It is a mystery in the desert hills near Los Lunas, New Mexico. It has puzzled experts for more than 50 years. It has been referred to by many different names -- Ten Commandments Rock, Mystery Rock, The Los Lunas Decalogue Stone. It is most commonly known as the Mystery Stone.
Mystery Stone is located at the base of Hidden Mountain, on New Mexico state trust land, about 16 miles west of Los Lunas. It is a boulder weighing an estimated 80 to 100 tons and is about eight meters in length. Nine rows of 216 characters were chiseled at a 150 degree angle into the north face. The characters resemble ancient Phoenician script. Like the rest of Hidden Mountain, the boulder is volcanic basalt. The site was first documented in 1936, when visited by Anthropology Professor Frank Hibben, from the University of New Mexico. Any other reported visits prior to that year are unconfirmed.

this is the original recipe for Twinky's
I thought it was the Colonel's chicken recipe.
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.
Are you serious or Joking?
Are ya sure it's not part of the Madrid Crystal Crowd ?
Good point, lol, this is the first I had seen of it.
Quick before this ends up in chat with the burning mouse
That's where I lost my homework!!!!
I will get there some day
The letters look like backward and upside down and laying
on their side English characters. It also seems odd that a serious carver wouldnt use straight lines create a quality carving. All the phonecian tablets Ive seen the characters
were set on a line and there was no separation between the
characters. This looks like a hoax!
Yawn. another one like the Heavner,Ok runestones and the Minnesota runestones.
Possibly a drunk norwegan wrote it about 100 years ago. probably says something like this in rune writing...
Here lies the body of Lester Moore.
