GIANTS AMONG MEN
There is of course the many reports of a “race of giant humans or such” inhabiting the American Pacific Northwest. These came from an area which has yet to be fully explored. Certainly ancient peoples around the Earth have reported these giants for thousands of years.
It was suspected for some time by several later researchers that these unusually tall people were earlier versions of human-Martian hybrids. (The Martian connection was suspected only after the invasion. At the time they were thought to have been hybrids from an unknown race on Earth.) This was confirmed when Robert Wadlow’s coffin was opened some years after the First Martian War to reveal the fact he had a second row of teeth and six toes on each foot!
From 2 Samuel 21:20 we read, “And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant.” Later we read, “There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies. And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.”
One may recall as recently as 1406, Frenchmen, who were the first ‘modern’ Europeans to land in the Canary archipelago, found a tall, fair-skinned people – the Gaunches – who believed themselves to be the last survivors of the fictional biblical flood. The Europeans massacred all the Gaunches who were certainly quite different in appearance to any European, and there are no known descendants anywhere of this race of ‘humans’ whose average height was just over seven feet. A skull from the Gaunches found in the post-war rubble of a Paris museum would show two rows of teeth. They had all been ancient hybrids who had been given a myth to believe in order to mask their truly fantastic past. They had adapted to Earth but not to earthmen. Humanity had failed those people as it would eventually fail all of us for a few weeks in 1901. We have to do a lot better in the future if we are to survive.
Perhaps we should have remembered the ‘Nephilim’ (men of large stature) in Genesis 6:2-4. “That the sons of god saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.” “There were giants in the Earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of god came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” The ‘sky gods,’ had “arrived from the heavens to mate with humans.” Hybrids, or were they representatives of the ‘others’?
Ezekiel 1:4-5 also spoke of creatures from above. “And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.”
These creatures from above were also said in ancient times to have abducted humans as recalled in 2 Kings 2:11-12. “And E’li’jah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And E’li’sah saw it and he cried, my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more…”
Are we to forget the ‘story’ of Goliath from 1 Samuel 17:4-5, who was said to be “six cubits and a span” in height (ten feet)? “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. And he had a helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of brass.” Even though this was pleasant fiction where did the author get the idea of men on Earth as tall as a 10-foot high giant named Goliath? This could easily have been dismissed if not for the fact that giants are found throughout ancient texts including the ancient writings of the Sanskrit of India.
And from Deuteronomy 3:11 we are told of Og the king of Bashan from the tribe of Rephaim said to have slept on an iron bed measuring 6×13-1/2 feet. The bed was reportedly eventually kept at Rabbah in a museum in his honor. And what of the tribes of Anakim and Emim who were all said to have been “giants among men.” Was it an outpost of hybrids perhaps?
It is said giants once freely roamed the countryside of Cornwall, England, and in old London the two giants, Gog and Magog, were made captive by legendary Roman Brutus in tales of ancient Britain. Some European myths speak of these men as cruel, stupid, and often involved in cannibalism. Only later would we seek answers to these mysteries.
Projecting into a possible future Professor Huxley wrote of man’s potential evolutionary development. Perhaps he was thinking of off world ‘influences’ when he wrote, “[Man], unless the order of the universe has come to an end, will undergo further modifications, and at last cease to be man, giving rise to some other type of animated being.” Who is to say the hybrids are not that first evolutionary step into that mysterious future?
There are of course many ancient reports of strange “men of great height” being seen on Earth. It is said Daniel saw one such being on the banks of the Tigris river in 538 B.C.E. Was this a man or some type of metallic craft?
On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, I found myself on the banks of that great river that is the Tigris; I looked up and saw a man clothed in linen with a belt of gold from Ophir round his waist. His body gleamed like topaz, his face shone like lightning, his eyes flamed like torches, his arms and feet sparkled like a disk of bronze, and when he spoke his voice sounded like the voice of a multitude.
There is also one report of great interest among a great many from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries of great men. Giant men on Earth were not confined only to ancient times and reported by ancient sages. During the 18th century races of giants were found in Patagonia at the southern tip of South America living in a secluded area. In 1764 Admiral John Byron sailing for the British Navy made his way to the coast of Patagonia where he and his crew came upon “a tribe of gigantic natives.” Standing next to one of the men of the tribe made a six foot two inch officer of his ship “feel as a pygmy among giants.” Recording these events Midshipman Phillip Clerke wrote the natives were all “certainly nine feet, if they did not exceed it.”
Perhaps one of the strangest encounters of tall strangers not necessarily a group of giants, comes from the cold winter 1777-78 Valley Forge encampment of George Washington. Most ‘history’ books appear to have forgotten to mention this singular series of encounters. It seems that a group of local ‘natives’ had taken up residence in a nearby wooded area. It was not your average native area however; as reports indicate the “hovering lodges” could take to the sky. Other reports indicate the ‘tribe’ referred to as the “green skins” lived in several “glowing globes.” Several times these green medicine men provided Washington with information on the movements of the British troops keeping his Continental Army well advised. There is nothing written by Washington nor his staff as to whether or not the general suspected that these ‘natives’ were anything other than a very strange group of local Indians. History would record that Mr. Washington had other, perhaps more pressing, matters on his mind. Naturally these events failed to make it into the standard history books.
In 1888, the same year the people of Old London were dealing with a madman named by the local press as Jack the Ripper, the people of Clearwater, Minnesota were discovering seven large skeletons of men over seven feet tall. All of these remains showed double rows of teeth in both upper and lower jaws. They also displayed six fingers or six toes on both hands or both feet, but not six on hands and feet. The remains had been buried in a small burial mound, at one time thought to have been a natural hill, in sitting positions (a position of respect by those who placed them in the mound). Only later were we able to understand that these remains belonged to Martian/human hybrids. We also discovered all of these giants had been killed in some sort of a battle which had been retold by local natives for many years.
On the other end of the size spectrum we even had a few reports of small green children entering our world through caves. One of the earliest was recounted in 11th century England near Woolpit. A boy and a girl walked out of a cave whose skin was a light green. They spoke no English but after a few months were able to relate to the startled people of Woolpit they had come from a land with no Sun. (This was interrupted to mean they lived their lives underground.) They seem to have been taken into the village of Woolpit to live out their lives as there were no further reports after they were discovered.
An eerily similar event occurred in August of 1887 from a cave near the Spanish town of Banjos. Once again a boy and a girl, said to be around 6 or 7 years old and medium green in color, walked out of a cave. This time the report also included the detail that their eyes appeared to be Oriental in appearance. As before, neither of the children spoke the local language and sadly the little boy soon died. However, the little green girl lived until 1892 and learned by then enough Spanish to explain they had come to the cave from a land without a Sun. She also added that she and her little companion had been “swept into the cave by a whirlwind.” Later efforts by the Committee to locate her grave or anyone who could point it out were fruitless. One photograph of the little girl was found which had been kept by the local priest but being an old black and white image no color could be shown. However, it did show the Oriental eyes, a distinctive gray skin and a child of exceptional beauty.
