The photos and articles surrounding giant humanoid skeletal remains uncovered in archaeological digs are all fake and created via a precise and creative use of Photoshop, according to Snopes. The original picture that sparked the entire hoax was an entry to a photo-manipulation contest being held online.
The challenge was to create a picture that looked so real that viewers would do a double-take when they saw it. The photo was taken from the site and paired with both Biblical and Islamic accounts of giants that once walked the earth among men. Exactly what creatures they were, from demigods to Nephilim, varied from article to article depending on where it was being published.
