|Does Giants-put a frown on evolution?It would be signifiant?Im in this thread.This is my last post here.Im new and all that.But answer this honestly.No evidence or facts just the answer.If Giants exist I mean 10 to 30 feet tall is that a signifiant piece of facts for evolution?|
While "giants" between 10-30' in height have not been found (and are unlikely to; the musculature and skeleton required for a 30' tall biped would differ significantly, I think, from what we see in humans and other primates), we have found "hobbits." The existence of the "shire folk" didn't shake the Theory of Evolution - they're merely hypothesized to be our evolutionary cousins.
Now, if you find a Pegasus, or a Chimaera, we might have something that doesn;t fit with the ToE.

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers
“A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar world. But, on the other hand, in a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land. This divorce between man and his life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity.” – Albert Camus

outcome is merely a larger than average pile of shit." Barash, David 1995.
