Numerous reports from the Aleutian Islands indicate that these islands were populated by giants of old. The prehistoric people were far from primitive and more mature than modern man. It is consistent that islands were the last habitat of giants large skeletons were found on nearly every known island in the world. This is an area where evolutionist story-telling could come in to play and giantologists and believers in transmutational pantheism (evolutionists) could agree that these giants existed on many islands.It poses no threat to their storytelling scenarios, . . . except for all the examples of them living on the mainland.
