What is the monthly cost after passing through probation?

(you said no question is too stupid to ask so I submit those)


That's one of those 'how long is a piece of string?' kind of questions. Entrance into our lodge costs $500 once your application clears the background check. Then the lodge dues are about $120/yr after that. Not high finance all things considered.

Hi OP,

I am intrigued to know what people within Freemasonary think of the whole "Freemasons want to destroy the world" strangeness,..

do you all sit around and have a good chuckle about it?


Honestly, in my experience it really isn't a topic for discussion as the very suggestion is at odds with what Freemasonry is all about. However, when certain individuals are locked onto a certain assumption about another group there is precious little that will disabuse them of this (to them) cherished belief. Best to leave them in their angry wilderness and move on with real life

I personally think it is stupid. We do have a good chuckle about it from time to time. Usually after Lodge business is taken care of....during dinner

what is the celestial lodge


The celestial lodge is allegory for the after life. It is not to be taken literally. There is no promise that after you die you go to a lodge in the sky. Agin, it is allegory

I stumbled into a lodge one night to ask for directions and saw three or four masons standing around shooting pool. Most people I know joke and talk while playing pool so I admired their concentration. As I left I was told that I could submit a petition. I had no idea what he was talking about. That was a long time ago. Two questions:

Is shooting pool a way to practice geometry or something?

What is the monthly cost after passing through probation?

(you said no question is too stupid to ask so I submit those)


In my Lodge $300 would be asked of you along with your petition. That $300 can be paid in installments. After you are Raised to Master Mason, my Lodge has monthly dues of $10...that equals up to $120 per year

What part of Freemasonry solely relies on faith?
and I'm not talking about the requisite particular that suggest an expressed belief.
I'm asking about the degrees as if a member is/was tried.

The term "free: deals with being a free man and having free will. The term "MASONRY' not "MASONARY" deals with the speculative form of building...not actual stone masonry. In essence, building yourself and spiritual edifice and not actual buildings

It's not the price that dictates freedom or not. Silly rabbit.

I'm failing to see what you mean.

As a student of Masonic tenets I do not rely on faith that I will prevail.
I learn from bits and pieces here and there. They're formed in unto ineffables and/or epiphanies.
My query is... do Masons of heredom become components of trials and tribulations which can not be met with their craft(s)... hence solely reliant on faith to prevail.

Silly rabbit eh? That's classic.
You got one out of a hat.

Interesting that you mention Quetzalcoatl as not only the feathered serpent, but the morning star god. Who else is/was the morning star? Venus/Lucifer, and Jesus.

Do Freemasons believe in a separate, albeit connected body, from our physical one, in which we may traverse this celestial lodge?

What happens to us when we die? It’s a question everyone eventually asks themselves at some point in their life. It transcends racial, social, political, economic and gender lines, making it the one question common to all human beings whether we like it or not. Yet ever since the first men and woman began pondering their mortality a hundred thousand years ago, the answer has eluded us. What does happen when we die? What becomes of our soul, our mind, our personality – our very essence? For that matter, do we even have such a thing as a soul, or is it all an illusion we have created to give ourselves a sense of permanence and the hope of immortality?


Now, are you quite sure you understood the previous question?

Quite sure. If you want the opinions of individual Masons that is a different story. Masonry, the Institution, teaches no such thing.

Ahem. Well, then I stand, set straight. Thank you, Augustus. I think it was I who had not understood what you had meant. Now I do. Have a star and a good day, sire. You are both a gentleman and a scholar.

I guess to expound on my inquisition, would a Tyler be one who even permits entry to walk across such a board, hmm?
