Dan Brown’s “The Lost Symbol,” Book Review
I have taken some time tonight to pass on my review of Dan Brown’s book, “The Lost Symbol.” As many know it is about the influence of the Freemasons, whom many of our founding fathers were members of, had on the foundation viewpoints of the creation of this country. The ideas of “All men are created equal, pursuit of happiness, religious freedoms, etc.” are all viewpoints of Freemasons and were the bases of what this nation was founded on.
1. No matter at what station or stratification of birth one person had, all are viewed as equal within the Freemasons.
2. Every man has the right to pursue the truth of what is within ones own soul and the evidence obtained from science facts. (The Age of Enlightenment…i.e. Illuminati)
3. No matter if you are of the Jewish faith, Muslim faith, Christian faith, all are well accepted into the Freemasons.
So “NO,” this country was not founded as a Christian Nation as many of the ignorant claim today!
I have enjoyed many of the books Dan Brown has written and as I too am a Freemason, I took great interest in this book.
As many whom have been familiar with my writings in this blog and contributing to others, I have made it very well known how I have spent my life straining to be heard above the din of ignorance.
Below is an excerpt from the book, “The Lost Symbol,” that I found profound, speaking for my thoughts, and saw value in passing it on.
Page 327, 3rd. chapter from the top.
“From the Crusades, to the Inquisition, to American politics, the name Jesus had been hijacked as an ally in all kinds of power struggles. Since the beginning of time, the ignorant had always screamed the loudest, herding the unsuspecting masses and forcing them to do their bidding. They defend their worldly desires by citing Scripture they did not understand. They celebrated their intolerance as proof of their convictions. Now, after all these years, mankind had finally managed to utterly erode everything that had once been so beautiful about Jesus.”
This passage taken from the book sums up current events so true today.
So in conclusion, I highly recommend reading this book, I found it enlightening, educational but keeping in mind it is still fiction so don’t take everything as verbatim of everything that is within the Freemasons. A good easy read and will make a very good movie in the future.
