Completing the research for The Blood Tears Of Jesus has drawn me closer to God. For example, part of the book is about giants. As I kept running across articles about archaeological digs in the United States and many other countries that uncovered huge skeletons, some 40 feet tall, my mind kept going back to the Mighty men in Genesis 6 and Goliath of Gath that David killed with a slingshot and the intimidating creatures that Moses’ spies saw in the promised land. It’s enough to keep the atheists up at night because even if they don’t want to believe the Bible, they can’t deny the archaeological findings.
“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days–and also afterward–when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.” New International Version.
What did the spies sent out by Moses have to say:
“And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”
Giants did walk among us.
Archaeologists in Bulgaria found the remains of large superhuman skeleton in downtown Varna, a city on the shores of the Black Sea know for legends about giants and ancient wars that featured battles between giants.
Giant bones were also discovered by the anthropologist Georges Vacher de Lapouge at the Bronze Age cemetery of Castelnau-le-Lez, France in the winter of 1890. His findings were published in the journal La Nature, Vol. 18, 1890 Issue 888. The height of the individual was estimated at about 11 ft 6 in according to de Lapouge, and the bones were dated to the Neolithic period, since they were found at the very bottom of the Bronze Age burial tumulus.
In 1833, soldiers digging at Lompock Rancho, California, discovered a male skeleton 12 feet tall. The skeleton was surrounded by caved shells, stone axes, other artifacts. The skeleton had double rows of upper and lower teeth. Unfortunately, this body was secretly buried because the local Indians became upset about the remains.
Near Toledo, Ohio, 20 skeletons were discovered with jaws and teeth “twice as large as those of present day people.” The account also noted that odd hieroglyphics were found with the bodies.
This is a very good source on giants…
