Giants are found in the myths and legends of many different cultures.
Their appearance rarely differs much from an ordinary human.
For example, these Cyclops in the Odyssey written by Homer, besides being a giant, was generally human looking, except for that one big eye in the center of his forehead.
The Bible mentions in passing a divine origin for ancient Giants, and in Scandinavian legends Giants actually confront the gods.
“At that time, there were giants on the Earth, since the sons of God began to enter the daughters of men, and began to give birth to them, they are strong anciently glorious people” .
Why did people on different continents and in such disparate civilizations have such similar stories about Giants ?
Is it possible that these are remnants of memories of certain ancient civilizations ?
