Introduction
 
I thought it would be humorous to post my intro in this forum.

The name is KSigMason (KSig for short). The name comes from the two organizations I belong to: Kappa Sigma (college fraternity) and the Freemasons. In the Kappa Sigma fraternity, I was the Treasurer, but am now inactive. In the Masons, I am the current Senior Warden (#2) and will hopefully be elected to the position of the Worshipful Master. I am also a part of the Lodge of Research for Idaho. In a year or two I plan on jumping into the line-up of the Grand Lodge. I am also petitioning for the York Rite body of the Masons and will later join the Scottish Rite.

Personally, I work full-time for the Army Guard. I LOVE HISTORY! Especially from the Middle Ages back - it's so freaking fascinating.

I know you are all going to have fun with me. I work a lot so I'll be on at night, but not all the time...I'm very busy.

I am only in the Blue Lodge (highest degree being the 3rd - Master Mason).

Worshipful: from the old English meaning 'Respectful'. Chiefly British. Used as a respectful form of address

they do have 'kooky' titles justgroovy, I find it very odd that masons can work there way "up the pyramid" so to speak,(no pun intended) and be unaware of what exactly it is there accomplishing.

Are all the books labeling Masonry as evil incorrect? What exactly do you strive for in Freemasonry? The 33rd degree or what?

Those kinds of books are incorrect.

I strive to be a better person and gain knowledge.

I am striving for the 33rd degree, but it's not a requirement for everyone to go for.

I am actually looking forward to the higher degrees and have done much research on it. The Worshipful Master is basically the President. That's it.

Actually the ritual/ceremony points it all out what you are doing. Plus there is a lot of studying before preceeding to the higher degrees.

look KsigMason, alot of things mean differently to people, most 'conspiracy' minded people will say that masonry has alot to do with the NWO that is enveloping the world right now. Im not sure that your aware of the history of masonry, as far as conspiracies are concerned, sure, your books will say differently, but, the preponderence of documentation says that masonry is evil, I'm not here to convince you of that, that is up for you to decide, personally, I believe there is good charitable works in various communities that masons do, this I have witnessed myself, only problem I got with masonry is its Anti-Jesus teachings, but, that is just my opinion. By the way, how long does it take to reach the 33rd degree? There is some creepiness about the rituals don't you think?

UPDATE: I just finished the last requirement to get my full Master's ticket. This certificate enables me to be elected as Worshipful Master and also to Grand Lodge offices.

Who says we are unaware?

I've read a lot about it.

That has lack of evidence. It's a mixture from lies spread and fear of what they don't know.

What anti-Jesus teachings? I've never seen that in any of the rituals. Also, the York Rite has a requirement that the candidate be a Christian.

It depends on the local chapter and the candidate. They usually can reach 32nd pretty quickly, but you can't just reach the 33rd on your own, you must be invited by the Council.
