The Georgia Guidestones is a granite monument erected in 1980 in Elbert County, Georgia, in the United States. A set of 10 guidelines is inscribed on the monument in eight modern languages, and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages’ scripts: Babylonian, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs. The stones stand at the center of a park-like plot of land at the highest point in Elbert County, Georgia, located 45 minutes east of Athens, Georgia.
The monument stands at the center of the plot of land, oriented to face true north with the margin of error being only 2/100th of a degree. The stones are located on the east–west axis, with the granite slab facing true north. The stones are oriented so that on the day of the summer solstice, the rising sun shines on the center of the hole through the capstone.

Some people believe that the stones are a representation of a new age ideology, while others believe that they are a hoax or a conspiracy.
There have been many theories about the true purpose of the Georgia Guidestones. Some people believe that they are a message from a secret society, or that they are a warning about the dangers of overpopulation.
