Georgia Guidestones Blown Up: Why Was The Georgia Guidestones Monument Bombed?
Residents say they heard an explosion near the Georgia Guidestones, which has caused significant damage.
According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the pillars were damaged by an explosive device that was detonated by someone else.
The attack on the building is being investigated by the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Unknown perpetrators allegedly detonated an explosive device around 4 a.m., according to police. There was extensive damage to a large portion of the building, and a section of it was completely demolished.
The authorities have released CCTV footage showing a car near the monument just after the explosion.
There are six granite slabs on which an inscription in eight different languages has been carved. The Guidestones are sometimes referred to as America’s Stonehenge, even though they were built in 1980.
The inscriptions serve as stepping-stones in the quest for human progress.
On the six massive granite slabs that comprise the monument, a list of 10 instructions for the preservation of humanity in the event of an impending apocalypse was scrawled.
When the Guidestones were first set up in Elberton, Georgia in 1980, people marveled at their oddity of them. The GBI has confirmed that an explosive device was most likely responsible for the destruction of one of the slabs.
It’s hard to understand why anyone would want to blow up a seemingly harmless monument.
Why Was The Georgia Guidestones Monument Bombed?
Since their unveiling in 1980, conservatives have claimed that the stones are ‘demonic.’
After an explosion partially damaged the pillars, Republican senator Wendy Rogers said she is “glad” to see the authorities tearing them down, despite her description of the Guidestones as “evil” and “satanic”.
She Tweeted “The Georgia Guidestones are evil and Satanic. I am glad to see authorities tearing it down. We only support and worship the one true God, not an imposter and the Father of all lies.”
