Georgia Guidestones – My Sad Goodbye
Many of you will recall my two previous posts about the Georgia Guidestones. The first was my introduction to the monument courtesy of Brad Meltzer’s Decoded. The second when I provided an update about a mysterious cube that appeared at the site. Sadly, I have a new update.
As I noted in my previous posts, there have been many instances of vandalism of the monument over the years. Mostly spray painted graffiti, with the occasional attempt to deface the slabs, but nothing dramatic. But now, much to the dismay of many (and, to be honest, the glee of others), the Georgia Guidestones – often called “America’s Stonehenge” – are no more. On July 5, 2022, about 4 a.m., an alleged explosive device destroyed one the of large slabs. The next day, with the help of a backhoe, the remaining slabs toppled over, and the guidestones fell into the dust of history.
The GBI is investigating, and I hope they find the perpetrator. Whether you believe the guidestones were part of a New World Order conspiracy, or if you believe they were benign suggestions for how to live in the world, the simple act of destruction diminishes the opportunity to discuss and debate. Yes, people will recall they once stood, and the internet will keep the “commandments” alive, but the physical monument is now gone. Like the loss of any physical example, it becomes easier to forget.
What are your thoughts on the end of the Georgia Guidestones? I was lucky enough to visit them twice, and I never experienced any odd feelings. I didn’t experience convergence with the ley lines they were alleged to lie upon, or any other strange event. The stones were an interesting topic to debate and speculate upon, to test out various theories on who RC Christian was, and other such things, but as a writer and a Georgian, I never considered them anything more than a curiosity. Just for reference, though, here is a link to the Brad Meltzer Decoded episode about the guidestones. Sadly, I fear they will fade away in the clamor of everyday life and become just another urban legend.
