I have been researching the giants of old for several years and I this is what I know……although mainstream science denies the existence of giants there is, seemingly, much evidence to the contrary.
Many historical accounts of giants exist. One of the oldest references to giants is found in the bible, in the Book of Genesis. 6:1;
"And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown"
Everybody knows of Goliath the giant or Og the giant, who, according to the Bible, was an Amorite king of Bashan, but deeply buried in the biblical record, several "tribes" or groups of giants are named and we are told that there were 36 tribes consisting of 450,000 individuals. Here, you can reference for yourself,
the 36 Tribes of Giants mentioned in the Bible:
There are also 21 individual Giants mentioned, by name, in the Bible:
Adonizedec – King of Jerusalem
Agag – King of the Amalakites
Gog and Magog
Hoham – King of Hebron
Horam – King of Gezer
Jabin – King of Hazor
Jobab – King of Madon
Og of Bashan
Ogias – Og's father
Sihon – King of the Amorites
Another antiquated reference to the giants is the Book of Enoch which was found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. The most important of these is actually called The Book of Giants. Enoch lived before the Flood, during a time when the world was very different. Human beings lived much longer apparently, for one thing; another difference was that angels and humans interacted freely — so freely, in fact, that some of the angels begot children with human females. The wicked angels and the giants began to oppress the human population and to teach them to do evil. For this reason God determined to imprison the angels until the final judgment and to destroy the earth with a great flood.
Admittedly the internet is rife with hoaxes on this subject but with common sense and subjective analysis one can soon distinguish these obvious hoaxes from literally hundreds of believable written accounts of giants in modern times.
There has also been archeological 'finds'; though a common theme amongst these modern finds is the deliberate intervention of the Smithsonian and the subsequent sequester of all evidence even remotely related to the existence of this giant race of hominins. However, there is still a plathora of evidence out there if you dig deep enough.
I'll give you a couple of examples of recent discoveries where evidence still exists and you can make up your own mind….
Roy Chapman Andrews (Photographer – National Geographic) took this photograph of 7 foot five inch man in 1922 in Ulaanbaatar (the land of Ghengis Khan). This photograph was never published in the magazine however.
This photo of a fossilized Irish giant' was taken at a London rail depot, and appeared in the December 1895 issue of Strand Magazine. The giant was allegedly dug up by a Mr Dyer while prospecting for iron ore in County Antrim (Ireland).It was 12 ft 2 in (3.71 m) tall, weighed 2 tonnes, and had 6 toes on its right foot. After being exhibited in Dublin, it was brought to England and exhibited in Liverpool and Manchester Google fossilised irish giant. (Take note, this mummy is leaning against a railway box car!)
A giant finger which was discovered in Egypt in 1988 allegedly came from a giant mummy found in graves around Giza pyramids.
The finger was almost 16 inches long and is estimated to have been from the hand of a being that would have stood around 16 feet in height. This picture were taken in 1988. The finger was later stolen. There are reputed to be giant human mummies in Egypt that have been hidden by archaeologists.
The Paiute Indians have a legend about their ancestors and red-haired giants. These giants, known as Si-Te-Cah, used to kill and eat the Paiute tribes. Though the Si-Te-Cah were small in numbers, they posed a dire threat to the Paiute, who were beginning to settle the area. Legend has it that the Paiute cornered and forced the giants underground, into a cave system, piled brush over the entrance, and set it on fire with flaming arrows, extinguishing the Si-Te-Cah for good.
In the 1800s this cave was known as Horse Shoe Cave but is now called Lovelock Cave. Lovelock cave is located around 20 miles South of Lovelock, Nevada. In 1911 bat guano harvesters started working in this same cave. After digging out four feet of guano they found many broken arrows that the Indians had fired into the cave as well as other interesting artifacts, and yes, they found red-haired giants. Even in the shrunken mummified condition the skeletons ranged in height from 8 feet to just under 12 feet.
In this case some of the artifacts actually remain. Pictured above is a giant jawbone with a human cast for size comparison. Below you can see the unusually large skulls of these giants. They are in the Humboldt Museum at Winnemucca Nevada and in the Nevada State Historical Society’s museum at Reno.
You probably already know about the traditions of head binding and Indian cradle boards. You should know that head binding and cradle boarding can change the shape of a skull but it cannot change the capacity of a skull. The skulls shown above have from two to two and a half times the brain capacity of a normal human skull. Similar skulls have been found all over the world, including in Bolivia, France, Norway, Malta, Egypt, northern Iraq, Siberia, South Africa (the so-called "Boskop Man") and Vanuatu in Oceania.
