Ran into this on the History entertainment channel on another one of those end of the world, Illuminati, New World Order conspiracy info-mercials for fear.
Had the show on as background noise as I cruised the net.
Apparently some eccentric had these twenty foot high stones erected in 1980 in rural Georgia pushing a green agenda for the future – either in a straight flow time line thing or as a historic guidepost for future generations to discover after a new dark age or collapse of civilisation thing. Whatever.
They, the stones, have been vandalized in recent times by some apparent fundamentalists who have labeled this secular future Rosetta Stone like object as satanic. Mostly graffiti is in spray can paint with inverted pentagrams in circles or “Jesus will prevail” and of course “Obama iz a Muslim!” BS etc.. Whatever again.
A message consisting of a set of ten guidelines or principles is engraved on the Georgia Guidestones in eight different languages, one language on each face of the four large upright stones. Moving clockwise around the structure from due north, these languages are: English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian.
