Giants - Rock art in Arizona

The Relic of Bir Hooker & The Giants of the Past - Part 2

(Read the article on one page)

Part 1 of the relic of Bir Hooker outlined the true account of Swiss club owner Gregor Spörri and his encounter with an elderly farmer in Egypt, Nagib, a descendant of an ancient family of grave robbers. Nagib showed Spörri a relic that had passed down through his family – a wooden box containing a mummified finger that measured 35 centimetres in length, along with documents proving its authenticity, including x-rays carried out on the artefact in the 1960s.

Nagib refused to tell Spörri where the finger was found but made allusions to a hidden room in the basementof the Great Pyramid where huge, empty graves are located. Nagib made it clear that the relic was not for sale as it was too important for Nagib's family. Before he returned to his hotel, Spörri took a number of photos where he put a banknote next to the finger in order to indicate the size.

On the way back to Cairo, Spörri realized that what he had seen was very special.

In the years following his viewing of the giant mummified finger, Spörri did not speak much about what he had seen. The times when he did speak about it showed him that scientists were not interested in it, simply because it did not fit in with their existing theories. So instead Spörri embarked on intensive research into the possibility of the existence of giants in ancient times. He studied sacred texts like the Bible (the Gospel of Judas), the Torah (Talmud), the Koran, and many other writings containing tales and mythologies. He was surprised to discover that there are in fact frequent references to giants.

The Bible speaks about Nephilim (the Hebrew word for giant but also for fallen), a race of giants created by the mixing of the sons of Gods and the daughters of men. Researchers and historians have presented different theories to explain what these Nephilim really were, ranging from fallen angels (unfaithful to their origins), the descendants of Seth (the third son of Adam and Eve), or a product of extraterrestrials interbreeding with humans.

Genesis 6:4

In those days - and also afterwards - there lived giants on the earth, because the sons of God had intercourse with the daughters of men and they bore sons to their community. They were the famous tyrants of old time.

Even after the flood you can find reports of giants, this could be because the Nephilim were spiritual beings and therefore were not bothered by the flood, unlike their earthly offspring. The Israelites came across these giants when they explored their promised land.

Numbers 13:33

We also saw the giants there, Anakim, which come of the giants, and we were like grasshoppers in our own eyes and in their eyes.

In the writings of Enoch and Moses we can also read about giants.

In 79 AD. Flavius ​​Josephus mention giants in his writings about the Jewish war:

There were giants. Much larger and shaped differently than normal people. Terrible to see. Anyone who has not seen it with his or her own eyes can not believe they were so big.

PharaohThrough the ages, writings in which giants play a role have resurfaced time and again:

  • Pausanias, an ancient historian wrote in 200 AD about 5 metre tall, humanoid skeletons found in modern Syria;
  • The Greek mythology known as the Titans;
  • Germanic mythology has numerous giants, living in Riesenheim;
  • Don Antonio de Mendoza discovered giant skeletons in Peru;
  • The Dutch navigator Willem Cornelisz Schouten claims he had seen skeletons of at least 3.5 meters;
  • Giants are depicted on rock drawings in Ohio;
  • There was a huge skeleton found in Minnesota in 1968. Radiocarbon dating could not continue because the skeleton vanished during its transportation;
  • The Annunaki are a race referred to in the Sumerian texts that apparently landed on earth in the area between the Euphrates and the Tigris. They passed their knowledge to the Sumerians, an early civilization with very advanced culture. The Sumerians depicted humaoids of at least 3 times as large as the average person in their art and carvings.
  • Statues in Egypt depict ‘gods’ as tall beings. Historians will tell you that this is to indicate that they were important, but it is also possible that they were representing their actual height. Often there is a man of normal height to create a context.
  • A giant footprint embedded in granite that is around 200 million years old has been found in South Africa, near the town of Mpaluzi.

There have also been many more well-documented giant skeletons found in the US in late 1800's-1940's, which were quickly whisked away, (usually by the Smithsonian) never to be seen again.

Then how do you know they existed?

Exactly. i would also want to see documented replies from the experts who looked at the photos and the xrays, etc. I don't disbelieve, but when you publish articles like this without using rigorous standards of proof, you play right into the hands of skeptics.

There have been publications in the American History magazine just in the last three years or so that tell about some of these skeletons. In the 20s I think it was, when the US was building highways across the northern states through farming lands, the road projects ended up plowing through a lot of ancient burial mounds. Locals dug into the mounds and found skeletons that were often between 8-10 feet tall. In some cases there are photos of the burial mounds where these people were buried standing up.

In this case, the US wasn't even interested in the skeletons at the time, to preserve national history, but there are other cases of such finds of giant skeletons in the US. Indian legends too, have told of giants in the US.

The skeletons are found in different places - like the Giant Irish bones were in Lundy Island for ages and now transferred to Bristol Museum. You could go and see for yourself.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
