7.11 – THE VANISHINGS (4.24.15)

LOST TRIBE OF GIANTS [12c]

The southeast Pacific Ocean. Rapa Nui, or Easter Island, as it has become known, is one of the most remote places on the planet. The nearest inhabited island is 1,100 miles to the west, and its nearest continental country, Chile, is over 2,000 miles away. Scattered around the perimeter of the island, most with their backs to the sea, stand nearly 300 massive stone figures known as the Moai. Most are between 15 to 20 feet tall, but the tallest stands over 70 feet and the heaviest weighs up to 165 tons.

“Why did these people go to such great effort to build these giant statues? No one else in Polynesia was doing that. When you talk to the people of Easter Island today, the Rapa Nui people, they say that they were doing them to honor certain important ancestral ariki, or rulers. These Moais are images of great ancestors.”

– Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Ctr.)

Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists have suggested that the Moai may have been erected by a lost race of giants that once inhabited the island. Interestingly, C.F. Behrens, a member of the Dutch expedition team that first discovered the island in 1722, described some of the priestly class of inhabitants as Goliaths.

“C.F. Behrens reported that he saw giant people, that someone had rode up to their boat that was some 15-foot tall. He really made a big deal of these giants on the island.”

– Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Ctr.)

“When the first explorers landed on Easter Island, what they found was that there were two types of people there. There were the Short Ears and the Long Ears. And the Long Ears were often described as giants, and they were a different race from the Short Ears. Presumably, they had these very, very long ears and earlobes. And they were the priestly caste. They were directing the creation and the movement of these statues around the island.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Vimana: Flying Machines of the Ancients)

“They were said to be so tall that each of the crew could walk under the legs of these giants. The sheer size of the megaliths on Easter Island do suggest they were made by giants. There were legends all around the world linked with megalithic sites which may give some clarity on who and how they actually built these sites.”

Hugh Newman (Author, Earth Grids)

Francis Maziere, a French ethnologist who conducted research on the island in 1963, recorded local legends that the first men to live on the island were of very large stature.

“In his book, The Mysteries of Easter Island, Francis Maziere talks about that the first islanders of Easter Island allegedly were these tall, giant people.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“There were inhabitants there that were eight to ten, maybe even 12 feet high. And what do you automatically think of? Genesis in the Bible talks about how something that was nonhuman, perhaps angelic, perhaps extraterrestrial, saw the fair maidens of humans, had intercourse, and from that came the hybrids known as the giants of old.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

Is it possible that the accounts of giants on Earth are in fact true, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest? Did the remnants of this lost race continue to exist on Easter Island? And if so, just what happened to these beings? Up to 15,000 people lived on Easter Island prior to its Western discovery. But only 52 years later, explorer James Cook described a sight of mass devastation, with nearly all of the Moai statues toppled over and only about 700 inhabitants left on the island and no mention of giants.

“Something seems to have happened at Easter Island that decreased the population seriously. And it seems that a number of people either died off, left, or something happened to them.”

– Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Ctr.)

Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists propose that evidence left at the site may point to a more intriguing theory regarding their disappearance. Archaeologists found unfinished Moai left at the quarry and tools scattered around, as if the work had been suddenly abandoned.

“We don’t know why they would have stopped this and even what happened exactly to the priestly castes of giants who was overseeing all of this work. Suddenly these people just vanished. All the work stopped.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Vimana: Flying Machines of the Ancients)

“The issue that keeps coming up about Easter Island: was this a genetic experiment where nonhumans would use islands, high mountains, peninsulas, so that would not be interference with or contamination of their experiments? Maybe that’s why they were transferred out.”

– Linda Moulton Howe
(Author / Investigative Journalist, Earthfiles)

Could it be that an entire tribe was physically removed from Earth shortly after their discovery on Easter Sunday? And if so, could mass disappearances be part of an extraterrestrial experiment on Earth? Perhaps evidence of such a connection can be found in the jungles of Central America, with a civilization that seems to have strategically abandoned all of their sacred sites and vanished without a trace.
