The Georgia Guidestones: Waiting for the End of the World

R. C. Christian is dead! The Georgia Guidestones are one of the most interesting mysteries I have ever come across. After all my interest in conspiracy theories and the occult side of things, I do not believe that there is anything wrong with this monument.

It is sad to hear that R. C. Christian has died and that people want to limit his free speech by defacing this work of great craftsmanship. From CNN:

In the beginning, there was the stone.The blue-gray vein of granite that courses through northeastern Georgia spawned jobs in the quarries and finishing sheds of Elberton, where generations of stonecutters have turned slabs of rock the size of refrigerators into statues, tombstones and tile.

And one day, it brought a visitor who gifted the town with a landmark that leaves visitors scratching their heads decades later.

The nearly 20-foot high series of granite slabs known as the Georgia Guidestones are inscribed with a series of admonitions for a future “Age of Reason.” Billed as “America’s Stonehenge,” it’s an astronomically complex, 120-ton relic of Cold War fears, built to instruct survivors of an Armageddon that the mystery man feared was all too near.

The identity of the man who called himself “R.C. Christian” is a secret that Wyatt Martin, the banker who acted as his agent in Elberton, vows to take to his grave.

“He told me, ‘If you were to tell who put the money up for this, it wouldn’t be a mystery any more, and no one would come and read it.’ That had to be part of the attraction, to get people to come and read his 10 rules that he came up with,” Martin said.

    All of them sensible rules. I've never understood why people get so upset at the prospect of maintaining a population of half a billion. It makes perfect sense. We whine about global warming, peak oil, the rape of natural resources, etc, but we never address over-population which is primarily the main contributing factor for all these fuck-ups to begin with.

      The stones aren't about killing people till you're under half a billion. That's the reason they get worked up, because that's what they think it is. They don't understand that the stones are there for an “apocolypse” type scenario where the population is already tiny and it's advice for how to rebuilt civilization in a good way supposedly.

    It's kinda beautiful, and I'd love to be there when future generations who know as little about it's manufacture, as we know about who made Stonehenge, try to figure out what the hell is was for.
