nothing that happens can be understood. These elites, preferring to work in private, are rarely found posed for photographers, and their influence upon events has therefore to be deduced from what is known of the agencies they employ.”

- A.K Chesterton in The New Unhappy Lords, chapter XXIV

“There does exist and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for 20 years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret record.”

- Carroll Quigley, Georgetown University history professor (deceased), in Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time, 1966, p.950

“[...] In addition to these pragmatic goals, the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups.”

“Wise Men, the ancients believe, were a separate race, and to be born into this race it was necessary to develop the mind to a state of enlightened intelligence ... It is this larger and coming race that will someday inherit the earth ... the Golden Age will come again.”

From: The Illuminati Exposed

“Rather than obey the dictates of the real, and adjust himself to his reduced limits, late eighteenth-century man took refuge among phantoms; satisfying his nostalgia with the marvels offered by impostors and necromancers, he fled matter and denied its existence....A whole culture was collapsing.”

- A. Viatte, Les Sources occultes du Romantisme: Illuminisme-Theosophie 1770-1820

Adam Weishaupt “adopted the teachings of radical French philosophers such as Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) and the anti-Christian doctrines of the Manicheans. He was indoctrinated in Egyptian occultism in 1771 by a merchant of unknown origin named Kolmer, who was said to have traveled Europe in search of converts.”

- William T. Still, New World Order

“Brilliant and well trained by the Jesuits in the conspiratorial methods of access to power, young Weishaupt decided to organize a body of conspirators, determined to free the world from the Jesuitical rule of Rome and help humanity back to the pristine Christian faith of the hermetic martyrs. He is reputed to have been initiated by a German merchant named Kolmer, he had spent many years in Egypt, into a secret doctrine based on Manichaeism. Mayday of 1776, Weishaupt founded his own sect of the Very Perfectibles - better known as the Illuminati - with five original members, self-described as reformist libertarians, partisans of absolute equality.”

- Peter Tompkins, The Magic of Obelisks

“Adam Weishaupt, Professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt, conceived the idea of founding an order which, by mutual helpfulness, counsel, and philosophic discussions, would increase morality and virtue, lay the foundation for the reformation of the world, and oppose the progress of evil, all of which objectives were expressed in the name, 'Order of Perfectibilists' or 'Perfectionists', which was soon changed to 'Illuminati', which is best translated as 'intellectually inspired'. Modesty and humility seems to have been no trait of Weishaupt, for he was one of the first to attempt to fly with little knowledge of human aerodynamics. His ambition outweighed his judgement; his ideals were too refined for a rude world. Like many other promoters, Weishaupt sought the aid of Freemasonry to give his machine both propulsion and ballast. But it dragged Freemasonry down without helping Illuminism very much. He was too shrewd and subtle for his own good, though such qualities gave him headway for a time. Although he formerly belonged to the Jesuits, he secured admission to a lodge of Freemasons in 1777. Ironically, that was named 'Lodge of Caution'.”

“We are not informed as to just how Weishaupt became associated with Adolph Franz Friedrich Ludwig Baron Von Knigge, for the latter lived in North Germany, was of the nobility, and, after his initiation in 1773, showed little interest in Freemasonry. But noblemen were found in abundance in the most fraudulent orders in Germany claiming some Masonic connections. Weishaupt, in 1780, dispatched the Marquis de Costanzo to propagate Illuminism in the north and Knigge probably then first showed interest in the society. He became more and more enthusiastic as the plan was revealed to him, and, in 1781, accepted the invitation to visit Bavaria and receive full access to all of Weishaupt's materials. Knigge not only completed the scale of degrees but became a proponent of them, bringing to his aid the assistance of Johann J. C. Bode, a prominent German Mason. The order was at first very popular and attracted, it is said, some of the best men in Germany and some of the worst. It had 2000 names on its rolls and spread to France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Hungary, and Italy.”

- Henry Wilson Coil, Coil's Masonic Encyclopedia, 1961

“Unable in Catholic Bavaria to achieve this utopian goal by direct means, Weishaupt determined to work from within an existing organization: the Masonic order....By 1779, there were 54 members of the Illuminati, mostly young noblemen and clergymen, established in four Bavarian cities. Thereafter, with the help of a Masonic bookseller, Johann Bode, the order branched out through Southern Germany and Austria, and down into France and Northern Italy, intellectuals, such as Goethe, Schiller, Mozart, and Herder were attracted.”

- Peter Tompkins, The Magic of Obelisks

“Knigge, especially, was a highly religious and intellectual man and would have had nothing to do with that or any other order which was anti-Christian, yet, the vicious attacks and accusations by Baruel and Robison had great influence, and it was even charged that the Illuminati were themselves agents of the Jesuits, though the latter were opposing it in their usual secret manner. The Illuminati were extremely secretive, even identifying themselves and their chapters by assumed classical names; for examples, Weishaupt was Spartacus, Knigge was Philo, Ingolstadt, the headquarters, was Eleusis, Austria was Egypt, etc. Dates were given in a sort of cryptography.”

- Henry Wilson Coil, Coil's Masonic Encyclopedia, 1961

“The suppression of the Illuminati of Bavaria in 1785 created a tremendous furor whose echoes reached as far as New England, drawing George Washington out in support of the suspect American Freemasons. In fact the Illuminati proved to be the unwilling occasion for the birth of modern conspiracy theory. Wildly exaggerated accounts of their supposed wickedness and of the imminent peril which they represented for society were published in a great epidemic of pamphlets. Their secrecy, their insistence on recruitment of important civil servants, their concealment of the true aims of the society from all but a few highly placed initiates, combined to make them into the bogeymen not only of the German conservatives but of a wider European public. Four years later, when the French Revolution broke out, the mythical beliefs about the Illuminati of Bavaria were incorporated in a vaster and wilder conspiracy theory, which found room also for the Templars.”

- Peter Partner, The Murdered Magicians

“What is today called the conspiracy theory was born in the flood tide of books, pamphlets, and articles denouncing the Illuminati and linking them to an ever-lengthening list of other supposed plotters. The scope of the accusations is reflected in the title of one anti-Illuminati book, published in 1797: Proofs of a Conspiracy against All the Religions and Governments of Europe, Carried On in the Secret Meetings of Free Masons, Illuminati, and reading Societies, Collected from Good Authorities....The 170-year-old Proofs of a Conspiracy was reissued in 1967 by the John Birch Society, which apparently considered the Illuminati a clear and present danger.”

Just a brief comment until I have time to do more in-depth consideration of the article you've posted...

I don't know that conspiracyarchive.com is a good starting point for comprehensive explanations of such thing as secret societies, the Illuminati or any others. I've read some of their articles on a variety of conspiracy theories and feel that:

1. the site likes to use tabloidish writing to :oneeyedwinK grab the reader, to wit -- the first sentence uses the phrasing "Freemasonry's Luciferic New World Order Plans" without referencing an unimpeachable source or sources justifying the connection of Freemasonry to Lucifer to the NWO as this term normally is used;

2. the quotes/cites that conclude the article have no details on the authors so there's no way to know if the so-called experts were drawing conclusions based on detailed research or simply being sensational :gaba: for purposes of their own undefined agendas.

The Illuminati can be a difficult thing to study. Mainly due to the conspiracy nuts and right wing Christian groups. I am a member of the Theosophical Society and several Environmental groups. I have a link to one, the World Wildlife Fund, in my signature. Acording to the wackos, all are Illuminati groups. Some people say many of these orginizations are fronts for humans who are helping the alien invasion in which man will be supplemented with hybrids. Ultimately, one has to carefully sift through conspiracy theories. Some have grounds and some have none. The Skull & Bones Society, Bilderbergers, CIA, Trilateral Commission, and the Ordo Templi Orientis I can see. But many group suspicions are simply born from paranoia or crazed right wing religious ideals.

Yes, I put up that web site last week somewhere in here; where is it now? interesting

Inititates in some of these societies have little idea of what they are hooked up with. Many think they have just hooked into a very good business asscociation.

There is much nonesense in the literature about these groups. But- that does not mean that there is no basis in the existance of them. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

It is difficult for me to beleive that Bush, Blair, and a host of others get together and sacrifice babies and plot to enslave us all. Yet, it is easy to believe there is a "super-good-'ol-boy-network" where the haves take care of each other and take marching orders from those with the most gold.

I live in a not very poulated state in the US. Considering the small number of electoral votes we have, it is strange how many visits we get by presidential canadates and others. I suspect that one or more of the real power brokers of the world has a very nice place in the mountains, and others come to pay their respect or get advise. I don't believe they are all in an XF type conspiracy. I just think there are money people and others who pull strings from behind the stage.

Well people I like all this conspiracy stuff although I think the Freemasons are how do you say "Dirty"!!!!!.

Like the president always says: " I cannot confirm or deny these alligations at this time"

One of the jobs I work in is lead by a group of freemasons and unless you are one of them your potential growth in the company is a big fat Zero. They manipulate highering and growth potential to their exact needs.

To tell you the truth I think at least 50% of them are in "AA" and I'm saying this in a respectful way.

Any theories on this Group members? And if I have offended any members who are freemasons I apologize, but still think you are weird . :smokin:

Cult or not Cult?

it is an "old boys club" for sure.. they help each other out..

sometimes they go so far as to say something along the lines of " if I could tell you what is going on, you wouldn't believe it" but that is as close as any have come to telling a non member like me what the real beliefs are

find out who the most successful realtor, lawyer, banker etc. that you know.. It is a pretty safe bet that they are a mason or illuminati member.. it is at the very least a fantastic bussiness asocciation.. ha

Borderline red/blue state? Bush wasn't going to campaign heavily in Texas,

Kerry wasn't in New York, as we all know. I don't buy the whole

Illuminati/Freemasonry stuff beyond exactly that 'good ole boys' network, but moneyed puppeters? Absolutely. The Chinese have billions in US Treasury Bonds, the dollar is a joke and the have/have not gap is higher than ever, but that doesn't matter. I think we all know that those who would get paid will still get paid.

Cult or not Cult?


A religion is just a cult with more members. So just depends on how many

there are, methinks. :bigsmile:
