I was watching Nickelodeon and this episode caught my attention. I am going to give you a basic rundown of what this episode is about. But because of my time constraints and because my hands would get tired if I typed the whole thing down, I’ll just take it from a source. Here is my source: http://en.spongepedia.bimserver2.com/index.php?title=Cephalopod_Lodge_(Episode)
While working at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob notices that Squidward has a huge smile on his face. For some unknown reason, Squidward is always happy on the third Wednesday of every month. Not knowing what to do, SpongeBob runs to Mr. Krabs’ office. When the two look out of Mr. Krabs’ door, they see Squidward excitedly speaking to Roger, a fellow cephalopod. During the evening, SpongeBob and Patrick are determined to find out what Squidward’s “secret Wednesday secret” is. They follow Squidward to a secret society, the Cephalopod Lodge, whose meeting place is shaped like a pyramid.
After providing the secret handshake to the guard, Squidward is allowed inside. SpongeBob and Patrick sneak in soon after. Inside is a large diverse group of cephalopods in fancy robes and headdresses. Everybody is talking together and having a good time. Then a horn sounds and they all gather around the chief to watch a new member being initiated by facing his greatest fear, “Cantankerous Moray Eeleus” (being stung by an eel in a cage). SpongeBob and Patrick watch too. When the chief realizes that SpongeBob and Patrick have seen the initiation, he screams because no outsiders have ever witnessed one before. Once it becomes clear that Squidward was followed to the meeting, Squidward is banned and all three are kicked out of the pyramid. When Spongebob and Patrick try to reason with the guard, they say it’s not their fault or Squidward’s. The guard asks who is responsible, and Patrick tells the guard it could be his fault, and Squidward remains banned for life.
SpongeBob and Patrick try to make it up to Squidward by starting a club called the ‘Feather Friends’. In the club they wear chicken costumes. For initiation, each member must be stung by a jellyfish on their tongue. When Squidward does it, he flies high above the sea bottom. SpongeBob and Patrick soon realize that Squidward would like to be a member of the Cephalopod Lodge, not their club. SpongeBob and Patrick devise a plan to hide in a big sock and pretend to be a giant albino eel, scaring the members of the Cephalopod Lodge. Squidward will defeat the eel and be allowed back in the club. Everything goes as planned, but just when the members are going to welcome Squidward back to the club, SpongeBob and Patrick fly out of the sock and congratulate Squidward. The members kick all three of them out again. Finally, SpongeBob tries to cheer Squidward up by remembering the ‘Feather Friends’: Patrick gets out a jellyfish and it stings Squidward on the tongue. The episode ends with Squidward screaming in pain from the jellyfish sting. The End.
Notice that Squidward’s lodge is called a “secret society” and that it is shaped like a “pyramid”. Why is this so important, and why is there a connection to Freemasonry, you ask? Well, just take a look at the picture to the right.
This is the Great Seal of the United States and it is plain sight on the back of your one dollar bill. The seal was adopted in 1782 but wasn’t put on the dollar until FDR. The elevated capstone with the blazing eye is said to be the eye of Horus. Some have tried to debunk this as the eye of God, but in reality pyramids come from Egypt and Egyptians in Biblical times were not Christians, and the pyramid is not a Christian symbol, the cross is. Another thing is that can you think of anything in U.S. history that involves a pyramid. I love the history of my country and I cannot. The all seeing eye and pyramid has had a long standing history in Freemasonry. Masons trace their origins back to building King Solomon’s temple.
“Our beautiful seal is an expression of Freemasonry, an expression of occult ideas.” (Wyckoff, H. S. The Great American Seal. The Mystic Light, the Rosicrucian Magazine, p.56)
Henry Wallace (Secretary of Agriculture) and soon-to-be vice president in 1934 submitted to then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt a proposal to have the seal placed on a coin. Even though Roosevelt (a Freemason) liked the idea, he instead opted to have the seal placed on the dollar.
According to Wallace, Roosevelt thought that Novus Ordo Seclorum meant “New Deal of the Ages”. Wallace would later make this confession:
“Roosevelt as he looked at the colored reproduction of the Seal was first struck with the representation of the ‘All-Seeing Eye,’ a Masonic representation of Great Architect the Universe. Next he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 (May 1st, 1776, founding of the Illuminati) but would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt like myself was a 32nd degree Mason. He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill rather that a coin.”
Now that we have this established, we cannot deny that the Great Seal, which is not Christian and has entirely nothing to do with the faith, is in fact, of Masonic origins.
I am sure you’ve heard of these guys – Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystics Shrine – Shriners for short. Well, Franklin D. Roosevelt was apart of that. Anton LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan) says that Roosevelt’s Shriners have a ritual closely related to that of satanic rituals called “The Ceremony of the Stifling Air”
“The original Templars’ rite of the Fifth degree symbolically guided the candidate through the Devil’s Pass in the mountains separating the East from the West (the Yezidi domain). At the fork of the trail the candidate would make an important decision: either to retain his present identity, or strike out on the Left-Hand Path to Shambhala, where he might dwell in Satan’s household, having rejected the foibles and hypocrisies of the everyday world.
A striking parallel to this rite is enacted within the mosques of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, an order reserved for thirty-second degree Masons. The Nobles have gracefully removed themselves from any implication of heresy by referring to the place beyond the Devil’s Pass as the domain where they might “worship at the shrine of Islam.”
Once the celebrant has taken this degree, he embarks upon the Left Hand Path and chooses Hell in place of Heaven.”
Where is the connection between Squidward’s secret society and the Shriners? If you click on the video link at the bottom of this article you will see. Squidward and his fellow members wear a goofy red hat. On the front of that hat is what looks to me to be an “all seeing eye”. Coming off of that “eye” are six lines (three on top and three on the bottom). We’ll call them “eyelashes”. But when one looks at the picture to the right, they can see a resemblance. In case you were wondering what that symbol on the front of their hats means, here is a description.
“The symbol of the Order is a crescent moon, made from the claws of a Bengal tiger, engraved with a pyramid, an urn and a pentagram. The crescent is suspended from a scimitar and in the Order is a representation of the Universal Mother worshipped in ancient times as Isis. The horns of the crescent point downwards because it represents the setting moon of the old faith at the rising of the Sun of the new religion of the brotherhood of humanity.”– The Occult Conspiracy, p.93
