    Giants in land of Canaan



    I thought this was really cool, how scientists keep finding proof of biblical stories!
    Remember the Old Testament story of how the Israelites were afraid because of the GIANTS in the land of Canaan ?
    Numbers 13:33 There we saw the GIANTS (the descendants of Anak came from the GIANTS); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight." (King James Version)
    There are many lies being told about creation and every wind of doctrine. The bible is a history book that not only tells the past, but also the future. Interesting, What does anyone has to say about the things the scientists are dicovering that is spoken of in the bible?

      Most novels are set in real locations - Stephen King often sets his horrors in American west churches, just becasue the church building is portrayed accurately it does not mean that there is a diabolical workshop under the floor - or maybe it does big_smile

          I am always pleased to share truth and light on this subject. smile

          'Land of giants' can mean many things, here in China many westerners could be thought of as giants, unfortunately not intellect but in height and width.  When I first came here I could see my buddy at the other end of a crowded street because at 6 foot three he stood a full foot and a half above most other people.

            alternate,  you have not shared the truth and light on this subject. Read Numbers 13:33 in the bible when you get a chance. If you don't bother to read it, that will prove to me that you don't care to know the truth. Scientists have dugged up these giants, and found their huge fossil remains of humans.

              WOC - i am only interested in the truth - and any information is throwing light on a subject.  You will not find light in your book, only blindness to reality until you start reading it as the metaphorical message that it is.  I see you have not posted the pic of these 'bones' yet ?  maybe this is another 'ark' story where a team of hard core christian pseudo archaeologists are busy on Mount Ararat trying to fabricate 'evidence'?

You will see real photos of giant human fossils, and it's not fake. I am sure you will found a way to disaprove the photos to disaprove the bible.

                  Because it is fake.  A well known fake.  If it was real, named scientists would have submitted the data to peer-reviewed journals. "Science" is more than a few digital phots, it is a complex process with a lot of careful checks that these do not pass.

        Yup, there's always one in the bunch.  Trolling around to spread their "truth".  Alternate poet, you will find your answers-someday.  Science is a matter of theories.  The word theory comes from the greek "theos", meaning God, the very word used in the greek texts of the new testament.  To my knowledge, theory is just that-theory.  Unfortunately, modern science does not throw out the theories that are not supported by evidence from the knowledge pool.  Instead, they throw the knowledge back into the pool and look for "new" knowledge, rather than adjusting or changing the theory.  Science is faulty-God is not.  Man is fallible-God is not.  Trust in man and you will lose.

      you lost me here, what giants have we found? I know of dinosaurs? of fossil remains of humans?  ..   pieces of tablets (parchment leaf) found burried with the dead schrools thought to be from the first 5 books- Genisis. Are you refering to that?

      Because In truth- we may never find the artifacts, because the Arab goverments controling the land control the dig and research permits also, and they know Israel is choosen and thus prevent proof from being found.

      They red tape it to death, restrict the dig areas, so its impossible and sometimes flat dis-allow it for no reason. Sense I have been at Vanderbuilt I have seen true factual sattelite information and samples get trashed for no reason! Just because.

      Without that ability,  there is no evidence for the existence of Jesus that comes from the time of Jesus—no writings or artifacts of his, no accounts of him written in his lifetime – and critics often accuse Biblical scholars of creating Jesus in their own image.

      According to traditional Church teaching the Gospels of John and Matthew were written by eyewitnesses, but a majority of modern critical biblical scholars no longer believe this is the case.

      A small number of scholars believe the gospel accounts are so mythical in nature that nothing including the very existence of Jesus can be determined from them.

      Notable researchers like John Remsburg and Richard Dawkins don't go that far,  but they say that while the Gospel accounts are no more historical than any other myth (In fact, Dawkins likens them to an ancient Da Vinci Code) but he also does say the odds are Jesus did exist.

      Some of the Other respected researchers like G. R. S. Mead and Ellegard have argued that the Gospel Jesus is a myth based on an earlier historical person described in either the Talmud or Dead Sea Scrolls.

      However, the majority of the scholars who study early Christianity believe that the Gospels do contain some reliable information about Jesus, and that the synoptic Gospels are actualy accounts of the different aspects of Jesus.

      Like John-writing of jesus in the flesh, Luke- writing on the psychological aspects of Jesus, his mind set....like that. but again you have to keep in mind that its based on Biblical text writen years after his death.

      The only way to call it truth is to take it on Pure faith alone with no facts backing you. hard for researchers to do.

      They uphold and also contradict each other, so it is hard to say what is correct.

            I think alternate your country has you not thinking. China is jesus intolerant and how about that, so are you. The people whose houses are being bulldozed are giving up lots, including freedom for their harmless belief and freedom to choose a God to worship. Yet you side with government.  You i am sure are only being politically correct, i would hope the government has not opinionated its people in some way. At what age is this anti-jesus mentality taught to people. In the schools? Or since the Tiananmen square fiasco has the populace become under dictatorship? The 3 self church does sound like a church i would not want to go to, since jesus did not believe in the self life as all important.
            am i correct?

              correct ?  you are a babbling like a fool.

              China tolerates all religions - but bans proselytising.  Down the road from me there is a mosque and a Baptist church near the city centre, a Taoist temple and a Buddhist temple the other end of the street.  I have good friends who are Buddhist, Taoist, christian and no religion.  None of htem are persecuted or feel any pressure at all.

              The only christians persecuted here are a weird sect that accosts people in the street promising that god will grow back missing legs and arms and straighten deformites. You would think that such an organisation practicing such a blatant con on vulnerable people would be banned anywhere in the world - but of course interfering christians outside of China keep right on sending them money to 'assist' in their 'good' works.

              You should try getting a few facts under your belt before you staart spouting nonsense about a country you clearly know nothing at all about.

              There is no anti-jesus teaching here - such a nonssense of an idea has never caught on because the Chinese are pragmatic sensible people who do not accept bullsh*t - despite christianity being introduced here long before America was formed from the rabble of the old countries.

            ap... why do you feel the need to attack or try and belittle others that do not share your opinion?
            There is no reason to get upset. Are you insecure in your faith?
            I commend science. It has made great strides in a lot of areas. Some helpful, some not so helpful, but hey, for the science industry, they've come a long way. But for the rest of us, science will always have 2 steps to go in order to catch up to us. The Bible is the greatest history, science, and math book you can read.
            As far as science, the Bible is their blueprint or instruction sheet. 
            Now, it does not make any difference if you agree or disagree with me, for you see, my mind is set. In stone.
            You see, any scientist will tell you sir, when you build a house, the first thing you need to KNOW is to build on a stable foundation.

            if you look closely you can see the rocks in the foreground are water worn as in a river was rushing over them. Impressive i think.

            there is also evidence that when Gods people crossed the sea, God parted the water, yes, but he also leveled out the bottom by causing it to rise and be flat for easy walking across. Chariot wheels and more can be found at the crossing site.

              There are heaps of split rocks in nature - they happen because water gets in cracks and expands when freezes.  Rocks don't dissolve away when water rushes over them for a short time - it takes a long time.  Did God split all the other rocks in nature too?

Despite this local knowledge, I have never heard of any skeletons of giants there - it seems that even the Greek media and the Greek Orthodox Church missed such a landmark event happening in their own country.

          Courage, no proof of giants, skelital remains yes, some (hunter-gatherer) desert dweller if you will, artifacts of nomad tribes, and a big argument as to the borders of Cannan as to who was where, what tribes and who owns what? Who was first, all that stuff.

          here is some real history about it for you (not my writing) if you are interested   smile

          Canaan (Phoenician:  or  Kanaʻn; Hebrew: כְּנָעַן Kənáʻan; Arabic: كنعان Kanʻān) is an ancient term for a region encompassing modern-day Israel, Lebanon, the Palestinian territories and adjoining coastal lands, including parts of Jordan, Syria and northeastern Egypt.

          In the Hebrew Bible, the "Land of Canaan" extends from Lebanon southward across Gaza to the "Brook of Egypt" and eastward to the Jordan River Valley. In far ancient times, the southern area included various ethnic groups.

          The Amarna Letters found in Ancient Egypt mention Canaan (Akkadian: Kinaḫḫu) in connection with Gaza and other cities along the Phoenician coast and into Upper Galilee. Many earlier Egyptian sources also mention numerous military campaigns conducted in Ka-na-na, just inside Asia.

          Various Canaanite sites have been excavated by archaeologists.

          Canaanites spoke Canaanite languages, closely related to other Northwest Semitic languages. Canaanites are mentioned in the Bible, Mesopotamian and Ancient Egyptian texts. Although the residents of ancient Ugarit (modern Ras Shamra in Syria) do not seem to have considered themselves Canaanite, and did not speak a Canaanite language (but one that was closely related, the Ugaritic language), archaeologists have considered the site, which was rediscovered in 1928, as quintessentially Canaanite.

          Much of the modern knowledge about the Canaanites stems from excavation in this area. Canaanite culture apparently developed in situ from the Circum-Arabian Nomadic Pastoral Complex, which in turn developed from a fusion of Harifian hunter gatherers with Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (PPNB) farming cultures, practicing animal domestication, during the 6,200 BC climatic crisis.

          why is it so hard for you to understand that yahweh works through people. And the people he used were his own disciples. There are 4 gospels because at the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be establish, hence 3 gospels and johns.
          God breathed, God inspired = Good reading = excellent instruction.

          there were 11 disciples with judas dead and in gehenna before the morning sacrifice. The disciples cast lots to pick the 12th disciple (12 is a governmental number) and picked thomas whom we hear was a doubter and not too much about, hence, GOD picked Saul! This was a brilliant move on Gods part because Paul was so very perfect for this job.

          It is all very simple and easy to understand and believe if one has faith in God and believes that the scriptures are fulfilled in jesus christ.

            Maybe Paul was hallucinating when he thought he met Jesus?  Just because the gospels were named after disciples, doesn't mean they wrote them either.  It is thought that they have all been copied from each other

              It's amazing that for a bunch of artists and writers, no has ever heard of simultaneous creativity.  So a) maybe the gospels were written during simultaneous creativity - it happens  b) hasn't anyone ever just felt really good?  Blissful even?  Haven't you ever felt a connection to the Divine?  Any divine?  That's probably the way it went down.

                  It's like the old saying "you don't know until you know" or "who feels it, knows it".  As humans, we've grown so far away from our potential as beings.  We don't rely on instinct anymore or the inner 'knowing' of things.  I think you are all right in different ways.  There is a Huge Presence, some call Divine, among us.  But you will never see Grace if you won't go anywhere near it.  It's really healthy to allow all kinds of information and perspective to flow around us, then take in what 'feels' right.  No monkeys, no cretons, no cults necessary.  Just real human potential growing as collective consciousness.

          Whether the photos are a 'hoax' or not, the Holy Bible is full of history and future coming events-no one can deny this.  Believing in it is another thing.  This is where "faith" comes in.  I happen to believe in it 100%, even though many scholars try to challenge it.  I'm not trying to offend anybody-just stating my point of view.  God bless!:-)

            This thread is about giant skeletons and how they support the Bible.  If the conclusion is that the Bible doesn't need (or want) any such support, that sounds a little like having it both ways.  IMHO the best relationship between religion and science is arms-length and no closer.  Faith and falsifiability are opposites.

          I did check the link and it even explains it's a hoax and how it was done. This is your proof?

          THERE'S A good reason we haven't heard about this epic discovery in the New York Times, Scientific American, or any other legitimate publication, and that is that these photos, like the one circulating since 2004 purporting to show a giant skeleton found in the Middle East, are fakes.

          As if it weren't preposterous enough to claim that one 15-foot-tall fossilized human skeleton had turned up without media fanfare, we're asked to believe that archaeologists recently dug up four of them in a single location (Greece). In point of fact, each of the photos appears to have been taken at a different time and place.

          So far I've only been able to locate the original of one of them, but it serves as clear proof that Photoshopping took place. Image #4 was created by inserting an outsized human skull into a photo of a 1993 University of Chicago dinosaur dig in Niger, Africa (see the original here). If you look at a blow-up of the doctored image, the skull appears flattened and unnatural (and one of the workers actually appears to be standing on it!).

          Moreover, the same cut-and-pasted skull was used to create image #2 (see side-by-side comparison). A blow-up of image #2 with brightness and contrast enhanced reveals unnaturally dark "shadows" around the skull. The skull in Image #3 is marked by incongruously bright highlights on the teeth and around the edges of the gaping temple wound. And in image #5 the shadows coming off the skeleton fall more or less toward the camera, while the worker's shadow falls due left, suggesting that elements of two different photos were combined.

          Finally, despite frequent references to "giants" in ancient mythology and English translations of the Bible, there is no generally accepted scientific or historical evidence that such beings ever actually existed (unless you consider the Weekly World News a reliable source). \

          Did you even read the entire article?

          There is no doubt in my mind that the bible has a great deal of good history and that archeology periodically unearths evidence to confirm the record. Here are two things to consider;

          1.  A lack of evidence, or silence, does not disprove the biblical account. Critics used to say there was no writing at the time of Moses but that argument was disproved when the Nuzi tablets were discovered. They were common, every-day records from the time of Abraham.

          2. Accurately reporting historical events does not automatically lead to the correct conclusions. It may be historically accurate to say that the Israelites invaded Canaan and slaughtered the Canaanites and Amalekites but that does not mean God told them to, it could be complete speculation based on the words of one man, Moses.     

          I think people often confuse "evidence that demands a verdict" with the verdict someone proposes.

          It begs the questions,
          "What if there is an alternative verdict for the same historical facts?"
          What if I am wrong?

          Is that worth thinking about?

              @Baileybear.

              No, not all! For instance I certainly don't regard Adam and Eve as history. Fantasy and myth is what it is smile

              However there is historical data in the bible that has been verified from other sources, for example the Assyrian conquest of Samaria and siege of Jerusalem. So it's not all bunk. Point 1. simply means that silence does not disprove something, it just means its not verified.

              The mistakes many Christians make;

              1. Equating verified historical facts with the associated commentary. The bible is right that this happened (here's the proof) therefore it MUST BE RIGHT that god told them to do it. The two are NOT directly linked.

              2. Believing the  bible account as if it fact without any corroborating evidence. A healthy degree of caution might be advisable. 

              3. Considering the commentary in isolation from the general context. Hence ignoring or rationalising the many inconsistencies.

              For example, because archeologists find tablets in Nuzi that prove that Moses COULD have written the Torah (historical validation) it does not mean that Moses actually wrote it (the commentary).

              I hoe that makes sense smile

          I would have to say it (science) would say the same of the things it found in the tombs of Ramses II and on the hieroglyphs; or the Vedic scripts and relics.

          In defense of TORAH (Tanakh; Babylonian Talmud), not "The Bible", the events written do seem to line up largely ( but not thoroughly) with many archeological discoveries.

          However, seeing that there is no big difference between the equation approach to "it all" and the sensational approach, I would conclude both science and religion are not proving anything more than:
          1. They can write well and spew memorized systems.
          2. Like to play in the same sandbox alone or together.

          Hopefully, at some point, before or after the marriage between them is finalized or a total reuniting --as in days long gone, but written about -- they will stop searching the past for a future they know nothing about and certainly won't even try to find out about or engage from the perspective of the One they are searching for...

          Have a great day!

                Moses was a scientist.
                Elisha was also considered a scientist.
                Many of the Levites & Amorites were consider scientists, since they explored the health of foods, tested plants, animals, etc.
                And oddly, a few were taxidermists.

                Perhaps their "temples" or "lab's" weren't shiny stainless steel and glass ones, nor their museums as impressive as the Smith, but scientists were shoulder to shoulder with beliefs systems and even formed those belief systems through the use of the term magic --including incense, potions, healing elixirs (the Aramaic for elixir means: recipe and the Greek xerion: dry powder), etc from plants and animal extracts aka apothecary (from where pharmacy originates). The most noted alchemist group were the servants of King Midas. Both are highly noted using a base compound found in nearly all modern medicine --salt.

            Sry AP, I didn't realize you had posted the actual article explaining it is a hoax before I posted the same. I really don't understand the mentality of some people, actually a lot of people. They will deny every bit of evidence that proves them wrong in order to retain the fantasy they cling to.

              this is the problem when reason fails - it becomes a business of trying to bend everything else to fit.  I wouldn't care so much but at a higher level they are book burning as fast as they can.  I tried to download 'famous' religious pictures to show the evolution of art to explain how we 'saw' in two dimensions until the Renaissance and how we can now 'see' in three dimensions - and how we could explore how to 'see' in the 'fourth' dimension for a philosphy lecture.  All the art that shows this 'evolution' was missing from its placeholders in the big collections online - and missing from many university online collections also which was deeply worrying.

              I found enough from a UK site to do the job but the idea that christians would go to such great lengths to keep their redundant thinking going is frightening.

                          WOC - you seem to be a nice innocent kind of person. Your spelling and grammar indicate that you are not educated very highly - and this is not an attack on you or your writing, just an obsservation about  you.  Religion was made for people like you and in that aspect it does some kind of service. You clearly need something to 'believe' in and someone to guide you through life.  It is a great pity that you chose or were indoctrinated into your current chosen path because many other religions like Buddhism for one example are far more gentle and caring, far more instructive and really help anyone to find their own personal path.  There are many things about your religion that I find hateful and counter-productive to any kind of reason and use for the world - not in a personal sense but in the overall effect in which it is used, currently to foment a war on Islam so that the wicked people who use and abuse your religion can persuade you that it is ok to attack other countries for their own gain.

                          But this is a public forum and by continually propogating what I, and many others, see as dangerous nonsense you invite mockery when you are so gullible that you fall for simple hoaxes such aas your giant skeletons.  I for one, would be pleased to leave you to your own ideas if you keep your naive views within the threads for like minded naive people - then you can converse with others who share your beliefs like Brenda Durham.

When I asked him what he was using for proof to support this statement he answered...I believe in god and that's all the proof I need. Some people should look up the definintion of proof in my opinion, not that it will do any good to those who prefer to live in a fantasy world.

            That is really inaccurate to say that science being used to backup biblical statements is pseudo science. Pseudo science is more along the lines of  parapsychology, which, even so, has increased in popularity. The scientific creation story actually isn't terribly different from the biblical creation of the universe. The main difference being that in one (according to Dr. Hawking) gravity caused the nothingness of the void to explode into the present universe. In the other, god caused the void to explode into the present universe. Personally, I think Stephen just decided on a new name for god:GRAVITY

                    Then many died with outbreaks of disease, because they had no understanding of hygiene etc.  They didn't know about pathogens in those days - it would have been "God was punishing" or "the devil was at work"

                        Many aspects of religious books are proven wrong many many times. However it is the blind followers with their fear & emotional response, refuses to accept the fact that there are flaws in their holy book.

                        You see a lot of flaws in Quran but you wont be able to convince Muslims that those are real flaws because they will come up with a different interpretation to save their faith.

                        From evolution to the age of creation, there are many flaws in Bible that the Atheists are pointing at from very long time. Those are real flaws of Bible but you wont agree because your subconscious mind is scared to accept the fact & just like Muslims u also come up with different interpretations to save ur arse.

                        In the days of Greeks, there were two classes of people: 1. The pagans & 2. The Intellectuals. The Intellectual knew the pagans were wrong but couldnt convince them the truth. Thus both co-existed unless a better belief system came to replace them. The same thing is happening right now. Those books are proven to be false long time ago. The scholars & scientists already know that but masses of people will continue to follow them until another better belief system will emerge to replace them.  Now its your turn to decide whether you want to be one of those Intellectuals or one of those Pagans.

                    If He created anything and you respect him, it means you should respect everything he has created, right?
                    In this case, why not try to respect grammar, for instance
                    ("Scientists Is Discovering Things Of The Bible")???
                    After this we could try and discuss real matters, not fantasies and utopias.

                      If pointing out mistakes in grammar makes your day more pleasant, I hope you have a happy and fun day. I am sure imperfections in grammar does not disrespect God in any way at all.
