There is no shortage of ancient texts and general evidence supporting the idea that giants lived on Earth. But you’ve probably never heard of a two-headed giant mummy from Patagonia that was 3.5 meters tall before.
Although there are many elaborate hoaxes showing off huge bones and strange-looking skeletons, some of the finds question our idea of life on Earth. The story of the mummy that scientists have given the name “Cap Two” is super interesting, and many people find it hard to believe.
So where did it come from?
The story begins in 1673, when this huge two-headed giant was captured by Spanish sailors, where he remained in captivity until he was killed while trying to escape from his captors – the Spaniards killed him with a pike to the chest.
His mummified remains then somehow made their way to England in the 19th century.
In 1914, after being passed from one collector to another, Cap Two’s mummified remains ended up at Birnbeck Pier in Weston. There its remains lay on display in a strange creature exhibit for about 45 years until they were purchased by Lord Thomas Howard in 1959.
“Cap Two” continued to surprise people and somehow ended up in Baltimore, Maryland, in the strange Bob’s Side Show collection at The Antique Man Ltd, owned by Robert Gerber and his wife.
You might think this is nothing more than another elaborate fake.
However, “Cap Two” does exist, and mummified remains can be seen in Gerber’s collection.
Mr. Gerber, however, tells a much different story than the one described above.
According to Gerber, “Cap Two” was actually found already dead on the beach with a massive spear thrust into his chest. This “creature” was mummified by locals in Paraguay, not Patagonia, until an English captain named George Bickle stumbled upon its remains, which were eventually transported to England, to a museum in Blackpool, where they remained on display for several years.
Eventually, the mummified remains were transported back to America to Baltimore.
So it existed, does this prove that giants were common in the past?
Of course, it is entirely possible that such creatures existed, and “Cap Two” is most likely real, but there is plenty of evidence for the existence of faux giants all over the world. However, this does not mean that if one of them is fake, so are all the others.
We can find many ancient texts and stories that mention the existence of giants. Some of these texts can even be found in religious books such as the Bible.
“In those days there were giants on the earth; and afterwards when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore them children, they became mighty men of old, men of renown.” -Give 6:4
The Nephilim are believed to have been the offspring of the “sons of God” and the “daughters of men” before the flood, according to Genesis 6:4; this name is also used for the giants who inhabited Canaan at the time of the Israelite conquest of Canaan, according to Numbers 13:33.
“And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, descended from the Nephilim; and we were as grasshoppers in our eyes, and such we were in their eyes.” -Numbers 13:33.
“Cap Two” actually existed, and his mummified body proves that giants did exist on Earth in the distant past, and that there is still much on Earth that remains unexplained.
