The Illuminati's history, origins, and claims of their existence today
May 13, 2014James F Byrnes Freshman Academy
Secret societies are clubs or organizations whose activities are concealed from non-members of the group. One of these groups well known across the world is called the Illuminati.
One website online purported the Illuminati began with the concept of human interbreeding with alien reptiles from another planet, which traces back thousands of years ago.
The modern Illuminati began on May 1, 1760 founded by a man named Adam Weishaupt, who was a German philosopher.
The Illuminati was somewhat popular across Europe when it was first introduced; the group had over 2,000 members.
In the 1780s Bavarian government forced the Illuminati to disband, and the Illuminati has not been confirmed to have come back since.
The Illuminati claimed to have had control of all of the world’s economy. They also claim to have achieved all control over the International Bankers of Europe at one point in time.
The goal of the Illuminati was to create a “one world government.” Illuminati literally means “one who is illuminated” or “the enlightened one.”
The Illuminati claimed that WWI was fought to destroy czarism in Russia and also claimed WWII was fought between fascists and political Zionists in order to destroy fascism and strengthen communism.
An article from The University of North Carolina said Freemasons adopted the beliefs of the Illuminati, and many writings from the deceased freemasons say that the belief of freemasonry is the continuation of the Illuminati.
The Illuminati claimed that WWIII will be a war against Zionists and Moslems, and the world will be forced to begin a new government.
