Freemasons and the symbols on the dollar bill
Almost every American looks at a one dollar bill on a daily basis, but few view it for it's historic significance. The Freemasons play a significant role in our government but go unseen by the average American. To show just how much they are involved, the back of the one dollar bill is an excellent place to look.
The left side of the bill displays an unfinished pyramid with the all seeing eye above it. The unfinished pyramid is significant for two reasons. The first is the reason that the pyramid is unfinished. The Freemasons believe that their work will go unfinished in their lifetime on earth, and it continues on into the afterlife. If the square and compass, symbols of the Freemasons, are put over the pyramid, it spells the word Mason. Above the pyramid is the all seeing eye representing the Illuminati. The true connection between these two secret organizations is unclear. Some historians believe they have evidence that the Freemasons branched off from the Illuminati, while others argue there is little connection. Above the eye of the Illuminati are the latin words "Annuit Coeptis", roughly translating to He favors us. Freemason manuals often talk about worshiping their "Dark God". Although the Freemasons publicly deny it, many past members and religious leaders warn of the Stanic rituals and hidden beliefs. The ribbon under the pyramid contains the latin words Novus Ordo Seclorum, roughly translating into a "a new order for the ages". The exact meaning of this phrase is also one of some debate. Conspiracy theorist argue that this refers to the coming of a New World Order where the lives of non-Freemasons will be strictly regulated and controlled, however it may simply refer to the emergence of a new country. On the bottom of the pyramid are the roman numerals MDCCLXXVI or 1776. There is little argument that this represents the signing of the Delcaration of Independence.
To the right of the word one and "In God we trust" is the seal of the United States of America. The bird in the center of the current seal is clearly a Bald Eagle, however this wasn't always the case. The original seal had a bird that was longer and thinner with little resemblance to the Bald Eagle, but very closely resembling the mythical fire bird, the Phoneix. The seal was later changed to the Bald Eagle that we are accustomed to today. The Eagle has thrity-two feathers on its dexter wing. This is the number of normal degrees of the Scotish Rite of Freemasonry, while the sinister wing contains one additional feather for the thrity-third degree awarded for outstanding service. The nine tail feathers are the degrees for the York Rite. The York Rite is the American rite, whereas the Scotish Rite has ties to France. This symbolizes the allience between the American and French to win the Americans freedom from England. The thirteen stars above the head of the eagle form the Star of David. Kind David was devoted to building a temple to his God, just as the Freemasons are to their "Dark God". In the beak of the bird is a scroll containing the latin phrse E PLURIBUS UNUM, translating into "of many one" which is reminder of the Freemasons bond to his fellow Freemasons.
The one dollar bill is loaded with symbolism. It's designers, such as Bengamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, along with most of the men from history referred to as the forefathers had close ties to the Freemasons. The history of the United States can not be studied without also studying the Freesmasons.
Authors note: It is the hope of the author that this article is not viewed as another conspiracy theory. As was pointed out, there are many beliefs as to the exact meaning of some of these symbols. You pick up the dollar bill countless times, but how often have you really looked at it. We are creatures of habit. Once we get accustomed to being exposed to certain things, everything becomes a routine. The real point of this article was to create what I call the "WOW" effect. This article is a sized down version of a two page decriptive paper I wrote in college. A copy of my paper was passed around by my professor, and I had almost everyone come to me in total disbelief. They couldn't believe they had missed so much. This is the effect that I like to create. Although everything that I have written came from hours and hours of research by numerous sources and I am confident in the facts of my article, I don't want you to take my word for it, because that isn't the point of my writings. As you proceed through your daily routine, please observe things a little closer, and never ever let someone else think for you, including the T.V., politicians, newspapers, writers, teachers, etc. If you can do this, it is my belief that your life will change for the better.
