Adam Weishaupt would turn in his grave if he knew of the endless conspiracy theories that he created along with Illuminati.
An 18 century Bavarian thinker and Professor, the founder of Illuminati brought change to our world through Illuminati.
- Even though Johann Adam Weishaupt is not alive today, people believe that his ideology is a danger to the existence of our planet.
- Born in the year 1748, in the city of Ingolstadt (part of modern Germany), the professor founded Illuminati in fairly recent times, relatively to the age of our planet.
- But it was years before science developed technology that is the building block of today’s society when he created the Illuminati.
- Adam Weishaupt studied and served as a professor of Natural and canon law at the University of Ingolstadt.
Illuminati’s founder and the father of Conspiracies
- Adam Weishaupt became the father of conspiracies in 1784 when the Bavarian state realised what the professor actually involved himself in.
- Secret papers that Bavarian officials disclosed to the public show the various rituals of the Illuminati.
- Professor Weishaupt created his idea system during the Era known famously as the age of enlightenment.
- His idea? To build a new way of thinking that he is still known for, ‘illumination’.
- The ideas of Illuminati have consequently led to drastic shifts that resonate in the way European states are run, even today.
- Weishaupt never stands in the way of religious beliefs. His ideas stand against the prejudices that religion created 2 millennia ago and still exists in our society today.
- The first Illuminati met on a summer night of May 1, 1776. Meeting under the cover of night in deep woods of a forest close to Ingolstadt, the five men establish rules to govern this society.
The Illuminati idea; not conspiracies
- This society functioned with three levels of hierarchy: Novice, Minerval and Illuminated Minerval.
- Minerva is in reference to the Roman goddess of Wisdom, Minerva. Moving up in the hierarchy of Illumination involved specific rituals.
- Let’s take an example. If you are a Novice trying to turn into Minerval, you will need to present extremely personal and apparently spiteful details of your life.
- This includes a detail report on the titles of the books you own, the identity of those you consider enemies and the bad parts of your character.
- If you were to initiate as a Minerval, you need to promise all your worldly belongings as a sacrifice to the people of your society.
- The true aim of Illuminati was to spread truth and knowledge all across the world. Illuminati is an idea that tries to change the world, to take humanity ahead, in the right direction.
- The Illuminati, created by Adam Weishaupt, always had the intention of “a state of liberty and more equality.”
- The Illuminati order attained 600 members by the end of 1782. Two years later, historians believe, the society had between 2,000 to 3,000 members.
History of Illuminati and The French Revolution Connection
- With the beginning of the French Revolution against Versailles in 1789, Illuminati gained a reputation for trying to bring a similar revolt against the Bavarian regime in place.
- In truth, Weishaupt was a believer in reformation, not revolution. This is how societal thinking differed, especially when talking about radical shifts.
- This is only the beginning of how ideas have revolutionised the world. Consequent creation of mythological conspiracy theories is only a sum total of ideas.
- Today, we stray further away from the truth today. This is significantly shameful because of our lack of thinking for ourselves.
