Ancient rock formation is split perfectly in two

How something appears depends on the level of perception.

 

Get more myopic and it's not perfect, but jagged.

Perception belies the degree of magnification.

I bought a microscope to teach my son this lesson.

 

Look at your 'smooth' fingernail under a microscope. 

At certain magnifications, it resembles the canyons of Afghanistan.

Layers on the rocks do not lineup.  These were obviously cut and placed there.  This is a megalithic structure.

The video made me nervous, lol. I don't think I'd want to walk under that thing.

That's not 'obvious' at all. It looks like a natural, if amazing and unique, formation. Occam's Razor.

...Is what was used to cut it, LOL.

Yes they do, you can see they do from the back in the video. The two parts have shifted a bit from each other but they were one once.

This thing split and the two halves rubbed together with a few hundred thousand years of tectonic activity and erosion, grinding them flat against each other.

What - full of abandoned US military equipment?

No, none of the layers or patterns on the 2 rocks line up or even have similar patterns in the same direction.  In fact, there’s a large hole on the inside of one where on the other, it is absolutely solid/flat and pristine.  Erosion does not occur on one surface and not the other. This is absolutely NOT natural.

Can't you say the same thing about the surface of a rock cut in two by a laser?

Exactly.  That was my point.

So what do you think caused it?

Sorry, I'll take the word of archeologists who have studied it up close and say it is natural over the word of some guy on the internet doing nothing but looking at pictures of it.

Archaeologists afraid to lose their jobs by contradicting the official narrative. Never trust anyone in any field when they would be personally affected. Elon Musk has nothing to lose because he isn't part of any government operation, and look what he tweeted. Congress is all conflicted over a 3rd party not following their official narrative.

Just a note. The formation in question falls much more under the purview of geologists as opposed to archaeologists. Also note that the formation is pedestaled. This is the result of an erratic which has subsequently had softer materials eroded from around it. Yes, natural.

Edit: Phrasing.

What official narrative? It is an interesting geological formation.

Sometimes (make that almost all the time), a broken rock is just a broken rock.

It could be a faultline, the layers don't line up because they moved vertically.

Otherwise known as a slip fault, or slip joint if it doesn't occur on a faultline proper.

The picture in the UM article is confusing as hell because at first glance, there's what appears to be a fracture surface that looks superficially like folded layers running in opposite directions to each other, perpendicular to the true layering as shown in Timothy's post.
