30 Days of Random Topics: Conspiracies

Day 2 of 30 Days of Random Blog Topics: Talk about a Conspiracy.

Man could this topic be any better for me? Well maybe if it was about the Space Time Continuum, cults, or serial killers but otherwise conspiracies are about as good as it gets.

Now it doesn't say talk about conspiracy theories in general like black helicopters, FEMA, reeducation camps, assassination plots, and Area 51. It says to talk about A conspiracy so I have to pick one. So I will talk about my most favorite conspiracy theory EVER.

Up until a few years ago if I said Illuminati most people would have no idea what I was talking about. The move "The Davinci Code" came out a few years ago and now people think they know what the Illuminati are about. I personally have never seen the movie but I keep meaning to just so I can see what it says about the Illuminati.

My interest in the Illuminati started in the early 90's. A friend of mine gave me to book "The Illuminati Trilogy" and I was hooked.

Basically the book is a satirical science fiction book that covers the gambit of conspiracy theories and ties them all together by blaming them all on the Illuminati.

That got me interested in them and so I did a little research. What I found was very interesting and also very involved. But here for your reading pleasure is a short version.

The Illuminate are a secret society that was originally started in the 1700's. It was comprised of the riches, most powerful, and brightest individuals of the time. Together they have conspired to  control all the world governments  since that time.

They most recently have been tied to an American Secret society located in Northern California called the Bohemian Club.   They meet on a 2700 acre camp that is heavily guarded. Some of the most powerful people in the world meet there together every summer for "rest and recreation".

There are many rituals and bizarre practices that go on there. Seems like the perfect set up for a secret organization like the Illuminati to me.

This is a photo of the owl statue where one of their most bizarre and documented rituals takes place.

Anyway I love the idea behind these "One World Nation" secret society groups. The idea that there is one group behind all the conspiracies is so cool!

  1. I love the Jasper Fforde "Thursday Next" series. In it, there is a Book World where different genres are like countries and the characters in the books live regular lives. Anyway, Conspiracy Books occupy their own little space in Fforde's world and the worst possible thing that could happen to them is that a conspiracy be proven TRUE because then they get transferred to Nonfiction and lose their entire target audience, who really prefer the mysterious and speculative to the dry and proven.
