Stories and stories about giant creatures inhabiting the Earth are found in almost all ancient cultures and civilizations. They were passed from generation to generation and exist to this day. However, more or less specific evidence confirming the existence of the giants, yet, if you do not take into account the several discovered huge tracks that date back millions of years. Local residents usually call such traces “traces of the gods.” Can history books and our knowledge of evolution be erroneous?
Giant trail from Pinyan
In August 2016, a group of photographers discovered the footprint of a giant human foot in the village of Pinyan in Guizhou Province, southwest of China. The length of the track was 57 cm in length, 20 cm in width and 3 cm in depth. Given that the size of a modern man’s foot is much smaller, this discovery can be considered surprising, as well as generating a question, and what we actually know about human history and evolution.
However, no authoritative source published any work on this topic either in the media or in scientific communities. Nevertheless, many fans of conspiracy theories picked up the original article with this information and linked it with other alleged giant footprints.
The origin of the tracks
Web sites for fans of hot facts argue that archaeologist Michael Tellinger dated one of these tracks at about 200 million years. In 2012, Tillinger allegedly found another track in Africa and said that this is one of the most eloquent proof that once upon a planet the giants roamed.
The third track was found in Bolivia, but the CNN agency reported that this is the imprint of a large carnivorous dinosaur, rather than an ancient giant. Prior to this, in 1987, Jerry MacDonald found in New Mexico another massive trail 100 cm long and presumably age 290 million years. This imprint was also “attributed” to the dinosaur, although he puzzled paleontologists.
The statements made by these conspiracy theorists have no weight when it comes to any academic research. The giant trail in Pinan, which remained in the solid granite, is allegedly unrealistic, since traces can not be left in the granite at all.
In addition, the stone is more than 3 billion years old, not 200 million. Thus, the detection of more and more prints generates more and more questions. Can these tracks be evidence of the existence of ancient giant humans, perhaps even our ancestors? While there is no certainty. But the findings are still interesting and mysterious.
