the second one is pretty much straight from the 1999 Sunday Times article. I know that the first link is pretty sensationalist but thats what makes it fun.
Benjamin Franklin, born in Boston. Was one of the diplomats chosen to negotiate peace with Great Britain, and who helped draft the Declaration of Independence, one of the 56 who signed this document, and was instrumental in achieving the adoption of the U.S. Constitution. Was also a Mason. Franklin was the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania and published the first Masonic book in America. Was also a member of Sir Francis Dashwood's Hell Fire Club, along with the Collins family of Satanists. Both Franklin and Thomas Jefferson were members of this purely Satanic group who practiced satanic sexual occult rituals.
"Remains of ten bodies at Ben Franklin's home"
Workmen have dug up the remains of ten bodies hidden beneath the former London home of Benjamin Franklin, the founding father of American Independence.
The remains of four adults and six children were discovered during the 31.9 million restoration of Franklin's home at 36 Craven Street, close to Trafalgar Square. Researchers believe that there could be more bodies buried beneath the basement kitchens.
Initial estimates are that the bones are about 200 years old and were buried at the time Franklin was living in the house, which was his home from 1757 to 1762, and from 1764 to 1775. Most of the bones show signs of having been dissected, sawn or cut. One skull has been drilled with several holes. Paul Knapman, the Westminster coroner, said yesterday: "1 cannot totally discount the possibility of a crime. There is still a possibility that I may have to hold an inquest."
it was on the internet somewhere, i'll try to find the site and post a link, i later read somwhere else that the dead bodies probably were just used by his doctor friend for research, but it's still creepy becuase that means ben helped rob graves, six of the bodies were kids.
i've been reading about how ben franklin was connected to both the hellfire club and the masons and how they found 10 dead bodies buried under his house, so since two of the bands playing use a lot of masonic imagery in their songs i thought a demonic ben franklin would be appropriat.
