Tupac, Biggie, Equinoxes and New Moons

I've been into researching Pac and Big's murders on and off since the beginning of my time as a Conspiracy Theorist.

But there is something I noticed just recently.  Tupac and Biggie were killed almost exactly sux months apart.  Tupac was shot on the 7th and died on the 13th of September 1996 and Biggie was shot and killed on the 9th of March 1997.

Then I remembered that September is the month the Autumn Equinox happens, and March the Spring Equinox.  They weren't killed on the Equinoxes which are the 21st-23rd, but about the same amount of time before them.

The Autumn Equinox is in the midst of the time that days are getting shorter, thus it is sort of the sun set of the year.  The Sun sets in the West, Tupac was the biggest West Coast rapper.  The Spring Equinox is in the midst of the time that the days get longer, hence the sun rise of the year.  The Sun rises in the East, Biggies was the biggest East Coast rapper.

Then I felt compelled to look at the Lunar cycles, because I'd already noticed that the day Tupac died,  September 13th 1996 was the day before the New Moon.  The last day of the month on a lunar calendar.  Well I checked Stellerium and other sources and March 9th was also the day before the New Moon.  So the last New Moon before each Equinox the two biggest Rappers were killed.

Biggie was shot and died the same day, but Tupac was shot 6 days before (died on the 7th Day) so you may be thinking "how could that be planned".  Well back when I theorized Tupac might have faked his death (a theory I abandoned in 2003) I had noted how at first the Doctors were claiming he was probably gonna live, but then on Friday the 13th suddenly he's dead.  It could be someone paid off doctors in that hospital to manipulate things.

That the amount of time Tupac spent in the Hospital happened to correspond to the name of his last album has become a very big deal to people.  Tupac gave it that name apparently because it took 7 days to record.

There is a trend out there of people saying the Illuminati references Tupac made were really against conspiracy theorists.  This is really a massive oversimplification out of context manipulation of what he said.  You can certainly demonstrate from things he said with no Illuminati references that he certainly believed the Government was corrupt and controlled by the Super Rich.  Which is the gist of what all Conspiracy theorists agree on.

The ultimate point of what Tupac said about Pharakon in his last interview was that he was accusing Pharakon of being part of it.  Indeed the Nation of Islam, the religion Pharakon leads has deep Masonic roots.  That is why I remain suspicious of Professor Griff, as long as he's Nation of Islam he could be a dis info agent.

Now Tupac does seem to have felt the name Illuminati was a bit of a distraction, and now so do I, part of the theme of this blog is that the Bavarian Illuminati has a tenuous connection to what's going on today, but it's not really the prime origin of it.

And Tupac lived pre-Zeitgeist, when most of those talking about the Illuminati, the authors of the main books on it, were all Right Wingers talking about it with a Right Wing agenda.  That is one reason Tupac may have wanted to distance his conspiracy theories from that name.

Tupac was someone they had reason to silence, Biggies was probably killed just so to prop up the whole East Vs West thing and distract people.

The Boleyn Family

The Boleyns descend from a half brother of Godfrey de Boulogne and Baldwin I of Jerusalem.

Eustace II Count of Boulogne in addition to his 3 children by Ida also had a son out of wedlock, who's line moved to England where the surname Boulogne eventually changed to Bolyen.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boleyn_family

I've also talked about how Eustace had documented descent from Charlemagne before.

The sisters Mary Boleyn and Anne Bolyen were also through their mother descended from the Howards Dukes of Norfolk.  Who descend from the Plantagenet dynasty.  Also at this time the ties between the Howards and the FitzAlans of Arundel were beginning, they hadn't fully become the same family as they are now yet, but regardless Anne and Mary were both direct descendants of Edmund FitzAlan 9th Earl of Arundel.

The FitzAlans were in origin the same family as the Stuarts, coming from Brittany in the time of William The Conqueror.

Anne Bolyen has no confirmed descendants alive today, but Mary through her two Carey children has many.  Both Carey children were conceived during the time of her affair with Henry VIII, and had been observed to kind of resemble Henry.  That she named the boy Henry is also interesting.

Wikipedia used to say of Mary.

"Mary Boleyn is a distant ancestress of many notables including Winston Churchill, John Davison Rockefeller, P. G. Wodehouse, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon [the late Queen Mother and therefore the Queen], Diana, Princess of Wales, Sarah, Duchess of York, Charles Darwin and Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr."

In the case of Darwin, I was curious if it's through Erasmus or not, it is through Erasmus wife it turns out, and that makes her also an ancestor of Francis Galton.  The Rockerfeller and Churchill connections are of course very interesting to conspiracy theorists as well.

As far as the connection to the current Queen Elizabeth goes.

Mary Boleyn → Catherine Carey → Lettice Knollys → Robert Devereux, 2nd earl of Essex → Lady Frances Devereux → Lady Jane Seymour → Charles Boyle, 3rd Earl of Cork, 2nd Earl of Burlington → Richard Boyle, 4th Earl of Cork, 3rd Earl of Burlington → Charlotte Elizabeth Boyle, Baroness Clifford → Lady Dorothy Cavendish → Lord Charles Cavendish-Bentinck → Rev. Charles William Frederick Cavendish-Bentinck → Nina Cecilia Cavendish-Bentinck → Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother) → Elizabeth II, Queen of Great Britain and N-Ireland

I wonder if the Bolyen descent is why this Queen is the Second Elizabeth.

The Genealogy of Karl of Hesse-Kassel

Charles/Karl of Hesse-Kassel has been talked about on this blog before, he was very important to late 18th Century Freemasonry and the history of the Illuminati.

Through his mother he was a grandson of George II of England (like William V of Orange).  A sister of his mother was married to King Fredrick V of Denmark.  Karl married a daughter of theirs and had a number of children by her.  Interestingly William IV of Orange was through his mother grandson of an earlier Charles Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel.

His sons seem to have died without reproducing..  His oldest daughter married King Fredrick VI of Denmark.  But it was the son of Karl's youngest daughter who later became King Christian IX of Denmark.

Christian IX had a number of children.  Fredrick VIII from whom the current Queen of Denmark descends, and other Scandinavian Royalty as well.  And a daughter Alexandra who became Queen-Consort of England and an ancestor of Elizabeth II.

But most interesting to me is that King George I of Greece was a son of King Christian IX of Denmark.  George I is the direct Pater-lineal Ancestor of the current King in Exile of Greece who is named Constantine, and his children including the Crown Prince.  The oldest son of the Crown-Prince is also named Constantine, Prince Constantine-Alexios.  But the oldest child of the Crown-Prince is a daughter, Princess Marie-Olympia who's now doing magazine cover shoots like she was a Hollywood celebrity or something (I don't think Karl of Hesse-Kassel is the ancestor she gets her looks from).

But through a different son George I of Greece is the direct Pater-lineal ancestor of the husband of Queen Elizabeth.  Making him the paternal progenitor of Prince Charles, William and Harry.

Greece and Denmark having the same Royal Family makes me think of Ezekiel 27 referring to Dan and Javan being linked to each other.  And that same family slowly becoming the British Royal Family can be interesting since I believe Tarshish was ancient Britain of Solomon's time.  And that family descending from a documented Illuminati member and leader of German Freemasonry at the time of the French Revolution is pretty interesting.

Fredrick V of Denmark's ancestry can be traced back through Duchess Marie Elisabeth of Saxony to Anne of Bohemia and Hungry.  Anne was the daughter of Vladislaus II.  Through the Kings of Bohemia her ancestry can be traced back to Wenceslaus I of Bohemia, who was the son of Constance of Hungry, who was the daughter of Agnes of Antioch who was the daughter of Constance of Antioch who was the daughter of Alice of Antioch.

Alice was one of the daughters of Baldwin II of Jerusalem and Morphia of Melitene.  The later of whom's ancestry I discus here.

Update: September 11th 2015.

The direct Pater-lineal Ancestry of Karl of Hesse-Kassel can be traced back to Henry I Langrave of Hesse.

Henry was through his mother's mother also a descendant of Anges of Antioch through her son Andrew II of Hungry.  Through his mother he was heir to the Landgraves of Thuringia.

Through his father Henry II Duke of Barbant he was among other things potential heir to Stephen I of England and Matlida of Blounge daughter of Eustace III of Boulonge brother of Godfrey de Boulonge and Baldwin I of Jerusalem.

Descent from Matilda is the nearest line of descent possible from the original royal family of Crusader Jerusalem.  Everyone formally claiming the title King of Jerusalem today does so from Baldwin II, who's claim to even being a cousin of them seems unverifiable.

Stephen I of England was a grandson of William The Conqueror through his mother.  Through his father he was a descendant of Louis IV of France and Kings of Burgundy.

The direct pater-lineal ancestry of Eustace, Godfrey and Baldwin went back to Baldwin II of Flanders, son of Baldwin I of Flanders and Judith daughter of Charles The Bald, a successor of Charlemagne.  He was also a descendant of Louis IV.  Baldwin I of Flanders seems to be a count already when he shows up in history, it's possible he already had Merovingian ancestry, but we don't know for sure.

In the line from Henry I to Karl is Louise I of Hesse, father of Henry III of Hesse, who's daughter Elisabeth of Hesse married John V of Nassau.  Their son was William I Count of Nassau, who was the father of William I of Orange aka William The Silent.  He had a number of children by a number of wives, one of them was Countess Louise Juliana of Nassau, great grandmother of King George I of England.  William the Silent was also the direct pater-lineal ancestor of William III who became King of England in the Glorious Revolution of 1688.  He is the central figure behind the mythology of the Orange Order and the The Orange Lodge.

The Pater-lineal ancestor of King George I of England was Frederick IV Elector Palatine.  His mother was another Elisabeth of Hesse, daughter of Philip I Landgrave of Hesse.  Another son of her's was Charles IX of Sweden.

And of course the direct Successor of William of Orange was Queen Julliana of the Netherlands, who's husband  Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was one of the original founders of the Bilderberg group. They were the parents of Queen Beatrix.  Also of the Royal Family of the Netherlands was Prince Frederich son of King William Frederick I who was Grand Master of Dutch Freemasonry for much of the 19th Century.

I've talked about the two Dukes of Brunswick during Karl's time before, who Nesta Webster confused with each other.  The paternal common ancestor of both was Ferdinand Albert II Duke of Brunswick.  Through his mother he descended from Maurice Landgrave of Hesse-Kassel.  And the younger Duke is an ancestor of Princess Helena of Nassau and thus of Queen Juliana.

Christian of Hesse-Dramstadt is also a known Illuminati Member inducted in 1783.  The house of Hesse-Dramstadt shares the house of Hesse-Kassel's descent from Henry I of Hesse.  Likewise Frederickt V of Hesse-Hormburg.  Another Illuminatus, Karl August von Sachsen-Wiemar-Eisenach, married Louise daughter of Louis IX of Hesse-Dramstadt (Christian's Sister).  From that marriage descended among other people Helene Duchess of Orleans and thus the current heir to the Orleanist Bourbon Crown.  And Charles Alexander who married Princess Sophie of the Netherlands.  Another brother to Christian was Louise X of Hesse-Dramstadt who was a known member of Amis Reunis Lodge of Paris which became allied with the Illuminati due to the efforts of Bode.

Going back to Frederick V of Denmark.  His paternal grandfather Frederick IV of Denmark was the son of Christian V by Charlotte Amaile of Hesse-Kassael, the daughter of William VI Langrave of Hesse-Kassel.  And she was actually his first born offspring, but standards of the time always favored oldest male over an older woman to be successor.

Update: September 20th 2015

The second wife of Philippe I Duke of Orleans and mother of his successor Philippe II was Elizabeth Charlotte of the Pallatine, daughter of Charles I Louis Elector Palatine and Charlotte of Hesse-Kassel. daughter of William V Langrave of Hesse-Kassel.  The Orelanist house having a genealogical connection to Hesse-Kassel is very interesting.  Charles I Louise himself has descent from both Elisabeth of Hesse and William The Silent.

The daughter of Philippe I of Orelans and Charlotte of Pallatine was Elisabeth Charlotte d'Orleans.  Who was the mother of Prince Charles Alexander de Lorraine.  Who was one of the alleged Grand Masters of the Prior of Sion in Plantard's hoax.  Likewise she was the grandmother of the next alleged Grand Master Maxamillian de Lorraine.  I mention only because I suspect that obvious hoax drew on many real conspiracies.

The Hesse-Kassel family can be shown to have a connection to the occult already well before Karl.  Maurice The Learned (also a direct of ancestor of Charlotte) is an interesting figure, to copy/paste from Terry Melanson's Illuminati Conpsiracey Part One.
Maurice the Learned – It is revealing to note the long association of the Hessen-Kassel family to the occult. One particular ancestor is noteworthy. Karl is a direct descendant of “Maurice the Learned” of Hesse-Cassel (Landgraf Moritz von Hessen-Kassel, 1572-1632). Maurice procured the services of Rosicrucians and Alchemists such as Johannes Rhenanus and Michael Maier. The former served the Prince in many capacities, “working first in his chemical laboratory and towards the end of his life as the Prince’s family doctor. He was also the author of a number of Paracelsian and iatrochemical texts (e.g. Urocriterium Chymiatricum, Marburg, 1609) and clearly a practising alchemist.”45 As for the latter, Maier was a very important figure and well-connected with many of the leading nobility of Europe and other famous occultists such as Robert Fludd. Maier produced an incredible amount of Rosicrucian/alchemical treatises and became the court physician to Maurice around 1614.46 Francis Yates also underscores the fact that the town of Cassel is where the Rosicrucian Manifestos were first published (1614 and 1615).47 Hardly a coincidence, Maurice had already founded the Collegium Mauritianum in 1599, which taught all sorts of advanced arcane studies – while at the same time he controlled “an extensive hermetic alchemical circle.”48 The sudden open appearance of the Rosicrucians and their manifestos – perplexing to most historians – isn’t all that mysterious in an environment such as existed under his rule.
Much more research should be done on the House of Hesse as a whole; they appear to be the fulcrum of the most significant major revivals in western occult tradition.
The Hesse-Kassel family may well be the key to connecting a lot of esoteric mysteries.

Also if the theory about the Count of Saint-Germain being the son of Francis II of Transylvania is true, then his mother was of the house of Hesse also.  Which is interesting since at the end of his life Saint-Germain lived on Karl's estate.  Amusingly Francis II himself was descended from a Zsofia Bathori.

Update 2/26/2016: Barbarossa

The mother of King George I of England was Sophia Countess of Palatine Simmern.  She descends from Philip the Magnanimous Landgrave of Hesse, one of the pater-lineal ancestors of Karl of Hesse-Kassel.  He descends from Anne of Saxony daughter of Frederick I Elector of Saxony.

Frederick of Saxony descends on his mother's side from Henry I Landgrave of Hesse.  But his direct pater-lineal ancestry was from Frederick I Margrave of Meissen.  Frederick of Meissen's mother's pater-lineal descent was from Frederick Barbarossa an important Holy Roman Emperor.

Barbarossa was a descendant of Baldwin IV of Flanders making him a part of one of the most interesting to me lines of descent from Charlemagne and Alfred The Great.  He was also buried in Antioch and has become subject of King in The Mountain type legends, giving him important esoteric significance.

Someone on Amazon has been publishing Kindle Books in Adam Weishaupt's name

They are not real English Translations of what the real Adam Weishaupt wrote.  But they are all on conspiracy related subjects.

I don't know if someone is actually expressing their real beliefs, or they're making fun of Conspiracy Theorists, or it's just a cheap gimmick to make quick money.

But they are out there, so be aware and don't be fooled.

They are here.

One of the books by the real Adam Weishaupt is available in English now, sold on Amazon here.  For a more through look at the Illuminait source documents check out Terry Melanson's research.

Margaret Sanger(Planned Parenthood founder)quotes, All sourced.

I’m not taking these from Pro-Life propaganda sources, these are independently sourced directly from her own writings. Their indisputable.

[We propose to] hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. And we do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

-Commenting on the ‘Negro Project’ in a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, December 10, 1939. - Sanger manuscripts, Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

The third group [of society] are those irresponsible and reckless ones having little regard for the consequences of their acts, or whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers. Many of this group are diseased, feeble-minded, and are of the pauper element dependent upon the normal and fit members of society for their support. There is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.

-Speech quoted in “Birth Control: What It Is, How It Works, What It Will Do.” The Proceedings of the First American Birth Control Conference. Held at the Hotel Plaza, New York City, November 11-12, 1921. Published by the Birth Control Review, Gothic Press, pages 172 and 174.

All of our problems are the result of overbreeding among the working class

-“Morality and Birth Control”, February-March, 1918, pp. 11,14.

As an advocate of birth control I wish … to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the ‘unfit’ and the ‘fit,’ admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation…. On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective.

-“The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda”, October 1921, page 5.

Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems.

-“The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda”, October 1921, page 5.

The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics.

-“The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda”, October 1921, page 5.

..give dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.


-“A Plan for Peace”, April 1932, pp. 107-108

Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan at Silver Lake, New Jersey, one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing… Never before had I looked into a sea of faces like these. I was sure that if I uttered one word, such as abortion, outside the usual vocabulary of these women they would go off into hysteria. And so my address that night had to be in the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand. [npg] In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. The conversation went on and on, and when we were finally through it was too late to return to New York.

-Autobiography 1938, Chapter 29, “While the Doctors Consult”, p. 366.

In passing, we should here recognize the difficulties presented by the idea of ‘fit’ and ‘unfit.’ Who is to decide this question? The grosser, the more obvious, the undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind.

-The Pivot of Civilization1922, Chapter 8, “Dangers of Cradle Competition”

Eugenics aims to arouse the enthusiasm or the interest of the people in the welfare of the world fifteen or twenty generations in the future. On its negative side it shows us that we are paying for and even submitting to the dictates of an ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all—that the wealth of individuals and of states is being diverted from the development and the progress of human expression and civilization.

-The Pivot of Civilization1922, Chapter 8, “Dangers of Cradle Competition”

Our ‘overhead’ expense in segregating the delinquent, the defective and the dependent, in prisons, asylums and permanent homes, our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying … demonstrate our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism. No industrial corporation could maintain its existence upon such a foundation. Yet hardheaded ‘captains of industry,’ financiers who pride themselves upon their cool-headed and keen-sighted business ability are dropping millions into rosewater philanthropies and charities that are silly at best and vicious at worst. In our dealings with such elements there is a bland maladministration and misuse of huge sums that should in all righteousness be used for the development and education of the healthy elements of the community.

-The Pivot of Civilization1922, Chapter 12, “Woman and the Future”

The following is not her’s in origin, but she still said it.

The mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.

-W.E.B. DuBois, Birth Control Review, June 1932. Quoted by Sanger in her proposal for the “Negro Project.”

Below is not directly her’s but from Birth Control Review.

Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.

-Ernst Rudin, Birth Control Review, April 1933.

It is not my desire to turn anyone I disagree with into a 2 Dimensional Cartoon villain. So I will not deny she also expressed legitimate concerns about Women’s rights.  And in fact I'm not as firmly Anti-Abortion as I used to be.

The Great Pyramid was not built by Enoch or any other worshiper of The Biblical God

I have been a believer of the Enochian Pyramid fad in the past.  But I'm not anymore.

I'm not anti Fringe theorizing.  Every lie has some truth in it.  I agree 100% with the arguments against it being built by Kufu.  I own Ken Klein's The Pillar of Enoch, it's a fun documentary (but even when I agreed with the theory I wish he'd have left the UFO stuff out of it).  It definitely seems to be older then Kufu's time.

Because of my view on The Flood, that there was more to it then just water going up and coming down, I'm not as inclined to agree it could have been a Pre-Flood structure.

I recommend the Great Pyramid part of Chris White's Ancient Aliens Debunked.  It was built by Human beings, maybe it's true the Giza Pyramids weren't tombs like the others, but they weren't the product of an Abrahamic Faith.

One of the main popularizers of the Great Pyramid being a Godly structure theory was Charles Taze Russell, founder of the Watch Tower society.  Russell was also a Freemason and not a Casual one.  He was buried at an important Masonic Cemetery with a huge All Seeing Eye Pyramid structure in it.  Other early founders of the theory include John Taylor, who I've fond no documentation of being a Freemason but was interested in a lot of Neo-Pagan stuff.  Then there was Charles Smyth who was also into British Israelism, another doctrine Freemasons like especially the Orange Lodge.

The specific claim of it being built by Enoch has it's origins in Hermetic tradition saying the Pyramids were build by Hermes-Thoth Trismegistus, and them Arabic Alchemist tradition identifying Trismegistus with Enoch.  And that tradition in turn influencing Masonic lore.

Linking the Pyramid to Enoch is an idea that is vital to Masonic lore, among what they borrowed via the Alchemists from Arabian folklore.  Enoch is important to Masonic lore which is why it was Masons who rediscovered the Book of Enoch,  Just look up the Royal Arch of Enoch.

People involved in this "Christian" Pyramidology often argue that New Jerusalem/Yahweh-Shammah could be Pyramid shaped rather then a Cube, which they say is the only way it makes sense for a four sided structure to have a single cornerstone.

It is true that "Corner" is not the best translation of the Hebrew Term, in fact pinnacle could work better.  But that word when used in connection with The Temple seems to refer to a pinnacle above the gate of The Temple, not the Capstone of a Pyramid like structure.

The passage from Josephus cited (Antiquities of The Jews Book 1 Chapter 2 Section 3) about the Pillars of Seth is merely describing simple pillars with info written on them.  The Giza pyramids have no engravings which is the whole foundation of thinking they have a separate purpose from other Egyptian Pyramids to begin with.  And saying Siriad means Egypt is a very recent claim, that term was commonly understood in antiquity as referring to Syria.

But I think Siriad might actually come from the Hebrew place name rendered Sarid in the KJV of Joshua 19:10-12 in the allotment of Zebulun.  Deuteronomy 33:18-19, Moses prophesying of Zebulun with Issachar dwelling among them, refers to "treasures hid in the sand".

Isaiah 19 is a Prophecy, it's about the Future not the past.  The first 17 verses were fulfilled in the 20th Century.

Isaiah 19:19 is the verse in question.
In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.
The claim is made that the Great Pyramid is at the border between Upper and Lower Egypt allowing it to fit both these descriptions.  That is an error.

Where exactly the border was isn't entirely clear, but Lower Egypt consistently always included the entire Delta region and Giza is firmly within the Delta.

Because of the nature of Hebrew poetic expression it is hypothetically possible Isaiah 19:19 could be describing the same thing in two different ways.  But equally possible it's describing two similar yet distinct things.  The question is, is it plausible for the Hebrew terms rendered "Altar" and "Pillar" here to refer to the same thing.  There doesn't seem to be any other Hebrew precedent for it.

An Altar is pretty consistently a place where sacrificial offerings were made.  While a Pillar is just a simple stone structure made in honor of God that isn't an Idol (this Hebrew word is sometimes translated Idol when in reference to things honoring false gods). Since there is no way burnt offerings were made in or on the Great Pyramid, clearly only the latter could even remotely describe the Great Pyramid.  Yet as I showed it is only the former that could fit it's location.

Exodus 24:4 is another verse that uses both these same Hebrew words together, clearly they are separate things.

The way people describe the Great Pyramid lay out as fitting Biblical symbolism is very manipulative, you can do it with anything if you try hard enough.  As Chuck Missler likes to say "If you torture the data long enough, it will confess to anything".

Two Jewish Temples were built in Egypt in ancient history.  Neither of those I believe is the fulfillment of this Prophecy.  But if you want to use structures that have already existed as a model for how this Millennial picture of Egypt might look, they are far more appropriate.

First there was the one on Elephantine Island.  I agree with Bob Cornuke that The Ark of the Covenant and The Mercy Seat were housed there for awhile on their way to Ethiopia.  It is pretty close to where the traditional southern border of Egypt usually was.

Then there is the Leontopolis Temple build by Onias IV after around the time of the Maccabees.  This location could fit the Midst of the Land of Egypt.  And Onias attempted to present it as fulfilling Isaiah 19:18-19 when he built it.

Wikipedia is of course quite skeptical of Josephus.  I am in many places too, but I think everything they criticize in the Onias Letter section is still possible.  As for the discrepancy between what's said in Wars and Antiquities, in Antiquities Josephus fully explains at the beginning he shall be correcting mistakes he made in the earlier Wars.

Nobody expects the French Revolution

Conspiracy Theorists are constantly accused of having an overly simplified view of things.  This is in my view absurd, we're fully aware of the complexities of politics, our theories only add more layers of complexity, not take any away.  Maybe we do indeed sound simplistic about it sometimes, but if you really pay attention we're not, not the best of us.  I kind of addressed this already in one of my earliest posts.  That was made in it's earliest form before I came to many of the conclusions I have now however.

In the early history of Masonic conspiracies, no where is this more frequently an issue then The French Revolution.  By accusing Masonic instigators of being the architects we're accused of being ignorant of the hardships faced by the common people of France that had been building up for generations before modern Freemasonry was even formed in the 17teens.  I can assure you I have no such ignorance, one does not watch all 40 episodes of Rose of Versailles in one day loving every minute of it if they have no sympathy for the plight of peasants.  Also my favorite Musical is Les Miserables, which leads me to recommend this LesMis/RoV AMV.

And I express my Biblical disapproval of Monarchism on another Blog.

It's likely France was targeted precisely because of all the circumstances that made it a fertile ground for Revolution.  But I'll go well beyond that, I do believe Revolution was inevitable in France even if the conspirators had done nothing.  It's more about them seeking to control the Revolution, just as the elite have hijacked and taken control of the Tea Party and Occupy Wallstreet movements today.

The main thing I do not think would have been the case if the Revolution had grown organically is how strongly it was driven by Atheist, Deist and anti-Christian sentiments.  That is something that was inserted by certain egotistical intellectuals who thought the Revolution needed them in order to work.  Yes the Catholic clergy was corrupt and out of touch, but previously in most countries people getting sick of them lead to Protestantism. So anti-Catholic sentiments may have been inevitable, but there were French Protestants who'd been victimized by the Crown before "Rationalism" started.

The claim has been made by some that the King was trying to work with the Revolutionaries to come to some agreement like a Constitutional Monarchy.  I do not currently feel qualified to asses the accuracy of that claim.

For evidence to general Masonic Influence on the Revolution read this article by Terry Meleanson.

There are indeed some conspiracy theorists who feel compelled to tie the Bavarian Illuminati to just one of the many factions among the revolutionaries.  But I don't see things as that simple, just as the modern conspirators attached themselves to Republicans and Democrats, so I believe it was then too.  Any discussion of specifically the Illuminati's role should be viewed in the context of my earlier post on them.

Bode became chief executive of the order in 1784, he traveled to France in 1787.  He recruited many Illuminati from the Masonic Lodges of France.  Particularly the Philalethes.  Among people proven and documented to have become Illuminati at this time were Charles-Pierre-Paul, Marquis de Savalette de Langes (1745-1797) and Alexandre-Louis Roëttiers de Montaleau (1748-1808).  Both of whom had direct ties to the Duke of Orleans, the Grand Master of French Freemasonry leading up to the Revolution.  Montaleau become the head of French Freemasonry after the Revolution.

Another known Illuminati member to contribute to the Revolution was Johann Caspar [Jean Gaspard] Schweizer (1754-1811).

It is popular to speculate members beyond those we can prove, Terry Melanson suspects Mirabeu, and Marco di Luchetti suspects Nicolas Bonneville.  For both of them having defended the Illuminati is the main circumstantial evidence, which Thomas Jefferson also did.

The thing that's important to remember is the Illuminati as it originally was was dying in 1787, Bode helped form a secret society within French Freemasonry at that time, and it's possible only the earliest direct recruits of his were initiated into the Illuminati proper, but those who become part of this new order without such an initiation were no less important to it.

Luchetti seems to feel Bonneville was a direct recruit of Bode however,  If Bode's own records of his 1787 trip had mentioned Bonneville as a recruit I don't think Melanson would be as skeptical of his membership as he is.

The key thing is, almost anyone in French Masonry could have been officially or unofficially a part of what Bode started, it's impossible to know for sure.

Brissiot was also a known Freemason.  Brissiot and Bonneville were the real ideological leaders of the early Revolution, before it was hijacked by jerks like Marat and Robespierre.  Eventually Brissiot and his allies became derogatorily known as the Girondions

The thing that does work against the usual conspiracy theory narrative is that the men most responsible for the Terror (Marat, Danton, Robsepierre, ect) are the ones least likely to have Illuminati connections, and flimsy even in their Masonic connections.  It seems the Masons unleashed a monster they couldn't control.  Buonarroti was the one person with debatable Illuminati ties who was of Robsepierre's way of thinking, he'll be discussed in a future post eventually.

Bonneville's camp were indeed the men in the Revolution most ideologically similar to the political theories advocated by Weishaupt and Kingge.  And besides being so anti-Christian I don't consider what their political ideas were to be the worst.  But the way Weishaupt ran the order showed he tended to be very controlling.  I enjoy a great deal of Luchetti's political analysis, but he slips on the secret society aspect.  Another chief villain of Luchetti's narrative is Buonarroti.

The Illuminati vs Esoteric Freemasonry

I want to use this blog to shoot down many popular myths about the Illuminati, and Secret Societies in general.  (Even that they used the All Seeing Eye and Pyramid as a symbol is one such myth.)  I am a Conspiracy Theorist, but it hurts our credibility when we take at face value so many claims without investigating them.  I love Alex Jones [Update 2016, used to], he's great at breaking down what's going on in the present.  But when he goes back to 18th and 19th century History, he repeats many common mistakes.

In Evangelical Christian circles we want to view the "Illuminati" (which has become a byword for the enemy in general without much care for what the Bavarian Illuminati was) as synonymous with the highest level occult activity, Satanists and Neo-Pagans.  And it backs up that desire that the O.T.O and Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn claim Illuminati ancestry.  I feel like Occult exposing Christians need to stop believing what the occult groups and Freemasons claim about themselves so much.

The truth however is that while the Bavarian Illuminati's rituals superficially incorporated ritualistic and mythological ideas, Adam Weishaupt was actually a devout "Rationalist" who hated the Esoterisism of the Rosicrucians and more mystical brands of Freemasonry (the real ancestors of the O.T.O and Golden Dawn). This fact becomes apparent studying the diligent research of Terry Melanson author of The Perfectibilists, and Jeva Singh-Anand who recently translated Kingge's book Philo's Reply.  Melanson is a fellow conspiracy theorist, Anand is not.  They are among the few who research the Illuminati going back to the oldest contemporary documents, most of which sadly aren't available in English yet.

This conflict has some overlap with his hatred of the Jesuits, (pretty much all Continental Rosecurcians at this time were Jesuits).  But some of the above historians will overlook how you can be an Esoteric and still oppose the Jesutis and the Catholic Church.  Especially those esoterics who were probably in secret serving British Intelligence.

Another important note, Weishaupt's order were not the first to use a name derived from the Latin "Illuminate".  Many of the Esoteric groups Weishaupt hated were associated with terms like Iluminees and Illuminisim.  This has caused researchers to often confuse references to them with the Bavarian Illuminati.  Going back to Barruel and Robinson early on, and still today by authors like Marco Di Luchetti.

I have a theory however.

While the traditional Conspiracy Theory narrative is that the Bavarian Illuminati took over Freemasonry, I'm thinking it might have been the other way around.  The Esoteric Masons infiltrated and took over the Illuminati, then after the Illuminati was "disbanded" they incorporated much of the infrastructure and strategy that Weishaupt had devised into their own political machinations they already had planned.  Still the claim that the Illuminati took over Masonry has more creditably then it's given credit for, upon studying provable Illuminati members, some either already were or become the highest ranking Masons in their respective countries.

The Strict Observance Rite was a popular mystical Masonic order during the mid 18th Century.  This order became a bit of a problem after it's founder died.  He had made up a story about mysterious unseen superiors overseeing the order, but it seems they didn't actually exist.  It was a strict observance lodge Weishaupt was initiated into in 1777 the year after he founded the Illuminati.

In 1782 Karl Langrave of Hesse-Kassel, who was the second highest ranking man in German Freemasonry, organized a Masonic conference at Wilhelmsbad to decide what to do about the Strict Observance Rite (which was among the many secret societies he himself was a member of).  It wound up being dissolved, and as Melenson's article shows many members joined the Bavarian Illuminati either right then or in the coming months.  These included Karl of Hesse-Kassel himself, and the highest ranking man in German Freemasonry, the Duke of Brunswick (there were two at this time, don't confuse them as Nesta Webster did, the other was his nephew and not a known Illuminati member or Mason, though he was sympathetic to the Revolutionaries in-spite his involvement in the war against them).

Karl would latter claim in his official memoirs that he joined the order to try and sabotage their political agenda, but I think that was saving face.  Karl was very deeply involved in the occult/esoteric side of Masonry.  It was he who lodged the Comte de Saint-Germain during the last years of his Life.  Saint-Germain first popped up in England, I think he was possibly a British Spy.

But also among the Wilhelmsbad recruits was Johann Joachim Christopher Bode.  He was deeply involved in Esoteric Masonry before joining the Illuminati, supposedly he turned his back on Mysticism and became a Rationalist like Weishaupt when he joined the Illuminati.  But I have trouble believing that, one doesn't simply reject the Esoteric so easily when they'd been deeply involved in it.  I think he was claiming that to gain the trust of Weishaupt and the other leaders of the order.

After the order was "disbanded" in 1784, Bode became the de facto chief executive of the order.  It was he who traveled to France in 1787, which I shall expand on in future posts.

Saint-Martin is an important figure in the history of the Occult at this time.  He was friends with Nicolas Bonneville (who was an Illuminati sympathizer but not quite a confirmed member, and he also wrote against the Jesuits).

Also important to the History of Esoteric Freemasonry was the order of Memphis-Misraim.

Other known esoterics and occultists who become Illuminati members include Johann Caspar [Jean Gaspard] Schweizer (1754-1811), Count Franz Joseph von Kolowrat-Liebensteinsky (b. 1748), and probably most recruited from the French Philadelthes.  I could also mention Goethe but there is disagreement on how active his membership was.

Mayer Rothschild did not create the Bavarian Illuminati

One of the most persistent myths about the origin of the Illuminati you frequently see being repeated online without any source is a claim that Weishaupt was recruited to form the Illuminati by Mayer Amschel Rothschild.

The story goes that either in 1770 or 1773 Rothschild presented Weishaupt at a meeting to 12 unidentified business partners.

The facts are that Mayer Rothschild was still pretty small potatoes when the Illuminati was founded in 1776, just a local business man in Frankfurt. No conceivable way he could have had influence over anyone at Ingolstadt university.  It was following the French Revolution that his business really began to take off.  And not till the 19th Century he truly became an International Banker.

Also all through the 18th Century both the Bavarian Illuminati and Freemasonry strictly forbid Jews from joining.

His tenuous connection to the Illuminati is through Wilhelm IX of Hesse-Kassel, he was patronaged by him since the 1760s and eventually became his main Banker.  Wilhelm himself is not known to have been either Illuminati or a Mason.  But his brother Karl Langrave of Hesse-Kassel was the number two man in German Freemasonry and the Strict Observance Rite.  And among the former Strict Observance members who joined the Illuminati after the Masonic Congress at Wilhelmsbad in 1782.  He'll be a subject of future posts of this blog.

There is one other connection, Baron Karl Theodor Dalberg (1744-1817)

The Rothschilds certainly became part of the elite over time.  But they didn't start it.
