The Georgia Guidestones

The Georgia GuidestonesKnown as the American Stonehenge, the origin of the Georgia Guidestones (erected March 22nd, 1980) in Elbert County, Georgia is equally mysterious. The three large granite stones contain ten cryptic guides inscribed in the eight most common languages – English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.

The guides are:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

A short message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The center column features a hole through which the North Star can be seen regardless of time, as well as a slot that is aligned with the Sun’s solstices and equinoxes. A 7/8″ aperture in the capstone allows a ray of sun to pass through at noon each day, shining a beam on the center stone indicating the day of the year.

The man who commissioned the guidestones, known only by the pseudonym R.C. Christian, is also credited as the author on the explanatory tablet. The sponsors are listed as “A small group of Americans who seek the Age of Reason.”

The tablet also says a time capsule is placed six feet below it, though the dates of placement and when it should be opened are left blank.

Many believe the guidestones were built by representatives of the secret society called the Rosicrucian Order (or Rosicrucians). Others claim they are of a deeply Satanic origin, and that R. C. Christian belongs to a secret Luciferian society involved with the New World Order. They are sometimes called the Ten Commandments of the Antichrist.
