    Look it up.

    You can even visit the place.
    it's all real. Including the red hair they all had.
    You might actually want too do some more research. They are not real.
    And not from a CT kook site.

    I just wanted to point out Lovelock Cave where they actually did recover skeletons of red-haired giants who had been preying on the local Indians.
    They got fed up and made war on them and corralled them in Lovelock cave and then built a big fire at the entrance and suffocated all of them.
    I believe they were like 7 or 8 feet tall.

    ...and were well preserved in feet of bat guano.
    In 1911 a pair of men from Lovelock discovered the cave's vast guano deposits, and spent a year digging it out and shipping it to a buyer in San Francisco. From the beginning their work was impeded by the density of artifacts mixed throughout the guano. Most of it they discarded into a rubbish heap outside the cave. In 1912 the work proved to be no longer worthwhile, when a meter or two down, the proportion of ancient artifacts exceeded the proportion of guano. They contacted the University of California and told them the cave was theirs to take over if they wanted, and the department head sent anthropologist Llewellyn L. Loud to check it out. The Humboldt Sink was well known for its open archaeological sites pertaining to the Lovelock Culture, but this was a previously unknown location.

    And it turned out to be the greatest yet. Nobody in the fields of anthropology or archaeology has ever received a greater bounty than Loud did on that day. To the amazement of the scientific community, he collected over 10,000 artifacts from the rubbish heap and various regions of the cave, mostly along the walls where the miners had not cut. Loud's workload was such that it took him 17 years before he was finally able to publish a comprehensive account of his findings.

    In none of it did he report anything pertaining to giants.

    In 1924 Loud and M. R. Harringon, with a number of Paiute assistants, continued the exploration. Again, no giants were mentioned.

    Further expeditions in 1936, by N. Nelson and Heizer and Krieger collected relics, but no giants.

    Krieger returned in 1949, 1950, and 1965. Still no giants.

    Re: Ancient Giants On Earth?

    The silliness of the comparison between the "modern dental impression" (which includes only the teeth and a small portion of the gum line) and the Lovelock mandible should be evident to anyone who is breathing. It has been pointed out before. The total size of the cast is smaller because it doesn't include all the bone of the mandible. In what we are shown, the comparable parts of the cast the and the mandible (the teeth and the tooth row) do not really appear to be that different in size. Ancient Aliens only shows us the "normal" plaster cast sitting in front of the Lovelock mandible, however, and doesn't actually give us a view that allows a direct comparison.

    OK. I first heard about it on a TV show.
    Will you work to personally PERPETUATE(30%) the political hate, or work to TERMINATE(70%) it?

    It's the sites you quite obviously get ask your ideas from. As to why you shouldn't use them the fact that you have to ask is rather telling

    But you don't seem to be able to answer my question and you can only throw an ad hominem.


    Now, that's telling!

    Thank you, zyzygy. This was the best and most polite way to correct my invalid idea.
    Instead of superiorly saying I watch "kook" sites, you showed me with links the correct data.
    This is how you can change someone's mind, and did.

    Thank you again.

    People listen when not insulted.
