I have a lot of interests. They include writing The Gemstone Chronicles fantasy adventure series, submarines, gemstones, gold prospecting, softball, quantum physics, and conspiracy theories, just to name just a few. As many of you recall, I did a post about the Georgia Guidestones. Now I have an update!
My first exposure to the Guidestones was an episode of Brad Meltzer’s show Decoded. After seeing the show, Lana and I visited the Guidestones near Elberton, GA. We took some interesting pictures. I had to do my research to discover more about the story behind the stones. I chronicles all of that in the earlier post. Now, I have an update and a mystery involving the Georgia Guidestones!
A little background on the Guidestones:
Let me refresh you on the background on the Guidestones. They were commissioned in 1979 by a man who called himself R.C. Christian (a pseudonym). He represented a group who wanted to leave set of “guidestones for an age of reason.” The monument was completed in 1980 and has been controversial ever since it opened. Why so controversial, you might ask?
Many conspiracy believers think that the monument lists the commandments for a New World Order. Others think that the first guideline advocates mass destruction of humanity since it dictates to maintain the Earth’s population at 500,000,000. Still others are concerned about the principle that states “Be not a cancer on the Earth – Leave room for Nature – Leave room for Nature.”
Here is a picture of the monument, followed by one of the English slab. These pictures were taken in 2013.
Now for the mystery! The story goes that the English language slab had a corner cut out during the fabrication of the monument. If you look closely at the picture above, you can see the notch in the upper right hand corner. Nothing mysterious about that, I guess, but there is a report that a cube of granite was placed in that notch by persons unknown. Engraved on the cube were the numbers “20” and “14.” On the other sides of the cube were other inscriptions, including “8”, “16”, “MM”, “JAM.” An Elberton official supposedly removed the cube and destroyed it. Here is a picture of the cube from youtube!
Of course, the insertion of the block with the inscription of 20 and 14, created a furor. Was R.C. Christian’s mysterious group back? By adding 2014, was the group informing the world that the commandments listed on the Guidestones were about to be implemented? Was this another group trying to capitalize on the notoriety of the Guidestones? Was the New World Order about to implement its agenda?
Although I don’t know any of the answers to the questions, the mystery deepens. I think the story of the Guidestones would make a great basis for a novel, so I might just have to work on that!
What do you think about the installation and removal of the cube? What about the Georgia Guidestones in general? Do you believe there is something sinister or Satanic about them? Are they just an innocent effort to remind people to care for the Earth? Leave me a message and let me know! Tell your friends about this post and have them stop by and leave a message!
