I have not read that one. By the same author umm

Shakespeare's plays weren't written by him, but by someone else of the same name.

I knew this guy who, every time the topic of Shakespeare came up, would roll his eyes and derisively say "I'm a Baconist." Then, one day, an actor asked him why and he just stuttered and stammered for a minute. Turns out he'd never read any arguments for or against, he just heard somewhere that there was this theory and decided to go with it in an effort to try and sound superior to others. Like he knew something they didn't. He didn't even really know who Bacon was.

Bacon did not write Shakespeare, actually Shakespeare ate Bacon.

Shakespeare was not wealthy in his time, a playwrite was a lower level profession. He could probably not afford to eat Bacon.

Both are fun if you do it right!

The Vatican's finances have been crooked for years. It is also an organisation that hides and protects thieves and paedophiles, and that uses bullying and intimidation to further its aims. It openly defies the authority of the state in countries where it is sufficiently organised. The comparison with the Mafia is apt.


Wow you sure know a lot for a clown.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

Wasn't bacon (like most of the best stuff) originally a peasant food? I might be remembering that one wrong, for some reason I was just thinking it was.

Hi Bob,

P2 was what is known as a "clandestine" Lodge, i.e. outside of the framework of "regular" Freemasonry. Of course the present Pope, when he was a Cardinal and the Director of what remains of the Inqusition, wrote a lengthy and detailed opinion explaining that being a Freemason is a mortal sin for communicants of the Church. But at the same time, there are many Catholic Freemasons, indeed whole Lodges of them. If memory serves, one of the earliest Masonic Lodges in Savannah had as its entire membership Catholic priests who were, I think, refugees from Haiti.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I, myself, was a Freemason and a Catholic at the same time. Whether or not a lodge is clandestine depends on who you ask.

From the point of view of the Lodge, there is no problem with a Catholic Mason per se.

If it is true that the Charter of "Propaganda Due" was revoked by the Grand Orient of Italy in 1976, the Lodge would be considered thereafter clandestine by most, I think.

I joined a masonic-type fraternal order once. Imagine my dissapoint when, rather than evil masterminds bent on world domination, I found myself surrounded by old dudes eating spaghetti. Seriously, I have never seen so many spaghetti feeds in my life. Flippin' weird.

Well if you were in the Mafia not so many years ago you would have also found yourself surrounded by old dudes eating spaghetti.


And, yes, Woland, from the perspective of the Grand Lodge they would, of course, be considered clandestine. But if you were to ask them, they probably wouldn't see it that way.

That is a fact.

On a related note- the Mob Museum in Vegas is awesome.
