There is a small rock in a museum in New Hampshire that scholars can’t seem to find a point of origin for. The carvings on it are really intricate and is said to be quite old. What it is and where it came from? No one knows. *Add spooky sound effects here.*

I wonder if someone made it as a hoax.

Hmmmmm…..

If the origin is indeed 1872 and was found the way it is thought in the article, it is pretty interesting!

The fact no one can decipher the symbols is not too surprising.  Remember Voyagar One placque with the line drawings of a man and a woman, and lots of symbols to show where our sun is in the Milky Way, and our relation to it, and our carbon-based life, etc?  It was sent to dozens of world-wide scientists and scholars for their interpretation (to see if the symbols were very clear or not) and no one could decipher much of anything!

So the symbolism, who knows?  Maybe hoax, maybe a message from the stars?  Maybe, in code, it is the long-sought ‘World’s Best Potato-Salad’ recipe.

Of course, one would think if it was a message from the stars, they would have sent several hundred, to help make sure at least one or two were found and ultimately delivered to the hands of a scholar to interpret it.  And then send addendas.

...and is said to be quite old.

As is every ‘mysterious’ artifact ever made… er, uncovered. LOL

The Mystery Stone of Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire is an egg shaped artifact found in 1872. The origins and purpose of the artifact are still unknown—there are no other known objects bearing similar markings or design. The stone is currently on display at the Museum of New Hampshire History.

I wonder how I managed to necropost that far back.. I hardly ever go back in the archives more than a week or so.

Another mystery…
