Does the Illuminati still exist?
While I would have to say the answer is a resounding no, I honestly can’t be for certain. What I can say for certain though is that all of the evidence pointing to the Illuminati being real is far from believable. I mean some of the stories out there are pretty freaking crazy to be honest. Taking over the music industry to influence us I can somewhat deal with, but the world being run by lizard people? Really?!?
I do have to admit it was kind of fun doing Illuminati research though, as some of the videos were highly entertaining. One of my favorite Illuminati videos to watch was from BuzzFeed and you can check it out below.
The real Illuminati though was created by a German philosopher and professor named Adam Weishaupt on May 1, 1776 in Ingolstadt, Bavaria. Essentially, the Illuminati was formed to enlighten its members to reject the widespread superstition and religious beliefs that was forced upon the public at large. In fact, the Illuminati actually stood for “the enlightened” and was meant to help free the people from injustice.
However, all secret societies were banned by the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore in 1784, 1785, 1787 and 1790. It’s widely believed that the Illuminati continued to exist even after being banned, but there’s no real evidence to prove this.
While I’m sure that super rich people all over the world are still trying to control us, I don’t think it’s quite as simple as conspiracy theorists make it out to be. It is a fun story to tell though so I’ll just let everyone believe what they want. Who knows, maybe I’m wrong?
