The Birth of Jesus to the year 2055
This is a year by year timeline of Deus Ex, meaning it isn’t „Friday JC Denton starts at UNATCO” It is „2052 JC Denton becomes an active agent, leaves UNATCO with brother Paul, defeats Majestic 12.”
-02 Estimated time that Jesus of Nazareth is born. This estimate is likely more accurate than the traditional „0”. Jesus is believed by Christians to be the „Anointed one” Messiah in the Jewish tongue, Christ in the Greek. He shakes up the world a bit, this has profound effects on just about everyone.
30 Estimated time of the Sermon on the Mount, where Jesus of Nazareth speaks of a:
„City on the Hill.”
33 Estimated time of the death of Jesus of Nazareth. He is nailed to a cross in a mode of execution known as crucifixion, created to cause pain. It involves being nailed through the palms and heels, and then left there to die of (after many other things) suffocation. This is result of the actions of three men, the head priest, the Roman governor, and Jesus himself. By allowing, and even encouraging his own death he fulfills a few prophecies.
33 Christianity, a sect of Judaism, is founded shortly after the death of Jesus. There were many players in this, Peter, James, and, most importantly, Mary Magdalene, author of the Gospel of John. This would become the predominant religion on earth.
1090 Hassan Sabah founded the Order of Assassins or Hashishim.
1118 Baldwin II, the Patriarch of Jerusalem accepted the vow of Hugues de Payens, a knight from Champagne, and eight other knights to forever protect the „Kingdom of Christendom.” They were given charitable lodgings in the city temple where they became the „pauvres chevaliers du temple”, or the „poor knights of the temple”. This was the beginning of the Templar Knights, an order of warrior monks.
1128 The Council of Troyes. The Templar Knights adopted the austere, monastic Rule of St. Benedict, along with the white garments of the Cistercians – adding to them the characteristic red cross that symbolized their willingness to spill their own blood in the defense of the One True Faith. Templar Knights receive papal approval.
1215 Earliest records that the oracle found relating to the Illuminati and Majestic 12 are from this year.

1227 Possible alternate birth date of St. Thomas Aquinas.

1310 May 12th Fifty-four Templars who had recanted after having confessed were condemned as relapsed and publicly burned.
1311 The dissolution of the order of the Templar Knights. According to The Red Cross: A History of the Knights Templar by Richard Baigent. This is incorrect, it is probably a mistake based on the fact that the council which they were condemned in began in this year.
1312 The order of the Templar Knights is dissolved. According to some sources.
1314 The last Grand Master of the Temple (Templar leader), Jacques de Molay, is martyred.

1492 Columbus, son in law to a former grand master of the Knights of Christ makes trip to America, under a „Knights of Christ” Templar cross. -Pope Alexander VI commuted the vow of celibacy to that of conjugal chastity finding regular marriage preferable to concubinage. This marked the decline of the order, which though it never died became less warrior monks, and more just plain warriors.
1493 Paracelsus, whose real name is Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim, is born. He is regarded by many as the true founder of Rosicrucianism.
1541 Paracelsus dies.
1561 On January 21st Sir Francis Bacon is born. He becomes a prominent Rosicrucianism. Some say he is the founder. (Yes that’s right everyone founded this damn order. Even you and me, it makes it hard to find a date of founding.)
1586 German Lutheran pastor Johann Valentin Andrae is born. Some say he is the founder of Rosicrucianism.

1638 The Muses Threnodie by H. Adamson is published. It says:
„For what we do presage is riot in grosse, for we are brethren of the Rosie Crosse; We have the Mason Word and second sight, Things for to come we can fortell aright.”
This is the only one of the links between Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry that I have been able to put a date on (and thus include.) It is unsure whether the links are small overlap of ritual and idea, or larger more telling things.
1644 The Qing captured Beijing, but spend the next twenty years fighting Ming loyalists in southern China.

1791 Washington wrote that freemasonry was:
„founded in justice and benevolence,” and „the grand object of Masonry is to promote the happiness of the human race.”
1798 Washington writes:
„. . . So far as I am acquainted with the principles and Doctrines of Free Masonry, I conceive them to be founded on benevolence and to be exercised for the good of mankind.

1853 The impetus of the Taiping Rebellion suffers as Hong Xiuquan withdraws from active control. He devotes himself to meditation, and, allegedly, more sensual pursuits. The failure of the movement to secure European support or that of the middle classes is another blow.
1860 An attempt to take Shanghai in August is repulsed by forces under the command of Frederick Townsend Ward, the force is later became the ‚Ever-Victorious Army’ led by ‚Chinese’ Gordon.

-The two basic functions of the NSA are outlined as follows: (1) „to protect the ‚Communications Security’ (COMSEC) of US telecommunications that are national security related and (2) to obtain foreign intelligence related telecommunications through the interception of ‚Signals Intelligence’ (SIGNIT).”
-The latter represents the NSA’s main activity. Two elements comprise SIGNIT. The first is „Communications Intelligence” (COMINT) which is intelligence obtained through the interception of electronic message communications (ie. telegrams and telephone communication) and the second is „Electronic Intelligence”(ELINT) which is intelligence obtained though the interception of electronic signals (ie. radar and missile emissions.)
1954 The Bildeberg Group is founded. The group meets for 4 days every year and is made up of 115 of the most powerful people on earth. The meetings are secret. Some say it is the executive committee of the Illuminati, in reality it is a new branch. The Illuminati knew that politics and religion was no longer enough to control the world.
-The Bilderberg Group is created to control financial matters around the world through vast mining operations, control over the Federal Reserve Board, The Eurobank and the World Bank as well as through a stranglehold on the world’s supply of gold.
-Majestic Twelve is founded sometime after to control technology and communications. It develops advanced technology and decides what to release to the public.

1989 Lars Huttar uses a description of the seminal oracle program to write his oracle program, which is posted to alt.sources in August. This program inspires the Usenet Oracle.
-Steve Kinzler, a systems administrator and graduate student at Indiana University, installs Huttar’s program on silver.ucs.indiana.edu, where it proves to be quite popular. The best Oracularities are posted to in.bizarre, a group local to Indiana.
1996 March 12th The Usenet Oracle is renamed The Internet Oracle. Ray Moody, a graduate student at Purdue University, wrote the core software for this after correspondence with Kinzler.
-Kinzler would continue the development of the system, adding support for the Oracularities postings and ratings and, eventually, the Oracle Priesthood — a hardy and loyal band of volunteers who read through the hundreds of questions and answers each week to choose the best for publication.
1997 The sovereignty of Hong Kong is handed over by the UK to the PRC. A top official of the PRC central law enforcement agency publicly acknowledges his acceptance of the Triad.

The „fertility experts” assure her that the surgery is minor and the risk is minimal.
-After the parents of Paul Denton agree the mother is implanted with a cloned embryo of Paul. Their lived have already been carefully monitored by MJ12 for many years.
2029 JC Denton born on 3/17

**Somnolente Ile, an exclusive resort in Cote d’Azur, was the site of a clandestine meeting between then President Serra and reputed members of the Zuganov crime family in an attempt to funnel almost three billion credits of tainted money through French banks. The deal was reportedly brokered by a cabal of major banking interests – including deceased financier Beth DuClare, her involvement was never proved. Some sources went so far as to suggest that the entire meeting was the result of a plot hatched by the „Bilderbergs”, a supposedly secret society formed of wealthy and powerful industrialists shortly after World War II.
