big difference between "in" and "on"...

if i were to say "there is a giant ON you" what would that mean?
what if i said, "there is a giant IN you"? that could mean different things.. such as, you have a strong will or you are giving birth to a giant, etc...

there were giants IN THE EARTH in those days... not ON THE EARTH.

But... o is next to i on the keyboard... so it could be a typo. ;)

there were giants in the earth on those days.
there were giants on the earth in those days
there were giants on the earth on those days
there were giants in the earth in those days.

all of which mean completely different things.

which is the accurate one? in \ in, on \ in, in \ on, on \ on?

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

Tell me ...

Why does this matter ?

Goliath

2Sa 21:20 And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant.

1Ch 20:6 And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot: and he also was the son of the giant.

1 Samuel 17:2-7 2 And Saul and the men of Israel were gathered together, and pitched by the valley of Elah, and set the battle in array against the Philistines. 3 And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them. 4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 And he had an helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass. 6 And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of brass between his shoulders. 7 And the staff of his spear was like a weaver's beam; and his spear's head weighed six hundred shekels of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him.

cubit: appox 18"= 9 ft http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Cubit

span: a unit of length corresponding to this distance, commonly taken as 9 inches (23 cm). http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/span?s=t

I Do Find This Interesting

There are apparently over a thousand documented cases of skeletons found in places like "Indian burial mounds" that are over 7 feet tall. Many of them are reported to have had double rows of teeth. It bothers me that most of them have been taken by the Smithsonian never to be seen again.

On another note, when this subject was recently brought up amongst some friends, the grand daughter of one of the robber barons said her dad had double rows of teeth. No lie...

Several cultures discuss the existence of ancient giants!

-Obviously the bible as the OP stated above.
-The ancient Greeks. The cyclops were giants. Also the city Mycenae is said to created by giants.
-The ancient Hindus. Ancient texts describe giant beings in the Ramayan and the Mahabharat.

Goliath Was A Real Giant Standing About 9 Feet Tall

Mythological Jack and the Bean Stock: Taken from the actual storied fight between David and Goliath...

Fee-fi-fo-fum!! You mean...

"beanstalk"

not

"bean stock"

yummmm bean stock

that sounds tasty

As wicked93gs said

Maybe the "giants" were just a tribe of 7' or 8' tall people. After all, a seven foot tall person pretty much *is* a giant from the perspective of someone who was say, only 5'4" or so.

As for the photos, they're fairly well-done photoshops. I know at least one is for a fact because I've seen the original picture several times (a man looking at a mastodon skeleton...er, "giant").

I'm not discounting the possibility of ancient "giant" peoples (as in say, 7' to 9'), but not of the fee-fi-fo-fum variety. After all, it's not as if Homo Sapiens were the only hominids to ever exist. We've only been the dominant hominids for about 30,000 to 200,000 years, depending on the evidence you believe, and your opinion on whether or not Neanderthals attempted to civilize themselves before Sapiens did (jury still seems to be out on that one).

Norse mythology also speaks quite a bit about giants, although Norse mythology is seldom literal...

A signature used to be here!

What do you believe is a more imminent threat...

Giants or our own out-of-control politicians?

fine, ignore my attempt to characterize

Anyone listen to Coast to Coast last night 12-17-12?

At one point they were talking about indian giants & mounds of Illinois. George knew about them. The caller said, (refering to her younger years) the giant indians were stacked up in big petrified piles or mounds.

George kept refering to them as, not sure of the spelling, "ka hopa or kahoopa or possibly kahupa". They refrenced to the smithsonian as (possibly?) destroying the sites/area?

Anyone know any more about this? Anyone else ever been there?

I'm pretty sure the giants

I'm pretty sure the giants that the Bible talks about were supposedly the spawn of humans and demons procreating.

A Species With Amnesia

Graham Hancock says that "we are a species with amnesia." I would agree with that statement. We have no idea what actually happened before ancient times (3000 bc).

There have been real giants

There have been real giants found in the US, but they were between 7 and 9 feet tall. Jim Vieria has collected info on it. Skeletons were sent to the Smithsonian but were never seen again.

I belive so.....

and quite probably taller. Makes me wonder if these types had animal or gorilla like strength on top of they're size?

Gorilla's have 5(?) X strength of a human. Could you imagine that wraped up in some one that's 10ft tall?

ive been told they're fake, but ive been told a lot of stories.

there are many recipes of chemicals in my human brain waiting to signal the chemical of last resort to engage terms of plausible deniability.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right. -Henry Ford

As to whether these

As to whether these particular photos are fake I couldnt say one way or the other. That being said, giant skeletons have been found for hundreds of years(some larger than others). The bible of course talks about giants existing before the flood mainly(with a few after...such as Goliath). The bible even gives one of the main reasons for the flood was to wipe them out....they were wicked and had a corrupting influence on humanity....also known as "men of renown" likely a basis for the greek mythology...the gods always being large in stature but with the same petty infighting as humans. While of course its hard to verify through independant sources...much of what is written in the bible has been verified to be true through other sources...so its quite possible that a tribe(or tribes) of giants did exist. There is never a big deal made of giant skeletons when they are found however simply because it does not mesh well with accepted evolutionary theory. The idea of giants is ridiculed in those circles and professional reputations would be at risk, so any skeletons found will just be buried, or at best blamed on mutation as a freak. I am not saying there was a tribe of 60foot giants...but it is quite possible there was a tribe of 9 foot giants....which seems exceptionally tall if the average height of a man at the time was 5'5".

Might explain some big things in the world

like Stone Henge, Easter Island, the Pyramids and you can add to the list.

There are some interesting Native American stories about red haired giants and the discovery of their skeletal remains in America, Peru, and also Hawaii, and many other places!

"It should be noted that there have been hundreds of giant discoveries in the USA that have been either ignored or taken into custody by the Smithsonian never to be seen again. (WHY? What are the elite of the world hiding?)

The Incas actually had kings that were giants and had red and blond hair. In the Gold Museum in Lima you can still see the clothing and head of an Incan king who stood an easy 10 feet tall. His golden robe is 8 feet long and did not touch the ground when he wore it. His gold gloves are twice as long as my hands. His dried and mummified head is easily twice the size of mine and I'm not a little person. There are two giants and their belongings in the Gold Museum in Lima Peru. Everywhere you go in Peru there are giant skulls and skeletons. Many of the skulls are not normal looking either, and they are not all thousands of years old. In most cases we are talking hundreds of years."
