No, no, and no answer, respectively.

The Illuminati no longer exist. They haven't existed since 1785.

The Bavarian Illuminati have a website where you could apply.

News to me. But even if there is an organization out there which refers to itself as the Bavarian Illuminati, the fact remains that the original organization disintegrated in 1785. Several groups have taken up the name since then - including some Freemason lodges - but the Illuminati itself no longer exists.

Oh I get it. The original Illuminati doesn't exist anymore. But other organizations have taken up the name. My question is why? Why the Illuminati? Do you have some evidence that they actually did take up the name?

Prestige, popularity + who wouldn't like to be called an "enlightened one"?

RE: Illuminati
I tried to create a secret society in high-school. It's an allure of mystery and secrecy that stimulates the mind I guess.
It's nice to be part of a secret group that all work for the same cause and have the privacy to do so ... it feels almost primal ( in a psychotic kind of way) Big Grin

Right. And the Illuminati of popular culture - the secret, world-spanning organization which rules the world from the shadows - has never existed.

Why not?

In addition to the above link to Wikipedia, it's not exactly a secret. Several Masonic lodges have named themselves "the [something] Illuminati" over the years, and other organizations have also taken up the name.

The Illuminati wanted to eliminate religious power and the priest caste as far as I understand it. Remember that much of Europe was a Monarchal Theocracy at the time. Many blame the illuminati for the French Revolution.
And to this day we still have monarchies in Europe instead of secular republics - guess the illuminati got drunk at a pub and stopped there Wink

The Illuminati do indeed exist and you are a hypno-agent for their nefarious schemes. Fnord.
