Gigantopithecus and Meganthropus are names given to giant hominids found by paleontologists, but since they don't fit very well in the 'proposed'  
evolutionary chain, they don't get much attention. Meganthropus is the giant Java man who inhabited Southeast Asia over a million years ago. He stood
12 feet tall and weighed 500 and over pounds.

  • The Hebrew scriptures as preserved in the Old Testament and in the Talmud and Midrashim, narrate that among the races of the world
    in a previous age were races of giants, “men of great size and tremendous strength and ferocity,� who were destroying other races, but
    also were turning upon each other and destroying themselves.

  • The Book of Genesis (6: 4) narrates that in the antediluvial time "There were giants in the earth in those days."
  • The Greek Book of Baruch narrates that over four hundred thousand of the race of giants were destroyed by the Flood. After the Flood there
    were only a few districts where some of them remained alive. When after a number of centuries another catastrophe ruined the world and the
    Israelites left Egypt and sent a few men to explore Palestine, those reported that the people of the land were generally of tall stature, but there
    were others they saw who were giants, the sons of Anak,  and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so were we in their sight.
  • (Numbers 13: 22).The people is greater and taller than we . . . and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakim [giants] they have a few
    families and lived in Hebron

Joshua 13:12 and Deut. 3:11 At the time when the Israelites approached the fields of Bashan in the Transjordan, only  Og king of Bashan remained of
the remnant of the giants
 The other individuals of monstrous size had been annihilated in the meantime. His bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in
Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits is the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man. The text implies that at the
time the book of Deuteronomy was written the bedstead of Og was still in existence and was a wonder for the onlookers.

The giants were the remnant of a race close to extinction. Og was “of the remnant of the giants that dwelt in Ashtaroth and Edrel� (Joshua 12: 4).
They were also called Emim, or the furious ones. “The Emim dwelt therein [in Moab of the Transjordan] in times past, a people great and many, and
tall as the Anakim, which also were accounted giants, as the Anakim; but Moab calls them Emim� ( ). This branch of the giants was already extinct; but
two cosmic ages earlier, in the days of Amraphel, king of Shinar, and Abraham the Patriarch, Eimim flourished in the Transjordan (Genesis 14: 5).

Even the Catholic patron saint of travel, St. Christopher, was, by all accounts, a giant. Jacques de Voragine, in The Golden Legend, wrote of St.
Christopher: "He was of gigantic stature, had a terrifying mien, was twelve coudees tall.� A coudee is equal to or larger than the English foot.
According to this ancient account, St. Christopher stood from 12 to 18 feet tall, a fact that was erased from church history. While Western icons don't
picture St. Christopher as a giant, those of the Eastern churches do. His story, in brief, is that his name was originally Offro or Offerus and he was a giant
of great strength, but of a sensitive nature, traveling in search of the greatest god.He was possibly of royal birth. His search eventually led him to a
strange occupation as a human ferry, hiring out to literally carry people across rivers too deep for a normal human to cross. The legend has Jesus as
one of his customers. Jesus blessed him and told him that he had carried on his shoulders all the sins of the world. He then asked St. Christopher to
plant his great walking-staff in the ground. At once, a wonderful tree miraculously sprang up.

In South Africa, a giant footprint of a woman measuring over 4 feet long has been carbon dated at aproximately 9 million years old. Pointing to the
probability of this being a female human-like species' foot, proportionally the two-legged being would need to be some 30 feet tall! The local African
people commonly refer to this as a highly revered and sacred site. Giants, twice the size of gorillas, were found in Java.

The petrified remains of a giant were found in South Africa. A well-known anthropologist declared that these remains showed that these man's ancestors
must have been giants.

Laetoli tracks. At a site in Kenya, called Laetoli, 30 miles south of Olduvai Gorge, Mary Leakey discovered human footprints in 1977. Although some
evolutionists reject them as human, other scientists recognize them to be clearly human—and therefore date those who made the tracks to be 3.75
million years ago. But evolutionists teach that no people lived back then

Meganthropus was a race found in Australia -estimated 12 feet tall. These people were found with mega tool artifacts, so their humaness is difficult to
Plaster casts of giant  footprints found in Australia may be viewed at Rex Gilroy's Butterfly Museum near Tamworth, NSW, Australia, together with many
other interesting artifacts.

In old river gravels near Bathurst, NSW, huge stone artifacts -- clubs, pounders, adzes, chisels, knives and hand axes -- all of tremendous weight, lie
scattered over a wide area. These weigh anything from 8, 10, 15, to 21 and 25 pounds, implements which only men of tremendous proportions could
possibly have made and used. Estimates for the actual size of these men range from 10 to 12 feet tall and over, weighing from 500 to 600 lbs.

A fossicker searching the Winburndale River north of Bathurst discovered a large quartzitised fossil human molar tooth, far too big for any normal
modern man. A similar find was made near Dubbo, N.S.W.

Prospectors working in the Bathurst district in the 1930's frequently reported coming across numerous large human footprints fossilised in shoals of red

Even more impressive were fossil deposits found by naturalist Rex Gilroy around Bathurst. He excavated from a depth of 6 feet (2 m) below the surface a
fossil lower back molar tooth measuring 67 min. in length by 50mm. x 42 mm. across the crown. If his measurements are correct, the owner would have
been at least 25 ft. tall, weighing well over 1,000 lbs!

At Gympie, Queensland, a farmer, Keith Walker, was ploughing his field when he turned up the large fragment of the back portion of a jaw which still
possessed the hollow for a missing lower back molar tooth. This is now in Rex Gilroy's possession. The owner of the tooth would have stood at 10 feet tall.

In the Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains NSW, a Mr P. Holman found in ironstone protruding from a creek bank the deeply impressed print of a large
human-like foot. The print was that of the instep, with all 5 toes clearly shown. This footprint measures 7 inches across the toes. Had the footprint been
complete it would have been at least 2 feet (60 cm in length, appropriate to a 12 foot human. However, the largest footprint found on the Blue Mountains
must have belonged to a man 20 feet tall!

A set of 3 huge footprints was discovered near Mulgoa, south of Penrith, N.S.W. These prints, each measuring 2 ft long and 7 inches across the toes,
are 6 ft. apart, indicating the stride of the 12 ft. giant who left them. These prints were preserved by volcanic lava and ash flows which "occurred millions
of years" before man is supposed to have appeared on the Australian continent (if one is to believe the evolutionary theory):

Noel Reeves found monstrous footprints near Kempsey, N.S.W. in sandstone beds on the Upper Macleay River. One print shows a toe 4 inches (10cm)
long and the total toe-span is 10 inches (25cm) - suggesting that the owner of the print may have been 17 feet tall.

It is certain the Aborigines were not the first to reach Australia. Anthropologists maintain mainland Aborigines are in fact quite recent arrivals who ate their
predecessors who were akin to the New Guinea natives.

Aborigines themselves admit in their ancient folklore that this land was inhabited by several groups of men, as well as giants, before they settled here.

The Guadeloupe woman.
In 1812, on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, a fully human skeleton was found, lacking only the head and feet. It was found inside extremely hard,
very old limestone, which was part of a formation over a mile in length.

In accordance with their theory, evolutionists date that rock at 25 million years! You will not find the Guadeloupe woman mentioned in the textbooks, since
this find would disprove evolutionary strata dating.

Four jaw fragments and thousands of teeth have been found in China of "gigantopithecus blacki"--named after the discover. Based on the size of the
teeth and deep jaws, its size has been estimated at around 10 feet and as tall as 12 feet, 1200 pounds. Tools have been found in the same area as
giganto as well.

In 1944 an accidental discovery of an even more controversial nature was made by Waldemar Julsrud at Acambaro, Mexico. Acambaro is in the state of
Guanajuato, 175 miles northwest of Mexico City. The strange archaeological site there yielded over 33,500 objects of ceramic;stone, including jade; and
knives of obsidian (sharper than steel and still used today in heart surgery). Jalsrud, a prominent local German merchant, also found statues ranging
from less than an inch to six feet in length depicting great reptiles, some of them in ACTIVE ASSOCIATION with humans - generally eating them, but in
some bizarre statuettes an erotic association was indicated. To observers many of these creatures resembled dinosaurs. Jalsrud crammed this collection
into twelve rooms of his expanded house. There startling representations of Negroes, Orientals, and bearded Caucasians were included as were motifs
of Egyptians, Sumerian and other ancient non-hemispheric civilizations, as well as portrayals of Bigfoot and aquatic monsterlike creatures, weird human-
animal mixtures, and a host of other inexplicable creations. Teeth from an extinct Ice Age horse, the skeleton of a mammoth, and a number of human
skulls were found at the same site as the ceramic artefacts. Click here for more information

Morocco Giants
·   A prehistoric tool kit was found in Agadir, Morocco. The 300,000-year-old set of tools was clearly designed to be used by some one with hands
corresponding to those of a 16-foot tall giant.

Headless skeleton reported found in Nicaragua (New York Times, February 14):
Press accounts say that the skeleton of a gigantic man, with head missing, has been unearthed at El Boquin, on the Mico River, in the Chontales district.
The ribs are a yard long and four inches wide and the shin bone is too heavy for one man to carry. "Chontales" is an Indian word, meaning "wild men."
We are perhaps safe in predicting that if and when the scientific eye is cast upon this Chontalean Gargantua the result will be the same "thunders of
silence" that heralded the discovery of 200 huge skeletons in a cave in Calaveras County, California. But theosophists may be content with the fact that if
all the evidences of giant races among the ancient inhabitants of the western world were laid end to end, they would reach back to Atlantis.

In the Philippines a giant human skeleton was found at gargation, Measuring 17 feet long.

·   One of legendary Arthur's men, Owain ap Macsen, slew, and was slain by, a giant at Dinas Emrys in Snowdonia.
The cairn at the top of Yr Wyddfa, topmost peak of Snowdon, is said to be the tomb of the giant Rhitta Gawr, who was vanquished by Arthur.
Rhith means "a form, a shape, a figure, an appearance, a guise." Gawr means "giant.''

·   Laotian mythical giants were known as Yaksa.

Tools found in Morocco are so large their users must have been at least 12 foot tall.

Toltec Giants
·   The four gods created the giants who were very large men endowed with enough strength to uproot trees with their hands.  They are called
Quinametzin Huetlacame, which means large and deformed men.
Nahuatl codexes go as far as to mention a king among the giants, Tlatlotl, "who built great things and was taken for a god."
Another chronicle describes how Xelhua, another giant, built an artificial column "in the shape of a pyramid".
The Codex Vaticanus 3738 depicts one of these giants.


In the late 1950's during road construction in Homs southeast Turkey, Many tombs of Giants were indeed unearthed. These tombs were 4 meters long,
and when enterd in 2 cases the human thigh bones were measured to be 47.24 inches in length. They calculated that the person who owned this Femur
probably stood at fourteen to sixteen feet tall. A cast of this bone is seen at the Creationist museum in Texas.

The Gediz track. A footprint found in volcanic ash, near Demirkopru, Turkey, was found in 1970. The track of a running man was found in strata dated by
evolutionists at 250,000 years in the past.

South America Giants
·   In the Captain Magellan's ship’s log  mentions  a race of giants living on the Pacific coast of South America.
Captain Cooke recorded actually capturing a giant over nine feet tall and tying him to his ship's mast.   The giant freed himself from the ropes and was
last seen when he dived overboard.

Inca Giants
·   Before the Incan times, Wiraccocha created the heavens and the earth, he first created a race of giants
