Sinclair had a shipping company that shipped good to Nova Scotia. Therefore, he had foreknowledge of America.

You would have to be a pretty active time traveler! The Knights Templar were disbanded in the early fourteen century and the Freemasons didn't really get started until the 19th century. Plus, of course, the Knights Templar were strict Catholics, and the Freemasons are basically their own religion, although they allow their members to attend other Churches as well, claiming that they all worship the same Deity. Membership in the Freemasons has been condemned by every Pope for a couple hundred years.

What was important about the Knights Templar?

Both the Knights Templar and the Hospitallers were Orders of monks. The Templar Order was accepted into the Church of Rome by Pope in 1129, when their first Rule was compiled to regulate their dress, equipment and religious services. This put them on exactly the same level as other Orders of monks: the Cluniacs, Benedictines and Cistercians - with one major difference:Their task was primarily to protect Christian pilgrims travelling to Jerusalem, so they became a military religious Order consisting of knights, non-noble serjantz and servants who worked as labourers, craftsmen, cooks, grooms and so on. All of them were also (first and foremost) monks, and the Templars also included priests to conduct daily services, hear confessions and give absolution to those killed in battle. Death on the battlefield as a member of the Order was considered Christian martyrdom, meaning that a Templar would expect to go straight to Heaven.The Order of Knights Templar was abolished by Pope Clement IV in 1312, just 183 years after its acceptance by an earlier Pope. People who today pretend that the Order can be re-established conveniently forget the main part of the Templar function: as monks within the Catholic Church, regulated by a Pope and having religious conviction as their primary function.MoreThe function of the Knights Templar, to protect pilgrims, was extended to protect the property of the pilgrims, both on the road and at home. Money and other valuables were often deposited with the Knights Templar for safekeeping. In many cases, money was deposited for transportation, and this eventually turned into a system under which money could be deposited in one place and withdrawn in another. Naturally, the Knights Templar provided a prototype for the early banks.The collapse of the Templars created a need for others to provide the same service. This need was met by merchant families, whose members traveled under guard, and who could manage property for clients. This gave rise to the system of banking that appeared in the Late Middle Ages.There is a link below to an article on the Knights Templar, to the section describing their economic importance relative to banking.

Why is Friday the 13 a bad day?

It's not. Some people are superstitious about it because at the Last Supper (where Jesus met with his disciples the last time before his crucifixion) there were 13 people seated (Jesus and 12 apostles) and his crucifixion was on the day after - a Friday. However, practising Christians are not (or should not!) be superstitious because of their relationship with God through Jesus. Another theory about the origin of the superstition traces the event to the arrest of the legendary Knights Templar. The Knights Templar were a monastic military order founded in Jerusalem in 1118 C.E. Their original mission was to guide and protect Christian pilgrims along the path from Europe to Jerusalem during the Crusades. Through this mission, the Templars developed a banking system to protect the finances of the traveling pilgrims, then expanded this system throughout their holdings in Europe. Over time, France's King Philip IV amassed a debt to the Knights Templar for years of service. He had nearly depleted his money due to his War with the English. King Phillip became envious of the Knights Templar and their rise to power, so he set his sights on their famed fortunes. Philip devised a plan to arrest all the Knights Templar and charge them with crimes so devastating that no person or group would come to their defense. The charges against them were religious in nature and backed by the Vatican and Pope Clement V. His plan had to be swift and carefully put together so as to not alert the Templars in advance. King Phillip's orders were sent a month in advance to the King's Men and other Bailiffs. They were not to be opened till dawn on Friday, October 13, 1307. The charges against the Templars were of the highest accusations of heresy: that the Knights Templar asked members to spit on the cross and step on it, to deny Christ, to perform homosexual acts, and so on. The king's orders where to engage and arrest every Templar in France. All Templar outposts, homes, wineries, mills, and castles were to be taken in the name of the King of France and Pope Clement V. This nationwide arrest was widely successful, and medieval torture tactics were used to obtain confessions from the Knights. This single act against the Templar Order is now viewed as one of the most unlucky days in History - Friday the 13th.

List 10 things about knights templar?

# For one they became a group in 1118. # Their main objective was to protect the Holy Lands and everything Holy. # The biscuit comes from Templar history, they would make large flat bread to take on trips. # Friday the 13th was when the Templar group was accused for worshipping the devil and burned at the stake. # Hugo de Payens and Godfrey de St. Omar persuaded the King of Jerusulam for their group to establish themselves and their companions in the Royal Palace.

Knights would wear a Bronze Ring. # The Knights Templars are reputed to be the founders of some of the first banks, Bankers of the Levant (encompassing theHoly Land). # After his arrest on 10th October 1307, Jacques de Molay 'confessed' to many things in order to avoid the torture chamber. The trials and the 'confessions' had been proclaimed and public opinion was firmly against the Templars. The only concession the Pope was able to extract from Philip (King of France) was that all Templar holdings be returned to the Church# After the death of Jesus it is interesting to note that Mary Magdalene went to Europe and formed her own church, not based on Christianity, but the old religion of Egypt 'Isis/Osiris', believed to be the same beliefs of the Magi. Was Mary Magdalene a high priestess of the Magi? She was accompanied by disciples of the faith known as 'keepers of the faith' (Knights Templars) to guard her, it is this Order of the Knights Templar that took the true faith from the Magi of Egypt, the same faith that Jesus practiced # Their main goals are to promote:Fraternity, Friendship, Spirituality, Meditation,Charity and Chivalry.

Where the knights templar bad people?

No, they were not. Their portrayal in "Kingdom of Heaven" was highly inaccurate. For example: Renauld De Chatillion was NOT a Templar. Guy De Lusignan was not a Templar. The Knights, Chaplains and Sergeants were monks. They spent their days training for war, maintaining their equipment and praying. They lived in Cloisters and were subject to hundreds of rules. One of which was they could only hunt lions. And they had to sleep fully clothed. Also, they could not embrace women, including their family members. They were prohibited from idle talk. The rules were strictly enforced. There are records indicating that knights were made to eat off the floor like dogs for minor rule violations. So, in short, they were very dedicated people who surrendered their lives in service to God. Their goal was to protect the Christians who were under constant attack from Muslims and pagans.
