Stories and tales about gigantic beings inhabiting the Earth occur in almost all ancient cultures and several continue to exist today. Giant human-shaped footprints have been discovered around the world and they are often thought to be millions, if not billions, of years old.
For example, in August 2016, a giant human-shaped footprint was discovered by a group of photographers in Pingyan village in Guizhou, China. By the following month numerous websites had published similar stories that contributed to the believability of the account of the giant footprint. The footprint was said to be 57 cm long, 20 cm wide, and 3 cm deep. Found fossilized in rock, it was dated back to the prehistoric era. This discovery was monumental and controversial and it left many historians and scientists alike questioning what we know of human history and evolution.
Are these giant footprints modern hoaxes? Could they have come from giant humans roaming the earth in the distant past? Or maybe there’s another explanation. There’s a lot of controversy surrounding these discoveries, but no certainty yet. What do you think?
