The Georgia Guidestones is a monument in Elbert County, Georgia, USA constructed of six large granite slabs. A message comprising ten guides is inscribed on the structure in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages. The Guidestones have become infamous for their first commandment which calls to, “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” That had led some people to believe that the monument called for a global genocide of mankind. Other people believed the stones commandments were a message on how to rebuild the earth to the remnants of humanity who had survived a future apocalyptic event. Now no one will ever know for sure. But for how much longer will the stones stand?
1200 years after people. The makers of the Georgia Guidestones may have placed the monument in an area they thought could survive an apocalypse but the monument is now facing an enemy it has never known before: trees. The Guidestones are now in the middle of a dense forest. Moss grows over the granite slabs thus making them unreadable. Large tree roots have disturbed the Guidestones' foundation causing the stones to lean at an odd angle. Finally the granite slabs fall flat on the ground, they will soon be buried by forest humus.
