That's an easy answer. These bones don't support the Darwinian agenda, that's why.
Okay, but... but evolution does exist, and even though it doesn't explain the genesis of life, it sure as heck works in our world. I'm not
against the idea of higher powers (even spiritual ones... maybe even met one- but I do have a problem with dogma) but to extrapolate a scientific
conspiracy of suppression is a little much.
What about the many earnest archeologists who are open minded... even religious? Many can hold two ideas (or more) in their brains... namely evolution
(designed by God as a mechanism to improve life... maybe?) and religion.
Not to say these large guys weren't found (in some cases it looks pretty likely) but to paint the whole establishment as evil because there is some
argument and the giant side came up lacking, is just ... wrong.
I, for what it's worth, remain open minded, though, and I suspect that many archeologists do too, despite their being slandered.
As I've stated many times before here on ATS, I don't have a problem with science, so I'm not "that guy" in my Christianity...having said that, I
don't believe you truly understand the total ramifications of that post, it involves MUCH MORE than anthropology.
Let me begin by flat out saying I believe in micro-evolution, not macro. Most secular ppl smile at that & say "isn't that cute" or 'what a
dumb@ss." Either is fine, that doesn't bother me. What does bother me is the intellectual dishonesty that exists in academia today. It's NOT about
"finding the truth", surely you get that, right? It's about "supporting the agenda." Fit OUR version of reality, don't let reality support
I really don't have to go into examples on what our children were taught in history books, versus WHAT REALLY HAPPENED in real life, do I? (I will if
you like, but it should be a given imo)
So what agendas does these bones disrupt?
Hey, guess what? Turns out giants are real. What does your holy book say about that? Which leads to the follow up questions; how & why?
Now this is a gross mischaracterization, but the evo chain usually goes from small to large, not WTF is that?! to small. This also ties in to the
religious theme, now that you have Creationists with a Machiavellian smile on their face doing that hand twisting thing & laughing manically.
Partial support for Greek mythology. (That should blow some pagans hair back.)
What else do you call giants that big? Titans. Absolutely. You can't hide a truth that big, so you make it a myth instead.
Belief in the supernatural.
If you believe more in the supernatural, (and everything that implies) it's never quite hopeless enough to rely on the govt. ANY GOVERNMENT, not just
the US. So they could never truly become our masters.
This is just a few topics off the top of my head that I laid out. I'm sure if I thought about it some more, I could come up with a few more, but I
think you get the idea.
Hope I haven't wasted your time, take care.
