That's not what it says at all. It says "the Illuminatus! trilogy that spawned the Illuminati craze is both fictional and released after both the book and the film…" which is entirely true. Shea & Wilson's trilogy pretty much ignited the whole conspiracy movement that's still around 35 years after they published. They're almost singlehandedly responsible for the current misconception that the eye in the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill was an Illuminati symbol. (they, in turn, picked it up from the hoax William Guy Carr published in 1955, Pawns in the Game...)

They say the illuminati is bull# because it was invented by an American author in 1975?
