  • If you ever watch the History channel, at times they have a program on the Illuminati. If I remember correctly in early centuries they were a group of scientists, philosophers, etc whose beliefs, teachings, etc were not accepted or liked by the Church and they were forced into becoming a pretty much secret society, meeting in secret as a result. In those early years the Church tended to label as heritics anyone who believed, taught, or professed anything they thought of as a threat to their control and power. These days conspiracy theorists tend to combine them with the Freemasons in a secret plot to overthrow the government, etc.You might check your library for some sources on the Iluminati in the 1st and 2nd centuries, etc. (may have been later...)

  • My understanding has always been that it is or was an order of people set out to cover up Government faults. They are often refereed to along with the Freemasons though I don't believe any links are actually there. Most people consider it a conspiracy theory.

  • google "bohemian grove" ... creepy ... and kerp ... the fact that many politicians and most Presidents are "friends" with them aught to raise an eyebrow, not get a shoulder shrug.

  • . The wingnuts here will try to link the president to it.

  • GOOGLE it. You won't get any real, honest answers here.
    THEY say it is a bunch of wealthy men that have been using their money and influence for hundreds of years. But it depends on whether or not you believe in that kind of conspiracy theory. It is something you need to investigate yoirself. The wingnuts here will try to link the president to it.... BUT there seems to be evidence that alot of politcians and most Presidents are friends with them.
