Though the Cardiff Giant appealed to a wide range of viewers, George Hull’s primary impetus for creating it was to demonstrate the gullibility of religious believers. Hull was an atheist, which, even in a time of increased interest in science, put him in a tiny minority and made him something of an outcast, according to Scott Tribble, author of A Colossal Hoax: The Giant from Cardiff That Fooled America (Rowman & Littlefield, 2008), who spoke to Live Science about the Cardiff Giant.

Interpol – ‘Marauder’. Turning her sorrow into glass, ‘Honey’ is an strangely euphoric, gentle giant of an album that attempts to make sense of the fall-out.
