Just to toss my own 2 cents worth in, my own family on my mother's side is Black Forest German, and there are some very very tall ones mixed in there
too, and I don't mean 6 footers, I mean 7 foot 6 and more. So these exceptionally tall folks still do exist in the world and most likely did in the
past too. My own great uncles were both well over 7 foot, lived a normal life span and had no unusual health problems. Most of the males in my family
lineage are quite tall, spanning a minimum of well over 6 foot, with many approaching 7 foot.
I myself believe that there were races of tall folks in the past, just as there were races and groups of animals in the past that were much smaller
than the norm. Why is this so hard for people to grasp, anyway? Our world is an extremely varied place, and man hasn't seen all of it, nor will he
ever. There are remote places yet that modern folks just don't get to see. New species are discovered on a daily basis. Who knows what will be
Great thread and topic of conversation! Thanks!
