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?
Therefore, I shall "post" it once more"
Pull it or even Ban me if you must.......
I do not understand the "offensiveness" of these pictures

Genesis, 6th chapter:(Paraphased) "In those days giants walked the earth"
Well, it looks to me like there are a few still around....
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:
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)
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.
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.
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?
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.
