  • Originally it was a movement started in 1776 that consisted of intellectuals who swore loyalty to their superiors sort of modeled on Freemasonry. Some people at the time believed they were out to over thow govements.

    Today it's more related to conspiracy theories - that it's a secret organization whos memebers either run world govements or financial institutions or who are basically attempting to take over the world by infeltrating govements and financial institutions. When works of fiction refer to the Illuminati that's what they're referencing.

  • They are or were a secret organisation that supposedly had the one secret to blow religion out of the water. There are many theories to what that secret is though no body truly knows. There is proof the exist today, however there is speculation leading both ways. Only time will tell. If they do have this secret I am curious what it is. I would also love to see the look on people who use god to justify hate.
