Posted on 09/28/2008 1:27:28 PM PDT by Justice Department
Almost every form of life that has existed on earth appears to have gone through a giant phase. There have been giant plants, giant insects, giant reptiles, giant birds, giant fish, giant mammals and giant humans.
“Modern experts firmly reject the idea that there have ever been entire races of giants, and are adamant that our distant ancestors were primitive apelike creatures much smaller than ourselves. Worldwide legends and traditions, on the other hand, assert that there were races of giants in days of old. Theosophy agrees, and says that just as many modern animal and plant species had giant ancestors, so did modern humans.1 Over the past few hundred years, humans have grown slightly taller, but the long-term trend, measured over millions of years, is towards a reduction in stature, with relative dwarves and giants probably existing in every age.
A surprising number of giant human skeletons have in fact been discovered, some of them reaching heights of 4.6 m (15 ft) or more. In many cases, the present whereabouts of the remains is unknown, and many details about the skeletons and the circumstances of their discovery are lacking, including indications as to their possible age. But to dismiss every such find out of hand as a delusion or hoax would seem to owe more to rank prejudice than to healthy scepticism.”
I thought Wadlow had a disease that caused his abnormal growth? Also I believe he died at age 21 because of it.
What is he wearing on his belt?
I don’t think he’s wearing a belt...
Woah! Now where did you get that picture?
Everybody knows giants are real, but wrestling is still fake.
Now those are great pictures. But I’m pretty sure Wadlow was a diseased boy.
Also, the theory on the Giant era was because of the atmospheric conditions that allowed for it, it also allowed (in theory) people to live hundreds of years.
Wadlow lived in the SAME atmospheric conditions you and I do.
Evidently, we live in the era of “giant suckers”
I wouldn’t say that given that one pic.
It’s hard to believe when he’s posting someone who is documented as having a problem with his pituitary gland.
That's because he used it to beat off . . . . predators.
