The "G" in Freemasonry stands for "Geometry". Nothing more, nothing less.
Wrong thats just low level Masons are told, G means Generative principle as stated by Albert Pike here:
"The Generative principle represented by the leter G initial of the name of the deity in the languages of the north and the meaning whereof is
generation." Morals and Dogma p632
Not true. There's no phallus worship in Masonry
Yeah all those Obelisks just happened to be shaped like that. What d you think people are that stupid?
The Egyptians built Obelisks to symbolize the phallus. Then Freemasonry just happens to be very Egyptian in nature, and has Obelisks everywhere
Freemasonry is prevalent like Washington DC, and in London.
Here is more proof from Pike:
"Unity can only be manifested by the Binary. Unity itself and the idea of Unity are already two. The human unity is made complete by the right and
left. The primitive man was of both sexes. The Divinity, one in its essence, has two essential conditions as fundamental bases of its
existence--Necessity and Liberty.
The laws of the Supreme Reason necessitate and regulate liberty in God, who is necessarily reasonable and wise.
Knowledge supposes the binary. An object known is indispensable to the being that knows.
The binary is the generator of Society and the law. It is also the number of the gnosis, a word adopted in lieu of Science and expressing only the
idea of cognizance by intuition. It is Unity, multiplying itself by itself to create; and therefore it is that the Sacred Symbols make Eve issue from
the very chest of Adam.
Adam is the human Tetragram, which is summed up in the mysterious Yod of the Kabalah, image of the Kabalistic Phallus. Add to this Yod [ Phallus ],
the ternary name of Eve, and you form the name of Jehovah, the Divine Tetragramn, the transcendent Kabalistic and magical word
Thus it is that Unity, complete in the fecundity of the Ternary, forms, with it, the Quaternary, which is the key of all numbers, movements, and
The Square, turning upon itself, produces the circle equal to itself, and the circular movement of four equal angles turning around one point, is the
quadrature of the circle.
The Binary serves as a measure for Unity; and the relation of equality between the Above and the Below, forms with them the Ternary.
To us, Creation is Mechanism: to the Ancients it was Generation. The world-producing egg figures in all cosmogonies; and modern science has discovered
that all animal production is oviparous. From this idea of generation came the reverence everywhere paid the image of generative power [ sexual
reproduction ], which formed the Stauros [ male organ ] of the Gnostics, and the philosophical Cross of the Masons.
Pike goes more in detail, Morals and Dogma 771-772
Mackey also refers to Freemasonry being Phallic here.
