I would like to share with you what could be one of the best pieces of evidence that there were once giants on Earth a long, long time ago. Geologists have marvelled at this giant foot print in rough granite, about 4 feet long. This is a deeply sacred, mystical and spiritual place among African knowledge keepers and so it should remain. It is affectionately known as the Footprint of God. At about 4 feet in length, the person who would have left it behind must have been about 24 feet OR7, 5 m tall. This site presents us with a real dilemma and a deep mystery that needs to be resolved.
I start many of my presentations by saying, that the history of our planet is a lot stranger than most of us could possibly imagine. All you need to do is look at the brilliant research of Klaus Dona, to see the evidence of 7,5m-tall giants in prehistory on our planet.
Some claim that the footprint is a natural erosion pattern. Personally I find that suggestion highly improbable for various reasons that I will not go into here. But to support my thoughts on this, Prof. Pieter Wagener from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth SA, and a PhD in applied maths, suggests that "there is a higher probability of little green men arriving from space and licking it out with their tongues, than it being created by natural erosion".
The footprint is located in South Africa, near the town of Mpaluzi, close to the Swaziland border. It is estimated to be between 200 million and 3 billion years old because of our current understanding of the formation of granites in Earth's history. This dating immediately causes heated debate and argument - so I urge you to keep your mind open and focused on the evidence.
This amazing footprint in granite was discovered in 1912 by a farmer called Stoffel Coetzee, while hunting. At that time this was a deeply remote part of South Africa known as the Eastern Transvaal, teeming with wild life, including antelope, wildebeest and lions. The footprint remains in the same condition as it was when first discovered. The possibility that this was a carved hoax is extremely low because of its remote location. The erosion pattern inside the foot is very similar to thenatural erosion around the footprint. It is unimaginable that a few thousand years ago, someone decided to carve a giant footprint into the rock at this remote particular spot. Even today, it is difficult to find.
The real mystery is how this amazing phenomenon occurred – I have no real proof but I have several theories and ideas, but these are just speculation, allowing for an extremely unusual set of circumstances. BUT – the footprint remains and we cannot wish it away.
YES - It is granite - it is a well recognised geological part of South Africa and recorded on all geological maps - that is why this footprint is such an incredible mystery. It can be described as a "phenocrystic" granite, OR coarse porphyritic granite, that underwent several different stages of cooling. The result being an interesting mixture of large and small granules. This is why granite companies are keen to mine this area for granite because it will look really "pretty" when polished.In the official Geology Of South Africa, this outcrop is called Mpuluzi Batholith (Granite) and the official dating of this rock produced dates of around 3,1 billion years.
Let me remind you that we know less about our human history than is allowed by the laws of physics. So if you fall into the category of individuals who immediately dismiss this as a hoax or natural erosion, I ask you to check your ego and arrogance and open your mind to infinite possibility in a multiverse of infinite possibility.
This is a real mystery that needs close scientific examination and I will be embarking on this in the near future.
