Adam Weishaupt Quote

“The most wonderful thing of all is that the distinguished Lutheran and Calvinist theologians who belong to our order really believe that they see in it (Illuminati) the true and genuine sense of Christian Religion. Oh mortal man, is there anything you cannot be made to believe?”

~ Adam Weishaupt

People will believe anything if it is preposterous enough.For example: Millions of people believe that a walking , talking snake talked a woman into eating some forbidden fruit, and by this action , all the trouble to befall mankind was started.. And we think that the Mormons have a strange religion.

Jim, sort of a loose, denominational specific, interpretation but, point well made. Like with all religions, political believers will believe just about anything if it will support their sordid life style. No one need dig too deep to find truth, justifications might be thwarted. New, surface, and self gratifying interpretations are sufficient, especially if supported in number. Freedom and liberty come at too high a cost, that being personal responsibility without tyrannical controls. Dr. Jones has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt the government's explanations to 9/11 are absolutely false but, as of yet, the guilty are still hidden from the light. To be politically/religiously correct then, one must believe the government's (including the fourth branch - the media) explanations to justify war mongering, fiscal policy, etc.

Manipulating the masses is achieved by many means, primary organized religion, fear, debt, and keeping the population dumb – hence the church, the new bogyman terrorism, and the lack of funding education. The true perpetrators are those who press buttons behind closed doors and what is even more concerning is that they are in league with each other as their interests are the same, money, power, and control. As Mike said we will never know the truth behind 9-11 or the other calamitous results of decision made by those with no faces, not on behalf of the people, but initiated by those cowards who never show their identity - the last line said it all.

Thank you so much. I would like to see more quotes shedding light (and ILLUMINATION ) as to where and how this mess originated.

...And then they all laughed as the new recruits rode a goat.

Not sure how to rate the quote -- thumbs down for Weishaupt himself, but thumbs up for the truth behind the deception of the Illuminati and other secret organizations whose members serve evil in the name of good. The common man should know that there is a concerted effort to deceive people out of their sovereign powers, and humankind has shown itself to be capable of believing ANYTHING.

Irrelevant people.

This just goes to show that if you dress up a wolf, in sheep skins, most people will think that it is harmless. This is because they refuse to see the truth, and no one knows this better than the wolves. These people are not Illuminati. They are not illuminated, elevated, nor are they evolved. They are tyrants, and you can not placate a tyrant, he will never understand compassion or mercy, all that he will understand is courage and force. (T.Roosevelt) The price we pay for freedom is eternal vigilance. (T.Jefferson) and anyone unwilling to disturbe their comfort to preserve their freedom, deserves to be neither comfortable nor free.(B.Franklin) The people are the true rulers of the world, but only if they take that rightful position.

Those who push buttons behind hidden doors can show a person who knows the truth that they are afraid of the people. This means that they are cowards.

We can never know the truth about 9/11? What about the $240 Billion in securities that were due on September 12, 2001, held by three securities companies in the twin towers? Get on youtube and do some research.

Why do people feel it is OK to go about posting unsourced quotes on the internet? You'd think they'd want to identify the source, at least to satisfy their own curiosity.

Not only is this practice disruptive. It is also very disrespectful towards their intended readers. It tells them that they owe it to the poster to give them the benefit of a doubt and that they don't deserve the right to look into the information that is being presented.

I believe that the children of the world are trying to make me believe that nothing means something and everything means nothing.
