Tuesday’s Quotes February 6, 2018 – Illumination

“This is the great object held out by this association; and the means of attaining it is illumination, enlightening the understanding by the sun of reason which will dispell the clouds of superstition and of prejudice.”   — Adam Weishaupt

On this day in 1748, Adam Weishaupt, German enlightenment era philosopher and founder of the wildly misunderstood Bavarian Illuminati was born in Ingolstadt, Germany.

Happy Birthday, Adam.  Like all of the thinkers of the enlightenment you helped bring humanity out of the Dark Ages. And gave conspiracy theorists a wonderful trail to follow for over 200 years, however unintentionally.
