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.

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."

Fake

Fake

just like

the Bible

Bob, if you never made

Bob, if you never made another post here ever again... no one would notice or care.

Can't you spend your time on something more productive other than these idiotic threads?

Yes

We should all spend our time making up stories about how the Government brain washed 20 year olds to make them shoot up schools and movie theaters. That is so much more productive.

Go Eat Some

velveeta and stop reading posts you don't like.

skippy

Same to you

Why even comment

deacon's picture

speak for yourself

you do not speak for me or anyone else here
for that matter
what i do find really funny is the fact you came onto this post
read it,commented on it,so you wasted your time as well(as you called it)
as for me.i will read the things i want,and look at the things i want
now if there was a post i didn't like,guess what i would do?
why i wouldn't read it
deacon

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

WHAT!?

Are you having a bad day, Velveeta?

I like Bob-45's posts--

but your post says more about you than about Bob--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

"no one would notice or care"? That is hurtful and untrue. :(

This post is posted under "weird stuff" for heaven's sake. I mean I sure love the usual "14 threads about the same topic" like we usually do right? "Rand Paul is a traitor, no wait Gary Franchi is a traitor, no wait Jack Hunter is a traitor." Fun stuff. /s

EGADS. I've made 300+ posts here (http://www.dailypaul.com/myposts/12371), mostly "unweird political stuff" - but some spiritual stuff because that's just how I'm made - funny no one ever seems to notice or care about me either...must be all the eleven year olds running the site down.

Funny, in real life, I really did the Ron Paul "legwork" though - up to 20+ hours a day to where I would awaken with the "ctrl" key imprinted in my forehead. I'm the one who handed out hundreds of Constitutions and raked the "fake South Carolina GOP Christians" over the coals to mine and my families detriment (since I am an elected member of the SCGOP + we are one of the most fluoridated + aggressive neocon states in the U.S.). I'm the one who spent loads of cash and time to make sure SC/DP had video and graphics of Ron Paul when he came back after 2008 (and learned how to use a camera and Adobe Elements/Photoshop to ensure that).

One of my greatest moments of my life and a rare find here on the DP is a video with a small group of us and Ron Paul, in private as he awaited his plane with his family, "just hanging out" - was posted here under a "spiritual title" so many people missed it completely because "no one would notice or care" - ha ha ha. You just never know what a post means to someone or what real content may be buried there so I'd not be so heavy handed in your criticism. Peace.

Thank you for your kind words. Know it or not, you are a ...

good "Gnostic Christian" (assuming you consider yourself a Christian". Gnostics questioned EVERYTHING. They believed that was their moral responsibility; and, the only way you can "question everything" is to expose people to it and encourage healthy debate.

That definition of a Gnostic

That definition of a Gnostic Christian is nonsensical by definition. If a person really felt compelled to "question everything", they'd eventually question their faith, and lacking evidence, they'd need to abandon that as well.

Velveeta, if everyone at the DAILY PAUL was as big...

a hypocrite as you, I would do just that.

Besides, YOU would miss me, as you would then have to seek out someone else to persecute.

You are a sad, sad little person.

Actually, I'm generally quite

Actually, I'm generally quite cheerful. I am also considerably larger (vertically) than the majority of people.

You're not a dummy, which I why I am so disappointed in the quality of your threads. Is there really nothing else in the world you can find worth posting? Aliens? Jesus? Conspiracies? Please, man. Please!

Giant Skeleton Hoax:

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

http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/2010/08/03/were-gia...

There's a picture of the real photo and the photoshopped one there. Can't speak for the other photos, but it sure looks like a hoax to me. You were had.

Joη's picture

I did, that's why I know the images in your OP are fake

and newspaper clippings are effortlessly embellishable when real bones would do fine.

I'm glad you feel fine promoting known fakes, but I don't.

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

I saw your evidence they are fakes. It is inconclusive.

The old newspaper articles confirm skeletons were discovered BEFORE modern photographic technology and one of them is from THE NEW YORK TIMES, a paper once known as the best in the world.

You are the type of person who would have stoned anyone who suggested a "nonliving" entity could reproduce by taking over the cell of a body before viruses and prions became part of the medical mainstream.

Joη's picture

clearly we have different definitions of inconclusive

Images in your OP are provable forgeries. This is not inconclusive.

So, do you correct your OP, as not to mislead the gullible? No. You move the goal posts and now provide a series of newspaper clippings of giant skeletons found, which I agree is a more interesting subject to discuss, as human giantism has occurred, making some humans slightly larger by a few feet (but not add digits or reorient baby teeth, or any of the other anomalies cited). Do you put this in your OP, after correcting the known forgeries? Still no. I can only conclude you have very little respect for people here if you're willing to lie to them to get them to consider alternative viewpoints. I find that approach damaging overall.

I have nothing against alternative viewpoints. But claiming "alternative viewpoints" does not grant artistic license to lie or exempt one from the sin of omission.

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

I'm not saying I believe things like this either way but there

are examples of really large people throughout history. There's even a reference to giants/nephilim

Here's an example of someone from recent past.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Wadlow

As for your debunk.. If you'll look at some of the pictures, not all of them were supposedly 60 feet tall. I believe some of them are possible.

Hell I don't know..

30 feet is the maximum height I read.

Even those violate the "laws of anatomy," because the human leg cannot support a height greater than 12 feet, at least according to my old biology teacher, who was one of the smartest people I've ever met.

However, stories of giants are reported by many ancient cultures. One explanation, which leads back to the "hollow earth theory," is that gravity conditions were different in ancient times. This could also explain the Asian "myths" of "flying humans," as dramatized in films such as "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon".

Sorry if my earlier response was too curt. The last thing I want to do is put out misinformation. If at all possible, I seek out multiple sources before reporting anything. However, I feel the material should "stand on its own" and not require me defending myself; which, unfortunately, happens far too often at this "liberty" website. Please read my post, "Why I post 'weird stuff' at the DAILY PAUL", if you have not already.

There are no laws of anatomy really..

There are only laws to anatomy of our particular makeup.. There are plenty of examples of hardier life and even examples of hardier life within species over time.

30 feet.. meh.. I don't know about that. One would think that there would be numerous skeletons if it were true at any size.

Again I'm not passing judgement, I'm just saying. That doesn't rule out a mutation or that they might have been scarce. Hell who knows.

I do not recall any photographs, but I do remember...

Charlton Heston saying in "Mysterious Origins of Man: Forbidden Archeology" that giant remains had been discovered and reported around the world for centuries. He also produced a photograph of a human footprint a couple of meters from dinosaur tracks in the same rock strata and interviewed the archeologist. However, the most amazing thing I saw in the video were machined spheres perfectly resembling Iapetus (Saturn's largest moon) in rock strata data at 2.8 BILLION years.

If you could produce any of what you've said there,

I'm open minded enough to check it out.

OOPART

things like the spheres, baghdad batteries, etc... are called OOPART (Out Of Place Artifacts)

If I remember right Giants came from the word Gigantes (earthborn?)that came from the word Nephilim (those who from heaven came down?).

Again off memory the Nephilim were the Children of earth women and "angels" who "left their first estate" (bodies?).

I've read the Nephilim were the things that came down, but I don't think the old texts read that way, the Nephilim/Gigantes were the hybrid Children of Human/Spirit intercourse/engineering, not the "angels" themselves. The hybrids were gibborim and nephilim.

From what I remember.
