Many people out there today are convinced that a cabal of Templars, Illuminati and Freemason – plus other groups – control the world behind the scenes. They’re convinced of the existence of transnational brotherhoods or secret societies that pull the strings. But is there any truth at all in this?
For the last three hundred years – especially since the surge of Freemason activity in the 18th century – conspiracy theories around Templar control of the world have grown. With no evidence to back up claims, people nevertheless are sure that the knights continued way past the year 1307 (when they were arrested) and their power has if anything, grown massively.
And who are the Templars today? Well, there are many organisations accused of being fronts for Templar activity. You can guess some I’m sure. I’ve come across people who argue that Pope Francis, as a Jesuit, must be part of a Templar plot because the Jesuits are really secret Templars.
Let me run through some of the recent theories I’ve discovered online about Templars running the world:
TEMPLAR WORLD CONTROL THEORY: Templars control us from Switzerland
- Haven’t you ever noticed how similar the Swiss and Templar flags are?
- Swiss neutrality is not a result of loving peace but because they are too busy orchestrating wars through which the Templars control us
- Templars finance wars around the globe
- The reason Swiss banking is secret is to hide the Templars controlling it
TEMPLAR WORLD CONTROL THEORY: Templars control us from London
- The US is still controlled from London
- Behind the British monarchy and the City of London is the “Crown”, the Crown Templar
- It is still based at the Temple church in the heart of London
- That church is based in London’s legal district where the Templars have determined the Common Law system that governs the UK and US
- King John and Magna Carta cemented this arrangement in place back in 1215
TEMPLAR WORLD CONTROL THEORY: The Holy Grail has given them incredible power
- Digging beneath the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, the Knights Templar found the Holy Grail and knowledge that gave them power over the church
- This power ultimately posed such a grave threat to medieval Europe that kings and popes united to overthrow them
- But they continue to exercise power as they still possess the Grail
- Successive attempts to wrest the Grail from their control by the church and Freemasons have failed
TEMPLAR WORLD CONTROL THEORY: The Freemasons possess Templar knowledge
- Hiram, king of Tyre, built Solomon’s Temple in ancient times but was murdered when he refused to divulge Masonic secrets
- The Templars discovered that knowledge when they occupied Solomon’s Temple
- They transmitted that knowledge to the Freemasons who emerged openly in the 18th century
Templars and the Illuminati – are the same thing
- It’s a simple deductive syllogism that goes like this…
- The Illuminati run the world
- The Templars are the Illuminati
- Therefore, the Templars run the world
Templars are trying to take over all faiths
- The Templars were part of a centuries old conspiracy to dominate the world
- They came from elite aristocratic families
- They deliberately questioned the divinity of Christ to more easily merge Christianity with Islam and Judaism
- Vatican Two in the 1960s was a continuation of that plot
- The Jesuits are an arm of the Templars and Pope Francis is acting under their orders
The Templars are trying to set up a One World Government
- One of the most common conspiracy theories on Twitter today!
So – as you can see – plenty of conspiracy theories about the Knights Templar being secretly in control of the world – but is there any truth in these conjectures?
