Known about this for a long time, as this place is local to me back home, but here's a newspaper article about it.

So I found out that there is a museum close to where I live called the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum. It is run by an organization called the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, which are adherents of the cultural movement called Rosicrucianism.

To quote a source online the "AMORC claimed to have been founded by the apostate Akhenaton, generally credited as the first monotheistic sovereign, in ancient Egypt. From there it worked through Western history in 108-year cycles of public and private activity, making an especially strong splash in the Renaissance, when the followers of the legendary “Christian Rosenkreuz” antagonized the Church with their faith in reason, personal enlightenment, and a coming New Age. Many great men in history had allegedly been members of the secret society, and with the 20th century underway, the group’s leaders had apparently decided it was once again time to resurface and open their membership to the masses."

I plan to visit the museum and give an update.

So is this a parody or a real group? First I thought this was a anti-catholic group. Then I thought it was a parody of Christians. But then I thought it was legitimate in being a conspiracy group. I really have no idea now.
