I is for the Illuminati

Image: vipez


The word illuminati comes from the Latin illuminatur or enlightened and is plural for illuminatus. Back in 1776, the Bavarian Illuminati was a secret sect that opposed superstition, religious influence over public life, and abuses of state power. (Wikipedia)

These days, the word is associate with a powerful group of people who secretly control the world, may or may not indulge in devil worship, and may or may not be lead by Beyonce.  (Although it would be kind of cool if they were led by a black female. Equal Opportunity Conspirators?)

(The triangle, the eye, the pyramid--it's everywhere y'all!)

Anyway, the "proof" of this connection between world power and hip-hop royalty is supposedly evident in the symbols of the devil that show up in music videos like goats, triangles, and the name of Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter. Blue Ivy stands for "born living under evil, Illuminati's very youngest. And if you put the letter backwards, Eulb Yli, you get the name of Lucifer's daughter in Latin! Ooooo, Ahhhh, it all makes sense.



(Okay, I love animals, but this goat scares me. Just saying.)


Except that's bull-poopy. There is no such name in Latin. Lucifer didn't have a daughter, and letters in Blue Ivy could be for "Beyonce loved ultramarine earrings in various years" or "Bebop loot under every idolizing, vainglorius yokel" for all we know.

Do you have a favorite Illuminati member or myth to share?

  1. Beyonce as the head of the Illuminati would be great. Though, I just don't think she has the time to run it!

    I enjoyed The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons and learning lots of interesting bits of information about the Illuminati.

    Have a great day!

    1. I read those as well. Very intriguing.

  2. Good post! I've heard of a group called the Illuminati, and they're supposedly some secret group that exposes political corruption. They actually produce podcasts calling out all kinds of wrong doings. I guess it's the modern day version of the 1776 group.

  3. I heard about this from a friend who was a big John Birch type. I assumed it all came from them.

  4. I believe you've launched a whole new conspiracy theory here today.

  5. I'm so out of touch, I didn't even realize that Beyonce held that office. You'd think a gal who ran the Illumnati would shut down all those cheater rumors about Jay-Z.

    1. Excellent point. And now that she is having twins, the "very youngest" doesn't fit anymore either.

  6. I've heard if you play a country music record backward, you get your ex back.
    I have a lot of black friends who give credence to the Illuminati. Well I know some whites think that too. Money is power. But I think the fates affect us all.
    They may manipulate awhile; but only awhile. It is shocking to me that so many trust fund babies grow up to truly have miserable lives. So money can only do so much. Plus we all meet our maker.

  7. I heard that the deaths of Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston were part of the Illuminati's plans...apparently they were becoming too powerful/famous/rich... something to that effect!

    1. I read that as well for Houston. Craziness.

  8. Hahaha Lucifer's daughter's name in Latin! I read Dan Brown's books - probably most that he's written, and enjoyed them much. And that's all my connection with the Illuminati. Though I have to say if Beyonce is their head, then I should definitely try to cultivate a connection. Brilliant, as usual!

  9. It must be that over the top symbol that does it. I vaguely recall articles about them in women's magazines during my childhood, but I had too many better things to do than pay attention.

    I read The Da Vinci Code too, though I've forgotten it had anything to do with the Illuminati. All I remember is that it took place over 24 hours, during which time nobody ate, slept or went to the bathroom and everyone still seemed to be fresh and able to fight evil at the end of it. Maybe it was the Illuminati who kept them going?

    1. I know, right? I always wonder about letting my characters pee in books. Should I? Most writers skip this part unless it's vital to the plot.

  10. Very clever and *illuminating*. Yes, it's okay if you groan :)

    I know someone who puts stock in the existence and nefarious activities of the Illuminati. Hey, you never know...

  11. Too bad we can't play records backwards anymore and hear secret messages like "John is dead" back when the Beatles were putting out records.

    Beyoncé and The Illuminati? Sounds like a decent back up band.

  12. I'm surprised that so many people believe in this stuff. LOL I heard that magician Criss Angel was a member of the Illuminati as well.

  13. Yes Dan Brown has a lot to answer for in "exposing" this secret society!! Made me laugh to hear the Beyonce conspiracy angle - totally a new one to me :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

  14. Haha! Beyonce is busy. She’s got a family and a mega-career. Now she’s running a secret society. She must be a superhero.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  15. The Bilderberg group and the Masons - who knows? and another one, where I wouldn't be surprised.

  16. *backs away slowly while holding fingers in cross*

    OMG, I am so sick of the Illuminati. This is the middle schoolers' most favorite conspiracy theory, and nothing you can say will dissuade them from buying it lock, stock, and barrel. I've gotten downright rude when someone starts spouting this drivel.

  17. I wish Beyonce and the Illuminati would get around to installing the New World Order and One World Government already so we could be done with Pres. Cheeto... ;-)

  18. The Illuminati rule the world. Period.

    I mean, their signs are everywhere. ;)

  19. For a secret society, the Illumaniti sure aren't good at their jobs. Every conspiracy theorist knows all about their highest ranking members.
    I mean, come on, guys!

I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)

Note: During the A to Z challenge, I may not be able to return all comments in a timely fashion, but I will do my best.
