Will “The Solomon Key” provide real insight into Masonic symbolism, or just tell us what they want us to think

Question by PAUL: Will “The Solomon Key” provide real insight into Masonic symbolism, or just tell us what they want us to think
If the Freemasons are a branch of the world’s ruling elite and they have a “master plan,” whether it is in the best interest of everyone else or not, wouldn’t they prefer to remain as a secret society?

Say that this organization was tied to the most powerful organization in the world; imagine a system similar to that in the book 1984 where only the news and information that they choose is that which is released, and everything else is destroyed or altered.

“History is written by the winners,” it is said, which is interchangeable with “History is written by those who hold the most power.”

Enter Dan Brown, who claims to be someone who will provide us with the answers these questions that people are beginning to ask about Freemasons, Illuminati, and Skull and Bones.

If the nature of these organizations is indeed a secret and it is in their best interest to keep it that way, then they wouldn’t want someone revealing their secrets, would they?
You would think that such a group has power that is at LEAST equal to that of an organized crime gang like the Mafia, so they wouldn’t hesitate to kill someone, especially if they are above the law.

So then who is Dan Brown? Merely an agent of these organizations, sent to give us an idea of what we SHOULD THINK about these symbols and organizations?

If he was really telling us the truth, wouldn’t his life be in danger?

This question is posted to Mythology and Folklore because it deals with something that many would regard as “Conspiracy Theory.” But I think it is far more ignorant and dangerous to believe that everything we’re told is the truth.
god of thunder, I was about to post a disclaimer asking people to refrain from answering if they felt this was nothing more than inane conspiracy theorist drivel, but I had hoped that people would use their better judgment and it appears you have not.

Okay, so if you’re a Freemason then what degree are you? I hardly doubt you’re deep enough in it to know what the hell I’m talking about.
Then what rank/level/degree are you?

You haven’t even backed up your argument as to why my question is stupid. You only called it stupid and said you were a mason. That’s hardly credible enough to be a legitimate argument.

Best answer:

Answer by god of thunder
Well I have absolutely no hopeof you believing this, but everything you just wrote is garbage. none of it’s true. I’m a Freemason, so i ought to know. but like i said, you get a kick out of having your little conspiracy theories, so go ahead and believe what you want. haha you are probably wondering if the msons knew you were going to post this question, and that’s why i answered so fast. ridiculous
