Giants appear on Earth mythology from many parts of the planet. The myths relate to early days of Earth. Some legends are passed down through the Holy Bible: “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 bore children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” Genesis 6:4-5 calls the giants Nephilim.
In Hinduism the giants are called Daltyas, and were the children of Diti and the sage of Kashyapa who fought against the gods or Devas.
In Native American mythology the Si-Te-Cah are the legendary tribe of re-haired cannibalistic giants, the remains of which were allegedly found in 1911 by miners in Nevada. This is disputed as the remains of these giants disappeared.
In Greek mythology the gigantes were involved in a conflict with the Olympian gods. There are giants in Balt, Bulgarian and Basque mythology and others.
While there are many countries that have long arms evidences of giants, in Australia, the author has read of many. In Bathurst a fossil was found of a lower back and the person would have been 25 feet tall. In Gympie in Queensland a large fragment of a jaw had its owner as being 10 foot tall. In the Blue Mountains had footprints of men 12 to 20 feet tall. Footprints in the Mackay River have men up to 17 feet tall. The aboriginal folklore was that before they arrived there were giant men.
