The Georgia Guidestones: The Sinister American Wonder
Every year, thousands of Americans travel the world in search of mysterious wonders. Whether it be the Pyramids in Egypt, the giant stone heads of Easter Island, or the fascinating construct that is the United Kingdom’s Stonehenge; people make personal pilgrimages just to stare and wonder: Where did that come from? They ask aloud and speculate: Who created this? Little do they know, a mystery just as interesting sits right in their backyard, because in the small county of Elbert, Georgia stands an epic granite structure that has been called “America’s Stonehenge”, and is possibly of “deep satanic origin”. A structure that is theorized to be tied to everyone from the Freemasons, to the Rosicrucians, to the New World Order. Whose influence has been marked halfway around the world, and is thought by many to be a harbinger of the apocalypse. Yet it’s a structure whose origins still remain shrouded in mystery despite being created thirty years ago. What is this structure? They are the “Georgia Guidestones”, and what little information we have, we are going to share with you in “The Georgia Guidestones: The Sinister American Wonder”.
Before we can delve into the mystery of the Guidestone’s origins, let us first understand exactly what the guidestones are. Erected in 1980, under aforementioned mysterious conditions, by the Elberton Granite Finishing Company, the Guidestones are located at the highest point in Elberton County and are technically owned by the County itself. With foundations included, the monument stands almost twenty feet tall, and is made up of four slabs surrounding one in the center, with a capstone placed on top of them. Another tablet lays set in the ground to the direct west of the main stucture.
The size and structure, and in fact almost everything about the guidestones seems to have some significance, but what’s written on them is the most important thing. Each face of the vertical stones contains a list of what appear to be guidelines for society, written in one of eight languages (English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian) with a smaller message, “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason” written on the sides of the capstone in four ancient languages (Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian Hieroglyphs). The guidelines enscribed on the main stones are:
The tablet that sits on the ground to the west contains information such as the date the structure was erected (March 22, 1980), it’s dimensions and weight, once again the message of, “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason”, and a list of “Astronomic Features” that reads: 1. Channel through stone indicates celestial pole. 2. Horizontal slot indicates annual travel of sun. 3. Sunbeam through capstone marks noontime throughout the year. Another inscription indicates plans for a time capsule that has not yet been planted. The ground layed tablet also includes the source of the guidestones greatest mysteries : Two inscriptions, one reading “Sponsors: A small group of Americans who seek the Age of Reason.”, and another reading “Author: R.C. Christian (a pseudonyn)” [sic].
Now that you know exactly what the guidestones are, when they were erected, and where they are, you can begin to ask yourself the all important “Who?” and “Why?”. Who is “R.C. Christian? Who are these Americans that seek an “Age of Reason”? Why did they really place the guidestones? Theories abound, and we will look into them, and give the the full story on the creation of this hidden mystery in part 2 of: The Georgia Guidestones: The Sinister American Wonder.
