Were there giants on the Earth?

Myths from all over the world talk about a race of giants that once inhabited the land. These stories come from the Middle East, Africa, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. These giants were called the Titans by the Greeks, Nephilim by the Hebrews, and Daityas by Hindus.

With so much mythology spread over a large area of the world, could there be some truth to these stories? The first thing that points in favour of such stories originally coming from real giants are fossils in the Earth. We know there was a time when animals were giants including dinosaurs six stories high, dragonflies that were ten times larger than today, and birds with wingspans up to 30 feet wide. So it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine there could exist giant humans if humans existed in prehistoric times.

But is there evidence for giant humans? The following video looks at this subject from a biblical view point as that book contains many references to giants on the earth. For example according to Numbers 13:33, we read:

The Lord said to Moses, “Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites” … So they went up and spied out the land … And they told him: “… Yet the people who live in the land are strong, and the towns are fortified and very large; and besides, we saw the descendants of Anak there.” … So they brought to the Israelites an unfavorable report of the land that they had spied out, saying, “The land that we have gone through as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people that we saw in it are of great size. There we saw the Nephilim (the Anakites come from the Nephilim); and to ourselves we seemed like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them.”

When people began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that they were fair; and they took wives for themselves of all that they chose. Then the Lord said, “My spirit shall not abide in mortals forever, for they are flesh; their days shall be one hundred twenty years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went in to the daughters of humans, who bore children to them. These were the heroes that were of old, warriors of renown.

The word Nephilim is loosely translated as ‘giants’.

    Yes giants existed. No they were not aliens, or half breeds, and the book of Enoch is not the word of God but that of Jews who completely abandoned God.

    Hi t8,

    I didn’t say anything about Sons of God yet, I said the giants were not aliens, and that would be because they were humans.

    As for Sons of God, those that are “led by the Spirit of God”, can be extraterrestrial or they can be terrestrial. One thing that is for certain is that a Son of God would not be called such if he wasn’t being led by the Spirit.  Another thing that is for certain according to God is that His created creatures on earth reproduce after their own kind.

    13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

    Deuteronomy 7: 3Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, 4because they will turn your sons away from following Me.

    Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: 20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days:

    Psalms 82: 1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. 2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. 4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. 5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. 6 I have said, Ye are gods; and ALL OF YOU are CHILDREN OF the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

    The below passage is all about humans, men who are led by the Spirit, but then God’s Spirit does not always strive because man is indeed flesh, weak with temptation, and will be led astray by that temptation. Beautiful ladies have cause many of men to be led astray, the very reason why God didn’t want Israel to intermarry with heathens. 

    Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men (adam -humankind) began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God (elohiym) saw the daughters of men (adam -human kind) that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man (adam- humankind), for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God (elohiym) came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men (‘enowsh -mankind, mortals) of renown. 5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man (Adam- humankind) was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man (Adam -humankind) on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man (Adam- human kind) whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

    NOTICE that the imagination of the thoughts of man’s heart is evil continually. Man’s own imagination and his thoughts of his own heart are the issue.

    In scripture they came from the union of the sons of God and the women of men,

    So their dads were aliens?

    Hi t8,

    Genesis 6 is speaking of humans, there is NO speaking of any other type of creature. The chapter is about how humans (Adam) began to multiply, and when the Sons of God -righteous men made union with non righteous woman and had children, corruption became profound on the earth. The children are called  mortal humans not halfbreeds, and once again this chapter specifically is talking about humans multiplying and HUMAN wickedness.  God says He was sorry that He made humans. By their imagination and thoughts of their own heart they were wicked. We see this later in scripture as well, men of God being corrupted by marriage to heathens.

    God warns man in scripture that if he does not follow God’s ways his days will not be prolonged. If man follows God his days are prolonged. We see men before and after the flood who live for hundreds of years, the more you are led by the Spirit the longer you will live.

    Genesis 3:And the LORD said, My Spirit shall not always strive (govern) with man, for that he also is flesh (to go estray, commit sin): yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

    diyn — to judge, to govern

    Shagag –to go astray, err, commit sin or error

    4 There were giants 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. 5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

    Some aliens didn’t come down to earth and mate with humans and then have human children, and then the earth was corrupted.

    Beautiful ladies enticed the Sons of God and they were led astray, and by their HUMAN children multiplying on the earth wickedness on earth became great.

    Either God made creatures to reproduce after their own kind or He did not. We know absolutely He did, and we know that in order to create a human child you need a male gamete and a female gamete joining together. The entire passage from verse 1 to verse 7  is about humans, mortal humans, them multiplying, their wickedness becoming great, and then God wanting to destroy them.
