    Mystery Glyphs (Saint George)

    Anyone have any insight as to the origin of these glyphs?
    Similar ones are found in Cedar City , Fillmore , Manti canyon and other locations in Utah and the western states. I have heard a few rumors of the meaning and the origin ... but I smell bulls**t

    What??? You're not buying the location to buried Spanish treasure story?

    I've studied the Mystery Glyph a little over the years. The earliest reference I found to them was 1930 to the Cedar City Glyph.

    The horse symbol means post Columbus. They are found near Morman settlements.

    My guess a Mormon pioneer or later carved them, why I have no clue.

    FWIW - Another theory/legend is they we're put were Mormon temples are to be built by God/profits/seers/angels.

    The Mystery Glylps are actually entertaining to read about if nothing else, at least they are if you're bored.

    It's either clues to the location of an Aztec gold cache, or it's ancient writings from the prophet Moroni and/or other fleeing Nephites.

    Of all the theories I have heard this one seems closer to an explanation than any other.
    When ever I encounter one of these sites I am overwhelmed by a crippling feeling of sorrow, the feeling of nonfulfillment of hopes and expectations, something incomplete.

    Really makes you wonder why they were made. Somebody invested a modest amount of time and effort to etch those into the rock.

    Could it really just be boredom? Or virgin sacrifices...?
