Samuelson's inscription (spelling correction):

THE ROCK.
OF FAIHT (FAITH).
AND TRUHT (TRUTH).
NATURE. IS. GOD.
THE. KEY. TO. LIFE.
IS. CONTACT.
EVOLUTION. IS. THE MOTHER
AND FATHER OF MANKIND
WITHOUT THEM. WE. BE. NOTHING

John. Samuelson
1927.

Interpretation:

"On this rock I am putting down the foundation for everything I believe in:

  1. Nature and God are one and the same.
  2. In order to be happy in your life, you must make regular contact with other things and beings - humans, animals, plants, rocks, etc.
  3. I believe in evolution.  If it weren't for evolution, we humans and all that surrounds us would not be here.  (Note: Samuelson is apparently both a believer in evolution and a believer in God.)"
