2) This can lead to evolutionary change but usually the mutation is a disadvantage and they die out.
3) I have not seen that many tall people in my "short live" but that doesn't mean that they aren't out there. The only reason that we find these giant skeletons is because they were probably revered by the people in their tribe, most likely they were seen as gods. this led to better burials and a better chance to preserve their skeletons. If this happened to only a small percentage of mutants throughout history there would be a large amount of preserved skeletons. Enough skeletons to explain the skeletons we find now.
Maybe they were revered, or maybe they just took control. If you were a giant, nothing much would stop you. Examples: Gog and Magog, Genghis Khan.
wannabe these examples all seem to be from the north american continent, have you come across any others from across the globe whilst looking at this topic???
And you know, these skeletons have been found everywhere in the world
