So one of the weirder things in the state of Georgia, as if we could get any weirder, is a thing called the Georgia Guidestones. No one is really sure who put up the money to construct them but they are in the middle of absolute nowhere Georgia. Now when someone says they can be seen from a highway, I expect it to not be in the middle of nowhere. (I personally strongly disagree about what the state of Georgia calls a “highway.”)
The partner wanted to eventually see this but he never got around to it. This is what I was heading towards when I was distracted by the Laurel and Hardy museum when I was coming back from Augusta. I did eventually get back on track and I was able to find them although trying to get a GPS address for them was a bit of a pain, but it is 1065 Guidestones Rd., Nuberg, GA.
The guidestones are about 19 foot and total there are the guidelines in 8 languages (English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian) and there are other things in 4 others. These are what the guidestones say:
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.
Here is a youtube video about them as I cannot put up the good photo I took of them.
So are these rules good to live by? What do you think? Which one is going to be the hardest to do? Personally I vote 7!
