Nah, it's cool, like I said, it's just an Idea, so I can’t be offended at what people say, I'm just worrying about stepping on OTHER PEOPLES toes.
Very vague responses to your questions:
i) Just common knowledge of a secret society under the name of Freemason, but no REAL/HARD evidence supporting it existed, So some guys may have
decided to open their own "secret society" under the same name, leading people to think that they are/were the original deal.
ii a) Unofficial Records of Freemasonry can be dated back to the Old Testament, The "Masons" helped to Build (or was it Rebuild?) Solomon’s Temple.
ii b) I'm saying that perhaps the Freemasons existed (it doesn't matter how long), yes, records were taken, but because it's a secret society,
no-one ultimately took credit for their work, so a group of people got together, called themselves the Freemasons, Adopted their symbol, ect.... The
only difference being that:
They did not accomplish the tasks themselves, but took credit for it.
They did not make themselves secret, so people would then look up to them for 'their accomplishments'
iii) If I stated what I wanted to say in Answer ii clearly, this question should already be answered, but....
I guess it's not really in terms as REAL and FAKE, but rather, ORIGIONAL and lets just say 'GENERIC'.
From one of the "GENERIC" Freemason point of views, this MIGHT be what was going on:
There WERE rumours of a secret group, but no evidence, thus they might not exist.
So some people decided to "adopt" or "create" the group, because after all it is only a rumour, it probably doesn’t exist.
Thus they could easily, unquestionably take credit for unclaimed credit.
...I hope that that helped to clear what I’m saying, although it might not come across clearly...
In a nutshell, lets take the Illuminate for example. They adopted the Egyptian 'all seeing eye' symbol. But that doesn’t mean that they were around
back then...(but I’m not saying they didn't)
...This would be much like "Generic Freemason" adopting the "Original Freemason" symbol....AND NAME.....AND CREDIT FOR WORK....Etc
Yeah, i HOPE that cleared some up, if it didn’t, just hit me back.
LMAO!! About your analysis on me.... No offence but, Here is my own 'armchair psychologist / sociologist ' analysis of myself, (PS: I don't mean to
offend anyone with my above mentioned idea, or any ideas, But if ANYONE doesn't like what they read about ME from here on, YOU CAN GO FUDGE
Personally, I yes, i do like things to be mysterious, but only in context like 'the unknown' and stuff, not in terms of human development.
I also don't want something to be in (absolute) control, whether it be governmental, spiritual, secret or otherwise. If the way Human society was
based entirely apon how I want it, we'd all be in bushes, hunting and killing stuff with our hands and teeth.
What you said about having a Tame God, Personally, I don’t think that applies to me, but i believe it does apply to most others. Whether or not God
exists, the term "man created god" is very much true, people don’t like what they hear about god, so they change him, so they could live with
themselves better, for example:
Any Orthodox Christian will believe that they will ascend to heaven because they are good and Christian.
HOWEVER they refuse to believe that Only 144 000 people are 'allowed' to go to heaven, and they cant earn their way there, as they are pre marked by
They refuse to believe it, EVEN THOUGH its in St John's Book of Revelations (rev7 4-8)
Sorry, i got side tracked.
Opinions, thoughts, comments, critics?
