Friday on History Channel International: Mysteries of the Freemasons
If you're not doing anything this evening, I saw History Channel International is showing Mysteries of the Freemasons again at 7 PM central time. History Channel and History International seem to be obsessed with the topic of Freemasonry. There are a lot of these shows in rotation. I like this one in particular because it focuses so much on the House of the Temple building in Washington D.C.
And History Channel has a new show Brad Meltzer Decoded. I've seen a few of those. One of them is about the missing cornerstone of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. Much of that episode is about Freemasons, and much of their research into the topic of where that stone is was done in the House of the Temple Library. Of course that's probably because George Washington was a Freemason, and he presided as Master over the Freemasons that performed the Masonic ritual over the cornerstone of the Capitol Building when it was laid. Now you have to remember when you watch, that Brad Meltzer is a great fiction writer--he wrote one on the subject of Freemasonry I really enjoyed called The Book of Fate--so you have to take some of it with a grain of salt.
So there's still a lot of interesting programming to satiate the appetites of Freemason enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists alike.
