The archetype of Baphomet gets mentioned in a recent post by a conspiracy theorist in recovery at “How I Became a Conspiracy Theorist and Lived to Tell the Tale

 

“While skeptical that the world was really controlled by a clandestine network of shape-shifting reptilian creatures from the lower fourth dimension — as Icke apparently claimed — I couldn’t really figure out why the hell George Washington was posing like Baphomet.”

 

“Reptiles?”

“I don’t really believe that part.”

“So why do you believe the rest?”

“The symbols. You need to look at them. They’re everywhere.”

“If they’re so secret, why do they want to leave their mark on everything?”

“I’m not sure. Maybe I haven’t gotten to that part in the book yet.”

“Maybe you’re an idiot.”

“Maybe.”

The Deeper Symbolism of Freemasonry from The Meaning of Masonry by Walter Leslie Wilmshurst.

“It is well to emphasize then, at the outset, that Masonry is a sacramental system possessing, like all sacraments, an outward and visible side consisting; of its ceremonial, its doctrine and its symbols which we can see and hear, and an inward, intellectual, and spiritual side, which is concealed behind the ceremonial, the doctrine and the symbols, and which is available only to the Mason who has learned to use his spiritual imagination and who can appreciate the reality that lies behind the veil of outward symbol.” [via]
