I've registered here at ATS mostly because of my interest in "secret" societies, especially Fraternal organizations like the Masons, college
I take interest in these organizations as they offer non-religious systems of morality, which they teach to their members mostly through Ritual --
another one of my interests.
Yes, I am interested in collecting all the dirty little Ritual secrets of various societies, but that's not my chief reason for being here. Mainly, I
enjoy setting the record straight when it comes to such organizations.
Take the Masons, for instance. I know that some people -- Born-Again Christians are juts one group who happen to come to mind -- may take exception to
some of the teachings of Freemasonry, especially the idea that, no matter what a man's religion is, he can be a good person and a good Brother in
Masonry. The Masons do not, however, worship Baal or Satan or any other such nonsense. I often find myself dispelling such myths, both as they relate
to the Masons and as they relate to my Fraternity.
Anyway, yeah, that's why I've decided to join. I'm a skeptic through-and-through, so don't expect me to start commenting on alien abduction
