Inquiring minds want to know, what are these secrets that
Freemasons protect so guardedly.
If we knew the real secrets I guess, there wouldn't be a
secret society, and I wouldn't get the chance to get discredited
by ATS lurker Freemasons.
The Grand Lodge at York is responsible for initiations of candidates into the seven Ancient Degrees and Orders of Craft Freemasonry. Ancient York
Lodges use secret masonic rituals or mysteries, called Royal York Rite. In these Ancient rituals we solemnly promise never to reveal any of the
secrets or mysteries of Freemasonry to anyone in the world who is not entitled to receive them. We are carefully shown ways for one Freemason to
recognise another Freemason. These recognitions help us to know a Mason and to avoid revealing our Masonic secrets, rituals or mysteries
The content and symbolism used to illustrate these rituals have been traced back to Ancient Egypt and beyond. Scholars, Scientists and Writers have
researched and written on the subject of Masonry, its symbolism and its inner meanings. Composers have contributed major works using Masonry and its
rituals for their inspiration. Mozart's "Magic Flute" is but one example. The painting shown above depicts a visit being made to a Lodge in
Vienna by Brother Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
I guess if these masons here on ATS revealed the real secrets, they would be "blackballed".
So, why are the Masons here. Even if we did find secrets, they wouldn't be able to reveal that we had.
So, even if we do find a secret, it is not past a mason to lie about it.
