Masonic Ritual 1: Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Star Wars characters are modern day representations of Egyptian gods? Anakin Skywalker actually Osiris? We should have suspected something masonic afoot when George Lucas started making movies like Raiders of of the Lost Ark, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, with all that business about the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail -- occult mythology deeply related to Freemasonry...

Okay, I ponied up my eight bucks to see Star Wars: Episode 1, and I gotta say, it really wasn't that bad. It was a big special effects / production-design intensive movie, and those are just about always worth watching on that basis alone. The only thing I found really strange about the movie was they obviously spent oodles of money on computer generated aliens and robots, but when the scary dude arrived for the lightsaber battle at the end, his costume consisted simply of red grease paint and little horns glued on his head. I thought, "Who's this guy in Kiss makeup...?"

But it wasn't as bad as the critics said, certainly no worse than the first few movies. Maybe the critics are overromanticizing those earlier movies. After all, they had muppets (Yoda), bigfoot (Chewbacca), and teddy bears (Ewoks) in them. How good could they have been?

On USENET, a few people have been floating the idea that some of the critical flack might be part an organized disinformation campaign to turn people off to the movie because of certain resemblances events in movie have to the current war in Kosovo (read: NATO = The Federation). Yeah, hah, pretty far fetched...

There's actually a much scarier conspiracy angle to the new Star Wars movie. You have to hand it to Daniel Perez over at Global Conspiracy. He's uncovered evidence that George Lucas is a 33rd degree Freemason, and the characters in Star Wars are thinly veiled depictions of Egyptian gods! The Egyptian gods and symbolism are important in the rituals of Scottish Rite Freemasonry. By pointing out the similarities in costume and character, he makes a case that Anakin Skywalker is Osiris, Queen Amidala is Isis, Darth Vader is Seth, and Luke Skywalker is Horus.

These mythological characters are related to constellations, and the release date of The Phantom Menace was specifically engineered so the stars would be in symbolic positions above certain places on Earth, including Lucas's headquarters, Skywalker Ranch. I'm listing only a few of the masonic connections Perez has uncovered. It's a fantastic expose!

There are even connections between vehicles in the Star Wars films to a series of hieroglyphics in the Abydos Temple in Abydos, Egypt, a temple for the worship of Osiris (Skywalker)!

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
