good deal! When I created the thread I should have listed a bunch of those in foresight of what was to come, but no big deal. I'll learn. I plan on putting together a thread with all the evidence sometime in the near future. Thanks for your link though!

I thought it was amazing also! And thank you! I don't understand why people only focus on Steve Quayles interest in the Armageddon, terrorism, world war 3 and the like.Sure everyone makes predictions that are wrong. It is human to err. But he has splendid research about Giants. Very detailed, very thorough. Thank you though!

No because giants are scary as sh*t, the bible has nothing to do with it

Besides, everyone knows giants were just aliens (I'm not trolling this is true, I read it in a book once)

It's possible they are. They seem to have disappeared since the 1890's. It is possible that reported "alien" phenomenon is associated with them. Like I said in a new thread I started, I swear to God, everything is connected! Giants even lead into aliens.

A lot of the hoax pictures, were never meant to be labeled as real. Most of them were entered into a photomanipulation contest, the topic was giants. This is the site a lot of the "hoax" pictures was taken from. A whole bunch have been removed by the artists, because of the whole people stealing them and trying to pass them off as real. A few are still up, search giant skeletons.

im all for being open minded about things like this, and i do beleive its possible for giants to have existed, but to say that proof of giants would be proof of god and the bible being true is just plain stupid.

its like saying ''well, the bible mentions fish, fish exist, therefor the bible is fact'' really, some people crack me up

For one it would give a certain amount of leverage to the Jesus freaks who believe the bible to be the word of god simply because Giants are mentioned therein.

sounds like you're in the business of hiding any evidence that contradicts what you want to believe instead of impartially following evidence wherever it may lead.

so much for the scientific method.


The bottom line is that All religions are pretty much bunk, designed to control the masses, keep them ignorant for the most part, and exploit them.



I would argue that the philosophies and teachings of Christ and other peace based religions in his time did nothing to control the masses. In fact Christ was considered a threat to the establishment and considered a trouble maker that subverted the "powers that were" at the time.
Many like to reduce religious messages to nothing more than harnesses you put on babies to keep them from wandering off. Not true.

If by "control" you mean not kicking in your neighbors door and clubbing him on the head, plundering his possessions, and dragging his wife back to a cave to have his way, then I for one am grateful for the influence of Christianity on the masses.

Many religious messages pointed out the worth and sacredness of a human life regardless of political position or title. How was this bad? May of in fact allowed your predecessors seed to develop, making you possible.

I have been one to believe that UFO'S/ALIENS are the same as FALLEN angels, AND GODLY angels. That the great deception is deceiving the whole world into believe that UFO's are of space origin, when they are really just demons and angels. All the abductions that end when the adbuctee invokes the name of Jesus, etc.

OP, there was an interesting show on History 2 today at 4am about Giants...I only caught bits and pieces but they referenced certain "Giants" from mythology and the Bible and actually had bones that archeologists felt were from "Giants". The show was "History's Mysteries" and as they are apt to repeat shows frequently, maybe you can catch the next airing.

Here's a link to their programming schedule

The truth needs to be kept hidden.

I watched on old Discovery Channel show on the Gaza pyramids and the show noted that ALL scientific study requests to examine the pyramid from a scientific aspect are routinely refused. The Egyptian government has also completely fenced in the area to keep everyone, except ticket paying customers to come in a look at the "tombs", out. I can understand this from a security measure as they don't want anymore attacks on the tourist trade.
More importantly, it appears that their government doesn't want any scientific research done on the pyramids.
Interesting shows. They talk about the possibility that they were used to generate power. Very interesting. Look em up on Netflix...

No. Because these things were Monsters, with a capital M.

Sarah Winnemucca's account of the Si-Te-Cah.

The only reason why I would advocate anything coming out about the giants, is if we needed to be worried about them coming back. Other than that, let them lie. There are things out there which you do not want to know about, trust me. In many cases, the Catholics might be wrong for keeping things in the Vatican archives, but in some cases they have legitimate motives.

I'm all for disclosure of the truth in most cases, but some things do need to stay buried.

I delved into the Giants realm long before I'd even heard or read of Steve Quayle. His sources regarding Giants are verifiable.

Checkout this web page:
www.xpeditionsmagazine.com...

Then tell me it's all fabricated BS.

It Isn't.

FINALLY someone with common sense and a true understanding of Jesus' message. Who cares about organized religion...The man said it ALL. No need for anything else. A star for you!

?

Just Bury knowledge and science, lock it away from Humanity?
For our own good.

?

By this reasoning, if there's an asteroid headed this way to smash into the Earth, nobody should be told and we should all go to our graves in ignorance. Rather than trying to deflect it, alter its course, or pulverize it. Or devise Some Way to deal with it.

No. Just keep everyone nicely Ignorant.

It's no frigging wonder than 9 out of 10 of my fellow Americans are turning away from Science and towards frigging Faith. It's just a whole lot more comfortable putting your trust in the invisible guy in the sky, and the Power of Prayer.

Maybe we should just return to book burnings. All those history and tech books would make find bonfire material.
And burn all us "secular socialists" with 'em, too.

Hey, why do we even Bother with sites like ATS? They might Harm our Minds!
In fact let's just Screw technology altogether and go back to the caves.


This thread is getting absolutely ridiculous and nowhere. Personally, if I were the moderator here I'd drop All the biblical/mythical stuff and concentrate on recorded/published Giant skeletal remains which have been unearthed within the past couple centuries. Some are actually quite recent. That is the logical place to start.

Not necessary, I welcome debate discussion and alternate arguments. It just seemed you were throwing the baby out with the bath water. I also think much senseless suffering and bad has come from our misinterpretation and application of religious teachings.
Where Christianity is today is pretty tolerant, and accepting of differing opinions and values. I would go so far as to say that the relatively peaceful environment created by a predominantly Christian based society has allowed Atheistic and other counter philosophies, belief systems, and arguments to fully evolve and prosper.
The true roots based Christian message (not the organized message) is pretty secure in its own skin.

The bible (IMHO) uses a lot of metaphor so how is it the term “Giants” has become a reference to the stature of these beings?

In modern times we have used the term "Giants of Industry" or pun intended "Giants of Comedy" which refers not to the height or even physical stature but being, the best at what they do.

To me the so called Giants referenced in the bible could very well just be great beings (Aliens or Humans or whatever) revered for their technology, military prowess, engineering skills, etc… Not the actual physical depictions we have always been led to believe!
