I began researching the Georgia Guidestones seven years ago while creating a weekly talk radio series for my college FM station. I was interested in mysterious and Fortean topics, and this enigmatic monument was just a few counties over from my home in quiet Northeastern Georgia. In the time that has followed, I have watched as this local mystery was morphed by the internet into a web of conspiracy theories, occult secret societies, and other strange beliefs which gain increasing prominence as the years have passed.
My new book, The Georgia Guidestones: America’s Most Mysterious Monument, is the first extensive study of this modern megalith. It follows the legend of the monument’s creator, R.C. Christian, a man whose true identity has never been discovered. Why did he build the Guidestones, and what is the meaning of its ten guidelines for of an “Age of Reason?” Is this monument part of a sinister plot to reduce the Earth’s population, or a relic of Cold War nuclear paranoia?
