The Establishment Has Already Acknowledged A Lost Race of Giants

One of the most controversial subjects regarding the ancient prehistoric cultures of North America concerns what we refer to as the Unique Physical Types (UPT). For the purposes of what follows, these UPT are often gigantic humanoid skeletons with hyper elongated or high-vaulted crania, occasional extra or pathological detentions (including several reports of double or triple rows of teeth), and are usually discovered in the burial mounds and associated graveyards of the Adena-Hopewell, Archaic Cultures, and Southeastern Ceremonial Complex.

It is common today for alternative history researchers to tell the story of how these beings were discovered en masse throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Historians, antiquarians, and archaeologists recorded the discovery of the Unique Physical Types all over the United States...


While surfing the interwebs I revisited a topic I've enjoyed speculating over the past few decades on and came across these two articles. For me the topic of giants has always been fascinating, No I don't believe in Giants that towered 20, 30 or higher feet. I do however believe in the possibility of exceptionally tall [Homo-something or other] now obvioulsy extinct living once upon a time. Which were around 8 - 9 or even 10 feet tall, possibly in possession of great strength due to their specific genetic lineage possibly even predating homo Sapiens which later, interbreed and their lines died out by being genetically aggregated down as more and more H-Sapien DNA was introduced into their lines. Over time the stories of their stature has been exaggerated to the point of unrealistic proportions...

Many of us have read stories of the "Mound Giant" skeletons and how the remains were supposedly whisked away and or vanished without a trace due to some either "Religious or Scientific" conspiracy to cover-up what didn't fit their beliefs. Those who were bible thumpers may not have wanted to admit that there may have been beings that existed before the "Creation" timeline while those of the Scientific establishment avoiding anything that didn't support the overwhelming Darwinian paradigm of the period.

Here are some supposed Native American tales on the topic.

Ancient Race of White Giants Described in Native Legends From Many Tribes

Several Native American tribes have passed down legends of a race of white giants who were wiped out. We’ll take a look at a few such legends, including those among the Choctaw and the Comanches of the United States down to the Manta of Peru...

“They excelled every other nation which was flourished, either before or since, in all manner of cunning handicraft—were brave and warlike—ruling over the land they had wrested from its ancient possessors with a high and haughty hand. Compared with them the palefaces of the present day were pygmies, in both art and arms. …”


If these beings did in fact exist that would be, in my opinion, a major game changer.

Hopefully soon some dig somewhere will reveal unequivocal proof that such beings were in fact real.

Oh, side note.


Patagonia

The name Patagonia comes from the word patagón used by Magellan in 1520 to describe the native people that his expedition thought to be giants. It is now believed that the people he called the Patagons were Tehuelches, who tended to be taller than Europeans of the time...

More side notes… besides certain American basketball players, theres Basketball dude from China, then theres "Chief", the character in One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest and that tall white guy in that fish movie…

Andre the Giant and a plethora of Wringling Brothers exploitations round out a list that must convince us giants are in the blood line of Humanity, they come out once in a while to play on the world stage.

Why bother stating historical facts, if the same skeptics will only admit that the Rephaim existed, once a giant farts on their head ?

Then they will try their utmost to believe the lame street media that will state its 'brown Swamp Gas, honest'.

This subject interests me as I did not know about "giants" and the subject coming from North American Native American folklore. I was changing channels one day and came across a show called America Unearthed. The show was about a geologist researching giants in America. Very interesting topic that I had put on the "back burner" until this thread.

The Patagones or Patagonian giants are a mythical race of people, who first began to appear in early European accounts of the then little-known region and coastline of Patagonia. They were supposed to have exceeded at least double normal human height, some accounts giving heights of 12 to 15 feet (3.7 to 4.6 m) or more. Tales of these improbable people would take a hold over European concepts of the region for some 250 years, until they were substantially debunked at the end of the 18th century

If they walked the Earth, then they would have had to have houses and food and clothing and tools.

So where are the traces of civilizations and villages and cities with furniture and graves of people over 6' tall found?

The people of Patagonia may have been tall but they also wore tall conical fur hats making them look even taller.

Just to play Devil's advocate, perhaps it was a small population. Any houses, food, clothing, villages, cities and tools could of easily been re-purposed, or destroyed by us. We are pretty good at genocide and burning bodies.

Great thread Slayer (as usual).

On the topic, I might add the following that has been mentioned before on ATS but this time is more detailed.


The Greatest Smithsonian cover up: Dozens of Giant skeletons discovered around the world

It seems that the idea that Giants walked on Earth is a possibility being considered by more people in the last couple of years. Due to the number of mysterious findings around the world, a large number of researchers is considering the possibility that these ‘mythological’ beings actually existed on Earth in the distant past.

Stories and tales about gigantic beings inhabiting Earth occur in almost all ancient cultures and civilizations. We can find stories in many mythologies of the ancient world: Greek, Norse, Germanic, Indian, Indo-European, and also in the new world as in the traditions of the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas; but most importantly in almost all mayor sacred books of antiquity: the Lebhar Gabhale, the Hindu Ramayana and even in the Bible.

a reply to: Gothmog You might want to revisit that story. Remember how many stones he put in his pouch? I think there was 5. He only needed and used one. Who were the other four stones for? Goliath had four brothers. The giants of Gath. I think they may have been about 8-9' tall.

I brought this topic up to my father recently and asked if him if there were trully giants and where the where the bones were. My dad has many titles. He is a genius research scientist that will turn 89 in 31 days. He is a retired Chemist, Microbiologist, director of research for a fortune 500 company, with an extensive medical background as well.He has been summoned to the White house for meetings in the 70s with top officials. He said they are being hidden from us for a reason. Evidently it blows holes in Darwins theory. With Darwins theory you are just an animal that trully has no rights. Yes, it is about control

Here , let me take it a bit further....
My Dads Dad was born in Turkey ( Armenian) in 1900 at the base of mount Ararat. Remember that mountain? In about 1965 I asked my Grandpa if Noahs ark story was true or just a fairy tale. His jaw dropped. He said the people in the old city would have thought me a fool to ask that. He said of course it is true, and that people from our city had been on it before. He went on to say that it was verry high up on the mountain, on the Turkish side and was petrified and frozen in solid ice. He said that the only time even part of it was visible was when there had been at least 15 years consecutive drought.
So..... What is a giant ship doing that high on a mountain and what what was its purpose?

thanks for this info and thanks OP for the thread. I believe it! to many coincidences happened around this subject to be just an imagination of some individuals.

If this is indeed the reality, than one can only wonder how much other knowledge is hidden from general public? I think this goes very deep and even global ancient past civilization is hidden from us because of the same purpose (for instance research Tartaria, big empire with its own emblems, flag, kings and so on...all gone and rarely mentioned in schools, why?). Maybe to keep things the way they are. If global past civ would be found, than evolution goes flying out of the windows as we know it today and many other things with it.

And also if this is true than that means someone or a few with a lot of power are behind this since modern history. Hard to believe I know, but when you hear things like that, it makes one wonder how far this goes?

Beautiful series on youtube for anyone interested, made by user newearth - titled the survivors. I recommend it in case one would want to know a part of real history or at least her interpretation of evidence left by real ancients.

I am as skeptical as you, Byrd. But if i am being honest, expecting an extinct race of people to have cities and furniture is somewhat anthropomorphic.

 


On the topic....there is always Angus MacAskill


Angus Mòr MacAskill[pronunciation?], frequently referred to as Giant MacAskill or Black Angus (1825 – August 8, 1863), was a Scottish-born Canadian giant. The 1981 Guinness Book of World Records posits Angus as the tallest non-pathological giant in recorded history (7 ft 9 in, or 2.36 m), as well as being the man with the largest chest measurements of any non-obese man (80 inches, or 200 cm).


The stories of his exploits are barely believable.
