Throughout the United States history and existence one conspiracy has remained intact for generations and generations which to this day remains a mystery. The conundrum question of whether the Illuminati validity of existence consists of facts or false proof. The conspiracies have shown proof of Illuminati symbols everywhere; but, it seems unknown whether these odds underlie reliability or only pure coincidence. Among the world, believers claim that the Illuminati owns the world, with power greater than imaginable. Illuminati today consist of, “One world government, in which every nation will be destroyed, to be led by the few powerful men of the Illuminati” (Melanson). There has been no secret society that has generated as much legend, hysteria, and disinformation as the Illuminati. Essentially to understand the Illuminati, background information of the history and involvement of the society must be obtained.
To begin, Illuminati first appeared in the 1760’s, created by a former Jesuit, Dr. Weishaupt. In the book Cosmic Trigger : Final Secret of The Illuminati, Wilson, the author, describes the beginning of the Illuminati, “On May 1, 1776, in Bavaria, Dr. Adam Weishaupt, a professor of Canon Law at Ingolstadt University and a former Jesuit, formed a secret society called the Order of the Illuminati within the existing Masonic lodges of Germany. Since Masonry is itself a secret society, the Illuminati was a secret society within a secret society, a mystery inside a mystery, so to say”. It is told that in 1785 though, the Illuminati were suppressed by the Bavarian government for plotting to overthrow all the kings in Europe and the Pope. This actually seems to be the one of the only fact about the Illuminati that all historians general agree truly happen. Some historians even believe Illuminati existed before 1776 and Dr. Weishaupt only revealed the secret society to the world instead of creating it. The Order of Illuminati has even been traced back to the Knights Templar, to the Greek and Gnostic initiatory cults, to Egypt, even to Atlantis. Illuminati appears over and over again in history; yet, impossible to find clear proof and evidence or any insight of the secrets it withholds. Regardless of whether Dr. Weishaupt created Illuminati or not, he has succeeded in keeping the secrecy due to the fact that no two students of Illuminology have ever agreed on what the secret or purpose of the Order actually was/is (Wilson). Illuminati has been around for centuries along with their beliefs.
To continue, Illuminati actually has a “religion”, more known as a belief system, called Luciferianism or Illuminism. Luciferianism roots from the word Lucifer, which is known by many as Satan, the dark ruler of the underworld. In the process of fully understanding the reasoning for using such a dark ruler as a name of a religion, one must first understand the history. In the Bible, a story is told about Lucifer, the highest of the angels; yet, he was not satisfied, and wanted more. He wanted to replace God and attempted doing this by creating the first rebellion against him. God quickly banished Lucifer from Heaven and sent him, along with one thirds of all angels away to the underworld. Lucifer, once the good angel of light became Satan, evil angel of darkness (The New Oxford Annotated Bible, Luke 10:18). This story explains how Illuminati wants the same Lucifer did, the most power possible, which gave them the idea to use Luciferianism as their beliefs name.
Moving on from the background of Illuminati, there reveals to still be signs of the secret society around till this day. Some modern history or conspiracies of the Illuminati prevails in World War I. This War according to Illuminati historians believes it was all an act of the secret society group. This proclaimed to be the beginning of the path to their “New World Order”, which was created in order to deliver Tsarist Russia into the ruling and hands of the Bavarian Illuminati. The hope in this plan was to have Russia disquieted as the “boogeyman” so that further steps could be achieved in advancing in world power. Then the World War II came along which is told be fabricated through the manipulation to the prevalent disagreements between the two groups of Germans, nationalists and political Zionists. The overall result of this war reveals in the expansion of the Russian territory of influence and the establishment of the State of Israel. Now World War III is in plan to result from the disagreement that Illuminati predicted would happen from establishing Israel which is the disagreement between the Zionists and the Arabs (Helsing, 145-178).
Even more modern actions of the Illuminati, recent author Bob Frissell describes the secret society as:
“Whether you call them Bilderbergers, secret government, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations or Illuminati– the name doesn’t matter. The secret government simply consists of the richest people of the world; and these magnates, approximately two thousand of them, have had out so-called governments tightly under control for a long time now. They decide who, when and where is voted; they determine when there will be a war and when there will not. They control the food shortage on Earth and determine the inflation rates of the individual currencies. All of these areas are in the hands of the Illuminati. They cannot control the force of nature, but whenever they can manipulate things to their advantage, they most certainly do” (Frissell, 177).
In many ways studied by diverse people, Illuminati reveal a desired mystery that everyone wants to discover. There are still many questions to whether all these linkages are doings of the secret group or just odds. Among the mystifying actions of the illuminati is there symbols are everywhere. On the one-dollar bill in the United States, the term “New World Order” is imprinted on the great seal. Also, above the pyramid on the back of the bill are the words, “Annuit Coeptis”, which is means our underling is crowned with success. The question among many people is whether these words have a correlation with the secret society. Also, on the lowest step of the pyramid, the number 1776 lies, which could possibly relate to the official date of the founding of America or the year the Illuminati was officially established. Ironically the American seal on the one dollar bill is actually the seal of the Bavarian Illuminati ("Forbidden Knowledge").
Regardless of the matter or believing or not, the history of illuminati prevails throughout history of the world; yet, the proof proclaims a challenge in proving. The facts and for sure history of Illuminati is impossible to be for certain due to there are so many conspiracies and myths about the mysterious society that has been around for centuries.
