Open Your Mind - Illuminati Symbolism

In keeping with our recent series on Masonic Symbolism here is a video that overlaps the Masonic Symbolism somewhat, but claims to be more in relation to the Illuminati, or as some would believe, the 13 families that have controlled the world for perhaps centuries. There are some things that make one wonder....one of them is what appears to be a fairly recent phenomenom of leaders and people in the public eye raising their arms and making a symbol with their hands using their fore finger and baby finger, you'll see it in this movie. It's a departure from the 'peace symbol' once used by the peace movement of the sixties and then at one point by deposed President Richard Nixon. From what I can find out, the closest meaning is the sign language symbol for "I Love You" That is when the baby finger, forefinger and thumb are held out and the other two fingers folded to your palm. Here is what the "I Love You" symbol looks like,

Notice the baby finger, the forefinger and the thumb are extended...now watch this video, no one is extending their thumb that I can see....



Hmm...some of this stuff can always be explained away, especially if you want to explain it away. I would love for someone to ask one of these celebrities, like President Bush, or any of the others for that matter, exactly what message they are sending with their hands, what does that mean in their sign language textbook?According to this video, the symbol is for the devil, symbolizing the horns etc. Could it be that all these folks are doing the sign wrong? That they don't understand it? Or does it have some other meaning?

I hate to break it to you but the Illuminati disappeared over 200 years ago.
Whenever conspiracy theory is spouted, the mysterious "Illuminati" (along with the Bilderburgers, The Trilateral Commission, the Council of Foreign Relations, and others) are most often named as being responsible. Ironically, however, while many, many people can name those ostensibly belonging to the other conspiracy groups, the "Illuminati" is always left hanging as some secret, shadowy entity which no one can quite describe. Interestingly too, no one can quite identify what specific acts can be attributed to them - and no one in 225 years seems to have left the organization to reveal its secrets. Pretty strange..... (If you're not hearing the theme music for the X-Files right now, it's a CONSPIRACY!!!)

It is well established that by the end of the eighteenth century, the Illuminati had been effectively disbanded. Because of Freemasonry's inadvertent involvement and misuse by its founder, Adam Weishaupt, the legends of its continued existence (and influence) persist into the twentieth century. (Weishaupt founded the organization and then tried to get the Freemasons involved. He achieved a very limited success in a couple of lodges but was soon seen as a 'user' and his group removed.

In the 1950s and 1960s, members of the John Birch Society made much of this 'shadow' organization, using it as an effective substitute for their anti-Semitism. Perhaps some of the confusion regarding the organization is due to the fact that over time, the word illuminati came to be used more expansively for many enthusiasts of Enlightenment, including but not limited to the followers of Emmanuel Swedenborg. Nevertheless, the Illuminati's connection with Freemasonry was date-specific (the late 1700s) and place-specific (what is now Germany); it had NO involvement in Freemasonry elsewhere despite fanciful claims. Even the oft-mentioned 'Proofs of A Conspiracy' written in 1797 by a Scottish professor (and the root cause of so much furor in the United States as a result of one Boston Minister's fanciful claims made based on that book) notes that the Illuminati's brand of Freemasonry was NOT the same Freemasonry as found in England and from which all other legitimate Masonic lodges today can trace their ancestry.

If you want truthful (factual) info on these so called theories go this website and read the other sided of the story and then decide which makes more sense.
