The Mysterious Georgia Guidestones
The Georgia Guidestones have been labeled as one of the most mysterious monuments in the world. The monument was unveiled on March 22, 1980 in Elberton, Georgia and was created by a man using the false name R.C. Christian. No one knows who this man actually was, why he built the Georgia Guidestones, or how the project was funded. No one is really sure what the guidelines inscribed on the stones are actually referring to either, although there are certainly many theories. They seem to be guidelines for how to create a better world following an apocalyptic event. What might bring about this event seems to be what most people are concerned about.
The Georgia Guidestones are constructed out of granite with four tall, rectangular slabs making up the outside of the monument, a central pillar with an angled hole that is referred to as a “mail slot” and is used for observing the equinox and solstices through the hole on those days, a capstone that contains a hole meant for tracking the movement of the north star and a message that is written in 4 different languages (Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs), and a flagstone that sits separate from the rest of the monument, which has engraved on it the astronomical alignments on the Guidestones, it tells you what the different languages are on the stones, it translates the message inscribed on the capstone: “Let These Be Guidestones To An Age Of Reason”, it gives the size dimensions of the monument, and it tells of a time capsule that was meant to have been placed below it by the people of Elberton, but that never happened, or at least not that we know of as the dates for when the capsule would’ve been buried and when it was meant to be exhumed were never recorded on the flagstone. There are 10 guidelines, printed in the 8 most popular languages (English, Spanish, Swahili, Sanskrit, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian) engraved into each face of the outer pillars of the Georgia Guidestones. They read as such:
- Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
- Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
- Unite humanity with a living new language.
- Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
- Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
- Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
- Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
- Balance personal rights with social duties.
- Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
- Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.
It seems that it is the first guideline on the list that bothers people the most. Many believe this is representative of what is known as the New World Order or NWO. Many people believe that the first guideline suggests the depopulation of the world by what they refer to as the “Elite” and many also believe that the guidelines are The 10 Commandments of the Antichrist. The Georgia Guidestones were vandalized shortly after Barack Obama was elected President. The stones were tagged with phrases such as “Death to the New World Order”, “No One World government” and, making reference to the first guideline, “The Elite want 80% of us dead”. There is still visible damage to the English side of the Georgia Guidestones from when a bucket of epoxy was thrown onto it. There are some who believe R.C. Christian was part of a secret society called the Rosicrucians, which were said to be the forerunners of Freemasonry, an organization said to be linked to the birth of the Illuminati, a secret Elitist group allegedly attempting to bring about the New World Order. We do find it odd that designer’s pseudonym of choice – R.C. Christian – so closely resembles the word “rosicrucian”, hmmm….
There are also many people who believe that the Georgia Guidestones are there to show us how we should be living our lives, in peace and harmony with nature. They believe that the first guideline, which refers to the 500,000,000 max population, is simply telling us that that is what would be the ideal population to maintain a balance with nature. As some people have pointed out, simply having more people using birth control, thus producing less children, would eventually reduce the population of the world naturally. According to these people, there is nothing sinister about the Guidestones and they present a good message on how we ought to be living our lives.
In 2014, a corner block that was inscribed “2014” was added to a corner in between the English and Spanish slabs. Not long after the block was added, it was removed and destroyed. Upon observing the block, people found that the other faces had been inscribed as well with 16, 8, MM and JAM. It is still unknown who added the block and who removed and destroyed it, and it is still a mystery as to what the numbers and letters etched into the block actually mean.
What are your thoughts on the Georgia Guidestones? Are they meant to be benevolent or do you think they are something sinister? Or maybe you don’t think they have any real purpose or meaning to them at all? Please let us know in the comments section below.
