The Georgia Guidestones is a mysterious monument on which are carved ten
“commandments” for a “New Age of Reason”. The first commandment? Maintaining the
world population under 500 million people. Another sinister fact: the authors of what we
now call the American Stonehenge are still a “mystery”… except for those in the know. We
will look at the numerous features of this monument, its message calling for a New World
Order and explain how it is the work of an occult secret society.
The Georgia Guidestones is an enigmatic granite monument situated in Elbert County, Georgia.
Also known as the American Stonehenge, the gigantic structure is almost 20 feet high and is made
of six granite slabs, weighing in total 240,000 pounds. The most astonishing detail  of the
monument is however not its size but the message engraved into it: Ten rules for an “Age of
Reason”. These guides touch upon subjects that are associated with the “New World Order”,
including massive depopulation, a single world government, the introduction of a new type of
spirituality, etc. The authors of those rules have requested to remain totally anonymous and, until
now, their anonymity has been duly preserved. However, this mysterious group left a text
explaining the reasoning behind the rules, a text that was not discussed online before. With this
new information, the purpose behind the Guidestones become very clear, leaving little room for
hypotheses. The Guidestones describe the ideal world, as envisioned by occult Secret Societies.
The monument is therefore proof of an existing link between secret societies, the world elite and
the push for a New World Order.
Made of Pyramid blue granite, the Georgia Guidestones are meant to withstand the test of time
and to communicate knowledge on several levels: philosophically, politically, astronomically, etc.
It consists of four major stone blocks, which contain ten guides for living in eight languages:
English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian. A shorter message is
inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages’ scripts: Babylonian, Classical
Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs. It is important to note that those last four ancient
languages are of a great importance in the teachings of occult mystery schools, such as the
Freemasons and the Rosicrucians, organizations I will discuss later.

The four major stones are arranged in a giant “paddlewheel” configuration which are oriented to
the limits of the migration of the sun during the course of the year and also show the extreme
positions of the rising and setting of the sun in its 18.6 year cycle. The center stone has two
special features: first, the North Star is always visible through a special hole drilled from the
South to the North side of the center stone; second, another slot aligns with the positions of the
rising sun at the time of the summer and winter solstices and at the equinox.

At the base of the Guidestones lies an explanatory tablet listing some of the details of the
structure. It also mentions a time capsule buried underneath it. The contents of this time capsule
(if it exists) are a total mystery.
The explanatory tablet explains some of the features of
the monuments and its authors (more on them later).
The opening date of the time capsule has been left
Astronomical features are of a great importance in the design of the
Guidestones. In a relatively “new” nation such as the United States,
monuments that are aligned with celestial bodies are often the work of secret
societies, such as the Freemasons. Drawing their teachings from the Mystery
schools of Ancient Egypt, Greece or the Druidic Celts, they are known for
embedding into monuments some of their “sacred knowledge”.
The first “commandment” is particularly shocking, since it basically stipulates that 12 out of 13
people on Earth should not exist; basically, that would mean everybody in the world would
disappear except half of India. If today’s world population is 6.7 billion, then that is a 92.54%
surplus. To consider these figures is mind-boggling. But then, how many people survived in the
movie 2012? Not many. Who were they? The earth’s wealthiest people. Is this predictive

The last rule of the Guidestones, “Be not a cancer on the earth – leave room for nature – leave
room for nature” is particularly disturbing as it compares human life to cancer on earth. With this
state of mind, it is easy to rationalize the extinction of nearly all of the world’s population.

Massive depopulation is an admitted goal of the world’s elite and many important people have
openly called for it:

In 1988, Britain’s Prince Philip expressed the wish that, should he be reincarnated, he would want
to be “a deadly virus” that would reduce world population. More recently, Bill Gates said “The
world today has 6.8 billion people … that’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great
job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps
10 or 15 percent.” Along with tax-deductible donations of enormous amounts of money to help the
depopulation cause, “secret meetings” of the world’s elite have been taking place to discuss
those issues:
“Some of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their
wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population and speed up
improvements in health and education.

The philanthropists who attended a summit convened on the initiative of Bill Gates,
the Microsoft co-founder, discussed joining forces to overcome political and
religious obstacles to change.

Described as the Good Club by one insider it included David Rockefeller Jr, the
patriarch of America’s wealthiest dynasty, Warren Buffett and George Soros, the
financiers, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and the media moguls Ted
Turner and Oprah Winfrey.”  
The Sunday Times, May 24th 2009
The second rule (“Guide reproduction wisely – improving diversity and fitness”) basically calls for
the inference of lawmakers into the management of family units. If we read between the lines, it
requires to creation of laws structuring the number of children per family. Furthermore,
“improving diversity and fitness” can be obtained with “selective breeding” or the sterilization of
undesirable members of society. This used to be called “eugenics”, until it became politically
incorrect because of the Nazis.
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests
of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of
conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political
and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty,
and I am proud of it.”
                                   - David Rockefeller, “Memoirs of David Rockefeller” p.405
Most of the other rules of the Guidestones basically call for the creation of a world government,
ruled by an “enlightened few”, who would  regulate all aspects of human life, including faith,
social duties, economy, etc. This idea is far from new, as it has been entertained by Mystery
schools for centuries. Manly P. Hall wrote in 1917:
“When the mob governs, man is ruled by ignorance; when the church governs, he is
ruled by superstition; and when the state governs, he is ruled by fear. Before men
can live together in harmony and understanding, ignorance must be transmuted into
wisdom, superstition into an illumined faith, and fear into love. Despite statements to
the contrary, Masonry is a religion seeking to unite God and man by elevating its
initiates to that level of consciousness whereon they can behold with clarified vision
the workings of the Great Architect of the Universe. From age to age the vision of a
perfect civilization is preserved as the ideal for mankind. In the midst of that
civilization shall stand a mighty university wherein both the sacred and secular
sciences concerning the mysteries of life will be freely taught to all who will assume
the philosophic life. Here creed and dogma will have no place; the superficial will be
removed and only the essential be preserved. The world will be ruled by its most
illumined minds, and each will occupy the position for which he is most admirably
                                          – Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages
In “The Secret Destiny of America”, Hall explains the ancient dream of a world government, as
entertained by Secret Societies:
“World democracy was the secret dream of the great classical philosophers. Toward
the accomplishment of this greatest of all human ends they outlined programs of
education, religion, and social conduct directed to the ultimate achievement of a
practical and universal brotherhood. And in order to accomplish their purposes more
effectively, these ancient scholars bound themselves with certain mystic ties into a
broad confraternity. In Egypt, Greece, India, and China, the State Mysteries came into
existence. Orders of initiated priest-philosophers were formed as a sovereign body to
instruct, advise, and direct the rulers of the States.”
                                                                - Manly P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America
Since the monument’s erection on March 22, 1980, numerous authors and researchers have
attempted to interpret the rationale behind these ten guidelines. Do they truly consist of a
blueprint for a New World Order? Are they simply rules to apply in case of a major catastrophe?
The best place to get an accurate answer is to ask the authors of the rules themselves. However,
since they have chosen to remain anonymous, it is impossible to do so. They did, however, leave
an all-important statement, which has been overlooked by nearly all researchers of the
Guidestones. This astonishing text, which describes their motives in great detail, can only be
found in The Georgia Guidestone Guidebook, a pamphlet produced by the Granite Company,
which produced the monument. Right from the start, it is obvious that the authors of the
monument do seek the creation of a New World Order. This is not a “conspiracy theory” or
hypothesis. It is written in clear and unequivocal terms. So here is, directly from the pen of the
secret authors, the explanation of the 10 rules of the Guidestones (parts in bold have been
highlighted by myself, to emphasize noteworthy parts).
Cover of the Georgia
Guidestones Guidebook
“It is very probable that humanity now possesses the knowledge needed to establish an effective
world government. In some way that knowledge must he widely seeded in the consciousness of
all mankind. Very soon the hearts of our human family must be touched and warmed so we will
welcome a global rule of reason.

‘The group consciousness of our race is blind, perverse, and easily distracted by trivia when it
should be focused on fundamentals. We are entering a critical era. Population pressures will soon
create political and economic crisis throughout the world. These will make more difficult and at
the same time more needed the building of a rational world society.

“A first step will be to convince a doubting world that such a society is now possible. Let us keep
in view enduring appeals to the collective reason of humanity. Let us draw attention to the basic
problems. Let us establish proper priorities. We must order our home here on earth before we
reach for the stars.

“Human reason is now awakening to its strength. It is the most powerful agency yet released in
the unfolding of life on our planet. We must make humanity aware that acceptance of
compassionate, enlightened reason will let us control our destiny within the limits inherent in our

“It is difficult to seed wisdom in closed human minds. Cultural inertias are not easily overcome.
Unfolding world events and the sad record of our race dramatize the shortcomings of traditional
agencies in governing human affairs.
The approaching crisis may make mankind willing to accept
a system of world law which will stress the responsibility of individual nations in regulating
internal affairs, and which will assist them in the peaceful management of international frictions.

‘With such a system we could eliminate war, We could provide every person an opportunity to
seek a life of purpose and fulfillment.

“There are alternatives to Armageddon. They are attainable. But they will not happen without
coordinated efforts by millions of dedicated people in all nations of the earth.

“We, the sponsors of The Georgia Guidestones®, are a small group of Americans who wish to
focus attention on problems central to the present quandary of humanity. We have a simple
message for other human beings, now and in the future. We believe it contains self-evident
truths, and we intend no bias for a particular creed or philosophy. Yet our message is in some
areas controversial. We have chosen to remain anonymous in order to avoid debate and
contention which might confuse our meaning, and which might delay a considered review of our
thoughts. We believe that our precepts are sound. They must stand on their own merits.

“Stonehenge and other vestiges of ancient human thoughts arouse our curiosity but carry no
message for our guidance. To convey our ideas across time to other human beings, we erected a
monument — a cluster of graven stones. These silent stones will display our ideas now and when
we have gone. We hope that they will merit increasing acceptance and that through their silent
persistence they will hasten in a small degree the coming age of reason.


“We believe that each human being has purpose. Every one of us is a small but significant bit of
the infinite. The celestial alignments of the stones symbolize the need for humanity to be square
with External principles which are manifest in our own nature, and in the universe around us. We
must live in harmony with the infinite.

‘Four large stones in the central cluster are inscribed with ten precepts, each stone carrying the
same text in two languages. In the English version the message totals fewer than one hundred
words. The languages have been selected for their historical significance and for their impact on
people now living. Since there are three thousand living languages, not all could he chosen.

“We envision a later phase in the development of the Georgia Guidestones®. It is hoped that
other stones can be erected in outer circles to mark the migrations of the sun and perhaps
certain other celestial phenomena. These stones would carry our words in the languages of other
individuals who share our beliefs and will raise similar stones at international boundaries in the
languages of friendly neighbors. They would serve as reminders of the difficulties which all
humanity must face together, and would encourage mutual efforts to deal with them rationally and
with justice.
“We profess no divine inspiration beyond that which can be found in all human minds. Our
thoughts reflect our analysis of the problems confronting humanity in this dawning of the atomic
age. They outline in general terms certain basic steps which must be taken to establish for
humanity a benevolent and enduring equilibrium with the universe.

“Human beings are special creatures. We are shepherds for all earthly life. In this world, we play a
central role in an eternal struggle between good and evil–between the forces which build and
those which would destroy. The Infinite envelops all that exists, even struggle, conflict and
change, which may reflect turmoils in the very soul of God.

“We humans have been gifted with a small capacity to know and to act– for good or for evil. We
must strive to optimize our existence, not only for ourselves but for those who come after us. And
we must not be unmindful of the welfare of all other living things whose destinies have been
placed in our trust.

“We are the major agency through which good and evil qualities of the spirit become actors in our
world. Without us there is very little of love, mercy, or compassion. Yet we can also be agents of
hate, and cruelty and cold indifference. Only we can consciously work to improve this imperfect
world. It is not enough for us to merely drift with the current. The rational world of tomorrow lies
ever upstream.

“In 1980, as these stones were being raised, the most pressing world problem was the need to
control human numbers. In recent centuries technology and abundant fuels have made possible a
multiplication of humanity far beyond what is prudent or long sustainable. Now we can foresee the
impending exhaustion of those energy sources and the depletion of world reserves of many vital
raw materials.

“Controlling our reproduction is urgently needed. It will require major changes in our attitudes
and customs. Unfortunately, the inertia of human custom can be extreme. This is especially true
when those for whom custom is a dominant force are uninformed of the need for change.

“Nearly every nation is now overpopulated in terms of a perpetual balance with nature. We are
like a fleet of overcrowded lifeboats confronted with an approaching tempest. In the United States
of America we are seriously overtaxing our resources to maintain our present population in the
existing state of prosperity. We are destroying our farmland and we have grown dangerously
dependent upon external sources for oil, metals and other nonrenewable resources. Nations
such as Japan, Holland and Haiti are even more seriously overpopulated and, therefore, in
greater jeopardy.

“In these circumstances, reproduction is no longer exclusively a personal matter. Society must
have a voice and some power of direction in regulating this vital function. The wishes of human
couples are important, but not paramount. The interests of present society and the welfare of
future generations must be given increasing consideration as we develop mechanisms to bring
rational control to our childbearing.


“Irresponsible childbearing must be discouraged by legal and social pressures. Couples who
cannot provide a decent income and support for a child should not produce children to be a
burden for their neighbors. Bringing unneeded children into an overcrowded lifeboat is evil. It is
unjust to those children. It is harmful for the other occupants and all living things. Society should
not encourage or subsidize such behavior.

“Knowledge and techniques for regulating human reproduction are now in existence. Moral and
political leaders throughout the world have a grave responsibility to make this knowledge and
these techniques generally available.
This could be done with a fraction of the funds which the
world now devotes to military purpose. In the long run, diverting funds into this channel could do
more than anything else to reduce the tensions which lead to war.

“A diverse and prosperous world population in perpetual balance with global resources will be
the cornerstone for a rational world order. People of good will in all nations must work to
establish that balance.


“With the completion of the central cluster of The Georgia Guidestones our small sponsoring
group has disbanded. We leave the monument in the safekeeping of the people of Elbert County,

“If our inscribed words are dimmed by the wear of wind and sun and time, we ask that you will cut
them deeper. If the stones should fall, or if they be scattered by people of little understanding. we
ask that you will raise them up again.

‘We invite our fellow human beings in all nations to reflect on our simple message. When these
goals are some day sought by the generality of mankind, a rational world order can be achieved
for all.
So who was is this “small group of Americans who seek the Age of Reason”? Although their
identity is secret, they have left some telling clues to the initiates, unmistakably pointing towards
the occult nature of their group. For starters, the text above bares the unmistakable mark of
western occultism. We can find references to “As Above, So Below”
(The celestial alignments of
the stones symbolize the need for humanity to be square with External principles which are manifest
in our own nature, and in the universe around us)
and to duality (We are the major agency through
which good and evil qualities of the spirit become actors in our world. Without us there is very little of
love, mercy, or compassion. Yet we can also be agents of hate, and cruelty and cold indifference).
believe this text alone provides enough proof to conclude that the authors are either
Freemasons, Rosicrucians or another hermetic Secret Society. There are however even more
obvious clues pointing to the esoteric leanings of the authors, starting with R.C. Christian, the
mysterious man who ordered the monument.
R.C. Christian
The unveiling of the Georgia Guidestones. Could one of
these people be the mysterious R.C. Christian?
Here is the story of the ordering of the Guidestones as told by the official guidebook.

“What started out as a usual Friday afternoon in mid-summer has ended in the production and
erection of one of the world’s most unusual monuments, produced under the most unusual
conditions. Joe Fendley, president of Elbert Granite Finishing Company, Inc. in Elberton, Georgia,was
spending this Friday afternoon in June 1979 like he spends most Friday afternoons … studying his
weekly reports and generally closing up shop for a weekend … and then it all started.

A neatly dressed man walked into Fendley’s Tate Street office and said he wanted to buy a monument.
Since everyone else in the office was busy, Fendley decided to talk to the stranger himself and
explained that his company does not sell directly to the public, but only on a wholesale basis.

Not to be discouraged, the middle-aged man who identified himself only as Mr. Robert C. Christian,
said he wanted to know the cost of building a monument to the conservation of mankind and began
telling Fendley what type of monument he wanted. With this he outlined the size in metric

Fendley admitted that his first reaction to Mr. Christian was not very good, but after listening for about
20 minutes and learning the massive size of the monument he wished to purchase and have erected,
Fendley decided he should take this man seriously.”
                                                                                                                    – Ibid.
If the name R.C. Christian was simply a meaningless pseudonym, why would it engraved on to the
monument for posterity? Could the name be of any significance? Well, it is. R.C. Christian is a
clear reference to Christian Rosenkreuz whose English name is Christian Rose Cross, the
legendary founder of the Rosicrucian Order. Some might say that the resemblance between R.C.
Christian and Christian Rose Cross is the result of an odd coincidence. As we will see, it is
however only one of the MANY references to Rosicrucianism associated with the monument. This
is only one piece of the puzzle, but an important piece nonetheless.
The Rosicrucians
Seeking entry into the Rosicrucian mysteries.
Notice the candidate is showing the hand sign of
secrecy. Also notice the letters “RC”, as in R.C.
The Rosicrucians are known for  publishing three Manifestos, published at the beginning of the
17th century: Fama Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis, Confessio Fraternitatis and Chymical Wedding of
Christian Rosenkreutz.

These anonymous works, surrounded by mystery, cryptically introduced the general public to the
Rosicrucian philosophy, while announcing a great transformation of the political and intellectual
landscape of Europe. The Age of Enlightenment soon followed, accompanied with the fall of feudal
Monarchies. The Georgia Guidestones seem to accomplish the same functions as the Rosicrucian
manifestos, by calling for an important world transformations and maintaining a climate of mystery.
Does “Age of Reason” refer to Thomas Paine, a
prominent Rosicrucian?
There are numerous references to the concept of “Age of Reason” within the Guidestones. Could
they be a reference to the classic work of Thomas Paine entitled … Age of Reason?
The Age of Reason: Being an
Investigation of True and Fabulous
Theology, is a deistic treatise written by
eighteenth-century British radical and
American revolutionary Thomas Paine.
The work critiques institutionalized
religion and challenges the inerrancy of
the Bible. Its tenets advocate reason in
place of revelation, a viewpoint that is
obviously shared by the authors of the
It is a known fact that Thomas Paine was a leading member of the Rosicrucian Fraternity in
“The Rosicrucian Fraternity existed in America prior to the First American
Revolution. In 1774, the great Council of Three (the Fraternity’s ultimate
governing body) was composed of Benjamin Franklin, George Clymer and

– The Fraternitas Rosae Crucis,
In The Secret Destiny of America, Manly P. Hall describes Thomas Paine as an important crusader
for the march towards an ideal world government.
“Of Thomas Paine it has been said that he did more to win the independence of
the colonies with his pen than George Washington accomplished with his sword,
Only complete reorganization of government, religion, and education would bring
us even today to the perfectionist state Tom Paine envisioned”.
                                                   – Manly P. Hall, The Secret Destiny of America
This thinly veiled to Thomas Paine is another piece of the Rosicrucian puzzle, which leads me to
believe that the authors were either Freemasons (who have incorporated Rosicrucian teachings
into their degrees) or members of the Rosicrucian fraternity.

Furthermore, as if to make things more obvious, the Georgia Guidestone booklet mentions that
Joe H. Fendley Sr., the president of Elberton Granite, as well as many other people involved with
the building of the monument, were Masons. Was this the reason of the selection of these men by
the anonymous sponsors of the monuments?
“Fendley is also involved in fraternal activities. Raised a Master Mason in 1958, he
is now a member of Philomathea Masonic Lodge #25 in Elberton, is a York Rite and
Scottish Rite 32° Mason, and was admitted in the Yaarab Shrine Temple in Atlanta
in 1969. He was President of the Savannah Valley Shrine Club from 1972 through
1973. The Potentate of the Yaarah Shrine Temple awarded Fendley the “Divan
Degree of Distinction” in 1973, and appointed Ambassador in 1975.”
                                                         – The Georgia Guidestones Guidebook
The Georgia Guidestones are a modern day Rosicrucian manifesto calling for (or announcing) a
drastic change in the way the world is managed. The monument is of a great importance in the
understanding of the forces covertly shaping today and tomorrow’s world. It materializes into
stone the crucial link between secret societies, the world elite and the agenda for a New World
Order. The push for a world government, population control and environmentalism are issues
that are today discussed on a daily basis in current events. They were not in 1981, when the
Guidestones were erected. Can we say that great progress was made?

Many of the rules of the Guidestones do make sense for the preserving of Earth on a long-term
basis. But between the idealistic words of the Guidestone’s authors and the actual way these
policies would be applied on the masses – by power-hungry and greedy politicians – there is a
world of difference. Reading between the lines, the Guidestones require from the masses the
loss of many personal liberties and to submit to heightened governmental control on many social
issues … not to mention the death of 92.5% of the population…and probably not those of the
“elite”. Is the concept of a democracy “by and for the people”, as idealized by the Founding
Fathers a mere illusion, a temporary solution until the introduction of  socialist world
government? Why are the world’s citizens not being consulted in a democratic matter? I guess it
is easier for the elites to manufacture consent through mass medias. But maybe it won’t work on
