    For those who are tired of conspiracy theories and secret organization stories, ask yourself why we still have the "all seeing eye" stamped upon our currency.

    We're not living in the 1800's anymore, so why do we allow myths of the Free Masons and the Illuminati continue to thrive by having this on our currency? Who gives a rat's behind about either one of these groups?

    I mean secret societies who place themselves in the role of "those to whom the torch has been passed"....please spare us from this ridiculousness. :rolleyes:

    LOL
    I was paying attention, you just didn't list any valid reasons to get rid of something that we've had for a long long time. Other than the fact that you don't like it, that is. Basically, what I read was a useless ramble.

    Fair enough, but I don't believe

    is useless ramble at all. What use do you believe America has for symbols that represent groups like the Masons or the Illuminati?...or any "secret society"? Any association between secret societies and or government go against everything a supposedly open society stands for. We are not supposed to have any "clubs" running our government.

    If you care to contribute, try using some valid points rather than just insulting. I do a lot of things, but I do not ramble.

    So you're point is that we should keep the symbol because we've had it "for a long time". Gee, is that so? We also had slavery for a long time. :rolleyes:

    DSHoyt, do you really care about secret societies?

    LOL
    Nope, I don't care about secret societies. You still haven't said what we should replace it with.

    This is how the eye is describe.."The Eye of Providence, or the all-seeing eye, is a symbol showing an eye surrounded by rays of light or a glory and usually enclosed by a triangle. It is sometimes interpreted as representing the eye of God keeping watch on humankind"
    "The Eye is positioned above an unfinished pyramid with thirteen steps, representing the original thirteen states and the future growth of the country. The lowest level of the pyramid shows the year 1776 in Roman numerals. The combined implication is that the Eye, or God, favors the prosperity of the United States."
    What do you have against that?? Should we replace it with Homer Simpson or something?? Why would our government spend the money to replace it, surely there is other things our government should be worried about.
    So tell me, why should we suddenly replace the eye...that we've been using since the 1780s??

    Ohhh...and just to add a thought, about your conspiracy theories and masonary...the Great Seal was created, prior to the masons using the symbol...

    "Popular among conspiracy theorists is the claim that the Eye of Providence shown atop an unfinished pyramid on the Great Seal of the United States indicates the influence of Freemasonry in the founding of the United States. This was dramatised in the 2004 Disney film National Treasure. However, the first Masonic use of the Eye dates to 14 years after the creation of the Great Seal, and the Masonic version does not incorporate a pyramid, although the enclosing triangle is often interpreted as one. Furthermore, among the three members of the original design committee for the Great Seal (or any of the ones that followed it), only Benjamin Franklin was a Mason. Indeed, many Masonic organizations have explicitly denied any connection to the creation of the Sea"

    Thanks.
    And still no answer, to what you'd like to see replace the seal.
