I've always wondered, what exactly does the freemasons do? A co-worker is one, but I didn't get a clear explanation from him.

Also interested in this... my grandfather was a freemason, but I wasn't old enough when he passed to learn anything about what they were and what they did... also curious.

I saw a show about it once, freemasons go way back, they were kind of like a secret society or group. A lot of people these days think they're just shriners. If you look on the back of the dollar bill there is evidence of freemasons "look at the pyramid". You should be able to find something about them on youtube I would think or the History Channel.

And you won't. They do not talk about it.

Started with the Crusaders who made some...discoveries...dating back to the time of the Hebrews in Egypt, in the ruins of what was Solomon's temple. Thus the Knights Templars...wealth and power...Shroud of Turin...Friday the 13th...Pirate ships and flags...the REAL quest for the Holy Grail...Rosslyn...George Washington...Why there's no North door on Texas' capitol building...

Lotsa Masonic and Templar books--I got mine from the discount pile at Barnes & Noble. (Maybe that explains a lot.)

Is it true that if a free mason passes away you are suppose to give the Masonic items back to the group they belonged to?

University Heights #738 F&AM here. I joined recently, my grandpa has been a mason for almost 50 years. I grew up around it, attending all the family events and meeting his friends over the years. Now I'm waiting til November for the Scottish Rite stuff! It's been great so far.

Rodhotz has the answer. My FIL was a FreeMason and even he wouldn't tell me everything or really tell me anything. The only thing he told me was that it involved a goat in the initiation You would have had to know him, he was quite the jokester.

I'm curious as to the answer to that also. When my FIL (really ex-FIL0 passed away, for some reason, I am thinking he was buried with his Masonic ring. I may be wrong on that though.
