Caution: Giant Crossing

Biblical giants made for a fun article to write, but I wasn’t satisfied to just show you corroborating scripture written by multiple biblical authors describing the same race mentioned by similar names as even older non-Abrahamic cultures.

No, there’s much more to this talk of giants. Archeological finds might back the conclusion that giants walked the earth and might still. Other cultures far more recently have accounts of gigantic people. And what sort of biological factors would play a role in their existence?

Almost all photos of giant bone discoveries originate from an early 2000′s photomanipulation contest held by the Worth1000 website, and were marked as such. People later removed these marks and wrote hoax articles about astounding finds around the world, from Saudi Arabia to Greece and beyond.

One valid find, which you might visit for yourself in Privado Ritos Andinos Museum in Peru, is indeed a giant skull, but the 20-inch-tall torso connected to it is disproportionately about the same size as the skull. It is an unusual creature, but far from a giant.

Why do I show you hoaxes and oddities while telling you giants are real? Well, with any subject this strange, there is a heavy layer of nonsense to be discredited before one usually begins to know truth from fiction.

So how about a reference that could be either? Emperor Maximinus Thrax ruled for three years over Rome after ascending ranks as a barbarian soldier of contested citizenship. He is recorded by a few early historical sources, most notably the Historia Augusta and Thrax’s contemporary, Herodian. The Historia Augusta is a dubious source, having a mixture of valid and contested points throughout. A fictitious authority therein named Crodus cites Thrax as standing at 8 feet and six inches, or 2.5 meters tall. This would be unbelievable if there weren’t other sources making similar statements.

Herodian, who is much more accredited as a valid historian of Thrax’s time, and having lived in the same period as Thrax, describes the Emperor as follows, “He was in any case a man of such frightening appearance and colossal size that there is no obvious comparison to be drawn with any of the best-trained Greek athletes or warrior elite of the barbarians.” It is said that Thrax wore his wife’s bracelet as a thumb ring, one of the several hints that he had acromegaly, which enlarges several features and makes people look like Andre the Giant.

One of many other ancient accounts of giants in the world comes from Ferdinand Magellan. In his circumnavigation of the globe, an astounding feat of that era, he encountered what he called giants, the Tehuelche of Patagonia in the southern portion of South America. Magellan’s crewman and the writer of this account was Antonio Pigafetta, a very short fellow as most Spaniards of the time were, claimed these new friends stood up to ten feet tall!

This may have been true, and subsequent generations developed less dramatic statures, or he may have been exaggerating by several feet. Various explorers later checked his claims in their own visit to the Tehuelche, and towards the end of these, a British expedition said these people averaged at about six feet, six inches tall. They were, in fact, one of the tallest population groups in history, but they would only seem as giants to those whose own national height would have been much lower.

I’ll be exploring much more of this in coming weeks when we can have a look at more diverse accounts of giants among cultures worldwide, as well as what may be giant architecture such as the cities described in their biblical legends. I will also discuss the physicality of giants, because being that big may come with as many complications as it does advantages.

    I always wondered about the height of the giants, and how tall or well built they may have been… or how to tall does one have to be, to be labelled a giant….

    Its interesting as well, in some of the accounts of the Anunnaki expeditions on Earth, pure blood Anunnaki children being born on Earth were maturing much faster in growth than they would have if they were on Nibiru, I think it was related to Earths cycles and the Sun (Sol). It was said that ” Who on Nibiru in diapers would still be, on Earth became a child; Who on Nibiru began to crawl, when on Earth born was running around”…
    I remember reading a story from Irish mythology, were a child born to one of the deities grew so quickly that by the age of seven he was the size of a 14-year-old… some of Irish mythology is similar to the Anunnaki myths, but with different names, and I remember one account describing the child like a giant, I found it very interesting……….. :smile:

    The Giants of Old are no more legend, as you said they have their biblical references as well as eyewitness accounts from thousands of years ago. The Bible isn’t all either, there’s a litany of other ancient texts that also make reference to these gigantic entities of yore.

    Great information presented here, thank you.

    What an incredible sight, the bible also says as it was then so it will be when a Christ arrives… Guess what time it is!!!
