A famous landmark in Georgia that some view as evil and others have dubbed “America’s Stonehenge” was crushed in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday in an assault that pulverized one of its four rock boards into rubble.
The site stones in Georgia sits close to Elberton and were damaged by an explosive device, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said. The Elbert County Emergency Management Agency said the blast was seen on camcorders not long after 4:00 a.m. surveillance footage shows the obliterated board on the ground. Authorities investigating the crime say they have “many leads”.
District Attorney Parks White with Northern Judicial Circuit took to Facebook saying the landmark could be viewed as a public structure, and the punishment for utilizing explosives to obliterate a public structure is over 15 years in jail without parole.
“Regardless of your feelings about the origin of the Guide Stones, their meaning, or the intention of the person who commissioned and erected them, they are a historical landmark, and this destructive act was an assault upon our community,” he said.
The monument had some rather questionable writings on it. For starters, it wasn’t anything small. It towered 16 feet high and had 10 commandments written on the stones in not one, not two, but eight different languages! One part read how to improve fitness and diversity while another part called for keeping the world population under control and not letting it grow to over 500 million. Some individuals who see this as guide stones to the new world order as the commandments seem to point to a way to come back from a sort of apocalyptic event and the writer seems to want to control how things will be.
In addition to the guides and tall rock formation, it also fills in as a sundial and galactic schedule. However, it’s the boards’ notice of genetic counseling, populace control, and a one-world government that has made them an objective of extreme-right conspiracy theorists, but the Bible does mention a one-world government and a one-world religion among other things, and some are comparable to what was written on this monument.

The landmark’s reputation took off with the ascent of the web, Kubas said, until it turned into a side-of-the-road vacation spot, with thousands visiting every year. The site got recharged attention during Georgia’s May 24 gubernatorial essential when third-place Republican competitor Kandiss Taylor guaranteed the Guidestones are satanic and made crushing them part of her foundation.
Other well-known characters have talked about them in past years including comedian John Oliver and Alex Jones.
Taylor took to social media Wednesday after the guide stones were obliterated and wrote: “God is God all by Himself. He can do ANYTHING He wants to do. That includes striking down Satanic Guidestones.”
Kubas and numerous others deciphered the stones as a manual for revamping society after the end of times and said: “It’s up to your interpretation as to how you want to view them.”
However, if you look at the Bible you know what they say. This isn’t the only time the stones have been damaged either. The landmark was also vandalized when it was splashed with paint back in 2008 and again in 2014. It makes you wonder if the same stones were there and had the commandments of God and were destroyed if the same attention would be called to them.
