See Which Stars Are Definitely Members of the Illuminati (Video)

Illuminati
Earlier today, a Yahoo News story indicated that it would let people see which stars are definitely members of the secretive group called the Illuminati. In a colorful slideshow, Yahoo presented a group of celebrities as diverse as Jay Z, Madonna, Lindsay Lohan, Beyonce and others. Most of the pictures show the stars holding their hands in a so-called “secret Illuminati symbol” which is a triangle formed with the thumbs and forefingers. Other stars who have been “caught” making this symbol include Rihanna, Kesha and Kanye West, among others.

There are also other hand signals these stars use which some say prove the celebs are definitely members of the Illuminati. Those hand symbols are the “a-ok” sign, the hand covering one eye, and putting a circle of the forefinger and thumb in front of the eye as if to indicate looking through a microscope. These signs, say some, indicate that the star performing the symbol is a member of the Illuminati, who will soon usher in a New World Order. This new order is also connected to digital/electronic money and will eventually lead to the coming of the Antichrist and the “end of days” or Armageddon. So, which stars are flashing hand signals to let all the world know the celeb is a participant in taking over the world?

None.

No stars are members of the Illuminati because an organized and powerful group such as this cannot, does not, and will never exist. What does exist is normal, otherwise rational human beings with a propensity toward natural brain processes to find patterns and meanings in random events that are not actually connected. This phenomenon is called “confirmation bias,” or, looking for evidence that confirms the theory one wants to be true.

Oh, the Illuminati used to exist, but they disbanded long ago; and they were never intent on starting a New World Order, they were just a group of folks who disagreed with the monarchy. Further, today’s modern “Illuminati” is nothing more than a racist, anti-Semitic, and sometimes paranoid version of an unreachable fantasy; a societal meme that has taken hold in a portion of the population so strongly that now even reputable companies like Yahoo are feeding into the hysteria.

For the record, the hand symbol of the triangle, so often used by Jay Z, Beyoncé, et al, was proven eight years ago to be a way for Jay Z to promote his own record company, Roc A Fella Records. In fact, the hand symbol was already trademarked by a wrestler to promote a wrestling company, and that wrestler sued Jay Z for copyright infringement. The two men ultimately settled, but Jay Z’s hand gesture is officially a way to advertise his record company and has absolutely nothing to do with the Illuminati.

Why do other stars use it? Well, most of them are somehow connected to Jay Z, and even if they’re not, why does anyone copy anything? Why do people get their hair cut like Rihanna or wear clothes like Madonna? Why do choreographers copy each other’s dance moves? Why do children play the same hand games passed down through generations? We copy because we’re programmed by nature to mimic others. It’s the same reason babies smile and kids do cartwheels. We mimic because we are born to do so.

What about the “A-ok sign,” the hand over the eye, and the “keyhole in front of the eye” sign? Well, the first one has always meant “A-ok.” It’s meant that for hundreds of years. The other “signs?” Who knows? Why does anyone use any hand gesture? Maybe it doesn’t mean anything. Maybe the stars think it’s cool. Maybe they saw someone do it and they adopted it for themselves.

When we go onto sites such as Yahoo and view a slide show of stars all using the same hand gesture, the more gullible among us may view the collective photos as “proof” of these stars being definite members of the Illuminati. However, that is simply the brain making a pattern out of something in which no pattern exists.
For example, it would be easy to compile a slideshow of thousands of teens all making the popular “peace sign” symbol at a rock concert. Does this mean anything, necessarily? Does it mean they’re connected to a particular group, that they always practice peace, or even that they want peace in the world? Not really. Why do they all do it, then? For the same reason celebs mimic each other’s hand symbols. We’re humans; we copy each other. We do it because it’s cool or fun or even just for the heck of it.

Which stars are definitely members of the Illuminati? It’s clear to see the answer is “none.” Belief in the Illuminati is a product of the natural brain processes of confirmation bias and motivated reasoning; nothing more. A solid understanding of the neuroscience behind such processes and the application of critical thinking skills should soundly discredit belief in such things as the Illuminati, conspiracies, prophecies and so forth. Please view the video below for a thorough explanation of these two natural brain mechanisms, and the next time you see a Jay Z concert, relax! He, like the majority of other stars, is promoting nothing but himself.

    Coincidence that when im trying to find out the truth behind these consistent triangle and eye symbols the first thing i click on is this fake article riddled with flaws?
    ” Well, most of them are somehow connected to Jay Z, and even if they’re not, why does anyone copy anything? ”
    All artists are not somehow magically connected to jay z. This hand symbol is seen so many times by so many different celebs and none of us even know what it means? Great way for the whole music industry to promote jay z huh? This hand symbol is not just a normal hand gesture that everyone uses. These hand symbols have also been shown alot before jay z even started using it so why was those celebs doing it if they was not copying Jay?
    This article just made me more suspicious 🙁

    HA! Whoever wrote this article works for the Illuminati! The Rothschild based group in pervasive in every industry to attempt a planetary takeover. Targeting the youth of the planet with the music, movie and entertainment industries is only one part of the long term scheme. The Banking Systems, FAA, Television Programming and News Feeds ,Wars, Economies, Weather, Mind Kontrol (MK Ultra and others), HAARP, Fake Food from fake seeds (Monsanto and others) – and more. You’ve all heard about the annual BILDEBERG NWO meetings of the group. Look up it’s members and images of how the hotel sites chosen each year are totally fenced off to any public and surrounded by guards so that no press can find out what is really being planned each year. Colorado has been chosen for much of the activity going on behind the scenes, like building underground communities for the elite in case of violent earth changes or nuclear fallout – like the Cheyene Tunnel, if you’re familiar with DIA (Denver Intl Airport) statues and murals that represent our end and their complete takeover plan, as detailed on the Georgia Guide Stones.
    We need to take back our birthright control of our lives.stay The simplest practice for these times is to stay in present time and stay informed to what is actually happening.

      So you’re saying that the devil is trying to convince the world it doesn’t exist, yet the illuminati spread out their triangles, eyes and all other symbols EVERYWHERE in media, fashion and at public events?
      Reading all those comments i start believing that the world will go down not because of the illuminati but because of how incredibly stupid people are.
      And yes I am in the illuminati too. All hail to jay z and satan.
      idiots

    OMG…what kind of bulls#*t this person is talking about… Tell me something, are you really calling yourself a journalist Rebecca or did you just forward this crap? Well it s not very clear who actually wrote this article. But anyway, just because you don’t know about it means it doesn’t exist. Please do your job properly or at least get some information. Literally it is like saying Freemasonry does not exist, but it does unfortunately.

    “Who knows? Why does anyone use any hand gesture? Maybe it doesn’t mean anything. Maybe the stars think it’s cool.”

    Solid investigative journalism.

    This article is so poorly written and lacks any source or evidence for your claims. I don’t know if you just happened to write a poor article, or your shill of an editor asked you to produce this piece but either way you need to research your own article and re-write this thing. Sorry to leave so many comments but it would not all fit in one post.

    “We copy because we’re programmed by nature to mimic others. It’s the same reason babies smile and kids do cartwheels. We mimic because we are born to do so.”

    We are programmed by NATURE to mimic others? We are not programmed by MEDIA, TELEVISION and SCHOOL to mimic others? You think babies smile because they saw it somewhere and thought “that looks fun”? This is just such a poor claim and lacks any evidence what so ever.

    “…proven eight years ago to be a way for Jay Z to promote his own record company, Roc A Fella Records.”

    Rockefeller is intimately tied with the NWO. The symbolism of the triangle hand is connected with Illuminati symbolism. But you say he is just promoting his record label, coincidentally named Roc A Fella and coincidentally with the same symbolism as the secret cabal.

    “No stars are members of the Illuminati because an organized and powerful group such as this cannot, does not, and will never exist.”
    “Oh, the Illuminati used to exist, but they disbanded long ago”
    “Further, today’s modern “Illuminati” is nothing more than…”

    A bit contradictory to say the group CANNOT and WILL NEVER exist and you say in your next paragraph that they used to exist but ‘disbanded long ago’. Then you further go on to say that ‘today’s modern “illuminati”…’ implying there is a modern illuminati today. Do you have a source for these conclusions and a clear train of thought to present them properly?
