The Masonic Influence on World History

As time passes more and more is being discovered concerning the ancient craft of Masonry.

The ancients based much of their knowledge and beliefs on astronomy, in particular, Orion, the star Sirius, and the planet Venus.

Even the giant pyramid of Cheops, located on the Egyptian plain, high above Cairo, was constructed in the very same pattern as the three stars in Orion’s belt and certain air chambers in the pyramid point to Venus as it would have been positioned in the sky in earlier times.

The Egyptian hieroglyph for the morning star was the same five-pointed star used to represent the five points of Masonic fellowship in the third degree.
