Ok, this happened like over 100 years ago. But it still is pretty interesting if true. The human bones were said to be of people who were over 8 feet tall.

Google it and giants have been reported to have been found worldwide. Maybe it's true. It wouldn't surprise me to know that an alien race once lived on Earth.

Why would it have been alien? Did you know the first humans were really tall and strong as a bear? Evolution took place and it made most humans weak and short. These giants were probably human and because they kept to themselves. They were able to remain tall and strong. They were like the Yaqui. But the Yaqui still survive, I wonder why this group did not? Actually, I had already answered that question....

Humans started out very small and became larger, not visa versa.

Not if we evolved from apes.

Has no one taken Anthropology?

We descended from an ancient ape like creature, not large modern day apes. The "missing link" is the early hominid type creature that is linked to other early primates and early hominids.

Those early hominids from which modern humans did descend, were very small.

As early as two thousand years ago in the day of Jesus, the average male height was 5'1". Jesus, by the way, was described as being short which means he was under 4'11". Over one hundred thousand years ago, human type creatures were much smaller.

Paleontologists have found that there have indeed been giants and dwarfs in human evolution. Just like there have been giant and small forms of animals in prehistory, there have also been hobbits and giants. Prof. Lee Berger holds the giant femur of a Heidelberg man from Africa who was between 7 and 8 feet tall. [url]http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/content/interviews/interview/833/[/url] Our Story: Human Ancestor Fossils - The Naked Scientists November 2007. He says they commonly exceeded 7 feet tall 300,000 years ago and hunted giant animals. Doctors Von Koenigswald and Weidenreich also found jaw and teeth fragments in Java and China in the 1940's which suggested Apes and men who were as tall as 7 to 10 feet high. Meganthropus was the giant Java man whose jaw fragment was found in Sangiran (Sangiran # 6 fragment), and is 50% wider, taller, and longer than a normal human jaw--giving some estimates of 8 feet stature. The Ape Gigantopithecus was estimated at around 10 feet tall and had teeth and jaws twice the size of a Gorilla. Anthropologists are undecided if it was bipedal, but the late Dr. Grover Krantz, of University of Washington State, was convinced Gigantopithecus walked on 2 legs because the jaw configuartion allowed for the windpipe, suggesting a lateral cradle for the head, thus an erect posture. The bones of several human giants were unearthed in Montpellier and Castelnau, France between 1890 and 1895. These dated to before the Bronze age, and the height of these people was estimated from bone fragments at between 3 and 3,5 meters which is 10 to 11.5 feet. Ref: de Lapouge, G. (1890). "Le Gėant Fossile de Castelnau". La Nature 888: 11–12. Retrieved 27 December 2010. "Le sujet aurait une taille probable de 3m, 50 [11 ft 5.8 in].". A photo of the bones of Castelnau compared with normal humerus in the middle: [url]http://rephaim23.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/castelnau.jpg[/url] (Giant's humerus on the far left). Then, in 2004 was discovered the bones of up to 9 people on the Indonesian Island of Flores. These people were only 1 meter tall, or just over 3 feet 3 inches tall, and lived only 12,000 years ago and perhaps even as recent as the last several centuries.

Yes, there have been races of dwarfs 3 feet tall, and races of giants from 7 to 10 feet tall.

First, I don't read anything where someone doesn't know how to use paragraphs.

Second, from what little I could read it's all hoco pocos science.

Third, I put this right up there with Creationism.
