                Hello all you fine folks out there! How has your week been? I hope and pray all went well. I am clear across the country and got here in one long day. But what a giant leap in technology to be able to travel thousands of miles in one day!

                This will be our last blog in our series on giants and the Bible. As if a giant toddler skeleton, scripture, and mentions of giants in many legends around the world isn’t enough evidence, we will now look into several artifacts that could only be wielded by humans of large size.

                Hand-axes, knives, adzes and other large implements are known as mega-tools. Mega-tools have been found in various places around the world.  For example a stone axe head over eighteen inches high was unearthed in Bathurst region of Australia. Figure 1.  Another example of a mega tool is an ancient 37 lb copper axe found in the same area. In 1960, at Tura in southwest Assam state in India near the border or Bangladesh, a crew digging a foundation for a new building on a college campus, unearthed a mound of stones less than four feet underground. The remains of a giant 11 foot human were claimed to have been there but they soon ‘disappeared. However, charcoal bits, flints, and a metal bowl buried with the giant are still around.

Four giant stone hand axes were recovered from the dry basin of Lake Makgadikgadi in the Kalahari

Desert. Giant stone artifacts have been found carved as hand axes, clubs, pounders, adzes, knives & other tools often ranging in weight from 8 to 36 lbs or more.

But by far, the highest concentration of giant artifacts is found in North America. Here, Douglas Bamforth, Anthropology professor for the University of Colorado at Boulder, left, and Patrick Mahaffy, property owner, show a portion of more than 80 artifacts unearthed

It is obvious these tools were constructed and used by people of large sizes. No average sized human today would be able to effectively utilized such implements. Once again scripture tells the truth when it says; “there were giants in those days.” 

Until next time, God bless and take care!

In the night sky this week; Monday, February 4,  “Jupiter's biggest moon, Ganymede, fades into eclipse by Jupiter's shadow around 7:35 p.m. EST. It reappears around 9:53 p.m. EST. Both events take place just east of the planet. Europa happens to be just south of Ganymede's reappearance point, by a bit less than a Jupiter diameter. When can you detect the first trace of Ganymede coming back? Later, Jupiter's Great Red Spot rotates across the planet's centerline at 11:25 p.m. EST.”
