The Knights Templars In America and History

I write a fair bit about the Knights Templar or Order of the Knight Templars here on Mysterious Societies and their role in history and even current world affairs.  One thing I have learned is that there is enormous Templar influence in very much, particularly here in North America, and in particular the United States, although Canada plays an important role as well, although less pronounced, at least for the time being. (Remember Oak Island) 

The Templars, or offshoots or derivatives of them  are probably the beginnings of the Masonic Lodge. In fact, no doubt there is a strong connection between the Knight's Templars and the Masons. It's difficult to be certain who came first, the Masons or the Templars, but rest assured there is lots of overlap between the two organizations.

What I find rather amazing is the lack of information or knowledge taught in schools about the Knight's Templars in history class, especially given their predominance in the discovery and likely settling of North America. For all intents and purposes, these are overlooked in school history books. Of course some of the reason why not much is said is because not much is known, and what is known is often not much more than speculation and conjecture, much of it unproven, which could explain the lack of school teaching about the order and it's role in history.

Thanks I believe in the most part to the internet and the sharing of information and ideas that goes online, some of that is changing. Of course, it is muddied by the often unsubstantiated writings, and often unknown sources, but by and large, there is more information available to us than ever before.

Take for instance the "Zeno Maps" which pretty much prove that when Columbus decided the world wasn't flat and set off to prove it, he already knew, having been privy to the earlier maps that showed a place on the other side of the world, a place that had already been "discovered" albeit by people not Christopher Columbus. By the way, there is also speculation that Christopher Columbus, was a member of the Knight's Templars, or at least connected to them, which would explain his knowledge of the round earth. It might also explain why he called the country America.

If it's true that Columbus was a member of the Templar Order, it explains how he may have come in possession of the maps and knew about the land on the other side of the ocean. It might also explain how the Scottish Knight, Henry Sinclair, of Roslyn, who was also connected to, if not a member of the Knight's Templars, found his way to America long before Columbus, some one hundred years before Columbus  to be exact. I have speculated before that Sinclair either brought something to America with him, or came to retrieve something he knew was hidden here, which leads to the Oak Island "treasure" and so on.....

What this essentially means is that much of the history we are taught in schools is wrong, or at the very least modified to suit someone, to suit those who really don't want the masses to know the real story behind the discovery of North America, for reasons known only to those "in the know" which may actually be a very few people indeed, perhaps people who for reasons of their own, would prefer this not be common knowledge, even though most of it is there for anyone who is looking to see.

My point in all of this is to say that if you are interested in the study of history and the esoteric, and perhaps even more than that, you should learn about the public but yet very mysterious Knight's Templars.

You can read what I consider to be a very good history of the Knight's Templar order Here
