There’s no denying that Facebook is a huge waste of time, but I also find some very cool articles passed along by friends. Here’s one.
Did you know that over the years people have found hundreds of giant human skeletons buried all over the Midwestern US and the rest of the world? They are sometimes found singly or in pairs, but often in large groups, with individuals measuring between 7 and 12 feet tall. Apparently they don’t tend to find their way into museums, but it seems to be fairly well documented.
You can find an incredible amount of stories of giants, from the east coast to the west, from the north to the south. Bones, skulls, six fingered fossils, tombs, mounds, caves. Newspaper articles were written and archaeological research done. But where are the findings now?
You can even read the newspaper clippings for yourself!
I’m one of those crazy people who believe that there really were giants back when the world was young, and – here’s the shocker – I think the clearest reading of Genesis 6:1-4 indicates that they were the offspring of humans and fallen angels.
1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
I know I am in the minority, so don’t take my views as representative of anyone else, but it really seems to the shortest distance between two points. “Sons of God” was a very common phrase in the Old Testament and always referred to angels, fallen or otherwise; only in the New Testament do we gain the title of sons and daughters of the Most High.
Want to know something else? I have my own hypothesis that these offspring had supernatural powers and often rose to positions of religious and/or political power. The ancient Egyptian pharaohs claimed that they could trace their lineage directly to their gods; what if these “gods” were fallen angels? The Bible itself bears witness that the magicians in pharaoh’s court could do real magic, although they couldn’t compete with God’s power. Many of the Greek myths talk of “gods” having children with human women, and the offspring were demi-gods: supermen, mortals with long lives and incredible strength and sometimes magical powers.
I’m sure the list could go on and on, and to the best of my knowledge this idea is nowhere contradicted in the Bible. The only thing that makes it sound crazy is our own assumption that it can’t be true.
What do you think?
