Georgia Guidestones Revealed
American Stonehenge Mystery
In June 1979, a small group of people constructed a large granite monument deep in the wilderness of Elbert County, Georgia, USA. The motivations of the said group, and how the project was financed remains unknown to this day. All we know is the group of Americans who constructed the American Stonehedge (also referred as The Georgia Guidestones) named themselves the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and had the mission statement of "seeking the age of reason." They were led by a man who nicknamed himself R.C Christian, the only proper name found inscriped on the monument's explanatory tablet.
The Georgia Guidestones is a large granite monument that stands approximately 6 meters tall and made up of six granite slabs weighing more than 110,000 kg. At the center of the superstructure, exists one slab with four slabs neatly surrounding it. The 6th slab, the explanatory tablet, is set in the ground a short distance to the west. This slab provides notes on the history of The Georgia Guidestones, along with some subtle and cryptic hints to their purpose.
The four outer stones are oriented to mark the limits of the 18.6 year lunar declination cycle. 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. Theories have been thrown around suggesting that such astrological arrangements indicate that the builders of American Stonehedge were a cult of sun worshipers.
Georgia Guidestones Inscription And Message
A message consisting of a set of ten guidelines or principles is engraved on the Georgia Guidestones in eight different languages, one language on each face of the four large upright stones. These languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian. The ten commandments read as follows:
- 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
Purpose Of The Georgia Guidestones
There exist many conspiracy theories on the purposes and philosophies behind the commandments. Religious scholars of the Judeo-Christian variety argue that these are essentially "reverse commandments" of Mosses Ten Commandments. The commandments of Satan designed to welcome the Antichrist.
Others argue a more balanced and atheistic approach to the Georgia Guidestones, stating that the following rules are from men who value reason above all else, even if it means utilizing sacrifices that are deemed necessary.
Many people, both religious and atheistic alike, argue the commandments are a cryptic step by step process to create a dictatorial world government under the banner of a single nation, religion, and language. This conspiracy theory is often referred to as The New World Order.
I take a unique perspective when I personally read the following commandments. I have the ability to take a deep breath, and take a step away from all the hysteria. As someone who has written a lot during his lifetime, has edited more manuscripts than I care to remember, and has conversed with a few published authors here and there, I have an uncanny ability to gauge what the author is really thinking behind the scenes as he or she is writing.
Looking at this manuscript, this R.C Christian doesn't come across as any different than a few writers I know personally. I'm afraid it comes with the territory, that if you understand your given language (and perhaps even know multiple languages) better than 99% of the population, a certain arrogance begins to creep up your skull. You're a master of communication and come across as closer to human perfection. You may even believe your writing holds some higher purpose of the supernatural ability: be it transcendence, unlocking the human brain, or being the son of God (sorry, had to rub this in), etc. Others will compliment you on how you're well spoken, which only feeds your narcissism. It stands to reason that if you believe you're closer to human perfection, than others must be less perfect, thus imperfect. If you see others as imperfect, then inevitably you may see them as disposable. You then view yourself on a path of purity, therefore others must be impure. This is how a eugenicist is self-manifested. . .
I believe people are reading too much into the Georgia Guidestones. I'm not saying this to downplay the messages inscribed on the stone hedges. Indeed, they come from a very talented writer, and indeed he may had values aligned with that of a New World Order type government. However, I doubt this monument, found essentially in the middle of nowhere, is the architect created by great powers of the world/globalization government/movement that we're slowly starting to see emerge today. This R.C Christian was most likely a talented author who let his talents, and his wealth, go to his head.
Georgia Guidestones Decoded
I will now attempt to decode the commandments of the Georgia Guidestones as I interpret them. Some of my interpretations can be found in abundance and in accordance on numerous Internet sites, others not so much. I'm looking at this from the perspective that R.C Christian, like many famous authors before him in history, developed a case of extreme narcissism. This perverted his mind to embrace eugenic concepts. I will start with the second commandment and work my way down to the ninth. I will then tackle the tenth and first commandments last.
Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
R.C Christian is without a doubt a gifted writer who has the ability to pull illusions on people. The key to unlocking the actual meaning behind his messages is to neither look at them on the surface nor delve into deep metaphoric interpretations. His clever use of riddles only serves to confuse people and or euphemize his messages. On the surface, the message comes across as commendable. The idea behind people choosing wisely when to have children, keeping an open mind toward diverse relationships, and doing so when you're in good health and fitness is admirable. However, what key word is missing? Choose. The commandment says reproduction must be guided wisely, not chosen by the individual, not decided by the individual, and not contemplated by the individual. Essentially, you must be guided on when and if to reproduce and with whom by a higher power.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
R.C Christian must always be taken literally to unlock his messages. Here, the key word is "a", meaning he wishes to unite humanity with a single language. Another key word is "living," meaning in the future he foresees this one language as the one living language, thus implying that all other languages will be dead.
Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
This one is a bit tricky. However, again, if we take his words literally, the message is easy enough to decode in plain English. When I talk to an artist, he will tell me it's his passion that keeps him going. When I speak to a religious man, he will tell me that it's his faith that keeps him going. When I talk to a cultured man, he will tell me that it's the proud traditions of his people that keep him going. Here, R.C Christian is essentially calling for complete ruler ship of art, religion and culture. However, he desires for this goal to be achieved through submissive means, rather than aggressive means through direct violence and force. Hence the term "tempered reason."
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
The only question that remains is who decides what laws are fair and what are "just courts"? R.C Christian answers the second question in the next commandment. What's important to note here is that J.R Christian cleverly omitted people and nations having the rights to formulate their own legal codes.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
Basically, a one world order court should trial all people, and all nations, across the world.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
While previous statements may have served to fool well meaning people of the left side in politics, this slogan aims to fool the right. In fact, many agree with the following statement, however the agreement is based off misinterpretation. That's because petty is an abused word in the English language. Petty is synonymous with the word small. Essentially R.C Christian is calling out for the removal of small municipal governments, along with their petty laws, along with what he sees as useless officials enforcing said laws. R.C Christian believes in installing a one large, centralized, world government. In simple words, R.C Christian is stating here that big government is good, while little government is bad.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
This is a euphemized statement implying that people no longer have individual liberties. Here, R.C Christian is essentially arguing that personal rights are not a right at all, but something that must be earned, bestowed upon by the state. He implies that personal rights are a give and take relationship. If for any reason society feels you're not living up to your obligations, then greater society reserves the right to do what they see fit with you. This is opening the flood gates to a eugenic system.
Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
On the surface, this statement sounds wonderful. However, what happens when we take the message literally? Truth, beauty and love can be found in seeking with the infinite. What exactly does this mean? Infinite is defined as "never ending." So just what are we dumping our emotional intelligence into as R.C Christian implies? Human immortality. R.C Christian believes our mortality is a sin and that we must narcissistically advance ourselves towards the goal of immortality. This is a dangerous proposition in my opinion, because I see immortality as essentially denying future generations the right to live.
Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature
R.C Christian's arrogance knows no bounds. Basically he's saying there's too many "worthless human eaters" in this world. I want them gone, so there will be more land left for myself, so I can go running around like a scene on Pocahontas. Oh by the way, let social Darwinism reign, as I'll promise the survivors immortality. Exactly how many survivors shall there be?
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Clearly R.C Christian’s motives here are to depopulate the Earth. R.C Christian is telling himself the ends justify the means. “I must orchestrate a massive genocide for the sake of infinite human life and purity.” So 85% of the people across the entire planet get to die, who decides, R.C Christian?
Debunking The Georgia Guidestones
These stones were created and written by a man so far removed from society with an ego that's truly airborne. This R.C Christian is no different than many of the Hollywood celebrities we see today, and I wouldn't be surprised if R.C Christian is a pen name used by what was a famous celebrity. In the mind of celebrities we're all "useless little people." Celebrities have used such narcissistic gimmicks since the dawn of time to feed their delusional little world. Today, they use reality TV shows, this guy used stone monuments. Different colors, but the same stripe. I doubt the Georgia Guidestones are an architect to the financial world order banking system we see today. It isn't within their tactics to build monuments in the middle of the wilderness. They often leave subtle clues to their intentions that are hidden in plain sight. My verdict is the stones are nothing more than the work done by an arrogant wealthy man, perhaps he was an artist or celebrity, with too much time on his hands.
As I drive down the mostly barren Nova Scotia highway, many poor starving artists have created stone artistry with cryptic meanings along the way. They do this by finding a large boulder sitting idly by the highway, and then subsequently start painting/carving the rock. The Georgia Guidestones are no different.
