"Guidestones" Vandalized

A monument dedicated to a one world order erected 30 years ago in Georgia has been vandalized. Graffiti denouncing a "New World Order" and some profanity were spray painted on the stone monument.

The Georgia Guidestones are a monument with the following message written in multiple 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 order to maintain a population of 500 million, as the stone calls for, 90% of the world's population would have to be eliminated, leading some to believe the stone is a threat to humanity by the secretive group that had the stones erected. The stones have an explanatory tablet nearby where etched in stone is the description the group gives it's self:

Just when the stones were vandalized was not made clear, but why seems apparent from the graffiti.


  1. This is a hoax done in photoshop. Sorry...

  2. Tony, I wonder if John (in his comment) means that the image of the stones themselves is a photoshopped image and the stones don’t actually exist, or if only the photo you showed of them vandalized with graffiti was photoshopped.

    If the stones exist, where are they located in GA? It would be interesting to learn what group placed them and who the members of the group were. If the translations you provided of the inscriptions on them are accurate, it seems that at least a part of them coincides with what I believe are the goals of today’s New World (or One World as it’s sometimes called) Order proponents. Some of the rest doesn’t.

  3. The guidestones are a Georgia landmark.

    "The Georgia Guidestones are located on the farm of Mildred and Wayne Mullenix on Georgia State Highway 77, 7.2 miles North of Elberton Georgia, 1.3 miles South of Hart-Elbert County Line, 7.8 miles South of Hartwell Georgia."-Northeast Georgia Mountain Travel Association

    There is a wikipedia article about them.

    You can also ride over and take a look at them, if you like.

    John, I see no evidence of a hoax regarding the vandalism of these stones. If the story hasn't been carried by other news outlets, it's not because the story isn't true.

  4. The Selma Intelligencer fact-checks and verifies every story published. The guidestones were vandalized about a month ago with 'red spray paint' and 'every surface was sprayed' according to Gary Jones, the publisher of the Elberton Star, a local Georgia newspaper closest the monument.
