What Exactly Does “Illuminati” Mean?

tunnel

A few years back, after the release of his short film “Runaway,” rap impresario Kanye West found himself busy quashing rumors that he practices devil worship and is part of the notorious Illuminati. The gossip was sparked by references in ”Runaway” to that elusive organization. West expressed confusion about the Illuminati. Is it connected to supposed devil worship? What does the word signify?

The Illuminati refers to several different groups. The name derives from the Latin illuminatur, which means “enlightened.”

Let’s dispense with the Da Vinci Code version of  the group, and move on to reality: The Bavarian Illuminati, a secret society that was founded in 1776, coalesced at the University of Ingolstadt. The group was made up of “freethinkers.” The precise nature of the organization’s activities is a mystery, but some writers believe that the Illuminati (or the Perfectibilists, as they preferred to be called) were the puppeteers behind the French Revolution. This notion itself is worthy of Dan Brown’s imagination.

In modern times, the term Illuminati refers to a conspiratorial organization that is said to mastermind current world affairs. This organization allegedly controls both governments and multinational corporations. These conspiracy thoughts have some unfortunate roots, in the anti-Semitic “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” a 20th century hoax from Russia that claimed to be evidence of a conspiracy of Jews to rule the world.  For an infamously shoddy document, the Protocols have had remarkable staying power and often lurk in the shadows of conspiracy theories of all colors.

The Illuminati has tickled the imagination of popular culture. References to the secret society are found in a wide variety of media, from video games to comic books to, of course, Kanye West’s film.

Are there other popular but vague references (like the Illuminati) you’d like us to clarify? Let us know, and the so-called secret will be revealed.

    world peace- you got it half right. Illuminati was the name given by Christian Religeous Leaders to people who have been baptised (ILLUMINATED) in the name of God in God`s churches during the 16th and 17th centuries, In 1776 the Bavarian Illuminati “secret society“ was founded,the basis on which the word was built was lost due to ignorance of people, nonetheless you do know what you are talking about.

    “Illuminati Elder“-with a name like that i dont think my children would even take you seriously,if you don`t know what you are talking about please do yourself a fovour and rather shut up cause idiots like you cause more ignorance amounst people. Here`s a question, You claim illuminati gives all this riches,etc. Where is yours? Please do meet with me in your million dollar car or mansion,if you have this riches please prove me wrong,

    If the government can filter the content you see and read on websites there’s no doubt that all this stuff we read on the illuminati and what there goals really aim towards,that half of the information we build our opinions is not even the real core of it. I think the Illuminati and all that is really more to do with energy and magic,or per say the mind and being able to access it. You guys put energy into the whole concept that they are trying to rule the world. And I want some peoples information as to what’s going on in our halfway houses specially here in Utah because I’m almost convinced that the dark arts and whatever is being practiced there is our closest key to figuring out what’s all going on. Yet I’m still a bit unsure… but to me, tupac statement ‘take the evil out the people they be acting right’ is very peculiar and I believe that whether you are religious or not that people I’m still questioning what is really the deal with them, I was told to read the bible.

    Wickipedia: The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”) is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776 to oppose superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to support women’s education and gender equality.

    Some people need to do a bit of research before commenting. But then again if your a brain washed religious fanatic who believes dinosaurs existed along side man 10,000 years ago, I can see why you would hate the Illuminati.

    Hi guys this whole thing of hidden sighns all over the place and hidden massages that will inspire to do evill things. Me personally don’t believe in define interventions good or evil, Its a choice thing whether to do one thing or the other. People should stop thinking that life is defined by symbols and hoocus pocus yadda yadda. In the respect I am Atheist in all sense of the word, that means I dont believe in God, that centernaly means I don’t believe in the devil….I know some people will think I am evil and that I am a Freemason or Ilumanati or some group. It just means I made a choice of looking at the world in my way and not of somoene else’s way

    That’s just the stuff they they try and feed you. Satan owns nothing; God owns everything. See the advantage. Oh and by the way 3:00 is the lords hour but satan didn’t want people to know that so he made up some lie as he usually does. That’s what he’s here to do lie, kill and destory. And if tou know the true meaning of destroy then you know it means complete and entirely wipe out. The motive has never been money, sex or Nations. He wants two things to be worshiped as god (that where illuminati comes in) since that’s why he rebeled against God. In the first place and souls human souls since he’s goesing to be in hell for all eternity he mite as well talk anyone he can with him. You have remember God make us so he loves us. If your kid was taken from you by your greatest enemy but that enimy was your kid also who turned against you. Its like that.

    Okay the illuminati is just a group of people that been in power since ancient times they since the Pharos ,kings, presidents, dictators , rulers . The illunminati is a shadow group that always find ways to control . we cant kill them because they are well graded and believe me i have tried you can’t . The only way is if we gather up and use the A bomb on them when they are all together in thir meetings …but this attack must also be in secret we have to be top secret only among us the people we all have to cooperate in this or it will not work if we squeal each other out remember they will win we have use brut force on theme there are only a few of them and s whole lot of us I think we can kill them a back our freedom.

    Iluminati and Anti-Christ are the same thing, without been told I know that most musicians of nowadays, mostly the new generation of musicians today belong to one secret society or the other. It is written on their faces or in their character or behavior. It is horrible, the whole world is in-trouble. Even the way they dance the, body movement alone will tell you that in them something strange has been deposited and that is the seed of deceit, the seed of devil. In their secret places they suck blood, because they had blood covenant. They are everywhere, Not only musicians they whole key positions in the country and all over the world, they are in power, lluminati have thousands means and ways they operate, both in the church, in the schools, they have click in the offices were they exist. They get things easy. It dose not mean that children of God do not get things easy they do. Christians should be very careful cos de are everywhere.God help us Amen.

    Illuminati c’est enfaite une société secrète, satanique qui a pour projet gouverner le monde en établissent un nouvel ordre mondial, leur bute est de soumettre toutes les nations à eux afin de les diriger sous leur propre control, les membres de cette société satanique sont des personnes très célèbre et riche composer d’homme politique, de musicien et de plusieurs d’autres grandes personnalité.
    il y a beaucoup de signes dont on ignore la signification mais qui ont un sens très obscure. connaissez-vous la face cachée de la marque ”tête de mort” ? Beaucoup vous diront que cette marque symbolise le danger, mais en vérité ce n’est pas ça!
    Jéhovah passe par des personnes pour nous dévoilés tous les secrets et techniques que satan pourrait utiliser pour nous tirés dans ses filets mais malheureusement beaucoup ne croyant pas, prenne plutôt plaisir à servir Satan sans le savoir.
    la bible enseigne beaucoup de chose au sujet des choses qui surviendront pendant l’approche de la fin du monde. Les guerres ; les tremblements de terres ; les épidémies ; les maladies incurables ; les catastrophes naturels don souffre le monde aujourd’hui.
    Beaucoup ne savent par que les illuminati ont des appareils capable de créer des tourbillons de mer, des tremblements de terre, des tornades, des tempêtes, etc.
    Prier Jéhovah pour qu’il vous épargne de la malice de satan et ces démons.
    Les illuminati ont aussi donné vie à des virus dont eux même ont les remèdes.
    Ils ont créé des vaccins qui détruisent des maladies et engendre d’autres.
    Une puce a été récemment mise sur marché et elle circulerait déjà même en Amérique.
    D’âpres les dis, cette puce servirait à identifier les personnes qui porte la marque de satan qui serait comparable au signe ‘’666’’.
    Ils des signes sur des bouteilles, des boites, des vêtements, des appareils etc.
    En tous cas ! restez du cote de Christ-Jésus.

    At first I believed all the conspiracy theories stuff, but then I got to thinking about it, and noticed that there seemed to be a lot of missing information. Eventually in my search for truth, I stumbled upon a site called armaggedon conspiracy.com. This site claimied that the illuminati are actually good people that fighting against something called the old world order, which is basically the other”illuminati” that conspiracy theorists put on there website and that they are framing the good illuminati. It’s a little confusing but go to the site and see what you think. . . but please keep an open mind.

    I agree the Illuminati is a scary yet crucial subject, but what they say about Jzay and Katy Perry being in it I dont believe its just a hoax but then again I could be wrong because they’re does seem to be some graphic images in many of those music videos, they just want attention not always the right attention but plain and simple attention, they’re managers have them do this because everytime you type either the name of the video you will be watching or you click that “replay” button, your just another hit towards more riches.

    the secret of illuminati is in the decleration of rights of france.it is a clue that illuminati gives the world about them.they only do it through pictures and art.if we keenly observe the french decleration it has a pyramid and an eye in it,also the lady has a spectre in her hand pointing towards the decleration which means ‘power’..it indirectly warns us about the control of the world in their hands,illuminati

    It is real, people. Do you think greed has boundaries? Wealthy people, upon gaining everything there is to buy, suddenly became bored with life. So, they establish this ‘ILLUMINATI’ bullshit which is real.

    If your government can lie to you, how much more can the private/multinational corporations do it which are not bound by total transparency? You may have your president/king/queen/prime minister but do you know who is the CEO/chairman of the board?

    In two decades, and this you can count on, the world would be owned by a handful of rich & powerful people….coinciding in the advent of more powerful weapons of mass destruction which will be controlled by them. And most of us would be just foot soldiers from thereon.

    It’s human nature so you can bet on it. You can even see this behavior on your children – wanton greed for attention, control and material things.

    For basically, humanity is vile.

    Humans – supposedly the culmination of forward evolution of living organisms…..yet is the main cause of inequilibrium on this planet.

    Good luck, everybody.

    Exactly BrittC. These people have no idea about anything they are talking about. Freemasons have been around for a very long time and many people involved in business and various industries join the ‘illuminati’ but not for the reasons that are suggested here. You people live in ignorance. There is a way this world works and Freemasons know the answers which contributes to their success. You are outsiders looking in. If you want to know about this subject.. READ! Many great books on how to become successful. The ‘illuminati’ follow the secrets. The secrets to success! And that is all it is about. Nothing to do with Satan or sacrifices… that’s garbage!

    I don’t believe this. The “Illuminati” are not “Devil Worshipers.” They take (most) their meetings topics from the Catholic Church. They do not practice the evil side of Voodoo. They do not do anything evil. The Illuminati are a group of powerful men that use their money to put things out. They have never (from the many Illuminati members that have opened up to me) praticed anything that has to do with the Evil Spirts, or Satan for that matter. They simply are a God worshiping group of men with lots of wealth. Good day.

    I don’t know for myself whether the Illuminati exists or not, so I will not touch upon the topic. I will join the debate of whether certain people worship the Devil, Satan, Lucifer, or whatever you wish to call it. What happened to the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution? Have all of you forgotten the section that regards freedom of religion. Anyone can believe in whatever higher power they wish to believe in. When you criticize someone for worshiping the Devil, Satan, Lucifer, or whatever you wish to call it, you are going against the U.S. Constitution. Think about that before you write hateful and judging messages.

Like when lil fixs his hat he makes a six with is hand symbolising 666 or when micheal jackson grap his dick he makes the rock star sign. lol freemason an the illuminti are everywhere i swear to you. There on every channel in you [domain,house] an i noticed that T.v dosent stand for televison well thats what they want us to thank. It stands for telopathic vision witch means things are transferd to you without knowing. An when rappers say ima [G] there talkin about the G thats in the freemason symbol. An when they say im [ill] lol crazy aint it. In every top song or everysong for that matter there talkin about sum shit supernatural i believe. like as i told u i noticed stuff every sence. like i still listin to music to hear stuff an i watch t.v to see stuff. But i dont know if im the only one but it seems like the more i learn of this stuff the smarter i get. people are still blinded by the songs, an movies there not listin or visualizing. im a 15 year old phylosopher. real G moves in silence like lesgona DO U GET IT lil wayne said those words. lol thats crazy there that smart to cover that shit up like that. U HAVE TO HEAR,THINK, AN BREATH YOU words right befor u can understand. An in the song [forever] Drake said everyone did it with a deal i did i without one. An everyone knows he signed with youngmoney so wat could he mean, let me tell u he didnt sell his soul like they did, an the album recover by eminem is him trying to get out the illuminti, but with thats song love the way u lie he got right back in it. lol an look on the monster drink do u know the little green strips there symbols of 666 in hebrew translation. thats crazy when a orginization is that big that its on food. lol an people when u look at a star make sure theres not two points thats at the top if it is thats a illuminti sign, money is the devil ruler of all evil but the thing that bother me is that all we have to do it barow from each other. an if everything was free there wouldnt be no crimes it would be close to paradice. lol dont let me get to money every see the pirmid on the back look at the bottom conners of it theres aliens standing. I bet yall never seen that its because they dont want u to see. dude there even ways u ben the dollar or five or ten or 20 etc ull see the twin towers on the dollar normal 5 its being hit on the ten its burning an on the 20 its falling an so on an if u dont belive me go to youtube. everything u know it apart of im [ill]/illuminti an freemason

    Christians don’t believe that 2012 is the end of the world. Christians believe “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” – Matthew 24:36

    All I can say is, don’t wast your life getting caught up in this garbage, be it real or fake. Obviously if a major website like dictionary.com is posting articles about it, it must be something that we the people need to be aware of, but don’t get consumed in it. Philippians 4:8 – “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.”

    Forget what celebrities are doing and talking about. When it comes down to it, the only one you can worry about is yourself. As long as you know your life is in order and your heart is in the right place, you have nothing to worry about, or Christians don’t atleast, because they know that GOD will protect them.

    If someone wants to sell their soul and worship the devil, thats on them. to each his own. 2 Corinthians 5:10 – “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”
    Just make sure your house is in order.

    Also, just because someone quotes the bible or says they believe they in God doesn’t mean anything. These famous people can talk all they want to, but if they’re actions don’t line up, it doesn’t matter. Many people can talk just to decieve you, but you know them by their fruits. Matthew 12:33 – “Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.”

    They really need a comment rating system on here to put the highest rated comments on the top so that a person doesn’t have to wade through all of the rubbish to find the “Gems” like the one Andrew posted. Andrew’s comment covered the important aspects, I just want to add that Dictionary.com created a Straw man to attack with this statement:

    “In modern times, the term “Illuminati” refers to a conspiratorial organization that is said to mastermind current world affairs. This organization allegedly controls both governments and multi-national corporations. These conspiracy thoughts have some unfortunate roots, in the anti-Semitic “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” a 20th century hoax from Russia that claimed to be evidence of a conspiracy of Jews to rule the world. For an infamously shoddy document, the Protocols have had remarkable staying power and often lurk in the shadows of conspiracy theories of all colors.”

    As if that one document was the basis for the Illuminati conspiracy, and this anti-Semitic document “lurk(s) in the shadows of conspiracy theories” so beware of being an anti-Semite by believing in something that someone labels a “conspiracy theory.” The label “conspiracy theory” has been purposefully associated with ridiculous ideas so that a theory, of any sorts, can be “discredited” by someone stating that something is a “conspiracy.”

    As someone interested in the origin of words I want to mention where the word conspiracy comes from: conspire is the root word, and it comes from “late 14c., from Old French conspirer (14c.), from L. conspirare “to agree, unite, plot,” lit. “to breathe together,” from com- “together” (see com-) + spirare “to breathe” (see spirit).

    Of far greater importance than the political struggle today is the spiritual, cosmic battle between God (Good) and Satan (Evil) for the soul of man.

    The struggle is between an international financial elite dedicated to Satan led by the Illuminati, and the remnants of humanity that still uphold God’s Plan. The unsuspecting masses inhabit a fool’s paradise like children.

    The struggle is not between nations, religions or between ideologies of Left or Right. This occult elite creates and controls both sides of every conflict in order to obscure and at the same time advance a long-term agenda.

    The elite plan is to remake the planet as its private neo-feudal preserve that systematically increases the wealth and power gap between the rich and the poor. This involves the reduction of the world’s population through plague, catastrophe or war; mind control/breeding of the survivors as serfs; and the elevation of Lucifer as god.

    A cataclysm could happen within the next 10-20 years. We are living on borrowed time, duped by the media and distracted by sex while the elite tests and imposes various methods of manipulation and control.

    Thousands of organizations like the United Nations promote the elite’s “world government” agenda with practically no public scrutiny. More recently, the elite instigated the September 11 attacks in order to justify their “war on terror”, the repressive “Patriot Act”, and Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

    The flooding of New Orleans, vaccinations, invasive and toxic medical treatments, weather manipulation and power blackouts are other tests or possible harbingers. A seed bank has been established on a remote Norwegian island in case of nuclear war.

    Sophisticated and dedicated people roll their eyes when told about this conspiracy. They are hypnotized by their “education” and the mass media.

    The “Illuminati” sounds too fantastic to be believed, but this is no fantasy.

    Hidden within Freemasonry, it is the Church of Satan. Its membership was known; its premises were raided. Plans and correspondence were seized and published. At formal inquiries, defectors testified to the grave danger. It was suppressed but went underground. It has since grown so powerful that it has literally defined the modern age (under the guise of “progress”, “reform”, “sexual liberation”, “feminism”, “equality” and “diversity”) and now threatens the future of humanity.

    The term “Illuminati” means “enlightened ones” and refers to Lucifer, the “light bringer.” The Illuminati uses bribes of money and sex to gain control of men in high places, and then blackmails them with the threat of financial ruin, public exposure or assassination.

    In 1832 William Russell established a chapter of the Illuminati at Yale called the “Skull and Bones.” Ex-president George W. Bush, his father and John Kerry are avowed members.

    On September 9, 1785, Joseph Utzschneider, a lawyer, and two other defectors revealed the Illuminati goals before a Court of Inquiry in Bavaria: Abolition Of the Monarchy and all ordered governments; Abolition of private property (which the Illuminati will assume); Abolition of Patriotism (nations); Family, (through the abolition of Marriage, Morality, and by government providing “Education” for children) and finally, Abolition of all Religion, particularly Christianity.

    These protocols are exactly the goals of Communism, proclaimed by Marx in 1848. The Illuminati and Communism go hand-in-glove. The term “Reds” originates with “Red Shield”, the Rothschild name.

    God and Satan made a wager for the soul of man. If God wins, man revels in the glory of his Divine Birthright. If Satan wins, man is destroyed. This is the religious nature of politics.

    As Bob Dylan once sang, “You have to serve somebody.” Just be very certain of who it is you are serving.

    First of all to all the athiests this kind of thinking is complete bullshit. There’s no God or no devil? What makes you do bad things and what makes you do good things. What controls all the planets from colliding with each other and what makes them stay in alignment. I dont give the explain everything with science bullshit. What makes us not able to breathe in space. What keeps are heart from dying out. All you have to do is look at nature and you know that there’s a God out there. I also believe that there’s a devil. Who feeds of the discouraged and the weak. Now I hav a question what happens afetr you die do u just get lsot in a bank of memories of the past generations..HELL NO!! Im sayin this rite now to tell everyone there is a God believe it. If you want to know him just ask him and be patient. Read the Bible alot too. Now that I hav said this you can’t say You’ve never heard someone tell you about God on Judgement Day. Illuminati is real but it grows and feeds of our fear there’s no need to be afraid of them. With God on ur side you will always stand Victorious because the battle is already won. If you don’t believe about the Illumanati(which affaliates with a group called the Brotherhood) then read He set the captives free by Rebecca Brown. This book is about how she saved the first bride of Satan and brought her to Christ

Organisation <— What is that? Not a word surely. Cristian? Last I checked it was Christian, main part Christ. If you can't spell that you are a shame, or just completely illiterate.
    In my opinion it matters not who worships the devil because they are not forcing us to do anything against our will. Also if they were trying to use hypnosis on us, the chances of that working or should I say even being possible are slim to none. Brainwashing is just ridiculous.

    Do you know that Illuminati is a group of people greedy of power and wealth? Do know that these people are manipulating us? These people wanted to create a mental and emotional prison cell of which it was fatal to tread. A secret group who created/invented various religions and organizations in which to further imprison, divide and rule. They are the owners mostly of big companies, media, banks, etc. around the globe. Some people may think the impossibility of such but it really exists.

    I would suggest, everyone must read different kinds of books to further their knowledge and be observant to what is happening around. Be open-minded people!!!…

    Illuminati is a secret society of ‘enlightened’ or free thinking intellectuals. It was secret because it was seen as a threat to the old world governments as well as the church. But today it has little purpose as in most countries you can freely exchange ideas, so a seceret society isn’t needed. It still exist today but i don’t beleive it controls the governments and corporations. I also don’t beleive that they worship the devil if anything they probably don’t beleive in the devil. The “devil” is the weapon of the church used to instill fear. I see it more today as an exlusive club for wealthy people to make them feel special. The world, in my mind, isn’t controlled by any single entity.

    guys , what about Eminem … ? i’m actually surprised that no one’s mentioned him yet . apparently he also sold his soul to the devil and regrets it , and now he’s trying to expose the Illuminati because he’s sick of how they’re controlling him .. in fact , isn’t that what his song I’m Not Afraid is about , rather than what went on between him and his ex-wife ?

    i also heard that 2Pac was killed by the Illuminati because he was attempting to unshadow them , just like how Eminem’s doing right now . but at the same time , sources say that he faked his death to get away from them , o.o; not sure if anyone mentioned that yet …

    finally , one more thing . it’s said that before the Illuminati carries something out , they depict the event under fictional circumstances way before it ever occurs in real life . like , weren’t there some movies of airplanes crashing into the Twin Towers , before the year 2001 ? and what about 2Pac’s friend (his best friend as a matter of fact , i think) that died when he got shot at a club or something ? didn’t one of 2Pac’s old music videos feature his friend’s death in the exact same way ?
    of course , this could all be a coincidence .. but does anyone else remember what happened earlier this year , about the toursists from Hong Kong being taken as hostages when they were in the Philippines ? search up Fatal Vacation on wikipedia ..

    now you tell me whether it’s a coincidence or a conspiracy …

    For the best fictional novel alluding to the “Illuminati,” read Umberto Ecco’s FOUCAULT’S PENDULUM, or even, THE NAME of the ROSE. These are the novels after which Don Brown modeled his lesser work. Their common theme is to examine the ownership of knowledge. And we all know the saying “Knowledge is Power.” From the Fall of Rome to the Renaissance, intellectual inquiry was thought of as a heresy in Christendom, while the Muslim rationalists in power at the time, considered it the same as a spiritual pursuit. So, in Western Europe at that time, those seeking intellectual pursuits probably did need a covert environment and moral support of comraderie to do their work in a world entirely hostile towards them.

    Known members of the Free Masons include Benjamin Franklin, one of the Fathers of the American Constitution and Mozart. There exists an extant engraving of Franklin wearing his apron of rank within the organization. The allegorical events of Mozart’s THE MAGIC FLUTE allude to the society of Free Masons.
    The eye in the middle of the pyramid on the back of the US dollar actually represents the “Eye of God,” and is accompanied by the motto “In God We Trust.”

    Perhaps it is better to read original source material, then consider the actual impact of these works before building vulnerable opinions.

    Most of the illuminati are pagans not satanist, they worship nature not as a God but rather as a living being, and most are atheist. So even if Kanye was part of them (which I doubt), because most of the illuminati have in the past been mad…e up from royal families and the hierarchy of society (usually born into that social status), he still wouldn’t be a “devil worshiper”, people are just ignorant, and would rather make their own interpretations of what these social “cults” are, mostly they’re just a bunch of rich people getting together in each others basements playing poker and drinking, and talking about how rich they are. But the best information I have ever actually gotten that was legitimate about the illuminati came from a film called the “Esoteric Agenda”, check it out most of you would probably enjoy it and you can watch it online for free at the moviemakers site. Still it’s a stretch to say any celebrity is actually apart of these organizations, illuminati or otherwise.

    The Illuminati was nested within the inner circle of Freemasonry in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt. They can be identified by the all seeing eye at the top of the pyramid which is prevalent in many places, most notably the back of the US $1. This represents total information awareness at the top of the pyramid, while the masses at the bottom perpetuate it’s control; some knowingly, but most unknowingly. Some Freemasons will tell you that Albert Pike was going rogue when he said Lucifer was the light bearer, but the fact remains that they worship the Great Architect with people of all religions, which is blasphemy to some. In my opinion Kanye knows full well about this subject, and is just bringing it to light in a way that doesn’t put him under the microscope.

    The Illuminati is a secret society that believes in bettering the world, through any means possible. They don’t follow international laws, they most likely own many multi-national entities in order to fund, cover, and implement their ideas. They are not Satan worshipers in any way, they simply do what they believe is necessary for the betterment of the human race, no matter how wrong it may seem. they believe that the end justifies the means.

You notice hes mention the illuminati and in the new song hot tottie with jay-z and usher. on Jay-Z’s part hes also talking about the illuminati. Also alot of people didnt know that most of our president are free-masons. George Washington. He was one of them. I personally didnt know that. Oh and Christopher Columbus, he is another story. He’s a knight templar. A group that worshiped the goat ( sign of the devil ) and the king killed them all off. Thats why we have friday the 13th. Many people in the world keep things from us. M.j. dad had him killed off because he was worth more dead thean he was alive. Dont think im stupid or carzy but on you tube you can find a video of one of his sisters talking about how “they killed him and they know who they are ” Obviously that has to be someone and if your thinking about they being his docotor. How come no one speaks about him anymore? Wouldnt we atleast still hear about the investigation. And when he had psted away and it being a year, why didnt they announce the suspect has not been cought yet….? Craig said that the people had to give up something valuable to them to prove theirselfs loyalty. I believe it was jennifer hudson who’s family had died. Her aunt and her nephews i think thats who it happened to. That was her sacrifice and Kanye west mom her bad hip and how she died to that was his. But How come jay-z doesnt have to give. He’s on top he’s been doing great for years so he doesnt have to give anything up. and beyonce to she’s one of the top singer too. And you noticed in The Notorious Big that in the movie 2Pac goes out side and people start shooting at him. he runs inside and is like ” You tried to kill me you tired to kill me and get rid of me ” at biggie. Why would he have want to get rid of him what was his perpose? idk you stubborn people out there can not agree with some of us.

    In modern times, the term “Illuminati” refers to a conspiratorial organization that is said to mastermind current world affairs. This organization allegedly controls both governments and multi-national corporations.
    - – -
    The link to devil worship must come from Bible readers because the Bible says at 1 John 5:19 that Satan is the ruler of the world and that everything in this system of things is under his control including the political, commerical and religious systems (which the Bible refers to symbolically as the Wild Beast, the Merchants and Babylon The Great respectively).

    First off, wow. Lot of speeling errors. But back to the point, knightowl, thank you for giving a very accurate description of the original Illuminati. As for some of you, Im amazed at the dribble you spout. Tabitha, like Kstil said, you just posted based off of rumors. Phillipe Baptise, there is not much I can say about your insanity. Im a Christian as well, but I do my research, and don’t believe that certain things Christianity denounces is necessarily evil. Like knightowl said, it was because Christianity was denouncing science that the Illuminati had to be secretive. Quite honestly, I believe rappers will sing about anything to bring attention to themselves.

    all that you hear about Illuminati being devil worshipers is false. The church made that up in order to stop the scientists from making discoveries, like the fact that the earth is actually spherical and not flat. It didn’t like science so it accused the scientist of worshipping the devil as an excuse to kill them all.

    I find it interesting that people still buy into the whole devil worship thing. It’s 2010. As Knightowl said, it was originally a group of “enlightened” people who studied science. Because their theories and studies were not in line with what the church tried to force everyone to believe, they then labeled it as “devil worship.” Obviously, just because something is not in line with Christianity does not make it devil worship. That’s just an oppressive tactic that the church used waaaaaay back then, and I find it crazy that people let themselves be gullible to believe that. It’s okay to be enlightened.

    As far as the pop culture aspect of this topic, did you know that Kanye West has a song called Jesus Walks? He’s pretty passionate about that song, and insisted on putting it out even though he was told that a religious song wouldn’t fare well on the charts. Sure he’s changed some since then, but to from that to a devil worshiper? Come on… It’s pop culture, entertainment, a show. Artists do things to create their public character. Not all of the “symbolism” really means anything.

    The conspiracy theory of history is not only an interesting topic but one in which should be examined seriously. If the overall theme is true or even parts of it, the freedom and rights of individuals throughout the world are in danger. The conspiracy involves people in high levels of society, the wealthy elite, international bankers, political leaders and secret societies. In general, it involves a long-term master plan to create a one-world system–a global system with one ruling government and one world religion or no religion depending upon the point of view.
    This secret society originally began in the crusade days 1119 A.D. SO in those days all crusades were of white origin and looking at the way the world is now this is just an opinion so do not take me wrong but as we know the past Gov.that was in power plus other Figures in different parts of the World have left the planet in complete turmoil all that most not so rich class have had now is gone this is all over the world. Now will somebody answer this why was the Bin Laden family at teh White House at the time the Two (2) World Trade Buildings were taken down by people from so far away Hummm, and there is more to this secret society that one may think and want to know or even reveil….enough said.

    My, my what ignorance, marketing and hype: Nobody you know, and nobody that any “they” which can be dreamed of may be identified as members of the Illuminati. Money can not buy one in, only DNA. And about devil worship: why would anyone, especially an aeon in a position of such immense earthly power and influence stoop to worship a fictitious folk-entity created, established and maintained just to keep the wee common folk in a perpetual dither. This is all very juvenile, and so I cannot fathom why it has ended up on the pages of an otherwise respectable reference site. Most disappointing. Although Kanye West is a phenomenal voice talent (occasionally), he is just an entertainer – a showman, a dancing-jester, a clown. And everytime he opens his mouth, and is not singing, he gets busy spewing foolishness. The real Illuminati and their minions, by the way, consider all of this very amusing – much as precocious little children consider using a magnifying glass and the suns rays combined to incinerate scurrying pissants. Great good fun.

    There is alot of dis-info about the ‘Illuminati’ and many people only get the tip of the iceberg because the easiest info to get their hands on is usually mixed with truth & lies to throw you off… Dan Brown especially.
    The Illuminati is a well-organised, leading body of a larger network; a network that includes many, if not all, secret societies (Incl. witchcraft, satanism, freemasons etc), some religious groups, intelligence services, government bodies, and many more… all working independently but for the same goal. Although at the top of these organisations these is much collaboration between each group, they just don’t want the lower members knowing the full truth.
    The reason for the illuminati taking a leading role in all of this is because all members are decendants from 13 important bloodlines (Satanic, depending on how you look at it). Even though these bloodlines / families worked together behind the scenes for centuries for world control, it wasn’t until the Rothschild bloodline (High, if not, the highest of the 13) COMMISSIONED Adam Weishaupt to help create a more organised body of the 13 bloodlines; and the term ‘Illuminati’ (Enlightened ones) was created.

    This is just a brief explanation, research it yourself if want greater detail; i suggest fritz springmeier. A great researcher and devout christian who was framed for speaking out; you decide his innocence from the facts.

    How does Kanye West fit in all of this? Well, he’s just part of the network.. a mover and shaker, recruited and bought under the common script of ‘Do what we tell you and we’ll make you famous’. He’s no doubt sworn an oath of secrecy depending what society he a part of and he’ll get a little taste of power but just enough to keep him happy. Just because he or his society may not practise devil worship, does not mean another group (Part of this network) doesn’t! They’re all one big ‘happy’ (satanic) family whether they know it or not.

Freemasons and Illuminati are well known brotherhoods/fraternities that keep their identity secret to protect their interest, not because they are a satanic cult. That’s insanely funny. And Baptiste, do not just judge other people, you wouldn’t know, if they really are satanic cults, you oughta watch yer back.

    A lot of it boils down to an individual’s perspective. Logically, if the Illuminati were to exist (not stating personal beliefs) it would extremely practical to harness the influence of these entertainers and super-idols and use them as a springboard for their respective agenda. Do you/should you believe it?

    On the other hand, what significance would these images/meanings have to a someone not of Western culture? Would it affect them the same as Westerners? If Kangay is in fact a Illuminati puppet what is there to be gained by showing all this occult imagery to the masses? Subordination? Wouldn’t bringing attention to themselves be counterintuitive?

Religious (of course including christianity and islam) along with political views (including democracy and communism) are no better than the so called beliefs and practices of gangsters when it comes establishing and enforcing standards. This “My way or no way” mentality will inevitably be their downfall. You all are apart of fear campaigns that have been spread by the people who are not famous to the common masses. Wake up!! You are fighting and arguing over trivial matters that keep you ignorant, unaware and asleep which is what the people who spread the news of trivial matters feed you as if you were babies in need of maturing.

    Before I go into this, I just want to make it known that, no I’m not a mason, though I know many people who are, or are related to one.

    You people seriously need to do some research (search “freemasonry” on reference.com for a start) before you go spouting off about things you know nothing about. The freemasons are a secret society that have been in existence for centuries. Membership is never offered, one must ASK a member to sponsor them. Many freemasons are wealthy, but that is to be expected because membership dues must be paid annually and, from what I understand, they aren’t cheap, so it is much like a social club for the wealthy elite, like a country club without the golf course.

    As far as the freemasons being devil worshippers goes, that could not be further from the truth. The freemasons are an agnostic organization, requiring its members to believe in a supreme being, but do not specify a particular being in which they must believe. That means a believer in any god, be it Allah, Yahweh, Jesus, or Zeus, meets that qualification.
    The question is not WHICH being they believe in, only if they DO believe in one.

    Take a look at your family history, chances are there is a mason or two in your geneology. Many of this country’s founding fathers and many of our presidents were freemasons as well.

    “In modern times, the term “Illuminati” refers to a conspiratorial organization that is said to mastermind current world affairs. This organization allegedly controls both governments and multi-national corporations. These conspiracy thoughts have some unfortunate roots, in the anti-Semitic “Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” a 20th century hoax from Russia that claimed to be evidence of a conspiracy of Jews to rule the world. For an infamously shoddy document, the Protocols have had remarkable staying power and often lurk in the shadows of conspiracy theories of all colors.”

    Thank you for this objective, disinterested reassurance. The notion that a cartel of bankers and financiers now exercise exclusive power to issue or retract unlimited, unbacked fiat money in the form of tax-collateralized loans to legislatures and parliaments, to kings and presidents, and to their trans-national corporate allies on all sides of any conflict and thereby exercise inordinate influence over political and socioeconomic affairs does seem a bit far-fetched, doesn’t it.

    Guys, I love that we can come to this page and express what we think and know about the topic, but please…keep it sane. tabitha, all that you have “reported” is gossip. There is nothing to back any of that up, and to post it on an Ask.com site is simple ridiculous. And yes, B. Reed, you are correct in disseminating the actual use of “both” in “This organization allegedly controls both governments and multi-national corporations.” And Phillip Baptiste, I understand and respect that you have an opinion based on your faith, but I really wish that you would keep it reasonable. Sometimes conspiracy theories go too far; believe me, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, and all the rest are not totally parts of conspiracy theory Illuminati and Anti-Christian groups–which are, to note, not the same thing.

    I’ve always had a curiousity for the illuminati and freemasons. Even before 2Pac’s last album (the one he made while he was still alive, lol). Like most organizations, it appears the motive behind it changes with time. Kinda like starting a social networking site just to originally keep in touch with your close friends, and a couple years and million dollars later… The Jay Z thing is interesting because I hear they call entertainers once they find out that they’re worth more than $10 billion, not 100% on this. Although, just to make things even more mysterious, the “On To The Next One” video is practically made up of demonic images; although this could be because the video was shot in black-n-white. I heard Suge Knight had become a part of the illuminati; where I hear that you must sacrifice something of extreme importance to show your loyalty, in many cases a loved one or your most talented artist. All gangsterism aside, Suge said something once in an interview that I cannot get out of my head to this day. He said, “If you become rich in this society and a higher class of individuals do not like you (be it your personality or what it is you do), they’ll either try to take your money away from you or they’ll try to take you away from your money.” An unreliable source informed me that Jennifer Hudson (yes, the singer) became a part of the illuminati (rumors, I know) and that the whole thing about her sister’s ex-lover murdering her brother was just a cover up to what was really going on; extreme sacrifice to show your loyalty. WTF? Anyone see the Angelina Jolie movie “Salt”? I won’t spoil it, but what happens to her husband is a prime example of extreme sacrifice. I don’t believe in these types of allegations, but they can be pretty interesting.

    I have a weird conspiracy theory that rich people, disproportionately white and male, control society through governments, corporations, media, military, religion, etc.

    What is the rumor that Illuminati has been taking out targets that endanger their plans? For example, Tupac, Biggie, Michael Jackson, JFK, other well renowned figures, etc.

    Originally, the illuminati sect began as a group of scientists who were ahead of their time, including Galileo and Da Vinci. They were forced to practice their science in secret because many of the discoveries at the time were considered blasphemous, for instance the fact that the earth was not the center of the universe and rather revolved around the sun. It then evolved it’s focus on making sure the church did not prevent the progression of science in general. This is where the concept of a satanic influence came from since they were against the church.

    What i know is that the illuminati is a secret society that worships the devil in different ways and has many different signs and symbols to represent themselves. they have to the authority to do many things most people cant do. they base their selves off of the fame and riches many of them have. they have to make blood sacrifices too.

    I have a reference that I’d like clarified:
    In the video game “Call of Duty: World at War”, specifically the “Map Pack 3″ Expansion but also in the “Map Pack 2″ Expansion, there is a playable character in the Nazi Zombies mode that goes by the name “Dr. Richtofen”. He is an ex-Nazi Scientist with links to the Der Riese Project, which covered all sorts of things from molecular transport to the Nazi Bell. It is found within an in-game easter egg–a radio that plays a recorded message–that The Doc is a member of the Illuminati. The timeframe for this is possibly anywhere from the middle of World War II to shortly after the war ended. What possible connection could the Illuminati have with Nazi black projects?

    It’s lingered before the Runaway video. I believe it started a little after Late Registration came out, when Roc-A-Fella Records was at the height of pop culture. The clothes, the sign, and the off-kilter handshakes were all part of their repertoire. I’m not saying it’s true or not, but the occult symbols are definitely there, and knowing the gentlemen behind it, it’s probably intentional.

    What I think about this Illuminati is that it is every were Like singers and the people you see that make music that send subliminal messages that causes us to go under a trance that make us serve the devil. If you look at the back of s dollar bill (if you have one). If you see the Pyramid and the eye that is the eye of Satan. So what ever you do watch out for Jay-Z, Lady Gaga,and many more and please quit listening to them. Not to make a law suit against me I am just saying I have heard some songs and I am a Cristian and I don’t Even listen to an of them.

    This organization allegedly controls both governments and multi-national corporations.

    How many governments and multi-national corporations do the Illuminati control? Only two of each?

    Looks like a classic case of a dangling both.

    How about Freemasons? Myriad of people jump to the topic of Freemasons and how the famous rapper Jay-z is a member. Some say this is proven through his hip-hop video “Run This Town”.
