We're not sure what it is we are missing here. Maybe it's the translation or maybe "April Fools Day", is June 1 in China. Certainly the rock is not 200 million years old--but why couldn't someone have written the inscription--after the rock split open?
We report, you decide.
EPOCH TIMES: In June 2002, a 270 million-year-old “hidden words stone” was discovered in Guizhou.

A crack that formed 500 years ago in a megalith reveals six characters neatly brush-written in Chinese; the characters represent “The Chinese Communist Party Collapses [Zhong Guo Gong Chan Dang Wang].”
The character “collapse” is especially large. The official media in Mainland China have all reported this news, but they have hidden the word “collapse” and only mention the written words “The Chinese Communist Party”. However, the word “collapse” can be clearly seen in photos posted on the People’s Daily Online and Xinhua.Net.
According to an overseas edition of the People’s Daily, Pingtang is a high mountain valley in Guizhou province, a southwestern part of China. Zhangbu village in Pingtang County is a very scenic spot spanning over six kilometers.
The natural and beautiful scenes can be viewed with many mystical mountains, rivers, rocks, caves, bamboos, trees, and fish. The area is very isolated, and has remained untouched by humans for a long time.
In June 2002, the Duyun international photography exposition recommended this area as a scenic spot for taking photographs. During routine cleaning of the area, this “hidden words stone” was accidentally discovered.
The “hidden words stone” is split in half due to having fallen from a cliff, and the gap is wide enough to accommodate two people.
The two sections are each seven meters in length, nearly three meters tall and weigh 100 tons.
The neatly written words “The Chinese Communist Party Collapses” can be clearly seen on the right stone, and every character is nearly a square foot in size. The characters are so clearly written that they appear as if carved.
After going to the scenic area in Zhangbu village in October 2003, the vice-editor of the People’s Daily, Liang Heng wrote, “While on cliffs people may often discover that white clouds may appear to look like dogs, or something looks like a person or a beast, a picture or a chart, however, all such things are restricted by the appearance of the picture.
If today a megalith suddenly can write, speak, carve, develop writing technique, or use political terminology, how are people able to believe that? Do they even dare to believe that? However, facing these two pieces of the split “hidden words stone”, we have no alternative but to believe.”
Tourists who come to search for unusual phenomena do not actually dare to believe it. Though the craftsmanship is heavenly and Godly, how could it possibly be that skillful?
There has been “the book from heaven”, “the solar stone”, “the God stone” etc. and now there is the “hidden words stone”, which has become Zhangbu valley’s main wonder of the “seven wonders,” and has received admiration from many people.
During August 2003, Pingtang County invited a geology expert from Guizhou province to investigate Zhangbu, who later wrote a detailed report about the inspection. It was determined that the “hidden words stone” fell from a high mountain cliff by the Zhangbu river valley.
On the steep mountain cliff, one can see a corresponding dent from where the rock must have fallen. After the megalith fell, it split into two, and the large brush-written characters of “The Chinese Communist Party Collapses” can be clearly seen on the right hand side behind the fracture.
Three months later, the famous Chinese scientific culture inspection group for Guizhou Pingtang geological anomalies had been formed to investigate the “hidden words stone” during December 5th through 8th, 2003.
The fifteen-person team included Li Tingdong, who is an academician from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, assistant director of the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences and an expert on Aerial Geology and Geographic Charts; Liu Baojun, academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences and renowned geologists, Li Fenglin, professor at China University of Geosciences and committee member of National Geoparks in the National Land Resources Department.
Experts believed that the “hidden words stone” in Zhangbu river valley was from roughly 270 million years ago, the Permian period. The even arrangement of the characters on the “hidden words stone” may be explained from a geological perspective that there are no traces of having been man made, though the probability is small.
This “hidden words stone” not only is a world-class marvelous sight, but also has great geological research value.
During this investigation, People’s Daily, CCTV, Guanming Daily, Technical Daily, Travel Satellite, China International Broadcasting station, and 20 other media reporters including People’s Daily.Net, Sina.Net, Eastern Net, Sohu.Net, Yahoo, and New China ally reported on the finding. More than 100 other newspapers, television stations, and websites have retransmitted the news about the scientific investigation.
Even though no one dares to mention the sixth character, “collapses”, and only report the first five characters, everyone who can see it understands its meaning.
In an infinite universe which allows infinite possibilities, anything might occur. In our infinite space-time, nature can always create the most ideal design; while this coincidence could only happen once in a billion years, unexpectedly it has occurred in Buyi Village, Pingtang County.
