Do you really think that most of the men who built cathedrals became masons and templars?
masons, yes. If they weren't a mason going into the job, they became one after they developed their skills.
The master mason was the highest position on the site and was only offered to a worker with years of building experience. It was the master mason’s job to oversee the whole build, recruiting workers as necessary, keeping an eye on costs and obtaining all the building materials needed. Any mason who wished to take part in building the medieval cathedrals would be tested by the master mason himself.
The Templars did have a distinct advantage however. Being an international organization, it was able to draw on the building practices of the many different nation states that supplied its personnel. The Templars were able to use the very best techniques previously employed by English, French, German and Italian castle builders, supplemented by what they very quickly learned from both adversaries and friends in the Levant..
Back, before the Roman Empire, the only real, surviving belief
seemed to be that of the Jewish Faith.
This is where, in the time of the Roman Empire,
that apparently Christianity, based on Jesus, comes from.
Prior to then, except for the Jewish, the people of the world,
went around - conquering one another, exchanging their gods together.
Somewhere, in the Roman Empire time, it was devised to bring about
a belief - that would be "up there" - with the one the Jewish people had.
Pretty-sure, it was man-made, from that time.
Prior to then, except for the Jewish people, beliefs were exchange-able.
The Jewish people were a factor to be reckoned with back then.
The religions of the world are like the countries of the world.
They stack up to one another however they do.
The above, may not be, infallible, depends when other faiths became.(?)
That's the way I notice it from history, anyway.
Whatever religions, appear to want to "instill" themselves in you.
These are fashioned after the Jewish Faith in doing so.
Was because the Jews didn't relinquish their beliefs, and "others" aspired.
The concept that I follow, is one based on - ones' self.
Have taken this back throughout "time immemorial".
Have not - come up with a "god".
Have come up with - anyone - self-exists - in themselves.
This concept - these days - is well shot.
We are being "whittled" away at, from without.
Our conscious selves, is what we have been, whittled down to.
Everything else in addition to our "conscious" selves - is being used
against us, from within, undermining us, as we be.
Whatever there is to us, that is in addition to our "conscious" selves,
is in "foreign" control - all over us - from above and beyond us - as we be.
It's so bad, they have us covered, every ping of the way.
We, ourselves, do not have anything with one another.
What we have is - common denominators - in each one of us - to we be.
Currently - our conscious selves - do not have things - anywhere in hand.
Our conscious selves - us in ourselves - look like a - dieing breed.
There's a good chance - here on this side of things - we are on our last legs.
Chances are - whatever becomes of things further - ever-more be,
is not "overly" dependant upon us.
Established - out around - wants us - away from ourselves.
Currently - we are - well away from ourselves - in we be.
This is what I think:
JESUS IS LORD! REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND ACCEPT JESUS AS LORD AND SAVIOR OR BURN IN HELLFIRE FOREVER, SCREAMING IN UNENDING AGONY AS THE DEMONS RIP OPEN YOUR STOMACH AND DEVOUR YOUR INTESTINES!! ALL OTHER RELIGIONS ARE LIES OF SATAN!!!
