"Thousands of similar patterns have been found in the Middle East".

Just look like ancient dwelling places to me.

You are right: they look like remnants of dwelling places to me too.

Someone obviously needed some attention....


But one thing is certain: they do NOT look anything like the Nasca lines/petroglyphs/whatever.

Thats old news.Thats just houses with fence for animals. Interesting that excavation still didnt happened. Bedouins told that built some old people. Without excavation we hear that wheels are 2000 y.o.
Anyway,I dont think it have same purpose as Nasca lines.

These are not geoglyphs.

These symbols must cover a large area to be seen by satellite. Maybe this guy lived there: See giant skeleton Saudi Arabia on google. This human skeleton is 30 feet long.

LOL. You keep repeating this message about every week or so, but you ignore what every kid now knows: those photos were Photoshopped. The guys who did it even publically admitted they had done it.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


December 14, 2007Since 2004 this doctored image has helped give legs to tall tales of ancient giant humans. (Read full story.)

At least one version of the storypublished in the March 2007 issue of India's Hindu Voice monthly and cited in countless blog entries and emails this yearclaims that a National Geographic Society team helped make the "discovery" in India. (The National Geographic Society owns National Geographic News.)

The picture, however, is an innocent fake.

The image was lifted from Worth1000, a Web site that hosts contests for digital artists. Created by an artist using the alias IronKite, the picture placed third in a 2002 competition titled "Archaeological Anomalies 2," which asked contestants to create a hoax archaeological discovery.

Man, this guy gets around! said IronKitewho does not want his real name used in this storyafter hearing his work had been used to back up the latest false reports.

http://news.national...leton-pictures/



Canadian artist IronKite used this mastodon-excavation phototaken in 2000 in Hyde Park, New Yorkas the basis for his entry in an online photo-manipulation contest.

The altered photo lies behind persistent Internet rumors, spread since 2004, of archaeologists unearthing ancient human giants.

IronKite digitally superimposed a human skeleton over the mastodon-dig photo, he told National Geographic News in December 2007.

The artist later added a man holding a shovel. His clothing was re-colored to match that of the man in the above, authentic picture. The goal, IronKite said, was to make the shoveler appear to be part of the excavation team.

http://news.national...res/photo2.html



Though not used to create the skeleton image on the first page of this gallery, this second authentic photo of a New York State mastodon excavation gives another perspective on the dig that served as the foundation for the digital artwork.

The artwork, in turn, inspired false reports of an ancient-giant discovery.

IronKite, the digital artist, had nothing to do with the subsequent hoax.

To create the photo collage, he said, I kept most of the wood frame from the dig site and replaced most of the muddy dirt with ground from the skeleton picture, using a fuzzy 'brush' to fade the two so no hard lines would be visible."

http://news.national...res/photo3.html


As if one fake giant skeleton weren't enough, other images across the Internet have bolstered claims of massive human remains.

Like IronKite's image on the first page of this gallery, this image by Anakinnnn has been used in blog postings and emails about "discoveries" of ancient behemoths.

Also like IronKite's image, this one originally appeared on Worth1000, a site that hosts competitions for digital artists.

The site's two Archaeological Anomalies contests invited entrants to create a hoax archaeological discovery.

"Be open minded," the contest organizers added, "there are many mysteries buried beneath the earth.

http://news.national...res/photo4.html


This digitally altered picture has been featured widely on blogs debating the existence of ancient giantsspeculation fueled in part by false reports of huge skeletons unearthed in India, Saudi Arabia, and elsewhere.

The image, created by Amaranto, appears to be a less than serious attempt at a hoaxnote the huge revolver in the skeleton's hand.

Avi Muchnick runs Worth1000, the Web site that sponsored the photo-manipulation contests that inspired the fake photos in this gallery.

We have thousands of people who regularly create images like these in image-editing tools like Phoenix and Photoshop," Muchnick said. "So it's no surprise to us when some of these images get passed around the Web as authentic depictions of actual events."

I like the comment a reader had left in the article... "Keep digging, you'll find the stargate eventually."

Yeah, so let's give Mike here a spade.

I will bet he will find the "Hollow Earth" and be kidnapped by evil gremlins.

They look complete rubbish compared to Nazca.  Tatty lines/shapes and do not show anything recognizable. Poor comparison to the Nazca lines, I reckon Homo Erectus could have done better seeing that he mastered the sea.

Of course there is always an elaborate cover story to attack this photo. Let us assume the photo is true and thousands of years ago giant humans once walked this earth. How would it affect the scientific communiy, epecially the theory of evolution. What changes would have to be made in the sciences of biology, anthropology and so forth? Would the scientist who discovered this giant skeleton get a nobel prize for making one of the greatest discoveries in history?
