REAL TRUTH ABOUT
PICTURED ABOVE: A
SYMBOL THAT HAS ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ILLUMINATI OR EVEN
I first heard about the
Illuminati from a casette tape while I was 14 years old visiting some
relatives in baltimore, MD in 1983. Unbeknownst to my family, I was
secretly a solitary Wiccan. When I heard one of John Todd's lectures on
tape, I was blown away! Far from being turned off by the story...I
wanted to seek them out to join! Witches who had piles and piles of
money and secretly ruled the world? Hey, sign me up for that!Booyeah!
In fact, what a lot of Fundie Christians don't realize is, people like
Mike Warneke, John Todd, et al, actually make the world of the occult
sound glamorous and powerful with their fake testimonies! But I
As I grew older though, I
realized there was no Illuminati (well, at least not anymore). This was
confirmed one day when I found a copy of The todd
Phenomenon in a used bookstore. The
Illuminati has been a favorite subject of conspiracy writers from Texx
Mars (who’s an Anti-Semite) to Jack Chick (who’s anti-Catholic) to
David Icke (who's anti-Lizard). Exactly who is behind the Illuminati
depends on the conspiracy nut who’s telling the tale. Anti-Semites say
it's the Jews (the Rothschild's in particular, they’re always a
favorite target of Jew haters), while others say the Roman Catholic
Church, or the Freemasons (sometimes even including the American
founding fathers!), or the Communists, or Wiccans, or Satanists, or The
Trilateral Commission, or even the Mafia, or any combination of the
aforementioned, among others.
The Illuminati is sort of like extraterrestrial aliens that pilot
U.F.Os...lots of people claim to have seen them and believe they exist,
write detailed books about what they do, explain how they’ve shaped
history, make claims about what their plans are for humanity...but no
one can offer a single shred of evidence to prove they’re real. Oh, and
speaking of U.F.O.s, British soccer player turned New Ager, David Icke,
says the Illuminati are actually Reptilian Aliens! Help! Call Dr. Who!
"Sorry mate. Unless the Daleks or the Cybermen are behind the Illuminati, don't call me."
Yes, Icke's theory is that the
Illuminati are run by a race of subteeranean alien reptiles that live
beneath the Earth's surface. That's actually similar to a 1970
storyline from Doctor Who, by the way (Doctor Who and The Silurians with
Jon Pertwee). Obviously all these things are bigoted and crackpot ideas
created by bigots and crackpots, and should be dismissed. So now you're
probably saying, "But why do we keep hearing about the Illuminati then
if it no longer exists?" And we'll get to that.
Pictured above is the actual cover of the final monograph the highest
members of the AMORC's "Illuminati" recieve. If you're thinking it
tells you the best way to sacrifice virgins to Molech or something,
well, you'd be very disappointed. It basically consoles the reader (who
has by now spent several years and probably a few thousand dollars)
that while he may not feel all mystical, and all powerful and occulty
and stuff, never fear, that's just normal! (In reality, it's normal
because there's no such things as superntaural powers!). What they're
really saying is "Thanks, sucker!".
While occultists seem love the (actually now non-existant) Illuminati, the conspiracy nut crowd has a much less favorable view of the it, however. There is a mountain of myth surrounding this now extinct order, but we can determine the truth.
WILL THE REAL ILLUMIANTI PLEASE
Once upon a time, there was indeed a REAL Illuminati! But, it had
nothing to do with witches, "Zionism", or even alien reptiles, or
anything like that.
Bavarian Adam Weishaupt (1748-1811) was the founder of the short lived and extremely over-rated Order of the Illuminati. Many occultists claim (falsely) to be in contact with the Illuminati, as you've just read.
Born of a Jewish family, Weishaupt was educated in a Jesuit school. When Pope Clement XIV supressed the Society of Jesus in 1773, Weishaupt became a professor of canon law...a position that was held exclusively by the Jesuits until then. This caused the Jesuits to despise Weishaupt, and there was animosity between the them from then on.
started the Illuminati in May of 1776. The Illuminati was actually more
concerned with politics than the occult, and Weishaupt was actually an
atheist.The structure of
the society was an elaborate network of spies and counter-spies. Each
isolated cell of initiates reported to a superior, the identity of whom
they did not know. There were some German Masonic orders, such as The
Order of Strict Observance, which had similar structures, so this may
have partly been where Weishaupt got the idea. He also seems to have
structured the Illuminati partly on the model of the Jesuits, even
though he wasn't fond of them.
Weishaupt was a low degree Mason, and he used Freemasonry to recruit
other members. The Masonic-like rituals it used by the order were
probably just a smokescreen for their subversive political activities.
While the Illuminati was Masonic-like, and some Illuminati
members were Freemasons also, the Order of The Illuminati doesn’t
appear to have been an actual branch of Freemasonry.
At best, it's possible some of the ideals of
the Illuminati limped on. The French revolution appears at first blush
like the handywork of the Illuminati. They did get rid of the Monarchy,
and they de-Christianized the country and replaced Christianity with
The Cult of Reason. However, both "successes" were short lived. The
King was replaced by Emperor Napoleon, and proved to be worse
than Louis the XVIever was. Napoleon's Nephew,
Napoleon III, even created the animosity between Germany and France
that eventually lead to WW1. The price of the Cult of Reason was the
lives and freedom of thousands of Christians. In 1793 it was
challenged by Robespierre with his Deistic "Cult of The
Supreme Being". By 1795, some of the laws against Christians were
eased, and by the early 1800s, the persecution of Christians had
ceased, and the Church returned.
Pictured above: Actual picture of the Illuminati in action!
You may even come across this or that webpage claiming to be the
website of the “Illuminati” created as a joke or by someone living in a
dream world. They too, can be dismissed, and have no connection to
Weishaupt’s short lived Illuminati other than wishful thinking. Even
though the legend has gotten a lot of mileage, there is no “real”
Illuminati around today. It’s the stuff of crackpots and hatemongers,
just deal with it. Adam Weishupt’s dream of world domination
never materialized and he died a failure.
So now you're asking "OK, then why do I keep hearing so much about the Illuminati then if it died out 200 years ago?" That's a good question...and there's a simple reason: Old legends die hard!
Jesuit Catholic Priest named Augustin Barruel came along and wrote his own conspiracy theory tome titled Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism in 1797. In it, Barruel claimed the Illuminati, Freemasons, and others conspired to create the French Revolution. In 1798, John Robison, inspired by Barruel's book, publised the ironically titled Proofs of A Conspiracy claing the Illuminati had infiltrated American Freemasonry. He wasn't a Freemason, and it's ironic the book only offers anecdotal evidence and speculation...no actual proof. Nevertheless, it caused a few people in New England to be worried, and is still being read by conspiracy nuts today.
In 1798, anti-mason George Snyder wrote a letter to Washington claiming
to be a minster, and asked him what he thought of Robison's book. Here
you can read the edited version conspriacy nuts cite, and te complete
So Washington actually believed that the doctrines of the Illuminati...not the actual Illuminati itself...may have come to America, but that the governemment and the Masonic lodges were still untainted. Conspiracy nuts edit those details out to make it sound like Washington believed the Illuminati had already taken over the United States!
Oh, and everyone knows Washington was a Mason. So to try to
clear Washington, conspiracy nuts have
started saying, "Um, well, he was only a 3rd
degree Mason", as if that changed anything. Their reasoning
is, since Washington was "only" a Master Mason, he wasn't part of the
supre secret Illuminati devil stuff. What they're ignoring is,
originally Masonry only had the first 3 degrees, and both York and
Scottish Rites share them. In the minds of many masons, the first 3
degrees were the only ones that actually mattered.
Then there's Thomas Jefferson's letter about the Illuminati. The
conspiracy nuts, once again, edit the letter to make it sound
like Jefferson supported the Illuminati. In the collumn in the left is
what the nuts peddle. What Jefferson actually said is on the collumn on
So clearly Jefferson was actually opposed to the Illuminati, and
thought Masonry was actually in opposition to
the Illuminati, rather than part of it! He seemed to think the
Illuminati was trying to subvert Freemasonry. Gosh, you don't think
conspiracy theorists could be just a bunch of fanatics who twist the
truth and lie to support their insanse theories do you???
Then along came a nut known as Edith Starr Miller, a.k.a., Lady Queensboro. She wrote an anti-Semitic conspiracy book titled The Occult Theocrasy borrowing heavily on Taxil's spurious writings! She's the dingbat that invented the famous fake quote by Albert Pike about Masons worshiping Lucifer. She gives absolutley no references for her material...because she made it up. She spent most of her life in and out of insane asylums, where she finally died in one.
Then we move on to the 1970's, and a new generation of lunatics and liars were ready to pick up where Queensboro and the rest left off. Have you ever known someone who told you a bunch of crazy crap about themselves you know couldn't possibly be true, but you never confront them about it mostly because they're amusing to listen to? If so, that will give you an idea about this next ex-Illuminati member, John Todd, a.k.a., Lance Collins.
John WayneTodd, (1950-2007) A.K.A., Lance, Collins, John Todd Collins,
Christopher Kollyns was a fake ex-Wiccan who eventually became a real
Wiccan, then an ex-Wiccan again, then a real Wiccan again. So at least
he kept busy. Collins is the reason so many Fundementalists (and thus,
everybody eles) is talking about the Illuminati.
There were other super duper evil bad guys in the Democratic Party
besides Carter, it seems. On one tape, Todd recounts a human sacrifice
he once attended while in the Illuminati that was presided over by none
other than Senator George McGovern himself! In fact, McGovern's
likeness was used for a Satanic High Priest performing a sacrifice in
the Chick comic The Broken Cross because
of Todd's claim.
Nevertheless, Todd insisted the character Barnabas Collins - -a vampire- -was based on his grandfather, whom he calls “Francis Collins”. Um...OK. Todd claimed his real name was Lance Collins, perhaps to cloud his real history, or it may have been part of his mental delusion, or both.
Todd claimed that when he achieved the “highest level of witchcraft”,
Grand Druid, he was told it was all just a front for Satanism by
Raymond Buckland himself (who of course never met Todd and is always
saying Wicca isn't Satanism like every other Wiccan) , and was made a
member of the all powerful Illuminati. He was placed in charge to
oversee the “occult activity, drug sales, and politics” of 13
states...although he never mentioned which 13 states that was. That was
one Hell of an accomplishment for a teenager considering he was
claiming he was out of the Illuminati by 1972, when he was
22! that means everything that Todd claims happened
to him - -being on all these councils, studying witchcraft and the
occult, giving $500,000 bribes to government officials, being initiated
into higher levels of the Illuminati, traveling all over the USA and
the rest of the world, etc., all happened before he was 22! That
is, if you ignore the fact he was actually a Pentacostal Christian
storefront preacher by age 18, in which case that means he must have
started in the Illuminati when he was a toddler, or something.
Apologists (and yes, even a nutcase like John Todd has apologists) cite
his “predictions” as proof that his impossible story is true. Some
low information human once asked me, "Then how do you explain
everything Lance Collins predicted came true if he was fake?" Um,
that's easy... they didn't come true! Correct me if I'm wrong...but did
Armegeddon happen in 1979? Did Jimmy Carter turn out to be the
Anti-Christ? Did all the world's economies completely colapse by 1980?
No? Are you sure? OK then. The
supporters simply ignore these glaring failures. When Todd predictedabout
things like the price of gas going up, coal miners strikes, etc., Todd
simplystated that he
predicted such events sometimes years after these
events happened! It's
easy to predict stuff after it
happens! Ironically, that's a trick some occultists use!
man walked up...he passed one tract out and gave it to me...the tract
I read the tract and thought, 'Hmmm, this guy is pretty smart! He saysBewitched was put
on by the witches. Well, I knew that. My foster mother was one of the
producers! I practically grew up on the set.”
And chances are this
Satanic occult breakfast cereal is also based on one of his evil
imaginary witch/vampire/Satanist thingee ancestors as well, because
it's on TV too! I bet that free "Monster Bike Spinner" also doubles as
a tool to sacrifice virgins to Molech, or something!
There's also plenty of other innacuracies and questionable claims in Todd's story. On what is now known as "Tape 3b", Todd claims all politicians are the highest level of Scottish Rite masons, "The 35th Level" belonging to "The Warriors Block" . There's no such thing as "The Warriors Block" of Freemasonry. Scottish rite only goes up the 32 degree, with an honorary 33rd degree that only such evil people as Ernest Borgnine get for all the charitable work he did for veterans.
Pictured above: On the left,
super duper evil 33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason and probably
Illuminati member, Ernest Borgnine! On the right is Joe Flynn, who
wasn't a Freemson, because he was Roman Catholic...but...oh
Hell, they're evil too, according to Jack Chick! We'll just
say Joe Flynn was an Illuminati too. Sure, they may seem harmless in
this picture, but I'm pretty sure they're actually arguing about the
correct way to sacrifice virgins to honor Molech. They're evil! EVIL I
Can't you just picture Borgnine plotting the over throw of the governments of the world and force everyone to worship Satan? No? Good for you, then you're not a moron.
Christians began denouncing Todd and distancing themselves from him
once he had been exposed as a fake with the publication of The Todd Phenomenon.
But not everyone got the message that Todd was a nut-job...this was
before 24 hour media and the internet. Tapes made of his lectures still
circulated among Fundamentalist Christians well into the late
1980's...even after Carter failed to be the anti-Christ and Armageddon
didn't happen in 1979.
Texxe Mars published a series of books on the Illuminati, but he was
shunned by Fundementalist Christians after his writings turned
anti-Semitic. End time Televangelist Jack Van Impe is one of the
biggest promoters of the Illuminati myth. He doesn't buy into the
anti-Semetic aspects of it, though. In fact he's even denounced Texe
Mars on his show.
The myth of the Illuminati has made it into pop culture. The 90's
syndicated cartoon Gargoyles featured a modern day Illuminati, but were
protrayed as being good guys. Several hip hop artists have mentioned
the Illuminati in their songs, instantly causing conspircy nuts to
brand them as illuminati members. Right, Nicky Minaj is part of an
international Satanic conspiracy when not being a judge on American
Idol. GIVE ME A BREAK!
The modern myth of the Illuminati...like all conspiracy
theories...doesn't make a lick of sense. We're told the Illuminati
secretly runs everything...yet wants to take over the world. If it
already runs everything, then it already runs the world! Hitler was
supposedly a member of the Illuminati, and so was Joseph Stalin...yet
they fought each other for control of Europe during WW2.The Illuminati
controlled the USA and the USSR...yet the two spent half a century in a
Now, if the Illuminati controlled the USSR, wouldn't it have been easier to not have also created Nazism and just alloed the Communist to take control of Europe? When you point out such glaring contradicitions to a believer, they'll just say "That's because they're trying to distract us from the big picture!"But what could be so huge that they needed World Wars I and II to distract us???
Blinky the Baphomet says,
if I know. But of course I'm just a goat head inside a star, so
international conspiracies aren't my forte'"
Conspiracy theories always rely on allegations they can never prove.
For instance, there's no evidence at all "Zodiac Productions" ever
exsited, much less that it owned RCA records, as Todd claimed. There's
also no record John Todd was ever a green beret (and why the Illuminati
would risk their most powerful member getting killed in Vietnam,
anyway?). But when confronted with that, conspiracy nuts will roll
their eyes and say "Of course there's no record of it...they covered it
up!"And thus the very lack of evidence becomes evidence!
For some reason the Illuminati has gone to all this trouble to become (unsuccessfuly)secret. Yet for some reason, they leave clues all over the place, it seems. Think about it...if you were going to all the trouble to create this super secret orginization, would you have put clues on something that changes hands by hundreds of millions of people each day?
Pictured above: The absolute worst hiding place for a super duper secret conspiracy symbol, ever!
So just what is that weird eye thingee on the pyramid? Well, it's one
half of the two sided seal of The United States of America, adopted by
the founding fathers in 1782. It has nothing to do with the Illuminati,
nor Freemasonry. It was actually created from standard references on
heraldry like Cesare Ripa's "Iconologia or Moral Emblems," which you
can find online at:
There is an actual metal seal in the Capitol building in Washington D.C. which used to emboss documents. When a law is passed, it's gets imprinted with the seal to make it official, just like when you get something notarized by a Notary Public, or a corporation (such as a Church) affixes a corporate seal to a document.
ANNUIT COEPTIS, NOVUS ORDRO
The official motto of the United States of America which can be found
on The Great Seal of The United States, created in 1782 by founding
father Charles Thomson. The first part of the phrase," Annuit
Copetis", means “Our undertakings have been
approved”. This refers to the Founding Father's belief that
God Himself had approved of the founding of The United States
America. That's right...the founding fathers worsiped Jehovha instead
of Lucifer! Imagine that!
This too, has nothing to do with the Illuminati. The phrase is taken
from a line from a poem by the Roman poet, Virgil, “The great
order of the ages is born afresh”. It was intended to signify
the start of the new American era. Virgil's poems were seen by Medieval
Christians as prophecies for the coming of Christ, and the Founding
Fathers may have known of this or even believed this as well. The
phrase certainly has nothing to do with Satanism or the Illuminati.
Conspiracy nuts really strain to make everything on the seal as proof
of a connection to the Illuminati. Some people point out the number
"13" is used many times on the seal. Gee, you don't suppose that could
have anything to do with the fact that there were 13 colonies during
the time of the American revolution do you??? I've even read statements
online where conspiract nuts point out the 1776 is in Roman numerals.
Right, because everyone knows Roman numerals are Satanic. You'd never
find Roman numerals in a Bible, would you? (Click to enlarge)
Wait a minute! That's a 1611 King
James Bible! D'oh! The evil Illuminati must have built a time machine
and went back to 1611 so they could use their evil Roman numerals in
Seriously though, there's nothing evil/Satanic/having anything to do
with the Illuminati about the Great Seal of The United States. Period.
End of story. Get an effing life if you think otherwise. Now
if those evil dollar bills still frighten you, send them all to me! In
fact the ones with Ben Franklin are the most evil, so just send me
those. In fact, you can send them eletronically so you don't even have
to touch the evil things!
And finally, if you don't believe in their coo coo tinfoil hat horseraddish, they'll just shake their heads and say "I guess they got to you, huh?" Right, me and Nicki Minaj. lol Well, no one got to me. I just like the truth. It may have taken me a while to arrive at it, but here I am. The bottom line is that no one can persuade you to stop believing in the Illuminati bullcrap as long as you really want to believe in it. Belief in something as impossible as the Illuminati conspiracy is obviously ridiculous.
unless you were a naieve 14 y.o. Wiccan. So there you go.
You may live in an imperfect world but the frontiers are not closed and the doors are not all shut.
