Mr.NY Light,
It's only an assumption.
That Aliens helped Humanity make The Scientific-Technical Revolution.
And Freemasons were The Providers.

There are forums where theories such as that would be much better received. This is not one of them.

Thanks for the answer, Mr.Goomba!
Probably, yes.
It depends on "the subject"!
Nuclear Engineering, sex,
is different from Law, accountancy and others.
Incompare it to these people fleeing oppresive regimes and sharia law only to demand from the country that took them in that they chamge their laws to be more like the counrty they justt left

Not true. Several of the founding fathers didnt identify with any religion. It was almost as if Masonry was their religion(EVEN THOUGH ITS NOT A RELIGION). I say this as BFranklin and one of the Adams(cant remember which one) and others said on more then on occasion that religion was a downfall of society. Obviously thats not a direct quote but u get the idea

To me, this could very easily indicate organized religious denominations as untrustworthy, and not necessarily a denial of Christ's divinity.

Often a negative experience with the church DOES also bring relation to negative view of the whole religion. But doesnt have to.

Keep in mind, I am no expert on Franklin nor do I try to insinuate any authority on him.

The letter Thomas Jefferson wrote accompanying what's referred to as "The Jefferson Bible" touches upon exactly what you are saying. He basically states that denominations do not represent Christ in the way he understands a christian to be, from reading the New Testament, and as such did not want to be categorized with "Christians".

I just happened to be reading "The Constitutions of the Free-Masons (1734)" and thought of the sidebar in this thread about the Freemasons and American Revolution....

From Charge II: ..."So that if a Brother should be a Rebel against the State, he is not to be countenanc’d in his Rebellion, however he may be pitied as an unhappy Man ; and if convicted of no other Crime, though the loyal Brotherhood must and ought to disown his Rebellion, and give no Umbrage or Ground of political Jealousy to the Government for the time being ; they cannot expel him from the Lodge, and his Relation to it remains indefeasible."

So I get from this that the Brotherhood would condemn the rebellion but still support the Brother. I guess it could be likened to "hate the sin, not the sinner."

It is easy to become obsessed with a billion explanations of our symbols. The craftsman should reflect on his teachings and works. The deeper meanings will occur to you more over time and with practiced reflection.

In the end, we are but a copy made in an image. And our teachings are to practice this image. It is a sacred truth that if you are a copy; then the one true form exists. We are rough longing to be perfect and by the symbolism of the dialogue the allegory teachings are a prophecy to us that the perfect one does exist.

God is at its center
And we are God's followers.
God calls us a priesthood.
We are the priests.
We have chosen a side because we choose light. Light is good. And there is no darkness in God.

The Beginning

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

Darkness doesn't exist

Years ago in the Scottish town of Forres (witches in Macbeth) I was walking at night on a path through the woods where some people had complained of being frightened. The distant street lights were reflected off the low clouds so there was some light on the path.

Ahead was an intersection in the path and there appeared to be some darkness moving around there. So, being somewhat headstrong, I stepped into the dark cloud. Immediately I could no longer see the leaves on the path I was standing on.

The darkness was thick and blocked the light.

So I fixed the entity and there were no more complaints.
