Who was The Giant of Castelnau ??

Postby arachnid 244 8 ft. » 13 Feb 2011, 10:53

He was born in France and his lifespan is unknown . He was said to be 350 cm tall or 11'6'' . Height estimate based on bone fragments found at the Neolithic cemetery of Castelnau-le-Lez, excavated in 1890 by Georges Vacher de Lapouge and published in the journal La Nature, Vol. 18, 1890.

Georges Vacher de Lapouge (12 December 1854, Neuville-de-Poitou - 20 February 1936) was a French anthropologist and a theoretician of eugenics and racialism.

La Nature (Nature) was a French language scientific journal aimed at the popularization of science founded in 1873 by French scientist and adventurer Gaston Tissandier. The magazine also received an enormous amount of time, effort and contributions from his brother, Albert Tissandier.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQ_saShs ... re=related Here's a documentary about Giants : Mystery and the Myth .

Do people over 12 feet excist ? Can the unknown be known and true ? Is this true ??
There are many , many skeletons found , that are over 11 or 12 feet tall .
And the most important , who was the Giant Of Castelnau ??

In september 27 1989 , aliens landed in Russia . The people claimed that they were over 9 feet tall . The people were scared and frightend of this . There are many , many witnesses .
Here's a video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6V20-LSgVN0

I don't belive in aliens , but this , this is something !

Image Here are some fossils of The Giant Of Castelnau .
Mr. M. G. de Lapouge had several problems that he needed to try to solve simultaneously back in 1890. Number one, he was a prominent scientist of his time, with a good reputation so why should he be publishing an article in a scientific journal concerning human giants–and of a “type”* evolutionists considered modern?

*Here at s8int.com, we believe that there is only and has only been one “type” of human being. Science has called Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon “prehistoric” and other humans modern.

Secondly, who were these giants who were modern in “type” but enormous when the two groups considered ancestral; Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal were reasonably of the same size of modern humans? Mr. de Lapouge had found evidence in a vast graveyard near Castelnau, France, in the form of fossil bones of a teenager at least seven foot tall and of another enormous man who was close to 12 feet tall.

Giants 3 Meters Tall Found in Georgia (Caucasus) & France


In 2008 the bones of an ancient giant man were unearthed near Borjomi, in Georgia (Caucasus) and reported in the news. This giant was estimated at 2,50 to 3 meters tall (About 9 to 10 feet) and had a skull about 3 times normal size.
Photo: Left, Borjomi giant- about 3 meter tall (Femur of normal size in middle) Skull of giant (right).

The finding of giants in the Caucasus mountains is nothing new. A Four-meter human skeleton was found by two amateur archaeologist in Georgia near the village of Udabno in the summer of the year 2000, and skeletons of giants were also found at a cave near Gora Kazbek, Georgia in the 1920's, not to mention the discoveries by Soviet scientists in the 1950's.

It's highly unlikely that a) human giants can reach ten feet tall and b) aliens landing anywhere on this planet.

look, other planetary systems do exist beyond ours, but they're so far away that it would take several lifetimes to travel here at the speed of light. how would they know we're here? was the journey worth it? :applaud: :logo:

as for human giants, the number of major problems suffered by humans once they pass 7'6 suggests anyone taller than 9 feet is going to have worse problems, so although I wouldn't rule out a nine footer (Wadlow was possibly one, since he had a slight kyphosis) a ten footer or taller is unrealistic.

I also don't belive in the paranormal ;) And i don't belive that there are creatures smarter that the creatures that live in our planet :lol: But who knows , maybe those giants did excist . Ofcourse you are correct that it would be very hard to live if your over 9 feet tall ;)

Giant Teenage Caveman Found

Posted by MSH under: Giants .

Before this gets mis-reported all over the web on Christian sites that promote phony Photo-shopped pictures as proof of giants in the ancient world, I thought I’d post it. Here is the link; the photo is below. And I’ll save you the conversion time. 193 cm = just under six feet, four inches, not ten or fifteen feet. Unusually tall for Chinese (these days) but right in the range I’ve suggested constituted a giant in the ancient world (anything over six feet tall upward into the seven foot range — sort of like today on the higher end).

Maybe you'd like to ask yourself a question: in any of these reports or pictures are there scientifically published papers on any of this? no? why don't the pictures show clear measureable artifacts against the claimed bones?

why might this be so, huh? ;)

An extract and photograph from the British Strand magazine of December 1895, reprinted in W. G. Wood-Martin's Book, Traces of the Elder Faiths of Ireland, mentions a fossilized giant that had been found during mining operatons in Count Antrim, Ireland:

[Note: Although preservation of the soft tissues in fossil form is rare, it is possible under certain conditions. Lime-rich water is known to have the effect of turning dead organisms – whether small plants or this human giant - into virtual stone statues. The process of carbonization also has this effect; coal mines are full of preserved imprints of soft leaves, plants, and animal organisms.] “This monstrous figure is reputed to have been dug up by a Mr. Dyer whilst prospecting for iron ore in County Antrim.

“The principal measurements are: entire length, 12 ft 2 in.; girth of chest, 6 ft 6 in.; and length of arms, 4 ft 6 in. There are six toes on the right foot. The gross weight is 2 tons 15 cwt.; so that it took half a dozen men and a powerful crane to place this article of lost property in position for the Strand magazine artist.

I'm not trying to rub it in, but the first video was so difficult to watch, it was like the credits at the end of an American soap - you'd have to pause it every 2 seconds to read the news paper articles. It would be interesting to look the articles up, though.

Later on they produce pics of a gentleman with more than six fingers on each hand and Chang Woo Gow - I wonder if they know what 'stick to the subject' is.

hang on a sec, if you've admitted to losing the argument, why proceed with more? ;)
