Giants are found in the myths and legends of many different cultures.
Their appearance rarely differs much from an ordinary human.
For example, the Cyclops in the Odyssey,
库克罗普斯 外表与人类一致 除了体型庞大
written by Homer, besides being a giant was generally human looking,
except for that one big eye in the center of his forehead.
The Bible mentions in passing a divine origin for ancient Giants
and in Scandinavian legends, Giants actually confront the Gods.
At that time, there were Giants on the Earth,
since the sons of God began to enter the daughters of men
and began to give birth to them.
They are strong, anciently glorious people.
Why did people on different continents and in such dispersed civilizations
have such similar stories about Giants?
Is it possible that these are remnants of memories of certain ancient civilizations?
中世纪 一位有着奇妙名字的丹麦史学家 萨克索
A medieval Danish historian, wonderfully named Saxo Grammaticus
assumed that the Giants really existed,
else how to explain the giant-sized buildings and structures of antiquity.
Many written sources of those years do speak of such things.
For example, in the old English poem “Seafarer”,
a tale is told of enormous stone walls supposedly built by giants.
There is also mention of giant beings in a number of historical documents.
Herodotus writes of the Spartans acquiring the bones of the warrior arrestees
to help with a military campaign.
The skeleton is noted to have had a height of 7 cubits,
换算成现代单位 有11.5英尺 也就是3.5米
that’s 11.5 feet or 3.5 meters in modern terms.
The ancient Greek scholar Pausanias
described how a skeleton of a man of about 18 feet
or five and a half metres tall
was found on the buttom of the river.
Josephus Flavius, a Roman historian, transcribed the testimonies of eyewitnesses
who saw live gaints themselves.
These observers reported that the gaints faces were different from ordinary human faces,
and that the towering creatures possessed thundering voices.
In the era of early Christianity,
priests believe that Adam’s height was 13 feet, about 4 meters,
夏娃稍微矮些 大约10英尺高 那也有3米
and that Eva was just a bit shorter at about 10 feet tall or 3 meters.
Records of these writting are available in the archives of the Vatican.
A number of 13 foot tall skeleton,
that’s 4 meters for you, metric aficionados
were excavated in the Caucasus Mountains during the 20th century.
The age of these gaint skeletons dates from somewhere between
tens and even hundreds of thousands of years ago.
The presence of such a large number of skeletal
remains allowed scientists to assume
that the gaints moved here in search of salvation
after some global catastrophe.
在这里 他们找到了最后的容身之地 得以落脚
Here they found their final shelter and resting place.
In one very old book entitled “History and Antiquity”,
now stored at the Oxford University library,
there is an account of the discovery in the Middle Ages
of a gaint skeleton in Cumberland.
The gaint is buried in the ground at the depth of 4 yards,
and is in full military garb.
His sword and battle axe are resting next to him.
The length of the skeleton is four and a half yards,
and the teeth of the big man are measured at six and a half inches long,
and two broad.
Adding to the evidence verifyingthe existence of giants
are numerous, gigantic, fossilized footprints.
例如 一个80cm长的人类足印 2.5英尺
For example, an imprint of a human foot 80cm or two and a half feet in length,
has been unearthed in Tanzania.
Similar footprints of a slightly smaller size
about 50 cm or one and a half feet,
were found in the Nevada desert
left approximately 250 millions of years ago.
A series of handprints was found next to traces of
dinosaurs near a village in Turkmenistan.
The height of the gaints that left them is estimated at about 5 meters,
almost sixteen and a half feet
and lived 150 million years ago.
A human tooth five times larger than an ordinary man’s tooth
was found in Hong Kong in 1935.
一具60cm (2英尺) 带着两排牙齿的人类颅骨
A 60 cm or two-foot high human skull with two rows of teeth
was found in Alaska in 1950.
And a fifty-foot long petrified human skeleton
that’s 15 meters folks, was found in Mongolia in 1999.
These sheer plethora of evidence allows us to state
unequivocally that Giants did indeed once exist.
But whether they were a single people
who settled all over the earth
or belong to different races,
this is a question which scientists have yet to unambiguously answer.
But if Gaints really existed and not only in myth and legend,
then it stands to reason that other traces of their lives should also exist.
For example, architectural structures and other such objects.
In the opinion of a number of scientists,
the numerous megalithic objects that have been discovered all over the earth,
serve as proof of the prior existence of Gaints.
Even in our time, with modern technology,
it is extremely difficult to build such monumental objects.
And tens or even hundreds of thousands of years ago,
without some kind of mechanical lifting mechanisms,
it seems that it would have been virtually impossible,
and yet, they exist.
This is the famous Baalbek terrace
located in Lebanon near Beirut.
Three huge stone slabs, each weigh about 800 tons,
are embedded in its base.
The plates are identical and fit together so seamlessly
that one can not even insert the blade of a knife between them.
Researchers calculated that to install just one such stone block
21 meters wide and 54 meters long
would require the simultaneous effort of at least 35,000 people.
是谁 怎样做的 为什么要这么做？
Who, how and why did they do it？
Handwritten Arabic treaties say that
the structure was built as a temple of Jupiter,
and that the gaint beings built it
on the orders of King Nimrod, just after the flood.
The ancient city of Teotihuacán, the city of Gods,
is located 31 miles from Mexico City,
and is an entire complex of huge stone blocks.
According to the most common historical version of events,
the city was built by Gaints to turn people into Gods.
Its layout resembles a module of the solar system,
from the central temple which embodies the Sun,
at appropriate distances are the planet temples, even included Pluto,
which modern astronomers only discovered in 1930.
This means that the inhabitants of this site somehow
already knew a great deal astronomy even at that ancient time.
Regarding objects that Gaints might have built,
scholars also include the Egyptian Sphinx,
the English Stonehenge, these stone figures of Easter Island
and the Tibetan City of the Gods.
Not only are these structures themselves amazing,
but also their geometrical connection with each other.
For example, a line drawn from the Tibetan City of Gods
to the Egyptian Sphinx, if continued,
leads directly to Easter Island.
And another line, from the City of Gods,
through the Mexican pyramidsalso goes to Easter Island.
These two lines delineate 1/4 of the earth surface,
and the line drawn fromthe City of the Gods to Stonehenge
divides this quarter exactly in half.
And what about modern people who are Gaints？
One view is that the life and then disappearance
of these Gaints is related to some cosmic cataclysm.
There’s evidence that hundreds of millions of years ago,
a huge asteroid approached our planet,
and the dimension of this asteroid
exceeded those of our present-day moon.
It’s postulated that it became a satellite of the Earth,
and because of this, the gravity in our planetwas significantly weakened.
就是在那时 巨人出现了 并且繁衍出相当先进的文明
It was then that the Gaints appeared and developed a fairly advanced civilization.
Hundreds of thousands or even millions of years later,
this satellite descended from its orbit and disintegrated.
Its debris falling to the earth.
Survivors of the disaster through mutationand adaptation decreased in size,
as the gravity on the planet hadsuddenly increased dramatically.
In addition, the ozone layer of the atmosphere decreased seven fold,
increasing the negative impact of solar radiation.
Now, a smaller body meant less total surface area
and thus a lesser exposureto the sun’s radiative effects.
Some researchers have ascertained thatbefore the catastrophe,
the Earth’s atmosphere containedone-and-a-half times as much oxygen as now.
Large animals thrive with more oxygen
and this helps explain the fossil record of
all the giant animals and plantscharacteristic of that time,
which obviously would also bebeneficial to giant humanoids.
After the disaster, the size of the Giants gradually decreased.
According to some well-known anthropologists,
such as Christopher Baume and Franz Weinreich,
before the explosion and fall of the satellite asteroid,
the Asuras, inhabitants ofthe legendary continent of Lemuria
reached a height of 50 meters or 165 feet.
As result of the catastrophe, the continent divided.
And the once united race of Giantswere now isolated from each other.
These successors of the acerous were 18 meters tall.
That’s about 60 feet,
而那些继承者们 只有6米高 也就是20英尺左右
and their successors 6 meters or about 20 feet tall.
As a result of these newenvironmental conditions in the world,
the Giants in many areas died out.
But in some areas, they managed to survive,
at least until the 16th century.
Of course, such a theory runs counter tothe teachings of Darwin,
but it is this theory that most possiblyexplains the existence of the Giants.
