And There Were Giants in The Earth in Those Days;
Archaeological evidence Reveals that there were giants living throughout the earth in pre-historic times. These people were Disbursed throughout the earth and skeletal remains have been found In in Arizona, near Mount Whitney in California, near White Sands, New Mexico, But, in addition, several other giant human footprints and even skeletal remains have been found in diverse locations.
Giant skeletons were found in the mid-1800s near Rutland and Rodman, New York. In 1876 J.N. DeHart, M.D. found vertebrae "larger than those of the present type" in Wisconsin mounds. In 1877 W.H.R. Lykins uncovered skull bones "of great size and thickness" in mounds near the Kansas City area.
A mound near Toledo, Ohio, held 20 skeletons, seated and facing east with jaws and teeth "twice as large as those of present day people," and besides each was a large bowl with "curiously wrought hieroglyphic figures." (Chicago Record, Oct. 24, 1895; cited by Ron G. Dobbins, NEARA Journal, v13, fall 1978).
In 1911, several red-haired mummies ranging from 6 and a half feet to 8 feet tall were found in a cave in Lovelock, Nevada. In February and June of 1931, large skeletons were found in the Humboldt lake bed near Lovelock, Nevada. The first of these two skeletons found measured 8 1/2 feet tall and appeared to have been wrapped in a type of fabric similar to that used to wrap Egyptian mummies. The second skeleton was almost 10 feet long.(Review - Miner, June 19, 1931).
George W. Hill, M.D., dug out a skeleton "of unusual size" in a mound of Ashland County, Ohio. In 1879, a nine-foot, eight-inch skeleton was excavated from a mound near Brewersville, Indiana(Indianapolis News, Nov 10, 1975).
Both Captains Cooke and Magellan wrote in their ship's logs about race of giants that inhabited what we now know as the Pacific coast of South America. Cook was even supposed to have captured one of the giants reported to be nine feet tall.The captive escaped.
A human skeleton measuring eleven feet was found some years ago, near the border of East Pakistan, reported Peter Kolosimo (1922-1984) a reknowned award winning Italian journalist and writer. Discoveries such as the afore mentioned have been unearthed through out the world. Everywhere from Indonesia to Europe. Ireland to china and Africa to the pacific shores of Mexico.
Ancient writings refer to this giant peoples as Nephilim.
Some have claimed that the Nephilim, or the "sons of God," both mentioned in Genesis 6:2-4, were aliens. The most common view is that the "sons of God" who married the "daughters of men" were fallen angels, and that the Nephilim were products of those "marriages." The Nephilim were a race of giants, born of a mixed divine and human parentage, who became famous for their heroic deeds in the days before the Great flood, and who re-emerged after the great flood and have been present on earth since the Deluge.
The books of Apocrypha, including the book of Enoch, claim the disembodied Nephilim are the origin of demons, and accuse them of vile wickedness. though their half-mortal bodies could be slain, their half-angel souls could not, nor could they be held in chains. They remain on the earth, wandering at will, and though chaotic and destructive will not be punished for their deeds until the Final Judgment "in which the present age will be brought to an end". Tradition holds that now and then a Nephilim spirit will take on human form. It is in the human form that the Nephilim spirts copulate with women and produce their hybred off-spring.
The Jewish chronicler Josephus states that even in his own day it was not uncommon for people to dig up gigantic skeletal remains.
Reading further, both in 2 Samuel 21:16-22 and I Chronicles 20:4-8, we discover that Goliath, who is believed to be an off spring of the union of a fallen angel and human woman, had relatives, also giants:
1) Ishbi-Benob , whose bronze spearhead weighed three hundred shekels (more than seven pounds) and who said he would kill David;
2) Saph (or Sippai), another descendant of Rapha (the giant of Gath, and father of Goliath and four other giants who are mentioned in the scriptures as feared Philistine warriors.);
3) Lahmi (the brother of Goliath), whose spear shaft resembled a weaver's rod; and
in the Kabalistic Book of Enoch, the Giants engendered by the Fallen Angels and daughters of men turned against mankind before the Flood. And God was not going to let the vile wickedness continue so he destroyed all of the inhabitants of the earth except for those who were in the Ark.
God saved Noah and his family and man began anew. As did the evil.
