Today at Coast to Coast, there's an interesting photo of an engraving. the sender claims it was taken 'deep in the woods by an old railroad track' in Independence, MO. The script definitely looks runic, but the characters are not very easily identifiable.
There's a possibility that the characters may just have a runic appearance, due to the tool that was used to carve them. Obviously, straight lines are easier to impress than curved. It may be a regular alphabet.
Independence Missouri has quite an occult history, and is a center of all kinds of Mormon folklore. According to legend, it is the antideluvian Garden of Eden. Independence is the headquarters of the Reorganized LDS church, sporting their odd-looking temple. It is also somewhat of a spiritual battleground, there's legends about the LDS church taking over the land at some future point, and it is supposed to be Christ's headquarters from which he will rule after the second coming. I remember people saying that when the temple gets built (it's been there for years now) the time will be close at hand, and then when 'The Church' takes over, it will be any minute for his return.
Nearby is the strange land Adam-ondi-Ahman. I have been there, and it was a very odd feeling. Kind of unsettling, both good and bad. There is a stone slab, and there's a legend it was the altar of Adam and Eve. Rather impossible, from all angles. I have a picture of myself doing a backbend on it somewhere.
Perhaps this inscription was carved by the archangel Michael himself (Adam, according to the doctrine. at least i think that's doctrine. I'm too lazy to look it up this morning, and it feels like tornado weather, so I'm unsettled. Please feel free to correct any mo-mis-info I have here--I hate that.)
