Stonehenge Was Built By Satan's Giants, Creationist Claims

"That’s just one out of hundreds and hundreds of gigantic places around the world."

Who built Stonehenge? One creationist claims to have the answer: Giants.

Not just any giants, either. Theologist Dr. Dennis Lindsay, president and CEO of Christ For The Nations, claims Satan created a race of giants to build the ancient megalithic site.

Speaking last week on the TV show hosted by disgraced televangelist Jim Bakker, Lindsay announced that Satan had created the giants to infiltrate and destroy Israel.

It's not clear how arranging stones to align with the sun on the solstice in England would help destroy Israel, but that didn't stop Lindsay -- who has no background in archaeology listed on his website -- from pressing the case.

"He's out to destroy God's creation and his whole plan of redemption and contaminate the human race because Jesus came not to save hybrids or non-human beings or fallen angels or Lucifer," Lindsay said. "He came to save human beings and to have a family." 

Satan wants to "have his own seed" and "make his own family," Lindsay said in video posted online by Right Wing Watch.

Lindsay seems to have anticipated resistance to the notion of giants in world history, given the complete lack of historical records or fossil evidence. So he offered this explanation as proof: 

"Why and what is the evidence for giant beings on this Earth? We all know about Stonehenge, right? And that’s just one out of hundreds and hundreds of gigantic places around the world that testify that some sort of supernatural power or giants were involved in its construction."
