The old theory of Stephen Knight about the Jack the Ripper murders has been revived. It's a very long book, but here is a review: GQ Magazine Review.
Even the review is a bit garbage, but it is long.
So Freemasons are back in the frame. I might even buy the book just to see how wrong Robinson is about the Craft.
Long ago I came to the conclusion that Jack the Ripper is a myth. There were 4 or 5 separate murderers in London that summer.

I have in the past advanced the idea that these ripper murders were a crude form of medical reseach / investigation.
This is an overview of medical knowledge at the time.
Early Victorian ideas of human physiology involved a clear understanding of anatomy (at least among experts; but the populace often had hazy knowledge of the location and role of internal organs), allied to a concept of vital forces focused on the hematological and nervous systems that now seems closer to the ancient 'humours' than to present-day models. Little was known of biochemistry or endocrinology. www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/h/health-and-medicine-in-the-19th-century/
I can imagine an over zealous newbie being curious as to the workings of a living body. But I doubt we will ever be sure
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

The Ancient: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
