    How many of you guys have had the chance to see how Freemasonry is depicted in National Treasure?!?!

    I'll admit, while the theory that Freemasons are direct descendants of the Knights of the Crusades is a a bit weird, it actually puts Freemasonry in a really positive light.

    The study of the history is part of the reason I joined for sure!

    Thoughts?!

    I see most movie as entertainment... Even the one "based" on a true story or event.

    Fun movie. I wouldn't take any of the theories in it as usable. Unless you like the books by Knight and Lomas. LoL

    Yesss! I'm just glad to finally have seen a movie that doesn't portray Masons as devil worshipping murderers lol

    Fiction is fiction regardless of how we're portrayed. If you liked National Treasure, be sure to watch The Man Who Would Be King.

    He wrote “From Hell” and “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,” both of which had us as villains. He’s also written a plethora of other titles.

    I think freemasonry is like religion.
    No origins and no real time line.
    But like religion, we go on Faith and what has been handed down through time .
