    From everything that I have read and heard, the problem lies in both the ignorance and assumption of the members.

    Many men are unknowingly and trustingly indoctrinated into society cultures that assumes that their organization is the only legitimate one. They are mistaken.

    These same men also believe that their practice is the only legitimate practice. Here too they are mistaken.

    Unfortunately, in playing both out, they are sucked so far down the rabbit hole of these two fallacies that they attack anyone who dares contradict with facts. This is a shame since in doing so, they inevitably sabotage the very intent of what the Society tries to Cultivate -- incivility, inconsideration, misunderstanding, and intolerance are but a few things that manifest though their blind devotion to a fabricated idol.

    Fact: Legitimacy is established by a whole bunch of rules that help regulate the franchise nature of specific Freemasonic orders. It is fabricated!

    Fact: Legitimacy is based upon a lot of fallacies that assume the fabricated lore is Factual.

    Fact: A lot of Freemasonic Lore is fun, thought-provoking and intentionally entertaining, but some is not Factual.

    Fact:
    Since every last one of these Freemasonic Societies is a Total-Immersion Live-Action Alternative-Reality Role-Playing Theatrical Society, each makes up their own rules and Acts According to those Rules, all designed to protect the interest of that society. This includes all the dogma put forth to reinforce protective natures.

    Fact: Both Female Craft and Co-masonic Craft as a whole have no collective interest in attending Male Craft Lodges to co-mingle during Male Craft Lodge activities. In other words, they could not care less. (As an aside, I understand that they would like to be respected for what they Practice, but this respect is not necessary since they shall continue to Practice no matter what attitudes, biases and bigotries they may encounter.)

    I can agree with this. I would not set in lodge with women but if a separate organization want to do this more power to them.

    It seems that the GAOTU is male.

    Only in a patriarchal society with the need to anthropomorphize everything.

    Oddly enough species other than human are both male and female.

    But they don't insist the GAOTU is male.

    No, like you, I'm merely making assumptions.

    As far as I can see the GAOTU has 2 faces. The face towards this set of universes is male and to the other set is female.

    Occasionally we get visitors from the other set that appear to us as avatars.

    It's not universally male, as there are cultures that revere the Sacred Feminine. This particular universe just has a lot of patriarchal societies who have forced their "vision" upon the masses.
    I prefer to see it as a duality.

    In the LDS faith (Mormon) we accept there are a Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother.

    In my view God simply is. It's us that have stamped an image on the Supreme Being in order to try and understand it better or, more cynically, to use that image to control people more easily.

    WHAT??!?!?!?!?!?

    James I really hope that you are an ANTI and you just say this stuff to get a rise out of us or in the hopes that other people outside of the fraternaty will see your posts and think that we are all that crazy. Otherwise PLEASE brother go to a PsyD and get examined.

    Just to clarify: the modern term for "set of universes" is multiverse. http://www.space.com/18811-multiple-universes-5-theories.html

    And I was not suggesting that all avatars come from our matching multiverse. There are certainly other sources of beings containing sufficient patterning of the Divine Plan to be called avatars. The Antients used the Beehive as a symbol of one such source.
