My research keeps drawing me back to South America, Patagonia and Aborigines of the world.
This video features several rare snippets about meeting Giants in Patagonia and South America. They’re first-hand, primary source accounts from early European explorers and they’ve almost never been made public over the years.
Apparently some elites in Europe were given the full accounts while the public was told it wasn’t true at all. The evidence shows that Shakespeare (aka Lord Byron, but not the same Byron who was the explorer mentioned here) had access to the full accounts and made mention of them in some of his plays. For instance, Shakespeare used the word “Setebo’s” to describe demons when the only other time the word has been referenced was in the text by Antonio Pigafetta about the beliefs of these giants.
WHAT’S A SPAN?
When describing the heights of some of the smaller Giants they sometimes use the term "span", which is the length between the tip of the thumb and the tip of the little finger. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Span_(unit)
WHAT DOES THE WORD PATAGONIA MEAN?
Some say the word "Patagones" means big foot, or big feet, but it actually comes from "Pentagones" which means five cubits.
WHAT’S A CUBIT?
A cubit is an ancient measurement of length based on the distance from the elbow to the tip of the longest finger. How many feet is 5 cubits? Depending on the length of one’s elbow, it can be anywhere from 7.5 to 10 feet. The actual length of a cubit varied between different ancient groups of people. Here are some ensamples from Egypt, Babylon, and ancient Israel:
Cubits to Inches:
Hebrew 17.5 in = 1 Cubit
Egyptian 17.6 in = 1 Cubit
Babylonian Long 19.8 in = 1 Cubit
Hebrew Long est. 20.4 in = 1 Cubit
Egyptian Long 20.6 in = 1 Cubit
To be fair we’ll use one of the smaller measurements, the Hebrew Cubit, to give the naysayers the benefit of the doubt. So, using a given height of 5 cubits, let’s do some basic maths:
5 (cubits) at 17.5 inches, (5 x 17.5) = 87.5 inches.
Now we’ll convert the inches to feet: so 87.5 inches divided by 12 (12 inches per foot) is:
87.5 divided by 12, (or 87.5 ÷ 12) = 7.29166666667 feet in height.
If we use the Royal Cubit, at 20.4 inches per Cubit, we get:
20.4 x 5 = 102 inches.
102 inches ÷ 12 (12 inches per foot) we get = 8.5 feet.
As you have seen and heard, many of the Giants were much taller. We all know about Genesis 6 and the book of Enoch. Here are a few more references:
Deuteronomy 1:4 KJV
4 After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei:
Deut 1:28 KJV 28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there.
Deut 2:10-11 KJV 10 The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; 11 Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites called them Emims.
Almost all of the pics used are from the ships artists who recorded what they saw as realistically as possible, almost photographically, in order to report this important intel to their respective Commanders and Kings.
This video also highlights some content from a video creator named "Seeing Is Believing – The Rocks Were Alive" from ytube and Instagram. A viewer (name withheld for now) who has been helping him and sending him content also sent me some great photos of Giants in the mountains and the earth. She suggested I check him out, show some of his content and promote him, which I’m more than happy to do. Check out his stuff, it’s really quite good. If you remember please let him know I sent you. Here’s a link to his site on ytube…
