A mysterious monument in rural Georgia that some had dubbed "America's Stonehenge" but had been labeled "satanic" by some conservative Christians was destroyed by an explosion early Wednesday (July 6th). One of four granite panels at the Georgia Guidestones monument near Elberton was blown up by the explosion, and the other three were taken down later for safety reasons. The monument was built in 1980 from local granite after being commissioned by an unknown person or group under the pseudonym R.C. Christian. That's led to mystery and conspiracy theories about it. The 16-foot-high panels had a 10-part message in eight different languages with guidance for living in an "age of reason." One part called for keeping the world population at 500 million people or less, while another called to "guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity." It also acts as a sundial and astronomical calendar.
