Freemasonry is perhaps the most famous secretive society which has been wrapped in a mysterious aura for centuries. To many, Freemasons are the only members of a secretive group which holds its meetings in secrecy. Nothing can be farther from the truth, as secret societies have existed since the dawn of history and are as old as mankind itself. Secret societies have been instrumental in several events in human history and due to the cloak…

Freemasons use many terms and symbols, and if one is reading about Freemasonry he will certainly come across the term “Masonic Lodge”. But what is a Masonic lodge? This term refers to the place where Freemasons meet, but also to the members of Freemasonry who meet in that place, and between Masonic lodges all around the world, there is a relationship based on recognition and fraternity. The term Masonic Lodge refers to the place where Masons…

Despite the numerous conspiracy theories (myths) about the danger posed by Freemasons to society, history is full of often overlooked major and minor contributions of Freemasons to mankind. Over the course of centuries, the Masonic Brotherhood has included millions of members who’ve gone to serve various causes in their country/nation. Free-masonic contributions to architecture are well known as the buildings designed or build by masons include some of the most well-known landmarks in the world.…

Freemasons have been the subject of many conspiracy theories and are considered one of the most secretive organizations in the world. Although, Freemasons themselves refute all these charges and say that their activities, insignia, Masonic lodges, and all other symbols are open to public scrutinization and as such they can no longer be considered a secret society as no organization which claims to be a secretive one will open itself to outside inspection. But, are…

Freemasonry in its modern form has existed since the 18th century, although the origins of this mysterious organization are shrouded in secrecy and much has been speculated about the origins of Freemasonry. In this article, we’ll discuss this in detail the origins of Freemasonry by throwing light on several well-known and little-known facts. See: Masonic Conspiracy Busted With The Truth History of Freemasonry since the establishment of several lodges in England and continental Europe is…

The Ark of the Covenant has been a mysterious and prized item which has found mention in Old Testament and has acquired different meaning over last few millennia. The Ark of the Covenant is one of the few items which has found a mention in the Hebrew Bible and it’s even more special because everything about it has been mentioned in vivid detail. So, in this article, we will discuss The Ark of The Covenant…

Anyone who has studied the history of Freemasonry has surely come across a man by the name of Hiram Abiff – who was Hiram Abiff? Hiram Abiff is regarded by many as the “first Freemason” (not actually called that at that time) in the history who initially inspired the secret organization which we today know as Freemasonry. Freemasons and others claim that Hiram Abiff was the chief architect or mason who was employed by King…

This post will be quick, but we want to document the progress we have made with you all since you were all a part of this journey we have going on here. The Beginnings… The first launch of the MasonicFind website looked like this: The idea came when one Brother (we’re three now running…

How do I become a Freemason? This is a question we get asked often on our website and on our social media pages so we’ve finally decided to write a simple guide about this and detail the step-by-step process of how to join the Freemasons – a Craft dating back hundreds of years where Kings and Presidents were also proud members. I’m also happy to see that so many people from all over the world…

Freemasonry, sadly enough, is seen as an “old person’s game”. Youngsters are said to be turning their back on Freemasonry because it’s seen as something their grandpa and retired uncle would do. This is far from the truth. Freemasonry is alive and well and boasts a growing number of youngsters. The problem facing Freemasonry is that Masonic Lodges, are failing in getting themselves set up online and ready to attract new youngster (who tend to…

Freemasonry is a complicated matter for some people. The general population mostly comes to know of Freemasonry mostly through media, which, can be skewed in many different ways, to say the least. From high ranking, masonic US presidents, to murderous conspiracy theories (not to mention the many hundreds of years of history) has left its toll and people are turning to Google (as with most things) for answers to their questions about Freemasonry. This website…

Freemasonry is a social order which accepts members from all tribes, religions, creeds and social status. The teachings are basically founded on the principles of truth and love for each other, which backs the rule that you should treat others as you would like them to treat you. Most people believe that most US presidents were Freemasons. However; only 15 of them were actual freemasons. George Washington George Washington was president from 1789 to 1797. At 20 years in…

Brethren, today we’re going to be discussing a very controversial topic that I know many people have strong views against/for. Today we are discussing; homosexuality in Freemasonry. You are welcome (and encouraged) to add your views (for or against) but please; let’s keep it civil. The number of openly homosexual people is growing. This is not because more people are homosexual today than before, but because, even though homosexuals are still not widely accepted, homosexuality is…

For some odd reason, Freemasonry is always associates with (shady) looking old men that just ooze the aura they have all the money and power in the world. This is a very wrong assumption of Freemasonry. From my experiences in the Craft and from being a Master Mason for nearly 10 years now, I have to say that the general perception of the “powerful Freemason” is completely not true. While yes, some Freemasons may also…

Not too long ago, I was browsing around on the MasonicFind Twitter page and I came across a rather odd question that took me by surprise – and to be honest; also gave me a bit of a chuckle. The question was; Are the Freemasons still active? Yes, Freemasons are still around and active with 5,000,000 members deep worldwide. At the time of writing, there are approximate: 500,000 Freemasons in the UK and Over 2,000,000…

Perhaps no other organization or fraternity has been subjected to conspiracy theories and myths as is the case with Freemasonry. Anti-Masonry activists have been instrumental in waging a centuries-old war against Freemasonry and have used every trick and tool available in the arsenal of a propagandist for this purpose. Myths can seize human imagination and no one understands this better than Anti-Masonry activists. We as humans have a natural fear of anything which we don’t…

What are the benefits of being a Freemason? Today’s post is directed towards those that have yet to join Masonry and are wondering what the benefits of becoming a member are. If you are thinking of joining this Craft and you’re wondering what you will get out of your membership, then this is for you. I’ve compiled a small list to detail just some of the benefits of being a Freemason. This will hopefully help…

Brethren and fellows alike we are in a very important time for Freemasonry. Our craft needs us now more than ever, as our lodges and members age. It is imperative that we as modern masons do something to create that spark that once made our craft so appealing to the men of our respective countries. On the left here, you will see a graphic of the different degrees and symbols that make up the lifelong…

Conspiracy theorists and anti-masons have often put forward theories that notable historical figures have been associated with Freemasonry for centuries. The thrust of this argument has helped create a perception that Freemasons are on some sort of a mission to control the world. A brief look at the history of Freemasons and Freemasonry is more than enough to convince one about the positive contributions of Freemasons to Human Civilization. Masons have included Kings, Presidents, Politicians,…

Greetings brethren. Today we have a special piece for you that I am sure you’re going to enjoy reading. We’ve tracked down a female Freemason in the UK and she was kind enough to answer your questions (if you’re on my email list, you would’ve had the chance to suggest some questions too). One of our most popular blog posts is “Women In Freemasonry: Co-Masonry & More” and yes, it is a very controversial subject.…

Making good men better is to extract the essence of the Masonic experience. The ritual and ceremony serve to convey and teach certain moral lessons and elevate the individuals to a position higher than themselves. The lessons are things you have likely already heard or have learned in a moral society. What makes them unique to Freemasonry is that they are presented in a specific format and context. We have come to realize, during the…

Many people wonder: what is the All Seeing Eye, where does it come from and WHY is it such a fundamental widely-recognized symbol of Freemasonry? The symbol of the All Seeing Eye was “created” many years ago (since the Egyptian times at the very least), and it is still a common sight today with many Masonic conspiracy theories around it. Pop culture is fascinated by it as well, with the symbol used in many movies and…

Freemasonry is definitely one of the oldest existing organisations in the world and it’s organised ritual have been around since pre-Medieval times. But how did Freemasonry survive so long? And who are the “modern freemasons” keeping it alive? Rather than how it survived, we should ask why it has survived. In fact, Freemasonry has not only survived, but it has kept on growing steadily, and with more than 6 million members worldwide, it is still…

Many times since I became a member of this grand fraternity, I have in retrospective moments, asked myself, why I am proud to be a Mason and I dwell upon those things that Masonry has brought before me. The feelings of warmth, friendship, and potential comfort in times of distress are always with me, yet they seem to appear most readily in Lodge. I think that Masonry is many things to many people, and we…

It is no easy task to find an answer to the question: What is Freemasonry? This Fraternal organisation has existed for many, many years, and is still operative today with Lodges in most countries of the world and more than 6 million Freemasons all over the world. Basically, Freemasonry is an organisation which arose a long time ago that was originally a “meeting group” where medieval masons, (or stone workers), shared their secrets for working…

We owe our being to those who came before us. We are here because they were here, and of the way, their lives unfolded. Imagine, if you will, the countless chance happenings, the many coincidences and accidents, all of which had to come about in the precise way they did, in order to result in our being here, and, being what we are! Each of us attends our Lodge meetings because we want to. We…

Without any exaggeration, we can put this on our Masonic honour and tell you that we get at least two people a day asking us whether you can join the freemasons online. This site is dedicated to answering any questions both masons, and non-masons may have about the Craft but if there is a question we wouldn’t like to answer again, it’s that one. Can you join the Freemasons online? Absolutely not. If you do…

So a few weeks ago we published a highly controversial blog post that discussed homosexuality in Freemasonry. We received a ton of comments and we even took a poll on it which you can see the results for yourself here. Today we’re going to be discussing another very controversial topic and that is the role of women in Freemasonry. Please read this article with an open mind and feel free to add any comments (whatever…

Although Freemasonry originated in the West, with the spread of European empires Freemasonry also spread globally in the 17th and 18th centuries. By the end of the 18th century, Freemasons can be found from America to India and from Egypt to Russia. Indeed, Freemasons can be considered as having established a truly global network by the end of 18th century. Unlike many other organizations claiming to be working towards a universal brotherhood of mankind, Freemasonry…
