Freemasons' Hall 1927: London art deco


I joined Freemasonry out of a deep-seated yearning for truth and mystery. That yearning is something some people are just born with and others aren’t. Personally, I had a hunch that the allegories of Freemasonry were based on ancient astrolatry, not to be confused with astrology[1]. In other words, the allegories of Freemasonry are a play on the ancient mysteries about light (the sun) overcoming darkness.[2] I couldn’t just read and wonder about it, though. I wanted to confirm it for myself by becoming a Freemason. After years of studying it and becoming a 32° Mason, I’m comfortable asserting that to be true and feel that I’ve confirmed my hunch.

What I’ve learned.

There are allegories embedded within the religions of the world and Freemasonry describes them. [3] These allegories describe scientific truths and philosophic concepts and don’t fall within the realm of occult pseudoscience or superstition. The craft of Freemasonry is, therefore, a historical and scientific inference rather than a cult or religion. This is why Freemasonry asserts that it’s a “progressive science” and accepts people of all religions while claiming that it is not a religion itself.

Is there a conspiracy?

A handful of misconceptions, scandals, and hoaxes have made people suspicious of Freemasonry. Consequently, a lot of conspiracy theories have grown around that suspicion. From everything I’ve witnessed as a Freemason, there is no grand conspiracy, though. The whole notion that the so-called “Illuminati” or Freemasons are behind everything is absurd and intellectually lazy. Life isn’t that simple and corruption of the heart and mind aren’t exclusive to any one institution but are simply a part of humanity. Freemasonry is just a fraternity and it’s best suited for nerds, not evil doers. If you’re looking for evil doers, investigate the misconduct of corporations and the military-industrial complex.

Are there any secrets?

Hundreds of years ago, Freemasonry was secretive out of a necessity to avoid persecution and therefore, contained secrets relative to its potential persecution. In today’s world, Freemasonry doesn’t really have any secrets. There are some things you won’t find online, but there aren’t any real secrets. In fact, I believe Morals & Dogma by Albert Pike and Stellar Theology & Masonic Astronomy by Robert Hewitt Brown cover most of it. Those two books describe practically everything there is to know about the esoteric side of Freemasonry.

Why I left Freemasonry.

I left Freemasonry because it’s an outdated order and it’s long overdue for serious changes. Hundreds of years ago the teachings of Freemasonry were revolutionary and progressive, but today they’re far from it. In fact, you could argue that many of the regulations are counter-productive to progression and equality. For example, women still aren’t allowed in Blue Lodge Freemasonry and in many areas, neither are African Americans. As someone who’s taken a personal oath to truth and reason, I can’t condone such regulations. Of course, Freemasonry isn’t an intentionally racist or sexist institution, but it’s behind on the times and that’s the problem.

    This is a barefaced lie or someone that never decended into the higher degrees – clever disinformation.

    “GENTILE masonry blindly serves as a screen for us and our objects, but the plan of action of our force, even its very abiding-place, remains for the whole people an unknown mystery.” (The Protocols of Zion, 4:2)

    “Masonry, that immense association, the rare initiated of which, that is to say, the real chiefs of which, whom we must be careful not to confound with the nominal chiefs, live in a strict and intricate alliance with the militant members of Judaism, princes and imitators of the high Cabal.
    For that elite of the order–those real chiefs whom so few of the initiated know, or whom they only know for the most part under a nom de guerre, are employed in the profitable and secret dependence of the cabalistic Israelites.

    And this phenomenon is accomplished thanks to the habits of rigorous discretion to which they subject themselves by oaths and terrible menaces; thanks also to the majority of Jewish members which the mysterious constitution of Masonry seats in its sovereign counsel.”—Gougenot des Mosseaux in Le Juif, le Judaisme et la Judaisation des Peuples Chretiens, Paris, 1869.

    The Jewish Guardian admitted openly on 12 April 1922: “Freemasonry is born out of Israel.”

    The following could be read in the French masonic magazine Le Symbolisme (July 1928): “The most important duty of freemasonry must be to glorify the Jews, which has preserved the unchanged divine standard of wisdom.”

    The high-ranking freemason Dr Rudolph Klein stated: “Our rite is Jewish from beginning to end, the public should conclude from this that we have actual connections with Jewry.” (Latomia, No. 7-8, 1928)

    A speech at the B’nai B’rith convention in Paris, published shortly afterwards in The Catholic Gazette (London) in February 1936 and in Le reveil du peuple (Paris) a little later, stated: “We have founded many secret associations, which all work for our purpose, under our orders and our direction.

    We have made it an honour, a great honour, for the Gentiles to join us in our organizations, which are, thanks to our gold, flourishing now more than ever. Yet it remains our secret that those Gentiles who betray their own and most precious interests, by joining us in our plot, should never know that those associations are of our creation, and that they serve our purpose…”

    “Freemasonry is a Jewish establishment, whose history, grades, official appointments, passwords, and explanations are Jewish from beginning to end.”—-Rabbi Isaac Wise

    The Jewish Tribune newspaper, in 1927, in an editorial, stated: “Freemasonry is based on Judaism. Eliminate the teachings of Judaism from the Masonic ritual and what is left?”

    Ray Novosel, writing from Australia in 2004, states: “Zionist world leaders, men in influential positions with the various Masonic organizations everywhere, have worked “hand in glove” for a universal world revolution, which will bring in the One World Church and a One World Government. Many Masonic Lodges are exclusively Jewish, as are the controlling B’nai B’rith Lodges —the mother of the infamous and very dangerous Anti Defamation League (ADL).”

  • Interesting and well done. However, what Freemasonry lacks is not different from what society lacks in its science, education, philosophy, art, religions et al… And that is SPIRIT. Instead, what it takes in- as a form of substitute -is egotism and unbalanced materialism. And, of course, this is no different from what orgs representing the areas that I listed are missing. Unfortunately, people do not see this, whether they be involved in Masonry or not. What I find particularly interesting is that the churchgoers point the collective finger at Freemasonry and they operate the same way..a religion of Body and soul; void of spirit. Did this stem from the 869AD pow-wow in Constantinople? Methinks. Regardless, Freemasonry should know better, but apparently does not. Ergo, I can understand leaving a Craft behind that is itself left behind. And likewise with a church…and science and education…the list goes on.

    And all of these people who believe they know better- who have no connection to Freemasonry -are insane. They have no idea what they are talking about. They can’t even explain their own religion; have no love for goodness…just toss verses and page numbers around, as though they know better. They are pathetic!

    Regardless, I agree with the author of this article that Freemasonry is not the correct path, today. Likewise, for the church that works only with the exoteric and knows not the spirit.
