#religion

The founding fathers of #America were mostly #Deists and #Freemasons (NOT Christians). Freemasonry is often described as "A Beautiful system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by signs and symbols." WELL... THE EXACT SAME CAN BE SAID FOR EVERY MAJOR RELIGION PRACTICED IN HISTORY.

I read A LOT! Mostly concerning human pre-history, and ancient world history. After all, if you want to truly understand a story (e.g. human history or the origins of a #religion), you have to begin as CLOSE to its beginning on the timeline as you can, and even earlier, whenever possible.

That said... is I've noticed people I know posting in relation to Freemasonry. I'm curious as to why though? My grandfathers, on both sides, were Freemasons, and, for the times/eras in which they lived, I consider that a VERY progressive on their part. But in reality, Freemasonry is basically akin to a spiritual and philosophical SORORITY (or "secret society") for men, and a social club.

The "secrets" taught in Freemasonry are not inaccessible (but for many centuries they mostly were!). They are philosophical teachings and rites (ceremonies) based upon the lessons & histories of the ancient mystery schools, and more specifically AFTER the Hellenization of the region after the conquests of Alexander (the Macedonian) when Greek scholars were "intensely" focused on, studying, and translating the texts and oral traditions of Kemet (Egypt), Sumer/Mesopotamia, Persia, India, and the peoples of the fertile crescent.

If you're searching for SPIRITUALITY or SELF EMPOWERMENT, it's probably better to research the (now available) texts and histories of those places FIRST, and the origins of religion itself! In that way, you'd be MUCH BETTER equipped to understand the ancient allegorical legacies found within all major religions (including Freemasonry), and how to decipher fact from fiction and interpret their mix of mythology, spirituality, politics, philosophy/ethics, and economics.
