Nanodiamonds in the Younger Dryas Boundary Sediment Layer
We report abundant nanodiamonds in sediments dating to 12.9 ± 0.1 thousand calendar years before the present at multiple locations across North America. Selected area electron diffraction patterns reveal two diamond allotropes in this boundary layer but not above or below that interval. Cubic diamonds form under high temperature-pressure regimes, and n-diamonds also require extraordinary conditions, well outside the range of Earth's typical surficial processes but common to cosmic impacts. N-diamond concentrations range from 10 to 3700 parts per billion by weight, comparable to amounts found in known impact layers.
These diamonds provide strong evidence for Earth's collision with a rare swarm of carbonaceous chondrites or comets at the onset of the Younger Dryas cool interval, producing multiple airbursts and possible surface impacts, with severe repercussions for plants, animals, and humans in North America.
Instead he found MILES OF MUCK filled with the remains of mammoth, mastodon, several kinds of bison, horses, wolves, bears, and lions. Just north of Fairbanks, Hibbens and his associates watched as bulldozers pushed the half-melted muck into sluice boxes for the extraction of gold.
Animal tusks and bones rolled up in front of the blades "like shavings before a giant plane." The carcasses were found in all attitudes of death, most of them "pulled apart by the same unexplainable prehistoric catastrophic disturbance." (Hibben, 1946)
The evidence of the violence of nature combined with the stench of rotting carcasses was staggering. The ice fields containing these remains stretched for hundred of miles in every direction. (Hibben, 1946) Trees and animals, layers of peat and mosses, twisted and mangled together like some giant mixer had jumbled them some 10,000 years ago, and then froze them into a solid mass.

Who knows what History, Myths, and every day events were simply wiped out because of religion
I'm pretty sure there was a lot more than their religious views written down.

What would you expect a Christian Missionary of the time to think of such barbarous acts?
Are we going to limit ourselves to referring to such heinous deeds as "cultural modes of worship?"

There are hundreds of accounts over the past few centuries, about the discovery of very large humans skeletons all over North America.
Originally posted by KotovSyndrome "The Scientific American, in 1883, published the following account:
Two miles from Mandan, on the bluffs near the junction of the Hart and Missouri Rivers, says the local newspaper, the Pioneer, is an old Cemetery of fully 100 acres in extent filled with bones of a giant race. This vast city of the dead lies just east of the Fort Lincoln road.

there was a report (unverified) about the Smithsonian museum taking a barge full of artifacts and dumping them in the Atlantic ocean.
Originally posted by KotovSyndrome but no one knows, since most of the Smithsonian's collection can only be viewed by employees and government officials.
Originally posted by KotovSyndrome So, there is a very convincing theory that a group of large humans inhabited parts of north america for some time and may have predated the native Americans. despite the (often) religious motivations behind the theory, the large numbers of stories and scattered evidence is hard to ignore.
