Do the Knights Templar exist today? I'm not talking about the Freemasons Scottish Rite, I am wondering if the actual Knightly Order is still in existence in secret or otherwise.

I am a Knight Templar.
It's York Rite, not Scottish.
There is also another group called Sovereign Military Order of Knights Templar or something... not Freemasonic, but I will look up the URL and post it.
You had me until you brought up the Priory of Sion, a hoax that was established in 1956, many centuries after the Templars...

The Knights Templar as you are thinking about do not exist and never did. In my opinion they were not a Christian order but an order steeped in Eastern mysticism that were funded to go looking for, and found, a secret relating to the church. When the Knights Templar disbanded after the French attack the order dissipated around the globe, some to Scotland (Freemasonry), some to Malta (Knights of Malta) some potentially to the Hospitallers and some to Portugal (Knights of Christ).
The Priory of Sion who I believe were a force behind the Templars still exist and hold/protect this "secret".
