“One of the most popular books in the world, the Bible, tells us that when the Gods were on Earth, they were giants. . . . This, when you bring up in conversation, normally brings up, you know, laughter and people giggling and thinking you’re joking, and yet, the Bible is full of references of giants in our history.”
– Michael Tellinger (source)
Tellinger is referring to the Nephilim, as referenced in Numbers 13:33 of the Bible: “We saw the Nephilim there (the defendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”
Tellinger is an author, scientist, and explorer who has become a real-world Indiana Jones, making several groundbreaking discoveries about advanced ancient civilizations who seem to have vanished off the face of the Earth. His research is focused in South Africa, and his efforts have produced some very intriguing evidence that might force you to rethink our origins and what we are told in our history books.
Admittedly, stories in the Bible about giants cannot stand as evidence on their own, but it is interesting that these stories appear in the writings of many difficult cultures over the course of human history. Even Abraham Lincoln apparently believed in them, if this statement, made at Niagara Falls in 1848 is any indication: “The eyes of that species of extinct Giant, whose bones fill the Mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara as ours do now.”
Numerous examples of physical evidence exist to support the hypothesis that giants once roamed the Earth. One such example is part of an upper leg bone with a hip joint of a giant that would have stood about 12 feet, or 3.5 metres tall. This bone has been in the vaults of the medical school at WITS University, Johannesburg, since the early 1960s, when it was found by miners in northern Namibia. It is one of the most precious and rare specimens available today that clearly indicate the existence of giants in Southern Africa more than 40,000 years ago.
Here is a video of Professor Francis Thackeray, Director of the Institute for Human Evolution at The University of The Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, showing Tellinger the actual bone.
A similar discovery was made in 1883, when the Smithsonian (United States government/military led organization) dispatched a team of archaeologists to the South Charleston Mound. The report indicates that the team uncovered numerous giant skeletons ranging from 7 to 9 feet tall. They were decorated with heavy copper bracelets and other religious/cultural items. The report also mentioned that some of them had a skull that was of “the compressed or flat-head type.” This would resemble similar skeletal characteristics to those found in South America and Egypt.
Going back further still, in 1774 settlers found what they called “The Giant Town,” which housed several gigantic skeletons, one being an eight foot tall male.
“In addition to the human skeletons found in NY State, there is also the famous case of ‘The Cardiff Giant,’ a white alabaster-like statue of an 11-foot man which showed an exposed penis and hieroglyphic inscriptions. This statue caused a worldwide sensation and was exhibited in New York City to thousands of paying customers before it was declared a fake by the NY newspapers, despite the fact that scholars from Harvard and elsewhere insisted that the statue was genuine.”

The list goes on and on, and for more examples I suggest you start with an article written by Richard Dewhurst. It’s where I found the few examples I listed above. Richard J. Dewhurst is the Emmy Award–winning writer of the HBO feature documentary Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam. A graduate of NYU with degrees in journalism, film, and television, he has written and edited for the History Channel, the Arts & Entertainment Channel, PBS, Fox Television and Fox Films, ABC News, TNT, Paramount Pictures, and the Miami Herald. He himself, like Michael Tellinger from the video above, is extremely well researched.
The presence of various giant structures on earth also lend credibility to this theory. In the valley of Khafre, Egypt, for example, lies a temple whose core structure was built entirely of gigantic limestone blocks, each measuring approximately 18 feet long by 10 feet tall and 8 feet high. Some were as large as 30 feet long by 12 feet wide and 10 feet high. With each stone exceeding 200 tons in weight, in a monument that is made up of hundreds of blocks, it’s truly mind altering to imagine how these buildings were achieved, especially when you think about the precise placement and mathematical precision of each piece.
Not only did these enormous blocks need to be moved, they had to be lifted more than 40 feet. Think about that for a second. In his book Fingerprints of the Gods: The Evidence of Earth’s Lost Civilization, Graham Hancock explains just how much work would have to go into moving these blocks with our own advanced technology:
At present there are only two land-based cranes in the world that could lift weights of this magnitude. At the very frontiers of construction technology, these are both vast, industrialized machines, with booms reaching more than 220 feet into the air, which require on-board counterweights of 160 tons to prevent them from tipping over. The preparation-time for a single lift is around six weeks and calls for the skills of specialized teams of up to 20 men.13 In other words, modern builders with all the advantages of high-tech engineering at their disposal, can barely hoist weights of 200 tons.
