The Georgia Guide Stones

Georgia Guide Stones

What are they?

The Georgia Guide Stones are a monument sometimes dubbed “The American Stone Henge”.  Located just out of Elbert Country (approximately 90 miles east of Atlanta, and 9 miles north of the center of Elberton) coming in from Hartwell Highway connecting is “Guidestones Rd”, These stones have a total height of 5.87m and weight total of 107,840kg.  All of the (6 in total) stones are made of granite.  One slab stands in the centre while 4 slabs incircle it.

History (who, what, where)

In June 1979 an unknown man going by the pseudonym of R. C. Christian walked into the office of Elberton Granite Finishing Company enquiring about the cost to build a large monument to the conservation of humanity saying that he represents a small group of American’s who wish to remain anonymous.

The president of the company was skeptical of the stranger in his office so he sent him to the company’s banker Mr Wyatt Martin.  When speaking with My Martin, R. C. Christian explained that although his name is a pseudonym with symbolic meaning, he and his group were very serious about the conservation of the world and to herald the coming age of reason. Should there be a holocaust in the civilised world, the group wished the guide stones to be one of the most enduring things to help humanity start anew.  After an escrow account had been set up work was underway to construct the stones.

The contractors involved all came from different places and were assigned to different parts of construction having this project heavily compartmentalised.

There are 10 guidelines written on the guidestones in differn’t languages (languages are English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian).  The message in English reads:

Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.

Balance personal rights with social duties
Prize Truth – Beauty – Love – Seeking harmony with the infinate
Be not a cancer on the Earth

Interesting Facts

North Star Hole

There is a hole drilled to the centre stone so that the North star can be seen at any moment.

To one side of the guide stones there is an explanatory tablet much like a legend.

This is what is written on it:

    THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES
    CENTER CLUSTER ERECTED MARCH 22, 1980

Below this is written:

Controversy/ Reception

Vandalism

Many people have mixed feelings about the guidestones, some beleive that the stones were created by the New World Order, other’s beleive they were constructed (spawned if you will) by satanists, others condemn them as unholy,  and a message from the globalist bankers who have been conspiring this whole time to take extend power and control over the world through a one world government.

Who is R. C. Christian?

Ted Turner

Researcher Van Smith and author of Decoding The Georgia Guidestones concludes that Ted Turner (as seen above) is the most likely candidate for being R. C. Christian stating: “Our investigation into the identity of Robert C. Christian has uncovered highly persuasive yet circumstantial evidence linking Robert Edward “Ted” Turner to the very center of the Georgia Guide stones originators. This evidence is so strong that we believe Ted Turner probably was R.C. Christian. At the very least, Turner probably knows who R.C. Christian is.”
There is also a book written by R. C. Christian selling on amazon for $250.  I’m sure it can found on ‘other’ places.

Yoko Ono and others have praised the inscribed messages as “a stirring call to rational thinking”.

Some also believe The Brotherhood Of The Rosy Cross or The Rosicrucian Order are behind the Stones funding and intent, the Earth Charter also has similarities to the above two.
