Regarding the Illuminati:
Illuminati is Latin plural for Illuminated. Illuminated is a status. The Illuminati are people who have been enlightened; brought to light.
People confuse the Illuminati ( status ) with an organization created by Adam Weishaupt called the Illuminati.
Adam Weishaupt was born a Jew, somehow came to be raised by the Jesuits. Something happened in his final year of school that caused him to turn his
back on religion. Wonder what that might be...
He got into the occult, then joined the Freemasons. He recognized that many rituals of Freemasonry were in fact occult rituals. So he decided to skip
the trappings of Masonry, just do the occult thing straight up.
He founded an organization called the Illuminati.
A member of the Illuminati was crossing Bavaria, dressed as a priest. Got hit by lightning. Got dead. Got discovered.
His body was taken to a convent to be prepped for burial. Papers were discovered sewn into the linings of his clothes. These papers were a blueprint
to overthrow the monarchy.
The Bavarian government outlawed the Illuminati ORGANIZATION. But the STATUS of Illumination still exists. There are many Illuminated people. Ergo,
the Illuminati most certainly exist. Not the Illuminati organization created by Weishaupt, but the various people who are Illuminated.
I collect the dreary dismal books written by 33d degree Freemasons. Every 33d degree Freemason has written that Freemasonry is controlled at the top
by the Iluminati.
