They used to, but in the 1700s or so, and they were nothing like what you would call "The Illuminati".http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illuminati

I know you think you understand what you thought I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you understood is not necessarily what I meant.

The word "Illuminati" itself stems from the idea that they're the select group who've been 'enlightened' to the truth. Oddly enough, there are a lot of links in the English language between brightness and intelligence (or knowledge). This ties into the Promethean myth of the rebel figure trying to steal fire (light, ie, knowledge) from the gods and the myth of Lucifer, "the bringer of light", wanting to take the place of the Abrahamic god. They both presumably come from an even older myth.
Anyhow, to say that one is illuminated is to say that he knows the truth. So it's really just one term out of many to describe those at the top who may know a lot more about the way the world works than we, the masses, do. I really doubt that they would actually refer to themselves as The Illuminati (©), and that it's more of a descriptive term than anything.
