This is probably a stupid question that probably belongs with those that deal with trolls, aliens and fairies, but I'll ask it anyway. Did giant people ever walk the earth? Up until very recently the scientific community was pretty much in agreement that miniature humans never walked the earth either, that is until they found an entire Island community's remains of fully proportionate people that were no higher than 2 feet tall. So the question needs to be asked, at least I think it does.
I ran across several internet sources (You know how reliable those can be!) that all assure their viewers that yes they in fact have walked the earth in times past. There supposedly have been many archeological digs that have produced the bones of people some seven, eight even nine feet taller than humans today. One website purports that the largest human height ever recorded to have existed is an unimaginable 36 feet tall. That is almost as high as a four story building!
Can this be? The advocates for this theory say that archeologist and institutions of higher learning all around the world have archived evidence of this fact. A fact that has been well hidden from the public record. This could well be just another conspiracy theory except for the fact that it is actually physically possible for humans to grow taller than 7 feet in height. Pituitary disorders as well as chromosomal anomalies both can contribute to humans that don't stop growing.
But that is not the same as giants some might say because such people end up sickly. Their bones can't support their height and they have trouble breathing because they can't take in the amount of oxygen their body's need. Most well know recorded pituitary giants have also had records of poor nutrition. This could very well mean that given an environment more rich in oxygen and with better nutrition that modern pituitary giants might not have been sickly. Is this the explanation for past giants?
If they did exist, how prolific were they? Were their communities of them around the world? Were they anomalies? How far back do they go? Were they a whole different species of human altogether? Could the sightings of Bigfoot, Yeti and Sasquash all be modern sightings of actual giant's instead? Lord Byron wrote in 1823 in his poem Don Juan that, truth is stranger than fiction. Well if giants did walk the earth than I will tend to agree with Lord Byron. So what say you, did giants ever walk the earth?
