Top 10 Things You Should Know About the Illuminati

  1. People Believe in the Illuminati Because There Is No Proof That It Does Not Exist

It's hard to prove a negative. Like proving the Flying Spaghetti Monster isn't Jesus Christ's real father.

While there is historical evidence for the Bavarian Illuminati, there is not any tangible proof for the existence of a modern Illuminati. As a result, believers that are told that it cannot be proven can counter with the argument that it cannot be disproven either.

If there were recognized and tangible proof of the existence and actions of this secret society, it would not continue to operate in society as such a popular myth.  Reminds me of how you can’t prove the the Flying Spaghetti Monster isn’t real.

1.Real or Not, The Illuminati Have Become Huge Influences in Modern Western Culture

The Illuminati love their crazy symbols. And if you like money, so do you!

If you are looking for signs of the Illuminati, then you do not have to look far. From rap music to the U.S. dollar, signs that are associated with the modern Illuminati are found everywhere you look.

Rapper Jay-Z and singer Beyonce are suggested to be heavily entrenched in this secret society because they use pyramid and diamond symbols in their businesses and performances. There have been photos and music videos that show both performers integrating symbols of the Illuminati into their art.

Even Lady Gaga has got in on the action. Some of her videos include the use of diamonds and goats’ heads, which are said to be symbols of the modern illuminati.

From The Da Vinci Code to Nicholas Cage, Hollywood has continued to capitalize on what some people claim is a living legend. These representations stray far from the Enlightenment ideas and instead represent the much more violent and terrifying representation of the modern incarnation of the Illuminati.

Even the beloved Statue of Liberty, a gift from France, has not gone unscathed. Some researchers say that the statue is a symbol of the Illuminati that represents the transition from the Old World Order to the New World Order.

However, using these signs in works of art does not imply that the artists are members of the Illuminati. Instead, it demonstrates that they are adapting signs and symbols of both history and popular culture in order to create a statement through their art.


The Illuminati have a long history in the Western world. From its 18th century Enlightenment origins to the blockbuster Hollywood movies, the myth of the Illuminati is so well-recognized that it has become completely distorted.

The myth of the modern Illuminati has little if anything to do with the actual group of Illuminati thinkers that existed in history. If anything, the alleged group of powerful people that control the world today stole the name and little else.

The Illuminati of Bavaria was united in its attempts to give people back their agency and to remove the shackles imposed on them by the both the monarchies and the Pope. They worked to change Europe and establish a middle class in society. However, as a historical group they continue to disappear in history. It seems their progressive ideas are not worthy of the infamy of a mythical group of people that are suggested to be bent on destroying everything that the original Enlightenment Illuminati worked to build.
