I have a theory that millions of years ago humanity had a technologically advanced civilization that got bombed back to stone age and that our civilization is the latest one to have advanced technology.
The script is Ancient Hebrew. Some call it Ancient Phonetician, I often call it Paleo Hebrew or just the picture words of our Father. For a clearer view, I have drawn a rendering of the inscription rock with the picture words on it. We read Hebrew beginning on the Right and reading to the Left.
Here is a translation of the picture words: Tim’s transliteration 7 lines
It is apparent that the person or persons who wrote on the stone had an excellent understanding of the Hebrew language and the Torah. It is evident that they were writing from memory because they omitted a few words and had to insert them.

So a group of friends and I recently made the hike to Los Lunas Decalogue Stone. It’s an 80 ton rock out in the middle of nowhere that has the 10 commandments carved into it in a combination of an Ancient Semitic and Phoenician. Of course it’s authenticity is surrounded by controversy. What I found most interesting was at the top of the mountain that the Mystery Rock rests near. Named “Mystery Mountain” it's littered all kinds of petroglyphs. There was a spot at the very top where more Semitic/ Phoenician was carved into a stone.

Outside of Los Lunas New Mexico there is a rock that seems to have part of the 10 Commandments (Decalogue) inscribed on it in ancient Hebrew. What I find most interesting was that when it first was discovered 1850 (Well the local native americans stated the rock pre-dated them coming into the area) this form of Hebrew was not understood. Kinda leaves out a forgery I'd say.
After examining the Los lunas site geologist, George Morehouse, estimated the placement of this Decalogue inscription up to 3000 years ago, which would, again, date it around 1000 B.C.
The inscription has been translated by the Epigraphic Society as follows:
I (am) Jehovah [the Eternal] Eloah [your God] who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim [Mizraim or the two Egypts] out of the house of bondages. You shall not have other [foreign] gods in place of (me). You shall not make for yourself molded (or carved) idols [graven images]. You shall not lift up your voice to connect the name of Jehovah in hate. Remember you (the) Sabbath to make it holy. Honor your father and your mother to make long your existence upon the land which Jehovah Eloah [the Eternal your God] gave to you. You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery (or idolatry). You shall not steal (or deceive). You shall not bear witness against your neighbor, testimony for a bribe. You shall not covet (the) wife of your neighbor and all which belongs to your neighbor.
People were already aware of the inscription when New Mexico became a territory in 1850, but no one could read it back then, mainly because the old-Hebrew or Phoenician alphabet in which this rock is inscribed was mostly unknown among scholars or archaeologists at that time. www.webcom.com...

It is the best example of the only Monospace Alphabetic Script being the Paleo-Hebrew of the original Tablets -the first document written with the Alphabet- the 'mother script' that went out with the exile of Israel and captivity of Judah in Babylon.
Of greatest importance was the Zodiac Table /Starchart at the Northernmost point of the Mesa which has a YaH in Libra commemorating a Solar Eclipse on September 27, 759 BCE revealing several planets in alignment which explains the glyph (found worldwide!) as a sounding together of the vowels in a descending scale of tones (iy eh uw oh uh ah).

I know that this is an old thread, but I wanted to share what I know about the mystery stone anyway. The markings were cleaned and deppened by people from the University of New mexico in an attempt to make it more legible and easier to translate. This happened in the 1980's, I don't know the exact date. That is why the carvings look newer than they are. There have been other translations made of the carvings. Some have said it is not hebrew in origin, but possibly ancient greek or phoenician and is a tale of the warrior Zakyneros that was isolated and struggling to survive in the wilderness here. It is a very interesting find and the Native American tribes of the area knew of the stones existince. They have stated that the stone pre dates their history here. It amuses me how things are well known by the locals but are never "discovered" until a white man sees it.

It looks to be more like 9th century BCE script than later. The earlier script was more square and right angular. See here.
The Los Lunas Decalogue inscription uses the Tetragrammaton in 3 places. They are carved on the rock surface in old Hebrew letters. And they are probably one of the world's oldest surviving writing samples of the Tetragrammaton!
There is another short stone inscription on the south pinacle of the mesa. It may have served as an altar. The picture was taken by David Moore on a field trip to Hidden Mountain in 1993. The first line contains the Tetragrammaton in paleo-Hebrew letters. The letters are similar in style to those on the Decalogue inscription stone but appear to be more eroded.
A few of the professors from the University of New Mexico said the glyph was made in the 1930's, although they can give no proof for that position. So in desperation they said that the "perpetrators were Anthropology Department students who were almost expelled from the University when Dr. Hill found out about their (supposed) activities." (J. Winter 1984)
But the problem with this position with the University of New Mexico professors is that the rock was know to the local folks before the 1930's. The local Indians had also know about it before the 1930's and called it the Hill of Strange Writing.
On the Zodiac rock the dwellers etched in star pictures or constellations showing where the moon was in relation when the solar eclipse happened (possibly how Los Lunas got its name). David Deal is an ancient American researcher went back on the computer to find when the solar eclipse occurred in that area, which was September 15, 107 B.C.,, and by this we understand about when the Ten Commandment rock was made. These folks were some of the first discoverers of Texas and New Mexico. What a heritage to be bless with this inscription here in the United States of America!

I firmly believe that we're not the first technologically advanced civilization on Planet Earth.
I also firmly believe that the cover up of the true human timeline by the archaeological community is the largest conspiracy theory happening right now.

The "Winners" wrote History. They lied.
It is impossible to know our real History.
Our "History" has been written to satisfy the "Winners".
Ego has prevented us from the true knowledge of our History.
Too bad really, it would be nice to know mankinds true History.
I'll bet it was a pretty good story...

It is a shame that religious enthusiasm muddies the already muddy waters of OOPARTs ... everyone can be said to have an agenda and thus all "found" artifacts can be painted as suspect.
originally posted by: BaddogmaI am of the opinion we humans have experienced a myriad of tech levels and that our history is vast and largely unknown... but I can't prove it. Some of the less ambiguous finds sure seem to indicate that, though.
The chunk of aluminum in millions year old strata found in Europe and the tracks from a differential suspension found in rock in Turkey are two more recent finds that jump to mind... knowing they can be argued away, too.
And yeah, what about that Cuban underwater city? Hopefully, now that Cuba is "open" to the West (poor guys), we can hear something more about that.
