Chances are, at some point in your life, you’ve read a fairy tale or fantasy novel that features giants—giant people, that is—whether it be the Titans of Greek mythology or children’s book “The BFG.”
Every different myth and legend depicts giants in a different way, ranging from human-like in appearance to part monster or even part god. Some have one eye or green skin, and others speak their own language entirely and live up in the mountains.
As hard as it is to imagine, though, there’s plenty of evidence scattered throughout history that proves that these wildly intriguing tales may not be as far off from the truth as we’d believe!
Looking back at literature from centuries past, writings such as the Bible and the Dead Sea scrolls imply that giants—or at the very least giant-like humans—lived “both before and alongside” man as we know him today, suggesting that humans may not be the only homo sapiens to have walked the earth over the millennia!
This intriguing video details the different hints and clues you can find throughout history alluding to giants, which have never been definitively disproven by science.
It may very well be nothing more than humans who sit on the extreme end of the height scale from which the legends were born. After all, Goliath from the story “David and Goliath” was believed to be a giant, but stood at just 9 feet, 9 inches; that’s less than a foot taller than the iconic Robert Madlow.
At the very least, though, this is some food for thought; what if there really were giant roaming among us?
