am editing a web-magazine about the South Pacific, and during
my research on the ancient statues on the islands I found
that the legends almost always tell about giants. And
to my surprise: So do legends all over the world!
Human-like creatures, much taller than normal persons. Like
the trolls of Norway, the Titans of Greece, Goliath from the
Bible. We have all heard and read about giants. But: What
if the stories are more than just fairytales and mythology,
what if the giants really have lived? That bones and fossils
are hidden from our eyes - that the authorities and archaeologists
keep the truth under cover? Luckily,
we today have the internet where we can share information,
- so let's us together try to find the truth! I believe
it will be very interesting - and even important. Without
knowing the truth about the past we might not have a future
we can trust!
ancient texts all over the world you can read stories about
giants. Most famous is of course the Bible, the Old Testament.
the giant that David
killed with his sling? Goliath of Garth was 12 feet tall -
one of the last giants,
"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 Anakim. The first giants? You find them at the very beginning
of the Bible, Genesis 6: "There were giants in the earth
in those days."
Many schoolars say that our civilisation
started in ancient Mesopotamia, with the Sumerian people.
Their learned everything from their gods, like writing and
maths. Like the god of Christianity they came from heaven,
but not a theological heaven. They came from the stars, the
Pleiads. And what more: These gods/kings were giants!
legends told about gold to be found some place far across
the sea. In 1519 the Spanish explorer Magellan was, as far
as our history-books tell, one of the first to go searching.
Before he sailed around the tip of South America he came across
people of large stature - and feet. He called the land Patagonia.
When the Spaniards, in their thirst after
gold, discovered Mexico they heard legends telling that the
pyramids they found were built by giants. The ancient city
of Teotihuacan was built by giants with the purpose to transform
men into gods.
In South America they also found gold, heaps
of gold. Luckily there is today a private gold-museum where
invited guests can awe at the golden-clad giant inca-king,
the mummified head about twice as large as a normal head and
his golden tunic made of spun gold over eight feet tall. Stories
about other giants are also preserved, like the one about
the brutal giants that came ashore from the sea. For a long
period of time they terrorised the local people with cruelty
It was not only the Spaniards that sailed across the sea in
search of wealth. The Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen discovered
an island far out in the Pacific Ocean one eastern day in
1772, and was surprised to see giant statues of stone. And
living giants that were so tall that the seamen could walk
upright between their legs. There are lot of large, ancient
statues made of stones on the tiny islands in the ocean that
covers one third of our planet, and even more legends about
giants! Myself, I was present when two archaeologists were
about to open the grave of an ancient giant in Tuvalu, but
were stopped because the islanders thought it was to dangerous
to disturb the spirit!
The first European settlers that came to North-America found
hardship, Indians - and artificial mounds. To make way for
roads and buildings quite a number of the mounds were dug
and levelled - and the workers were surprised to find tombs
with human bones that were very large. Skulls from the mounds
had cavities large enough to admit the head of an ordinary
man! Even if the settlers now and then encountered live Indians
that were extremely tall, the strange items found close to
the remains made them conclude that the bones could not have
belonged to Indians - it must have been a race of giants in
America in ancient days!
over the world
is said to be remains after giants have been found all over
the world. Of course there will always be some "funny"
stories backed up by fake pictures, but when the sensational
stuff is thrown out there is still more than enough to wonder
if what we as young believed were fairytales have a root in
reality. Might be the trolls once lived inside the mountains?
Might be Goliath of the Bible really was 12 feet tall?
had six fingers and toes, and this phenomena you can find
in many legends and stories of giants. Plus on ancient statues
all over the world. Many footprints that are said to be after
giants have six toes. Yes, it is also said that the fossils
and bones of giants showed six fingers and/or toes. It might
perhaps be noted that some say that aliens from outer space
have six fingers, and that the Sumerian giants gods/kings
from the stars also often is pictured with six fingers (to
read my webpages about six fingers, click here)!
Give me proof!
You might say: Give me proof! Where are the bones that have
been found? Good question, and hopefully we will one day have
the answers! Many of the bones that are said to be found,
like hundred years ago, were already in bad shape - many of
them smouldered to dust when touched. Some bones were reburied,
some were stolen and some lost. But during the years it is
said that quite a number of bones have been take care of by
authorities and museums - and hidden out of sight. Out of
sight out of mind. And there are rumours that this is happening
even today! The authorities don't want stories that can shake
or change the history we know; it might have national and
international implications. But we don't like things like
that, do we?
So come on folks - send me facts, pictures and theories!
name is Terje "Terry" Dahl, and I am a Norwegian
citizen. I have sailed single-handed to the Pacific and lived
several years on an atoll in the remote country of Tuvalu.
I have a keen interest in the old culture of the South Pacific,
and I also like to keep an open mind to the ancient mysteries
of our world. And luckily for me: These two topics very often
I am not making any money out of my research; I'm not selling
any books about giants. I am doing it because I feel it is
important; Without knowing our past it might be difficult
to say something about our future!
