Was Louis Pasteur a Freemason?

Louis Pasteur was most likely never a Freemason. He is not listed in William R. Denslow's definitive book, 10,000 Famous Freemasons, or by any other reputable source. Understand that, in most cases, it is virtually impossible to prove a negative, therefore one cannot say with absolute certainty that Pasteur was NOT a Freemason, but there is no evidence to indicate that he was.

Masonry, like most groups, is very proud of its famous members and usually points them out, so if evidence existed, Pasteur would be claimed as a member by the Fraternity. When only anti-masons are the ones claiming someone was a Mason, it is very unlikely that the person really was. Despite what some say, Freemasonry simply isn't a "secret society" and there are generally plenty of membership records to be found.

Was h g wells a freemason?

Herbert George "H.G." Wells was most likely never a Freemason. He is not listed in William R. Denslow's definitive work, 10,000 Famous Freemasons, or by any other reputable source. Understand that, in most cases, it is virtually impossible to prove a negative, therefore one cannot say with absolute certainty that Wells was NOT a Freemason, but there is no evidence to indicate that he was, and a bit to indicate that he was not.

Masonry, like most groups, is very proud of its famous members and usually points them out, so if evidence existed, H.G. Wells would be claimed as a member by the Fraternity. When only anti-masons are the ones claiming someone was a Mason, it is very unlikely that the person really was.

2012 Presidential Campaign

What 2012 presidential candidates are Freemasons?

I have not heard any confirmation that any of them are Freemasons, it is too bad. Great men like George Washington, James Monroe, FDR, Harry Truman and Teddy Roosevelt all were Freemasons and changed this country for the better. We could use someone of either party that learned the lessons of liberty and toleration taught by Masonic groups.

Why do freemasons have so much power?

The power of any group is largely based on the collective power of its members. The membership of the Masonic fraternity is very large, and many of them have been influential men.

In reality, however, Freemasons have no more power than do Baptists, Democrats, or any other large group of people. Although many prominent and "powerful" men have been Freemasons, their membership in that fraternity really had no more influence on their gaining that position than did their religion or political affiliation, and perhaps, even less.

It should also be noted that most regular Masonic jurisdictions have rules which prohibit power brokering and/or giving members special advantage outside of the lodge. Freemasons are also not bound to obey their leaders outside of Masonic matters, particularly in regard to politics.

All in all, the influence and supposed "power" of the fraternity is much more myth than fact.

Is Jesse ventura a freemason?

There is no way to know if a person is a Freemason unless they present a dues card.

--

As of this writing, Jesse Ventura is most likely not a Freemason. Understand that, in most cases, it is virtually impossible to prove a negative, therefore one cannot say with absolute certainty that he is NOT a Freemason, but there is no reputable evidence to indicate that he is, despite the claims of some "conspiracy" websites.

The Freemasons, like most groups, are very proud of their famous members and usually point them out publicly. If former Governor Ventura was a Mason, it is to be expected that he would be publicly claimed as a member by his lodge and by the Fraternity. When the only claims of membership come from anti-masons it is very unlikely that the person really is one. Despite what some say, Freemasonry simply isn't a "secret society" and there are generally plenty of records to be found.

Why is Freemasonry evil?

They aren't. Many people believe them to be evil simply because the church said so a while ago, and nobody has bothered to correct their error.

--

Freemasonry is not evil, unless you define "evil" in a somewhat odd manner. The tenants of Freemasonry are Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth, and its basic principles are Faith, Hope and Charity. It teaches morality and seeks to "make good men better." Unfortunately, because Freemasonry has kept its rituals and tokens of recognition secret (or tired to) some people have taken exception to the fraternity and made assumptions about what they "are really up to."

Sadly, some people fear what they do not understand, and may seek a scapegoat for their fears. All too often this has resulted in unjustly condemning whole races of people, as well as various religions or organizations. Because of this, many false stories have been told about Freemasonry. Many of them are still based on a great hoax perpetrated in the late 1900's by a man who called himself Leo Taxil. He publicly confessed to the lies, but they persist to this day. As Rev. Charles Spurgeon said in 1855, "A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on."
