The Georgia Guidestones

Near the peaceful community of Elberton, Georgia sits a monument surrounded by controversy. Since its construction over 20 years ago, the Georgia Guidestones have been a source of constant speculation and mystery. No one knows who is responsible for this 20-foot tall granite creation that dominates the rural Georgia landscape around it. Locals speak of a stranger, using the name “R.C. Christian,” who came to town in 1979, left money and blueprints for the monument in a local bank, and then quickly vanished. The good people of Elbert County (often called the “granite capital of the world”) followed the instructions and erected the monument as Mr. Christian had requested.

What is carved into the sides of the Georgia Guidestones, however, has sparked the most debate. The monument lists a set of 10 rules, written in eight languages, for humanity to follow. Some see the guides as a way to usher in an “Age of Reason” for modern society. Others, however, view the guides as a “Satanic 10 Commandments” that set the stage for an ominous New World Order.

Watch our exploration of what has been called the “American Stonehenge,” decide for yourself, and then leave us a comment…

    Really fascinating stuff, and a good mystery! I remembered hearing about this on Brian Dunning’s “Skeptoid” podcast a while back. He’s got some more information on the background of the monument.

      Thanks for the feedback, Mike. We agree that the story of the Georgia Guidestones is very interesting. The people we met in nearby Elberton, Georgia while we were shooting on location seem to take the whole thing in stride, for the most part. Most of them seem to enjoy the steady trickle of curious visitors who wander by to see the monument for themselves. Glad you enjoyed the episode!
