The Illuminati is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically, the name usually refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on 1 May 1776. The society’s goals were to oppose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power. “The order of the day,” they wrote in their general statutes, “is to put an end to the machinations of the purveyors of injustice, to control them without dominating them”. The Illuminati along with Freemasonry and other secret societies were outlawed through edict, by the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore, with the encouragement of the Roman Catholic Church, in 1784, 1785, 1787 and 1790. In the several years following, the group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed that they continued underground and were responsible for the French Revolution
Illuminati were a real order of real people with very real goals and aims which did not include world domination. In fact, the reason behind creating their order back in 1776 can be interpreted as a battle against what we consider them to be nowadays. Even so, if you are interested in hearing the other point of view, which you should be inclined to do if you are interested in the matter, take a look at another of our lists on why the Illuminati is real and a threat to society. Let’s take a look at what’s on the other hand.
Take these words for what they are but you can righteously say that conspiracy theorists ultimately fail to build a logical, explainable link between events. Whenever a big event such as an act of terrorism or the death of an important person occurs, thousands of people who sit in their basements with their HAM radios and machine guns will scream it was the Illuminati. They will say that it was done to silence people knowing the truth or tip the scales in a conflict without seeming like any of the offending parties did it. However, there is mostly absolutely no logical relations between these things and there are way too many against. Think of it as thanking Jesus for your successful surgery instead of the team of surgeons who worked on you for twenty hours.
So do you think is Illuminati is real or a myth?
