Monumental Mysteries: The Georgia Guidestones

On a hill outside of the small town of Elberton, GA, is one of the nation’s most peculiar monuments – a collection of 6 stones, engraved with cryptic messages, in a dozen languages. What do they say? And what is their purpose? Tonight, July 17, 2012 at 9 PM, the Travel Channel seeks answers to the mysteries of the Georgia Guidestones in the premiere of a Mysteries at the Museum special.

The expert they turn to? Disinformation’s own Raymond Wiley, author of The Georgia Guidestones: America’s Most Mysterious Movement. In lieu of a clip from the show (sorry, they haven’t made one available yet), here’s Raymond at the Guidestones giving us the scoop on their purpose:

    I didn’t get to see the show on Travel channel last night, but I do have the book – it’s fascinating & very well researched. I definitely recommend it if you have any interest in the Guidestones & their strange history.

    have visited the Guidestones a couple of times, usually beered up. maybe that’s why i’m underwhelmed by them. ty cobb’s gravesite is close by and of much more interest…
