Tall humans
I've heard stories before about groups of exceptionally tall humans, like the stories of tall people in the Bible (Goliath, giants in land of Canaan, etc). Is there any paleontological or archaeological evidence, etc about tall humans?

I was watching the bible skeptic on you tube. He does a whole video debunking the extremely tall humans aka giants in the bible. You can also check Guinness book of world records for tallest humans ever recorded.

How tall are you talking about? I have a family full of what I consider to be tall men, over 6 feet. My brother is 6 ft 6 and his son even taller.

RE: Tall humans
Indeed some historical artefact suggest that several communities had a taller average height compared to those of their neighbors. They were far from the idea we have of an actual giant (taller than any men can be), but would have been considered abnormally tall. They might even have inspired the idea of a race of giant people.

When I come across crazy batshit crazy religious nuts who believe the internet photos of giant skeletons are real, my FAVORITE thing to do run this video by them. Teehee.

RE: Tall humans
Robert Wallow is historically the worlds tallest person with evidence. He was 8'11. As for Giants, like from Mythology, no evidence.

There's a couple of continually circulating photoshops on the interwebz, Snopes is a good place to begin research about a particular pic, but here's a hint: They're all fake.
