The actual function of these stones is only known by its creator whom has chosen to remain anonymous.

The Georgia Guidestones stand on the highest point in Elbert County, Georgia USA. Situated in the town of Dewy Rose.

 The Georgia Guidestones consists of four granite megaliths set in a paddlewheel arrangement around a central stone, which is surmounted by a flat stone. The Guidestones measure 19 ¼ feet at its highest point and the stone group measures 17 1/3 feet in width. These megaliths are carved from Pyramid Blue Granite.   The monument was dedicated on March 22, 1980, and since has remained a source of mystery and intrigue to “Its numerous visitors and those who learn from it from afar.”

A ground marker in the form of a slab of granite a few feet from the Guidestones contains information about the monument and proclaims that a ‘Time Capsule’ is to be buried six feet under it.  But fails to say when the time capsule was to be placed there or when it is to be retrieved.

Carved on the granite slabs are ten guidelines providing cautionary guidance to humanity by using 12 different languages.

  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.

In addition to these conservation messages, the monument displays a number of astronomical features.

The Capstone contains a hole through which a sunbeam marks noontime throughout the year.

The Ground Marker, situated a couple of feet to the East of the Guidestones, offers a brief explantion of the Monument. It is under this slab of granite that a time capsule, was supposed to have been buried.

Commissioned by a man using the pseudonym of Mr. Christian who had selected Georgia because of it’s excellent granite and mild climate. The site is located in Elbert County on the farm of Mildred and Wayne Mullenix.

A very interesting article and pictures Belle. I have never heard of these Goergia Guidstones before i read this article. I wonder how long these have existed, and why they haven’t been talked about before. These are amazing, and deserve further research. Great article Belle. Well done friend.
