No, i don't think so.
There are many rites of Freemasonry, and not all have 33 degrees. With that out of the way, what is the point of these societies even hiding messages
in AAA films? I don't see a point to it, really.
And while on this topic, can you tell me just what ideals general Zod shares with Adam Weishaupt? I haven't actually seen the movie, but am intrigued
as to what specific ideals are presented...
It is true that Adam Weishaupt was a freemason, but he actually resigned from the craft before forming the Bavarian Illuminati, if my memory serves me
right. I also wouldn't say that all original members were (ex)freemasons, unless you have proof to back that up.
Now, from what i gather, Weishaupt did indeed recruit freemasons into the Illuminati. I also recall reading that Weishaupt also ordered some of his
associates to 'infiltrate' the Freemason lodges...i am not completely sure on the veracity of that, but i do know that many Illuminati members were
Now we get to the interesting stuff. Why would the Illuminati operate solely within the Freemasons, if Weishaupt was comfortable with it being apart
from the former? Maybe he wanted to consolidate power...but if he did, he would be out of that structure, considering he himself was not a high level
To address your modern Illuminati/Freemason theory - I can see the possibility of freemasons continuing to practice Illuminati ideals, after the fall
of the Bavarian Illuminati. That could explain any possibility of current Freemasons continuing to practice the ideals of the Bavarian Illuminati.
With that said, we don't have any evidence to suggest that Illuminati practices are continuing to thrive within Freemasonic lodges...let alone be
passed down through degrees or the like.
Me, personally. I believe that the Bavarian Illuminati may have survived the edict(s) put against itself and other societies like it. They were quite
an influential society, and given that the Freemasons survived the restrictions, i see no reason as to why the Illuminati couldn't operate privately,
and thus, survive as well. The truth is, we may never know.
With all this said, i am willing to say that there is no war between the Illuminati and the Freemasons....
I am also willing to say that the Bavarian Illuminati no longer exists (or, if it does, not in its original and intended form)...
