An explosive device is suspected to have been used to cause part of the 19-foot-tall Georgia Guidestones granite monument in Elberton to crumble on Wednesday night, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI). “The preliminary information indicates that unknown individuals detonated an explosive device at around 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 6th,” the GBI said in a statement. “Elbert County Sheriff’s Office personnel responded to discover the explosion destroyed a large portion of the structure.”
The monument, often referred to as the “American Stonehenge,” is made up of several rock slabs that are astronomically aligned and inscribed in eight languages that depict messages that have prompted many conspiracy theories. One part calls for keeping the world population at 500 million or below, while another message calls people to “guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.”
The only people we ever hear talking about the Georgia Guidestones are those who have gone deep down the QAnon rabbit hole. Kandiss Taylor is now promising to tear them down as part of her campaign for governor. pic.twitter.com/5R6VX6m5S2

Right-wing conspiracy theorists have been obsessed for years with a set of giant stone tablets called the Georgia Guidestones. On Wednesday, someone blew them up with a bomb. https://t.co/och1ToGlNq

At 4 am this morning, one of the Georgia Guidestones collapsed and crumbled.
Reports are saying it was an earthquake, but be not deceived- this is a sign from God intervening on our behalf.

God is God all by Himself. He can do ANYTHING He wants to do. That includes striking down Satanic Guidestones.
