Why isn't that the Luciferian idea of an androgenous being incompassing both good and evil , male and female, all in one, then divided to create the
dualistic world we live in? For someone trying to dispell myths you sure incorporate symbolism which keeps the fur flying.
Good and evil always coexist together. That doesn't necessarily have to be a Luciferian idea, no more so than the yin and yang complex. Take
Christianity, for example, which also seems to be the chosen religion of most Masons I have met. If you read Revelation, the end times are
prophesized and we are told that good will triumph over evil, but after 1000 years, evil "must be released into the world again for a little
The concept seems simple enough, even here. Good has to have its counterpart, even if the sole purpose is to measure your faith against temptation
and strife, such as the story of Job.
I've studied Freemasonry for some time, beginning mostly out of similar curiosities as those you share. My conclusions have led me to believe that
there is nothing strange to be found, at least not in the "evil or catastrophic" sense. There is no vast conspiracy. In my studies, I have come to
believe that the vile and preposterous nonsense being spewed about this organization all began with two things:
The Taxil Hoax
, and The Templar
. If you read through these, I believe you will come to understand how rumors can fly, even over the centuries. It is important to
note, however, that in both
instances, Masons and Templars alike were aquitted of any crimes. Leo Taxil made a public press conference
admitting he made everything up, and later the Roman Catholic Church made a formal public apology for what had been done to the Templars, who were
"innocent of any crimes against God".
I say this quite often, but I feel it is necessary for the validity of my posts: I am not a mason. I say this mainly due to the fact that most
accusers on ATS won't listen to members, making wild claims such as they are "ignorant to their own organization", or that they can't see because
they are not "outside the influence". I am here to alter that skewed viewpoint.
And just to add to the discussion from a bit earlier, I have a regular haunt in the Ancient Civilizations forum, and yet I spend a good deal of time
here defending Masons. Does this make me part of their agenda? Hardly. It just means that I recognize baseless, vicious attacks and stand up for
those being subjugated to them. Also, I find it funny that there are those that would accuse the masons of constant presence to defend themselves,
when those that they are arguing against are also
regularly here. The reason why anti-masons can have interest in other forums and discussions
is because they hit and run, leaving masons to defend their honor against wild claims that have nothing to back them up. Then another anti-mason
picks up where they left off. If I continually insulted you and your family, seemingly without end, would you not take up the fight? I mean
honestly? Masons remain here in numbers because it helps add validity to their points. Do you all realize how many non-ATS members see these threads
thousands of times a day? I discovered ATS myself while researching information on Nebuchadnezzar. If there were no one here to defend masonry
against those that would slander them, most might assume the accusations were correct, as there was no defense. Follow?
There is nothing wrong with having theories, but the best way to discover for sure is to question, not attack. Theories only become valid in a quest
to proove them, but if you decide from the beginning that your theory is fact
, then it is no longer a theory in the proper sense of the word.
It has degenerated to rubbish. And with no effort being made to support that rubbish, it will be quickly shredded before the masses to avoid a
similar attack later.
Only wish that actually worked.....
