On Friday, Andrew Burnett of PokerTube.com questioned whether it is possible that PokerStars could be part of the Illuminati, including supporting proof of such with various symbolism, not to mention PokerStars got its start on 9/11, a tragic event in US history that is often center stage of many conspiracy theorists.
The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, "enlightened") is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious, that are believed to possess special power or knowledge of something.
Burnett’s piece includes evidence of secret symbolism such as the letter ‘A’ in PokerStars parent company Amaya logo featuring three ‘plain sight’ pyramids and PokerStars own logo incorporating a pentagram.
“The five-pointed star is one of the most potent, powerful, and persistent symbols in human history."
Burnett goes on to question PokerStars “New World Order”:
Buying up Full Tilt and merging it into PokerStars, the recent decision to pay off PKR.com’s player debts but claiming to want nothing in return, pushing casinos and sportsbooks – what is the plan? It’s a masterplan, actually, in the tradition of conspiracy theories everywhere.
Spend a fortune buying a good poker company, change it in so many ways it becomes unrecognizable, but in doing so they get rid of those who understand what’s happening, rake in the money to pay off the debt, release their new version of ‘poker’ to far-flung untapped corners of the globe (India,China) make an even bigger fortune and then… well, that remains to be seen.
‘Illuminati’-conspiracies tend not to have a clear ending, but generally they involve those connected to the ‘secret society’ in positions of power everywhere they are needed… and ‘suddenly’ the average person has no control or say in whatever sphere they are involved in.
