Now you think, that I show you some pretty pictures of beautiful mermaids, but you are wrong. If there are mermaids they look pretty hideous and ugly if these reports, videos and pictures are genuine. First some description like always and then sightings, videos, pics and conclusion. Here is the description:
A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Africa and Asia. The first stories appeared in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis transforms herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. Mermaids are sometimes depicted as perilous creatures associated with floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drowning. In other folk traditions (or sometimes within the same tradition) they can be benevolent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.
Mermaids are associated with the Sirens of Greek mythology and with the Sirenia, a biological order which comprises dugongs and manatees. Historical sightings by sailors may have been the result of misunderstood encounters with these aquatic mammals. Christopher Columbus reported seeing mermaids while exploring the Caribbean, and sightings have been reported in the 20th and 21st centuries in Canada, Israel, and Zimbabwe. The US National Ocean Service stated in 2012 that no evidence of mermaids has ever been found.
Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen wrote his popular fairy tale “The Little Mermaid” in 1836. They have subsequently been depicted in opera, paintings, books, films, and comics.
Etymology and related terms
The word mermaid is a compound of the Old Englishmere (sea), and maid (a girl or young woman).The equivalent term in Old English was merewif.They are conventionally depicted as beautiful with long flowing hair.They are sometimes equated with the Sirens of Greek mythology (especially the Odyssey), half-bird femme fatales whose enchanting voices drew sailors onto the rocks of their island, shipwrecking them.
Sirenia is an order of fully aquatic, herbivorous mammals that inhabit rivers, estuaries, coastal marine waters, swamps, and marine wetlands. Sirenians, including manatees and the dugong, have major aquatic adaptations: arms used for steering, a paddle used for propulsion, hind limbs (legs) as two small bones floating deep in the muscle. They appear fat, but are fusiform, hydrodynamic, and highly muscular. Before the mid 19th century, mariners called these animals mermaids.
Sirenomelia, also called “mermaid syndrome”, is a rare congenitaldisorder in which a child is born with his or her legs fused together and reduced genitalia. This condition is about as rare as conjoined twins, affecting one out of every 100,000 live births and is usually fatal within a day or two of birth because of kidney and bladder complications. Four survivors were known as of July 2003.
In 1493 while sailing off the coast of Hispaniola, Christopher Columbus reported seeing three “female forms” which “rose high out of the sea, but were not as beautiful as they are represented”.The logbook of Blackbeard, an English pirate, records that he instructed his crew on several voyages to steer away from charted waters which he called “enchanted” for fear of merfolk or mermaids, which Blackbeard and members of his crew reported seeing.These sighting were often recounted and shared by sailors and pirates who believed that mermaids were bad luck and would bewitch them into giving up their gold and dragging them to the bottom of the sea. Two sightings were reported in Canada near Vancouver and Victoria—one from sometime between 1870 and 1890, the other from 1967.
During World War II in 1943, Japanese soldiers witnessed several mermaids on the shores of the Kei Islands. They reported seeing creatures swimming in the water—and one sighting on the beach—which had pink skin and spikes along their head. These creatures reportedly were about 150 centimeters tall and had limbs and faces that were similar to that of a human but a mouth like a carp. The locals called them Orang Ikan, which means “fish man” in Malay. Several of these sightings occurred and were reported to Sergeant Taro Horiba, who asked the locals about it and learned that they sometimes got caught in the nets. The locals promised to send word to the Sergeant next time one was caught. Eventually, one of the creatures was found dead on the shore and the Sergeant was allowed to examine it. Being convinced, he returned to Japan and tried to convince scientists to go study them but he was never believed.
In August 2009, after dozens of people reported seeing a mermaid leaping out of the water and doing aerial tricks, the Israeli coastal town of Kiryat Yam offered a $1 million award for proof of the mermaid.In February 2012, work on two reservoirs near Gokwe and Mutare in Zimbabwe stopped when workers refused to continue, stating that mermaids had hounded them away from the sites. It was reported by Samuel Sipepa Nkomo, the water resources minister.
On January 9, 2013, during an episode of Mistero broadcast by Italia 1, images were shown of a purported mermaid’s corpse on a Sri Lankan beach.
Animal Planet has made a documentary about mermaids and founded evidence. They say that all information in the video is faked and it is a hoax, but I still think there is some truth in it so watch it yourself here:
Then we have different kind of “Real” sightings or corpses found after tsunami’s or like that and here is the most realistic of them. Some fishers got mermaid in their net or just another hoax:
Then we have corpse found after tsunami:
And then we have actual footage under water of “real” mermaid compared to human in mermaid costume swimming:
And some more:
Then I shed some information from a site, which deals many of these kind of topics:
A very strange case:
During an expedition in the sea of Gouller, at three hours from Australia, a fishing boat that had caught fire was found, this ship belonged to the Company Bennete of Brazil. This ship had left on August 16 Saturday from the Port of Itajai, Brazil and at two hours of sailing it was detected by the navy of Australia. It is impossible that a ship coming from Itajai, Brazil arrives in two hours to Australia.
This is the story that the journalist Merlon Frougers, of the newspaper Australia Daily News, published and only in a couple of hours of having released the publication, surprisingly all the newspapers were bought by a company called CYRSON, which is a company that belongs to the government of the United States.
Along with the debris there were several bodies of the crew members, but surprisingly they found a burned body that didn’t belong to a member of the crew. Apparently, these pictures were taken in the University of Columbia, where scientists are examining the so strange body that apparently belongs to mythology, but surprisingly in the captain’s logbook the following words were recorded: “They have been following us for more than two days, only few of us have seen them”. James Kollen (technician of the ship) spoke to one of those beings and they want us to follow them to a land that nobody knows, they have given us a map we cannot decipher, it is not written in any known language. The creatures are small, they are beautiful, but at the same time they inspire distrust.”
At the end of the recording it is possible to listen the following thing: “We captured one, but I believe that it was a mistake, we could see a wave in the distance, maybe it’s the biggest wave ever sighted. It might be of 200 meters high from our point of view. I have requested help but the radios don’t work, the GSP system is altered, we don’t know where we are, I have requested the immediate evacuation of Marlin 2, but I don’t believe that we could go further. We are surrounded by those creatures and in the distance we can see the enormous wave that comes at us with all its force, as if it were a person. Particularly I don’t believe in myths and legends, but we are terrified and the crew says that in that wave it’s possible to see a person, it is as if the person came out of the wave. We believe that it is at more than 1000 miles N. May God bless us and forgive us for having captured what we all have called Mermaid”
Marlin 2 were found on August 18 Monday by the captain Peter Houner with the ship “JKP-SYD”, he has not given any interview and at the present time he is in the Military Base of Janner, Australia, he has not been seen ever since along with his crew.
The pictures taken of the bodies during the rescue were immediately destroyed entirely by four people who came in a black helicopter without registration, two people came down exclusively to take the mermaid’s body and all the video cameras, photographs and recordings, they took also parts of the map that were floating on the surface.
Who were these people? Why did they hide evidence? Did these creatures exist in fact if so, how many are there at the present time? Why is the government of the United States always involved in this type of discoveries?
Very difficult topic to research, because of amount of information, disinformation and the fact that the mermaids are so common in folklore and fairytales. But do you believe that people would make mermaid corpses, put them lying on the ground, make video of finding them and then put it to YouTube? If so then some people have too much time in their hands
The next myth relates to ancient giants. There is huge amount of data about giants and it’s very hard to tell which information is real and which is fiction, but here it goes. And this is topic which interest me the most so maybe there will be more postings about giants in the future. Here is the start:
There are also accounts of giants in the Old Testament, most famously Goliath. Attributed to them are extraordinary strength and physical proportions.
Fairy tales such as Jack the Giant Killer have formed our modern perception of giants as stupid and violent monsters, sometimes said to eat humans, especially children (though this is actually a confusion with ogres, which are distinctly cannibalistic). The ogre in Jack and the Beanstalk is often described as a giant. However, in some more recent portrayals, like those of Roald Dahl, some giants are both intelligent and friendly, as in Gulliver’s Travels.
“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:4-5KJV)
According to the Bible (Genesis 7:23), the Nephilim were destroyed in the Flood; however, further giants are reported after the Flood, including:
The Bible also tells of Gog and Magog, who later entered into European folklore, and of the famous battle between David and the Philistine giant Goliath. The 1st century historian Josephus, and the 1st-2nd century BC Dead Sea Scrolls give Goliath’s height as “four cubits and a span,” approximately 2.00 m or about six feet seven inches.The King James translation of the Bible reports the giant Goliath as “six cubits and a span” in height—about nine feet nine inches tall, (over 2.75 m) (1Samuel 17:4 KJV), but the Septuagint, a Greek Bible, gives Goliath’s height as “four cubits and a span” (~2.00 m).
Jewish Historian Flavius Josephus also described the Amorites as giants in his Antiquities of the Jews, circa 93 AD, indicating that fossil evidence still remained at that time.:”For which reason they removed their camp to Hebron; and when they had taken it, they slew all the inhabitants. There were till then left the race of giants, who had bodies so large, and countenances so entirely different from other men, that they were surprising to the sight, and terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown to this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men.”
In Hinduism, the giants are called Daityas. The Daityas (दैत्य) were the children of Diti and the sage Kashyapa who fought against the gods or Devas because they were jealous of their Deva half-brothers. Since Daityas were a power-seeking race, they sometimes allied with other races having similar ideology namely Danavas and Asuras. Daityas along with Danavas and Asuras are sometimes called Rakshasas, the generic term for a demon in Hindu mythology. Some known Daityas include Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha. The main antagonist of the Hindu epic Ramayana, Ravana, was a Brahmin from his father’s side and a Daitya from his mother’s side. His younger brother Kumbhakarna was said to be as tall as a mountain and was quite good natured.
Native American mythology
According to Paiute oral history, the Si-Te-Cah or Sai’i are a legendary tribe of red-haired cannibalistic giants, the remains of which were allegedly found in 1911 by guano miners in Nevada’s Lovelock Cave. Furthermore, the Paiute creation story tells of “beautiful giants” who once lived between the Sierra Nevada and the Rocky Mountains. After giving birth to a disfigured child, the giants treated the child so poorly that the Great Spirit responded by making the land hot and desolate and allowing enemies to conquer the giants. Only two giants survived: Paiute and his wife, both of whose skin became brown from eternally living in the hot desert.
Adrienne Mayor writes about the Si-Te-Cah in her book, Legends of the First Americans.She suggests that the ‘giant’ interpretation of the skeletons from Lovelock Cave and other dry caves in Nevada was started by entrepreneurs setting up tourist displays and that the skeletons themselves were of normal size. However, about a hundred miles north of Lovelock there are plentiful fossils of mammoths and cave bears, and their large limb bones could easily be thought to be those of giants by an untrained observer. She also discusses the reddish hair, pointing out that hair pigment is not stable after death and that various factors such as temperature, soil, etc. can turn ancient very dark hair rusty red or orange.
Herodotus in Book 1, Chapter 68, describes how the Spartans uncovered in Tegea the body of Orestes which was seven cubits long—around 10 feet. In his book The Comparison of Romulus with TheseusPlutarch describes how the Athenians uncovered the body of Theseus, which was of more than ordinary size. The kneecaps of Ajax were exactly the size of a discus for the boy’s pentathlon, wrote Pausanias. A boy’s discus was about twelve centimeters in diameter, while a normal adult patella is around five centimeters, suggesting Ajax may have been around 14 feet (~4.3 meters) tall.
The Cyclopes, usually children of Gods (Olympians) and nature spirits (nereids, naiads and dryads), are also compared to giants due to their huge size (Polyphemus, son of Poseidon and Thoosa, and nemesis of Odysseus and Jason, comes to mind).
Several Jupiter-Giant-Columns have been found in Germania Superior. These were crowned with a statue of Jupiter, typically on horseback, defeating or trampling down a Giant, often depicted as a snake. They are restricted to the area of south-western Germany, western Switzerland, French Jura and Alsace.
In Norse mythology, the Jotun (jötnar in Old Norse, a cognate with ettin) are often opposed to the gods. While often translated as “giants”, most are described as being roughly human sized. Some are portrayed as huge, such as frost giants (hrímþursar), fire giants (eldjötnar), and mountain giants (bergrisar).
The giants are the origin of most of various monsters in Norse mythology (e.g. the Fenrisulfr), and in the eventual battle of Ragnarök the giants will storm Asgard and defeat them in war. Even so, the gods themselves were related to the giants by many marriages, and there are giants such as Ægir, Loki, Mímir and Skaði, who bear little difference in status to them.
Norse mythology also holds that the entire world of men was once created from the flesh of Ymir, a giant of cosmic proportions, which name is considered by some to share a root with the name Yama of Indo-Iranian mythology.
An old Icelandic legend says that two night-prowling giants, a man and a woman, were traversing the fjord near Drangey Island with their cow when they were surprised by the bright rays of daybreak. As a result of exposure to daylight, all three were turned into stone. Drangey represents the cow and Kerling (supposedly the female giant, the name means “Old Hag”) is to the south of it. Karl (the male giant) was to the north of the island, but he disappeared long ago.
In folklore from all over Europe, giants were believed to have built the remains of previous civilizations. Saxo Grammaticus, for example, argues that giants had to exist, because nothing else would explain the large walls, stone monuments, and statues that we now know were the remains of Roman construction. Similarly, the Old English poemSeafarer speaks of the high stone walls that were the work of giants. Even natural geologic features such as the massive basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway on the coast of Northern Ireland were attributed to construction by giants. Giants provided the least complicated explanation for such artifacts.
Medieval romances such as Amadis de Gaula feature giants as antagonists, or, rarely, as allies. This is parodied famously in Cervantes’ Don Quixote, when the title character attacks a windmill, believing it to be a giant. This is the source of the phrase tilting at windmills.
Tales of combat with giants were a common feature in the folklore of Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Celtic giants also figure in Breton and Arthurianromances perhaps as a reflection of the Nordic and Slavic mythology that arrived on the boats, and from this source they spread into the heroic tales of Torquato Tasso, Ludovico Ariosto, and their follower Edmund Spenser. In the small Scottish village of Kinloch Rannoch, a local myth to this effect concerns a local hill that apparently resembles the head, shoulders, and torso of a man, and has therefore been termed ‘the sleeping giant’. Apparently the giant will awaken only if a specific musical instrument is played near the hill. Other giants, perhaps descended from earlier Germanic mythology, feature as frequent opponents of Dietrich von Bern in medieval German tales – in later portrayals Dietrich himself and his fellow heroes also became giants.
Many giants in English folklore were noted for their stupidity.A giant who had quarreled with the Mayor of Shrewsbury went to bury the city with dirt; however, he met a shoemaker, carrying shoes to repair, and the shoemaker convinced the giant that he had worn out all the shoes coming from Shrewsbury, and so it was too far to travel.
Other English stories told of how giants threw stones at each other. This was used to explain many great stones on the landscape.
In Kalevala, Antero Vipunen is a giant shaman that possesses mighty spells dating to the creation. Epic hero Väinämöinen sets out to learn these spells from him, but Vipunen is buried underground, and when Väinämöinen digs him out, he is accidentally swallowed by Vipunen. Väinämöinen then forces Vipunen to submit and sing the spells out by hammering his insides. An analysis by Martti Haavio is that Vipunen is not physically large, but his familiar animal (astral form) is a whale. The depiction is not found in the majority of Finnish original stories, and most probably originates from the book’s compiler Elias Lönnrot.
Possible Fossil Evidence
Through the centuries, certain archaeologists have searched for fossil evidence of a race of giants. Alleged evidence includes:
The Giant of Castelnau: Estimated at 11 feet, 6 inches tall. Discovered by the anthropologist Georges Vacher de Lapouge at the Bronze Age cemetery of Castelnau-le-Lez, France in the winter of 1890.
1894 press accounts mentioned a discovery of bones of human giants unearthed at a prehistoric cemetery at Montpellier, France. Skulls “28, 31, and 32 inches in circumference” were reported alongside other bones of gigantic proportions which indicated they belonged to a race of men “between 10 and 15 feet in height.” The bones were reportedly sent to the Paris Academy for further study.
The remains of the Si-Te-Cah or Sai’i, a legendary tribe of red-haired cannibalistic giants, which were allegedly found in 1911 by guano miners in Nevada’s Lovelock Cave.However, the size and nature of the fossil remains has been disputed by Adrienne Mayor in the book, Fossil Legends of the First Americans.
There you have some history and mythology about giants and then I gather some evidence of existence of the giants. First a man who has found a giant skull called Ed Conrad:
“There was a time when Conrad regarded the integrity of the scientific establishment as beyond reproach. But after seven years of dealing with paleontologists and archaeologists, he said he has found them to be a devious and untrustworthy bunch whose actions in relation to him have been downright dishonest and deceitful.”
“Conrad believes his discovery has frightened members of the archeological/ paleontological establishment out of their wits. They dread the truth, he says, because they know their cozy little clique will be gone with the eons. No longer will they be able to sup at the trough of Darwinism, enjoying soft jobs with huge salaries.”
This is the boulder with the human skull protruding that Ed Conrad discovered in 1982, about a year after finding the specimen resembling the anthropoid skull. It was found in the same general area in precisely this position, with the jawbone facing downward. The Smithsonian had admitted that the protrusion does indeed resemble a human skull.
This giant skull, embedded in solid rock, presents several problems for materialists.
“And it may seem harmless to you now that its been exposed. But, did you know that over 500 people obtained their PhD’s by writing their thesis on “the Piltdown Man”? I dare say, no one took back those PhDs after it was exposed, and those people taught hundreds of thousands of people.” Wyatt, Newletter Five
In 1982 Dr. Lyall Watson stated: “The fossils that decorate our family tree are so scarce that there are still more scientists than specimens. The remarkable fact is that all of the physical evidence we have for human evolution can still be placed, with room to spare, inside a single coffin!”
Likewise, a 1994 article in Time Magazine admitted that: “Yet despite more than a century of digging, the fossil record remains maddeningly sparse. With so few clues, even a single bone that doesn’t fit into the picture can upset everything. Virtually every major discovery has put deep cracks in the conventional wisdom and forced scientists to concoct new theories, amid furious debate.”
Prior to more recent developments of techniques for dating by means of radioactive materials, there were fundamentally only two methods of estimating the age of a fossil. The first was the geological level at which the specimen was found.
The second, applying more particularly to human fossils, was the general appearance: whether apish and “primitive,” or essentially like modern man. These two criteria are still largely applied, since the majority of the more ancient remains of early man are completely fossilized and C-14 methods of dating cannot be used.
But it has long been recognized that if the fossil remains of early man are arranged according to their degree of primitiveness, the order will be found to contradict the series arranged on the basis of antiquity as established by the levels at which they are found.”
GIGANTOPITHECUS” & “MEGANTHROPUS”
There is no controversy about these facts; there was a race or group of people found in Australia called “meganthropus” by anthropologists. These people were of very large size–estimated between 7 to 12 feet tall, depending on what source you read.
These people were found with mega tool artifacts, so their humaness is difficult to question. Four jaw fragments and thousands of teeth have been found in China of “gigantopithecus blacki”–named after the discover. Based on the size of the teeth and deep jaws, its size has been estimated at around 10 feet and as tall as 12 feet, 1200 pounds. (Photo:Giant human femur reportedly found in Turkey)
The “problem” is that human fossils are the rarest of all, and generally, only the hardest bones, jaws, teeth and skulls survive. As with most “early man” artistic recreations, a great deal of the individual is surmised.
The question is, is gigantopithecus a man or an ape? I personally have no opinion, but it is clear that very large men did live once. Scientists are of course afraid of being ridiculed and rather than estimate the size of the individuals possessing larger skulls and teeth than “us”, they prefer to use the term robust.
Anthropologists spend quite a bit of time trying to decide what is an ape, what is a man, who they believe descended from who and the like. Now, most consider gigantopithecus an ape,(its more convenient to the theory of evol) but the co-discover at least, and many others still see no difference between the teeth and jaws of Giganto than other so-called ancestors.
As we said, everyone believes that meganthropus with his mega-tools was a “man”. Tools have been found in the same area as giganto as well, but the tendency has been to associate them with other “types’ found at the same location.

None-the-less, he is a very intriguing, enigmatic, and entertaining. He’ll definitely stretch your imagination to new limitations! 🙂
Then there is a cave where they have found bones of giants and burned human bones called “The Breitenwinner Cave”:
What it is:
A Bavarian catacomb located in a cave on the German/Swiss border containing thousands of normal, and not so normal, giant, human bones. The normal size bones are found burned and brittle in a massive mound of bones, wood, and ash. The giant bones are buried, or arranged in a ritualistic manner.
What it might be:
Is this a massive burial cave for an ancient race of giants? Is it a possible crematorium for the missing prisoners of Stalag 383, a nearby Nazi prisoner of war camp, with a nasty reputation?
Latest news related to Giants was this newsarticle about mummified giant finger:
A giant finger was discovered in Egypt in 1988. The finger was almost 16 inches long and is estimated to have been from the hand of a being that would have stood around 16 feet in height. Swiss archaeologist Gregor Spörri released the photo to the newspaper Bild last year. The picture were taken in 1988 during his private trip to Egypt.
The finger was later stolen. Was it real or a hoax? There are reputed to be giant human mummies in Egypt that have been hidden by archaeologists. The stolen giant human finger allegedly came from a giant mummy found in graves around Giza pyramids.
What you are looking at is a gigantic, nearly 16 inches long, mummified humanoid finger and the creatures height would hve been over 16.4 feet! In 1988, Spörri on the last day of a private trip to Egypt, he met an old man from a grave robber dynasty. The meeting was took place in a farm-house in Bir Hooker, 100 kilometers northeast of Cairo.
After paying, $300 Spörri had a look at the grave robber’s treasure which was the skin and bone wrapped in old rags
Spörri told BILD.de: “It was an oblong package, smelled musty. I was totally flabbergasted when I saw the dark brown giant finger.”
I was allowed to take it in hand and also to take pictures; a bill was put next to it to get a size comparison. “The bent finger was split open and covered with dried mold.” It was surprisingly light maybe a few hundred grams My heart was up to his neck. That was incredible. In size to a matching body should have been about 15 feet tall”
Were there giants in Egypt? The Roman historian Flavius Josephus reported in 79 AD in his history of the Jewish War that “There were giants. Much larger and different than normal people. Horrible to look at. Who has not seen with his own eyes, he can ot believe that they have been so enormous. ” Josephus also says that in the vicinity of Hebron during the time of Moses that “There were till then left the race of giants, who had bodies so large, and countenances so entirely different from other men, that they were surprising to the sight, and terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown to this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men”
Some think the finger may have belonged to a Gigantopithecus blacki.
Gigantopithecus is an extinct genus of ape that existed from roughly nine million years to as recently as one hundred thousand years ago, in what is now China, India, and Vietnam, placing Gigantopithecus in the same time frame and geographical location as several hominin species.The fossil record suggests that individuals of the species Gigantopithecus blacki were the largest apes that ever lived, standing up to 3 m (9.8 ft), and weighing up to 540 kg (1,200 lb)
A comparison graph of a 1.8-m-tall human male in comparison to Gigantopithecus blacki (left) and G. giganteus (right): This graph is based on orangutan proportions while standing upright.
The first Gigantopithecus remains described by an anthropologist were found in 1935 by Ralph von Koenigswald in an apothecary shop. Fossilized teeth and bones are often ground into powder and used in some branches of traditional Chinese medicine. Von Koenigswald named the theorized species Gigantopithecus.
Since then, relatively few fossils of Gigantopithecus have been recovered. Aside from the molars recovered in Chinese traditional medicine shops, Liucheng Cave in Liuzhou, China, has produced numerous Gigantopithecus blacki teeth, as well as several jawbones. Other sites yielding significant finds were in Vietnam and India. These finds suggest the range of Gigantopithecus was southeast Asia.
In 1955, 47 G. blacki teeth were found among a shipment of ‘dragon bones’ (aka, “oracle bones”) in China. Tracing these teeth to their source resulted in recovery of more teeth and a rather complete large mandible. By 1958, three mandibles and more than 1,300 teeth had been recovered. Gigantopithecus remains have come from sites in Hubei, Guangxi, and Sichuan, from warehouses for Chinese medicinal products, as well as from cave deposits. Not all Chinese remains have been dated to the same time period, and the fossils in Hubei appear to be of a later date than elsewhere in China. The Hubei teeth are also larger.
Gigantopithecus’s method of locomotion is uncertain, as no pelvic or leg bones have been found. The dominant view is that it walked on all fours like modern gorillas and chimpanzees; however, a minority opinion favors bipedal locomotion, most notably championed by the late Grover Krantz, but this assumption is based only on the very few jawbone remains found, all of which are U-shaped and widen towards the rear. This allows room for the windpipe to be within the jaw, allowing the skull to sit squarely upon a fully erect spine as in modern humans, rather than roughly in front of it, as in the other great apes.
The majority view is that the weight of such a large, heavy animal would put enormous stress on the creature’s legs, ankles, and feet if it walked bipedally; while if it walked on all four limbs, like gorillas, its weight would be better distributed over each limb.
The jaws of Gigantopithecus are deep and very thick. The molars are low-crowned and flat, and exhibit heavy enamel suitable for tough grinding. The premolars are broad and flat and configured similarly to the molars. The canine teeth are neither pointed nor sharp, while the incisors are small, peglike, and closely aligned. The features of teeth and jaws suggested that the animal was adapted to chewing tough, fibrous food by cutting, crushing, and grinding it. Gigantopithecus teeth also have a large number of cavities, similar to those found in giant pandas, whose diet, which includes a large amount of bamboo, may be similar to that of Gigantopithecus.
In addition to bamboo, Gigantopithecus consumed other vegetable foods, as suggested by the analysis of the phytoliths adhering to its teeth. An examination of the microscopic scratches and gritty plant remains embedded in Gigantopithecus teeth suggests they ingested seeds and fruit, as well as bamboo
Gigantopithecus blacki is only known through fossil teeth and mandibles found in cave sites in Southeast Asia. As the name suggests, these are appreciably larger than those of living gorillas, but the exact size and structure of the rest of the body can only be estimated in the absence of additional findings. Dating methods have shown that G. blacki existed for about a million years, going extinct about 100,000 years ago after having been contemporary with (anatomically) modern humans (Homo sapiens) for tens of thousands of years, and co-existing with H. erectus before the appearance of H. sapiens.
Based on the fossil evidence, adult male Gigantopithecus blacki are believed to have stood about 3 m (9.8 ft) tall and weighed as much as 540 kg (1,200 lb), making the species two to three times heavier than modern gorillas and nearly five times heavier than the orangutan, its closest living relative. Large males may have had an armspan of over 12 ft (3.6 m). The species was highly sexually dimorphic, with adult females roughly half the weight of males. Due to wide interspecies differences in the relationship between tooth and body size, some argue that it is more likely that Gigantopithecus was much smaller, at roughly 1.8 m (5.9 ft).
The species lived in Asia and probably inhabited bamboo forests, since its fossils are often found alongside those of extinct ancestors of the panda. Most evidence points to Gigantopithecus being a plant-eater.
Its appearance is not known, because of the fragmentary nature of its fossil remains. It possibly resembled modern gorillas, because of its supposedly similar lifestyle. Some scientists, however, think it probably looked more like its closest modern relative, the orangutan. Being so large, Gigantopithecus possibly had few or no enemies when fully grown. However, younger, weak, or injured individuals may have been vulnerable to predation by tigers, pythons, crocodiles, Dinofelis, hyenas, bears, and Homo erectus.
So much information and so little time. It’s up to you if you want to find more information about Giants. The Net is full of it and the hardest thing is to find the information which could be reliable and backed up with some facts. This information is just brought to wake up your interest towards these Giant beings, which I think once walked on Earth. Or what do you think about for example Russian boxer called Nikolai Valuev, is he a normal person? I think he is a descendant of a Giant:
Nikolai Sergeyevich Valuev (Russian: Николай Сергеевич Валуев Russian pronunciation: [nʲɪkɐˈlaj sʲɪrˈɡʲejɪvʲɪtɕ vɐˈlʊjɪf]; born 21 August 1973) is a retired Russian professional boxer and former two-time WBAheavyweight champion. In his last fight (on 7 November 2009), he lost the title to David Haye as a result of a 12-round majority decision. Three days after the fight, Valuev announced his retirement.
Then I just have to post a great song called “Penetration” from a band called “Nefilim”:
Huh… what a post and remember to stay tuned for more CREATURES FROM BEYOND!
This is so legendary tale, that I’m going to describe just a little of Nessie and then try to focus on the latest information about it. Here is the description of Nessie:
The Loch Ness Monster is a cryptid, reputedly a large unknown animal that is said to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. It is similar to other supposed lake monsters in Scotland and elsewhere, though its description varies from one account to the next. Popular interest and belief in the animal’s existence has varied since it was first brought to the world’s attention in 1933. Evidence of its existence is anecdotal, with minimal and much-disputed photographic material and sonar readings.
The most common speculation among believers is that the creature represents a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs.The scientific community regards the Loch Ness Monster as a modern-day myth, and explains sightings as including misidentifications of more mundane objects, outright hoaxes, and wishful thinking.Despite this, it remains one of the most famous examples of cryptozoology. The legendary monster has been affectionately referred to by the nickname Nessie (Scottish Gaelic: Niseag)since the 1950s.
The term “monster” was reportedly applied for the first time to the creature on 2 May 1933 by Alex Campbell, the water bailiff for Loch Ness and a part-time journalist, in a report in the Inverness Courier.On 4 August 1933, the Courier published as a full news item the assertion of a London man, George Spicer, that a few weeks earlier while motoring around the Loch, he and his wife had seen “the nearest approach to a dragon or pre-historic animal that I have ever seen in my life”, trundling across the road toward the Loch carrying “an animal” in its mouth.Other letters began appearing in the Courier, often anonymously, with claims of land or water sightings, either on the writer’s part or on the parts of family, acquaintances or stories they remembered being told.These stories soon reached the national (and later the international) press, which described a “monster fish”, “sea serpent”, or “dragon”,eventually settling on “Loch Ness Monster”.On 6 December 1933 the first purported photograph of the monster, taken by Hugh Gray, was published in the Daily Express,and shortly after the creature received official notice when the Secretary of State for Scotland ordered the police to prevent any attacks on it.In 1934, interest was further sparked by what is known as The Surgeon’s Photograph. In the same year R. T. Gould published a book,the first of many that describe the author’s personal investigation and collected record of additional reports pre-dating 1933. Other authors have claimed that sightings of the monster go as far back as the 6th century (see below).
Saint Columba (6th century)
The earliest report of a monster associated with the vicinity of Loch Ness appears in the Life of St. Columba by Adomnán, written in the 7th century.According to Adomnán, writing about a century after the events he described, the Irish monk Saint Columba was staying in the land of the Picts with his companions when he came across the locals burying a man by the River Ness. They explained that the man had been swimming the river when he was attacked by a “water beast” that had mauled him and dragged him under. They tried to rescue him in a boat, but were able only to drag up his corpse. Hearing this, Columba stunned the Picts by sending his follower Luigne moccu Min to swim across the river. The beast came after him, but Columba made the sign of the cross and commanded: “Go no further. Do not touch the man. Go back at once.”The beast immediately halted as if it had been “pulled back with ropes” and fled in terror, and both Columba’s men and the pagan Picts praised God for the miracle.
The oldest manuscript relating to this story was put online in 2012.Believers in the Loch Ness Monster often point to this story, which takes place on the River Ness rather than the loch itself, as evidence for the creature’s existence as early as the 6th century.However, sceptics question the narrative’s reliability, noting that water-beast stories were extremely common in medieval saints’ Lives; as such, Adomnán’s tale is likely a recycling of a common motif attached to a local landmark.According to the sceptics, Adomnán’s story may be independent of the modern Loch Ness Monster legend entirely, only becoming attached to it in retrospect by believers seeking to bolster their claims.In an article for Cryptozoology, A. C. Thomas notes that even if there were some truth to the story, it could be explained rationally as an encounter with a walrus or similar creature that had swum up the river.R. Binns acknowledges that this account is the most serious of various alleged early sightings of the monster, but argues that all other claims of monster sightings prior to 1933 are highly dubious and do not prove that there was a tradition of the monster before this date.
Modern interest in the monster was sparked by a sighting on 22 July 1933, when George Spicer and his wife saw ‘a most extraordinary form of animal’ cross the road in front of their car.They described the creature as having a large body (about 4 feet (1.2 m) high and 25 feet (7.6 m) long), and long, narrow neck, slightly thicker than an elephant’s trunk and as long as the 10–12-foot (3–4 m) width of the road; the neck had undulations in it. They saw no limbs, possibly because of a dip in the road obscuring the animal’s lower portion.It lurched across the road towards the loch 20 yards (20 m) away, leaving only a trail of broken undergrowth in its wake.
In August 1933 a motorcyclist named Arthur Grant claimed to have nearly hit the creature while approaching Abriachan on the north-eastern shore, at about 1 a.m. on a moonlit night. Grant claimed that he saw a small head attached to a long neck, and that the creature saw him and crossed the road back into the loch. A veterinary student, he described it as a hybrid between a seal and a plesiosaur. Grant said he dismounted and followed it to the loch, but only saw ripples.Some believe this story was intended as a humorous explanation of a motorcycle accident.
Sightings of the monster increased following the building of a road along the loch in early 1933, bringing both workmen and tourists to the formerly isolated area Sporadic land sightings continued until 1963, when film of the creature was shot in the loch from a distance of 4 kilometres. Because of the distance at which it was shot, it has been described as poor quality.
Chief Constable William Fraser (1938)
In 1938, Inverness Shire Chief Constable William Fraser wrote a letter stating that it was beyond doubt the monster existed. His letter expressed concern regarding a hunting party that had arrived armed with a specially-made harpoon gun and were determined to catch the monster “dead or alive”. He believed his power to protect the monster from the hunters was “very doubtful”. The letter was released by the National Archives of Scotland on 27 April 2010.
C. B. Farrel (1943)
In May 1943, C. B. Farrel of the Royal Observer Corps was supposedly distracted from his duties by a Nessie sighting. He claimed to have been about 250 yards (230 m) away from a large-eyed, ‘finned’ creature, which had a 20-to-30-foot (6 to 9 m) long body, and a neck that protruded about 4–5 feet (1.2–1.5 m) out of the water.
Sonar contact (1954)
In December 1954 a strange sonar contact was made by the fishing boat Rival III. The vessel’s crew observed sonar readings of a large object keeping pace with the boat at a depth of 480 feet (146 m). It was detected travelling for half a mile (800 m) in this manner, before contact was lost, but then found again later.Many sonar attempts had been made previously, but most were either inconclusive or negative.
Sonar image (2011)
On 24 August 2011, Marcus Atkinson, a local Loch Ness boat skipper, photographed a sonar image of a long 5 ft wide unidentified object which was apparently following his boat for two minutes at a depth of 75 ft. Atkinson ruled out the possibility of any small fish or seal being what he believed to be the Loch Ness Monster. In April 2012, a scientist from the National Oceanography Centre said that this image is a bloom of algae and zooplankton.However, Roland Watson, a cryptozoologist and Loch Ness Monster researcher, has criticized this analysis, stating that the object in the image is very unlikely to be a bloom of algae and zooplankton, since algae needs sunlight to grow, and the waters of Loch Ness are very dark, and nearly devoid of sunlight, 75 feet down.
George Edwards’ photograph (2011)
On 3 August 2012, skipper George Edwards published a photograph he claims to be “The most convincing Nessie photograph ever”, which he claimed to have taken on 2 November 2011. Edwards’ photograph consists in a hump out of the water which, according to him, remained so for five to ten minutes. The Daily Mail reports that Edward had the photograph independently verified by specialists such as a Loch Ness Monster sighting devotee and a group of US military monster experts. Edwards spends 60 hours per week on the loch aboard his boat, Nessie Hunter IV, in which he takes tourists for a ride on the lake, and claims to have searched for the Loch Ness monster for 26 years.Said Edwards, “In my opinion, it probably looks kind of like a manatee, but not a mammal. When people see three humps, they’re probably just seeing three separate monsters.”
However, other researchers of the Loch Ness phenomena have questioned the authenticity of the photograph. A subsequent investigation by Loch Ness researcher, Steve Feltham, suggests that the object in the water is in fact a fibreglass hump used previously in a National Geographic documentary which Edwards had participated in. Researcher Dick Raynor has also questioned Edward’s claims about finding a deeper bottom to Loch Ness, which he refers to as “Edwards Deep”. He also found inconsistencies between Edwards’ claims of the location and conditions of the photograph and the actual location and weather conditions of that day. Additionally, Raynor also stated that Edwards had previously told him he had faked a photograph in 1986, which he had promoted as genuine in the National Geographic documentary.
Motivated by the early 1930s media reports, Holiday would dedicate the rest of his life to investigating the Loch Ness monster. In the 1960s, Holiday became a member of the Loch Ness Investigation Bureau. After several hundred hours of watching the Loch, Holiday claims that he reported four unidentified sightings. In his 1968 book, The Great Orm of Loch Ness, Holiday postulated that the creature in the Loch was an invertebrate creature similar in form to the extinct Tullimonstrum gregarium, but vastly larger.
Holiday also claimed that he noticed several unusual coincidences, including camera malfunction during certain Nessie sightings. For example, in August 1968, even though there were several witnesses along the shore, “Nessie” chose to appear in one of the very few places that were obscured from the various cameras. Holiday reported, “The observers were watchful and keen but they had seen nothing. The phenomenon had concealed itself so there was nothing for them to see.”
By 1972, Holiday modified his initial hypothesis that the Loch Ness monster was a literal physical animal. In his second book, The Dragon and the Disc, Holiday postulates that there are certain commonalities between paranormal phenomena and certain reported sightings on the Loch. Holiday also believed that there is a relationship between ancient dragon legends and contemporary UFO phenomena. Though he maintained in the book that he still believed that the monster was an invertebrate animal, there was a paranormal aspect to it reminiscent of ancient Water Horse legends which he could not fully explain.
His final work, The Goblin Universe, was published posthumously and includes an introduction by Colin Wilson.
So that’s Nessie… difficult subject to investigate because of hoaxed photographs, videos, computer graphics etc. That’s why I didn’t post them here. You can check them up and make your own conclusions. I think that major part of The Nessie legend is based on tourism and making money. If you want my wildest guess about it… it could be a hologram to fright people, maybe there is a military base somewhere they want to protect… gotcha 😆 Stay tuned for more CREATURES FROM BEYOND!
Next creature is called The Jersey Devil. This hideous monster has several sightings and here is the description:
The Jersey Devil is a legendary creature or cryptid said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey, United States. The creature is often described as a flying biped with hooves, but there are many different variations. The most common description is that of a kangaroo-like creature with the head of a goat, leathery bat-like wings, horns, small arms with clawed hands, cloven hooves and a forked tail. It has been reported to move quickly and often is described as emitting a “blood-curdling scream.”
There are many possible origins of the Jersey Devil legend. The earliest legends date back to Native American folklore. The Lenni Lenape tribes called the area around Pine Barrens “Popuessing”, meaning “place of the dragon”.Swedish explorers later named it “Drake Kill”, “drake” being a Swedish word for dragon, and “kil” meaning channel or arm of the sea (river, stream, etc.)
The most accepted origin of the story, as far as New Jerseyans are concerned, started with Mother Leeds and is as follows:
“It was said that Mother Leeds had 12 children and, after finding she was pregnant for the 13th time, stated that this one would be the Devil. In 1735, Mother Leeds was in labor on a stormy night. Gathered around her were her friends. Mother Leeds was supposedly a witch and the child’s father was the Devil himself. The child was born normal, but then changed form. It changed from a normal baby to a creature with hooves, a goat’s head, bat wings and a forked tail. It growled and screamed, then killed the midwife before flying up the chimney. It circled the villages and headed toward the pines. In 1740 a clergy exorcised the demon for 100 years and it wasn’t seen again until 1890.”
“Mother Leeds” has been identified by some as Deborah Leeds.This identification may have gained credence from the fact that Deborah Leeds’ husband, Japhet Leeds, named twelve children in the will he wrote in 1736,which is compatible with the legend of the Jersey Devil being the thirteenth child born by Mother Leeds. Deborah and Japhet Leeds also lived in the Leeds Point section of what is now Atlantic County, New Jersey,which is the area commonly said to be the location of the Jersey Devil story.
There have been many sightings and occurrences allegedly involving the Jersey Devil.
According to legend, while visiting the Hanover Mill Works to inspect his cannonballs being forged, Commodore Stephen Decatur sighted a flying creature flapping its wings and fired a cannonball directly upon it to no effect.
Joseph Bonaparte, eldest brother of Emperor Napoleon, is also said to have witnessed the Jersey Devil while hunting on his Bordentown estate around hi 1820. In 1840, the devil was blamed for several livestock killings. Similar attacks were reported in 1841, accompanied by tracks and screams.
Claims of a corpse matching the Leeds Devil’s description arose in Greenwich in December 1925. A local farmer shot an unidentified animal as it attempted to steal his chickens. Afterward, he claimed that none of 100 people he showed it to could identify it.On July 27, 1937 an unknown animal “with red eyes” seen by residents of Downingtown, Pennsylvania was compared to the Jersey Devil by a reporter for the Pennsylvania Bulletin.In 1951, a group of Gibbstown, New Jersey boys claimed to have seen a ‘monster’ matching the Devil’s description.and claims of a corpse matching the Jersey Devil’s description arose in 1957. In 1960, tracks and noises heard near Mays Landing were claimed to be from the Jersey Devil.During the same year the merchants around Camden offered a $10,000 reward for the capture of the Jersey Devil, even offering to build a private zoo to house the creature if captured.
Sightings of 1909
During the week of January 16 through 23, 1909, newspapers of the time published hundreds of claimed encounters with the Jersey Devil from all over the state. Among alleged encounters publicized that week were claims the creature “attacked” a trolley car in Haddon Heights and a social club in Camden.Police in Camden and Bristol, Pennsylvania supposedly fired on the creature to no effect.Other reports initially concerned unidentified footprints in the snow, but soon sightings of creatures resembling the Jersey Devil were being reported throughout South Jersey and as far away as Delaware.The widespread newspaper coverage led to a panic throughout the Delaware Valley prompting a number of schools to close and workers to stay home. During this period, it is rumored that the Philadelphia Zoo posted a $10,000 reward for the creature’s capture. The offer prompted a variety of hoaxes, including a kangaroo with artificial wings.
Skeptics believe the Jersey Devil to be nothing more than a creative manifestation of the English settlers, Bogeyman stories created and told by bored Pine Barren residents as a form of children’s entertainment, and rumors arising from negative perceptions of the local population (“pineys“). According to Brian Dunning of Skeptoid, folk tales of the Jersey Devil prior to 1909 calling it the “Leeds Devil” may have been created to discredit local politician Daniel Leeds who served as deputy to the colonial governor of New York and New Jersey in the 1700s.Folklorist Jan Harold Brunvand wrote that the spread of contemporary pop culture has overtaken traditional Jersey Devil legends.Jeff Brunner of the Humane Society of New Jersey thinks the Sandhill Crane is the basis of the Jersey Devil stories, adding, “There are no photographs, no bones, no hard evidence whatsoever, and worst of all, no explanation of its origins that doesn’t require belief in the supernatural.”Outdoorsman and author Tom Brown, Jr. spent several seasons living in the wilderness of the Pine Barrens. He recounts occasions when terrified hikers mistook him for the Jersey Devil, after he covered his whole body with mud to repel mosquitoes.
One New Jersey group called the “Devil Hunters” refer to themselves as “official researchers of the Jersey Devil”, and devote time to collecting reports, visiting historic sites, and going on nocturnal hunts in the Pine Barrens in order to “find proof that the Jersey Devil does in fact exist.
Here is the History Channel documentary about The Jersey Devil and the sightings:
Here’s the video where paranormal investigation team has some footage of this creature:
The Jersey Devil Has Been Seen In Southern New Jersey And Eastern Pennsylvania In The Pine Barrens Or Pinelands For Over 300 Years. Even Now Going On To The Current Times Of Today. Yet It Has Never Been Caught On Video, Filmed, Or Even Photographed.
Until This Paranormal Team Caught The First Footage Of The Jersey Devil. It Looks Like The Same Thing People Have Been Claiming To See Since The 1700’s. Watch The Whole Thing. It’s Very Informative And Educational. You Might Get Something Out Of Watching This.
You can call this another urban legend, but are all these people insane who have seen The Jersey Devil? It’s up to you make up your own conclusions. I just bring these cases for you… and remember there will be more CREATURES FROM BEYOND!
Maybe you have watched the movie trilogy called Men In Black and thought that what a cool series, but what if they are real? There have been hundreds or maybe thousands of cases where people have reported these Men In Black who interrogate them when they have seen something paranormal or an UFO.
First some description and then the cases:
Men in Black (MIB), in American popular culture and in UFO conspiracy theories, are men dressed in black suits who claim to be government agents who harass or threaten UFO witnesses to keep them quiet about what they have seen. It is sometimes implied that they may be aliens themselves. The term is also frequently used to describe mysterious men working for unknown organizations, as well as various branches of government allegedly designed to protect secrets or perform other strange activities. The term is generic, used for any unusual, threatening or strangely behaved individual whose appearance on the scene can be linked in some fashion with a UFO sighting.
According to the accounts of those encountering them, Men in Black always seem to have detailed information on the persons they contact, as if the individuals had been under surveillance for a significant period of time. They have occasionally been described as seeming confused by the nature of everyday items such as pens, eating utensils or food, as well as using outdated slang, old cars or vintage styles of clothing. Reports indicate that they often claim to be from an agency collecting information on the unexplained phenomenon their subject has encountered. In other accounts, they seem to be trying to suppress information by trying to convince their target that the event in question did not happen. They have been described as behaving in either an exceedingly furtive manner or a completely outgoing one, with wide grins and disconcerting giggles.This observation might suggest that the “gigglers” were possibly, though not necessarily, pranksters, as various forms of unexpected, inappropriate, or even bizarre (as in robotic) behavior seem to be hallmarks of these mysterious beings.
Although the phenomenon was initially and most frequently reported in the 1950s and 1960s, some researchers – John Keel and others – have suggested similarities between Men in Black reports and earlier demonic accounts. Keel suggests that MiBs are a modern-day manifestation of the same phenomena that were earlier interpreted as the devil or encounters with fairies. Similarly, folklorist Peter Rojcewicznoted that many Men in Black accounts parallel tales of people encountering the devil: neither Men in Black nor the devil are quite human, and witnesses often discover this fact midway through an encounter. The meaning of this parallel, however, has been the subject of debate. Even so, the term “the black man” was used for centuries in reference to the Devil,up until contemporary times when “black man” was used to replace the term “Negro” and the satanic sense was lost. A telling example may be found in an 1837 report in The Morning Chronicle. A certain John Henning, charged with running away with a chest of tea, defended himself with the claim that “he was ordered to carry it by a gentleman in black” who told him to carry it to Petticoat-lane.
“The LORD MAYOR: Pray what sort of gentleman was he? – Prisoner: I can’t just tell, please you, my lord; I only know he was in black. The LORD MAYOR: I am afraid it was the gentleman in black that directed you in this matter. Had he a tail? – Prisoner: A tail! A pig-tail, do you mean, please you, my lord? No, I can’t say as he had. The LORD MAYOR: Did you look at his feet? What sort were they? – like a cow’s [a laugh]?“
In witchcraft trials “The Black Man” was often reported as meeting with the accused and having sexual intercourse with them. In Washington Irving‘s story “The Devil and Tom Walker” set in 1727, Irving tells how Tom asks “the black man” who he is. The man says he goes by many names and is called the black miner sometimes or the black woodsman. He says that since the Indians are gone, he presides over the persecutions of various religious sects, supports slave dealers and is the master of the Salem witches. Tom replies that he must be “Old Scratch“, which is another name for the devil, and the black man acknowledges that he is Old Scratch. In 1932, H. P. Lovecraft also used the figure of The Black Man in his tale “The Dreams in the Witch-House” as a synonym for the Devil, but he also uses the term and description for Nyarlathotep, a malevolent entity of his own creation. In the Middle Ages the Black Man was not a man with African features, but rather a man colored black and dressed in black.
Most recent sightings that I have seen is this video where two men in black walks in a lobby. Of cource this is easy hoax, but something tells me that this might be a real case:
The original source of this video is from the Aerial Phenomen Investigations Team in MD. For complete details about this incident contact Antonio Paris from API. Quote from video source: “I work with the Aerial Phenomenon Investigations Team based in MD. One recent UFO investigation yielded actual footage of MIB on a hotel lobby camera. This video has a voice over of the person these MIB came for”. -M. Barnharrt
Here is a case from History channel’s UFO hunters:
This is a clip from the television show UFO Hunters. For the first time ever, the legendary Men in Black were caught on film, proving they are not a myth. This lends credence to all the eyewitness reports about the Men in Black harassing UFO eyewitnesses.
Here is the “Stuff they don’t want you to know” episode of Men In Black:
Then there is a full russian documentary about these Men In Black:
I have dealt with Dan Burisch case before, but he knows about these Men In Black too:
MIBs: The Men in Black
Kerry Cassidy: OK, so tell us about…Dan Burisch
Dan Burisch: Sure, OK. Well, the Men in Black.
K: …about the Men in Black. Yeah.
D: Part of it is a psychological operation you have within Majestic and that they operate to scare people away from things that they’ve seen, that they don’t want them, you know, further bringing information out in the population. The so-called “people factor.” Anything about that, they attempt, or have attempted… I don’t even know that they’re still in operation… to suppress. Then you have the real McCoy. The real McCoy is not human. The real McCoy is in fact a P-45 J-Rod. They’re using, through the use of some sort of sinuous biomechanical technology, the skin of a dead human.
D: The skin of a dead human. These are the ones that walk up to you and they look like they’re shuffling like they’ve just filled their drawers. When they speak through this technology that they are wrapping around them, they sound very bland, very monotone. And they don’t belong. You tell very quickly that they don’t belong.
K: Have you met one?
D: I’ve met several of them. They were operating around my work at Sunchase before we were moved to a different location. I can say they’re very “sallow” in appearance. They thought that it was an appropriate expression to sing me “Happy Birthday” one year over at, ah, I think it was at the start of 2003. It was either ‘03 or ‘04 …‘03 I think it was. Yeah…. and I did not like being around them. And they will not think twice of using force on you. They will hit you. They will push you. One did me.
Marcia, not that long ago, got her fill of both types, both the psychological operations people who attempted, a few years ago, to scare her off over at Winchester Park – these were… those were human beings. They were just striking fear in her – and one actual real McCoy… MIB. And this thing… I actually saw it first. It wandered on to… they get confused easily. And that’s a good thing… wandered on to our property at where we’re presently living. And I was walking home from her apartment at the time and I thought a child was swinging on the swingset. There’s a swingset out in front of my apartment. The closer I got, I thought that it was a little older kid wearing black. Then I noticed it had a hat on. And he said, “Swing! Fun!” He was lost in a memory, apparently, of the person that he was wearing. And I looked at him and I got very afraid inside because they carry weapons. They can be killed with weapons too. They were not supposed to be on our property. Our Security did not do its real job. We’re not worried about the real two-legged real humans that just walk around. It’s MIB 1these things…
K: So he was the size of a child? Is that what you’re saying?
D: No, he was… He… I thought it was a child on the swingset as I was walking. It was past dusk. It was dark out there.
K: So he was a normal size.
D: He was a normal size.
K: Full grown person.
MIB 3D: Yep. And wearing all black. And he had a black preacher’s type hat. Round brimmed…
K: How do you get rid of him?
D: Well… how do you get rid of him?
D: Well, it would be very good if a person could actually… I’d better be careful suggesting that…
Marci: Uh huh.
D: …‘cause they are still human beings. They took him into… Security ultimately took him into custody. I just want to be careful liability-wise of making the suggestion about how to get rid of one of them. But…
Marci: People could miscue and we wouldn’t want to have problems.
D: No. Saying, “Well, you know, Dr. Burisch said do this or that.” There shouldn’t be that many walking around. Don’t worry about it.
But it… it wasn’t even sent there to deal with me. It was sent there to deal with her [pointing toward Marci]. And it found itself apparently lost in a memory in the swingset. And I said, “Good! Swing! Good.” Instead of going [makes disgusted face]. Walked in, keyed the door to my apartment, pressed the emergency button for Security, hoping that they were going to respond. Went in and told my mother-in-law what was going on. She looked out of the window and said, “Yep.” She’s been in a Majestic family all her life, and she said, “Yep.” Then the oldest got up and looked out the window and I said, “That’s what one looks like.” It was her first experience seeing one. Yeah.
D: And I said, “Doris, go over here.” And I unlocked something and I pulled something out for her and I said, “While I leave here, because I’m going to do the hurt bird routine and lead it away,” (because we had three kids). I said, “I don’t know what its intention is. It may have a lethal intention here and it’s just presently lost. Soon as it gets done swinging, it may pull a weapon out.” And I said, “So if it comes near here, defend yourself and the kids. Meanwhile I’m gonna grab something else,” and I grabbed a weapon, “and I’m gonna try to lead it away.” By the time I had the second weapon out and was armed, it was walking off already, toward her [points at Marci, laughs] apartment’s direction.
So I said, “OK. Well, I still have to get it in case it turns around because if it knows where I went into the apartment, I have to lead it away because there are kids in here. There are little girls in here.” Yep. And so I walked toward it, past it [laughs], walked clear by it, and it just continued shuffling ahead slowly up the sidewalk, gradually toward her apartment.
I got over to her apartment and I said, “Where the hell is Security?” She was pushing buttons over there and nobody had responded. Got on the radio. Nobody responds. I said, “You have an MIB walking toward your apartment right now.” She said, “An MIB?” I said, “Indeed.” I said, “They are dangerous, as you are well aware.” But it was her first experience with something like this. I said, “Come here and look. It can’t possibly…”… and I wanted to make sure it wasn’t walking back toward my apartment where the girls were. I said, “It can’t possibly have reached here by now.” [laughs] I mean, it’s walking slowly. And so she came out with me and she went over by the wall behind a bush and she didn’t see it initially. It was hidden like in the recesses of a light, as it was walking up in one of the shadowed areas. Because now the lights had kicked on on the exterior of the building and all that. And I walked up on to the sidewalk and saw it, and I turned my back on it at that point. They don’t run. So I turned my back on it and said, “You may watch me going that [points in illustration] way,” to Marci. And she said, ‘cause she’s not a faint-of-heart female, “Why?” And then she saw it over my shoulder and got her first .. . laid her first eyes on an ET. And her eyes got about that big [gesturing], which is a normal reaction. And she walked. [looks at Marci and says, “Giving you some credit.”] She actually walked from there back toward the corner of the building, before I saw her break into something more than a walk. She walked away from him.
By then, I’m still standing there and this thing walked by me. Now I’m wondering what… why it’s here, and I said, “Hi.” And it turned this close to me [gestures at arm length] and said, “Hello,” and then it just continued to walk [gestures away]. Walked right past me like I wasn’t even there, toward her. I thought, “Well, OK, it has an assignment. We don’t know what the assignment is.” Because it will not give up its intention behaviorally before it carries out its assignment. And I wasn’t sure if it was armed or what. So I walked by it again. [laughs] This is how slowly it was shuffling. It walked like it had poop in its pants. I mean that’s how he did… I mean, they are clearly not comfortable in the skin.
I walked by it again. Now I had made certain adjustments to the firearm I had on me because I was figuring that whatever was gonna happen, it was gonna happen fairly soon. And if it pulled a weapon out, I was going to do what I learned in the police department and do it well. For propabation.
Got back to her. Got all the way into her apartment. Locked the door. And I said, “Go get your gun.” She pulled the weapon out. “You’ve been a former cop, too. Do what you do. Do it well.” By that time we were both shaking, figuring, you know, it was gonna turn into something very bad.
It sat down on a stairway outside of her apartment and… it had a bag with it. It was a black bag of some sort, and I didn’t know what was in it. It could have been anything. It just sat there, and then it got up, and it walked past her apartment. And now I’m looking at her like, “What the hell is this?” Still no Security. Finally, after it had made its way all the way to the basketball court area… and it stood there and looked around, still confused… Security came up with its weapons [models sighting along rifle] drawn, and took it into custody. Put it in one of the vans and off it went. They cuffed it, you know, like a human being would be cuffed and they took it.
She got a couple photographs off. We actually, because it walked out toward the court… I was looking through the window and said, “Well there’s no way it could get us from here even if it does have a gun on it or whatever.” She stepped out on to her porch and she took a couple photographs with a… [queries Marci] It was a disposable?
Marc: I found a disposable camera that was up on the bookshelf near the door. And I just grabbed it and that’s all I had in my hands.
D: She took a couple photographs of it and we have since made those public on the Eagles Disobey forum. Those are real, the real McCoy. The best I could do enhancements that show, one after another, with it… bringing it out from the background. Those were the best enhancements I could do because the original photograph that we put up there, too, if you saw it, I mean, it was basically jet black. There is no carrying of the flash and it was not set for, you know, night speed or anything like that. It was an indoor/outdoor type daytime camera, a disposable camera. But it was all that was available. Now, Security took photographs and all that but they don’t share ‘em.
D: At the same time I was doing my weekly reports and I detailed it in my weekly report and I allowed that weekly report to be made available through the website. I said the MIB was taken into custody and no one was injured. But, yeah, he just walked on to our property, assignment still to this day unknown.
Dismissed from Majestic
D: Well, following 20 years of service for the Majestic, last October the 12th, which was October 12, 2005, I was dismissed at the time of their adjournment, to complete a final set of orders, if you will, to present the information which I have learned over the last twenty years concerning the extraterrestrial intelligences to the world or to whomever wanted to hear. For the last year’s time we have been committed to a debriefing of my service since 1986 and even actually before that. We’ve ranged into speaking about my early life as well. We’re hoping that within a short period of time, the DVDs will be completed and this will be presented. And this will then conclude my service to Majestic, with a very big relief and “Thank God!”
Right now we are presently in the middle of several different projects, inclusive of which is Project Lotus, which has basically been dispatched and dismissed to me after the years of service as well. This project…
K: Do you mean it was turned over to you?
D: Well, it’s been turned over. I don’t think that the folks from the former Majestic are continuing the research at all. I really don’t think that they want anything to do with it after the problems that we’ve had and the associated problems at a couple different facilities involving, we’ll say, extraneous energy emissions around the project that caused some damage to their equipment.
Extraneous Energy Emissions
K: To back up a tiny bit, could you tell us what is Project Lotus?
D: Sure. In May of 2001 we traveled to Frenchman Mountain here in Nevada to begin a real project looking for a bio-marker, for a possible precursor virus. It was a rather prosaic study, looking for evidence of panspermia. During the course of that initial investigation we came across some anomalous activity in some of our data sets. That anomalous activity was ultimately tracked down to very unusual electromagnetic activity associated with silicon oxides. And we have since tracked that anomalous activity to any silicon oxides present in minerals… to wit, the activity is the presence of an emission of electromagnetic bundles containing information. We are presently attempting to further define the nature of that electromagnetic anomalous activity. But we have in fact determined that the activity is associated with cells within the terrestrial environment… and that they have effects upon cells in our terrestrial environment, up to and including modifying the genetic material of extant cells in our environment.
K: Are you saying living cells?
K: Uh huh.
D: We have, together with these electromagnetic emissions, that we have defined with relative precision to date, to be specific varieties of what we termed as particles. We had to call them something. They’re bundles of electromagnetic material, confined discrete bundles, that we believe are possibly related to… as far back as the ancient Pavitrakas of the Hindus… subtle matter particles, which could be imparted into our environment and effect changes. Thus far, we have not observed negative changes, meaning, the effects of these subtle matter particles, if you will, have not affected our environment negatively.
K: But you have had interruptions as the result of these particles being …
D: We’ve had…
K: Anomalous activities.
D: We’ve had anomalous thermal emissions when too much or too little energy was imparted to the silicon oxide-bearing material. We have had unusual drains of batteries around the activity. And we have not defined why. But, there have been two phenomena associated with Lotus that have been particularly striking to me as a biologist. We’ve had re-sets of cells which have occurred. And I say “re-sets” because I’m trying not to make it sound Frankenstein-like… where there have been heat-fixed yeast cells which have been used as, ah… offered, if you will, to this phenomena as target cells. And upon the receipt of material of these dead, heat-fixed yeast cells, we’ve had a re-start of the cells and we have the photographic and the….
K: So they’ve come back to life, is what you’re saying, as a result of this…
D: There has been a…
D: Yes. I really don’t even like using those terms. It’s out of the book, off the edge of the pizza, so to speak. But we have had a re-start of the cells in that location. However, the cells which have restarted from the dead cells are not the same cells, are not the same function, functioning, cells as the precursor cells, the precursor yeast cells. We don’t really know what they are.
K: You mean… are you saying that the cells changed and are functioning differently after being exposed to this energy?
D: Yes. We started out with a, essentially a fungal cell, a budding yeast cell which we heat-fixed, and the result was more termed what one would normally term an animal-like cell.
K: Really? So it…
K: …actually changed it from one thing… it actually transformed it from one thing into another.
D: It transformed it from one thing to another, after imparting to it what we’ve come to call a template. There is an…
K: Is this…
D: …actual imparting of DNA…
D: …to the cell. So, we’re receiving DNA essentially across some sort of an electromagnetic barrier, through these… what we call portals, these emissions of electromagnetic energy that then impart further discrete bundles of electromagnetism to our environment.
K: So is…
D: We’re attempting to understand it. We don’t understand what we are truly looking at at the moment. We’ve not truly defined the Lotus as a system.
K: OK. But are the particles, are these the Ganesh particles that are coming through?
D: [nods head yes] We think that we defined three basic discrete varieties of particles that we have termed, Alpha, Beta, and C-type particles. The A-type particles were nicknamed “Ganesh” particles, and that’s what they are. They’re nicknames. We had to call them something, so we called them “Ganesh particles,” out of historical deference, if you will, for the Mover of Obstacles.
And we called the portals, “Shiva Portals,” as an opening or a changing. These are the admission, or emission, centers, if you will, for these Ganesh particles.
And then we have still another variety of particle which we call “Selkies.” And Marcia actually named them. These are C-type particles, and they basically act as almost like crossing guards which line the periphery of an electromagnetic stream that leaves these portals, and basically act as guards or guideways surrounding the Ganesh particles, giving them a pathway to a target. Now the real question, I think, is: How is the decision being made for a target? And we’ve identified on the Selkies what appear to be acoustic antennae. And I say appear to be acoustic antennae, because changes of input into this system, acoustic changes, affect the behavior of the Selkie particles.
K: Sound. In other words…
K: …sound is affecting the Selkie particles, causing them to redirect the energy, toward the target or away from the target?
Portals = Micro-Wormholes?
D: Causing them to redirect their positions which confine an electromagnetic stream, or a river if you will, being emitted from these portals. And you know, we’ve wondered what the portals are. They might be micro-wormholes.
K: I see.
D: We don’t know right now.
K: And these are nano-sized portals?
D: No. These are microscopic sized. Somewhere within the 20 to… well it would be very transient up to 50… but around the 10 to 20 micron size, micrometer size. And so they’re observable quite readily under a compound microscope if the conditions are held constant and if they are treated delicately. They’re extremely transient phenomena.
K: In other words, you don’t have control over them.
D: No. No. And in fact, we don’t do any direct propagations anymore. The last direct propagation was done last November and we received, for the second time, an anomalous growth of cells in the medium surrounding the crystal that we were using. We were using a quartz crystal, because of the silicon oxide nature of quartz crystal. And we received an anomalous growth of cells of unknown origin around the crystal, so we do not know where these cells were from. We’ve had that happen now twice and we’ve determined that we’re getting a little too good, if you will, at the science of propagating these portals and we’re possibly receiving a negative consequence as a result.
K: In other words, those could actually be an alien life-form.
D: Indeed they could be…
K: Very interesting.
D: …they could be extraterrestrial. The cells…
K: Cells. I mean, they’re microscopic, right?
D: Right. You know, we’ve received a mix of very unusual cells which we are not… I was not able to cytologically type. And also cells which appeared nearly prosaic to our ocean here microscopic one-celled organisms – haptophytes.
K: But they came out of nowhere.
D: The material that we had provided to the experiment prohibited a cross-contamination, the ability for this to have been a cross-contamination. So they came from somewhere. They came from somewhere.
Now, also, what we’ve done is a repeat of a very famous experiment called the Spallanzani experiment with beef broth, but we put a tweak on it, if you will. The Spallanzani experiments were experiments designed to either prove or disprove the idea of spontaneous generation. And so the question is then begged: Are we exhibiting spontaneous generation here? And I think that we have zero evidence that this is spontaneous generation. And allow me to explain why.
The Spallanzani experiment that we repeated… we did it exactly the way the famous experiment was originally done… with beef broth that had been boiled, but we actually had it autoclaved so that we had pressure and heat both acting on it, getting rid of all the spore-formers, everything that could have been present in there as a living organism. We left some open, some closed, and then we did a closed and an open experiment where we applied electricity and a silicon oxide-bearing crystal to it. And in the case where we had the closed study done, we received the growth of cells in that closed study which appeared, to me to be neural cells, and organized neural cells, to the point where we could actually tell morphologically that there was an A-B-A-B pattern which was developing. I wouldn’t say that I was in a panic, but [glances right]… Marcia is nodding her head rapidly, off the camera.
D: I was in a near panic to cease the study then and there so that we weren’t accidentally producing something with sentience.
D: Not my right. That would have been an abomination of some variety. I don’t practice, the tools of science devoid of moral considerations. Some, nowadays, I think, have no problem, no compunction against that. I do. So the study was ceased immediately and the cells were photographed. Yes, we have the photographs of them. But the study was ceased and it was killed immediately.
K: OK. Well, this is really kind of earth-shaking information that you’ve got here, and…
D: [nods head yes] Uh huh. Very humbling.
K: …I’m getting it in a way that I understand that makes it very clear.
K: Thank you, Dan. That was quite… quite enlightening.
Ok I think that there is something to grasp on about Men In Black. Like other creatures there is a lots of information in the Net and you just have to look for it and make up your own conclusions. I think that there is truth about Men In Black cases, because there is so many of them and the people stick with their stories. Finally, I have watched the Men In Black movie trilogy and it was pretty entertaining, but what made an impression to me was the part III’s soundtrack. I think it is awesome. It reminded me from John Carpenter’s In The Mouth Of Madness soundtrack, which is also awesome:
And remember… STAY TUNED FOR MORE CREATURES FROM BEYOND!
