The Georgia Guidestones: 10 Masonic Commandments

Standing in the remote location of Elbert County, Georgia resides what is known as the American Stonehenge, or the Georgia Guidestones. Purposely placed in nature’s grasp, undisturbed by city life, this massive monument has an alarming message to convey to the world. Although the message is a beautiful ideal—tracing its roots back to the concept of a Utopia—it also entails sinister prospects for the future of humanity.

The message is considered as the new 10 commandments for an age governed by reason. They read as follows:

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.

The Precision of its Craft

To prove its message is universal, and a driving pursuit since the very beginning of civilization, 4 ancient languages are engraved on the capstone, including Babylonian Cuneiform, Sanskrit, Egyptian Hieroglyphics, and Classical Greek. The message is also translated in 8 modern languages, from English to Swahili, appearing on the 4 slabs of granite rock underneath.

There is also a highly intricate astrological significance to the Georgia Guidestones, which make it that much more ominous. There are precise notches that parallel the movement of the sun, from its solstices to its equinoxes, while its outer core marks the lunar-year cycle. There is even a stargazing hole, which locates the North Star, Polaris. And lastly, during the noon hour, the sun is positioned right at the center of the capstone, a highly symbolic occult design to say the least.

Who Built the Georgia Guidestones?

The grand unveiling of the Georgia Guidestones occurred on March 22, 1980, more than 30 years ago. Yet, very little awareness of it really circulated, until maybe 2005 when the environmental movement became such a hot topic. Throughout this time, though no one knows who actually commissioned its construction; all that is known is that a man by the name of R.C. Christian wanted to build it. “R.C.” is most likely short for “the Rose and Cross” of Rosicrucianism, which is simply the precursor to what is known as Freemasonry today. Not surprisingly a tablet not too far from the monument reads, “Let these be guidestones to an Age of Reason”, which echoes the writing of one Thomas Paine, a prominent 18th century Freemason.
