Assassin’s Creed and the Bible Part 2: The Cap and Eye

Near the end of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Shaun the historian says: “I know this. I know that symbol. That’s a Phrygian Cap. It stands for freedom…and that, that’s a Masonic Eye. Now those two come together in only one place–

A picture of the two symbols:

The unnamed place where these two symbols come together is the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen:

Unlike the Declaration of Independence by which it was inspired, there is no mention of God-let alone Him giving us rights.

These symbols (the Phrygian Cap representing freedom, and the Masonic Eye the occult) emanating from the Apple of Eden and the connection with the declaration mentioned above, combine to form a message of man attempting to “free” himself from God.

Consider Psalm 2:1-5:

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

    That might be right… But speaking of place, what about statue of freedom?
    Or roman god Mithras?
    When you look at the icon portrait of it it pretty much fits the in-game goddess…
    Just thinking…
