Something that I have always been curious about is to ask whether the stories, legends, and myths of which we hear about human like giants from past history could really be true. When I was younger, I was absolutely fascinated or even a little obsessed with the occult, esoteric, the paranormal, and the supernatural.
I recently was bored not being able to sleep and I came across an interesting documentary from Youtube which seems to suggest the theory that giants really did exist in human history’s past.
In this post, I will be using and outlining all the important information found from the YouTube video of a documentary done on giants or extremely tall statured Human-like beings. It is “ANCIENT GIANTS existed – Best Full Documentary-HD”. The video uploader goes by the name “Endza50·”. The entire video uploaded to Youtube is around 50 and a half minute long.
It would seem that throughout history people have been telling stories about super-tall human like beings. The most famous giant would be from the bible with Goliath. What some people might not know is that Goliath was actually 1 of 5 brothers and he was part of a group known as the Philistines.
Even in the most published book in human history, the Holy Bible, there is verses which talk about the fact that when the human race was in its infancy, there were giants that roamed the earth. Ex. Chapter 6, Verse 4.
So are we supposed to believe in these ideas of ancient races of extreme tall statured humans up to even 20 feet tall which roamed the earth?
Side note: In the story from the Bible, David did not actually kill Goliath with his sling, but only stunned Goliath enough to make him fall down and knock him to a daze long enough so that David took Goliath’s weapon and then cut off his head.
In the documentary, which I watched with a level of scepticism, it seems that the Mayans and Incans both held beliefs in the legend or myth that a race of giants giants existed before their civilization which would be extinguished by a great flood. They viewed these giants before them as gods and created stone figures in the shape of these giants.
It seems that one of the most common features found in giant skeletons found even in the Northeastern Region of the USA was that they had double rows of teeth. This seems to be one of those things that would be written again and again in any newspaper clippings one finds from the 19th and early 20 century which reported these cryptozoological skeleton findings. Sometimes there is also claim that the giants had 6 fingers and 6 toes.
One speaker named Jim Marrs says that there is a legend made by the Paiutes, a native american tribe indigenous to the Nevada region. From the blog HERE…
The Paiutes, a Native-American tribe indigenous to parts of Nevada, Utah and Arizona, told early white settlers about their ancestors’ battles with a ferocious race of white, red-haired giants. According to the Paiutes, the giants were already living in the area.
The Paiutes named the giants “Si-Te-Cah” that literally means “tule-eaters.” The tule is a fibrous water plant the giants wove into rafts to escape the Paiutes continuous attacks. They used the rafts to navigate across what remained of Lake Lahontan.
According to the Paiutes, the red-haired giants stood as tall as 12-feet and were a vicious, unapproachable people that killed and ate captured Paiutes as food. [Overestimation is to be expected.]
The Paiutes told the early settlers that after many years of warfare, all the tribes in the area finally joined together to rid themselves of the giants.
One day as they chased down the few remaining red-haired enemy, the fleeing giants took refuge in a cave. The tribal warriors demanded their enemy come out and fight, but the giants steadfastly refused to leave their sanctuary.
Frustrated at not defeating their enemy with honor [underestimation is to be expected], the tribal chiefs had warriors fill the entrance to the cavern with brush and then set it on fire in a bid to force the giants out of the cave.
The few that did emerge were instantly slain with volleys of arrows. The giants that remained inside the cavern were asphyxiated.
This story seems to have originated by a ethnic Paiute named Sarah Winnemucca (later added the last name Hopkins probably signifying she married a white man) who wrote a book about the history of her people entitled “Life Among the Piutes“.
The whole documentary was very interested and a few very notable, but more infamous writers of the paranormal and conspiracy theorists like Erich Von Daniken, Bruce Rux, David Childress, Brad Steiger, and Jim Marrs all tell some type of anecdotal story showing that the USA short history, many people in the 19th century claimed to have dug up skeletons which are of people who are of extremely tall stature. During the 19th century, the white settlers would go into the midwest and find big mounds which was believed by some local native americans to be graves of ancient giants. When the white settler’s excavated and dug up the mounds to see what was inside, they did seem to find 7-10 feet tall skeletons inside.
A famous case if when men in Bridal Veils Falls, California supposedly found a wall filled with ancient writings. They broke the wall hoping to find gold and treasure but found instead a tall female skeleton holding onto a baby. It seems that similar findings are also in Texas and Nevada. Not just in the USA, during the 19th century, anyone with a shovel was digging into the ground and people fond giant skeletons also in Greece, the Middle East, Turkey, and many other countries around the world.
The 2nd famous case is when people in 1912 went to a cave in Lovelock Nevada to get bat guano but instead found duck decoys, baskets, hunting & fishing equipment, and mummified red-haired giants around 6’6″-7’0”. Sarah Winnemucca in her book tells of this story and that the giants with red hair came from that specific cave. It is said that the people who excavated the cave manage to bring 60 skeletons out of it but none are found today.
The documentary makes a very big push in making the viewer think that there is a high possibility that giants did exist in human’s past.
If I was to make a guess, I would say that it is not unreasonably to believe that maybe there were tribes in human history who chose to selective breed their people for tall stature, to give them a sort of physical edge against their neighbors who might be warring with them. Tall stature has been associated with increased strength and power, and there might be people who have tried in history to get the tall people in their tribe to breed and then after a few generations, the average height of the entire tribe increased. When these tribes then faced warring outsiders, the outsiders would see these people who are so much bigger and be intimated by their size and run away.
While I am sure that a good size percentage of all the documented and written stories throughout hisotory about giants skeletons were hoaxes and scams done by people to have fun or cheat people out of money, it is a little hard for me to believe that all of the cases about giants skeletons were hoaxes. I would assume that at least one of the stories was based on true findings, and that would be enough evidence to show that in human history, there were some groups of people who ended up being much taller than the other groups of people/tribes around them.
