  1. No, you may read have books written by Freemasons, but that doesn't make them books ABOUT Freemasonry. Not the same thing at all. And even if the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was founded by 3 men who also happened to be Freemasons, it doesn't make it Freemasonry - or anything to do with Freemasonry. From Mike's comment I suspect you might not actually see this, but be that as it may, I will still reiterate that nothing in your studies of interest have anything to do with Freemasonry so we can't help you in your quest. By the way; the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (as distinct from the Greek NeoNazi political movement) no longer exists; it -according to Wikipedia, was dissolved in 1903 .. over 100 years ago. There have been a number of 'organisations' of a similar name, but they are as irrelevant to us as Freemasons as was the original.
  2. You need to contact the Provincial Secretary (I speak as a former ProvAGSec)
  3. Wow. Just ... wow. A bit of an attitude there .. just because he thinks we're not being honest. Ah well - you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. He obviously doesn't understand why I answered as I did, as reading a load of books written by people who also happen to be freemasons is not the same as being a member!
  4. I think you completely misunderstand what Freemasonry is about. First, not one of the subjects you mention have anything to do with Freemasonry - except perhaps Kabbalah, and that only by those interested in the esoteric side. Secondly, it matters not one whit if you are poor or not particularly successful in your chosen career - the only financial consideration is: can you afford an annual membership fee without impacting on your family. What matters is you; are you what people would describe as a good man. Do you believe in God (Christian description for ease). Those are the things that matter. Freemasonry is about learning about yourself; about learning how to be a useful member of society, and gaining the support of like-minded individuals. It's not about investigating the sort of things you mention -unless it's something you personally are curious about, but you won't find any of that in Freemasonry or in our lodges. Incidentally, regarding your email question; assuming you started emailing last year, it's distinctly possible that you haven't had any replies solely down to the pandemic - particularly if, as has been the case in England, all activity has been suspended .. there may not have been many people checking routine enquiries.
  5. Not to mention that the hall bookings are likely already in place and therefore no issues with trying to get space in an already likely fully booked calendar!
  6. We've got 3 in the pipeline; a service lodge, a daylight Installed Masters lodge, and I can't remember what the 3rd is. And a couple of years ago, a Stewards lodge. The ProvGM is the instigator of all these.
  7. ... and further to Mike's welcome, please be aware that joining this message board does not mean that you are now a Freemason. It's a fairly common misperception that you can join online.
  8. Me too Used to have a group at work; we'd get together once a month for beer, pizza and gaming.
  9. Hi Jason, welcome. Big fan of SciFi/Fan - first introduced to it at college with Triplanetary. Got 3 bookcases of the stuff now!
  10. If you're not happy, you're welcome to leave traditional masonry and join a mixed organisation.
  11. FWIW Samson, I wish many others would take the same stance you are, and I sincerly hope you're successful in finding what you're looking for,
  12. Just to clarify Barry's answer; when he says 'the Bible', that can either be just the old Testament, or the Christian Bible comprising both the Old & New Testaments. You don't give any indication of where you are, so we can only answer for the 3 Constitutions here in the UK; the specific requirements in the US for example, are likely to be different in their interpretation of what constitutes a Volume of the Sacred Law (this forum is in the UK). Some of them also ask for, and require a belief in the afterlife - a question that isn't asked here. Similarly, in Sweden, membership requires you to be a Christian.
  13. I've never heard of it, but it smacks of US origin .. if you happen to reside in the States, you need to be aware that this is a UK based forum.
  14. Theoretically -but highly unlikely, our Provincial Meeting, nominally scheduled for 2 July, could take place ... but more likely to occur on the backup date of 21 October
  15. I know you won't say - and I understand why not, but I'd be really curious to know the Craft Province you belong to as I have met a fair few of the PGMs/Deps/Secs of the Provinces surrounding London when I was ASec of my Province and in my current capacity, and they'd be horrified to discover what you've intimated goes on under their noses!
