The Ten Principles of the Georgia Guidestones, America's Strangest Monument

Are you familiar with the Georgia Guidestones? When someone first mentioned it to me I thought it both interesting and strange.

Located 90 miles East of Atlanta, the monument consists of a set of 10 guidelines inscribed on a stone manmade structure in eight modern languages. At the top there's also a short message inscribed in four ancient language scripts. Some people are calling it an "American Stonehenge." The slabs and capstone stand just over 19 feet tall.

The creators of this monument have chosen to remain anonymous and the man who conveyed the instructions to the Eberton Granite Finishing Company 19 miles away used a pseudonym. Obviously it cost a pretty penny to produce and install. Purportedly the group behind this had spent twenty years in planning.

The inscriptions are in the following languages:
English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Traditional Chinese, and Russian.

The ten commandments inscribed there are as follows:

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 lot of it sounds "nice" but one gets a little concerned about the first two, the first especially. I'm curious how they propose to reduce the earth's population by seven billion in order to fulfill their concept of balance with nature.

Does the second statement refer to a return to eugenicists helping create a more perfect race? Is it Brave New World inspired, as if Huxley's book were a manual, instead of a red flag?

Heres what WIRED wrote about the Guidestones:
The Georgia Guidestones may be the most enigmatic monument in the US: huge slabs of granite, inscribed with directions for rebuilding civilization after the apocalypse. Only one man knows who created them—and he's not talking.

The strangest monument in America looms over a barren knoll in northeastern Georgia. Five massive slabs of polished granite rise out of the earth in a star pattern. The rocks are each 16 feet tall, with four of them weighing more than 20 tons apiece. Together they support a 25,000-pound capstone. Approaching the edifice, it's hard not to think immediately of England's Stonehenge or possibly the ominous monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Built in 1980, these pale gray rocks are quietly awaiting the end of the world as we know it.

You can find the rest of that story HERE.


In addition to the set of instructions on the stones, there were some very precise astro-physical instructions as regards the layout of the stones. You can read about that here at the Smithsonian magazine website.


A site called Atlas Obscura features the guidestones on this page. It highlights a few of the unique features of the stones in this paragraph:

The guidestones also serve as an astronomical calendar, and every day at noon the sun shines through a narrow hole in the structure and illuminates the day’s date on an engraving. The names of four ancient languages are inscribed on the sides near the top: Babylonian cuneiform, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian Hieroglyphics.

Someone spent some serious time and money creating this thing. It's not hard to see how something of this nature could provoke some serious conspiracy theorizing. Now all we need is are receipts showing who paid for it. Any guesses?

It is little known that it is incomplete. There were supposed to be eight more stones surrounding the center in a lunar calender. This was supposed to be done by another individual. J.R. Christian was the surname for the individual who financed the build.

Thank you, anon, for the additional insight on this mystery.

R C Christian was a pseudonym and not the man’s real name.

It is a new List of Commandments / Orders for a New World Order organised and paid for by a Satanic sect within the FREEMASONS ! RC Christian was a Freemason. It has been planned for a long time and is already in progress. All Governments world wide are involved. In order to reach the 500,000,000 number 7 billion people will die from the Covid 19 "vaccination". The new Age of Reason / new world order has begun. Wakeup

The Guide Stones List the Commandments / Orders for a New World Order! It has been planned for a long time and it's already in progress. All Governments and others world wide are involved. In order to reach the 500,000,000 number 7 billion people will die from the Covid 19 "virus". Only the strong shall survive. Weak and weak minded shall perish. People getting sick and dying did not get the vaccine. The New world order has begun.

I agree, it's all a prelude to the birth of the New World Order and the death of humanity.

Thanks for this.

I'm saddened by the prevailing fears in the comments. How terrible it must be to stay vigilant against such unreasonable conspiracy theories. The stones are a treasure, if you ask me.

Should we survive what's already set to back-fire on us, it would be prudent, responsible, to consider what we should have learned from our mistakes.
Too many humans with zero potential to contribute via their inclinations makes waste of human potential. Law that supports individuals with justice, and continuing to avail our species of Medicine that matters to our future as a species require reason, rather than reaction.

I can close my eyes and consider what an enchanting, exciting garden Creation is. Seeing Humanity reborn with appreciation of our inheritance fills me with wonder.
