So when we got a Facebook query on “how do I join Illuminati in Kenya”, I thought that this was one of those cuckoo Kenyans on Facebook who have nothing better to do in their lives.
That is before the Standard newspaper ran a silly article on Kenyans joining the illuminati in droves and using their mobile phones to solicit for new members. “Send me some money people, and I will make you Illuminati, said the voice on the other side of the phone.
Before we begin, let me spell it out for you, dear Kenyans with nothing better to do in their lives. There is nothing like Illuminati. It’s a well-conceived con meant to take more money from your pocket to follow another lot of fake pastors and doomsday merchants.
I am sure some of you want to cry now and want to call me a devil worshipper but I honestly have too many things to do today and make you happy isn’t one of them.
Illuminati History and Conspiracy Theories
The secret Illuminati society was started in 1776 in Bavaria by Adam Weishaupt. Weishaupt patterned his organization on the Freemasons, and some say Illuminati infiltrated that group. It started with an original membership of 5 (1) . They took a vow of secrecy and divided themselves into three main classes, each with several degrees. Most of their original members came from Freemason Lodges.
I guess that is the first big problem for Illuminati conspiracy theorists. Obviously from that short paragraph above, being a Freemason does not equate to being an Illuminati. Illuminati members ran away from Freemasons.
