instrumental in having the seal placed on the dollar bill in 1935, had deep occult connections. It was a symbol of secret societies in Europe long
before anyone heard of the United States and it is awash with Freemasonic and secret society symbolism going back to the ancient world. Adepts believe
that when the capstone, the symbol of the secret societies, is lowered onto the top of the incomplete Pyramid, the Plan of the ages will be complete,
the Novus Ordo Seclorum will be established, and the world ruler will be installed.
Bzzt. Thanks for playing. The idea that an eye in an
unfinished pyramid was a symbol of the Bavarian Illuminati is a hoax that began around 1956 and was popularized by the conspiracy author William Guy
Carr in his book Pawns in the Game
. He doesn't cite any sources, and many other things in that book have later proven to be false, so it's
hard to take anything he claims seriously.
The truth is, if you do some historical digging, you'll find that there are no conspiracy theorists prior to Carr that make any claims connecting the
great seal of the US to either Masons or Illuminati. Go check all the usual suspects: Nesta Webster, Edith Starr Miller, John Robison, etc... it's
not there... it was made up, in the 50's.
