Many scientists who support the theory of Darwinism deny the existence of giants . In his opinion, Homo sapiens and its predecessors could not measure more than 3 meters. In fact, it is very difficult to believe that people could reach 33 – 3.9 meters or even more.

Many theorists conclude that giants, Nephilim, Atlanteans, colossi lived on earth. And there is a lot of evidence. In addition to the skeletons themselves, which were actively found until the middle of the 19th century, and then abruptly stopped, there are a whole series of other finds.

For example, giant weapons. Who can fight with a 3 meter sword or an ax weighing more than 50 kilos? And how about a shield with a height of more than 2.1 meters? Of course, scientists have an explanation that is difficult to argue with. These are ritual specimens that have never been used in battle.

As for the huge shield, it was attached to the tower and was not part of the equipment either. But why, when scientific specialists cannot explain something, for example, a building, they call it a temple or observatory, and if it is an artifact, then it must be ritual by definition.

All this cannot be seen as an attempt to reach the truth, but as a convenient tool. As for the giants themselves, there are numerous references to them, both in local folklore and in works of art. For example, in Washington, DC, there is an engraving titled “The Funeral of Prince Francesco de’ Medici” in the houses of the National Gallery of Art. It represents a remarkable detail that no one paid attention to for a long time.

The columns in the room where the event takes place are decorated with giant skeletons. Meticulous researchers have tried to discover the original source to see if it was a fantasy of the author or if it represented a real-life painting. For some researchers, the town was at war with the giants and each skeleton of a giant fallen in battle was exhibited as a trophy. Sometimes it happened outdoors and other times inside buildings. In this case, the columns of the Basilica of San Lorenzo are decorated with trophy skeletons.

Until the end of the 18th century, this practice was welcomed and encouraged, but in 1778 the Church commemorated this date with the victory of the people over the giants and the death of the last of their kind. From that moment on, it was decided to burn their bones; there were even stables who removed skeletons from cathedrals, temples, squares, knights’ houses and guilds. Most of the information about it is hidden in the Vatican, but oral accounts cannot be hidden behind seven locks.

In the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Romania, Italy, Spain, France and Serbia there are many oral stories that scientists consider fairy tales. In addition, few researchers pay attention to the manuscripts of monks who lived in the Middle Ages.

This archival information has a special value, since it is the record of eyewitnesses of those events. And when you read those records, you get the impression that the history books write something completely different.

Yes, there were people like the giants, but history was once again “castrated”, data that somehow outraged minds was eliminated, so to speak. So it’s all there, somewhere, lying to itself, very quietly (in warehouses) away from people’s prying eyes.
