Rumors, Myths and Reality
"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." - King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
In The Footprint of Giants
The following is a collection of "footprints' Claimed to be the Footprints of Giants. Many of them are Geological Curiosities that just happen to be shaped like a foot, but some are at the very least very interesting and have been used as 'proof' that giants once walked the Earth. So as usual, we leave it up to the reader to look at the evidence and decide yourself. But don't ignore the fact that water and wind can makes some amazing carvings that are easily taken as something else

The exact source of this image is unknown at this time, but this is a perfect example of wind and/or water erosion creating a shape that 'looks like' something else, in this case loosely like a giant footprint.

The following "Giant Footprint" is also an erosion print. The main reason is the claim this it is in GRANITE. As a geologist and lapidary myself, I know how granite is formed deep in the earth's magma. It is not like mud or beach sand that leaves impressions that later harden to leave a "fossil" imprint. I have posted the original story below followed by A short section of debunk that says it about as good as I can. While seeking Giant prints is an interesting pursuit, we cannot just throw out all the science and geology we have learned over the millennia. Wind and water can do some amazing carving. Out here in the western USA the deserts are full of examples. So make up your own mind, but don't be blinded to a little reality of nature in your search.
|Giant Foot Print 200 Million Yrs Old
Mpaluz - South Africa

Michael Tellinger shows off what could be one of the best pieces of evidence that there were giants on Earth a long, long time ago. Geologists have marveled at this giant foot print in rough granite, about 4 feet long. Some still say that it is a natural erosion pattern.
Personally I find that suggestion highly improbable for various reasons that I will not go into here. Prof. Pieter Wagener from UPE, suggests that "there is a higher probability of little green men arriving from space and licking it out with their tongues, than being created by natural erosion".
It is located in South Africa, near the town of Mpaluzi, close to the Swaziland border. It is estimated to be between 200 million and 3 Billion years old because of our current understanding of the formation of granites in Earth's history. This dating immediately causes great debate and argument - so I urge you to keep your mind open and focused on the evidence.
This amazing footprint in granite was discovered in 1912 by a hunter called Stoffel Coetzee, while hunting in the remote area. At the time this was a deeply remote part of South Africa known as the Eastern Transvaal, teeming with wild life, including antelope and lions. It remains in the same condition as it was when first discovered and the possibility that this was a carved hoax is extremely low because of its remote location. Even today, it is difficult to find.
The real mystery is how this amazing phenomenon occurred - I have no idea - but here it is and we cannot wish it away. YES - It is granite - it is a well recognized geological part of South Africa and recorded on all geological maps - that is why this footprint is such an incredible mystery. It can be described as a "phenocrystic" granite, OR coarse porphyritic granite, that underwent several different stages of cooling. The result being an interesting mixture of large and small granules. This is why granite companies are keen to mine this area for granite because it will look really "pretty" when polished. In the official Geology Of South Africa, this outcrop is called Mpuluzi Batholith (Granite) and the official dating of this rock produced dates of around 3,1 billion years.
A real mystery that needs close scientific examination.

Giant Footprint, Mpuluzi, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa
this 4 foot long granite footprint is referred to as Goliath’s Footprint.
Mr Tellinger explains in the video “(a giant footprint) in rough granite that’s between 200 million and 3 billion years old that’s what geologists will tell you”
Mr Tellinger, perhaps you are not aware of the fact that the time difference between 200 million years and 3 billion years is around 2.8 billion years. Considering the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old this would mean that this granite was in the process of being formed for more than half the total age of the earth.
So what do geologists say is the real age of the granite? The Mpuluzi Batholith belongs to the 3.105 billion year old granodiorite-monzogranite-syenogranite GMS suite intruding paleoarchaean TTG (trondhjemite-totalite-granodiorite) plutons. The 3.105 billion year age has been established on numerous occusions by numerous geoscientists and is published in multiple peer reviewed earth science journals both in South Africa and internationaly. A quick internet search reveals a plethora of scientific papers on this much studied pluton. So I think we can safely attest to the fact that the Mpuluzi Batholith is NOT 200 million years old and certainly has not been in the process of being formed for over 2.8 billion years.
Let’s further evaluate whether or not it is possible for a “giant” or any other living being to leave imprints in soft (molten) granite. To evaluate this possibility we first need to understand what granite is and how it is formed.
Most introductory geology textbooks report that granite is the most abundant rock in the earth’s continental crust. At the surface granite is exposed in the cores of many mountain ranges, within large areas known as "batholiths," and in the core areas of continents known as "shields." The large mineral crystals in granite are evidence that it cooled slowly from molten rock material. That slow cooling (in the order of thousands of years) had to have occurred beneath Earth's surface. If they are today exposed at the surface the only way that could happen is if the granite rocks were uplifted and the overlying rocks were eroded.
So clearly granites formed deep within the earth’s crust (the geological term for this is “plutonic”) usually several kilometres below the earth’s surface. This magma typically has temperatures in excess of 1200 degrees centigrade.
So let’s ask the obvious question. How is it possible for a living being (giant or other) to make a footprint several kilometres below the earth’s surface into material that is over 1200 degrees centigrade? Any suggestions?

In the upper right hand corner of the photo I used to illustrate Garth Mitchell's article (only used the portion related to the geology not his personal views on the existence of giants) there is another odd shape. I find it interesting that no one has commented on it as it looks hexagon and symmetrical.
What it does show us, that unless it was Aliens or carved by that giant, that wind and water can make some very unusual shapes in rocks. One example of wind carving out pockets...

|Giant Footprint and Ancient Pyramid Temple
Foot Print of Lord Hanuman
Although Lepakshi is a small village in Andhra Pradesh – India, Lepakshi is very important historically and archaeologically. There is some thing mythical in the place when you connect facts to the legends:
There is a Giant footprint in Hindu temple – Sita Amman Kovil. In the shade of a mountain is Sita’s blue temple with shrines to Rama, Sita and Hanuman the monkey God. Beside the temple is a stream and a large rock with giant footprints on it – the footprints of Hanuman as he jumped to find Sita and give her Rama’s ring. There is similar giant footprints of Shri Ram and Sita at Sphatik Shila and in Chitrakoot.
The footprint always has a trickle of water coming into it from somewhere not known. Near by there is Veerabhadra temple with a pyramid tower and pillars with amazing carving of life-size images of dancers. Legend has it that the Naga (ancient Indian reptilian race) of the Nagalinga was carved out of a single stone by sculptors while they waited for their mother to prepare lunch. - SOURCE: Unexplained things are out there

Willet Fossil Human Footprint
The Willet fossil human footprint was discovered in the 1950’s by O.W. Willet. He removed the print from a limestone ledge along the banks of the Paluxy river at a location along the river where the current Dinosaur Valley State Park is located.
Mr. Willet’s family was in possession of the print for 60 years and sold the print to the Creation Evidence Museum in 2010. The Willet print is probably the most clear of all fossil human footprints that have been found.

|Gilgamesh Holding a Lion
Possible representation of EnkiduAdventures with Gilgamesh
Enkidu assists Gilgamesh in defeating and killing Humbaba, the guardian monster of the Cedar Forest. Enkidu selects a particularly tall tree to provide lumber for a new door for Enlil's temple in Uruk. Later, he assists Gilgamesh in slaying Gugalanna the Bull of Heaven, which the gods have sent to kill Gilgamesh as a reprisal for rejecting Ishtar's affections while enumerating the misfortunes that befell her former lovers. Ishtar demands that the pair pay for the bull's destruction. Shamash argues to the other gods to spare both of them, but he could save only Gilgamesh. Enkidu succumbs to a wasting illness. He represents the hero who wins fame but dies early. This moves Gilgamesh to quest for eternal life, and visit to Utnapishtim.
There is another non-canonical tablet in which Enkidu journeys into the underworld, but many scholars consider the tablet to be a sequel or add-on to the original epic as the work was revised several times. The section about the Flood is also considered to be addition. - Wikipedia
When a railway line was built in North Carolina (USA) unearthed the catacombs full of skeletons of giants. On the basis of measurements of bone it was found that the measured the giant from 2.5 to 3 meters.
The English magazine "Sirand" reported that Mr. Dyer, who was looking for iron ore in the vicinity of St. Patrick. in County Antrim in Ireland, superbly unearthed the mummified remains of giant dimensions: height 3.6 meters, the volume of the chest is 1.95 meters and weight of 350 kg. Giant has a foot 6 fingers! Mr Dyer presented his finding in Dublin, Liverpool, Manchester and London. A huge box with mummified giant is stored in the Society of Railways.
In California, we found the mummy of Indian growth trifling 2.7 meters! (9 feet). The event m.in newspaper wrote "The World," October 6, 1895.

Three huge bronze axes from the Minoan mansion at Nirou
Penetrating into the museum, a room bristles with the dark double axes, Minoan symbol of power and dominance.
Some experts have tried to see in the Minoans an essentially peace-loving culture, as their palace complexes were virtually undefended, with no gargantuan walls to protect the noble and royal inhabitants. Actually, evidence also suggests that the Minoans so dominated the seas of the Aegean that none of their vassals would dare to attack.
The huge metal double axes, mounted on long poles, and cases displaying exquisite bronze dagger blades look like the Minoans were more than capable of taking care of themselves in a fight. Visitors instinctively tread lightly past the display of the big double axes, which look as if they could slice down without warning - inhabitants of the ancient Aegean world may well have felt the same trepidation.

18 skeletons of giant people were unearthed close to the state of Wisconsin in the area of Lake Delavan.
According to media reports, the skeletons were found by Peterson brothers on a farm Lake Lawn Farm. For the first researchers of this striking findings it was primarily that the skeletons were much larger than human. The height of these creatures have to reach 2.3 to 3 meters. What's more skeletons had six fingers and toes, and their skulls were slightly elongated. Skeletons reportedly may be in the Smithsonian Institute.
A California writer is offering $500 for a photograph of a 1911 dig of an ancient burial mound that uncovered large skeletons on what is now Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan. Large skeletons have been uncovered in other parts of the country and world, such as this photograph of self-described archaeologist Ralph Glidden, who--before it was outlawed--dug up such sites on Santa Catalina Island off the California coast.

DELAVAN--It's a 103-year-old Walworth County mystery that's puzzled area historians, and if you're the one holding the photographic clue you could be $500 richer, courtesy of a California researcher.
L.A. Marzulli is a lecturer, researcher, filmmaker and author living in Malibu. The topics of his books range from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to the Shroud of Turin. Four of his novels and one non-fiction book—he's currently writing the second—deal with the Nephilim, a race of giants mentioned in the Bible, described as the offspring of humans and angels.
Nephilim have been noted by writers like Jewish historian Flavius Josephus as far back as 2,000 years ago. And very large skulls and skeletal remains have been found in archeological digs in England, Peru and the United States—including, as it turns out, Delavan.
Late last month, Marzulli visited Wisconsin, researching a dig by two brothers named Phillips who, in March of 1911, uncovered oversized skeletons on their property, located on what is now Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan. Marzulli visited the Delavan Historical Society, the Walworth County Historical Society in Elkhorn and the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison.
“I was hoping to hit that pay dirt,” Marzulli said in a telephone interview from California.
He found newspaper articles about the dig—including one from the New York Times.
There were even letters from Ernest Field Phillips, written on Lake Lawn Hotel stationary, to Charles Brown, an archeologist from the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison, about how he and his brother, Chester W. Phillips, decided to investigate one of a number of ancient burial mounds on their property.
”As we were looking over and mapping out the mounds at Lake Lawn Park, we took it into our heads to search one to satisfy ourselves and others what was really in them and their makeup,” Ernest Phillips wrote.
Phillips described digging down several feet to discover a cobblestone pit that contained fourteen skeletons, their forms well preserved under a coating of dirt and hard clay. The skeletons, he wrote, revealed “big, powerful men.”
Phillips included sketches of the excavated site in his letter and promised to take photographs and send them to Brown.
Marzulli found no trace of the photos, but he's offering $500 to anyone who can.
The Delavan skeletons' purported sizes, ranging from seven to nine feet tall, with abnormally large skulls, are consistent with other skeletal remains which Marzulli said fit the Nephilim profile.
He doesn't doubt Nephilim lived in North America

A massive heap of giant mound builder skeletons were found in what we call Pittsburgh, today, and Not just one or two, but 49 giant (Nephilim?) skeletons! This was published in a newspaper called The Pittsburgh Press on September 13, 1932. This detailed article with pictures including that of a giant skull, measurement of two giant skeletons, and other interesting information proves that Mound Builders were giants who stood over 7 feet tall.

The unidentified creature has a strangely shaped skull nearly as large as its 20-inch-tall body
This one is an actual real skeleton found in the Peru forest by Renato Davila Riquelme who works at Privado Ritos Andinos museum, in Peru. You can still find this skeleton on display there today. The body measured 20 inches, while the head is also about 20 inches. That’s a big head. Scientists around the world have done DNA tests on the skeleton with no firm results if whether this is a human or a mysterious being? Maybe an alien. The eye sockets are very large also. Giant?, Alien?, some other creature? We will never know for sure. - SOURCE - Daily Mail
Is this an alien skull? Mystery of giant-headed mummy found in Peru
A mummified elongated skull found in Peru could finally prove the existence of aliens. The strangely shaped head - almost as big as its 50cm (20in) body - has baffled anthropologists. It was one of two sets of remains found in the city of Andahuaylillas in the southern province of Quispicanchi. The skeletal sets were discovered by Renato Davila Riquelme, who works for the Privado Ritos Andinos museum in Cusco in south-eastern Peru. He said that that the eye cavities are far larger than normally seen in humans. There is a soft spot in the skull - called an open fontanelle - which is a characteristic of children in their first year of life, yet the skull also has two large molars, only found in much older humans.
Spanish and Russian scientists who have examined the remains claim they are actually those of an alien
Davila Riquelme said three anthropologists, from Spain and Russia, arrived at the museum last week to investigate the findings and agreed it was ‘not a human being’ and would conduct further studies. He added: ‘Although the assessment was superficial, it is obvious that its features do not correspond to any ethnic group in the world.’ The remains of an eyeball in the right socket will help determine its genetic DNA - and clear up the controversy if it is human or not. The second mummy is incomplete and is only 30cm (12in). It lacks a face and seems to be wrapped in a layer as a placenta, fetal position. The remains bear a striking resemblance to the triangular crystal skull in the 2008 Indiana Jones film Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - which turned out to be of alien origin and have supernatural powers.
Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull featured a conical alien skull similar to the one found in Peru
