5. Giant skeletons - found by French archaeologists now dismissed by today’s scientists.

Your theory is crazy, but it's not crazy enough to be true. - Niels Bohr


In 1868, parts of five skeletons were discovered in the rock shelter, located in the famous Dordogne Valley of France - they called them Cro-Magnon.  Recent research over the past 20 years or so, however, has led scholars to believe that the physical dimensions of so-called 'Cro-Magnon' are not sufficiently different enough from modern humans to warrant a separate designation.

However, the Cro-Magnon’s found under the rock shelter were over a foot taller, twice as strong, lived longer and had a brain capacity 15% greater than the people who found them, and this is why the Victorians saw them as a sub-species of man and named them accordingly.  They were the first to paint and play musical instruments.

Their size and statue allowed them to become the ‘megalithic stone builders’ of prehistory who used boats to travel throughout the known world and even the Greek philosopher Plato talked about them in his dialogues.

 So who were these ‘Cro-Magnons’ and for what political purpose have the anthropologists killed them off?
