The Real Story of the Founding Fathers and the Illuminati, Part 1
Were the Founding Fathers part of a vast conspiracy to create a New World Order?
Is the coinciding date of the Declaration of Independence and the founding of the Order of the Illuminati no accident?
>Believe it nor not, some people think so. The following is an excerpt of a paper I wrote, as a result of research on this subject that I performed during a two-year period. I performed this research, not because I found the claims of these conspiracy theorists compelling. I performed this research (1) because several people, who have become aware of a huge slide towards globalism in recent decades, have found these theories compelling, and (2) because the true story behind the many myths reveals how our American society commenced its downhill journey.
The day was August 2, 1776. Fifty-six American men stepped forward one by one to affix their signatures to the Declaration of Independence, for which they would willingly lay down their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor.” It was this document and the men who forged it which inaugurated a long war and a new nation, based upon principles that had never before been the hallmark of any other nation in world history. New America was not to be governed by a supreme man or group of men, but was rather to be governed by law under which the people consented to govern themselves. America, by its unique form of government, has changed the face of modern civilization, and its Constitution and federal-republican form of government has been admired and copied, although somewhat imperfectly, in other parts of the world. But another incident occurred earlier that same year, which also was to change the face of modern philosophical thinking behind the scenes of world events. According to an exposé-writer on the Illuminati, on May 1, 1776, the Order of the Illuminati was officially initiated by Adam Weishaupt in Bavaria, Germany, on May 1, 1776. (1)
Interestingly, the philosophy advanced by this order included the democratic ideals of liberty and equality. The goal of this society was to spread these ideas around the world, along with the ideals that supposedly made a pure democracy practical. In truth, however, the Illuminati was aiming to conquer the world with the false ideologies of radical humanism, and abolish all religious and civil institutions worldwide. To achieve this goal, they would covertly incite anarchical revolutions in nations, which would overthrow not only traditional governments, but also traditional morals and societal structure.
Could it have been that the Declaration of Independence, created the same year as the Illuminati came into being was actually an advancement of the dastardly goals of the Illuminati? Did not the American Revolution assert the right of the masses to abandon traditional values in exchange for a new secular-humanist philosophy? As plausible as this view of the American establishment may seem upon first glance of the two coinciding dates, the little-known truth is that the ideals of the Illuminati and those of the Founding Fathers were diametrically opposed to one another. The majority of the Founding Fathers dreaded the influence that the Illuminati might have upon America, and spent much time and effort to prevent and to discourage the American people from accepting its influence. In fact, much of the early political tumult in our republic among the Founding Fathers themselves can be traced to their efforts to defend this country from the pernicious doctrines of the Illuminati.
After nearly a century of revisionism, Americans have become rather confused about our true history. Twentieth-century revisionism has handed down to Americans a lie that America is a democracy, where the voice of the majority of the people reigns supreme over the dictates of government, law, or Christianity. Twentieth century revisionism has also led many Americans to believe that our Founding Fathers opposed Christianity and biblical principles. One writer, who maintains this error, stated:
The United States of America is not [built] upon Christian values. Most of our Founding Fathers were … occultists. … The Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence are all a farce and perhaps the greatest deception of all times. … America has a ‘Secret Destiny’, which is not known to the average American people. This ‘Secret Destiny’ is a New World Order and a One World Government; a One World Religion, which is NOT Christianity … The Founding Fathers knew about this Secret Destiny and supported it. (2)
This view, however, is erroneous for two major reasons. The first reason is that it is chronologically and mathematically impossible for the Illuminati to have planned American independence. American independence was already pending years before the Illuminati was even inaugurated. As aforementioned, the Illuminati was officially established on May 1, 1776. But recall that the Battle of Lexington, which was the final unofficial ignition of the American Revolutionary War, took place more than a year previous, on April 19, 1775. John Adams, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and an early advocate of the separation of the American colonies from Britain, dated the beginning of the American Revolution and the move for national independence even further back. He said: “The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington.” (3)
We can see, therefore, that at least a full decade and a half before the Order of the Illuminati was in existence, Americans were already seriously contemplating separating from Great Britain and forming their own government.
In addition to the fact that it is chronologically impossible for the Illuminati to have planned American independence, it is mathematically impossible for the Illuminati to have planned American independence is that the Founding Fathers could not have known that the Bavarian Illuminati even existed in time for the Declaration of Independence to be drafted, or for the measure of national independence to be proposed.
Again, since it is important to keep in mind, the Illuminati officially started on May 1, 1776. The Declaration of Independence was approved by Congress on July 4, 1776, as we all know. That means that one month (approximately four weeks) and three days after the Illuminati was formed, the Second Continental Congress officially declared American independence from Great Britain. If the Bavarian Illuminati, on the very day that they were initiated, had sent word, by ship of course, from Germany to America to tell any of their would-be allies that the Illuminati was now in existence, that message would have reached the shores of the United States by the end of the year 1776.
According to The Mariners’ Museum: “In the 17th and 18th centuries, … [t]he average voyage from England to Virginia took seven or eight weeks. Wind and the storms that form along the eastern seaboard often added another week or two to the trip.” (4) Obviously, Americans would not have known about the Illuminati until after the struggle for national independence was well under way.
In addition to the chronological and mathematical arguments standing formidably against the idea that our independence and therefore our government was part of an Illuminati conspiracy, is the fact that the ideologies of the Illuminati and those of America’s Founding Fathers and founding principles stand in stark contrast to one another. As a matter of fact, the two ideologies are diametrically opposed to one another, and, as we shall investigate in the following pages, they wage an incessant and violent war against each other. Our Founding Fathers made it perfectly clear that our founding documents were forged in the fundamental principles of Christianity. One of the most succinct statements which demonstrates this truth is the declaration made by John Quincy Adams, son of John Adams, American patriot:
[T]he birth-day of the nation … forms a leading event in the progress of the gospel dispensation[.] Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission on earth? That it laid the corner stone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity, and gave to the world the irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies, announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Savior and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets six hundred years before? (5)
The Illuminati, on the other hand, opposed the Gospel of Christ, and offered deism, which was to eventually lead into atheism, as a substitute. As John Robison, who wrote a thorough exposé on the Illuminati, declared concerning that body:
He [Weishaupt] employs the Christian Religion, which he thinks a falsehood, and which he is afterwards to explode, as the mean for inviting Christians of every denomination, and gradually cajoling them, by clearing up their Christian doubts in succession, till he lands them in Deism. (6)
