The strangest monument in America looms over a barren knoll in northeastern Georgia. Five massive slabs of polished granite rise out of the earth in a star pattern. The rocks are each 16 feet tall, with four of them weighing more than 20 tons apiece. Together they support a 25,000-pound capstone. Approaching the edifice, it’s hard not to think immediately of England’s Stonehenge or possibly the ominous monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Built in 1980, these pale gray rocks are quietly awaiting the end of the world as we know it.

Called the Georgia Guidestones, the monument is a mystery

It doesn’t really remind me of Stonehenge at all.  More like a rocket launch platform.

Looks nothing like Stonehenge or any other megalithic site. Just looks like a couple of big slabs.

I read the Wiki page on it. Wtf’s wrong with people, saying it’s “The tablets of the Antichrist” and satanic in origin? All it seems to say is how to keep the earth going longer and to prize things like love, beauty, and harmony.

Oh yeah, I forgot how much Lucifer loves love, beauty, and harmony. rolleyes

Because they’d rather have a mural of God smiting Sodom and Gomorrah.

It does sound kind of cool the way the guy did it.  Spend all that money on it then turn it over to the county.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

Agreed. Although things did go sour when some nuts graffitied it. rolleyes

Personally, I like Carhenge, in Alliance, Nebraska.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?
