Going through the Internet, one finds claims and counter-claims about this most controversial fraternity; Freemasonry.
Even masonic scholars differ in views of history, origins etc, which makes one wonder "is a tree rated by it's roots or by its friuts?". What are the fruits of Masonry? What does it teach behind the walls of the Lodge and in graded degrees? Is it esotericism, mysticism or pure philosophy? If any of the above, then, how is it related to new-age? For instance, the Rosicrucians.
Freemasonry; what is it?
