Who Were The Giants?


“There were giants (nephilim) 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.” – Genesis 6:4


The Bible says in various passages that giants existed upon the earth in olden times. The Jewish apocryphal work The Book of Giants, which was found at Qumran, has many details not found in the Bible with respect to those giants. For example, see the following link for a  picture of Nefertiti and her husband, the pharaoh Akhenaten, holding adult humans:


Those very same giant Egyptians visited the Grand Canyon in ancient times and left behind lots of artifacts. Places around the Grand Canyon even have Egyptian names. To see what  those Egyptians looked like check out a life-size statue at the Grand Canyon at the following link:


In recent times, they have found lots and lots of skeletons – all over the world. See the following link: http://www.ancientpages.com/2014/04/29/giants-did-exist-and-were-a-part-of-earths-ancient-history/ There are also artifacts from ancient Sumeria picturing the Sumerian gods next to humans. Same thing. They were giants too. And of course, then there was Goliath who was a little fella by comparison. That’s what you get when the gene pool gets watered down over many generations.

The tallest man, according to the Guinness Book of Records, was about nine feet tall and once lived in Illinois. Of course, they have only been keeping track for some 70 years or so. Whatever, I would have loved to have had a “big” brother that tall.


The eyes of that species of extinct Giant, whose bones fill the Mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara, as ours do now.

    During my book research, here is something I came across.

    In the Book of Enoch (NOT the bible), he talks about the “Watchers” (bad/fallen angels led by Azazel, one of the many names for “Satan”) who left heaven to mate with the “daughters of men” and ended up producing the Nephilim, a hybrid race of giants.

    Of course, there’s much more to the story, but I thought I’d mention this as an answer to your post question.

      Excellent point. The Book of Enoch is a great resource on ancient giants and was used as source material for the movie “Noah.”

        Didn’t see it … but I’m sure “the faithful” believed every word of it and were more-than-certain it contained true and genuine bible facts.

        By the Noah movie, it’s the 2014 version. Since some of the movie was based on the Bible on some on the Book of Enoch, I’m sure the average viewer had no idea that it wasn’t totally based on the Bible.

        I’ll try to find it on Netflix. Should be an interesting watch. 🙂
