They say its in granite then it CAN'T be a footprint, if you know how granite is formed then that proves it's NOT a footprint.

no, it doesn't prove it isn't. here's a possible scenario:

the lava starts to cool on the surface first. it forms a crust with a descending layer of cooling ash. mud may have mixed into the cooling lava as well. guy walking along steps on the crust, and it collapses, he yanks his foot out just as the whole thing is like freeze-dried. if it's ice age time, it would begin cooling suddenly with waves of increasing cold preceeding it in bursts, most likely.

i mean we have to take all the data, not just the most logical data, into consideration, just in case our haste to find the path of least resistance ends up throwing the baby out with the bath water

This is for the other people here that are hard of learning


Granite is formed when magma (molten rock) is forced between other rocks in the Earth's crust. It cools and crystallizes deep underground


important parts in bold!

Now do you know why its BS, like your theory undo

Don't use Islam as an example for anything,please. Islam also thinks its cool to stone women to death,or cut their hands off for getting an education. Islam also likes to destroy other religion's monuments. Islam is savage and warlike.


Christianity is also savage and warlike, as are other religions - it depends on how people want to take beliefs. Religions evolve to reflect the cultures that believe them and in doing so demonstrate all the best and worse of man.

That this has a Wikipedia page proves Ceiling Cat is all knowing, and most merciful, catnip be upon Him.

That wikipedia HAS such a page leaves me wondering....

With out running some relative tests on the rock print it is all speculation. Nothing can be corroborated about this rock print so all we have is a image which is not enough.

Great vid, though! S&F for you!


the range is like based on radiometric dating. You rely on the half-life of a particular radioactive isotope that decays at a predictable rate. The selection of the isotope is made based on the material you're testing and how old it is.

You should at least consider reading a wikipedia article if you don't have time to take a college class at some point.

With regard to the "footprint," the dating is referring to the age of the rock. I think someone simply carved the rock to create the footprint recently. They should be look for tool marks.

Oh really?

I guess you genius with your College classes and wikipedia articles, have the knowledge to determine the age of this rock huh?

Interesting.. I guess you got some good reference points. Oh wait you don't! And neither do all those geologist.

Its just guessing!! Get that!

Our history has so many secrets, I feel that we have been told lies for so long that the people who told these lies think that it is truth. Our past is far more unbelieveable than most people are lead to believe. There are many stories that support "giant " humans from so far long ago, perhaps this is how they built some of there megaliths. So much in engineering can change if the engineer is 20 feet taller than we are today.

Not just breasts, but also penis-shaped! I guess that giant got tired and lay down, eh?


Penis rocks

...and also vagina rocks and an example from our very own volcano at Red Crater Tongariro in New Zealand.

Ain't pareidolia a wonderful thing!

Selective Breeding can be the Key ! that and the Environmental Atmosphere!

as Our Earth had Gigantic Beasties Ions Ago! in the Timeline Stages

what we see now mostly Human Giants are from a Pituitary distorter Not by Selective Breading

Just a Thought

When i see Our Source of Food like Produce Goods ! isn't it Quaint that Most Edible Fruit & Vegetables Fit Perfectly in a Human Hand or Fingers (example= Grapes Peas etc ) of a Average Adult Height of 5 to 6 foot as a Civilized type 3 Being AKA God intended it to be ...

we may be A smaller version of Them Gods aka civ type 3 !

that's when you compare size of possible habitable Goldilocks Planets twice the size to Ours !

Granite is made from magma when it cools, not mud. Unless the "giant" was walking on molten rock as it was cooling (>1000 degrees C), barefoot, this isn't a real footprint.


Magma is in the earth, Lava is out of the earth. If it really is a giant's footprint, said individual could have walked on cooling lava... Just saying.

Interesting, but much more work to determine actual reality.

Volcanism being a factor, I can see an event line of causality. Could be a 3rd copy. First impression in mud of sedimentary, filled with secondary material, also solidifying to rock, hundreds of thousands or millions of years later, deep underground in rock form (relief), filled by magma, solidified, pushed to surface and sedimentary eroded away.

The Earth being 4.54 billion years old, there is plenty of time for a whole set of species to have evolved, lived and die several times. Hopi say 5 whole cycles of civilizations alone to present. Uncounted humanoid cycles.

Other considerations:

Visiting Species
Dimensional or time travelers

Much more geology and Archaeology, anthropology, chemistry to do. Forensic does seem to show it is a foot with the pathology of a mud-born impression.

Like I said, interesting.

That is really incredible. Was granite rock, marble softer many centuries ago. If they were, would that explain some of the constructed items? Did giants build the pyramids. Were they able to shape the stone because it was soft? Would their size and strength make moving giant rocks more feasible.

it is a natural formation people.

...and this


Given that granite is an igneous rock, primarily made up of visible crystals of the minerals quartz, feldspar, and mica, solidified from magma multiple kilometers beneath the surface of the Earth, the idea that anything could have left a footprint in it is f***ing hilarious

Kind of like the Earth being flat, humanity being horribly inbred as a result from starting out from one man and a rib woman that would logically have nearly identical DNA, a planetwide flood, men having one less rib than women, whales being fish, humans sharing originating and sharing a common ancestor from Mesopotamia due to The Tower of Babel Debacle, Plants are made on the third day before there was a sun to drive their photosynthetic processes (1:14-19). 1:11, "I have given you every herb ... and every tree ... for meat."
Since many plants have evolved poisons to protect against animals that would like to eat them, God's advice is more than a little reckless. Would you tell your children to go out in the garden and eat whatever plants they encounter? Of course not. But then, you are much nicer and smarter than God. 1:29, that snakes eat dust, the moon is a light as opposed to a planetary body, day and night were 'created' with an apparent ignorance to the necessity of the rotation of the Earth to make them happen, Jacob's use of Lamarckian inheritance to ensure his flock birthed animals with certain markings, God claims some insects have four legs, God being confused as to the value of Pi, and... oh, well...

move along, nothing to see here!

The definition of lava versus magma is meaningless in this scenario since granite is formed miles underground, and solidifies before it reaches the surface.

I generally love the folk on ATS, but I find myself unable to do anything but *facepalm* here more often than is healthy


Two Mongolians with achondroplasia and acromegaly do not prove that we had giant hominids running around (apparently underground through patches of molten rock) 200 million years ago. If they did then (ignoring their apparent penchant for playing around with magma) they were cripplingly unhealthy and were not likely to have survived long. The health issues involving achondroplasia are obvious, and the gentlemen with acromegaly is not using a cane to make a hipsterish fashion statement. Excesses of size are rare for good reason, and the body structures of most organisms make either extreme physically impossible. The mantid aliens are especially laughable since insects would collapse into themselves if they were bigger than even the average dog.

Large horses are pretty to look at, but are physically pretty useless more often than not. The Budweiser Clydesdales are bred for size, and are probably among the largest horses in the world. What they do not tell you is that most of them can only maintain a carriage pulling career of 5-7 years unlike smaller framed Clydesdales that can work for 10 years or more pulling much heavier loads more often. A quick Google search will show you that champions in actual working competitions (be it equine weight pulling, police dogs, cattle cutting horses, polo ponies, etc.) are generally pretty ordinary in appearance. Physical excess provides unique strains and challenges that often nullify any benefit as evidenced by the epidemic of career ending or life threatening fractures in super light and fast Thoroughbred racehorses, or high risk of shortened lifespan, hip dysplasia, and bloat in large dogbreeds such as Great Danes and Mastiffs.

Incredible if it is in fact a real fossilized footprint. I'm skeptical because there are far too many hoaxsters out there looking to get a story.

Not only were thier giants, many believe they are about to return.

This is where the tale of Jack and the beanstalk comes from, about a giants castle in the sky, full of gold.

Open your mind! What you see is not always true. Is the lake blue? Only from a distance. If you can see deep into the past you also should be able to see deep into the future. What's next?

Enlighten us our minds are open.

glaciers move rocks and boulders around like humans pick up dandelions and throw them. if it is really old, its possible it was somewhere else and moved. the only problem is how would a footprint get cast in granite like that, if that did happen he mustve burned the # out of his foot, or maybe he rubbed some special oil on his feet before he walked through a knowingly hot area so that he was able to walk over nearly-cooled granite but still heavy enough to make an indentation, lol. i don't know if they would be that smart, maybe he was hunting food and didnt care if his feet got burned.
