Torah confirmed

Deuteronomy 3:11:
"For only Og king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaim Behold, his bedstead was an iron bedstead; it is in Rabbah of the sons of Ammon. Its length was nine cubits and its width four cubits by ordinary cubit."

In fact, according to Chinese records Confucius was a 9 ft tall giant!

Divining rods? The History

Divining rods? The History Channel is a mockery of journalism. It is the headquarters of ghost seekers, Sasquatch hunters, and Alien abduction victims. Are you kidding us?

Best part is, I can't tell he

Best part is, I can't tell he is trolling or serious. Neither would surprise me.

"Geologist Scott Wolter

"Geologist Scott Wolter visits a Minnesota farmer who wants to investigate the possible existence of bones from a giant he unearthed in his yard. The bones raise the question of whether Vikings could have traveled all the way to America."

I'm from Sweden, and I'm sorry to have to break it to you, but Vikings weren't giants.

Dowsing, giants and you were converted online? You seem to be a victim of the "I want to believe" effect.

How do you determine what to believe in, among all the alternatives on the History channel?

Scott walker is an expert

Scott walker is an expert with college years, besides, 9ft tall people are entirely plausible, google "Robert Wadlow"

I never said that Vikings were giants, but some where.

The History Channel is owned

The History Channel is owned by FOX noise. It isn't factual at all. Harry Truman is a troll of the first order.

So it's from Fox this it's

So it's from Fox this it's false? That's like saying that because this comment is from you it's false.

@ Harry Truman - Jainism,

@ Harry Truman - Jainism, Hinduism stated that humans were much taller in the past and with time our height began to become short. Thus if Giants are unearthed it would [rove them right.

They postulated this years before the Torah was even thought of.... Does that mean that the Torah copied from Hinduism or does it mean Hinduism is the right religion and rest all are false....

In my opinion this seems like a desperate attempt to validate your belief.

No it was just an interesting

No it was just an interesting fact, and just because Hindus believe something that we believe doesn't mean that we copied it from each other, in fact it confirms what I am saying. Since they both hold the same belief.

For example, two people are both witnesses of the same crime, so you conclude that they copied it from each other there for their claims are false. When in reality another person confirming a story validates that story.

yes but somehow Hinduism and

yes but somehow Hinduism and Judeo-christian viewpoint of God is contradictory to say the least.... does that mean that in this sense they are both false ?

There is also the time scale of existence that is completely different. Hinduism deals in epochs that cycle through different phases whereas judo-christian timescales accumulate to less than 10,000 years.

Finally on the giants itself. Judeochr istian myths account for a period when angels had sexual intercourse with earthly women and gave birth to Giants or something like that. whereas Hinduism says that all humans were of gigantic size... we evolved to a lesser height as the epochs went by and we shall continue to get shorter.... Both viewpoints tell completely unrelated stories ... How is that validation?.. Thats more like desperation.

As per your deduction if we unearthed giant bones it would also mean that the Lord of the rings and Harry potter are sacred books as both mention giants.... Or is it more likely that people saw taller individuals and labelled them giants, then exaggerated their heights?

It is easy to imagine why

It is easy to imagine why myth makers would introduce extreme height into the characterization of a mythical person. It makes that persons status as an enemy much more foreboding and heightens the underdog vs giant effect. For characters like Confucius height adds to the image of nobility and greatness. In modern eras we have more accurate data and so Napoleon (because he was short) has an image problem that is difficult to overcome even after death. Assuming Giants actually existed based on the authority of ancient accounts is simply ignorance.

"Wadlow reached 8 ft 11.1 in

"Wadlow reached 8 ft 11.1 in (2.72 m) in height and weighed 439 lb (199 kg) at his death at age 22. His great size and his continued growth in adulthood were due to hyperplasia of his pituitary gland, which results in an abnormally high level of human growth hormone."

"Sultan Kösen (Turkish: [suɫtɑn køsen]; born 10 December 1982) is a Turkish farmer who holds the Guinness World Record for tallest living male at 251 centimetres (8 ft 3 in). His growth resulted from a tumour affecting his pituitary gland. His stature is such that he must use crutches in order to walk."

Harry, your example and the current record holder for the tallest living male have something in common: a glandular condition which made/makes them unhealthy. This doesn't in any way indicate that giants ever roamed the planet. Besides, if they did, why is it only one man that has found fossilised evidence? Don't answer that, it was rhetorical.
