Faith is the belief in something that cannot be proven.

Most religious belief is based upon information received from an outside source that cannot be verified,

 sometimes known as hearsay. Millions will follow the commandments of a religious text without ever

having spoken to its author, and billions will believe in a deity because of miracles they were told of by

someone who wasn’t even present nor alive at the time.

But denouncing faith is true folly. Faith is not limited to religious believers. While even the most devout

pontiff cannot provide irrefutable evidence of his god’s existence, neither can the scientist who claims

that no deity resides in the universe. Both rely upon their own faith to explain things they will never


There is no proof of God. There is no proof of no God, either. If science cannot definitively prove that

there is no God, then science has no choice but to accept a possibility of a god’s existence.

The deepest doubt builds the strongest faith.

The Illuminati’s religious foundation is based upon this universal conundrum of faith and doubt. We do

not question whether a god does or does not exist, but rather focus on the betterment of the human

people living on this planet. Our decisions are made by the study of data and evidence — factors that

can be easily altered by a omniscient creature in order to guide our actions and the future of mankind.

Be wary of those who use our name.

For decades, a multitude of individuals have operated under the name of the Illuminati — their deceit

clouds public perception of our organization, causing many citizens to believe that wrongdoings are

committed by our command.

For anyone to claim that the Illuminati is affiliated with a religious belief — be it God or Satan,

Baphomet or Baal — undermines the very purpose of our independence from human divisions. We

neither accept nor deny any deity and hold none to be higher than any other. We operate solely for the

benefit of the human species we have been entrusted to protect.

Even more heinous rumors have been attributed to our organization, including human sacrifices and

violent rituals. While our individual members are allowed to serve any deity they choose, the Illuminati

 as a whole is only dedicated to the preservation of the human species. Therefore, human sacrifices or

any practice that does not serve the betterment of mankind would counter everything we represent,

and are thus prohibited.

Must a god exist for you to do what is right?

Would an all-intelligent, all-knowing, all-powerful god have any care for the name used in his worship?

Would a god command the harm of another when his justice can be served without your aid? Simply do

what is right and good for the benefit of your species, and whatever higher power exists will reward you

for your stewardship.
