Often in the past I came across ancient writings or references of people who had 6 digits..

6 fingers and toes.. sometimes they were seen as royalty...

Were they from another race??? Nephilim??? The renowned sons of Anak?

Ancient texts say they were much larger in size and stature than average men

I found some ancient petroglyphs that recorded 6 digited races ..

What could be an advantage of having an extra toe? :confused:

Probably none, thats why they're limited to mutations

Dont go so far as to think an alien race. Having six fingers is known as <!--coloro:#000000--><!--/coloro-->sexdactyly, hexadactyly, and even polydactyly <!--colorc--><!--/colorc-->is a autosomal dominant trait, meaning that is actually quite normal to occur within the human race. It has just been phased out over time, and while polydactylism is dominant, it doesnt necessarily mean it is the most abundant. In fact there are small populations of localized hexadacylism all over the world, it is just seldom heard about.

it's probably the effect of groups of people with similar genetic mutations inbreeding. The Vadoma tribe in Zimbabwe all have ostrich-like feet that are scaled for that reason.

5 fingers is actually a recessive gene, 6 being dominant

edit: ahh beaten to it

Ancient race, not alien.
