In our very rural, 2-day per week newspaper, there is an interesting blurb concerning the Bat Creek Stone:
News Flash: Leslie Little Moses Kalen, our Ambassador to the Eastern band of Cherokee , and Scott Big Moses Walter, PG, President of American Petrographic Services Inc, through sheer determination, extraordinary paperwork, and negotiations for nearly one year have obtained permission to scientifically examine the Bat Creek Stone. This artifact was found in Tennessee in a very old grave of a Cherokee Jewish male. The historians of the 1800s to present have claimed that the Bat Creek Stone is a fraud because it is inscribed by using an ancient Hebrew script. The writing on the Bat Creek Stone has been translated by historians in the past by trying to read it upside down incorrectly for over a hundred years. Other historians have continuously incorrectly translated the ancient Hebrew writing right side up for over a hundred years. Only recently through members of the Abraham/Moses Project have the Rabbis in Israel correctly interpreted the ancient writing as “A Comet for Judea”. …
This article is obviously a mess, and the Stone is heavily debunked here: http://www.telliquah.com/Batcreek.htm
But I thought to post this because of the translation by the “Rabbis in Israel”.

The only thing that seems to offer a way out is simply to observe the phenomena and compare the perceptions with a lot of other folks and try to narrow down the "constant" that is present in all of them. In this way, we can have a closer idea of what the Third Man REALLY is, and what he is REALLY doing, and what then, should be our best response. And, of course, "observing phenomena" means, in its most literal sense, to gain and gather knowledge of every form and sort so that one has a sufficient database from which to draw conclusions about observations of one's environment.
