Georgia Guidestones and It's Mystery

Sunday me and two friends from home took a road trip. We got in my car and hit the interstate with only one destination in mind. Elberton, GA and the Georgia Guidestones. We learned of this location through 2012 research and Brad Meltzer's Decoded on the History Channel. This modern stone megalithic structure was built  in 1980 on a remote, country-side hill in Georgia. It is sometimes referred to as America's Stonehenge. In this post I will do my best to inform readers on the history of this monument and the theories of what they might mean.
In 1979 a man came from parts unknown to the small, country town of Elberton, GA. Elberton is know by the locals as the "Granite Capitol of The World." This man came to the Elberton Granite Co. and said he wanted to build a monument based on the theme of conservation. The name he gave was R.C. Christian. It did not take long however for the towns people to realize however that this was not his real name but a pseudonym. When asked about this he refused to give his real name. And since the monuments cost half a million dollars to build and he payed up front in cash the granite co. was more than happy to take his money with no question. He did however shed a small amount of light on who financed this project. He stated that he represented a small group of Americans who sought the "Age of Reason". He also said that his order was "In the know" and they felt that the endtimes were upon us and he wanted the survivors to have set guidelines to go by and rebuild civilization. These stones have what many have coined as a "New 10 Commandments". The stones that they are carved into are 16 feet tall and way 24,000 pounds EACH. These commandments are written the worlds 8 most commonly used languages, English, Spanish, Russian, Swahili, Hindi, Arabic, Hebrew, and Chinese. There are also inscriptions on the capstone of Egyptian Hieroglyphs, Babylonian Cuneiform, Ancient Greek, and Sanskrit. Those four languages are dead languages and there are no translations to what these inscriptions say. But this monument is not just this. The 4 pillars point to true north, south, east, and west. There is also a horozontial slot in the middle stone that the Sun shines through perfectly at sunrise and sunset everyday of the year. There is a slit in the capstone that the Sun shines through perfectly at high noon everyday of the year. And there is also an upward looking hole in the middle stone that you may see the North Star at any point during the night. So this monument is not just guidestones; it is also a compass, a clock, and a telescope. The new commandments read:
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 with resolving external disputes in an international court.
7.) Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8.) Balance personal rights with social duties.
9.) Prize truth, beauty, love, seek harmony with the infinite.
10.) Be not a cancer on the Earth, leave room for nature, leave room for nature(the stone repeats itself)
When the monument was completed in 1980 "Mr. Christian" disappeared, and has not been seen in Elberton since.

Many have speculated on what these stones mean for us and why they were placed where they were. Some fear the monument, stating that it calls for mass genocide and calling for a new world order. To me, this argument holds no water. While the 1st calls for maintaining humanity under 500,000,000 it makes no call for violent genocide or a New World Order. We already are allowing nations to rule internally while externally solving disputes in a world court(the U.N.). While the other commandments call for love and harmony. I take Mr. Christians word for it when he says that after some cataclysmic event, apocalypse if you will, these guidestones will be a guide to an "Age of Reason". And our planet is vastly overpopulated at 6.7 billion. With this gross over population it makes sense that Mother Earth is going to cleanse her self one day. We already see can see this in history in Noah's flood. Christianity is not the only culture with a flood story, all other ancient cultures all around the world from the Ancient Maya to Islam have a story of a great deluge. And there is archaeological evidence to support the claim. In recent years they have found multiple man-made stone structures 50 to 100 feet below the ocean. Climate change has happened before as well, we see it in the Ice Age. When it comes climate change I am in the middle. It is happening and we have scientific data to prove this, but we as humans are not the major cause of this because, as we look through history we learn, that this has happened before and there is no reason that it wouldn't again. The human race has been a huge "cancer on the Earth" since the coming of the industrial revolution. We have chopped down rain forests, polluted the oceans and rivers, and spewed tons of toxic chemicals into the atmosphere. All in the name of "progress". We have left barely any room for nature.
For us to understand what has happened in our past to better understand what may happen in the future we must not go in with any pre-conceived notions. An open-mind and a willingness to question the norm is essential. We must also understand that as humans, yes we are the top species on the planet, but there are things that happen that we have no control over. We are not as powerful and amazing as we think we are. Nature will always win out. This is why I believe that the guidestones were placed. Whatever "Know" this group was "In" they had this built so when (not if) the world as we know it ends; we will have guidelines to go by. And "The Age of Reason" will begin.
