Whether or not you believe in the Illuminati (I don't), this website is just an impressive looking bit of smoke and mirrors designed to get your money.
A *REAL* organization would have swiped the name back from Steve Jackson games a long time ago. It would have shut down Taylor Trump's business board/business website (called "the-illuminati.com" and it has nothing to do with conspiracies and isn't funded by any sort of huge super organization.) A real organization with power and money that was recruting would own their own servers, their own DNS, and their own ISP.
Heck, Steve Jackson does, and he's just the one who made the Illuminati game. So why can't a world-dominating organization do as well as a small gaming company?
answer: because it's bogus.
(and it's fooled a lot of other folks... don't feel too disturbed. You were right to be a bit skeptical.)
Start with the Eye of Horus symbol. It represented watchfulness & protection; Pharoahs from the Middle Kingdom afterwards used Horus as a "Guardian Angel" type of deity & incorporated symbols of Horus with statues of royalty. The traditional enemy of Set, who killed his father Osiris; Also, Horus represented righteous vengeance. The Eye of Horus symbol was also incorporated into mathematics, different portions of the cartouche representing different fractional values.

Exactly what is it about the pyramid, in & of itself, that makes it satanic? Pyramids have appeared on nearly every continent in a wide variety of cultures. Is it satanic simply because pyramids were invented *before* Christianity? Also, Cemi is right...Paganism is actually a "style" of religion (which covers a variety of specific belief-structures from different cultures but they're based on nature-worship of one kind or another), but satanism is an entirely different religion. Paganism is *older* than Christanity (and older than satanism too, because satanism is about as old as Christianity).

There have been some experiments concerning the channeling of energy with a pyramid-shape, but nothing very conclusive or actually *usable*. If it takes a month for a pyramid to sharpen a razor blade, I can do the same thing with 2 minutes & a whetstone...

The deal with Pyramids is that, like crystals, they are what are called "power channelers" or "energy funnelers" in that they supposedly channel beneficial energies in your direction.
