Going along with the big stuff going on in the world, with the Globalist-influenced (if not planned) Kung Flu PanicFest, and increasing Globalist actions all over, we decided to take a Peak Stupidity field trip to the town of Elberton, Georgia to check out the 41 y/o Georgia Guidestones.
This 19 ft tall nearly 120 ton granite monument has inscriptions in 8 languages. We'll write more about the 10 admonishments(?) in another post, but I would say only 1 or 2 of the ten should in any way piss of a Libertarian or Conservative. Additionally, there is the famous number 1, associated by many with what's going on with mandatory vaccinations with an experimental virus:
Hmmmm ... Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. Says who? To whom?
Well who's this all written for? It was definitely made to last. 1979, when the specs were drawn up and the money paid, was still during the Cold War time. One will notice that English and Russian are together at the front of the stones facing the road. The languages of the 2 superpowers of the day would obviously have been considered the most important. I wonder it the idea was that this monument was a guide to the remnants of humanity after a nuclear war, with instructions to get it right next time! Maybe humans would be back to beating bones on the ground as in 2001, but before 2001, but hopefully still literate, so they could see the sun come through this one hole, say "hey, God is wise" and freaking evolve... I dunno ...
As for who these instructions were written by, a guy who called himself "R.C. Christian" arranged for their production with the Elberton Granite Finishing Company and paid well more than the job was worth, as Joe Fendley of the firm thought he was a nut and jacked up the price to discourage him. That price was OK, and the monument was built and set up on the highest point in Elbert County. This is in northern and far-eastern Georgia, well up-river (and lakes) from Augusta. Elberton is 15 miles west on Georgia Hwy 72* from the bridge across Richard B. Russell Lake (on the Savannah River) on the other side of which is Calhoun Falls, South Carolina, with the next biggest town, Abbeville**, SC another 13 miles east. Going from Elberton to the west 30 miles on the 72 will bring one to the city of Athens, Georgia. The monument is about 6 or 7 miles north of town on GA Hwy 77.
It was unveiled on March 22 of 1980, and since the time of Mr. "Christian"'s purchase, the 5 acres site has been deeded to the county. More geography here: It's not like this thing is on some big hill, for all to notice. The site is just a slight rise in this county of gently rolling hills. In that case, why build this thing in an obscure (still) portion of Georgia? Easy, that's where the granite is! The signs on the road into Elberton say "Granite Capital of the World". 120 tons of granite costs a pretty penny to ship, I'm guessing.*** Hey, sometimes these Globalists have to scrimp and save too, just like the rest of us future Guidestone followers.
It's just a nice small spot. Nobody had come from any farther than we had (that doesn't help, does it, as you know how cagey Peak Stupidity can be), and about 6 or 10 cars could park in the lot. Everybody there was friendly.
I'll write more about this field trip next week just for some fun posts on something different.
We've got to have some music for this end-o'-blog-week post. Seeing as the deal now is to feature music that goes along with the post, we have a Peak Stupidity favorite artist (see here, here, here, here, and here), the "other Gerry", with the smoothest male voice in modern pop music. It's Mr. Gerry Rafferty, from his 1979**** Night Owl album.
"You need direction. yeah, you need a name.
When you're standing in the crossroads every highway looks the same."
After a while you get to recognize the signs.
So if you get it wrong, you'll get it right next time."
Have a happy Sunday, readers!
* Conveniently that same designation, #72 is given to the South Carolina section of the same E-W road.
** Famous for being the real setting in the 30 y/o movie Sleeping with the Enemy, for the scenes in which Julia Roberts was supposed to be in Iowa.
*** Each big vertical rock must weigh ~ 21 tons, so each could still go on a regular flat-bed, I think. I wish I'd measured the width, but from my pictures, compared to their 16' 4" height, they can easily fit in a lane. How about it, Adam Smith?
**** Hey, right around the time these guidestones were being manufactured.
