Freemasonry's darkest secret
The Second Messiah reveals that the Turin Shroud, far from being
an icon of the established church, provides scientific evidence of
an alternative, hidden history of Western civilisation and the secret
societies that have controlled it. For seven and a half centuries a
piece of cloth was venerated because it bore the image of the
crucified Christ, but in 1988 results of carbon dating showed that
the fabric could not pre-date 12.60. Now new evidence
conclusively proves that it h not a take... yet neither is it the image
of Jesus Christ.
In solving the riddle of the shroud this book unravels a far deeper
mystery, how this medieval artefact links directly both to Jesus and
the man believed to he Jesus's successor. The guardians of this
great secret tried hard to hide it from the world and even their own
members. But they failed to destroy the evidence,,, hidden in
abandoned rituals of Freemasonry.
