Hey Aaron, I am on the quest of 1000 posts, guess I need to

start writing meaningless tidbits.

Hello brent michalycia,

I was reading where the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. might have a cache of ancient large bones of what may be from giants in North America. I was seriously thinking about sending off an email to them to see if it's true and whether or not they still have them. Waddaya think?

Hello hiflier,  Go for it! I doubt they'll roll over and give you any info but it's worth a try!

Hello AaronD,

Consider it done! It might just be one more stone turned over for our side, eh? I'll keep everyone in the loop.

Hello All,

Here is a copy of the email sent to the Smithsonian Institution:

"To Whom it may concern,

I belong to a small group of professional and private along with public

researchers. We have an sincere interest in the discovery and past collection of

large, apparently hominid bones at the Smithsonian Institute. We are following

up on these two articles:

"During the mid-20th century, archaeologists found seven feet tall skeletons in

royal burials at Ocmulgee National Monument and Etowah Mounds National Historic

Landmark. Both these town sites were ancestral to the Creek Indians, so the

stories of the Spanish are quite plausible. Creek men today, especially in

northern Alabama and Georgia, tend to be exceptionally tall."

And:

"During 1918, archaeologists working in the Lovelock Cave owned by a guano

mining operation discovered over 10,000 Neolithic artifacts. Many of the

artifacts such as stone tools and sandals seem too large to have been made by

standard sized humans. A man and women’s skeletons were retrieved in addition to

several detached human bones. The male was said to be eight feet tall.

Supposedly, most of the artifacts were lost in a fire, but the skulls are on

display at the Humboldt County Museum in Winnemucca, Nevada. There is no doubt

that the skull is Homo sapiens, but dwarfs contemporary Native American skulls.

According to archaeologist, Steve McNallen, the proportions of the skull

resemble the skull of Kennewick Man."

We are aware that there may be those at the Smithsonian Institute that will not

be able to provide any information as to whether or not any large North American

hominid artifacts reside at the Museum but we would like to know if any of your

staff would be interested in developing a group to investigate this possibility.

Qe think the endeavor to be worthwhile in light of the fact that there has been

information that some of these large skeletal artifacts were brought to the

Institute for safe keeping.

We certainly do hope that the finds have indeed been kept from harm and look

forward to your response on the matter. I would also be willing to work with a

curator on any and all investigations where possible. If a dialoge in person is

more convenient then I may be reached at xxx-xxx-xxxx"

Now we wait.............

Very well worded, hiflier--props to you! Yes, now we wait. Personally, I don't think we will get the answers we want, but it is worth a try.

I applaud your effort, hiflier.

 

But I'll be shocked if you even get a reply.

Hello All,

 

In this I'm certain I'll get a reply but it will most likely be a boilerplate response designed to diffuse the request. In otherwords, things like, Sorry, we don't have the funding for that kind of targeting...." etc, etc. So even though I think there will be a reply I also expect a refusal or denial in some form or another. Thanks for the kind words though. As I've said before, what's the harm in contacting a source, ANY source for the purposes of vetting data?

An idea:

 

1.  Ask the Smithsonian if they will allow access to their archives to qualified researchers with outside funding.

 

2.  Develop a list of qualified volunteers willing to search the Smithsonian archives for expenses only.

 

3.  Select a credentialed leader of the volunteer effort.

 

4.  Find willing contributors to fund a grant.

 

5.  Find a corporation willing to administer the grant for audit and tax purposes at their own cost.

 

Probably need to nail down the person in item 3 before talking with the Smithsonian.

 

2, 4, and 5, will hinge on Smithsonian cooperation, so a conditional agreement from them must be secured first.

 

2, 4,and 5, will have to meet Smithsonian terms to make this a lock.  The Smithsonian will likely require resumes and background checks.

 

The best of all worlds would be a leader with a doctorate in a related field and some grad students.

 

A protocol will also have to be established that is agreed upon by all parties.

 

The goal should be a paper coauthored by both the Smithsonian and the research group.

 

I would also seek an agreement with Sykes to perform DNA analysis on anything that might turn up, subject to Smithsonian terms.

Hello Cervelo,

 

All good advice. It would seem that you should be next up at the plate? ;) The process seems like a long one but then no one's going anywhere right? In the meantime let's see what happens in-house at the institute. Even that may take a while as I'm sure other researchers in various diciplines are crawling all over the place as well as the Smithsonian must get buried in emails and inquiries of all kinds.
