Are Giants Like Goliath Real or Just a Myth? Check Out This 1913 News Article

A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. His height was six cubits and a span. (1 Samuel 17:4, NIV).

Some people think that the bible is a fake, because it talks about things that are hard to believe, like giants.

Our thanks to archaeologist Brien Forester for pointing this out in his Facebook page. In the Monday 22 December 1913 edition of the Honolulu Star Bulletin, there was an article about the discovery of three skeletons of giants, each of which was estimated to be over seven feet tall.
