    “While reading Manly P. Hall’s “The Secret Destiny of America”, I noticed he mentioned a person –not named in the book– who apparently influenced the creation of the american flag and called himself “The Professor”. What I wanted to know is if you know, from your own studies, if this man had anything to do with the well-known european aristocrat who called himself the Count of Saint Germain.”

    My opinion is the professor might be Weishaupt himself more then St.Germain cause as I remember there were letters circulating and connections through some people that were members of the founding fathers or close associates of them. As fathers of the revolutions round the world, the Illuminati might have triggered the American revolution for the independence with their connections in the new continent.

    The story is made up after the fact. Occult myth making is the modus operandi of initiatic societies. Lots of myths surrounding the Illuminati as well. They had no connections to the new world, either directly or indirectly. The American revolution influenced radicals and potential revolutionaries in Europe (e.g. the Illuminati and the Jacobins), not the other way around.

    I haven’t read the full article yet but there’s one thing that stands out and that I feel compelled to clear up if I may… Saint Germain is far from, “NewAge”, He is One of the thirteen Ascended Masters; A Holy Brother- OLD, Divine Wisdom and so much more than that. ☺
    The term may have been used in this case because of a lack of a better description however I feel (and I don’t want to use the word, ‘offensive’…), that it really doesn’t do Him justice. 💜

    St. Germain in Occult mythical lore is the same as Christian Rosenkruetz. It’s an allegory.

    • Over the years it has turned into that, and more. But during the 18th century he was a real, live, living person. Karl von Hessen Kassel had dinner with him every night and made potions and indulged in arcana with him for kicks (and twice on Sundays). The myth-making Rosicrucians are the culprits in perpetuating and extending the lore surrounding him; the new agers picked up the ball and flew to Mars with it, putting him in the patheon of “Ascended Masters” along with Jesus, Buddha and space aliens.
