In 2004, the “discovery” was blogged and emailed to the world (“Huge skeleton unearthed!”) and made a comeback in 2007. The fake photo might be obvious to most people.

But the big story refuses to go away even five years later, if a copious stream of emails to National Geographic News is any indication. (The National Geographic Society owns National Geographic News.)

The news comes from all over the world: Portugal, India, El Salvador, Malaysia, Africa, the Dominican Republic, Greece, Egypt, South Africa and Kepia. But everyone asks the same question:

Is it true? To fuel the story’s recent comeback, there are a handful of media outlets that have reported the discovery as fact. For example, an oft-quoted March 2007 article in the Hipdu Voice of India claimed that a team from the National Geographic Society, working closely with the Hindu AMY, had discovered a giant human skeleton in India.

The story claimed that the discovery was made by a «National Geographic Team (India Division) with the assistance of the Indians as the area is under Indian jurisdiction.»

The report added that the team also found tablets with inscriptions indicating that the giant belonged to a generation of superhumans featured in the Mahabharata, a Hindu epic from the 3rd century B.C. BC, are mentioned.

«They were very tall, large and very powerful, so much so that they could hug a tree trunk with their arms and tear it up,» the report said, repeating claims that first emerged in 2004.

Voice editor P. Deivamuthu admitted to National Geographic News that his publication was targeted by false reports. is based in Mumbai and issued a retraction after readers alerted Deivamuthu to the scam, he said.

“We are against the spread of plagues and diseases,” added Deivamuthu. “Besides, our readers are a very intellectual class and will not tolerate obsession.” Other blog articles, such as a May 2007 post on a website called Sripi’s Weblog, purportedly quote a report published in the Times of India on April 22, 2004.

But a search of this newspaper’s archives did not find this article. The scam involved the discovery of a 60 to 80 foot (18 to 24 meter) long human skeleton in Saudi Arabia.

In a popular recording, also first released in 2004, it is reported that an oil exploration team came to the conclusion. Here the skeleton is presented as evidence of giants with Islamic scriptures rather than Hindu ones.

Websites dedicated to exposing urban legends and “petlore” collected the various giant scams shortly after they first surfaced. California-based Snopes.com, for example, published that the image of the skeleton had been stolen from Worth1000, which hosts photography contests.
