As to if that's really the case or not is unknown since we don't know who actually was behind this. Maybe someday we will, and possibly also find out if it is meant as a serious statement or something else.
My conspiracy theory: it's expensive viral marketing for some movie/tv-show/other-entertainment project that never materialized
Err... Okay. Not. IOW, I'm not at all sure what you are saying here. Do Rosicrusians have some "evil will towards mankind" because "that explanation doesn't work" or what?NeedAnswers wrote:Well they have a good idea of who it was, the guy had a name and that name has been "connected" to the Rosicrucians but they don't claim the guidestones are theirs and they don't claim to have any type of evil will towards mankind. So then either they're lying or that explanation doesn't work.

I do believe it is in fact known that the stones were commissioned by R.C. Christian, which is a quite direct allusion to the most probably legendary founder of the at-least-semilegendary original Rosicrusianism. Indeed it seems to have been always assumed a pseudonym but I'm not entirely sure on how thorough research this has been based on.NeedAnswers wrote:They do have an idea of a name for the guy who built or commissioned the guidestones to be built (they believe it to be a false name)
And it would be rather difficult to credit any such comments, be they denials or admittances. AFAIK there isn't any single group, sect or organization that can absolutely and without a contest claim to be the Rosicrusians, so you'll have to continue by specifying who is it you mean when using that term.The Rosicrucians do not claim that they built the guidestones.
What would be these popular undestandings that conflict with the ideas of enlightenment of humanity that has been part of the "Rosicrucian ethos" from the begining (as I understand)?Either the RSC are lying about their motives (the things written on the guidestones can be taken in one of only a few popular understandings) and that they built it, or the idea that a Rosicrucian built it and the group backed it's words is not the correct explanation for the guidestones
