The Six Digits Phenomenon

This article is also available in PDF format

It is said that the giants who roamed the earth had six fingers.

It is even mentioned in the Bible. It seems that this characteristic was passed on to humans.

Although normally recessive (dormant), this DNA code can become dominant.

There have been singular persons but also groups of people who were born with a fully functional sixth finger on each hand, and also with six toes, although occasionally the sixth finger is partial.

I have included this chapter to show that the six digits appearance is a significant DNA mutation that is a perfectly healthy one.

It is not a screwed up DNA code due to radiation or something like that.

I think its importance lies in the fact that our DNA has dormant characteristics that can give a human different physical appearances.

This is also the case with elongated skulls (next chapter), with which people were born. The question is: what has unlocked these other DNA codes in the past?

Six Digit People

There is one tribe where a lot of people have six digits: the Waorani in Ecuador, a normal-sized people that has some among them that exhibit giant characteristics, such as six fingers, six toes, and double dentition (not all of them). They are a tribe of particularly violent South American aborigines called the Waorani. They were extremely violent: Fully fifty per cent of all deaths in the preceding five generations had been the result of homicide as the Waorani engaged in a continuous and deadly internal vendetta. Medically, the Waorani turned out to be something of an enigma: they had no trace of cancer; no cardiovascular disease; no high blood pressure; no allergies; and none of the known diseases familiar to us. Like the giants of past ages, they are physically very strong and violent.

A Historical Perspective

     The six fingers and toes phenomenon with the Waorani is very interesting as it occasionally shows up with other people all over the globe. It is not just limited to that one tribe. Actually I stumbled on other "tribes", which have the six digit phenomenon running through their genetic lines. It is amazing, when you start researching that stuff, that what you thought is a singular case, turns out to be one of several.

     In April of 1673, James Needham, an Englishman and Gabriel Arthur, possibly an indentured servant came with approximately eight Indians, as explorers to the Tennessee Valley. There, Needham described finding "hairy people .... (who) have a bell which is six foot over which they ring morning and evening and at that time a great number of people "congregate together and talk" in a language not English nor any Indian dialect that the accompanying Indians knew. And yet these people seemingly looked European. Needham described them as "hairy, white people which have long beards and whiskers and wears clothing." These people claimed that they were descended from a group of Portuguese who had been shipwrecked or abandoned on the Atlantic coast. The term they used was `Portyghee.' In other documents, some of these peoples were also described as having red hair and others with VERY distinctive blue or blue/green eyes. Interestingly, some descendants of the Melungeons, as they are called, have six fingers and toes!

     There is a region near Efes (Ephesus), Turkey, called "AltI Parmak" - many of the people there have historically had six fingers.

     Although the six digit phenomenon runs in family lines, it also show up randomly, when a normally recessive gene become dominant. Here are only three examples of present day six fingered people, taken from news stories:

Giants with Six Fingers

     If the characteristic of six digits shows up in people when the gene responsible for this becomes dominant, it means that this gene must come from somewhere in the past. The answer: it comes from the giants. The Bible mentions that: "There was war at Gath again, where there was a man of great stature who had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four in number; and he also had been born to the giant." 2Samual21:20.

     References in text are not necessarily proof, but skeletons are. Giant skeletons have been unearthed which has six digits.

     The remains of a giant was discovered during mining operations in County Antrim, Ireland, in 1895. The giant was 12ft, 2in tall and had six toes on the right foot. The gross weight was more than 2 tons, so it took half a dozen men and a powerful crane to place this article in position for a picture. The giant was brought to England and exhibited, but was later lost.

L. A. Marzulli went to the Catalina Museum and found documents and pictures of Ralph Glidden, who was the man responsible for conducting primitive archaeological digs on the island, in the 1920’s and 30’s. He had unearthed many skeletons of native Indians, but also of another race who measured between eight and nine feet tall. One of the pictures of these giants showed a skeleton with six fingers. You can find the whole story on Marzulli's website.

This is the picture of the six-fingered giant skeleton:

     In 1891 Crittenden, Arizona, the remains of a giant was unearthed and a huge stone coffin that had evidently once held the body of a man 12 feet tall. A carving on the granite case indicated that he had six toes.

Notice that some of the foot prints are clearly human because of the arched foot. The solid foot print is very much like the numerous footprints that have been found of Bigfoot!

Pueblo People of Chaco Canyon

The Pueblo culture of Chaco Canyon , New Mexico, had people with an extra digit. Researchers conducted an analysis of 96 skeletons excavated from Pueblo Bonito during prior expeditions, and found three polydactyl individuals, all with a sixth toe on the little toe-side of the right foot. That may not sound like a lot, but at 3.1 percent of the Chaco population, it represents a much higher rate of polydactyly than what’s seen in modern Native Americans: Today only 0.2 percent of them are affected.

Legend of Ancient Fathers with Six Fingers

     South America had many mysteries, the above mentioned six digit Waorani are one of them. Another is the tale of Tatunca Nara, recorded by journalist Karl Brugger in 1972, and published in book format in 1976 under the title "the Chronicle of Akakor. Tatunka Nara is the chief of the Ugha Mongulala tribe of Amazonian Indian.. The Chronicle recounts that the Ugha Mongulala were visited by light-skinned gods who came from the sky in golden vehicles around 1300 B.C.E. The visitors came from a world called Schwerta, and they come once every 6,000 years to share their knowledge. "In appearance, the strangers from Schwerta hardly differed from man. They had graceful bodies and white skin. Their noble faces were framed with bluish black hair. A thick beard covered their upper lip and the chin. Like man, they were vulnerable creatures of flesh and blood. But the decisive sign that distinguished the Ancient Fathers from man were the six fingers on each of their hands and the six toes on each of their feet, the characteristics of their divine origin."

Human Encounters with Six-Fingered Live Extraterrestrials

Taken from The Canadian, Friday 24. Oct 2008:

"In June 1994 Zhao Guo and two other farm workers, working at Red Flag logging camp saw something unusual on nearby Mount Pheonix.

The complex and bizarre encounter that followed involved Meng being hit by a beam of light, as well as allegedly experiencing an abduction and a sexual encounter with a female alien.

Meng Zhaoguo, a rural worker from northeast Wuchang city, explains he was 29 when he broke his marital vows for the first and only time -- with an extraterrestrial of unusually robust build.

"She was 10 feet [3.03 meters] tall and had six fingers, but otherwise she looked completely like a human,'' he says. "I told my wife all about it afterwards. She wasn't too angry.''

During September 2003 Zhang Jingping, a Beijing-based UFO researcher, had psychologists and police technicians subject Zhao Guo to hypnosis and a lie detector test in Beijing. Zhang indicated the test results proved the abductee was telling the truth.

He also indicated that doctors had indicated that Zhao Guo's scars "could not possibly have been caused by common injuries or surgery." Meng Zhao Guo, a humble farmer with only 5 year's schooling, also indicated that he had never heard of UFOs or ufologists until after his experience had been reported."


From the book Where Heavens Meet, by K. T. Frankovich:

A woman who had a close encounter with a gray type being at close range, and who was able to observe its body in detail, noticed that it had six fingers. Later she was visited by another gray being also with six fingers. Drawing is from the book.

little alien with six fingers

 Philip Schneider, who worked on the construction of secret underground military bases. showed on one of his talks (you can find it on YouTube) an original photograph of the ready room of the USS Eldridge , including atomic bomb scientists , time variant experimentalists , all the top physicists and a benevolent alien which has been working for the US Pentagon since 1937-38 in the US Navy and military operations. Schneider explains that one of the men on the photograph is a human-looking extraterrestrial, named Val Valiant Thor. Phil suspected Val Thor was employed under duress stating [about Thor] “If you don’t do what we say we’ll just use you for alien bait”.

It is said Val Thor’s lifespan is 490 years. He is human looking, has six fingers and six toes and an oversized heart. One giant lung, blood vessels that are bigger and blood similar to an octopus. Brain capacity is 300cm greater than humans. IQ is about 1200. Speaks a hundred languages fluently [alien and human] but doesn’t shake hands. Apparently Thor is in a space-suit as such. Minimizing the risk of contamination by humans of alien germs and bacteria it is said.. Dr Frank Stranges, a researcher and evangelist produced a video documentary on the Pentagon’s greatest secret in the 1990’s on Val Valiant Thor and his role within the US Pentagon and Thor’s alien origins.

Quebradillas, Puerto Rico - Summer 1996 - 5:00 PM

18-year-old Norberto Perez was at his aunt's house for a family reunion when he began experiencing a strong headache and stomach discomfort. He then became very sleepy and decided to go to bed. At the moment that he closed his eyes he found himself in a strange metallic room on a cot-like bed, unable to move. Standing around him were four 4-foot tall humanoids, very thin and wearing tight fitting gold-colored outfits and gold sandals. They had long six fingered hands. Soon a door suddenly appeared in the metallic wall and a tall figure entered the room. This figure was described a man-like, very good looking, with white skin, and blond hair. He was surrounded by a bright light and wore a white long tunic up to his ankles, with silvery sandals. The witness noticed that the man wore a gold colored ring with the image of a pyramid imprinted on it. The tall blond male then approached him and one of the short humanoids handed him a transparent sphere that contained an electronic chip-like device. The sphere was placed over Perez's forehead, and it floated, then it floated over different parts of his body then it vanished. At that moment the blond man approached him and apparently began communicating by using telepathy since he did not move his lips. He told the witness not to fear. The witness then asked why he was chosen and was told because "he had been born with a special type of energy."

Soon the witness was able to move and he was taken into another room that seemed to be the control center. There he saw three of the short humanoids operating some consoles. Suddenly a huge screen became visible where he saw all the planets align. Then he saw the planet Earth but it appeared to be upside down. Then he saw something resembling a nuclear blast and much death and destruction. He was then warned that humanity was headed in that direction if we did not mend our ways.

Another door now became visible and the witness noticed what appeared to be dozens of domed disc-shaped objects, apparently in a huge hangar. The tall blonde-haired person noticed the witness looking at the objects then preceded to touch his forehead with a finger. At that moment the witness found himself back in bed. For three hours afterwards he was in a state of mental confusion.

Location. Voronok, Szelkovo area, Moscow region, Russia
Date: November 1989 Time: evening
A militia captain named Yuriy Mishichev was returning home from duty on the road along the banks of the River Klyazma which was covered with a thin layer of ice at the time. Suddenly he saw two silhouettes standing near the water rescue cabin. The “men” seemed to be doing something in a haste, which alarmed Yuriy and he was compelled to approach them. He noticed that the two suspicious subjects were dressed in tight-fitting diver suits. The material of the suits looked unusual, it was a transparent material which reminded the witness of the thin latex used in condoms, and lacked any visible seams. The aliens wore masks on the face area with elongated bulging goggles reminiscent of insects. Yuriy knew the guys from the station and thought that they were testing some kind of new foreign equipment for diving and rescue. So he approached the “divers” and with a smile offer to help. There was no reply. Mishichev then thought since a military space-tracking center was located beyond the river, he surmised that the divers were somehow connected with the Army or maybe they were spies. He approached closer and told the strangers to remove their masks, explaining his request by gesture also, stretching his hand towards one of the strangers. In response one of the men moved his hand away with his palm; at this point Mishichev realized that the “man” had a six digit hand. Finally he realized that the strangers were either military or divers and he decided to arrest them (!) and took one of them by the elbow. The touch on the alien’s body felt very cold while the witness ordered the stranger to follow him. He pulled the alien by the elbow forcing him to take a step towards the rescue cabin, but the alien stopped refusing to walk any further. The alien did not struggle or tried to break loose he just stood still as the witness’s suddenly felt heavy and was unable to walk. His brain felt numb and his body felt like it weighed a ton of lead. Overcoming that terrible torpid state attempting to push and pull the alien, but was unable to maintain the struggle for a long time. His eyelids became heavy, his elbows bended and he fell to the ground like a heavy sack of potatoes. Later he woke up but the aliens had vanished. Two days after the incident the witness heard that there had been a UFO landing at a runway at the nearby Chkalovskiy Air Base. Source: Secret Files of Soviet Militia “Anomalous News” .
