Stone Builders, Mound Builders and the Giants of Ancient America

by TEDxTalks
Stone Builders, Mound Builders and the Giants of Ancient America | Jim Vieira at TEDxShelburneFalls

3 November 2012 | Vieira's research over the last 20 years has led him down a bizarre road of intrigue and mystery surrounding the races and built structures of Ancient America. Vieira has compiled thousands of accounts of giant skeleton reports from the New York Times, Smithsonian Ethnology Reports, American Antiquarian, Scientific American as well as town and county histories to make the case that the history of our past has not only been deliberately covered up, but is vastly different then what we are told.

Unnatural Selection

Uh oh, the double row of teeth and 6 toe syndrome ... ;)

Let's face it. Humans did NOT evolve by chance, but through direct and intelligent manipulation. Our seed is being repeatedly manipulated even to this very day by unnatural forces.

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different." ~CW

The people of Atlantis were giants

and they roamed the world. That is why giant skeletons are found on every continent.

I found this interesting....

"As Adam came forth from the hand of his Creator…He was more than twice as tall as men now living upon the earth…Eve was not quite as tall as Adam. Her head reached a little above his shoulders." (SG, Vol. 3 p.34).

"Adam's height was much greater than that of men who now inhabit the earth. Eve was somewhat less in stature;" (Patriarchs and Prophets, p.45).

That's apparently the term for what seem to be "out of place artifacts." (http://www.amazon.com/Sacred-Places-North-America-Destinatio...) I've always been fascinated by this subject, though I wasn't aware of the prevalence of such discoveries across America, including the Northeast. It seems clear there are major holes in our understanding of world history. I appreciate the guy's bringing his personal discoveries in New England to light. But I don't happen to like his attitude, and he jumps to conclusions with no basis whatsoever. While we obviously haven't been told the truth about America's history insofar as, for one, these stone mounds, it's as likely out of ignorance of how to explain them as a conspiracy to not give native Americans their due, no less when we don't even know who built those mounds. He also has no reason to believe the people who did build them were all about peace, love, and harmony, at least by today's standards. Some ancient peoples with advanced knowledge practiced human sacrifice and cannibalism. Btw, ever hear of Coral Castle? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coral_Castle

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir

Oh, we do think alike, mdefarge...

That he jumped to out of left field conclusions was my initial reaction, too. I do appreciate his work in this field and intend to find out more. I would not have known we'd been lied to even about this subject, had it not been for his work. Maybe he has other evidence that led him to what you and I consider baseless conclusions. I'm willing to look deeper into it.

Yeah this sure is one of those mysteries

OK so from the native side, there doesn't seem to be a strong consensus. They are "the old people from under the ground". Some of us believe they are us, some of us believe they were an entirely different species. One thing people seem to agree on is leave them alone. Don't disturb their earthworks and bones. There is an element of fear.

In some tribes they are not spoken of in words or even by gesture. You aren't even really supposed to THINK about them cause that will make their spirits curious and they will come around bringing something not good. And there it is. I don't want to say another word on that thought-line. I got enough troubles as it is.

But still it's something to wonder about and it leaves a bit of mystery in life. Why did they do as they did and where did they go? Who were these people communicating to? Clearly whatever they wanted, they wanted it a lot. Did they get it?

Maybe the one thing I can share was before Hopi got locked down, when us "bahanna" could still attend dances, there are Katchina that look for all the world like dudes in space suits and I was told no Katchina is in any way symbolic or alliterative, THIS IS EXACTLY THE WAY THESE PEOPLE APPEARED TO US. So basically there's been some freaky doings on this planet, won't even bother to try convincing you I understand what it means and if I ever find out I'll write a book about it.

Maybe just this one thing...there is this feeling of connection. Like these mound people are friends or family in some way or we are related by the Oyasin concept. If they were evil I'm sure we'd be having a lot more problems from them. The thing, the taboo about the deceased is a GENERAL PRINCIPLE. In GENERAL you don't want dead anything around. Causes troubles. We're supposed to let the dead move along in peace.

They are the people from under the ground. And there's supposed to be another order of being waiting it's time to emerge. We can "see" them sleeping under the ground but we have absolutely no clue what they will look like when they emerge or what their agenda will be.

Lotta stuff we don't know eh?

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

Food for thought:

Giants at some time in the recent past may not be so far fetched when you consider the bigfoot/yeti etc, legends world wide. Myths and legends usually stem from some distant truth, source, and get passed down for thousands of years or generations. They just tend to get things added to them and embellished over time.

Heck, some populations of Homo Heidelbergensis are reported to have been 7 or 8 feet tall. And only lived possibly 300,000 - 500,000 years ago.

And Gigantopithecus, was an ape that existed to as recently as one hundred thousand years ago. Up to 9.8 ft tall and 1200 Lbs.

Modern people have been recorded to be as tall as 8ft 11in. Robert Wadlow was the tallest known man in the world.

Many others come close:

Australopithecus was not taller than Homo Sapiens

Australopithecus males were approximately 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 100 pounds; females, 3 feet 5 inches tall and weighing about 62 pounds (Lucy was 3 feet 6 inches tall and weighted 62 pounds).

My bad. I corrected it.

I knew there was a doozie or two in the recent past. I just crossed the name.

Heidelbergensis (Hominid) allegedly had localized populations of 7 - 8 ft.


Gigantopithecus, (an ape) that existed to as recently as one hundred thousand years ago. Up to 9.8 ft tall and 1200 Lbs.


weekend watching

from 1956 a film about UFOs.. good to see how different we were as a society, yet we still have the same problems http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4bGTL...!

Giants are mentioned in the Old Testament

The giants were half fallen angels. One of the reasons God destroyed the world by flood. To stop the inbreeding. In the book of Daniel in the last days before the return of Christ, this activity of Nephilim the Bible calls it, the seed of the woman would be mixed with the seed of the creature. I think many call them Reptilians. I used to think it was pure madness the Reptilian stuff UNTIL I listened to Chuck Misler teaching called the return of the Nephilim. See the teaching, it's great!!! Talks about UFO's too and scientific studies, dementions of the supernatural and how the Nephilim can go into different dementions and crop circles and more. Good info!!

1 of 12 sessions : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Odfsxlm5Fp0

In the last few videos of the session it mentions how the giants will be here in end days. Or I think most likely regular looking Nephilim, some tall would be here in the day of the return of Christ.

the NBA?

The longer presentation is better

One thing that bothers me though. He fails to link the giants to the elaborate stone structures. All accounts of the giants discovery presented just alludes to earthen mounds, i.e. typical indian burial mounds.
That's very interesting about the copper mine. There must have been trade routes all over that used the copper.

Why is all this being covered up. This is bedrock proof of a very intelligent large civilization. There were cities of these people in N America. IMO, I think they were of the Mayan variety.

Also, why is the Smithsonian hiding all the evidence of these giants? And the true nature of the mounds?

We've been lied to. Our history books are junk. Somebody has been in the shadows trying to re-write the actual history for a long time.

did you know that ancient

did you know that ancient indo-european* people were the first to live in north america?

but you won't hear that in schools. we can't have the whole "native american claim to america" charade come crashing down, can we?

What the? Never heard about

What the? Never heard about this! They want everyone to believe "America" and the land never existed before Christopher Columbus. That it was a horrible place before Europeans, Democracy, the Constitution, etc. came to "save" it, etc, etc, etc...Hes right about his opinion at the end minus his belief in man made global warming.

Squares vs cubes & "On Being the Right Size"

http://irl.cs.ucla.edu/papers/right-size.html :

Let us take the most obvious of possible cases, and consider a giant man sixty feet high—about the height of Giant Pope and Giant Pagan in the illustrated Pilgrim’s Progress of my childhood. These monsters were not only ten times as high as Christian, but ten times as wide and ten times as thick, so that their total weight was a thousand times his, or about eighty to ninety tons. Unfortunately the cross sections of their bones were only a hundred times those of Christian, so that every square inch of giant bone had to support ten times the weight borne by a square inch of human bone. As the human thigh-bone breaks under about ten times the human weight, Pope and Pagan would have broken their thighs every time they took a step. This was doubtless why they were sitting down in the picture I remember. But it lessens one’s respect for Christian and Jack the Giant Killer.

I'm seeing lots of words in substitution for evidence and very few giant bones.

And humans have double rows of teeth, they're just situated vertically instead of horizontally, and lost in youth.

Not saying his supposition is impossible, but support should contain more than effortlessly embellishable eyewitness accounts.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Where is he supposed to get

Where is he supposed to get the evidence? The stuff was given to the Smithsonian and/or stolen over a hundred years ago.

all of it ever.

You understand how one could use this explanation for literally any thing real or not, thus why it is not acceptable.

What motive could there be to hide this information? What would be gained? What would change?

Liken to what the Spaniards did to my home country, my native...

culture. Religion as a weapon. Assimilated and ruled over us, with fear.

Here's an interesting parallel - pre-Maori NZ

Jim Vieira gave us an excellent exposure of the revisionist archaeological history we are force-fed here in America. By bringing evidence of the massive institutional corruption, he makes sense of the inane interpretations of a major number of sites that are assigned different values here than were found in Europe, though they have striking similarities. What has been done by those entrusted with relics, bones and records ought to alarm everyone.

Martin Doutre, a New Zealand historian, tells the same story when it comes to abundant evidence of a pre-Maori culture that once thrived there; what led to their demise; and what is being covertly done to erase and destroy all record of their existence, even to purposely destroying bones that confirm their distinction from the Maoris! Over an hour long, this video takes you to caves and structures that possess amazing geometrically-built, and astronomically-aligned, architecture.

So Goliath must've been a "Native" American...and could've been

a good guy, perhaps (who traveled to the Middle East). The biblical "David & Goliath" story could be part of this "paradigm" as we we're "told"...an ancient propaganda.

David, quite likely was...a "Zionist" (so as the story).

Bump for TRUTH here..am ALL for it!

that's quite a leap you are making there


Quite a leap..well, so as this revelation. One thing's for sure.

We'll NEVER know the REAL TRUTH nor the "paradigm" makers will reveal it to us...will we.

You'd probably never heard of the "other" story between Jesus & Mary Magdalene..and ancient France (aka Jesus Bloodline).

Baigent, Leigh & Lincoln...

"Holy Blood, Holy Grail". Still can't fathom how the court ruled in favor of Dan Brown. When I read "The DaVinci Code", all I could think of was "I read all this already in 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail'".

Fascinating stuff.

Fascinating stuff.

Read Genesis chapter 6. These

Read Genesis chapter 6. These giants are the nephilim. They were the offspring of Angels and human women. This is the reason God sent the great flood. The book of Enoch tells about the Nephilim in greater detail. Also check out Steve Quayles's site. It goes into depth on the Giants. www.stevequayle.com

Thanks Steve
