Response to Polybius (Reply #34)

35. It's been suggested that the Guidestones were intended as a post-apocalypse Ten Commandments...

...of sorts. They were erected in 1979-1980, which was arguably the peak of the Cold War. It's possible that whoever designed the monument believed that a future nuclear war would reduce the world population significantly below 500 million. So that number would be both a goal and a recommended limit, presumably because humanity would have much less technology available in the aftermath (farming, medicine, communications, etc.).
