The Georgia Guidestones

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

stumbled upon an unsolved mystery and thought I’d share it with you–the Georgia Guide Stones–America’s Stonehenge.

The Georgia Guidestones

The Georgia Guidestones

The story of the Georgia Guidestones is shrouded in mystery. It is said that in 1979 a well-dressed, articulate mystery man, nom de plume R.C. Christian, visited with Joe H. Fendley Sr., President of the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and inquired about a special project. This project was very specific and not the company’s usual type of project. It was a complicated undertaking requiring stone and astronomy experts. Not entirely comfortable with the idea of taking on such a project without knowing this mystery man’s real identity, it is said that Mr. Fendley sent R.C. Christian to the local bank, the Granite City Bank, to meet with its President, Mr. Wyatt C. Martin. This is where the story differs a bit from source to source. Some sources say the identity of Mr. R.C. Christian was revealed to Mr. Wyatt C. Martin. Some sources say that both Wyatt C. Martin and Joe H. Fendley Sr. have taken lie detector tests proving they do not know the true identity of R.C. Christian or the anonymous group of financial sponsors for the Georgia Guidestones project.

R.C. Christian wanted a granite monument consisting of five 16 foot tall granite slabs forming a star-like pattern to serve as a message to the world and future generations.

There were to be four tablet-shaped slabs each weighing approximately 42,437 pounds–each were to be six foot, six inches wide and one foot, seven inches thick. Each of these four slabs were “to be oriented to the limits of the migration of the moon during the course of a year.”1 At the center of each tablet edge is a small circle, each containing a letter representing the appropriate compass direction (N, S, E, W).2 In the center a granite column referred to as the center “Gnomen” stone was to have “an eye-level, oblique hole drilled from the south to the north side…so that the North Star is always visible, symbolizing constancy and orientation with the forces of nature.”3. This center stone was also supposed to have a slot cut in the middle “to form a window which aligns with the positions of the rising sun at the Summer and Winter Solstices and at the Equinox so that the noon sun shines to indicate noon on a curved line.”4 According to a flyer distributed at the Granite Museum in Elberton, Georgia:

"The capstone includes a calendar of sorts where sunlight beams 
through a 7/8in. hole at noon and shines on the south face of 
the center stone. As the sun makes its travel cycle, the spot 
beamed through the hole can tell the day of the year at noon 
each day. Allowances are made because of variations between 
standard time and sun time to set the beam of sunlight at an 
equation of time."

To top this monument off there was to be a gargantuan 25,000 pound 6 feet long, 6 inch wide, 1 foot 7 inch thick square granite capstone placed on top. On each of its 4 sides was to be a message “Let these be Guidestones to age of reason.”

The primary message carved into all eight sides of the four tablet-shaped slabs–in eight different languages: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian was one that seems all too reasonable to me. Here are the ten pieces of advice given by the mystery man and his small group of American supporters advocating for the Age of Reason:

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.

You can imagine how this has infuriated many feeble-minded people over the years. Afterall, with a world population dangerously encroaching on 7 billion5 — we’d have to shave off a cool 6.2 billion people from our consensus TODAY to maintain the 500,000,000 recommended for keeping a balance with nature. I agree with these wayward bunch of mystery folk–we need population control but they don’t stop there. They advocate “guid[ing] reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.” This is dangerously reminiscent of the views that fueled Hitler in the Nazi movement. It doesn’t quite reach that level of malevolence as it does not say eliminate people who are not fit or diverse but rather future people as it were.

If I get to put my vote in on who stays and who goes–I’d like two provisions: Non-smokers and an intelligence test required. =) I know, I know… bad gyrl. I am mostly kidding, mostly.

I agree with the idea of a World Court. This is not to be confused with a World Government (i.e. New World Order–rich frakkers taking over the entire world instead of just individual countries). It would be a great idea to set up a World Court where international disputes could be resolved without the biased interference of a heavily-armed country with its own agenda.

Who can’t agree with #7–Avoid petty laws and useless officials–this would be perfect, if feasible. Laws should have a review period. So should U.S. Supreme Court judges. Some laws are simply ridiculous and time reveals just how ridiculous (you can see some dumb laws here.)

All-in-all there is no way of really knowing who Mr. R.C. Christian and his band of rogue sponsors were (or are) but their message seems relevant still some 30 years later and I imagine it will remain relevant for many, many, many years to come.  There are several theories from the Elberton Granite Finishing Company making up this elaborate story to the town of Elberton wanting to attract tourists to a secret order of pagans to the New World Order—all plausible for anyone with imagination.

Whoever the real culprit–the message they chose is a solid one of great interest. These 10 guidelines are as useful, if not more, than the Ten Commandments from the bible.

“on the word of no one” — Horace

This has always been my philosophy—the philosophy of most thinkers. Like Socrates, I am the gadfly of a deeper truth. I was born with an innate sense of curiosity. You telling me something doesn’t necessarily make it true. I accept no authority of information as THE authority. I am compelled to investigate. And vice-versa my researching something you’ve told me doesn’t mean I believe it to be untrue—it is simply the manner in which I operate intellectually. I have always and will always think for myself.

Moreover, I believe others should do so as well. A little thinking could go a long way to getting us out of the current economic situation we are finding ourselves. Why are we allowing the so-called experts tell us we are in an economic depression that we cannot escape? Was it not other so-called experts who watched idly as we got into this mess through artificial financial prosperity, the hay day for bankers, Wall Street and middle America alike? Why should we accept their predictions, their explanation of reality? Why should we not think for ourselves and improve our situation?

This is exactly what I have been doing. Thinking about what we can do. Here are some of the things I believe will help us get back on track as a nation:

  1. Tax according to our current laws — you will pay more than the next guy, if they you make more as you should.
  2. Place a tariff on all imports from other countries to encourage new industry within our own country and discourage cheap, disposable crap flooding in from other countries while displacing local workers and exploiting foreign children in unsafe work conditions. This will also create extra revenue which we could put back into the economy.
  3. Upgrade the power grids to be more efficient. This will save a gob of money and energy sources while preparing us for the needs of the technology of tomorrow.
  4. Invest heavily in science, technology and alternative energy. We should be able to compete in all these areas. The Chinese said they want to be the leader in electric cars within a year—why should we not give them a run for their money? We already have excellent technology and the capability to do this.
  5. Raise the standard of living in our own country. We as a society are only as good as the lowest rungs within. If the poor feel as if their well-being matters as much as the wealthiest than they will be willing and anxious to help improve our society.
  6. Each of us take what we need and put the rest back into our economy. This means reasonable wages, solid benefits for employees—healthy  less profits for corporations, less waste and mindful consumption all around. No more keeping up with the Jones, no more million dollar wages.
  7. Implement as severe punishments for white collar crimes as for other crimes. When someone robs a mini-mart and takes $250—they go to prison for multiple years. Yet, someone who embezzles 100’s of thousands often escape jail time or get reduced sentences. They should pay according to the crime.
  8. No more bonuses for failing companies. Period. No more bailouts. No more excuses. And the government should put regulations harshly punishing such policies. And if a company is deemed ‘too big to fail’ — it should be split up into smaller companies with new management.
  9. Reduce the number of HB-1 Visas. I know this will be controversial but we can train locally. There are thousands of displaced out-of-work technologically savvy people—why not put them to work?
  10. Accept responsibility but refuse to be the donkey to which all blame is pinned. Insist the rest of the world do their part as well. For example, countries like India and China can work on effective birth control to reduce their excessive population. You cannot expect to properly provide for your citizens if you lack the resources and yet you continue to overpopulate and expect the world to help you. Countries must be willing to help themselves as well. And if two countries are perpetually at war and do not wish to stop being at war, as long as they are not harming other countries, we should not interfere.

These are just some of the things I think about. I think if we did these ten things we could go a long ways towards ending this economic recession and improving quality of life globally. Mostly, I wish to encourage everyone worldwide to think for themselves—to find answers nullius in verba.
