I read long ago, that the Greek Athletes who possessed very large penises, were worshiped and women paid great sums to be impregnated by them. It was a highly desirable attribute on a man. Now, guys resort vacuum pumps and pills to plump it up. Most of which does nothing.

Size mattered then and it still does now.

www.treehugger.com... The incredible shrinking man file.




Your funnyness is most true coincedently, there is a legend from what I remember of reading of herculeas that he once impregnated over 40 females in one night, here is the quickest thing that came up on google about that little legend.


Hercules and the Daughters of Thespius:



King Thespius had 50 daughters and wanted Hercules to impregnate them all. Hercules, who went hunting with King Thespius each day, was unaware that each night's woman was different (although he may not have cared), and so he impregnated 49 or 50 of them. The women gave birth to 51 sons who are said to have colonized Sardinia.



Look it up you might find more of the story from what I could remember it was part of the labors he was supposed to do, but different sources say differently, aither way herculeas was a ladies man acording to the greeks.

There are those who doubt the photographic evidences presented here, but I am not so stupid as some of you are implying. Just open up your minds a little. Giants have always existed and still exist. The world is far stranger than fiction. I hope that the TRUTH will get through to you. Those who trust the Bible know that there were a race of giants [gods] ruling the world in the pre-flood era [before the end of the last great Ice Age cycle]. The Bible states that we were their cattle. That they were eating us. Cannibalism. The Bible states that not all those giants [gods] died in the Flood of Noah. Thus implying that such giants might still be around and ofcourse still eating us. Here I could go into the subject of all the missing persons there are year upon year. The figures are quite shocking. In the USA alone there are annually as many as 2,000,000 missing persons, out of which a massive 200,000 per year are not yet traced. Many of them children. I advise that you watch the movie THE FOURTH KIND. See it in the context of what I am suggesting about the giants. Also legend tells us that the giants [gods] lived in "the underworld" which in more modern language we describe as "Deep Underground Military Bases" DUMB. Read in Exodus 15:3 "The LORD is a man of war. The LORD is his name".

I just discovered something today and if I am right since I went to different sources on the internet.
According to the Koran Adam from the garden of Eden was 30 meteres tall, which sounds really odd since the Bible and the Koran's interpretation of how life began is totally different. The Koran says more than once that God created earth in 6days, in another passage it states 8days but the Bible says 7days so they are far from each other in the creation view of things.

In the Koran apparently it says Adam was a giant.




Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam in his complete shape and form (directly), sixty cubits (about 30 meters) in height. When He created him, He said (to him), "Go and greet that group of angels sitting there, and listen what they will say in reply to you, for that will be your greeting and the greeting of your offspring." Adam (went and) said, 'As-Salamu alaikum (Peace be upon you).' They replied, 'AsSalamu-'Alaika wa Rahmatullah (Peace and Allah's Mercy be on you) So they increased 'Wa Rahmatullah' The Prophet added 'So whoever will enter Paradise, will be of the shape and form of Adam. Since then the creation of Adam's (offspring) (i.e. stature of human beings is being diminished continuously) to the present time."

Sahih Bukhari 8:74:246

When He created him, He said to him, "Go and greet that group of angels, and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring." So, Adam said (to the angels), As-Salamu Alaikum (i.e. Peace be upon you).

This is what the Bible says about Giants.


Genesis 6:4
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.

Numbers 13:33
And there we saw the giants ... And we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

Deuteronomy 2:10-11
The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; Which also were accounted giants.

Deuteronomy 2:20-21
That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time.... A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the LORD destroyed them.

Deuteronomy 3:11
For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was ... nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it.

Joshua 12:4
And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants.

Joshua 18:16
The valley of the son of Hinnom, and which is in the valley of the giants.

1 Samuel 17:4
Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

According to the Bible giants were evil cross breeds of humans and God had to destroy them.
If there were to be found today there would be a big cover-up about them, a lot of the Middle East is closed off in terms of these discoveries, some bits of rumour or evidence has surfaced, some say Giants built the Jupiter Temple in Lebanon and even helped withe the pyramids, even the hyrogliphs have giant beings next to humans in them.

The point is that if these Giants are found will the Muslims come out and say look the Koran was right because Adam was a giant?

Will this be a satanic conspiracy where they will be worshipped and help prove another religion is right or will it not surface at all? In Bible terms giants are of the fallen ones, the Koran states that Adam was a giant and one has to think with all its anti-Jewish verses and denial of Jesus Christ as lord that something smells in the direction of knowledge from the fallen Angels.

I could be wrong about the Koran version of Adam being 30 foot tall as I have just looked into this by accident today, if you like to expand on this issue please do.

Again if Adam was 90 feet tall in the garden of Eden then the God of the Bible did not mention it, but Muslims argue that man got smaller with time, again there would have been some evidence not even the Neaderthals were that big, so one has to ask that that there was a hybrid species with a satanic agenda. If let us say adam got smaller because he came out of Eden then man would have remained the same height throughout rage througout.

The only person to have known other than God that Adam was 90 feet tall is Satan, and God never told anyone in the Bible about the height of the prophets just the height of the Nephilim and Goliath, the giants were never God's plan. If Adam was 90 foot tall then only Satan would know because he was also in the garden of Eden, a good way to know your enemy is to know what he knows that others don't and many times the Koran trashes everything the Bible stands for into its own version of religion.

The video I didn't even watch. I don't have to . There is so much archeological evidence like gigantic axe heads found all over the world.
Besides all I for one need to begin with is the Bible. Nothing but truth there.

[edit on 5-7-2010 by randyvs]


Just one thing then...where's all the latest info on giant axe heads and indeed any picture or video or even the locations of the skeletons of the alleged giants and their weapons? Where did all the remains shown in the OP video go?
(an update would be real cool about now)

Love the thread, I honestly never knew of this and just saw about 3 diff vids on you tube about this. This is truly the proof of a cover up for no reason. People should be learning this in school and seeing them around the world up close!

Wat a sad would we live in.

Have you ever heard about the Basque giants called the Jentilak and the one eyed giant called Tartelo?

The Jentilak were known to throw rocks at buildings. The single megalithic rocks located throughout Europe are thought be thrown in place by them.

The giant Tartelo has an interesting story you might be familiar with.

Two boys were hunting and a storm came along and they decided to hide in a cave for shelter. It turned out it was Tartelo’s home. When he arrived he captured both boys and ate one that day. That evening while Tartelo was asleep the remaining boy stabbed Tartelo’s only eye with a roasting spit. The boy stole the giant’s ring and fled out of the cave. As the boy was fleeing the ring called out and said, “Here I am. Here I am.” The now blind giant headed for the voice of the ring. The boy reached a cliff and knew the giant was following the ring. The boy cut off his finger and threw it down the cliff. Tartelo fell off the cliff still following the ring’s call.
www.scribd.com...


This is part of the story of The Lord of the Rings.

Sauron and the single eye of fire.
The ring that calls to its master.
Golem bit off Frodo’s finger so that he could get the ring of power from him.
Frodo pushed Golem off a cliff and he fell to his death while holding the ring of power.

The Lord of the Rings

I realize it is just a story, but how would a ring that fit a giant's finger be so tight on a boy's finger that he would have to cut his own finger off to remove it?

The ring shrunk to size to match its bearer.
Didn't you see the movie?

I admit I know very little on this subject, but I have a little something to add. My dad is Blackfeet and we're from Montana. He actually married a 2nd generation Gal from Wales, so Im half.. Im 5 feet tall. My dad is 6'5", his mom is 6'1" and on and on. They arent just tall, but well built and not skinny like basketball players you see. Not that scrawny knock kneed look. Maybe not giants, but to a person who is 5' tall,I imagine 7-8 feet tall is pretty well a giant! Seriously though, if in the distant past with the high concentration of o2 in our atmosphere.. why couldnt these people who are just genetically large even these days have been quite large back then? Im not talking 15 feet. My generation, even the full blooded rez kids arent as tall as our grandparents and not all are that tall.. just a few families there.

Also, These huge skeleton hoax pics make no sense. to be that large and of that weight .. add in some gravity and they would not be of that kind of build or symmetry. KWIM??

Also, OP seems kinda out there. Those pics have been around a while. I like the idea of learning about this kind of thing but BS threads with BS info and pics does us all a disservice.

You need to look into 'growing earth theory'. It's the only thing that explains the exact separation of the continents. The sea and earth have both been rising over time. It's a product of earth taking on mass from the inside out, as our sun and other yet larger heavenly bodies create all kinds of 'free' particles such as neutrinos, many of these are not created the right size exactly ,and the result is quarks are produced. Quarks are what cause the disturbance in the center of the largest particles which format space to infinity, these being bosons and larger ones yet. Black holes make the largest by consuming everything else. The flow opposition between the 2 is what causes time to pass. I describe this on my youtube channel 'mikefromspace'.
Magma inside the earth appears to be making carbon, light gasses, lithium, and a whole slew of other minerals, evidently from nothing but free leptons that pass through the earth's magnetic field lines of force.

omfg. there is a thread about giants on ATS. Most of those pics inthe video and likewise are HOAX's. They were part of an online competition to make it look as if Giants did exist. It was a photoshop competition.!!! GEEZ. Search the internet for a bit will you?

Don't believe EVERYTHING you see.

I have a few giant stories. One was in a Northern Town in Nevada. I heard a rumor there was a giant skull on display at a local museum nearby my destination. I actually stopped in the town where the story allegedly took place. I inquired about the rumors and an elderly store owner told me this:

She said long ago, the Paiute Indian tribe would feud with two large red haired giants. They would fight for food, territory, or whatever. They lived in a cave in Lovelock. It's called Lovelock Cave. One morning the Paiutes ambushed the giants in the cave. They threw flaming torches into the cave and shot arrows heavily into it.

In the 20th Century, archaeologists were excavating the cave and found arrows. They found large human bones and a skull. I was told they the skull was placed in a nearby museum. I went to the museum to investigate further. The curator of the museum explained to me that a University bought the exhibit and all that left was a jawbone. I remember the jawbone being on the larger side.

Thought this might be of interest to you.

Please understand that gigantic animals including gigantic oxen and horses and camels were living on this planet in the not so distant past, within the time frame of our Ice Age dwelling early ancestors. Why can we accept the existence of such gigantic skeletons of animals but cannot accept the existance of such gigantic skeletons of humans ? If there were such gigantic animals then surely there were most likely gigantic humans existing too. Research is showing that higher atmospheric pressure [such as existed at sea level during Ice Ages due to fall in sea levels globally] as well as higher levels of oxygen in the air creates enlargement which leads to such gigantic variety of which ever species existed, including humans. There are also researches showing that the DNA can be modified either naturally or artificially so that the species can become gigantic by comparison to the species as it used to be. Selective breeding of farm livestock has always created bigger than normal varieties. Humans in our past might have selectively bred themselves [for military gain] into being gigantic by comparison to the smaller normal humans [ourselves] around them. During the "Flood of Noah" at the end of the last Ice Age 9161 BC it is observed that most of the gigantic varieties died out. [Ice Cores taken from the Greenland Ice Sheet show that the great meltdown, Biblically called "the Flood of Noah", occurred 11,171 years ago this year 2010 AD].

I do not need to reply to your demands, because as you will discover if you do your homework, every academic [history professor] will tell you that just about every Emperor of Rome was of larger than normal stature. Visit your local Army Base and ask to interview the General. I think that you will discover that he is of larger than normal stature. Most of those who join the Army tend to be of larger than normal stature.

CHAPTER THREE
SONS OF GOD-DAUGHTERS OF MEN

GENESIS 6: 1-8
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And the Lord said, my spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.
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.
And God saw the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them.
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

So this passage from Genesis is very relevant and very revealing in our search for the source of evil upon the Earth. The sons of God are called “The Fallen Ones” in Genesis and there offspring Nephilim a word literally means “The rejected Ones,” Now as we know Satan refused to obey God and bow to mankind which caused a war in the heavens which ended with Satan and his followers being thrown out of heaven. Satan’s first assault on man and God was to tempt Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Could this passage in the bible be his second assault upon God’s creation and in doing so he brought down the Lords wrath upon all upon the earth?

Fallen Angels procreating with women and creating strange hybrid offspring that offended God. The Rabbinical sources and the Septuagint interpretations had no trouble understanding this passage that they helped scribe. The Nephilim, this offspring what were they; it says giants, but could it have been more like genetic experimentation gone mad which created Centaurs, Griffons, Unicorns and all the fabled creatures of mythology. In the book of Jasher, mentioned in the bible in Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1.18 it states “After the fallen angels went into the daughters of men, the sons of those men taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order to provoke the Lord”. In the book of Enoch an original book of the bible removed at the foundation of the Roman Catholic Church it says “they began to sin against birds and beasts, and reptiles and fish” Furthermore did some of these obscure creations survive beyond the flood as It states whilst King David had been scouting Israel he found tribes of Nephilim on the land and we all have heard of his battle with Goliath the giant of Gath. These legends were reminiscent allover the world with the Greek, Egyptian, Hindu and all the way across to the New World.

So Giants didn’t exist! Did they? Well the evidence tends to suggest they have done and going back to the Shepherd Boy David and his combat with Goliath in Gath well an Israeli archeologist has of recent found evidence that this biblical Giant did exist. Goliath the champion of the Philistines and according to the Bible stood nine feet and nine inches tall, his body Armour weighed 160 Lbs. or 80 KG and he stood at the fore of the army intimidating any adversaries. Goliath came from a race of people called the Anakim, or Rephaim, which in Hebrew literally translates to Giants. The fact this race is extraordinary tall is taken for granted and mentioned many times in the Old Testament.

Goliath categorically labeled a myth or fable by most mainstream authorities but in 2005 Archeologist Dr Aren Maier from Tel Aviv Bar-Ilan University astonished the world when he announced he had found Goliath. Though Dr Maier didn’t exactly find the Giants body, he however find a shard of pottery with the name Goliath etched upon it from the Tel es Shafi Mound, the site of the ancient city of Gath, the biblical home of Goliath. The red clay shard had the words Alwat and wlt in proto- Canaanite writing upon it the Hebrew pronunciation of Goliath. Joshua 11:22 actually labeled Gath as “The home of the giants”.

The story of the Shepherd Boy states that David collected five smooth stones from a nearby stream, this number is significant as according to Samuel 21:22 it is stated that Goliath had four sons. The ammunition a stone is misleading as slinger stones have been discovered the size of a pool ball or the size of a clenched fist. It even states in the biblical story that David used a stick to dislodge these stones from a riverbed, so he wouldn’t of needed such an aid if they were just small rocks scattered all about.

The biblical record did not stop at this story about the race of Nephilim as Moses sent out spies who returned overwhelmed at what they had witnessed as they stated that the land ahead was overrun with Giants (Numbers 13:28). It continues the Israelites were pulled back from entering the Promised Land and destined to wander the wilderness for 40 years until the unbelieving generation had died off. (Numbers 31,33). Is this why the Israelites spent 40 years away from their homeland as the place had been inhabited and overrun by the Nephilim?

As Joshua 12: 4 eventually led the Israelites into the promised land, they still needed to destroy the giants and their King Og of Basham whose bed is recorded as being nine cubits long and four cubits wide. We have mentioned Goliath, the Anakim or Rephaim, there is also written records where the Moabites named these giants as the Emim and the Amorites labeled them as the Zamzummin as mentioned in Deuteronomy. In Numbers 13:22 “There also we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak” Which basically states the Anakim, Rephaim (Giants) were the old race known as the Nephilim.
To conclude this chapter I will show further evidence of recorded material that references these hybrid humanoids or Sons of God –Daughters of Men. Pliny the Roman Historian recorded a family of Giants named Pusio and Secundilla who stood over 10 feet tall and lived in the time of Caesar Augustus who reigned from 27 BC until 14 AD so the Nephilim still roamed the earth in small bands even during the time of Jesus Christ.

In our modern time era we have an article in the NY Times printed on June 9th 1936 that states” Zoologist E. M Miller from the University of Miami had discovered a number of eight-foot tall skeletons on a small island off the coast of Florida. It goes on to say that these skeletons had an unusual feature in that their eye sockets were unusually high upon their forehead which is curious when you consider the Greek myths of the Cyclops where predominately they named them for the strange abnormity of their eyes.

On December 2nd in 1930 the NY Times ran a story about Mining Engineer J.E Coker who had discovered a cemetery of Giants in the small Mexican border town of Sayopa. His crew found numerous bodies of at least eight foot tall at a burial ground along the Yazul River. J.E Coker said, “They were found buried tier upon tier”.

Again in February 1936 the New York Times ran the story of the giant skeleton found at El Boqui in Nicaragua that stood at over eight feet tall and this skeleton had been found with its skull missing.

Aside from the plethora of completely unfounded and flatly false claims in your post, the following illustrate the absurdities of your position:

Given that no known copies of the Hebrew Book of Jashur have ever been seen, it is interesting that you have this translation.

I submit that you (or Joseph Smith) made it up.

Almost as bad is:

Originally posted by robertauthor In the book of Enoch an original book of the bible removed at the foundation of the Roman Catholic Church it says “they began to sin against birds and beasts, and reptiles and fish”

The book of Enoch was never, ever in the Bible. The Bible was not changed by the Catholic Church. The Christian Bible was created by what would eventually become the Catholic Church.

It was not a book that was sitting out there pre-assembled, waiting for the Catholics to edit it.

The reason that the Book of Enoch never made it into the Bible is that there was good evidence at the time that it was recently written and thus it was decided that it couldn't actually have been related to the real Enoch at all. This is true of almost all of the Apocrypha.

At any rate, there are already passages extant in the Bible decrying sex with animals. Are you under the impression, by the way, that humans having sex with animals will result in half-human animal hybrids?

If so, you have more problems than just the ones about making up scripture to back your vapid belief system.
