Have you ever wondered what do Freemasons do in their Masonic Rituals? The Freemasons themselves will not speak to anyone about their Masonic degrees or their secret rituals. Although the Freemasons are the keepers of secrets they are also a group with amnesia. The Masons have been blind to their history since they came out of total secrecy in 1717. Some Freemasons say that they are descended from the medieval stone guilds; the other side says that they are the direct descendants of the Knights Templar! What is the truth? This is a no spin book on the Secrets of the Freemasons! Everything you ever wanted to know and never could find out is in this clear strait to the point book , without all the fluff. Just the real answers to your questions. These secrets most Freemasons them selves don't know because they are not in the higher degrees of Freemasonry and stopped at the third degree, which is the Master Mason degree. All three of the basic degrees of Freemasonry are covered and you get the real insight from a Freemason himself. Which signs and symbols of Freemasonry are truly important including the secret handshakes of the Freemasons. You will also find out why they hold secret armed guarded meeting! If you are a Freemason, you should know that this book was written by a Freemason and you would be surprised with what secrets you don't know! For wives, girlfriends, family members and people that just want to know more about the Freemasons, you will learn it in this book! If you are tired of asking your Mason, what exactly is going on in their meetings and always get a, “I can’t tell you” reply? What many Masons are not aware of is that there are many facets of the Craft that we can discuss openly. You will find these and many more secrets in Freemason’s Secrets: The True Descendants of the Knights Templar. If you really want to know the Secrets of the Freemasons, you will find them in this book.

The Facts of Causation

Author: D.H. Mellor

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134860331

Category: Philosophy

Page: 264

View: 3829

Everything we do relies on causation. We eat and drink because this causes us to stay alive. Courts tell us who causes crimes, criminology tell us what causes people to commit them. D.H. Mellor shows us that to understand the world and our lives we must understand causation. The Facts of Causation, now available in paperback, is essential reading for students and for anyone interested in reading one of the ground-breaking theories in metaphysics. We cannot understand the world and our place in it without understanding causation. Yet a complete account of the nature and implications of causation does not exist. D.H Mellor's new book is that account.

Declining by Degrees

Higher Education at Risk

Author: Richard H. Hersh,John Merrow

Publisher: St. Martin's Press

ISBN: 1466893389

Category: Education

Page: 256

View: 2018

What is actually happening on college campuses in the years between admission and graduation? Not enough to keep America competitive, and not enough to provide our citizens with fulfilling lives. When A Nation at Risk called attention to the problems of our public schools in 1983, that landmark report provided a convenient "cover" for higher education, inadvertently implying that all was well on America's campuses. Declining by Degrees blows higher education's cover. It asks tough--and long overdue--questions about our colleges and universities. In candid, coherent, and ultimately provocative ways, Declining by Degrees reveals: - how students are being short-changed by lowered academic expectations and standards; -why many universities focus on research instead of teaching and spend more on recruiting and athletics than on salaries for professors; -why students are disillusioned; -how administrations are obsessed with rankings in news magazines rather than the quality of learning; -why the media ignore the often catastrophic results; and -how many professors and students have an unspoken "non-aggression pact" when it comes to academic effort. Declining by Degrees argues persuasively that the multi-billion dollar enterprise of higher education has gone astray. At the same time, these essays offer specific prescriptions for change, warning that our nation is in fact at greater risk if we do nothing.
