One would basically be arguing for a sort of anti-apostolic succession; anything God can do, Satan can do just as well. The dualism is irritating.

If the argument has any merit, I would hardly say one is as good as the other. 

It's opposite kingdoms-one is of this world, the other is not.

The FACT remains though, the Grand Lodge was founded in 1717, and the earlier Lodges by Sir Francis Bacon and his countrymen in Queen Elizabeth's court.

The claims that they built the pyramids, they built Solomon's Temple, they were the Knights Templar are all a load of BS. 

At best a few of the founders of Freemasonry among Sir Francis Bacon's friends were probably occultists descended from Templars and incorporated some of the structure into the Lodge membership.

Lucifer always makes anti-Churches, but to say they survive with all of their blasphemies intact throughout the ages is a joke.  Sure, some of them get passed on to successor anti-Churches, but not enough to say it's the exact same organization.

At best Freemasonry's earliest incarnation took inspiration from Kabbala, Rosicrucianism, and other post-gnostic cults, gnosticism being founded, in part, by Simon Magus during Christ's time.

Influences yes, but certainly not "ancient" Freemasonry.
