Your Daily Giant 4/4/2013
Today's Daily Giant comes from the Bryan Times April 13, 1899 page 2. Reported is the remarkable discovery made by teamster Harry Berry in Browntown, West Virginia. I hope this teamster didn't end up like Jimmy Hoffa after he reported his find. A flood had exposed the enormous skeleton which is said to have measured 14 feet long. A pipe and a tomahawk were found also and the skull, jaws and teeth were well preserved. While 14 feet may stretch the imagination, this account joins many others that describe over 10 foot skeletal remains being unearthed. Like the peer reviewed case of the giant of Castelnau, estimated to have been 11 foot 6 inches tall. Not so very long ago, the Americas were home to giant mammals: monstrous-sized beavers weighing up to 600 pounds, ground sloths weighing over 4,000 pounds, the well-known woolly mammoths and saber-tooth cats, and many more. The reality is there were all kinds of life forms of gigantic size which existed in the past. This may have been due to different atmospheric or other conditions that existed on the earth at that time. For some reason humans are not included as being of a much larger stature. Instead the prevailing theories are transfixed on the notion that our ancestors were dirty little monkey men that liked hanging out in caves. The evidence clearly suggests a possibly different reality.
