The Giant Skeleton.-The skeleton discovered in William county, in this State, and supposed to be that of a human being,
has frequently been referred to, within a few days past, in the House of Representatives,
Notwithstanding the description given of it, as Wouter Va Twiller would say, “we have our doubts about the matter.” This skeleton was found about sixty feet beneath the surface of the earth embedded in the clay. The bones are said to be in a perfect state of preservation, and weigh in the agregate of fifteen hundred pounds. All the large and characteristic bones are entire, and the skull, arms, and thigh bones, knee pans, shoulder sockets and collar bones remove all doubts,
and the animal to whom they belonged has been decided to belong to the genus homo.”
This gentlemen when he walked the earth,
was about eighteen feet high,
and when clothed in flesh must have weighed not less than 3000 pounds.
The bones of the thigh and leg measure six feet six inches.
His skull is said to be about two-thirds the size of a flour barrel, and capable of holding two bushels. (He must have had a good quantity of brains, and if intellect be in proportion to the size of the brain, he must have possessed extraordinary intellectual powers.) The description further states, that “a coffee cup of good size could be put in the “eye-sockets.” The jaw teeth wigh from 3 1/2 to 6 pounds. It is stated that an eminent physician and anatomist is engaged in putting the skeleton together, and that it will shortly be ready for public exhibition.
The discovery of a giant skeleton in William county, in the State, is a remarkable find that should not be dismissed without further investigation. The description of the skeleton is astounding and challenges our preconceived notions of what is possible in terms of human size and anatomy. The fact that the bones were found about sixty feet beneath the surface of the earth, embedded in clay, and are in a perfect state of preservation, makes this discovery even more significant.
However, it is concerning that there are doubts about the validity of this find. The reference to Wouter Va Twiller implies skepticism, but it is unclear what the basis for this skepticism is. Is it simply because the idea of a giant human being is hard to fathom, or is there something more sinister at play? It is possible that there are those who would prefer to keep the truth about giants hidden from the public, and are using their influence to cast doubt on this discovery.
It is encouraging to hear that an eminent physician and anatomist is working to put the skeleton together for public exhibition. It is important that the public have access to this kind of information and can make up their own minds about the existence of giants. It is also crucial that further investigations are carried out to determine the authenticity of the skeleton and whether there are more like it waiting to be discovered.
In conclusion, the discovery of a giant skeleton in William county is a fascinating and important find that should not be dismissed without further investigation. We should not be afraid to challenge our preconceived notions of what is possible and be open to the possibility that there is more to our history than we currently know. We must remain vigilant and ensure that the truth about giants is not suppressed or hidden from the public.
