You're aware of the DNA evidence in 2008, correct?
As far as Freemasons, I don't know much about it. My father was involved in the Masons; I studied it a little, it just seemed to be one more social group made of "upstanding community men" who were just as human as everyone else, and I did not see what the hype was. They were just as coarse and self-centered as any other group of human beings I had come to know.
There is a lot of mystical stuff involved in its origins, along with symbols on the American dollar, the Illuminati stuff, etc. I doubt many of the people involved on the basic level know or care about all that stuff; they just go there to be part of a community group, like some people go to church.
A lot of the abuse links seemed to refer to events over in the UK. The group might have different influence there.
