We are once again questioning why this isn't the biggest news story in the world... could this massive monolith discovered in the Utah desert be a paranormal occurence?

This has major 2001: A Space Odyssey vibes... 

Local authorities are baffled at the object. The Utah Department of Public Safety  says the monolith seems to have been planted in the ground and that it is manmade, and even speculate that it could be some sort of art installation... but plenty others think that the monolith could have been left by aliens.
