I'll tell you what's weirder than the cipher of Liber AL, and that is what J.R.R. Tolkein wrote in Lord of the Rings:

SH NZG DRBTLK
SH NZG GMbTL
SH NZG ThRKTLK
GH BRZM SH KRMpTL

Ash nazg dubatuluk
Ash nazg gimbatul
Ash nazg thrakatuluk
agh burzim-ishi krimpatul

One ring to rule them all
One ring to find them
One ring to bring them all
And in the darkness bind them

Same number of syllables. Sounds quite similar. It also shares a similar meaning? What do you think? Tolkein was a linguistics nerd too.

I think Tolkein may have known a whole lot more about what was going on it the world then we'll ever know.

This is the Tengwar language, of course. And I know that because I enjoy Tolkein. I also know that because I'm a dork.
