I remember reading a while back about a stone that was unearthed with mysterious writings on it. Supposedly many experts analyzed it and came up with all sorts of explanations as to what the writings were, what language they were in, etc. Finally, the story goes, one person turned the rock on its side and lo, it was revealed that the writing was perfectly decipherable english, and the text was something like, “This is John Smith’s rock,” something like that.
Has anyone else heard this story? I’ve always been curious how, if the story is true, anyone could have missed the writing. Are there any photos or even drawings of this rock? Does the story even exist? Have I lost my mind?
Any help is appreciated.
