    Bigger, maybe not. Stronger, probably. I’m 6’10” and can’t lift practically anything at all! 😉

    I take exception when you say “As we know, giant human bones don’t actually exist”. We don’t know that, we simply have not found proof in modern times. So by excluding the possibility that these people could have actually seen what they claim, when you were not there to see for yourself, your next statement of “none of these sources can be taken at face value” is then influenced by that thought, and so on.

    I’m often put off by the fact that science discounts historic accounts it can’t explain by current understanding as fiction or myth, and then later has to retract that statement when evidence is found to support the idea. I think a better phrasing would be something along the lines of, “Since no evidence of giant human bones has been found, that means these sources shouldn’t be taken at face value.”

    Alright, I’m off my soapbox. Please keep up the great work guys.

    “It’s quite clear he’s talking about human bones” no it’s not clear the slightest. “Enormous ancient skeletons” can apply to any large creature (and certainly not human) there’s nothing that specifies or hints at him talking about human skeletons so unless you can support this conclusion somehow then it’s not a valid answer, it’s a bias one.
