Symbol on the Dollar Bill

Have you ever looked at the back of a 1 dollar bill and wondered what the pyramid symbol has to do with the United States and its history?
The government claims "The pyramid signifies strength and duration: The eye over it and the motto, Annuit Coeptis (meaning He, [Godj has favored our undertakings), allude to the many interventions of Providence in favor of the American cause. The Roman numerals below are the date of the Declaration of Independence. The words under it, Novus Ordo Seclorum (meaning a new order of the ages), signify the beginning of the new American era in 1776."
However, there are other interesting explanations about the Mason influence on the dollar bill. There is too much information to cut and paste, but you can find the info on the following pages.
