The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

To me, the television series, “The Curse On Oak Island” that airs on the History channel has been a fascinating series.

I first heard of Oak Island in the 1950s when I read about it in a magazine my grandfather had.  Obviously, that was many years ago, and I had all but forgotten about it until I saw the program on the history channel a few years ago. 

My interest peaked, as I had been studying much about the Knights Templars and other groups who may have possibly come to the Western Hemisphere .

The link to the Knights Templars is fascinating, without a doubt, the group discovered something when they first visited the temple in Jerusalem, they discovered something, or some knowledge, as they suddenly became extremely wealthy. 

It was this wealth and notoriety that eventually lead to their downfall when the king of France and the pope had them killed in the fourteenth century. 

It only makes sense that some would have escaped and fled to Scotland where the political climate would have been better for them. 

Whether on not they went to the new world is open for debate, but there is much evidence that says they did. 

I’ll keep watching, I think this season will determine what and if anything is discovered in the money pit. 


Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures.
