Said to have originally been captured by Spanish sailors
in the 1600’s, Kap-Dwa was a two-headed,
3.5-meter tall giant that once lived on Earth.

www.ancient-code.com...


Kap Dwa is an ancient, mummified two headed Patagonian
giant that originally originated in the jungles of Argentina,
South America.The Remains of Kap-Dwa Kapdwaa begins in 1673,
where the giant of over 12 feet with two heads, was captured by
Spanish sailors and set captive on their ship. The Spaniards lashed
him to the mainmast, but he broke free (being a giant) and during
the ensuing battle suffered a fatal injury; they skewered him through
the chest with a pike.

"I think he's exactly what he's billed as," says Gerber,
no hint of jest in his smile. "We've had students from Hopkins,
droves of them, and they all say he's real."

articles.baltimoresun.com...


In 1579, Sir Francis Drake's ship chaplain, Francis Fletcher,
wrote about meeting very tall Patagonians.
In the 1590s, Anthonie Knivet claimed he had seen dead bodies
12 feet (3.7 m) long in Patagonia.

So , is this real ?
... and is it true that 'ol Kap is really the
Republicans and Democrats parties of today ?
( giant , man eating cryptoids of the ancient , mouldy variety ? )

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that,
when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men,
and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men
which were of old, men of renown.” -Genesis 6:4

Very cool!! Haven't there been many reports of giants and their remains discovered over the last 100 years? There have also been some good articles where these relics were on display in major museums but started to disappear from the public viewing areas. I wonder how many the smithsonian museum has under lock and key?

Another interesting theory I ran across was that our gravity could have been much less in times past. They started looking at the large dinosaurs and computed there would be no way those bodily structures could have even lifted themselves off of the ground much less survived.

I don't think so, because gravity is related to mass unless the whole earth had less mass back in the day, then how it gained mass I ask you?

In Henry Turtledove's After the Downfall, a German Wehrmacht Officer magically got transported from 1945 Berlin into a fantasy medieval world filled with giant blonde haired blue eyed humans that resembled Nordic aliens. What if these giants came from another world?

Very good question. With our current mainstream understanding and academic rigidity of gravitational theories, it can't. But if it turns out the gravity is an electrical phenomena and our understanding of what constitutes mass is way off, then all bets are void. What if mass relates to how much energy is stored in matter at a particular time?

Fun times ahead.

Edit to add:

I have been corrupted by the electric universe theory (my apologizes
) , much more interesting and compelling compared to what mainstream is putting out.

Hoax,




There is another virtually identical mummified Patagon (or was it the same one?), "King Mac-A-Dula", he was " nine feet high, had two heads, was as strong as an elephant, and a great warrior who led his tribe to many victories, and that after one great battle he disappeared and was never seen or heard of again".

His mummy (a natural process acording to the pamphlet we are quoting) "was found in a cave in Patagonia. South America, by a party of English miners, while prospecting for gold". Apparently it was exhibited by the Nelson Supply House at South Boston, Massachusetts, U.S. It was under lease from England, so perhaps it was the same being.

It seems however that Mr. Nelson made his fake mummies out of papier-maché and sold them to anyone willing to display them.


Two-headed creatures have existed as "curios" since time immemorial. See This image of some strange creatures, among which is a two-headed dwarf.

Patagonia also has myths about a condor with two heads and an enigmatic two-headed guanaco, which was a bad omen, a "forerunner of sickness"

The bold is mine.

For a source of all that is Patagonian, Austin's blog is a must.

I pity Patagonia, there will be mad scientists digging the place up all over now. Hmmm, didn't the tribes dye their hair Orange.

Gravity varies all around the globe, it might be that ice fields, and isostatic glacial adjustment together could create a much weaker force/marked variation in those places. That effect has been markedly noticeable in Canada.
Patagonia has a very large icefield/s, and I think Glacial rebound.

It appears that there are two of these giants which would explain the two conflicting stories about the origin of Kap Dwa.

The Kap Dwa in Maryland is from Paraguay NOT Patagonia...


The Current Kap Dwa in Maryland is from Paraguay NOT Patagonia

The most disturbing thing about this having two examples by the same name is that each do not get the full merit of credibility that they deserve. The two-headed giant in Baltimore is in fact NOT Kap-Dwa. The name Kap Dwa is “Captain Two” in English. Captain-Two in the Paraguay language, a language known as Guarani is “Mokoi”, . . .

The Other Kap Dwa "Mokoi"

I'd say it's just an old carnival fake that were popular back in the day and some still make fake mummy's to fool people today, such as the alien mummy's found in Peru. Damn carnies!


The giants were all the rage in the 1920s and '30s, says Warren Raymond, a collector and sideshow historian in Silver Spring. "Patagonia" had entered the cultural lexicon. It was a distant, barely known land and a great word for a huckster looking to make a buck. "Showmen, who were never one to let the grass grow under their feet, were quick to capitalize on it," says Raymond. Nelson's Supply House in South Boston cranked out Patagonian giants, charging $60 apiece. For that you got a giant, a banner, perhaps a written spiel if you couldn't come up with your own. The giant was known as King Capuwar, says Raymond.

The Nelson Supply House was located at 514 E. 4th St. South Boston Massachusetts. Billy Nelson was the Manager. They listed in their catalog that they are the manufactures of Mummified Curiosities. Of the Strange, Remarkable, Curiosities and Monstrosities. Both Animal and Human Mummified Reproductions of the World's Greatest Sideshow Wonders who once lived and were exhibited alive. As well as Wonderful Imaginary Wonders conceived by the mind of man.

It was actually Jim Danforth, an understudy of Harryhausen, who did the animation.
Yeah...I'm a film nerd.

She did. She's doing great, thanks to quite a few people, some of them from here.

Good catch, and good to know.

I didn't identify the movie, just the method.
