    Default The Giants: The Nephilim Antediluvian Civilization

    The Giants | The Nephilim Antediluvian Civilization | Pre Flood | Documentary Best Evidence 2017

    The Nephilim, the product of the sons of god mingling with the daughters of Adam, the great Biblical giants, “the fallen ones,” the Rephaim, “the dead ones”—these descriptions are all applied to one group of characters found within the Hebrew Bible. Who are the Nephilim? From where do the “heroes of old, the men of renown” come? Genesis 6:1–4 tells the readers that the Nephilim, which means “fallen ones” when translated into English, were the product of copulation between the divine beings (lit. sons of god) and human women (lit. daughters of Adam). The Nephilim are known as great warriors and Biblical giants (see Ezekiel 32:27 and Numbers 13:33). It was once claimed that the mating of the sons of god and the daughters of Adam that resulted in the Nephilim caused the flood, and this caused the Nephilim to have a negative reputation. This was believed because the next verse (Genesis 6:5) is the introduction to the flood narrative and because their name means “fallen ones.” It is unlikely that this interpretation is correct because Genesis 6:4 presents nothing but praise for the Nephilim and no criticism is present. In addition, the name “fallen ones” is likely a reference to their divine paternity transforming—falling—into the human condition, albeit an almost superhuman condition.

    Interesting stuff, has some overlap with what I'm currently writing up. Things got out of hand quickly. Now at 30 Word-doc pages and haven't processed everything.

    It is such a remarkable part of our history. And there's a lot more to be said.

    Well Chris, a guy 9 feet tall will weight a lot.

    Seriously, fascinating subject. There seems to be lots of evidence pointing straight to the reality of giants in our past. So, so many stories in newspapers before censorship took place. Many tales of the Smithsonian hiding evidence in their deepest vaults. No doubt if the stories are true the Vatican is hiding some of it too.

    Ha Ha my friend.
    If the gravity was less way back then that would help to explain bigger beings.
    There was an experiment some time a go.
    Birds were put in a vacuum and the pressure reduced then the density of the air was too thin for flight.
    Now if the density of the air was thicker at one point in time--heavier animals could perhaps fly.

    Back in the early days you had 6 foot wing spanned dragonfly's o.0

    Correction:
    Quote Meganeuridae: It was one of the largest known insects that ever lived, with a reconstructed wing length of 330 millimetres (13 in), an estimated wingspan of up to 710 millimetres (28 in), and a body length from head to tail of almost 430 millimetres (17 in)."

    My memory has a 6 foot spanned one, well?

    Slap a saddle on a 12 foot long centipedes, wow what a smooth ride that would be

    Watching basketball news lately and the story of a 7'6" player was very interesting. He plays for the Boston Celtics D League team and may well go to the top pro level. It's astounding watching him stand almost flat footed and dunk the ball. What must life be like being that tall. I have a few minor issues at 6'4", but 7'6"? Customized everything, I'm guessing.

    Of course if everyone was extremely tall, perhaps like our fabled giants, everything would be proportional and no problem.

    @ Comk. it seems that if we grow to great heights "naturally" we function well...if it is causeds by disease like gigantism or thyroid or other glandular issues....the organs and skeleton does not seem to keep a balance and they tend to die young. Imagine being 8ft tall with the liver function of someone who is 5ft 5....

    I would expect that any of the giants captured in Afghanistan or even ancient remains that have been secreted away will produce some nightmare level super soldiers.....probably microchipped for conyrol as from most accounts they are total rage monsters and insane

    Certain environments on earth have been known to have contributed to gigantism in species. In what is today the Sahara desert for example. When it was ocean what sea life did live there was much bigger than same species elsewhere in the world. Also, hybrids can at times become bigger than both parents. Ligers for example can not only be reproduced by the mating of lion and tiger but how you do it determines if the offspring is bigger or not. Taking this a step further we could say the Wolverine is a member of the weasel family and the largest making it supremely capable and with few natural enemies. If a wolverine were to breed with say a badger or even a otter in the right way the potential exists not to just produce viable offspring but also to produce a supreme predator on land, snowy slopes or seas icy or not! It also has the potential to grow bigger than the larger parent of the two.

    In nature we've discovered new species as well as we watch others vanish. It is very possible a hybrid hominid lives right beside of all of us that has evolved much the same by hybridizing to become something else and it could be larger by far if it's sole talent is to hide from it's most dangerous competitor. When you consider the range of the reports of this and the ages they encompass going way back there is obviously at least one other hominid living here and possibly more. One could even be right under our noses that looks like us and acts like us but isn't us with few tells to know who they are.

    One of those tells for human hybrid types is the desire for unnatural things. To remake things in their own image not that of the so called creator! At least as I understand it this is the sole reason many belonging to these religions do everything in reverse to natural. Crowley style everything is reversed. Yes means no, no means yes.
    The genius consistently stands out from the masses in that he unconsciously anticipates truths of which the population as a whole only later becomes conscious! Speech-circa 1937

    I have just finished listening.

    This "video" uploaded has blatantly ripped the lecture of another content creator and placed it into their own video with grossly irrelevant graphics that would confuse people new to the topics discussed, fields of study and controversies, The added truly moronic sound effects and banal music overlays makes for a very frustrating listening experience.

    The actual information, or rather commentary, on Dead Men's Secrets is well thought out and presents fairly well and would serve as a pretty good primer as to issues and concerns facing several academic research communities and explains the crisis of credibility facing many disciplines today. Does seem like source material for Ancient Aliens BEFORE "everything is aliens".

    I would advise to find the original lecture/commentary or even better yet.....read the book.

    As it relates to giants

    1. In our planetary history there has been periods of mega flora and mega fauna......no reason why mega hominids would not exist then.
    It is posited that we had a water canopy surrounding the earth in that time and harmful solar radiation was kept at a minimum, oxygen levels and air pressure were considerably higher. In Lab experiments these conditions show massive mega grown of plants and animals under these very select conditions

    2. If an elephant can exist today........so can giants. The only physiological challenge, as I mentioned in my above post, is a genetic, hormonal or other defects that causes uncontrolled growth........organs, skeleton and muscles do not grow to meet the needs of a giant sized body caused by disease.

    Gravity has little to do with that.....although may have been necessary for creatures like dinosaurs.....if oxygen lvls were the same as they are now. To be blunt it is just wild speculation from, mainstream zoologists and anthropologists.....who are rarely totally correct.

    3. There have been several accounts of modern day giants being encountered all over the world.....some variants as large as 17 ft high. Sasquatch has been reported to be upto 15 ft high by several independent accounts...

    As Graham Hancock and others posit....we go through cycles of massive earth cataclysmic changes wiping out each civilization before it.......who knows the peoples and civilizations that came before us?

    Clearly they knew many things we do not.
