Biased Opinion
I rely on Google, but being human I read stuff that confirms my bias...

I am predisposed to believe what the Bible says is true, anyway.

Here at EvC, many of our secular science minded friends may provide you with an answer more in line with critical thinking (and unbiased) as far as evidence goes.

Keep in mind that there is a lot of fake stuff on the internet. A phenomenon of our times is fake news passing as legitimate news. Always look in a wide variety of sources before deciding upon a definitive answer.

Re: No giants...
I guess Wilt Chamberlain doesn't count, though he did score 100 points in a game once
