Giant Human Remains 

- From records and sources all over the world. -submitted by John Williams

Giant Skeletons:

In his book, The Natural and Aboriginal History of Tennessee, author John
Haywood describes "very large" bones in stone graves found in Williamson
County, Tennessee, in 1821. In White County, Tennessee, an "ancient
fortification" contained skeletons of gigantic stature averaging at least 7
feet in length.


Giant skeletons were found in the mid-1800s near Rutland and Rodman, New
York. J.N. DeHart, M.D. found vertebrae "larger than those of the present
type" in Wisconsin mounds in 1876. W.H.R. Lykins uncovered skull bones "of
great size and thickness" in mounds of Kansas City area in 1877.


George W. Hill, M.D., dug out a skeleton "of unusual size" in a mound of
Ashland County, Ohio. In 1879, a nine-foot, eight-inch skeleton was
excavated from a mound near Brewersville, Indiana (Indianapolis News, Nov 10,
1975).


A six foot, six inch skeleton was found in a Utah mound. This was at least a
foot taller than the average Indian height in the area, and these natives-
what few there were of them -were not mound builders.


"A skeleton which is reported to have been of enormous dimensions" was found
in a clay coffin, with a sandstone slab containing hieroglyphics, during
mound explorations by a Dr Everhart near Zanesville, Ohio. (American
Antiquarian, v3, 1880, pg61).


Ten skeletons "of both sexes and of gigantic size" were taken from a mound
at Warren, Minnesota, 1883. (St. Paul Pioneer Press, May 23, 1883)
A skeleton 7 feet 6 inches long was found in a massive stone structure that
was likened to a temple chamber within a mound in Kanawha County, West
Virginia, in 1884. (American Antiquarian, v6, 1884 133f. Cyrus Thomas,
Report on Mound Explorations of the Bureau of Ethnology, 12th Annual Report,
Smithsonian Bureau of Ethnology, 1890-91).


A large mound near Gasterville, Pennsylvania, contained a vault in which was
found a skeleton measuring 7 feet 2 inches. Inscriptions were carved on the
vault. (American Antiquarian, v7, 1885, 52f).


In 1885, miners discovered the mummified remains of woman measuring 6 feet 8
inches tall holding an infant. The mummies were found in a cave behind a
wall of rock in the Yosemite Valley.


In Minnesota, 1888, were discovered remains of seven skeletons 7 to 8 feet
tall. (St. Paul Pioneer Press, June 29, 1888).


A mound near Toledo, Ohio, held 20 skeletons, seated and facing east with
jaws and teeth "twice as large as those of present day people," and besides
each was a large bowl with "curiously wrought hieroglyphic figures."
(Chicago Record, Oct. 24, 1895; cited by Ron G. Dobbins, NEARA Journal, v13,
fall 1978).


The skeleton of a huge man was uncovered at the Beckley farm, Lake Koronis,
Minnesota; while at Moose Island and Pine City, bones of other giants came
to light. (St. Paul Globe, Aug. 12, 1896).


In 1911, several red-haired mummies ranging from 6 and a half feet to 8 feet
tall were discovered in a cave in Lovelock, Nevada.
In February and June of 1931, large skeletons were found in the Humboldt
lake bed near Lovelock, Nevada. The first of these two skeletons found
measured 8 1/2 feet tall and appeared to have been wrapped in a gum-covered
fabric similiar to the Egyptian manner. The second skeleton was almost 10
feet long. (Review - Miner, June 19, 1931).


A 7 foot 7 inch skeleton was reported to have been found on the Friedman
ranch, near Lovelock, Nevada, in 1939.(Review - Miner, Sept. 29, 1939)
In 1965, a skeleton measuring 8 feet 9 inches was found buried under a rock
ledge along the Holly Creek in east-central Kentucky.


AUSTRALIAN GIANTS:

There was a race or group of people found in Australia called "meganthropus"
by anthropologists. These people were of very large size--estimated between
7 to 12 feet tall, depending on what source you read. These people were
found with mega tool artifacts, so their humaness is difficult to question.
Four jaw fragments and thousands of teeth have been found in China of
"gigantopithecus blacki"--named after the discover. Based on the size of the
teeth and deep jaws, its size has been estimated at around 10 feet and as
tall as 12 feet, 1200 pounds.

PROOF OF AUSTRALIAN GIANTS:

In old river gravels near Bathurst, NSW, huge stone artifacts -- clubs,
pounders, adzes, chisels, knives and hand axes -- all of tremendous weight,
lie scattered over a wide area. These weigh anything from 8, 10, 15, to 21
and 25 pounds, implements which only men of tremendous proportions could
possibly have made and used. Estimates for the actual size of these men
range from 10 to 12 feet tall and over, weighing from 500 to 600 lbs.
A fossicker searching the Winburndale River north of Bathurst discovered a
large quartzitised fossil human molar tooth, far too big for any normal
modern man. A similar find was made near Dubbo, N.S.W.


Prospectors working in the Bathurst district in the 1930's frequently
reported coming across numerous large human footprints fossilised in shoals
of red jasper.


Even more impressive were fossil deposits found by naturalist Rex Gilroy
around Bathurst. He excavated from a depth of 6 feet (2 m) below the surface
a fossil lower back molar tooth measuring 67 mm. in length by 50mm. x 42 mm.
across the crown. If his measurements are correct, the owner would have been
at least 25 ft. tall, weighing well over 1,000 lbs!


At Gympie, Queensland, a farmer, Keith Walker, was ploughing his field when
he turned up the large fragment of the back portion of a jaw which still
possessed the hollow for a missing lower back molar tooth. This is now in
Rex GiIroy's possession. The owner of the tooth would have stood
at 10 feet tall.


In the Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains NSW, a Mr P. Holman found in
ironstone protruding from a creek bank the deeply impressed print of a large
human-like foot. The print was that of the instep, with all 5 toes clearly
shown. This footprint measures 7 inches across the toes. Had the footprint
been complete it would have been at least 2 feet (60 cm in length,
appropriate to a 12 foot human. However, the largest footprint found on the
Blue Mountains must have belonged to a man 20 feet tall!


A set of 3 huge footprints was discovered near Mulgoa, south of Penrith,
N.S.W. These prints, each measuring 2 ft long and 7 inches across the toes,
are 6 ft. apart, indicating the stride of the 12 ft. giant who left them.
These prints were preserved by volcanic lava and ash flows which "occurred
millions of years" before man is supposed to have appeared on the Australian
continent (if one is to believe the evolutionary theory):
Noel Reeves found monstrous footprints near Kempsey, N.S.W. in sandstone
beds on the Upper Macleay River. One print shows toe 4 inches (10cm) long
and the total toe-span is 10 inches (25cm) - suggesting that the owner of
the print may have been 17 feet tall.


It is certain the Aborigines were not the first to reach Australia.
Anthropologists maintain mainland Aborigines are in fact quite recent
arrivals that ate their precessors who were akin to the New Guinea natives.
Aborigine themselves admit in their ancient folklore that this land was
inhabited by several groups of men, as well as giants, before they settled
here.

MORE GIANT RECORDS:

In an old book entitled "History And Antiquities Of Allerdale," there is an
account of a giant found in Cumberland, England, at an unknown date in the
middle ages. Called "A True Report of Hugh Hodson, of Thorneway," it states:
"The said gyant was buried four yards deep in the ground, which is now a
corn field. He was four yards and a half long, and was in complete armour;
his sword and battle-axe lying by him....his teeth were six inches long, and
two inches broad...." The bones of a twelve foot tall man were dug up in
1833 by a group of soldiers at Lompock Rancho, California. The skeleton was
surrounded by giant weapons, and the skull featured a double row of teeth.
Yet another giant was unearthed in 1891, when workmen in Crittenden, Arizona
excavated a huge stone coffin that had evidently once held the body of a man
12 feet tall. A carving on the granite case indicated that he had six toes.


A living giant was sighted in the little village of Buffalo Mills,
Pennsylvania, on August 19, 1973. A man at least nine feet tall strode down
the main street of the village, dressed in strange clothing, which appeared
to be made of some sort of shimmering material. He gazed at the startled
townspeople in a dark, penetrating way and then loped off casually into
oblivion.

OTHER GIANT EVIDENCES:

In July, 1877, four prospectors were looking for gold and silver
outcroppings in a desolate, hilly area near the head of Spring Valley, not
far from Eureka, Nevada.


Scanning the rocks, one of the men spotted something peculiar projecting
from a high ledge. Climbing up to get a better look, the prospector was
surprised to find a human legbone and knee cap sticking out of solid rock.
He called to his companions, and together they dislodged the oddity with
picks. Realizing they had a most unusual find, the men brought it into
Eureka, where it was placed on display.


The stone in which the bones were embedded was a hard, dark red quartzite,
and the bones themselves were almost black with carbonization - indicative
of great age. When the surrounding stone was carefully chipped away, the
specimen was found to be composed of a leg bone broken off four inches above
the knee, the knee cap and joint, the lower leg bones, and the complete
bones of the foot. Several medical doctors examined the remains, and were
convinced that anatomically they had indeed once belonged to a human being,
and a very modern-looking one.


But an intriguing aspect of the bones was their size: from knee to heel they
measured 39 inches. Their owner in life had thus stood over 12 feet tall.
Compounding the mystery further was the fact that the rock in which the
bones were found was dated geologically to the era of the dinosaurs, the
Jurassic - over 185 million years old. The local papers ran several stories
on the marvelous find, and two museums sent investigators to see if any more
of the skeleton could be located. Unfortunately, nothing else but the leg
and foot existed in the rock." Strange Relics from the Depths of the
Earth--Jochmans http://www.ior.com/~kjc/pages/strange.htm

EVEN MORE RECORDS OF GIANTS:

In 1936 Larson Kohl, the German paleontologist and anthropologist, found the
bones of gigantic men on the shore of Lake Elyasi in Central Africa. Other
giant skeletons were later found in Hava, the Transvaal and China. The
evidence for the existence of giants is incontrovertible. "A scientifically
assured fact," says Dr. Louis Burkhalter.

1. Large bones in stone graves in Williamson County and White County,
Tennessee. Discovered in the early 1800s, the average stature of
these giants was 7 feet tall.
2. Giant skeletons found in the mid-1800s in New York state near Rutland and
Rodman.
3. In 1833, soldiers digging at Lompock Rancho, California, discovered a
male skeleton 12 feet tall.
The skeleton was surrounded by caved shells, stone axes, other artifacts.
The skeleton had double rows of upper and lower teeth.
Unfortunately, this body was secretly buried because the local Indians
became upset about the remains.
4. A giant skull and vertebrae found in Wisconsin and Kansas City.
5. A giant found off the California Coast on Santa Rosa Island in the 1800s
was distinguished by its double rows of teeth.
6. A 9-foot, 8-inch skeleton was excavated from a mount near Brewersville,
Indiana, in 1879.
7. Skeletons of "enormous dimensions" were found in mounds near Zanesville,
Ohio, and Warren, Minnesota, in the 1880s.
8. In Clearwater Minnesota, the skeletons of seven giants were found in
mounds. These had receding foreheads and complete double dentition.
9. At Le Crescent, Wisconsin, mounds were found to contain giant bones. Five
miles north near Dresbach, the bones of people over 8 feet tall were found.
10. In 1888 seven skeletons ranging from seven to 8 feet tall were
discovered.
11. Near Toledo, Ohio, 20 skeletons were discovered with jaws and teeth
"twice as large as those of present day people."
The account also noted that odd hieroglyphics were found with the bodies.
12. Miners in Lovelock Cave, California, discovered a very tall, red-haired
mummy In 1911
13. This mummy eventually went to a fraternal lodge where it was used for
"initiation purposes."
14. In 1931, skeletons from 8 ½ to 10 feet long were found in the Humbolt
lake bed in California.
15. In 1932, Ellis Wright found human tracks in the gypsum rock at White
Sands, New Mexico
His discovery was later backed up by Fred Arthur, Supervisor of the Lincoln
National Park and others who reported that each footprint was 22 inches long
and from 8 to 10 inches wide. They were certain the prints were human in
origin due to the outline of the perfect prints coupled with a readily
apparent instep.
16. During World War II, author Ivan T. Sanderson tells of how his crew was
bulldozing through sedimentary rock when it stumbled upon what appeared to
be a graveyard.
In it were crania that measured from 22 to 24 inches from base to crown
nearly three times as large as an adult human skull.
Had the creatures to whom these skulls belonged been properly proportioned,
they undoubtedly would have been at least 12 feet tall or taller.
17. In 1947 a local newspaper reported the discovery of nine-foot-tall
skeletons by amateur archeologists working in Death Valley.
18. The archeologists involved also claimed to have found what appeared to
be the bones of tigers and dinosaurs with the human remains.
19. The Catalina Islands, off California, are the home of dwarf mammoth
bones that were once roasted in ancient fire pits.
These were roasted and eaten by human-like creatures who were giants with
double rows of teeth.

THE KOSSUTH GIANTS:

Kossuth: October was a month of some excitement in scientific circles as
seven strange and gigantic mummies were discovered just outside of Kossuth
Center. Marvin Rainwater, a local farmer, had been digging a new well on his
property and struck a deposit of very hard stone about nine feet below the
topsoil. In attempting to dig it out, he found that it was more than four
feet wide in every direction. Removing it would be a terrific chore. He
considered the possibility that this was a layer of bedrock, but that would
certainly be odd that close to the surface. Further, being somewhat familiar
with geologic deposits, he knew that the stone was not the familiar
limestone for which such Eastern Iowa areas like Stone City are famous. This
was something else entirely. Upon close inspection Rainwater also saw that
the stone was not as rough as might be expected in a natural formation, but
was in fact smooth and polished.  Now very curious as to the nature of the
find, he called several friends from surrounding farms and they began an
excavation. They discovered that it was not a single stone, but rather one
of at least several irregularly cut slabs stretching out over a wide area,
yet fitted so tightly together that not even a knife blade could be put
between them. Each slab measured roughly 8'x10', and when struck with a
sledge seemed to ring with a hollowness that might indicate this was not a
floor but the outside portion of a ceiling. Rainwater wondered if he had not
stumbled upon some sort of buried stone structure on his property. Believing
that there might be a way to parlay living other than farming if he played
his cards right, Mr. Rainwater contacted Georg Von Podebrad College, who in
turn dispatched a team of archeologists, anthropologists, and geologists to
the site.  The researchers were delighted with the anomalies presented them.
Firstly, the stone was not at all native to Iowa, but was in fact basalt-a
hard, dense volcanic rock composed of plagioclase, augite, and magnetite.
The type of stone used by the Egyptians to build their massive monuments.
The depth of the slabs indicated that they had been there for a very long
time, predating the advent of the kind of modern transportation and heavy
machinery needed to bring such a large quantity of foreign stone to Iowa,
and quite probably the slabs had been laid down before the last glacial age.
It is impossible to gauge with any certainty just how long they had been
there.  After the soil covering the slabs had been entirely removed, the
area covered by the stones was a perfect square measuring 188 feet on each
side. Digging around the perimeter revealed that Rainwater had been correct,
the structure did go deeper into the ground. The cyclopean structure was
revealed to be a pyramid similar in shape to one located at Marietta, Ohio,
although those mounds and monuments erected by the prehistoric Indians were
made of sun dried brick mixed with rushes. This technique, too, is curiously
similar to the Egyptian technique of brick making with straw and mud.  It
took many months, but the entire structure was finally exposed, and on the
eastern side was found a massive filled in archway with strong resemblance
to those of ancient Greece. At the bottom of the arch was a smaller arch,
measuring only 6' to the capstone. This too had been filled in and blocked
off. With genuine awe and some hesitancy the scientists of the Rainwater
Site began the work of opening the smaller entryway, wondering what  light
from the first torch penetrated the gloom of the ancient structure, Albert
Grosslockner gasped at what he thought were seven huge and exquisitely
detailed statues seated in a ring around a very large and deep fire pit.
Moving closer, he realized that the figures were not carved of stone, but
were in fact the mummified remains of some giant humanoid race. 

Could what they found be in fact a prehistoric burial vault for some pre-human
creatures or was it a prison designed to hold some freakish aberration of
nature? The figures, were each fully ten feet tall even when measured seated
in their cross-legged positions. They all faced into the circle with arms
folded across their legs. Upon close examination it was seen that they had
double rows of teeth in their upper and lower jaws. The foreheads were
unusually low and sloping, with exceedingly prominent brows. The skin of the
mysterious giants was wrinkled and tough, as though tanned, and the hair of
each of them was distinctly red in color. Their faces, still very expressive
even in death, taunted the scientists with their silence. Who, or what, were
these creatures, how had they come to be locked in this stone room, and
where had the stone itself come from originally?  After careful excavation
of the site, the bodies were removed for x-ray and autopsy examination. The
excitement over the find was far in excess of the "Gypsum Man" find in Iowa
so many years before-a hoax from which the Putnam Museum of Davenport had
never fully recovered from. These giants were very real. The medical
examinations demonstrated that there was definite skeletal structure, that
they were organic creatures who had once been very much alive.  One
explanation for the mummies might lie in the legends of the Paiute Indians
who tell of a race of red-haired giants who were their mortal enemies
centuries ago. They were called the Si-Te-Cahs, driven from Nevada by a
previously unheard of alliance of tribes. Did the Si-Te-Cahs retreat from
the west to Iowa? Was the stone structure here before and simply co-opted by
the giants? No one may ever know, however it is interesting to note that
among the Indian relics held in the Kossuth County chapter of the State
Historical Society are three robes made entirely from very long strands of
red hair. We await DNA comparisons of samples taken from the mummies and the
robes to determine a connection.  In the mean-time, Marvin Rainwater has had
his farm purchased by interested parties in Hopkins Grove for an undisclosed
sum, and is quite happily no longer toiling in his fields or digging wells.

GIANT SKULLS FOUND:

Ivan T. Sanderson, a well-known zoologist and frequent guest on Johnny
Carson's TONIGHT SHOW in the 1960s (usually with an exotic animal with a
pangolin or a lemur), once related a curious story about a letter he
received regarding an engineer who was stationed on the Aleutian island of
Shemya during World War II. While building an airstrip, his crew bulldozed a
group of hills and discovered under several sedimentary layers what appeared
to be human remains. The Alaskan mound was in fact a graveyard of gigantic
human remains, consisting of crania and long leg bones. The crania measured
from 22 to 24 inches from base to crown. Since an adult skull normally
measures about eight inches from back to front, such a large crania would
imply an immense size for a normally proportioned human. Furthermore, every
skull was said to have been neatly trepanned (a process of cutting a hole in
the upper portion of the skull).


In fact, the habit of flattening the skull of an infant and forcing it to
grow in an elongated shape was a practice used by ancient Peruvians, the
Mayas, and the Flathead Indians of Montana. Sanderson tried to gather
further proof, eventually receiving a letter from another member of the unit
who confirmed the report. The letters both indicated that the Smithsonian
Institution had collected the remains, yet nothing else was heard. Sanderson
seemed convinced that the Smithsonian Institution had received the bizarre
relics, but wondered why they would not release the data. He asks, ""...is
it that these people cannot face rewriting all the textbooks?""

GIANT FOOTPRINTS:

In South Africa, a giant footprint of a woman measuring over 4 feet long has
been carbon dated at aproximately 9 million years old. Pointing to the
probability of this being a female human-like species' foot, proportionally
the two-legged being would need to be some 30 feet tall! The local African
people commonly refer to this as a highly revered and sacred site. Giants,
twice the size of gorillas, were found in Java.


The petrified remains of a giant were found in South Africa. A well-known
anthropologist declared that these remains showed that these man's ancestors
must have been giants.


GIANT DEVILS:

Within an ancient burial mound near the town of Sayre in Bradford County,
Pennsylvania, skeletons measuring approximately 7 feet in length were
discovered in the 1800s. But the most remarkable feature of these tall
skeletons was not their height, but the strange horn-like protrusions above
the brow region on their skulls. It was estimated that they were buried
around 1200 AD. According to some sources, the skeletons were sent to the
"American Investigating Museum" in Philadelphia, and vanished.

REVISED ARTICLES:

In Lampec-Rancho California, in 1833, soldiers discovered a skeleton 11' 9''
long which was covered with boulders with an unidentified writing. A similar
writing was unearthed on the isle of Santa Maria off the cost of Los
Angeles. In July of 1887 in Eureka Nevada, a human leg was found measuring
38.9 inches form the knee to the heel. The man was over 11 foot tall. In
Crittenton Arizona in 1891 a sarcophagus was uncovered containing a human 3
meters high and had 12 toes. More recently skeletons ranging from 2.8 meters
to 3.12 meters were found by soviets in the Caucasus Mountains. In China
skeletons 10 feet tall have been found. In the Philippines a giant human
skeleton was found at gargation, Measuring 17 feet long. In the Eagle three
Cole mine at Bear Creek Montana in 1920 two human molars were found three
times larger than normal. In Braton Tennessee human footprints were found in
solid rock 33 inches log and one foot wide. These also have six toes each.
Tools found in Morocco are so large their users must have been at least 12
foot tall. Other Giants found around the world are: the Java giant, the south China giant, and the South Africa giant. (See The Timeless Earth p. 26)

In 1833,soldiers digging a pit for a powder magazine at Lompock
Rancho, California, hacked their way through a layer of cemented gravel and
came up with the skeleton of a giant man about twelve feet tall. The skeleton
was surrounded by carved shells, huge stone axes, and blocks of porphyry
covered with unintelligible symbols. The giant was also noteworthy in still
another respect :He had a double row of teeth, both upper and lower.
When the natives began to attach some religious significance to the find,
authorities ordered the skeleton and all the artifacts secretly reburied-
and , of course ,lost to the scientific study they deserved.


This particular giant, incidentally, bore marked similarity to another, that
of a giant man with double rows of teeth whose skeletal remains were dug up
on Santa Rosa Island, off the California coast. Subsequent research has
shown that he, or his descendants, feasted on the small elephants which once
lived on that island and which have vanished like the giants who ate them,
countless ages ago.


Near Crittenden, Arizona, in 1891, workmen excavating for a commercial
building came upon a huge stone sarcophagus eight feet below the surface. The
contractor called in expert help, and the sarcophagus was opened to reveal a
granite mummy case which had once held the body of a human being more than
twelve feet tall -a human with six toes, according to the carving of the
case. But the body had been buried so many thousands of years that it had
long since turned to dust. Just another silent witness to the truth of
Genesis, which tells us that there were giants in the earth in those
days, the excavation of over a dozen skeletons 8 to 12 feet tall, around the world, shocked archeologists.


These skeletons were positively human. Some of these skeletal remains are on Maui
in lava caves near Ulupalakua and Olowalu. An example of this is the "mysterious"
disappearance of more than 50 perfectly kept gigantic antediluvian skeletons
(between 10-14 feet tall) found in a cave in Arizona.

Earth Giants : over the years a number of gigantic human skeletons have been
unearthed. The most distinctive of these were the remains of some American
giants found in the 1880s at Tioga Point, near Sayre in Bradford County,
Pennsylvania, as recounted by Robert Lyman in Forbidden Land. Some other
examples include the following:

A decayed human skeleton claimed by eyewitnesses to measure around 3.28
metres (10 feet 9 inches tall), was unearthed by labourers while ploughing a
vineyard in November 1856 in East Wheeling, now in West Virginia.

A human skeleton measuring 3.6 metres (12 foot) tall was unearthed at
Lompock Rancho, California, in 1833 by soldiers digging in a pit for a
powder magazine. The specimen had a double row of teeth and was surrounded
by numerous stone axes, carved shells and porphyry blocks with abstruse
symbols associated with it.

Several mummified remains of red haired humans ranging from 2-2.5 metres
(6.5 feet to over 8 feet) tall were dug up at Lovelock Cave, (70 miles)
north-east of Reno, Nevada, by a guano mining operation. These bones
substantiated legends by the local Piute Indians regarding giants which they
called Si-Te-Cahs. For some reason scientists did not seem to want to
investigate these finds further so many of the bones were lost. Fortunately
one of the giant Lovelock skulls is still preserved today. It measures
almost 30cm (1 foot) tall and resides along with other various Lovelock
artefacts in the Humboldt Museum in Winnemucca, Nevada. Some of these
artefacts can also be found in the Nevada State Historical Society's museum
at Reno.



THE HUBBARD DISCOVERY:

In this magazine for September, 1923, we mentioned a reported discovery by
Mr. Samuel Hubbard, of remains of giants in the Grand Canyon of Arizona.
Owing to press unreliability, we did not notice this to a great extent. We
have now, however, obtained more knowledge on the subject, and there remains
no doubt that Mr. Hubbard has actually made a discovery composed of the
following parts:


(a) Petrified bodies of two human beings about 18 and 15 feet in height
respectively. One of these is buried under a recent rock fall which would
require several days' work to remove; the other, of which Mr. Hubbard took
photographs, is in a crevice of difficult accessibility. The bodies are
formed of a limestone petrification embedded in sandstone.


(b) An ancient beach, now sandstone, containing a great number of footprints
of a giant race, men, women and children; the prints of adults about 17 to
20 inches in length, and corresponding in size and shape to the Carson City
and Blue Ridge prints.

EVEN MORE GIANT RECORDS:

According to a press clipping, dated Nayarit, Mexico, May 14, 1926, Capts.
D. W. Page and F. W. Devalda discovered the bones of a race of giants who
averaged over ten feet in height. Local legends state that they came from
Ecuador. Nothing more has been heard of this, but that is not surprising;
the word "giant" will flutter the feathers of any scientist into rapid
flight, metaphorically speaking, in the opposite direction. So also with a
report from the Washington Post, June 22, 1925, and the New York
Herald-Tribune, June 21, 1925. A mining party, it is reported, found
skeletons measuring 10 to 12 feet, with feet 18 to 20 inches long, near
Sisoguiche, Mexico. The Los Angeles Times, October 2, 1927, says that
explorers in Mexico located large human bones near Tapextla, indicating a
race of "gigantic size." All this, if unfounded, would be straining
coincidence or imagination pretty far.


Press accounts say that the skeleton of a gigantic man, with head missing,
has been unearthed at El Boquin, on the Mico River, in the Chontales
district. The ribs are a yard long and four inches wide and the shin bone is
too heavy for one man to carry. "Chontales" is an Indian word, meaning "wild
men."

In the late 1950's during road construction in Homs southeast Turkey, Many
tombs of Giants were indeed unearthed. These tombs were 4 meters long, and
when enterd in 2 cases the human thigh bones were measured to be 47.24
inches in length. They calculated that the person who owned this Femur
probably stood at fourteen to sixteen feet tall. A cast of this bone is seen
at the Creationist museum in Texas.


Flavius Josephus, the noted Jewish historian of the first century A.D.,
described the giants as having "bodies so large and countenances so entirely
different from other men that they were surprising to the sight and terrible
to the hearing." And he adds that in his day, the bones of the giants were
still on display!

It appears that the Indians weren't ehr first to arrive in America. Perhaps we should identify who these Giants were and then call them the true title of Native Americans.

Perhaps we should identify who these Giants were and then call them the true title of Native Americans clone them for the NBA.

Yes. There are some in a museum in Ohio somewhere. I had an article with pictures at one time but, I can't locate it anymore. (There's something to these 'tall man' skeletons, I just don't know what.) BTW, some have two rows of teeth, for real.

It seems that people have been finding them for some time now. I don't remember hearing about this in school. Why has this been so hush hush all these years?

So the Indians weren't the first to be here? Did the Indians come here and conquer these (gentle) 'giants?' If so, why did they ever complain that this was their land first?

Genesis 6:1-4 (NIV): When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then the Lord said,. "My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be one hundred and twenty years.

The Nephilim were on the earth in those days- and also afterward- when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heros of old, men of renown.

Per my NIV Life Application notes, the Nephilim were a powerful race of Giants. If you continue to read the rest of the story, God then caused the flood 120 years later after these "sons of God" procreated with humans. Again, my NIV notes say some believe these sons of God to be fallen angels, or the sons of good Seth (sons of God) who intermarried with the decendants of evil Cain (daughters of men). The King James version describes Noah as a man "perfect in his generations," thus he was sparred from the great flood (Gen. 6:9).

The Nephilim? Im not a creationist but I think some of Genesis can be informative about ancient history if you read between the lines.

This, IMHO, is one of the most fascinating fields of study regarding human origin/creation. The traditional story of Noah and the flood is heavy on "man was doing wrong so God destroyed them" and light on explanation of who/what the Nephilim were and what role they played in the story. Either the common teachings of parts of the Bible have been dumbed-down for the sake of broader desimination, or a big piece of Earth's and man's history is being overlooked. Everyone knows about Noah and the flood, but say the word "Nephilim", and you get a lot of puzzled looks.

Seems highly improbable that so many examples have been found, yet are not locateable in a museum.

There are some artifacts of a very short race that had mines in the Appalachians. These are in the Smithsonian. No fossils have been found, but the mines and tools were too small for normal people.

You have to read these reports with a fifty pound salt block handy, Vann.

The report on the Kossuth Giants states that a team of anthropoligists, geologists and archaeologists was dispatched from Georg Von Podebrad College. Below are the ONLY TWO websites for this distinguished "college" that was able to field a "team" of scientists:

--------------------

First Google Search Results:

GEORG von PODEBRAD COLLEGE

Small private college in the Zoar, IA. The college is named after George of Podebrad (1420-71) who was the administrator (1448-58) and king(1458-71) of Bohemia. He was excommunicated by Pope Paul II in 1366. (See Columbia Viking Desk Encyclopedia p.476 ) President: Dr. Nickelous Klutie. Science Faculty:Dr. Thadeus Keltern (Professor of Zoology), Emile Protabello(Research Fellow) Musicology: Dr. Robert Paredes, Chair (vol. 3 #5:3; #6:8) Ghosts of Old Armory,The (vol.3 #5:9)

----------------------- and:

Second Google Search Results:

Georg von Podebrad College


    Founded in 1857 along the serene and scenic banks of the Cedar River in Zoar, Iowa, Georg von Podebrad College continues its tradition of academic excellence in the Liberal Arts with programs in Education, Music, Art, the Humanities, and Science.

     While larger universities offer little more than big reputations and big classes, GVP still provides the intimate nurturing that striving young minds need.


Georg von Podebrad College    Zoar, Iowa


Built in 1857, "Old Main" still plays
an active part in Student and Faculty Life.

----------------------- And the town of Zoar, Ohio:

Zoar is located in Tuscarawas between Bolivar and Mineral City on the banks of the Tuscarawa River near Fort Laurens State Memorial and Zoar Village Memorial. Located just off I77, on Hwy 212, south of Canton.

Statistics & Facts

The population of Zoar is approximately 177.
The approximate number of families is 74.
The amount of land area in Zoar is 1.424 sq. kilometers.
The amount of surface water is 0.236 sq kilometers.
The distance from Zoar to Washington DC is 269 miles.
The distance to the Ohio state capital is 96 miles. (as the crow flies)
Zoar is positioned 40.61 degrees north of the equator and 81.42 degrees west of the prime meridian.

---------------------

In short, Zoar, Ohio, is a wide spot in the road. Any room there for a college? Students? A crack team of scientists?

----------------------

Aside from these two direct references and references to the mythical "giants," GvP college seems to not exist... and if you blink as you pass on Interstate 77, you will have missed Zoar.

GIANT FOOTPRINTS:

In South Africa, a giant footprint of a woman measuring over 4 feet long has been carbon dated at aproximately 9 million years old. Pointing to the probability of this being a female human-like species' foot, proportionally the two-legged being would need to be some 30 feet tall! The local African people commonly refer to this as a highly revered and sacred site. Giants, twice the size of gorillas, were found in Java.

Since when has anyone been able to determine sex from footprints? Perhaps the "30ft. tall woman" was wearing highheels? Remains of her toenail polish? Carbon dating is only good for about 16,000 years maximum... so exactly how did they "date" the STONE (no carbon) FOOTPRINT at 9,000,000 years old?

I like the non sequitur about Javanese super Gorillas. The petrified remains of a giant were found in South Africa. A well-known anthropologist declared that these remains showed that these man's ancestors must have been giants.

If they found a midget would he have declared the remains showed "these man's" ancestors were little people?

Very funny...

"The Adena folk were unusually tall and powerfully built; women over six feet tall and men approaching heights of seven feet have been discovered. It would seem that a band of strikingly different people of great presence and majesty had forced their way into the Ohio Valley from somewhere about 1000 B.C. - Robert Silverberg "

The Adena People

There are Adena skulls in a museum somewhere in Ohio that have double rows of teeth.

The article noted that some were on display in a museum or 2 in Nevada.

It is interesting that so many have mysteriously disappeared.

Also, evidently the Grand Canyon ones are still in existence.

HISTORICALLY, Science has always ignored and denied that which was heretical. . . often for centuries. . . . perhaps longer.

This is so much fun... like shooting fish in a barrel...

Estimates for the actual size of these men range from 10 to 12 feet tall and over, weighing from 500 to 600 lbs.

Hmmmmm. These giants were really, really skinny. The ideal weight for a 6ft modern human is 200lbs (rounded). If these hypothetical giants were proportionate to modern humans, a 12 foot specimin would probably weigh in at 1600lbs... the CUBE of the size increase.

A fossicker searching the Winburndale River north of Bathurst discovered a large quartzitised fossil human molar tooth, far too big for any normal modern man. A similar find was made near Dubbo, N.S.W.

A WHAT was searching?

Even more impressive were fossil deposits found by naturalist Rex Gilroy around Bathurst. He excavated from a depth of 6 feet (2 m) below the surface a fossil lower back molar tooth measuring 67 mm. in length by 50mm. x 42 mm. across the crown. If his measurements are correct, the owner would have been at least 25 ft. tall, weighing well over 1,000 lbs!

Now, if those first giants were skinny, this guy is ridiculous! I guess, the "estimate" (pulled out of a very non-scientific hat) of "well over 1000 lbs!" is sort of accurate since this magnificent giant would really have weighed around 14,400 Lbs... a weight "well over 1000 lbs".

"The said gyant was buried four yards deep in the ground, which is now a corn field. He was four yards and a half long, and was in complete armour; his sword and battle-axe lying by him....his teeth were six inches long, and two inches broad...."

Let's see... "four yards and a half" is about 13-14 feet tall... we'll go with 14 to be generous. That makes him 2.33 times larger than a modern human of 6ft. If this report is accurate (and it does say it is a "True Report") then this giant's teeth were SIX INCHES long... but if he is properly proportioned, then a tooth from his mouth, scaled down to fit a modern human would be 2.56" Long... talk about buck-toothed!

15. In 1932, Ellis Wright found human tracks in the gypsum rock at White Sands, New Mexico. His discovery was later backed up by Fred Arthur, Supervisor of the Lincoln National Park and others who reported that each footprint was 22 inches long and from 8 to 10 inches wide. They were certain the prints were human in origin due to the outline of the perfect prints coupled with a readily apparent instep.

And exactly why would the supervisor of a South Australian National Park be considered an authority on footprints found in New Mexico?

19. The Catalina Islands, off California, are the home of dwarf mammoth bones that were once roasted in ancient fire pits. These were roasted and eaten by human-like creatures who were giants with double rows of teeth.

And exactly how was THAT determined... did they find the giants' double headed toothbrushes?

These skeletons were positively human. Some of these skeletal remains are on Maui in lava caves near Ulupalakua and Olowalu. An example of this is the "mysterious" disappearance of more than 50 perfectly kept gigantic antediluvian skeletons (between 10-14 feet tall) found in a cave in Arizona.

???? Who taught this writer how to put together a paragraph? Dumb question... the public school system committed this crime.

Giants and Battle

Europe · Allia, Battle of At the little river Allia, in 387 B.C., the Senone giants put the proud Roman army to a hasty, humiliating flight. Upon hearing the news of the defeat, practically the entire population of Rome fled the city. Shortly afterward, the revengeful giants burned Rome to the ground. · Cimmerian Giants The Cimbri or Cimmerians, after making their way overland by the northern route, occupied for a time the country above the Euxine or Black Sea, around the Palus Maeotidis. When they again felt the irresistible urge to roam, they continued westward, eventually settling east of the Rhine, in Germany. They afterward established themselves as far north as Denmark and also colonized Belgium. Acmon's hordes, meanwhile, having advanced by the southern route, first settled in Cappadocia and Galatia, then later on the southern shores of the Black Sea. From there they spread into Gaul, which today we call France, and also across Spain, where they assimilated with the Iberians.6 Being as prolific in Eu-rope as they had been in Asia, Gomer's oversized children soon overspread a vast territory—from the lands east of the Rhine to the Atlantic and from the Baltic Sea to the coasts of Spain. They also inhabited Switzerland and some northern parts of Italy, especially around the Adriatic. The Greek historian Pausanias called them the world's tallest people. Gerhard Herm, his modern counterpart, agrees. He describes them as "blond giants" who struck terror in the hearts of every foe, even in the mightiest of mighty Rome, which they fought several ferocious wars with and which they once captured, sacked, and burnt to the ground. At the utmost divergence from the mean, some Celts even stood to a colossal height, perhaps as tall as or taller than the nine-foot-nine Goliath, or even Og, who required a bed over thirteen feet long.

· Rhone River Battle In 105 B.C., when a large band of roving German giants advanced as far as Orange, two Roman armies, one under Caepio, the other under Manlius, confronted them at the river Rhone. In the resulting battle, only ten legionnaires and two generals escaped.

Australia · Bathurst In fossil in the 1930's deposits found around Bathurst from a depth of 6 feet below the surface a fossil lower back molae tooth was found. The owner would have been at least 25 ft. tall. Also found were huge stone artifacts -- clubs, pounders, adzes, chisels, knives and hand axes all of tremendous weight, scattered over a wide area weighing from 8 to 25 pounds, implements which only men of tremendous proportions could possibly have made and used. Estimates for the actual size of these men range from 10 to 12 feet tall and over, weighing from 500 to 600 lbs.

· Battle of Noreia In 113 B.C., Rome dispatched an army to check the migration of three hundred thousand Cimbri and Teutone warriors, plus their women and children who followed them in leather-covered wagons. Led by Papirius Carbo, the Roman legionnaires engaged these German giants in battle at Noreia in Styria and were annihilated by them.

Bavaria · Ænotherus In his Annals of Bavaria, Aventine writes that a giant named Ænotherus, who threw down whole battalions like mowing grass, fought on the Emperor Charlemagne's side. The huge warrior hailed from Turgan, near the Lake of Constance.

Morocco · At Agadir in Morocco, reports Peter Kolosimo, the French Captain Lafanechere "discovered a complete arsenal of hunting weapons including five hundred double-edged axes weighing seventeen and a half pounds, which were twenty times as heavy as would be convenient for modern man. To handle the axe at all one would need to have hands of a size appropriate to a giant with a stature of at least 13 feet

Rome · Pusio and Secundilla During his principate, Caesar Augustus (27 B.C.-A.D. 14) assigned two giants who towered over ten feet tall to lead the Roman armies into battle. "On account of this remarkable height," writes Pliny, the bodies of the two giants "were preserved in the tomb in Sallust's Gardens; their names were Pusio and Secundilla."

· Battle of Telamon In a decisive battle at Telamon in 225 B.C., Roman legionnaires by chance caught seventy thousand invading Celts between their two armies. That bloody day the Latins killed forty thousand of the giant warriors from across the Apennines and captured another ten thousand. Toltec

· The four gods created the giants who were very large men endowed with enough strength to uproot trees with their hands. They are called Quinametzin Huetlacame, which means large and deformed men. Nahuatl codexes go as far as to mention a king among the giants, Tlatlotl, "who built great things and was taken for a god." Another chronicle describes how Xelhua, another giant, built an artificial column "in the shape of a pyramid". The Codex Vaticanus 3738 depicts one of these giants

Perhaps we should identify who these Giants were and then call them the true title of Native Americans.
