There are two COLUMNS in the lodge. Not obelisks. There's no pointy top... They're round, not square, etc... Huge difference.

Likewise, big difference between a triangle and a pyramid. Triangle has 3 sides and 3 points. We like 3.

I noticed you omitted the Pentagram.

Is it a Masonic symbol?
Not in the Blue Lodge (1st three degrees, which if I recall correctly, was the subject of this thread...)

The Scottish Rite degrees look at 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 pointed stars for different meanings. The 5 pointed star is explained in the 27th degree as representing a number of things... the Hermetic meaning of the 4 elements + spirit; and also the Vitruvian man... Leonardo Da Vinci's drawing of the guy doing jumping jacks in a circle.

What did I lie about? What specifically did I lie about? The unfinished pyramid? The All-Seeing Eye? The symbol of the Cryptic Masons? What?

Also note, just because you are using another mans opinion to support yours doesn't make it fact, nor is something automatically true if its in a book.

I've never seen the obelisk involved in any ceremony or lecture, so I'm curious to why you think its connected to Freemasonry.

The triangle does not represent the pyramid. Every member of a Council of Select and Royal Masters knows the meaning behind the symbolism.

We have two columns, but atop them are not the sun nor the moon. There are staffs that the Sr. and Jr. Deacons carry around that have the sun and moon on them.

Its no trouble nor should you be too troubled. Its good to talk about the symbols.

This is probably a jurisdictional difference. Around these parts, the Pentagram is a symbol in both the Second and Third Degrees.

Interesting. Yeah, it doesn't come up here. One of my old lodge rooms had 5 lights in the ceiling over the altar, but that's about the extent of it. (And when we moved buildings, the new one didn't have that adornment.)

I would have started a new thread, but my post count isn't high enough.

Is this a Scottish Rite 33, or something else on this custom BMW motorcycle?

A Scottish Rite eagle would have two heads, so I'm not sure what that is... The blog post on bikeexif doesn't mention the decal, and the article it links to on bikernet about the build doesn't seem to be there anymore.

I've seen that from time to time. It's often been lights over the stations of the "Starpoints" of the Order of the Eastern Star; or perhaps in some older Lodges it's where the 5 Obelisks of Baphomet were placed.
