Solution re: Another wild guess (spoiler) | Comment 3 of 6 |
(In reply to Another wild guess by e.g.)

I think e.g. is on to something.  In fact, I give e.g. the credit for solving this problem.

Periodic Table:
Lanthanoids:  68 is Er    Erbium
Actinoids:      99 is Es    Einsteinium
                   102 is No   Nobelium

P is Period
G is Group
Hydroden is P1, G1  (for example)
Helium is     P1, G18

So the message is:

"No canoes sink in water"

Q1:  This statement is false, since a canoe made of lead would sink, or a canoe with a hole in it would sink
Q2: Not all messages can be encrypted this way since some letters are not represented by symbols of elements
