  • All I "know" about the Illuminati is what I read in "Angels & Demons" and other such books.

    So it's suspect at best.

    But even then I didn't think it had anything to do with devil worship, although it did place science over religion.

  • It's a common conspiracy theory, and it has nothing to do with religion, aside from the idea that people who are associated with organized religion might be members (if you agree with the whole theory in the first place).

  • I actually just watched a special on the History channel about this not long ago. According to it the Illuminati was a real group that may or may not have once been associated with the Free Masons (sources couldn't agree on that point). However, it was a small movement and was ordered disbanded at the end of the 18th century.

  • The Illuminati Is not really a religion. It is a group of scientists who claim to processes some thing that will bring down religion. There are many debates about whether they ever existed let alone still do. There is many things that show it is most likely true they at one point existed however there is nothing saying they still do. So whether they died away or went underground your guess is as good as mine. However it is a society of scientist not a religion or cult. No they do not worship the devil they just beleive in science and don't beleive in religion. I do know they seemed to have loved pissing of the Catholics.
