Indeed. Well, I believe you're missing the major point of the Illuminati...
You see, the Illuminati is really an Anti-Christian group, if you had researched their history, not some "government takeover group" (though that is
the effective means they utilize to achieve their intended ends).
Back in the early church (I'm not certain of the exact date, of course.), a young catholic priest was frustrated with the crap the Church (Note the
capital "C".... heh.) was going through, the hipocracy, and how they continually shut down any forms of science that opposed the church's rule over
life. So, he quit the church, and formed his own group, the Illuminati (Literally, "the enlightened ones"). The Illuminati was a group of
scientists who actually had little against the church, in fact, many were devout christians, and in reality were merely trying to further science.
However, the Church, in those days, was very, very anti-science. They wanted to do away with it almost completely, except for that which furthered
what they taught (geocentric universe, single god, spontaneous generation... etc.). So they launched a campaign against the Illuminati, and sought to
wipe it out. Unfortunately, they suceeded--- to a degree. Many were burned as witches or something of the like, but it mostly taught the sect to
operate in secrecy. So, the Church worked on a new approach, a smear campaign posting them as devil worshipers, by making a play from their name-
"Lucifer." See any resemblance to the word "Illuminati?" Lucifer means "One who illuminates."
I lose most of my research here, because they seem to disappear withing other groups, like the Knights Templar (Which the Church eliminated! That
reeks of Illuminatus ties...), and the Masons (It seems likely that the Illuminati would lean towards a society that could help them achieve powerful
positions to further science and hurt the church... wouldn't it?). I assume they haven't died out, but who really knows? Likely the only ones who do
are those directly involved.
Alrighty, and so, my main point. The Illuminati is a pro-science, anti-church group. I doubt they've evolved much in their ambitions since their
creation, but I could be wrong. Anyway, if they were to go against anything... it would be the church. So, are priests being called terrorists? No,
they're just raping little boys. And if Michael Jackson is getting away with it, likely they will too. *wink* Besides, I see little wrong with them.
Dethroning the most powerful and corrupt organization ever sounds like a pretty noble quest. Power to ye!
