The remaining portion of the monoliths was deemed too dangerous to stand and the 230,000 pounds of granite were demolished.

There are plenty of outstanding questions, including who committed the crime. (No suspect has been arrested as of yet.) However, the demolition also left many wondering about that time capsule. “A slab on the ground at the structure, which appeared to be unfinished, led many to believe the capsule was ‘placed six feet below this spot on…’ that was ‘to be opened on…’ Neither the date of its placement nor the date it was meant to be opened was completed. That did not stop county officials from doing a quick search,” WAGA reported. Alas, even this turned out to be a dud. “Officials with the Elbert County Road Department brought in an excavator to dig down the required six feet. Using a tape measure to ensure accuracy, the only thing officials said they found when workers hit the six-foot mark was more dirt,” the outlet reported. Still, this didn’t stop online memelords from claiming that 1970s-tastic items were found in the capsule. This included, WAGA noted, “a signed issue of Playboy magazine featuring Burt Reynolds, a Peterbilt emblem, an 8-track of the ‘Saturday Night Fever’ soundtrack, and several dozen Quaaludes.” The bigger mystery, obviously, is who did this. According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, the district attorney announced that the individual who bombed the Guidestones faces a minimum of 20 years behind bars for destroying a public building with an explosive. “Detonating a massive explosive device capable of shattering a granite tablet in an area surrounded by residences is a criminal act which placed many people in peril of serious injury,” said District Attorney of the Northern Judicial Circuit Parks White. White added that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is pursuing many leads. Kandiss Taylor, for her part, has denied any involvement, and there’s no evidence linking her to the explosion — although it’s worth noting that, in the face of CCTV evidence to the contrary, Taylor also suggested God destroyed the Guidestones.

One suspects that, much like her preternatural obsession with the monument, the Deity should have much better things to do than laying waste to an outré monument and faking the video footage so no one knows He did it. But I digress. The lack of a time capsule is, in a way, emblematic of the bizarre and sad end of the Guidestones. Not only did it come through a dangerous criminal act, but the only potential silver lining — a capsule that would get us closer to understanding who built the monument and what its purpose was, providing at least some measure of closure — wasn’t even there. It’s hard to call this a “fitting” end, but “unsurprising” will do all too nicely. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
God is God all by Himself. He can do ANYTHING He wants to do. That includes striking down Satanic Guidestones.— Kandiss Taylor (@KandissTaylor) July 6, 2022
