The Illuminatis goals are to create a world governement and to get rid of all religions in a hope to unite the world. This group is believed to have helped every major movement since they were formed, but many think they perform satanic rituals and are planning to take over the world for themselves.
It originated in Bavaria when a man named Adam Weishaupt, who's name means, man who leads the wise, founded the Bavarian Illuminati in 1776. He created a small group, some members being Marquis de Savalette de Langes, Charles-Pierre-Paul and Adolph Freiherr Knigge. Together they began to make plans to change the government. They were beginning to become larger when the Bavraian government heard rumors that the Illuminati wanted to create their own government and Weishaupt was removed from his University and banned from Bavaria in the 1780s disbanding the group for a while.
