    Could you expand on what it's like/what do you do in that environment?
    We have the business side, and then we have the social side (we call it harmony").

    We tell jokes, play songs, instruments, play cards, drink, go bowling etc

    Well, where I am from, it is over-representated by Protestants. But In Italy and Spain Roman Catholics.

    We take all religions, the only thing we require is that we believe in a "Supreme Being." If you don't believe in "a" god, then you can't join. Your god could be Allah, Buddha, pikachu, the cookie monster, doesn't matter. But atheists won't get in.
    so basically its like another religion? i thought that Freemasons are waiting for the messiah so do you believe he/she would be God? for so what happens when you join? does it make any difference to your life?

    No, it is not another religion. We are not waiting for a messiah. We are not waiting for the day of judgement.

    As to does it make a difference to my life? let us just say there have been times when situations turned out more favourably purely/primarily due to my membership.

    A family friend was in it. I asked him if I could join. The next day, took me to the temple for an interview, then a month later, got my 1st degree. As I said, its really not that big a deal joining, actually, in England they have masons at the campuses to try and get guys to join because they are so eager for young members
    What kind of questions did they ask you?

    To gauge people's genuine reactions, they may conceal it or be biased, if they knew my identity.
