Apophenia.Nice picture. Not Freemasonry. Pretending that the Craft is any older than the late Middle Ages/Early Renaissance at the very earliest is wishful thinking at the best and cannot be supported no matter how much you want it to be true. The fact that our Order has adopted symbols used by earlier cultures and religions in no way implies or proves an origin in/of/or contemporary to those groups. Are you asserting that Freemasonry existed in prehistory as a divinely ordained mystical group that gave a common set of symbols to developing civilizations? You have to realize how ridiculous that theory is to legitimate Masonic scholars and historians.
