There is a story building intrigue on the Internet regarding the discovery of a giant mummy finger. Allegedly researcher Gregor Sporri, was visiting Egypt and met a grave robber. He was permitted to take a picture and the Internet is buzzing about the discovery. The question is: Is this giant finger authentic?
The finger is also fifteen inches long! This would make the giant about twenty feet tall! It is fascinating, if this is authentic, and forensic scientist are allowed to confirm this discovery. The finger is not affiliated with any museum and this presents a big problem for authentication. There is also the possibility this is nothing more than a hoax.
Something like this should be in a museum and whomever is the owner could make a nice chunk of change selling it. The more I think about it, the more suspicious I become. I mean what is the scenario here? You are at bar and you meet a guy and he says, “Pull my finger” or “After you finish your beer, why don’t you come up to my room? I would like to show you my giant mummy finger.”
It is very vague, yet, intriguing at the same time! We do have Biblical verses to support twenty foot tall giants. We would have to reference the following:
New International Version (NIV)33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”
It is plausible this finger could be genuine; but, why the owner of it does not profit contradicts he is a grave robber. Anyway in the end, time will tell.
