I do understand where you're coming from... so please don't read the following in a confrontational tone.
The symbol is a beehive and I did ramble on about the bee to begin with, however in order to understand the symbolism of a beehive you have to trace
it back to the beginning. The beginning involves the bee, it would have been impossible to understand the beehive symbol without going all the way.
In answer to your second point, one which I did consider myself at fist. " A beehive symbolizes storage of something valuable needed for living. End
The reason I got past that thought was because of one thing, WHY the beehive? Value to a bank is currency, gold, silver etc. Why would I use a beehive
and not a miner of precious stone? The pick axe, the mine lantern etc.
If the symbol of a beehive is just to represent storage of something valuable why does it appear on George Washington's Masonic apron? and countless
other places where such a meaning doesn't fit?
That being said, and I'm sure I haven't changed your mind, you are more than entitled to disagree with this. There is plenty of things I read that I
disagree with so I'm happy to agree to disagree.
