Giant Mummified Finger Found In Egypt, Nephilim Finger Is 16 Inches Long

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 

A giant finger was discovered in Egypt in 1988. The finger was almost 16 inches long and is estimated to have been from the hand of a being that would have stood around 16 feet in height.  Swiss archaeologist Gregor Spörri released the photo to the newspaper Bild last year. The picture were taken in 1988 during his private trip to Egypt.

The finger was later stolen. Was it real or a hoax?  There are reputed to be giant human mummies in Egypt that have been hidden by archaeologists. The stolen giant human finger allegedly came from a giant mummy found in graves around Giza pyramids

What you are looking at is a gigantic, nearly 16 inches long, mummified humanoid finger and the creatures height would hve been over 16.4 feet!  In 1988, Spörri on the last day of a private trip to Egypt, he met an old man from a grave robber dynasty. The meeting was took place in a farm-house in Bir Hooker, 100 kilometers northeast of Cairo.

After paying, $300 Spörri had a look at the grave robber’s treasure which was the skin and bone  wrapped in old rags

Spörri told BILD.de: “It was an oblong package, smelled musty. I was totally flabbergasted when I saw the dark brown giant finger.”

I was allowed to take it in hand and also to take pictures; a bill was put next to it to get a size comparison. “The bent finger was split open and covered with dried mold.” It was surprisingly light maybe a few hundred grams My heart was up to his neck. That was incredible. In size to a matching body should have been about 15 feet tall” 

Were there giants in Egypt? The Roman historian Flavius ​​Josephus reported  in 79 AD   in his history of the Jewish War that “There were giants. Much larger and different than normal people. Horrible to look at. Who has not seen with his own eyes, he can ot believe that they have been so enormous. ”  Josephus also says that in the vicinity of Hebron during  the time of Moses that “There were till then left the race of giants, who had bodies so large, and countenances so entirely different from other men, that they were surprising to the sight, and terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown to this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men”

Some think the finger may have belonged to a Gigantopithecus blacki.

Gigantopithecus is an extinct genus of ape that existed from roughly nine million years to as recently as one hundred thousand years ago, in what is now China, India, and Vietnam, placing Gigantopithecus in the same time frame and geographical location as several hominin species.The fossil record suggests that individuals of the species Gigantopithecus blacki were the largest apes that ever lived, standing up to 3 m (9.8 ft), and weighing up to 540 kg (1,200 lb)

The first Gigantopithecus remains described by an anthropologist were found in 1935 by Ralph von Koenigswald in an apothecary shop. Fossilized teeth and bones are often ground into powder and used in some branches of traditional Chinese medicine.[5] Von Koenigswald named the theorized species Gigantopithecus.[6] 

Since then, relatively few fossils of Gigantopithecus have been recovered. Aside from the molars recovered in Chinese traditional medicine shops, Liucheng Cave in Liuzhou, China, has produced numerous Gigantopithecus blacki teeth, as well as several jawbones.[3] Other sites yielding significant finds were in Vietnam and India.[2][4] These finds suggest the range of Gigantopithecus was southeast Asia. 

In 1955, 47 G. blacki teeth were found among a shipment of ‘dragon bones’ (aka, “oracle bones”) in China. Tracing these teeth to their source resulted in recovery of more teeth and a rather complete large mandible. By 1958, three mandibles and more than 1,300 teeth had been recovered. Gigantopithecus remains have come from sites in Hubei, Guangxi, and Sichuan, from warehouses for Chinese medicinal products, as well as from cave deposits. Not all Chinese remains have been dated to the same time period, and the fossils in Hubei appear to be of a later date than elsewhere in China. The Hubei teeth are also larger. 

Characteristics 

Gigantopithecus’s method of locomotion is uncertain, as no pelvic or leg bones have been found. The dominant view is that it walked on all fours like modern gorillas and chimpanzees; however, a minority opinion favors bipedal locomotion, most notably championed by the late Grover Krantz, but this assumption is based only on the very few jawbone remains found, all of which are U-shaped and widen towards the rear. This allows room for the windpipe to be within the jaw, allowing the skull to sit squarely upon a fully erect spine as in modern humans, rather than roughly in front of it, as in the other great apes. 

The majority view is that the weight of such a large, heavy animal would put enormous stress on the creature’s legs, ankles, and feet if it walked bipedally; while if it walked on all four limbs, like gorillas, its weight would be better distributed over each limb. 

Diet 

The jaws of Gigantopithecus are deep and very thick. The molars are low-crowned and flat, and exhibit heavy enamel suitable for tough grinding.[8] The premolars are broad and flat and configured similarly to the molars. The canine teeth are neither pointed nor sharp, while the incisors are small, peglike, and closely aligned. The features of teeth and jaws suggested that the animal was adapted to chewing tough, fibrous food by cutting, crushing, and grinding it. Gigantopithecus teeth also have a large number of cavities, similar to those found in giant pandas, whose diet, which includes a large amount of bamboo, may be similar to that of Gigantopithecus. 

In addition to bamboo, Gigantopithecus consumed other vegetable foods, as suggested by the analysis of the phytoliths adhering to its teeth. An examination of the microscopic scratches and gritty plant remains embedded in Gigantopithecus teeth suggests they ingested seeds and fruit, as well as bamboo 

Gigantopithecus blacki 

Gigantopithecus blacki is only known through fossil teeth and mandibles found in cave sites in Southeast Asia. As the name suggests, these are appreciably larger than those of living gorillas, but the exact size and structure of the rest of the body can only be estimated in the absence of additional findings. Dating methods have shown that G. blacki existed for about a million years, going extinct about 100,000 years ago after having been contemporary with (anatomically) modern humans (Homo sapiens) for tens of thousands of years, and co-existing with H. erectus before the appearance of H. sapiens. 

Morphology 

Based on the fossil evidence, adult male Gigantopithecus blacki are believed to have stood about 3 m (9.8 ft) tall and weighed as much as 540 kg (1,200 lb), making the species two to three times heavier than modern gorillas and nearly five times heavier than the orangutan, its closest living relative. Large males may have had an armspan of over 12 ft (3.6 m). The species was highly sexually dimorphic, with adult females roughly half the weight of males.[4] Due to wide interspecies differences in the relationship between tooth and body size, some argue[citation needed] that it is more likely that Gigantopithecus was much smaller, at roughly 1.8 m (5.9 ft). 

The species lived in Asia and probably inhabited bamboo forests, since its fossils are often found alongside those of extinct ancestors of the panda. Most evidence points to Gigantopithecus being a plant-eater.

Its appearance is not known, because of the fragmentary nature of its fossil remains. It possibly resembled modern gorillas, because of its supposedly similar lifestyle. Some scientists, however, think it probably looked more like its closest modern relative, the orangutan. Being so large, Gigantopithecus possibly had few or no enemies when fully grown. However, younger, weak, or injured individuals may have been vulnerable to predation by tigers, pythons, crocodiles, Dinofelis, hyenas, bears, and Homo erectus.

      Wow .. At least now we know who put all of those heavy blocks in to build the pyramids!
      Those big guys with the 16″ long fingers could probably lift the blocks into place without
      much trouble!

        How stupid can you be? Whose bodies lay in the pyramids, it ain’t the giants. You think the ordinary sized men pushed around the giants, yeah you giants go build us tombs for our kings hahaha. Ramps, ropes and a whole lot of men who were the Egyptians’ slaves, the descendants of Jacob, it was built the pyramids.

        • Ardin

          No one’s bodies lay in the pyramids : D
          The pyramids are far from tombs.
          And the ancient Egyptians were not thick-heads about it either. They wouldn’t built a tomb, neglect to include any physical evidence to signify its royal purpose as a tomb, and then forget to put the deceased inside when they sealed it up.
          Additionally, if the giants were Egyptian followers of the Pharaoh then they would more than happily help out with the construction of the pyramids. There’s substantial evidence to suggest that the pyramid builders were anything but slaves. The Greek historian Herodotus was very wrong. They were devoted workers who carved crude graffiti into the blocks of the pyramid stating their admiration for their Pharaoh. They were also fed very well in return for their labor with loaves of bread and plenty of beer. Additionally, they probably would have been exempt from the army and taxes.

          Would you like some Aloe Vera Pharisees? Cause you’ve just got burned. :cool:

    • Don't be hating!

      Put that finger up CONGRESS ASS!

      • trashman

        I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU, exept they would probably like it lol. Also if it was me i would stick the whole freaking hand up their as well :) Maybe a foot, and elbow et etc. good comment

    • That_was_Random

      Giants built the pyramids. Everyone knows that.

      • Pharisees.org

        Who is going to tell a giant what to do, make a giant a slave builder? The giants were kings and other high level men.

        It was the descendants of Jacob that became very numerous in Egypt, almost to outnumber the Egyptians, who were forced into slavery. King Og was the last of the giants who was killed during the time of Moses.

    • inkling

      Did they find it up the sphinx’s nose?

    • Harry Nut

      I’m calling this one a hoax. Why would they mummify just a finger?

    • Hahasomessedup

      I bet the ladies love these guys.

      • Cap-Z-ro

        Have they determined whether or not it was the middle finger ?

    • MSG Chicken

      It looks like a human stool magnified to show detail and I bet that is what it is.

    • FusedNail

      Quickly! Increase the blur factor!

    • underdog

      asks the qustian what finger was it maybe the midel finger ? of so does it mean he is the first in the world to flip the bird .

      • 2QIK4U

        Question. Middle. 😉

    • Gorganzola

      Dip that finger in an egg wash then into some panko . Mmm. :wink:
