Yeah I saw the same show on the History Channel, called "Beyond the DaVinci Code". When it was going over the THEORIES, it claimed that Freemasons
were connecrted to Templars through Solomon's Temple, etc etc. But near the end of the show, when it basically stated the truth about all these
theories, it stated that there is no proof that masons are connected to templars because there is no proof that Freemasons built the temple, etc etc.
If we are talking of the same TV episode...
it went on to present evidence that a majority of the 'founding fathers'
were also freemasons
We're talking many signers of the Declaration of Independence...
and the freemason thought & moralistic behaviors were interlaced in the
formation of the Government as actual Christianity was not allowed into the foundation principals... i.e.: the Seperation of Church & State
so when boisterious people say we were founded as a Christian nation, they are wrong... our foundation ideology was based on freemasons which held
much of the same morals & character as Christian religion all the way back to the Knights Templar....
I'm certain Solomon's Temple had specially selected Masons, along with wood craftsmen, to erect the Temple & i'm sure it was supervised by the
Religious leadership directing the engineers... because the Temple would not ever be built by cussing, swearing, drinking, louts that went from
job-to-job as a career choice... no the artisans had to be disciplined & men of high moral order and merit to be building a holy temple...
Masons/Freemasons or its 'parent' would be the type of union & apprenticeship needed to supply the proper workforce even in Solomons' time 832bce
Traditional rabbinic sources state that the First Temple stood for 410 years and based on the 2nd-century work Seder Olam Rabbah,
place construction in 832 BCE and destruction in 422 BCE
