In order to become a member of the Masonic fraternity, an individual must kneel before the members of a Lodge, while professing their trust in a God of their choosing. As such, while Freemasonry itself is not a religion, it is, without a doubt, spiritually tied to all religions. And, with the building of all great cathedrals and temples to honor the Great Architect of the Universe comes the science of Geometry, which the current author uses to help trace our fraternity's roots to an age when many believe we didn't yet exist. While doing so, he points out many similarities in the induction of a newly made monk, to that of a mason.
