You’ve heard of Bigfoot.

You’ve heard of ancient giants the Bible calls “Nephilim.”

And you’ve heard of pranksters who sometime manufacture evidence of all kinds of things.

But the Sina news agency in China has published some photos of some really big human-looking footprints in bedrock reportedly taken last month by photographers in the southwestern province of Guizhou in a village called Pingyan.

The footprints are reportedly 22.5 inches long and 8 inches wide.

They’re hardly the only such giant footprints discovered around the world – prompting much speculation that giant humanoids once roamed the planet – interestingly, just as the Bible mentions in Genesis 6:4, Numbers 13:33, Deuteronomy 2:11, 2:20, 3:11, 3:13 and Joshua 12:4, 13:12, 17:15.

On August 24, a group of photographers detected a set of giant human footprints in the rock located in Pingyan village, local media reported. One of the footprints, which may date back to ancient times, is in the shape of a left foot that is 57 centimeters long, 20 centimeters wide and 3 centimeters deep.

Similar fossils have been found in Africa, the Americas and Europe. There have been some discredited, but others have scientific inquiries baffled.

Recently, WND explored a report of a living giant allegedly discovered by U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.

Known as “the giant of Kandahar,” it reportedly killed several soldiers before being done in by U.S. Special Forces. One eyewitness claims to have seen the corpse flown off in a military plane for examination in the states.
