Below – My TV debate with Cardiff Freemason Jim Bevan – – – – Freemasonry and Witchcraft initiation rites compared “The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation. None is better than the three lower degrees of Free Masonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it. Next to this, the form of a learned or literary society is best suited to our purpose, and had Free Masonry not existed, this cover would have been employed; and it may be much more than a cover, it may be a powerful engine in our hands. By establishing reading societies, and subscription libraries, and taking these under our direction, and supplying them through our labours, we may turn the public mind which way we will. Books , films and ex-Freemason exposees Without doubt the most useful and accurate information on the Freemasons comes from ex memers of ‘the craft’.

Do we need a register of freemasons or are freemasons being unfairly singled out? Secret Society with secret ceremonies, protect and promote fellow members.
Secret history of freemasons
Responding to the critics of Freemasonry From Northern Ireland to Iran, from the Middle East to the United States, religious extremism is a growing force throughout the world. Jarred by the rapid pace of social and cultural change, especially the apparent disintegration of moral values and the break-up of the family, some people within this movement have sought refuge from the complexity of modern life by embracing absolute views and rejecting tolerance of other beliefs.
Simple, easy, seemingly stable answers bring comfort in a rapidly changing world. For example, some churches have responded to the personal anguish of their members by circling the wagons, that is, by strictly defining theological concepts and insisting their members “purify” their fellowship by renouncing any other beliefs. The next step, already taken by various churches, is to yield degrees of control within their ranks to vocal factions espousing extremist views.

One of the beauties of Freemasonry is that it allows the member to stretch his mind to think about a variety of topics not typically explored in mainstream history.
Some Masonic historians attempt to explain and look at the connections or possibilities in history that are often overlooked, especially to the recent past and into the not so recent historical world. Freemasonry today has been fairly unchanged in the last years, and is modeled in a system that was likely little changed for the years prior to that. These changes have evolved to shape the look and feel of modern lodge operation today. More on the History of Freemasonry.

Shadow people are apparitions that usually appear in sleep or have some association with sleep paralysis. Today I would like to look at one particular shadow entity — The Hat Man. The Hat Man is a shadow person that has been reported all over the world. The entity is usually described as a tall shadow man dressed in a long black trench coat and wearing a wide brimmed hat or a fedora. He is distinctively male and witnesses say that he has no face or a shadowy blurred face. Most shadow entities are usually seen for a moment or two before disappearing, but the Hat Man seems to be different often staying for a prolonged period of time and sometimes he even touches, chokes or assaults his victims.
Another aspect of the Hat Man that is eerie and more sinister than other shadow people is that the Hat Man is often associated with hostile environments, aggression and is sometimes an indicator that something evil will happen. Here is what the Strange Accounts website has to say: Other witnesses have reported that the Hat Man sometimes has glowing red eyes or black featureless, solid eyes. Others have said that the Hat Man is a fallen angel or an angel of death and that he comes just before a death.
Here is a semi-documentary from youtube on the Hat Man So the question is; does the Hat Man exist, who is he and what does he want or what is he signaling?

Herodotus states religious bestiality was practiced in Egypt – the most famous example being of course the copulations of women with goats. The scholar and anthropologist Lang states that the Egyptian women submitted to he-goats while the “men committed the sin of impurity with she-goats. At El Yemen, trained baboons were popular sex partners with men and women alike.

Sunday, May 3, Masonic Dating Systems In the Masonic fraternity, the Lodge along with the appendant and concordant bodies use a unique dating system when keeping records. This date originates from creation of the world as read from the Book of Genesis when God brought light to the world, and then created night and day.

It should also be noted that there are also some groups that only use the current year to date records.
No, Freemasonry is not a religion. Masons who treat it as such are mistaken. Freemasonry strongly encourages its members to belong to an established religion, although that is not a requirement for membership only that a candidate profess a belief in a Supreme Being. Masonry is a fraternal organization that encourages morality and charity and studies philosophy. It has no clergy, no sacraments, and does not promise salvation to its members.
