But is it really? What would we expect a year old person to look like, who lived in a much better environment than ours? Would we expect them to be exactly like us, or different? I would certainly expect them to be different. And the Bible says "there were giants in those days". So according to our best and most reliable source - the Bible - we should expect them to have been very large indeed the Bible never exagerates.
So what does the fossil record show? Well this is where things get interesting. Giant ancient humans would fly in the face of evolution. It would show that we have actually devolvednot evolved.

There are a few photos of giant skeletons out there on the Web, but I am rather cautious about displaying any such photos not knowing if they were photoshop creations. But there are few that appear to be genuine. Of course, the 'believability' for a Bible literalist is a somewhat less daunting proposition: We know these giants have existed.

The Bible also tells of Gog and Magogwho later entered European folklore, and of the famous battle between David and the Philistine Goliath.

Josephus also described the Amorites as giants in his Antiquities of the Jewscirca AD 93, indicating that some sort of fossils may have been on display at that time:  "For which reason they removed their camp to Hebron; and when they had taken it, they slew all the inhabitants.

Giant Skeletons Have Been Found Buried in Mounds Across America
The Cahokia mound is feet tall with a acre base, almost an entire acre larger than the pyramid at Giza. But what makes these and other mounds of their kind even more intriguing is what has been found buried inside of them.
Jim Vieira has made it his mission to explore the mystery behind these mounds and others where there is documentation of unearthed skeletons, often of gigantic proportions. Vieira, a stonemason by tradefound himself intrigued after finding a plethora of mysterious stone mounds throughout New England. He found that the construction, and particularly the stone work, of these mounds was impressive, considering the level of technology at the time.
He also noticed that the orientation of the mounds was such that the entrances faced a direction that was in alignment with the sun during the equinoxes. The mounds were built with massive stones and were present long before colonists from Europe crossed over. Vieira uncovered old reports in New England of giant skeletons unearthed from these mounds, often with two rows of teeth and jaws that could fit over the head of a normal-sized human.
The skeletons ranged in length from 7 to 10 feet tall. While this may sound ridiculous at first glance, it was not an isolated incident and is supported by reports from reputable news sources of the time. Other reports of the discovery of buried giants were also found in the south, midwest and west coast. In the Ohio River Valley, a report from a local paper, that was backed up by Scientific Americanfound bodies of several giants buried under a ten foot tall mound. One female skeleton was found holding a three-and-a-half-foot long child.
Another of the giant skeletons was buried in a clay coffin and an engraved stone tablet was also recovered. This particular mound was 64 feet long by 35 feet wide. The Chichasawba mound in Arkansas is another instance of the uncovering of a giant skeleton under similar circumstances.
The square-mile mound had its name taken from the chief of the Shawnee tribe who was essentially known to be a giant with incredible strength.
Chief Chicasawba lived in that area of Arkansas and when the mound was uncovered the skeleton of a massive human was found. Subsequently other skeletons up to ten feet tall were unearthed in the same area, all with similar burial artifacts found with them.
Some reports claimed the length of the skeletons legs to be five feet alone.
