The Illuminati has come a very long way since it started in the 1776 Bavaria. Today’s interest of the Illuminati compared to the 18th century aren’t the same. People in the 18th century wanted to join the Illuminati because they wanted to go against the church’s power. Moreover, they wanted to explore science and philosophy. During that time, believing in science over religion was a taboo. If anyone ever found out you believed in science over religion/God, you would be killed or imprisoned. Even though science is a very important aspect of this secret society, today’s interest in the Illuminati is more about materialistic things and fame. Only the rich and famous are said to be in this secret society. These people have power and control over others. Power, money, and control is all the Illuminati is about.
