Who knows if its a story, or if its truth, with the likelyhood that the Bible that most of us have come to know has likely been tainted by religious
politics. I always wondered how any of this fit in. If we could date the time of David (the giant slayer) We would have a better idea of when the
giants were around, since he killed one. It still wouldn't tell us when they all died off, but its a starting point, at minimum.
I think it is clear that what they do today with copyright thing is the same kind of nasty business GODS did to men who were building Tower of
As for giant men, isn't there a subspecies of Homo (erectus?) which was actually of average height 190 cm, living parallel with Homo sapiens sapiens,
Neanderthal, Heidelbergensis, Erectus, (Megantropus) etc? There were many subspecies of Homo (including our own kind homo sapiens sapiens, which goes
back at least 200.000 years).
By the way, did homo erectus really disappear? As far as i know, during million years its brain steadily grew and reached almost the size of modern
man (the lower limit). I believe that all those subspecies mixed and melted into present mixture of races. As its brain reached its limit, it became
Now, the most interesting part. If we talk about intelligence - there are very big differences inside our kind, however it is, out of political
correctness I guess, deemed unimportant in defining our species. This is a very weak point in determining species judging by the ability to create
more or less sophisticated tools, and not to mention spiritual advancements.
We tend to stick to technological measuring units, but then, some nations are so much advanced compared to others that the difference is bigger than
between an ape and Einstein. I believe that scientific approach is very biased and very wrong regarding difference between homo subspecies, especially
because it uses partial standards, comparing existing religions or social structures and mostly neglecting personal values and artistic intuition.
If neanderthals were a spiritual species, what kind of material residue would there be to prove it? None.
Because of this, it is necessary to use, and I am not saying to abandon present methods, but to add a different approach - not scientific, but
artistic, intuitive, existential (like Buddhist analysis, or Spinoza's analysis of emotion/affectation, etc.)
When I look around today, what I see is horrible. We have just entered the New Dark Ages - The Corporate Middle Age.
When I was a kid, I believed that man is going to space to explore. How wrong was I! They sent satellites up, put them into stationary orbits so they
can spy on us, control us and kill us. The duration of that technological "leap" was really short and so it is very clear that something is very
wrong with this so called homo sapiens sapiens species.
What kind of advancement is that? We are constantly brainwashed, conditioned, restrained, plundered, kicked around, indebted, more or less turned into
a sophisticated kind of slaves (in developed countries that is). In undeveloped countries, it is not better than it was in the times of "great"
Roman civilization, or Mayan/Aztec blood drinkers and heart eaters.
They lied to us about the Cold War, it was a setup. Hitler - he was allowed to do what he was doing best (IBM helped Nazis decisively). All those wars
were in function of technology development, and what is going on today is following the same "logic".
Who is really in control: us or technology?
Maybe neanderthals were too smart to fall for this little bunch of toys which lead homo sapiens sapiens into such disastrous degeneration. When I hear
that our brains are smaller today because they are more efficient - I really have to laugh. What a cozy scientific conclusion!
The intelligence of most people is on a level of homo erectus, or lower. I have noticed, and many on this forum have too, that people's intelligence
deteriorates. Intelligence is a sum of experience - the key word is learning, never stop learning (that is a definition of a genius, someone who never
stops learning). But modern civilization denies this to almost everyone. It needs stupid slaves who know to do what they are asked to do, and the rest
is just "having fun". This is enormous degeneration of our species. I could elaborate a lot more, but is it really necessary?
I say that homo erectus never went extinct. It simply mimicked the true homo sapiens, physiologically is the same, but it lacks the spiritual gene,
which cannot be seen under microscope. You get the meaning of this.
The Theory of survival, well, it doesn't say anything about intelligence, though those who stand by it claim that being cunning, ruthless, cruel,
treacherous, murderous, brigandish, etc. is the sign of heightened intelligence and is a positive thing that is brought upon us by her majesty
Evolution. Thank you very much.
