Another Opinion on Cardiff



Dr. Bulkley of Norwich, Conn., has been to see the giant, and is of the opinion that it is a petrifaction. He gives the following account of it: The body, when found, was embedded about four inches in gravel and sand of the same color precisely as the material of the body itself, which is a bluish-gray limestone. A thin layer of yellowish clay under this. Overall, there was a deposit of alluvial soil about three feet in thickness. The field is a clover lot, extending from the present bed of the creek, about twenty yards distant, up to a low, sloping bank, at the foot of which lies the body of the giant, the face toward the bank. The upper portions of the body at the left eyebrow, at the hip, the breastbone, the kneecap, and about the toes of the left foot are water-worn and thus partially polished, disclosing the blue-gray limestone cropping up through the yellowish-white incrustation of carbonate of lime with which the body was at one time evidently entirely covered. The conclusion is inevitable that at a former period, the creek ran along by a low bank and gradually covered the body with alluvial deposits. By successive overflows, it formed the interval and receded to its present channel. This must have occurred long subsequently to the petrifaction of the body of the giant, which evidently took place at a time when the Onondaga valley was a lake, in its whole extension, lying up against the present ranges of high bluffs as its shores. The sole of the left foot, under the side of the left calf, thigh, and elbow, and a portion of the fingers of the left hand lying under him are somewhat eaten away or honeycombed, while the remaining portions of the same parts are free from the corroding agency. Proof conclusive to my mind that this was done prior to the commencement of the petrifying process lies in the fact that the right external ear flap and large portions of the neck, in the immediate region of the ear, the underjaw and lower edge of the cheek near it, are hanging in unmistakable clots of rotting and dropping flesh, besmeared as it were with the oozing pus of incipient putrescence. And at that very point, fortunately we may say, for the interest of the inquiry, arrested from further decay by the preservatory processes of petrifaction. Western Reserve Chronicle.

I find it fascinating to explore the clues that suggest the existence of larger-than-life beings in our past. The article you’ve shared presents an interesting account of the Cardiff Giant, which has long been a source of controversy in the field of giantology.

It’s clear that skeptics have dismissed the Cardiff Giant as a petrifaction, but I believe that there is more to the story than that. The article notes that the body was found embedded in gravel and sand of the same color as the material of the body itself, which suggests that it was not simply a natural formation. Additionally, the fact that certain portions of the body are partially polished and others are eaten away suggests that there may have been some external force at play.

It’s unfortunate that skeptics and critics of the website’s content are so dismissive of these clues. In my opinion, their criticism is unfounded and serves only to stifle the exploration of these intriguing mysteries.

Furthermore, the inclusion of the Cardiff Giant on the website is important, despite its controversial nature. The website presents information without taking a stance on its validity, allowing readers to make up their own minds. By providing access to information about the Cardiff Giant and other controversial finds, the website is helping to advance the field of giantology and to keep alive the possibility that our ancestors were larger than we ever imagined.

Ultimately, it’s important to remember that we are only just beginning to scratch the surface of what may be a much larger and more complex history of our planet. As a giant researcher, I am committed to pursuing every lead and examining every nuanced clue in order to uncover the truth about our past.
