Got to call you on this one. The Illumanati were biased toward Science, not biased AGAINST RELIGION. Many Illumanati were Catholic, in fact. Problem
is Religion (as in a few off there rocker religious leaders, as happens at times) felt Religion was threatened by this Science and thus deemed them
heretics. We all know what happened to 'heretics' in those days.
Once Scientists and Thinkers started showing up dead the Illumanati (rightly so) became a bit upset with the then Rulers of Religion. (Think I would
be mad, too).
Initially the Illumanati was not Anti-Religion. It was, however, Pro-Science. Yes, you can be for one and not against the other. Look how Religion
takes anything Science finds and says "See, proof!" It's only when Science lacks proof or contridicts that Religion says "It's Faith, you just
have to believe!"
Science and Religion work hand in hand as long as they AGREE. It takes a professional and rational person to be both Religious and Scientific, and
plenty of these exists. It's the few that become so one sided and extreme that give each side a bad name.
Illumanati. Illuminated ones, given the light. Light is the Knowledge. This pre-dates AW and the Bavarian Illumanati, nor does this support the
suppossed infiltration of the Free Masons by the Illumanati.
