I regret that I have but one star to give to this thread.



[And, what the heck is TEDx?! (Doesn't appear to be affiliated with TED (Sapling Foundation), or *is* it?)]

"In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)"


Fascinating material. It's always amusing watching skeptics take one isolated aspect of this large phenomenon, introduce a shadow of doubt, and somehow think they have disproved the 100+ other corresponding aspects. Just like spirituality, consciousness, existential philosophy, or 9/11, UFOs, etc., very large issues cannot be rationalized by predominately left-brained individuals. It requires an ability to juggle dozens of lines of thought at the same time - i.e., intuition. Right-brained people with training in scientific disciplines are truly formidable. Like the man featured in this video, Jim Vieira. It is a combination of excellent research + intuition.

I invite everybody to reflect on this phenomenon. The people who consistently naysay these theories tend to have a very limited ability to combine natural intuition with accumulated education.

"Covered up?'

You do realize that those are old newspaper clippings, right?

So, they covered it up by telling newspaper reporters about it?

Harte


Newspaper clippings from a very long time ago, tucked away in a place where practically no one will(has) ever see(n) them.

And, evidence that historical / archaeological exhibits that have clearly been altered, hidden or destroyed.

Yeah, covered up.

I've never heard of this material before. Not many others have either (a mere 40,000 views - 2 of which are mine!). There are 8 Billion people on this planet. Let's assume, graciously, that he has enlightened the same number publicly thru his seminars and articles. That's .001%, or 1/1000th of 1% of the earth's population.

Yeah. Covered up!

Considering the groundbreaking implications - this is our planet's true history, yet it's not taught in schools as such.


Nah published several times. When I was more interested in the fringe in the 70's I got the books on this subject by Corliss - they are still available and have his research on all the reported giants

Ancient man; A handbook of puzzling artifacts, ISBN 0-915554-03-8

Strange Artifacts: A source book on ancient man, ISBN 0-9600712-6-1

I found these originally in the public library and later got my copies

So they did a terrible job of 'covering up', lol

Its not a 'true history' unless you can produce a bod

Just how old are you? 'Giants' is one of the more common fringe theories - we even have a sticky in this forum because it comes up constantly

It'll be interesting to see how much attention this gets www.msnbc.msn.com...


It in a thread here on ATS already - one will have to wait for the paper and the quality of the evidence - and for confirmation of it. If so it will be kewl!!


15,000 years, that's not long so what does that say for the appearance of new species and how it actually happens? how could they have spread around the world so quickly? I think it's a great idea to get the protection process going now. It would be a travesty if they declared open season on them. Think about this, we humans love to complain when aliens kidnap us and play doctor and then as soon as we find something we can dominate we are hanging them from our mantles. Maybe this is the big news of 2012?

Twice now I've quoted (here at ATS somewhere) from and linked to an old newspaper story from that same era that tells us that a turnip was locally grown and so large that they hollowed it out and used it for an academy for boys.

Unfortunately, the Smithsonian also "covered up" that story, as well as the one (also from the very same era) about watermelons so large that they planted the seeds near an old home that needed to be moved and the resulting melons lifted the house off the ground, facilitating the effort. Again, covered up by those rotten PTB!

I don't know why people deny that Giant people could have existed in the past. I have the Giantism Gene, my whole family on my mothers side has it. It doesn't work right anymore, it probably may have generations ago but the genetics got flawed.
Being seven to eight feet tall at the time would make them look like giants. I grew from five foot two to six foot one in three months one summer. The gene shut of, thankfully. This gene seems to be more predominant in Europe. It may have something to do with neandarthals or another species that mated with modern humans. I think humans were all short at one time, I think the blending made them taller. I think that they got it wrong about coming out of Africa also, I think we originated somewhere else.

Since I probably have the neanderthal gene, as many do, my ancestors probably go back millions of years. It would be imbecilic to say they started with modern man. I don't understand the perception of those saying that man is a young species when in fact we are almost all blended with older species of Humanoids. Without their genetics, we would probably be extinct. I am proud that many of my ancestors were not modern humans. Everyone should be.

I also believe that the monkeys and apes broke off the original humanoids and evolved into their present bodies. I think they got it all backwards, the evidence can be used to prove it either way, there is no evidence that proves the present consensus.

If it was just one article, I would agree, but there are hundreds of newspaper articles from that era. A couple of years ago I went through the NYT online archives and found lots of articles/headlines of these reports. There are also lots of similarities, like the consistent claim of double rows of teeth.

Gotta agree- the Bible has the most accurate record of those creatures. They are going to appear again in our days as these are the last days like Noah's day as Christ warned. The research rush by aliens and the military on combining dna clones and human technology is a sign of that.

Naiveté? Oh do you even know where and how archaeologists are paid? I use to work with one who was independently wealthy - so who controlled him? So you're saying every government, educational institute, private college, donors, and foundations are 'in on the conspiracy'? Some of these organizations are Christian based, giants are in the bible - so why would they want that suppressed? Sorry your answer is to general, be more specific

What?

The average height for neandertals was similar to today's men, around 5 and a half to 6 feet tall.
Even if you do have some genetic material from neandertal, it wouldn't mean you could grow to 8+ feet tall.

Let me be clear about what I meant by "hearing of this material" before - I'm familiar somewhat with Giant being stories, and even comparisons to the Nephilim, I just never gave it much thought. By 'this material' I specifically mean: 1) this professionally put together of a presentation, 2) done recently, 3) by a respectible entity (TED, even if 'x'), and 4) by a expert in the field of masonry.

I applaud and even envy you, that you have been privy to this knowledge. Again.. maybe it is readily available, but people should not have to be searching for it. It should be taught. It should be on display. It is our history. So, yes, to a certain degree should be considered a 'cover up'. Nevermind the tainted submissions to the Smithsonian.


Its not a 'true history' unless you can produce a bod


I beleive they did. And, it dissappeared, no? (again, the Smithsonian)


Just how old are you? 'Giants' is one of the more common fringe theories - we even have a sticky in this forum because it comes up constantly


Old enough to remember life before MTV, the Ollie North Iran-Contra Affair, and the horrible taste of Tab. Can't say that expert maneuverability around a Conspiracy site should be given the utmost credibility for this material, would you agree?

So, you're suggesting that an abnormally large turnip and entire race of giant beings are of the same, paramount importance?! Okay, buddy.

There were probably more species of Hominoids than Cromagnum and Neanderthals. We have uncovered those species but there could be more. The act of burning the dead started before any written text, maybe most of the dead were cremated. Some ancient cultures made their ancestors bones into burial artifacts and others buried their bones under their living quarters. There were a lot of strange traditions in the past. The people in India still burn the bodies of their deceased, using traditional wood flame. It is very expensive to buy wood there. They are finally being convinced that natural gas cremation is acceptable, maybe they will have more trees in the future in India.

Why teach something that has no basis in fact? You appear to have a great deal of faith in 'Ted'. However his claims lacks evidence. So I see you also believe his claim against the Smithsonian? Why based on what?

You cannot judge the Smithsonian on one man's claim - you might want to actually investigate the claim against them instead of holding them quility

Sorry don't understand your point here

The giants were probably just humans with a gene that made them grow. Where this gene originated is what I am interested in finding out. I am sure it was a mutation that happened long ago and if it was working right, the whole family line could have been giants. This is all that the evidence read says from ancient writings, that there were giants at the time. Being that the doors on lots of old structures and churches were high, I feel that very tall people were not really rare. The rulers of these ancient civilizations would have drafted these big people into their armies if they could just to intimidate the enemy. Nothing seems out of the ordinary as to this being a possibility, everything is based on perception. Being distantly related to Big Louie Moilanen gives me an open perspective when it comes to this kind of stuff. People had horns throughout history also and they were still humans.

I'll make a bet the giants are similarly related to us as is Bigfoot, Neanderthal and Denisovans and that we all are the product of genetic manipulation by advanced races of humanoid beings who have been coming to Earth for hundreds of thousands of years maybe more
