Where are you writing this? Google Docs or Word?

Word.

Ah, okay. The reason I ask is because I often help with peer editing via Google Docs. We can do it here though. "Mainly secularism, and rational thought" -> Mainly secularism and rational thought Comma is unnecessary. 'decided to form an organization' and 'formed a secret group of his own' This is repetitive. Capitalize 'Church' Conflicting thoughts of "the Illuminati was stopped" and "the Illuminati continues to push on." I would suggest hindered, or impeded.

For the last one, the "push on", what do I do?

Shadow:

You say that they were stopped yet in the following paragraph you note that they are pushing on. These thoughts conflict with each other. Change stopped to them being 'hindered' or 'impeded.'

Stopped makes it sound like they were put to rest, or could not move on.
