Well, we know for sure that they DID exist, we just aren't completely sure if they still do. I'd bet that there's an 85% chance that they do. The world is a messed up place right now, someone has to take the blunt of it all, and I blame the illuminate, despite what others believe.

Masonic Light what is your problem man? You must have an agenda to ignore the all the evidence about the conspiracy. The Illuminati controls all the money system, governments everything,everything the proof is so overwhelming I dare you to take me on about anything and I will easily prove you wrong. Im sorry but people like you make me so angry.
The Illuminati was originally a society of freethinkers and liberals called the Society of Perfectibilis, founded in 1774 at the University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria by Adam Weishaupt, a professor of Natural Philosophy. Both the college and the Bavarian government were under Jesuit control, and, in 1776, Weishaupt was fired for teaching "anti-Christian doctrines", i.e., Deist doctrines, separation of church and state, and secular education.
The Society was re-organized after this incident, and they changed their names to "Illuminati", indicating their allegiance to the "Age of Enlightenment" over what is known as the "dark ages", i.e., the period where all European life was strictly controlled by the Church and its dogma.
Influenced by the American Revolution, Weishaupt re-structured the Illuminati to be similar to Freemasonry and the American secret society called Sons of Liberty who were responsible for launching the Revolution against England (and most probably the Boston Tea Party).
The Jesuit Electorate soon infiltrated the Illuminati with secret agents, and many of their members were arrested for participating in revolutionary activities. Weishaupt fled to Prussia, where he wrote his memoires "In Defense of Illuminism", in exile.
Because the Roman Church wished to completely suppress freethinking societies, they launched a propaganda campaign distorting their agenda. For example, when the Illuminati called for separation of church and state, the Church called this "destruction of Christianity." When the Illuminati called for free, popular democratic elections, the Church called this "anarchy". When the Illuminati called for equal rights between men and women, the Church called this "destruction of the family."
Modern conspiracy theory concerning the Illuminati is a direct descendent of this Jesuit disinformation campaign. In reality, the Illuminati was short-lived, and was always poplulated by government spies who kept tabs on the order's leaders and their agendas.
Famous members of the Illuminati include Weishaupt, Baron Adolph von Knigge, the poet Johannes von Goethe, the alchemist and physician Comte de St. Germaine, and composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mozart dedicated his final opera, "Die Zauberflote" ("The Magic Flute") to the Illuminati, and to Freemasonry, of which he was also a member.

Infinite, who is this "JesusistheonlywaytoGod" cat? I see that you've quoted him, but I don't see any of his posts.
It looks like he may be involved in a conspiracy against me!

What is/are the Illuminati? I have heard about them, but I don't know where they came from, who they are, or what their agenda is. If you have more info please let me know or point me to a previous post about the subject.

On a more esoteric level. the theme of 'Illuminati' probably goes back to antiquity...someones reply said Atlantian roots?....I suggest that the Genesis story, in the era before the flood is one of the basis for 'Illuminati'
- - for the scholars in here, i agree that the Sumerian myths predated the Genesis Story....and the Nephilim/Raphia were latterday manifestations of the Annenukki of Sumer-Babylonian origins.
All these names for 'fallen angels' were/are the root cause of Illuminati=
keep searching, the answers in the 'journey'

I would recommend looking up David Icke for his research, also for the huge number of sources he has used himself.
Nobody knows who or what is at the top of the pyramid, but what is at the top, is the real Illumanti, and it's very evil.
