Default Re: atheism & freemasonry - can they coexist?

supreme being could be referencing Aristotle's prime mover which cannot be disproved by science. It is a cod but not in the abrahamic way meaning it isn't a personal god.

Freemasonry is not a religion because you can belong to any religion and be a Mason. There is no dogma is the big thing I guess. That and Freemasonry is not marketed to anyone as alternative way to redemption. No one is saying that being a Mason is a way to get into an afterlife.

Does a "supreme being" not equal a "god"?

What else could a being do with "supreme-ness", other than be a god?

And believing this being existed: what could that be, but a religion?

If there's something vital I've missed, please inform me.
