The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”) 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 above description comes from Wikipedia, that user-created source of information for nearly every subject under the sun. However, according to the ‘official’ Illuminati website –
The Illuminati is an elite organization of world leaders, business authorities, innovators, artists, and other influential members of this planet. Our coalition unites influencers of all political, religious, and geographical backgrounds to further the prosperity of the human species as a whole.
While many of our operations require anonymity for the safety of our members, we strive to create a better understanding between us and the people we have been entrusted to protect.
Is the Illuminati real as far as certain celebrities being members of the anonymous organization? From what I have researched on the matter, the Illuminati is mainly mythical. I perused a site with a supposed ‘ revealing confession’ from a former member, and it sounded like typical conspiracy theorist bullshit.
But what about all those celebrities and other well-known figures putting the OK sign around their eyes or throwing out the Diamond hand symbol in photos and videos? Well, maybe they didn’t know what else to do with their hands! They could just as easily have shown us the Devil’s Triad or Peace sign or V for Victory or whatever, you say. Why these hand signs associated with the Illuminati?
Don’t ask me. I really don’t believe in the Illuminati, never have and never will. I find it interesting if not a bit insane, that there are millions of deluded individuals out there who believe the Illuminati is real. Just because someone has a great deal of money or is famous does not make them a member of some secret society. Besides, if they actually were members, would they not keep it a secret as much as possible? I don’t think they’d give it away…besides. if this Illuminati group has so much power, why are there multiple Internet stories and articles and such exposing it? Why are there so many Youtube videos revealing the truth behind its membership, and all the symbols associated with this so-called secret society?
Lady Gaga, President Obama, Beyonce, Warren Buffet, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown, the Kardashians, Pharrell Williams, Lindsay Lohan, Drake, Jay Z, Madonna, and all those others are not members of the Illuminati. They are simply a bunch of over-paid, not very talented people who don’t know how to pose for a photo shoot. Some of them, I gather, are flashing these ‘Illuminati’ symbols just because they know it will get a rise out of a lot of misguided idiots.
John F. Kennedy, Jim Morrison, Malcolm X, Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain, and all the rest were not killed by the Illuminati, and that goes for Prince as well.
There is no Illuminati, period.
