      Simple, because that's a well known hoax.

            roll apparently the thought of a discussion is too much for you as usual. I will be excited the day you form thoughts and share them with others.

              Oh, I see, you wish to toss about hoaxes for thought and discussion, wondering why we don't talk about them more often.

              That's your idea of forming thoughts and sharing. lol

          Is it the scientific aproach to disclaim everything that they already do not Know!

              Some would think so!

        If they were real findings "we" would be talking about them more.

          There are documented cases by creditable people like Sir Frances Drake finding people over 9 feet tall in San Julian. Other explorers as well. There are also cases here in America in the west from the Piutes warring with the Si-Te-Cah. All over the world there are stories like this, even if half of them wre fakes it would still leave to reason that some of these stories of communitites of giants should be true shouldn't it?

            We have people today and in recent times with a case of giantism. It is a problem with the thyriod at an early age if I remember correctly. So I don't doubt that a few tall people have been found. That really doesn't make a case for there being a tribe or group of giants living somewhere.

            Throughout history we have stories of giants, from the Norsemen to Noah. It is a common theme it many stories.

        Some religous guy posted a video on youtube of lots of giants fossils and skeletons.

        One of the skeletons in the middle of the video had a giant revolver by his hand.

        I laughed for weeks.

        Evolution works in its own way. Natural selection apparently is the battle of the strongest to survive. Perhaps what determined our size is not winning the battle nowadays. The human race might just end up being midgets in a million years time.

      I would assume they are hoaxes. Nobody shut up for months when they found the hobbit sized fossils. They would react the same if we had evidence of giants. What would be the point of hiding it?

        lol I heard a crazy theory just on that subject but I'm not posting it. It's nuts!

          Post it. I'm interested. I love crazy theories. smile

          If it makes you feel any better, I'll tell you my theory on the little people. When I read Lord of the Rings, I didn't get the impression the elves were the size of men. I thought they were smaller. If you remember, they sailed away in the end. I wondered if the bones they found were the descendents of the elves. Which is silly, of course. Tolkien made it all up, but I enjoyed running with that thought for a while.

            Captain Redbeardposted 6 years agoin reply to this

            This whole website is the theory. If you read it all and then think about the giants in context of being half fallen angel "demonic" beings and half human and then think about the evil side of the spirit world being in secret dealings with the American government than it seems reasonable to assume that when evidence of their "forefathers" turns up they want to get rid of the evidence. Have fun poking around on there!
