Why is it that when you write illuminati. backward you get to that site? Check it out. What do you think?

Itanimulli…… com

The novel is of course completely fictitious though inspired by the name of the real, original Illuminati, a 17C philosophers' and theologians' talking-shop.

There is, I was surprised to find, a modern, self-styled "Illuminati", allegedly joined only by the Very Important; grandiose but unable to invent its own name. Led by "Grand Lord Simon", the pretentious web-site, complete with its own typing errors and capitals, tells us:

The Illuminati is an elite organization of world leaders, business authorities, , innovators, artists, and other influential members of this planet. Our coalition unite influencers of all political, religious, and geographical backgrounds to further the prosperity of the human species as a whole.[/quote]

How this Simon bloke, whoever he is, thinks artists can influence anyone except their own customers, I do not know, but it shows vanity knows no bounds. Go into the "About" page and the grandiosity advances in leaps and bounds.


[i]Then I looked further and my amusement became concern...[/i]

Want to join? Simply pay US$200 or 2500 South African Rand (I'll come back to that), receive a "secret code" (i.e., membership number) and invitation to an "initiation ceremony". By e-mail. Not a beautifully hand-written parchment then.

Now turn to its [i]Members' Benefits [/i]page: if we believe its promises, we would make a brush look intelligent, but more seriously I started to suspect fraud.

The next tab opens:

Illuminati does not seek any introduction because numerous people across the world are already availing its benefits. The purpose of Illuminati is to make “good individuals become better individuals.”
Join Illuminati freemasons with us and become a better personality as a whole.
We try to emphasize on every individual by strengthening his character, enhancing his moral, broadening his mental horizons as well as his spiritual outlook.[/quote]

Over assorted photos of people in ceremonial bling at formal events - any web-site creator can find such images from the Press, on-line, I expect.

I can't imagine the real Freemasons, nowadays a social and charitable club, being too happy at this exploiting of their name, either.

Payment in Dollars and [i]South African[/i] Rands... And where have we met this kind of thing before?

The [i]Lighthouse[/i] cult, perhaps? Very similar personal-advancement promises. Run by a South African, Paul Warr (sp?) with very ruthless traits, living in style in a big, rented house in the Cotswolds, one of England's priciest areas for houses. He can afford this by draining every bit of money he can from his "clients" for promised professional mentoring that does not happen. (Not to be confused with the Lighthouse charity in New York.) Is Lord Simon, really Lord Paul?

There is more: next tab, Simon's own version of Satanism!

[quote]Do you know what is True Satanism is all about?
It is about Enhancing, uplifting, and empowering humanity for reaching equality concerning our True Creators’ intention, i.e., God’s purpose behind creating human beings.
Lord IVAN is one of the renowned Illuminati agents that helps people in healing their inner self. He is a traditional healer with strong Illuminati powers.[/quote]

"Contact": You'd imagine such a cult exclusive to the high-falutin', but:

[quote] All people, in all places, are eligible to apply for Illuminati membership. Initiates are not required to take any vows of loyalty, and may remove themselves from our membership at any time with no reprecussions [/quote]

(its spelling mistake.) This is above the telephone number of a Lord Mark MaQueen, in South Africa, and a 'gmail' address.

This page just does not ring true with the Home and About pages. Not limited to the rich and supposedly powerful? Would they not want the entirely unrealistic joining rewards, repaying by any leavers?

I think this is a revision of "Lighthouse", broken wide open by a BBC investigative journalist as a naked and very cruel, fraud acting as a cult. (Series title [i]A Very British Cult[/i]). Aspects of cults, matched by Lighthouse, are their coercive and controlling behaviour, breaking family relationships, and cruelty to leavers or apostates. Lighthouse bullied their leavers unmercifully and refused to refund any of their high monetary "investments" that were deliberately never receipted anyway. One, a teacher, found the cult tried telling her employers blatant lies that she was dangerous to children.

So I don't think the real, modern "Illuminati" is anything to laugh about....

I think the backwards-spelling link to the NSA, is by an NSA employee with a sense of humour......!
@ArishMell very interesting thank you.
@ArishMell Ponzi scheme perhaps?

@Ghostinthemachine Maybe - I don't know. Certainly very suspicious.

Took me to the NSA.com
@SilkenHippie exactly…why?
SilkenHippie · 51-55, F
I don't know
I’ve been a card carrying member since the Internet.
The parties are fun!
The hors doerves are to die for, worth the price of membership!
@Ghostinthemachine My kind of person. See you at the next one, I’m the one with the rabbit mask.
@GoingDownToStellieTown I will be dressed as Pagliacci.

I got a weird message asking me to confirm my search engine and I shut it down, didn't like what I saw.
ArishMell · 70-79, M
@SumKindaMunster Interesting... That may be a function of your particular search engine and/or security settings, for reading your message, I tested mine again with [i]itanimulli.com[/i], and it opened without question the home page titled :

[quote]National Security Agency/Central Security Service[/quote]
SumKindaMunster · 51-55, M
@ArishMell Possibly, I use Firefox and have the security settings set high.
Oh somebody’s been creative
SilkenHippie · 51-55, F
I'll do just that
