A mutant gene is thought to have been responsible for cases of human gigantism through the ages.Identified as the "gigantism gene" it was responsible for the enormous size of the 18th century "Irish Giant" who stood eight feet tall, it is believed that those inflicted inherited the gene from the same common ancestor up to 66 generations ago. A race of giants may have sprung from a mutant gene that first emerged around 1,500 years ago and causes uncontrolled body growth, scientists believe.

The "gigantism gene" was identified in the DNA of an 18th century man known as the "Irish Giant" who stood almost eight feet tall.

In the human experience, giants are literally the "elephants in the room". When our research first began on this paradigm, we had little knowledge of how extensive the evidence of their existence was. We now have a comprehensive database consisting of over 200 historical descriptions; over half from the United States and the U.K. history, alone. And, our unpublished files contain enough information to more than triple the current data we now have online. Were one to undertake a thorough study of giants and record all in detail, it would certainly be a life's work.

The lack of the presence of giants in orthodox history, academia, and anthropological studies is appalling in light of the true historical records from every part of the globe. Even more mysterious is the seemingly unanimous decisions by the keepers of the world's museums and archeological treasures to keep the physical evidence of giants hidden from public view. Only a smattering of the evidence is available in obscure locations. Thousands of skeletons and hundreds of historical reports are ignored. The accepted knowledge among the world's peoples is that giants are the creatures of myth and folklore, relegated to children's fairy tales and B grade horror movies, an it is almost a crime not to include a giant in any fantasy film or video game. The reality is that giants were present throughout our history from ancient biblical accounts and historical Roman military campaigns to the relatively modern genocide of the natives of North America. Giants appear in the legends of Australia, Bavaria, Belgium, Chad, Chile, China, England, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, India , Italy, Kazakhstan, Laos, Morocco, the Netherlands, Nova Scotia, Pakistan, Patagonia, the Philippines, Poland, Rwanda, Russia, Scotland, Sicily, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Terra del Fuego, Turkey, the United Sates, Wales, Zanzibar, and the ancient Incan, Toltec, and Nordic cultures, just to name a few. Giants are everywhere; in our religions, our history, our literature, and our folklore.

Giants: The fables of mythology contain accounts of horrible monsters, terrible in ferocity, whose mission was the destruction of the life of the in-dividuals unfortunate enough to come into their domains. The ogres known as the Cyclops, and the fierce anthropophages, called Lestrygons, of Sicily, who were neighbors of the Cyclops, are pictured in detail in the "Odyssey" of Homer. Nearly all the nations of the earth have their fairy tales or super-stitions of monstrous beings inhabiting some forest, mountain, or cave; and pages have been written in the heroic poems of all languages describing battles between these monsters and men with superhuman courage, in which the giant finally succumbs. The word giant is derived indirectly from the old English word "geant," which in its turn came from the French of the conquering Normans. It is Of Greek derivation, "yiya'--or the Latin, 'gigas." The Hebrew parallel is "nophel,' or plural, " nephilim."

Ancient Giants: We are told in the Bible" that the bedstead of Og, King of Basham, was 9 cubits long, which in English measure is 16 feet. Goliath of Gath, who was slain by David, stood 6 cubits and a span tall, which is about 11 feet. The body of Orestes, according to the Greeks, was 11 feet long. The mythical Titans, 45 in number, were a race of Giants who warred against the Gods, and their descendants were the Gigantes. The height attributed to these creatures was fabulous, and they were supposed to leap up mountains to scale the sky and to help them to wage their battles. Hercules, a man of incredible strength, but who is said to have been not over 7 feet high, was dispatched against the Gigantes. Pliny describes Gabbaras, who was brought to Rome by Claudius Caesar from Arabia and was between 9 and 10 feet in height, and adds that the re-mains of Posio and Secundilla, found in the reign of Augustus Caesar in the Sallustian Gardens, of which they were supposed to be the guardians, meas-ured 10 feet 3 inches each...

Millions of years ago, before what we call 'modern' man an ancient race with high intelligence, advanced technology and aerospace capabilities lived on earth. Great earth catastrophies wiped out much of this race , mutated some and drove many more underground. While waiting out the effects of what an ancient nucleur war created on the surface, man went back to a more natural or should I say 'simplistic' culture.  By the time they once again surfaced to  the earth or even came back from distance planets the Age of Man had changed.   Knowledge was lost and the old technology was gone. Man had to start over. ..as they had done in previous Ages. Today we still remain very ignorant  of our past.   Until 1847, almost nothing was known about fossil man. Science ignored the study of ancient man. It was only thorugh the bible and traditions that the western worlds had any reference to these wonderous races.   One such race was the race of Giants who were "in the earth in those days" of old.

H.P. Blavataksy, The Secret Doctrine, points out to us references in the Bible and in our tradition about the Rephaim (Giants,(the mighty ones),   the spectres (Phantoms), the Nephilim, or the fallen ones.. they are shown  "as if identical, though they are all men, since the Bible calls them the primitive and the mighty ones" -- e.g., Nimrod.  These names, which belong by right only to the four preceding races and the earliest beginning of the Fifth, allude very clearly to the first two Phantom (astral) races; to the fallen one -- the Third; and to the race of the Atlantean Giants -- the Fourth, after which "men began to decrease in stature." Although Science has come a long way since 1847, they, for their own reasons,  have not shared this information with the world populas. We have been kept in the dark . Not only kept in the dark, but conditioned and trained through the educational system, media and peers to scoff and shut out alternative ideas about the history of man...
