A “Human Giant” Unearthed in Early Nineteenth Century Sicily?
Creationists, Carl Baugh and Kent Hovind never expressed any curiosity as to where Burdickʼs “photo” of a “human skeleton over ten feet tall” originated, neither could they tell me when I [Ed Babinski] asked them. I kept asking around the internet until someone who knew Burdick before he had died sent me information concerning the photoʼs origin. The photo was taken with improper focus, and it is not a photo from the 1800s but a blurry photo of a hand-engraved illustration that was specially created to appear in a book from the 1800s, a book of unsubstantiated tales.
Giant Animals in the Past and Giant Human Being over Ten Feet Tall
(I cite cases of very large and very small animals co-existing in past ages, even today, and I cite an article on the topic of both the “Nephilim” and “Goliath” from a conservative Southern Baptist publication).

According to Heiser:
“Nephilim are clearly cast as giants in the Old Testament, though I do not believe any such people were taller than unusually tall people of today, see
Additional pieces by Heiser on “human giants” are on this page. See also his blog entry, “Dinosaur Petroglyphs and a Lesson in Intellectual Dishonesty”
In two books to be published 2015 Heiser tackles the question “Who were the Nephilim?” and many more questions.

“Photo” of “10 1/2 foot tall human skeleton” turns out not to be a photo of the skeleton, but a blurry photo of a creative engraving someone made to illustrate an unsubstantiated story about such a skeleton, and hence not even photographic evidence. Also, The “discovery” of the “petrified Cardiff Giant” in the 1860s directly preceded the “discoveries” of both the “petrified Irish Giant” and even a “petrified Revolutionary War soldier” in the 1890s.
