One of the intriguing puzzles of science is the evidence which supports the Biblical assertion that "there were giants in those days." Legends of
many races included stories of giant men who once roamed the earth, and an intensive search of scientific records shows that there is physical
evidence that supports those legends.
Near Brayton on the headwaters of the Tennessee River, were found some remarkable footprints, impressed in what is now solid rock. The ball of the
heel was 13 inches wide. The marks showed clearly that the fellow whose stride turned to stone in that distant day also had 6 toes, and that he was a
contemporary of a giant horse-like animal whose hoofprints measured eight by ten inches.
The antiquity of man is further attested by the rock carving in the Supai Canyon in the famed Grand Canyon area, where the Doheny Expidition in 1924
confirmed the existence of a remarkable petroglyph which depicts a tyrannosaurus rex standing erect on his massive tail as he waits for the chance to
use his powerful jaws and fangs on a prospective victim. Dinosaurs were presumably extinct for ages before humans appeared on earth. The carving is so
old that the iron, seeping slowly from the stone, has formed its customary protective covering, a task required by untold eons.
In late 1958 a human skeleton was found in a layer of coal in an Italian mine... a layer that was approximately 11 million years old...
In the number 3 Eagle Coal Mine at Bear Creek Montana, in November of 1926, miners discovered two huge human molars... so large that only a giant
could have grown them, and these teeth were in a strata at least 30 million years old - old enough that dinosaurs were roaming the Wyoming swamps when
the giant who owned the teeth was alive.
In 1833 soldiers digging a pit for a powder magazine at Lompock Rancho California hacked their way through a layer of cemented gravel and came up with
a skeleton of a giant man about 12 feet tall. The skeleton was surrounded by carved shells, huge stone axes, and blocks of porphyry covered with
unintelligble symbols. The giant was noteworthy in still another respect: he has a double row of teeth, both upper and lower.
Near Crittenden Arizona, in 1891, workmen excavating for a commercial building came upon a huge stone sarcophagus eight feet below the surface. The
contractor called in expert help and the sarcophagus was opened to reveal a granite mummy case which had once held the body of a human being more than
12 feet tall - a human with 6 toes, according to the carving on the case. But the body had been buried so many thousands of years that it had long
since turned to dust.
Just another silent witness to the truth of Genesis, which tells us that there were giants in the earth in those days.
