Ahh I love watching the Masonry discussions as you have your usual characters popping in and becomes quite predictable as time goes on.
The secrecy behind Masonry is the driving force for the conspiracy. I'm sure masons have come accustomed to this being "the nature of the beast" so
The coincidences of certain people in powerful positions throughout history being masons added with the secrecy that is inherent in the "craft"
takes the conspiracy up a notch.
A mason in one sentence will decree he is bound by secrecy and in the next sentence confirm the truth from another horses mouth what that secrecy
was/is. The irony is thick lol....
goes a little something like this:
Mason: I cannot divulge the secrets of my craft, if you with to learn you must first join and you can only join if you believe in god.
Agnostic/Athiest: I just watched this discovery show about masonry and they said this is what the craft was all about...
Mason: (if its positive ) Why sure that is correct and its the truth!!
Mason: (if its negative) Why absolutely not, stop believing everything you see on TV!
So basically the only option one is left to find agreement with any mason is to just accept they are mundane nothing to see here "do gooders"..which
may very well be the case...
I honestly thought about joining masonry to see what all the hub-bub was about but I would be super pissed if it was really as mundane country club as
they would like you to think.
I'm on the fence with masonry, I see their symbolism everywhere and in everything, I see their checkered floors in almost every freaking movie there
is, along with the sun, eye, pillars JB etc.etc....I see their members running countries, presidents, politicians, etc....pretty impressive for some
mundane Sunday get together do-gooder club.
Pike and Crowley REALLY confuse the consensus on "masonry" even more...just so much conflicting stuff to "trust".
People probably wouldn't care about masonry if it was just a simple do-gooder lunch club...
but because we see your symbols on all our buildings, we see them in our movies, currency, stores, etc... then we see one of you lunch club do gooders
make it as president of the US, then another...and another....and holy crap another...surely there won't be ANOTHER!!
we start to care...
its hard to believe masonry is mundane when your accomplishments anything but that....
