Fake Illuminati Cult

I know everyone has their own opinions on the illuminati, and other shadowy cults and everything. That is all good and fun, but I want to talk about this group.

They are basically the same scam, as scientology, but instead of being based on some sci-fi novel, they play into the conspiracy theory of the illuminati. This group give false offers of money, and power, and then takes advantage of their new members, to scam them and promote this group. They do a good job, mocking them and making people believe they are the real deal. The use memes very well to convey, a sense of being the real, deal.

The illuminati, depending on what you hear, is all about the group gaining power, money, and influence. Many conspiracy theorists have noted seeing real life examples of the illuminati, in pop culture, and in power. This online scam uses a lot of the same symbology that conspiracy theorist points out. They even go as far as to describe what their symbology means. When they go into the meaning of the symbology, they also bring up positive traits of the illuminati that Alex Jones talks about. Here are some of the examples of how this fake cult describes their logo.

The Pyramid: Money is not the root of all evil, money is the route to all freedom. The selfish pursuit of money is a hollow goal, but the pursuit of the goodness that money can create is one of humanity’s greatest responsibilities.

The Eye: Living humans evolve at a rapid pace and continue to advance in ability through study, practice, and self-improvement. The human species is guarded by a coalition of its most elite members called the Illuminati.

The Light: Every human is guided by an inner compass that points toward the Light, revealing truth and direction amidst decisions. All human spiritual beliefs ultimately seek the Light in ways differing only in form and function.

The Eternal: Every human is one part of a larger, eternal design – individual gears in a clock that has no end. Though they may never realize it, a person’s actions have the power to alter the future of the entire world.

The really messed up part is this worked. People fall for this because they play the part so well. They offer false hope, and people buy into it, for the simple reason that they seem real. The only reason they seem so real, is because they know how to meme. Even their writings, if you read it, play the part. This group has gone so far as to offer people millions of dollars, for personal information. Most websites could not pull this off, but they can.
