the pupil. If you look closely you can see rings in the eye, some complete and some only half circles. The whole thing is odd looking.

Ah, that would most likely be an attempt to deter counterfeit currency. The reason there are so many odd patterns and such along the borders, and now
the new bills have the new coloring and so forth, is so it is really hard to make a copy. Then again, it could have been the artist just wanted to
add more details.
As for the OP..
Yes, some of the founding fathers where Masons, and they added quite a bit of Masonic imagery into various Federal buildings, and into the
constitution its self believe it or not. Many of the ideas being put into action where Masonic philosophies in this enlightenment time period.
And yes, some of the founding fathers where Gnostic, and most some kind of Christian, and I believe there where a few Atheist as well.
All where well versed in history, and all believed they where apart of building an entirely new kind of government.
Where the OP goes wrong is in saying that they imported "Pagan" ideas of some "satanic" nature to purposefully pervert Christianity.
Which is highly uneducated ignorance.
The United States is NOT strictly Christian, however our laws are Western in nature, and thus, Christian Judaic in origin. Just because not all of
the founding fathers where strict Baptist does not mean their ideas are evil in any way what so ever, in fact, I would say the opposite.
So who cares if the founding fathers where Masons, Gnostics, Christian, Jewish or what have you, it makes no difference, they ideas where based on the
time period of Enlightenment, Freedom, Liberty, Freedom of Religion, civil Rights, and the people governing the people without a ruling elite
Also, as a side note, it is actually some times better to NOT post pictures when it comes to this subject, because all posters post the same,
non-Masonic pictures that 1. Have nothing to do with the Craft and 2. Have nothing to do with the topic.
