There are two stories that I always thought to be made until I did some research myself.  The first being the giant human skeletons found all over North America when first being explored by Europeans.  From what I've read most were over eight feet tall and buried within mounds.  Some were claimed to have sandstones buried with them carved with hieroglyphics.  These were all found during a time when religion had heavy influence and all mysteriously disappeared on the trips across the Atlantic.

The other story I've heard has been documented one time in a newspaper in Arizona.  I can't remember the date off the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure in the late 1800's to early 1900's is when a guy exploring the Grand Canyon found some strange looking ruins.  He told his story in the newspaper the next day, but ever since then that area of the Grand Canyon has been blocked by(I know this makes me sound like a conspiracy theorist, but I assure I'm not) the government.  It was never mentioned again.

I can't say for sure these actually happened, but I personally believe they did.  I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of these events.

Yes, I've heard them, but never once in a context that is believable.

Cool. Yes, there is an area in the Grand Canyon. That is completely & totally blocked off from the public. Makes you wonder what is really "there."

wasnt there a giant skeleton found in the uk that was later debuniked as a fake?

I remeber seeing pictures of it when i was younger

but yeah i dont think giants could live in those areas. It just seems taht it is and would have been too arid to support "large people"

Yeah. But the people who did that. Only wanted to get "rich" or something. :/ I believe that was in the States around the 1800's.

I tink they might be thruth in Romania wore founde 80 skeletons over 4 meters high by pesants in 1950 and many other similar cases but nobody wose intresed by them, the sites wore closed like nothing ever happend they are used for agriculture or somenthing now and the skeletons wore confiscated by the goverment. Any old man in Romania knows by the existens of giant skeletons,  they wore many cases at that time,  nowone wos intresed by them because every time they foud one it wose took by the goverment and never heard about it again, popel are starting to forget and the young don't care, as the rest of the world they belive that are simple stories. The press don't write about this subjet becaus they don't want to get in troubel, onlly few articles can be found today http://www.libertate...950-217782.html

There have been plenty of instances over time where giant skulls, skeletons and giant artifacts have been found all around the world. Of course you don't hear about it at college, universtity or from the mainstream news, as it's covered up so well, it's as if it never existed or it will be called a hoax and some bull story will be cooked up and the people will believe it.

There have been fakes yes, but there have been confirmed real finds as well.

It must be a hoax...it has to be a hoax, because if these are real, indeed, which some finds have been confirmed to be exactly that. It throughs what we think we know and what they teach us about the human race and Earth's history into absolute turmoil.

This skull belonged to someone at least 12ft tall....... http://www.crystalin...m/incahead1.jpg
Skeptics say it's just a disformed skull, though there have been plenty of skulls found like this worldwide. Also the capacity of this skull is bigger than that of a human.

This is a giant bone found in Turkey..... http://members.toast...ntHumanLeg2.jpg

Giant axes found in Sumer..... http://www.bibliotec...tchers10_09.jpg

Skull of an unknown race found in Pennsylvania....... http://www.burlingto...skullhorned.jpg
When it was sent off for testing, it suddenly went missing, how convenient that was, eh.

But as these blow Darwninism out of the water and pretty much most accepted history, they are filtered out and either called or hoax or they will smear anyone who dares to speak out.

I looked at the crystalinks site where you got that skull picture from.

Well, here it is again, but with a bit extra (from the same site):

And then you will see it's not the skull of some 'giant', but of a normal human being who's head has been artificilally reshaped.

Oh, please.

Clearly you've never even been around a university history department, or you wouldn't try to suggest some sort of massive cover-up. The idea of a bunch of /any/ college professors, let alone historians, agreeing to any one thing exists only in CT mythology. Again, I just don't think absolute ignorance is the best place to criticize from. Or to theorize from, frankly.

Just because the photograph i used was from Crystalinks, does that mean i have to agree with the theories given by them? That's all they are... theories.

Not to mention the capacity of the skull and many others like it have a BIGGER capacity than a human skull, you can bash and mishape your head as much as you wish, but you can't change the capacity. That's a fact. And the capacity of these such skulls were over twice that for a human skull. That's also a fact. So either this skull goes against an obvious scientific fact or...... it didn't belong to a human being.
