Anti-Christ Guidestones?

georgia guidestonesI’ve decided to tackle some conspiracy theories on this site. I’ve always been a sucker for a good conspiracy theory; they fascinate me to no end.

The first conspiracy I’d like to write about are the Georgia Guidestones. Some people believe that they’re a version of the Anti-Christ Ten Commandments and herald the coming of Jesus’ arch-nemesis:

Based on my study of the New Age Movement, I have no doubt that the Georgia Guidestones are an expression of the basic philosophy of that movement. Since Satan is using that movement to herald the emergence of a universal False Messiah, I can only conclude that the Georgia Guidestones may well contain the ten commandments of the Anti-Christ.

Others believe the guidestones are the product of a shadow group that wants to usher in a New World Order:

Certainly the group that commissioned the Georgia Guidestones is one of many similar groups working together toward a New World Order, a new world economic system, and a new world spirituality. Behind those groups, however, are dark spiritual forces. Without understanding the nature of those dark forces it is impossible to understand the unfolding of world events.

The stones have been defaced several times by religious or political conspiracy buffs who believe the stones are the beginning of some sort of mass extinction of the human race. I’m not sure why they believe vandalism would change anything, but I don’t think rationality is a top priority of people who think they can just destroy property that doesn’t belong to them because they don’t like what it says.

Regardless, the stones are shrouded in mystery. Only two people know who commissioned the stones, and one of them is dead. The other has said they will take the secret to their grave. The person who had the stones built went by the fake name, R.C Christian:

The identity of the man who called himself “R.C. Christian” is a secret that Wyatt Martin, the banker who acted as his agent in Elberton, vows to take to his grave.

“He told me, ‘If you were to tell who put the money up for this, it wouldn’t be a mystery any more, and no one would come and read it.’ That had to be part of the attraction, to get people to come and read his 10 rules that he came up with,” Martin said.

Even the fake name has spawned conspiracy theories.

What does the ‘R’ and ‘C’ stand for? Why is the last name ‘Christian’?

Some people believe the R.C might stand for Roman Catholic, while others believe the stones were commissioned by the Rosicrucian Order.

For example:

It’s commonly thought that the man calling himself R.C. Christian, the same man directlyresponsible for the creation of the guidestones, did so in homage to Christian Rosenkruez. Rosenkruez was the founder of the mystical theology known as Rosicrucianism. Christian Rosenkruez was once known as “Frater C.R.C.”, so when you combine his two names, you get “R.C. Christian”. Furthermore, R.C. Christian is thought to be a high ranking Rosicrucian (a follower of The Order of the Rosy Cross, the secret society at the heart of Rosicrucianism). Rosicrucians originated in medieval Germany, and claim to have an understanding of the esoteric truths of nature, the universe, and the spirit world (which they believe have been concealed from the rest of us).

What could these stones say that has people so wigged out?

Well, inscribed on the stones are ten  guidelines or principles for humanity to live by, in eight different languages which include English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian:

  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 resolving external disputes in a world court.
  7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
  8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
  9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
  10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

The stones also feature:

The four outer stones are oriented to mark the limits of the 18.6 year lunar declination cycle. The center column features a hole through which the North Star can be seen regardless of time, as well as a slot that is aligned with the Sun’s solstices and equinoxes. A 7/8″ aperture in the capstone allows a ray of sun to pass through at noon each day, shining a beam on the center stone indicating the day of the year.

In the event of an apocalypse, these features would allow survivors to reproduce the calendar, clock and compass.

As for the principles, the first one understandably gets the most attention, since it calls on humanity to maintain a population of no more than 500 million. Some people argue that the stones are suggesting we kill off 9/10 of the current population, while others (rightfully in my opinion) point out that the stones were meant to guide survivors of an apocalypse. In that case, they’re not suggesting we kill off people but maintain that population once our civilization and population have recovered somewhat.

However, it is said that R.C Christian said many of the worlds problems could be attributed to overpopulation and that we needed to form some sort of world government to save us from ourselves.

Conspiracy theories aside, that does sound like a New World Order.

As you can see, most of the ‘commandments’ are fairly innocuous. Many of them make good sense.

The stones were erected on March 22, 1980, and below the date on the monument it says, Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason. 

It would seem that the ‘American Stonehenge’ will remain a mysterious set of stones – commissioned by an unknown person for an unknown purpose, perhaps backed by an unknown organization or…demon.

I very much doubt they herald the coming of the Anti-Christ or that they’re meant to usher in a New World Order. I don’t think that the stones were erected by a secret sect of a Luciferian order, either.

What I think is they were erected by a person or organization who thought a mass extinction was about to arrive, perhaps in the form of a nuclear war, since they were erected during the Cold War with the U.S.S.R, where many people feared nuclear annihilation. After all, how many bunkers were crafted during the 80’s by people who thought the end was imminent?

So why not a monument meant to kick-start a new civilization?

Or perhaps R.C Christian (who is rumored to be dead) went to his grave chuckling his ass off at all the controversy and superstitious conjecture his monument sparked.

Maybe he considered it money well spent for that reason alone.

  1. “Or perhaps R.C Christian (who is rumored to be dead) went to his grave chuckling his ass off at all the controversy and superstitious conjecture his monument sparked.”

    If I had monument building money that’s what I’d do. 🙂

  2. What a great idea. I recall this from the History channel show Decoded. They went down all the dark and sinister alleys of suspicion. I don’t remember if they cited the illuminati like christians cite Hitler, but it certainly is thought provoking.

  3. You know, these stones are mysterious for the same reason why the TV Show “Lost” was so mysterious: give someone half a story, and their imagination will provide the rest. As a huge Lostie, I approve of these stones, and I am jealous that I didn’t have the idea first.

    • Lost…what a disappointment that show turned out to be. So good at the beginning. Huge letdown later on.

      No doubt about having the idea first. It would be so hard to keep a secret like that though. But it seems it might have been worth it. That’s endless entertainment right there. I’d totally be scouring the web to see new conspiracy theories. What a hoot that would be!

  4. The brouhaha over these stones, what they mean, who commissioned them and why, and all of the speculation and conspiracy theories about the coming of the anti-Christ and/or a new world order demonstrate that we humans are just as superstitious today as we were thousands of years ago. Hey, we’ve come a long way, baby — NOT!

  5. Well, someone gave RC permission?
    Didn’t the nice lady at the local council ask him anything? Such as , ‘Where are you going to put such a big erection, Mister Christian?’

    If you read it left to write while listening to an Ozzy Ozbourne record spinning the right way at 78rpm. through a Marshall PA system a representative from the planet Vulcan will turn up and say,
    ‘Turning that bloody noise off!’
    Logical, when you think about it. Right?

  6. Cool. How come I’ve never heard of this place? The questions that pop out at me probably aren’t the same as everyone else’s. Like, why Russian and Swahili, but not French? French certainly is a more common language in Africa than Swahili, not to mention the rest of the globe, so it is more likely to survive. Any Swahili speakers in Georgia, not to mention the entire North American continent? Russian is probably a language that is likely to survive a disaster given that the Russians probably have built all kinds of tunnels to survive a nuclear holocaust, although they are also more likely to get shot at in a nuclear duel than France. Hebrew? Please. That’s obviously just to make it look cool and ancient. If the world does plunge into disaster, Israel is most certainly not going to survive. Either the nukes or the hordes of angry Muslims with take them down if their technology fails. Granted, there are Jewish people all around the globe, so I guess some of them will still be around to read it, but I still think it is for show.
