I just got done watching the show "America Unearthed" on H2 and was pretty disappointed. The show was about a stone with runic inscriptions in Arizona. They deciphered it and traced a name back to England. The whole show seemed ver speculative. I couldn't find and more info on the stone or the story behind it. Any one else wondering?

the grave marker? I got the impression at the end that they were going to apply for permits to dig there based on the ground radar hits.

Chances are this is just one of those other cobbled together shows with very little research and a truck load of assumptions.

There's another thread about this television program. It's probably on page 2 or 3 of the list of topics for this forum.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Yes, but that thread (the one you started) is about a Mayan connection with Georgia:

No, it's about the show in general. I merely pointed out the Mayan thing as an example of what the show is about. But everyone ignored that.

Yeah, I think I'm to blame for that...

The person doing all this investigation got his start when he examined the Kensington Rune Stone and found it to be authentic.  I had to laugh because the Kensington Rune Stone was found to be a fake based on the linguistics used.

They didn't use thousands of workers - oops forgot about the work camps
There's no evidence for ramps - You found one?...Bummer
Well we know they didn't use ancient tools to cut and shape the stones - Chisel marks?  Craps

Yeah I see where you're coming from. Considering that almost all Runologists and experts in Scandinavian linguistics consider the runestone to be a hoax.

I was impressed with the Demonstration of Dowsing however. Rekindled my interest in that area.

I caught the last 15 minutes of an episode last night about the "Anubis Cave" in western Oklahoma.  The cave takes it's name from a crude carving of a dog-ish figure.  Other figures noted were a crude man holding something that could possibly construed as a knife or sword and a bull figure, with a sunset depicted between them.  The latter was connected to the fact that the sun shines on that spot of the cave wall when it sets at the autumnal equinox (and probably also for a few weeks around that date).

So naturally the host of the show interpreted the cave as evidence for a migration of Celts who practiced Mithraism and also worshipped Anubis.  I giggled.

They actually said "evidence for a migration of Celts who practiced Mithraism and also worshipped Anubis." Bit of a stretch isn't it?

hmm... kinda sounds to me  like on the autumn equinox the buffalo had them trapped in the cave and they were really really bored sitting there waiting for the buffalo to move so they doodled lol.... why does science always assume these people sat around a campfire and planned out every line drawn on a cave wall?? they never say  " well i think they went in here to take a nice private dump and doodled on the wall."... have you ever been in a public bathroom stall or a portajohn?? this is human nature!

Ok I understand you spent 50 bucks to get high to post that.... that does not make you sound more intelligent. I would suggest a refund... being arguable is not the same as being intelligent....
