Trivia

There is reference to a company, "Cardiff Giant". The Cardiff Giant was a hoax conceived by George Hull, a confirmed atheist, after having an argument with a fundamentalist minister about the existence of "Giants in the Earth" as referenced in the book of Genesis. In 1868 he built a 10 foot carved statue, treated to look ancient and buried it. A year later, when workers were hired to dig a well on his property in Cardiff, NY the statue was discovered. A great public discussion ensued as Christian Fundamentalists defended the statue as proof of the giants. The debate went on long enough for Hull to make over $20,000 - charging 50 cents to peek at the "historic artifact".
