1.There are no other rune stones in Europe that are like it.
2. There are no other messages like it on rune stones in Europe.
3. It's possible that relatives of Edward Larsson could have carved the inscription as they immigrated from the Dalcarlian region of Northern Sweden which has runes similar to the Kensington Rune Stone alphabet.
4. He believed it was likely the carver was inspired by the Chicago World's Fair "Vikings" Expedition of 1893.
To say this is weak evidence to support his opinion would be an understatement. First, that there are no other rune stones like it is not evidence to support a modern origin. Further, the same is true about his second reason. The Kensington inscription and manuscript style of the message absolutely are unique and therefore, all the more rare and important. To try to use these claims as evidence of forgery certainly isn't a scientific way of thinking at all and reeks of an agenda. You'd think a one-of-a-kind medieval runic text would present an exciting opportunity to learn which a more clear thinking scholar would jump at.
Even a quick scan at the comparative table below that lists the Kensington and Dalacarlian runes proves Williams' third reason is sheer fantasy and begs the question why he would say something that he already knows isn't true?
Lastly, speculating that the 1893 World's Fair Exhibition somehow inspired a forger is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. It also begs the question, why would somebody inspired by a "Viking" exhibition carve a stone with medieval runes instead of Viking Age runes?
None of the reasons listed meet the bar as factual evidence against the stone, so why does Williams continue to say the Kensington Stone is probably a hoax when he knows it's 100% authentic? This raises other questions as well. Why does Williams continue to marginalize and ignore the geological weathering work myself and Newton H. Winchell performed on the artifact, work he is not qualified to comment on yet still does, that proved the Kensington Rune Stone is a medieval artifact? Why does he continue to ignore the voluminous examples of the Hooked X, something he says is modern, in Icelandic manuscripts dating back several hundred years? And why would he continue to ask for donations to pay for him to come to the United States and talk about all the "fake" rune stones we supposedly have here? Does he really think we're that dumb? Apparently so.
The truth of the matter with the KRS inscription is it's a Templar/Masonic document that has nothing at all to do with the tradition of rune stones in Scandinavia. Until Williams and the rest of the runologists stop trying to frame the discussion by trying to tell the KRS what it should be, instead of letting it tell them what it is, they have no chance of figuring it out.
I will give him credit for one thing. That he hasn't completely closed the door on the authenticity is very telling. After having worked with him for 5 years I know that he knows it's real, and by leaving open the possibility it could be genuine gives him plausible deniability should new evidence comes forward that even he can no longer explain away. That new evidence is coming soon. Until it does, it's time for the History Center and the American Swedish Institute to wake up and hold this guy, and his personal representative, Loraine Jensen, accountable for their words and actions. For those who missed it, I would ask you to read my February, 2016, blog posting where I detail the academic fraud Professor Williams, and the late Richard Nielsen, committed with the Kensington Rune Stone inscription. It's a pretty good read and generated lots of discussion. What do you think about all of this?

However, as we now move closer to understanding what the anomalies mean, as well as a better understanding of the untold pre-Columbian history of North America, the Kensington Rune Stone is finally finding its true and rightful place. It must now be accepted as a land claim put down by the medieval Templar's who embraced the ancient ideology of Monotheistic Dualism, to establish a "free state" where people can move, think, worship their God, and speak freely. The rune stone was the beginning of the founding of the United States begun by the Templar's and then successfully completed by their direct ideological descendants; Freemasonry.
The mission to establish this free state was certainly considered a sacred act, or a "Covenant" if you will. It was of utmost importance and demanded extreme secrecy and loyalty. With all of this in mind, we (my wife Janet and Alan Butler) were thinking about the Ritual Code numbers again when something occurred to us. In their new book, "America: Nation of the Goddess," Janet and Alan explained how our Founding Fathers used the megalithic yard to lay out the entire city of Washington, D.C. The megalithic yard is a sacred, ancient measurement calculated using the movements of the planet Venus and a 366 degree circle verses 360 degrees, to consistently and accurately determine its length of 2.72 feet. While discussing the relevance of the megalithic yard and the Kensington Rune Stone numbers, it dawned us to do a simple calculation; what happens when you divide 22 by 8? The answer shook us to our core, 2.75 feet. Even though it wasn't exactly the same it was close enough to make a reasonable connection and to wonder if the allegory and coded information was intended to acknowledge the presence of the Creator to guide and protect the vitally important land claim of the land the medieval Templar's likely viewed as their eventual sanctuary. For those who would like to read more about how a certain group of Freemasons calculated the megalithic yard in the late 19th Century in Washington, D.C., click here: http://www.nationofthegoddess.com/the-summerhouse.html
While pondering the significance of all this something else popped into my head that prompted me to pull out a tape measure and stretch it across the length of the full-sized cast I have of the artifact. it measure 31 inches long...

I know this paper is going to stir lively debate and will likely be confusing to those who are not Freemasons. However, I will do my best to try to clarify those with questions. I'm sure some will try to claim the inscription was created by a York Rite Mason in the mid to late 1800's. This will be an erroneous claim as no one in modern times could fake the many centuries-old weathering of the inscription or the Dotted R, to say nothing about the other previously unknown medieval runic and linguistic features that had not yet been discovered. For me, this is the final nail in the case that beings everything together and answers all the important questions about the inscription. Keep in mind this discovery doesn't change or eliminate the previous discoveries I've made with other researchers such as the "Dating Code," "Grail Code" or the meaning of the Hooked X. In fact, this discovery brings even more clarity to these discoveries and confirms the author of the inscription was a medieval monk who was initiated in the ancient Hebrew and Egyptian mysteries.
This paper was recently submitted to a peer-reviewed Masonic journal and was published in the Rocky Mountain Mason on June 21st. For those interested in a copy of the published article please contact Ben Williams at the following website: rockymountainmason.com
What follows is the article I submitted that the reviewers may have changed slightly. I had not yet seen the final publication, but was assured the final version was very close to this one. Enjoy!
In 1909, Professor Newton H. Winchell, the first State Geologist of Minnesota, performed a geological examination of the artifact and concluded the weathering of the inscription was consistent with 500 years and it was authentic. Winchell’s conclusion was independently replicated by the author who by comparing the weathering with dated slate tombstones, concluded the weathering of the rune stone inscription was older than 200 years from the time of the discovery. Further, the author has provided detailed historical, epigraphic, linguistic and runological evidence that shows the inscription is consistent with a late 14th century creation date and the stone likely served as a land claim.
