I have thought about joining for many years, but I never did. I like to think of myself as something of a maverick, and in general I am not a joiner. I did a lot of research on the masons, and many other orders, and I am in agreement with many of their precepts. I also believe we as a society would somehow be incomplete without them, and many great accomplishments would not have been possible without the lodges.
However, personally, I believe fundamental light is universal, accessible to all for the asking. And as I have grown older, or rather matured, by degrees I have become a citizen of the universe. What I am trying to say is my consciousness has grown, my awareness of my place in the universe. I understand the importance of community, but my head is in the stars, and if the universe grants me my wish, my feet will be there also.
Damn, enough about me now already! Soon I will reveal a trick used by all the great masters of the arts, the complete application of the measuring rod.

The Freemasons here are so obvious. We wouldn't trust a Mafia member saying that they had been in the group and knew it was OK. Any criminal organization or agency can throw people off the track by having members of it come out and say that the organization is a good one. That's why we should believe the mountains of evidence to the contrary, and not these suspicious current and former Masons that populate ATS.
EXTRACTS FROM "A DICTIONARY OF SYMBOLICAL MASONRY, INCLUDING THE ROYAL ARCH DEGREE," BY THE REV. G. OLIVER, D. D.
ACHILLES.--Perhaps some worthy people may stare when we point out Achilles as a Freemason.
What! we hear them ex-claim, is it possible that that fierce and ferocious man-slayer, nay, man-eater at heart, for he exhibited a strong propensity to cannibalism in longing to have devoured the dead body of Hector--is it possible that he could have been one of our philanthropic society?
Yes, we reply, such is the actual fact, and Bonaparte was one, too, in the highest degree. But, if you will not believe Homer, or us, believe your own eyes, if, indeed, you are a Mason.
Behold Achilles giving Priam THE HAND, when the latter is supplicating for the body of his slain son:
"Thus having spoken, the old man's right hand at the wrist He grasped, that he might not in any respect be alarmed in mind."

From the U2U's I've received, people are fed up with the gangs of freemasons on this site, using their fancy Latin and symbols.
And so am I.
The freemasons knowledge comes from books, but there is no true wisdom there.
Heck, Hiram Abiff was a bronze worker, not a mason. They can't even get that right.
The Freemasons are the minions of the anti-christ.
