This oddity was completely unknown to me; either that or
CRS is reaching new heights. Lengthy article with photos
and notional sketch of the monument's languages.
Interesting article, with pictures, about a monument I had never heard
of before. The article begins:
The strangest monument in America looms over a barren knoll in
northeastern Georgia. Five massive slabs of polished granite rise out of
the earth in a star pattern. The rocks are each 16 feet tall, with four
of them weighing more than 20 tons apiece. Together they support a
25,000-pound capstone. Approaching the edifice, it's hard not to think
immediately of England's Stonehenge or possibly the ominous monolith
from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Built in 1980, these pale gray rocks are
quietly awaiting the end of the world as we know it.
Various conspiracists have weighed in on the stones, and many religious
people don't like them.
