For decades, a multitude of individuals have operated under the name of the Illuminati — some for good, but many more for their own profit. Their deceit clouds public perception of our organization, causing many citizens to believe that wrongdoings are committed by our command.
Be wary of anyone who claims to represent the Illuminati but whose actions go against our core beliefs. These are merely impostors seeking to confuse you.
For anyone to claim that the Illuminati is affiliated with a religious belief — be it God, or Satan, Baphomet or Baal — undermines the very purpose of our independence from human divisions. We neither accept nor deny any deity, and hold none to be higher than any other.
The Illuminati has no association with Satanism or any religion. We operate solely for the benefit of the human species we have been entrusted to protect.
Even more heinous rumors have been attributed to our organization, including human sacrifices and violent rituals. While our individual members are allowed to serve any deity they choose, the Illuminati is only dedicated to the preservation of the human species.
Therefore, human sacrifices go against everything we represent, and are thus prohibited. While many have attributed such actions to our members, these connections are false.
There is no requirement to sell one’s soul to join our organization — as if such a thing were even possible.
If you are willing to sell your soul, your soul is not yet worth enough to sell.
Therefore, choose carefully where you place your belief. Would an all-intelligent, all-knowing, all-powerful god have any care for the name used in its worship? Would a omniscient god command the harm of another when its justice can be served without your aid? Must a god exist for you to do what is right?
You are human for a purpose. Serve goodness, and strive for the benefit of your species, and whatever higher power exists will reward you for your stewardship.
We are always watching out for you.
