500 million, subs.

And everybody knows Hunter S. Thompson is responsible.

I thought everyone knew that the Guidestone was an Illuminati landmark to let us know they'll be decimating the population of useless eaters so that they can enjoy the planet without all these flea-bitten peasants messing up everything....

Comparing this to stonehenge is retarded.

I don't get it.  There's no mystery here.  It's a kook thing done for kook reasons with kook money.  I have a very hard time imagining something even less important or useful.

Yawn... seriously just now writing a story about this? Hey there's a statue in New York that looks like a woman....

Well, they are both made out of rocks. Likely by people who were stoned. To preserve information for a bunch of blockheads.

Was it a monument built by an ancient culture that tells about their religious practices? No? It was a statue commissioned by some random guy in the '70s with too much money? Yes, those two things are clearly identical.

Old news, but it is a good message. Hell, just reducing the population alone would do amazing things for the long term viability of our species.

Heck, even just aiming for 2 billion would be great. I know your balls/ovaries are telling you to breed but just one please, and every single problem we have would be that much smaller.

I know it's hard for many people (because they have to fight instinct and learn self control) but nobody in the developed world or even the semi-developed world (Mexico or Brazil or China) has any excuse for popping out a litter.

It may not be popular to say but more people = less of everything else. And I like the "everything else" too, from flowers and fireflies to elephants and whale sharks.

Maybe the first one was commissioned by some random guy with too much money. Ever think of that, smart guy?

/actually, that would be kind of amusing... a couple of thousand years from now archaeologists can't really find any information on the stones outside from what is carved on them and just assume we "worshiped" them.

Um, no, I don't think so. How do you tell people whose culture demands they have sons to be a man that they can have 1 kid only?

I'm no ecological alarmist but somehow I'm not exactly seeing a population of 500 billion unless we find a way to leave our solar system.

Well, they are both made out of rocks.


In order to be a henge those rocks would have to be within a circular area enclosed by a bank and ditch.

And the monument wouldn't even need to be made of "rocks"; Woodhenge, for example.

The NYT provided this link: http://www.thegeorgiaguidestones.com/Message.htm

I can't tell if it is an official site or whether it was set up by real or pretend crackpots, or whether it has been hijacked.

http://thegeorgiaguidestones.com/When.htm :

[the stones ] GIVE NO DATE

Why? The mystery is quite easy to solve:
The Georgia Guide Stones are incomplete. New stones are to be added at the site. That means the sponsors of the stone intend to have a ceremony after the climax event that levels the population of the human race to half a billion.
The climax event is going to take place soon.
The climax event is going to involve changes in the fixed heavens.
The new stones shall mark the earth's orientation to the new heavens.
The dates from the new calendar are to be carved in the stone at that time.
Hang on! It's going to be a wild ride ;-)

"This is the ultimate objective of The Neo-American Church: nothing less than the bombardment and annihilation of the planet Saturn. Upon the successful completion of the task, with the dispersal of the malefic energy of this gloomy orb into the cosmos (which, if too seriously affected, will be our next objective), the Millennium, or golden age of mankind, will commence without further ado, and it will be possible to dismantle not only the apparatus of the Church but all the instrumentalities of The Divine Will; to permit Peter Rabbit free access to the garden of Farmer Brown."

Yeah, a friend of mine sent something about it to me a while back. Though I've never heard him complain about the Masons. Usually it's the Bilderbergers and the Federal Reserve. Along with the Fiendish Fluoridators and chemtrails.
