Freemasons and the Illuminati

         The Illuminati and the Freemason Societies were founded centuries ago and have quite a long history. In some ways they are quite similar, but there are also distinct differences between the two groups. Both are made up of highly intelligent people, but due to the secret nature of the societies, very few people know who these members are. It is common knowledge though, that both the Freemasons and the Illuminati had played a role in science and politics through the ages.

About the Illuminati

         Founded in Europe in the eighteenth century when the Age of Enlightenment was rampant in all countries, the Illuminati is a term used to describe the secret society groups that developed during this time. The meaning of the word is “enlightened” and the majority of the members of these societies were intellectuals with an active interest in scientific methods and in the government of their countries. Rumors still abound about the Illuminati that it still exists and is working to change the politics of the world.

About the Freemasons

         The Freemasonry brotherhood is older than the illuminati having been formed in the seventeenth century. Each group is independent of the other and hold their meetings in locations they call Grand Lodges. Even though they believe that there is a Supreme Being and in the society’s motto of “Brotherly Love, Relief and Faith”, the members of the Freemason society are not required to follow any particular religion.

How are the two groups different?

         There are several similarities in the Freemason and the Illuminati societies. Both had secrecy as the reason for their creation and both include members who are freethinkers and highly intellectual. The goal of the creation of the two is different. The Illuminati was born in order to create a New World Order than would change the world, but the goal of the Freemasons was to create a society in which chivalry and honor would be evident among the members. This group is well known for its many charitable works all over the world.

         They are similar because they were both the result of societies in which people were afraid to speak openly about their thoughts of the government and the church. They did not want their members to be afraid of any consequences because they did what they felt was right. It is the fact that there are so many secrets surrounding these groups that makes them very mysterious to this very day.
