“Then for a time all goes well, and the soul hardly knows it is hidden in a strange garment till the soul begins to be weakly” – Max Muller (German Philologist and Orientalist)


The “God Gene” theory has been a subject for hot debate amongst the ranks of evolutionary psychologists for years now. To the extent that even mainstream publications such as Time Magazine have dedicated whole cover stories to the debate.

At its core the theory seeks to explain the universality of religion. Namely how, all cultures and ethnicities regardless of their origin come to the same conclusions regarding the nature of human existence. Almost every religion shares a belief in an eternal soul that will go on to exist in the afterlife; similarly each society has its own methods of achieving connection with this metaphysical realm. Of course, wherever a conviction in the afterlife, the soul and the power of ritual is found, you will also find an unwavering belief in one, or multiple, supernatural beings that have the ability to affect the physical world.

The “God Gene” theory ascribes these common belief systems to the presence of a gene, specifically encoded into our DNA to better equips us to commune with our creator. Opponents of the theory however, argue different a basis for the origin of these universal concepts. They say that religious belief developed as a tool to help bond together communities, that it grew from a human need to understand morality, or that it’s simply a reaction to the fear of the unknown.

Whatever your personal take on faith is, it’s clear that our urge to transcend the bounds of our physical existence is a very real urge. Nobody understands these compulsions better than the cult, and few groups are more adept in using them to manipulate, cajole and ultimately recruit individuals towards their own purpose, than cults.

In this early series of monographs, the text of which can be read on, The Order of the Rosae Crucis  (Rosicrucian Order -AMORC) makes it clear, that as a student your teaching will be supremely focused on understanding the soul and spiritual realm.

 “If someone is ill in mind, body, or heart, and you can help, encourage him, give him confidence and happiness through letting him read your Rosicrucian Digest”

There is an internal dilemma that sits at the heart of every so-called secret society, such as  AMORC (ROSICRUCIAN ORDER AMORC). On the one hand there is a desire to protect, and elevate, the society’s teachings in order to preserve their obscurity and authority. On the other hand, cults live and grow on their ability to attract new members, ready to devote their time, effort and money to the cause of the organization.

“By “secrecy” we mean reverence. We are told to hold in respect those principles, those laws that have been entrusted to us as members. We are to cast about with discrimination the gems of truth which we have been privileged to gather and the laws we have been taught to use.” 


AMORC (ROSICRUCIAN ORDER AMORC) resolves this struggle quite artfully. In the full text which is available at, you’ll see how the Class Master, defines which information is considered appropriate to reveal, and which members of the general public are considered discriminating enough to appeal to. Of course, the sacred knowledge contained within the monographs is considered off-limits, this is the lifeblood of the Order, and is main tool in inspiring ever greater acts of devotion from members.

Instead of revealing these secrets of the inner sanctum, members looking to spread the word, are given carte blanche to reveal their affiliation with  AMORC (ROSICRUCIAN ORDER AMORC), and to use any appropriate society teachings to aid struggling individuals. The fact that the monograph makes specific mention of providing aid to those who are ill, anxious, depressed or merely lacking directions, is no mere coincidence.

While you probably wouldn’t be able to develop a common profile of the prospective cult recruit, as they come from all demographics and walks of life. One uniting theme you would find in almost all of them is that, they came to cult belief in a time of unusual stress, when their usual coping mechanism were no longer working for them.

When a human being is put under great strain, then oftentimes something breaks, and when it does, cults like  AMORC (ROSICRUCIAN ORDER AMORC) are waiting in the wing to take advantage
