And it never ceases to amaze me how some humans can be fooled and fobbed off by mainstream dogma too, without questioning the actual evidence.
More and more ancient artifacts and sites are being found as the technology to find them moves on...and each and every day more and more evidence
including bones is found that mankind's history is not how evolutionary science would have us all believe.
Getting back to the OP -
Captain Cook and other early explorers detailed accounts of coming across Giants on their travels.
"But one day (without anyone expecting it) we saw a giant who was on the shore [near today’s Puerto San Julián, Argentina], quite naked, and
who danced, leaped, and sang, and while he sang he threw sand and dust on his head. Our captain [Magellan] sent one of his men toward him, charging
him to leap and sing like the other in order to reassure him and to show him friendship. Which he did. Immediately the man of the ship, dancing, led
this giant to a small island where the captain awaited him. And when he was before us, he began to marvel and to be afraid, and he raised one finger
upward, believing that we came from heaven. And he was so tall that the tallest of us only came up to his waist. Withal he was well proportioned. . .
. The captain named the people of this sort Pathagoni.*
The etymology of the word is unclear, but Patagonia came to mean “Land of the Bigfeet.”
Interesting if the name Patagonia really comes from Land of the Bigfeet,because names of places normally have some truth behind them.
Although these accounts are often just dismissed as myths about unusually tall meN, there does seem to be a fair few accounts to dismiss!
Giants of Patagonia
What is also disturbing is to hear that the curator of the Smithsonian Institute in the 1920/30s was a keen exponent of eugenics and beleived evidence
of any sort of gigantism within the human race should be immediately disposed of. Although denied by the institute there are a number of accounts of
giant bones as well as other out of place artifacts being disposed off instead of investigated by the respected faculty.
Bones aren't an infinite resource - there are only a few bones used to back up mainstream anthrapology and a huge amount of assumption has been made
that Home Erectus became Homo Sapiens over thousands perhaps millions of years... Therefore IF bones have been destroyed early in the last Century,
that would have provided proof of the existence of gigantism within the human race, then it's hardly fair for Science to be now shouting - "Show us
