The belief that the Freemasons had a lot to do in the construction (sometimes literal) of the United States is fairly widespread. For some people, particularly those who tend to investigate possible conspiracies, the relationships that exist between the Freemasons and the American giant is not a coincidence.
Here are 8 strange connections:
1 – The Constitution of the United States is based on writings masonic
The Constitution of the United States has many links with the Constitutions of Anderson, written and published in 1723 by British Freemason James Anderson, which would be edited and reprinted by Benjamin Franklin (another Freemason) 11 years later in 1734.
It is widely accepted that this was the first Masonic book printed in the United States and that deeply influenced many notable Americans of the period.
If we look at the Constitution of the United States, which came into effect in March of 1789, this contains a few sections that seem to have been drawn from the Masonic text, in particular, those relating to freedom of expression, citizenship rights and the vote of each man.
2 – Washington D. C.
The design of the capital of the United States is certainly intriguing because of their actions, symmetries, and angles involved in the planning of the streets. According to some, the whole design of the city describes masonic symbols, in particular, the Goathead Pentagram very associated with satanic cults.
Agree with those who believe in this fact, the White House is the southernmost point of the pentagram; the first three points are marked by bowers Dupont, Logan, and Scott; and the points to the left and to the right are marked for the roundabout at Washington Square and Mt. Vernon, respectively.
If this “design” is intentional or not is quite debatable, like if satanism is something that the freemasons practice within their walls.
3 – The Capitol building is a “reconstruction” of the temple of Solomon
In addition to the apparent influence of Masonic designs of Washington, it is said that the Capitol building is not only full of symbolism but is also a “reconstruction” of the Temple of Solomon, something like an American Masonic version.
Inside the building, below the dome, there is a detailed painting of George Washington, where he portrayed him as a deity, described as “the American Christ“. Interestingly, the divinity of Jesus is often portrayed in the same way.
The areas surrounding the Capitol are strikingly similar to other suspiciously masonic places, another fact that supports this hypothesis.
4 – Albert Pike and the Knights of the golden circle
A very controversial figure in U.S. history is Albert Pike, who served as general of the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Also was a recognized and even revered freemason.
Pike also saves connections (not tested) with the Knights of the Golden Circle, a group that was a sort of precursor of the Ku Klux Klan (of which Pike would also be accused of promoting) and they would help the Confederacy during the internal conflict. Some of the accusations even claim that Pike was a rampant satanist, which, given the Masonic connections and the apparent satanic design of Washington D. C. may not be too far-fetched.
A controversy even more interesting about Albert Pike is the enormous treasure of gold pieces hidden at the end of the Civil War. Even though this gold has never been recovered, as far as we know, legend says it was hidden at the end of the war, perhaps in the event that the Confederate army could come back again.
5 – The Masonic ceremony the cornerstone of the White House
As the cornerstone of the Capitol building was subject to Masonic ritual, so what was the cornerstone of the White House? George Washington oversaw this ritual, as well as the design of the White House. Many of the builders of the White House also had strong connections to freemasons.
Interestingly, it is said that the whereabouts of the miss-angle original is unknown. The story tells that after the end of the ceremony, the parties involved took the opportunity to take a few drinks. It seems that they drank so much that no one could remember the actual location of the precious cornerstone.
6 – The inauguration and the oath of the president
During the inauguration of every president of the United States, all of them must keep the oath with a Bible. This tradition is due in part to George Washington, who, as he prepared to take the oath, stated that he had to have a Bible to do so in accordance with their beliefs (Masonic) and the rituals of the same.
The story has it that someone was sent to a Masonic lodge library of New York to borrow a Bible so that George Washington could do the oath, and this has been since replicated by several presidents. It is even rumored that some of them used the same Bible as George Washington.
7 – Many founding fathers were Masons
Although it is known that 14 presidents of the United States were Freemasons, representing around a third of all the presidents in the history of the United States, the proportion of the Founding Fathers of the United States who were freemasons was something similar.
For example, of the 39 men who put their signature on the Constitution of the United States, 13 were recognized as Freemasons. Several years before, a total of 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence, 9 of whom were Freemasons, including respected American historical figures such as John Hancock and Benjamin Franklin.
In particular, Benjamin Franklin is considered a figure immensely important in the United States during this time. He was considered to be the best scientist in the United States and an “intermediary” among the key politicians even when he was president. He is also the only person who signed the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Treaty of Paris.
8 – Connections with ancient Egypt
Apparently, there are many connections between ancient Egypt in American society. The obelisk of Washington without going further is connected with the many obelisks of ancient Egypt.
The “all-seeing eye” located above a pyramid, a symbol that it says is key to the Freemasons and is present on every dollar bill, goes back to the culture of ancient Egyptians, more specifically the eye of Ra. Many of the architectural characteristics of Washington, D. C., in particular columns, are inspired by the Greek architecture, which in turn was influenced by the ancient Egyptian society.
