Hidden in the truth is the fact that giants not only existed but most likely ruled and controlled lesser men due to both their physical as well as their mental superiority. Yet the truth remains: Those legends, myths, and oral traditions may not be so farfetched as you have been taught, and even would prefer to think. Steve Quayle from his book Genesis 6 Giants - Volume 2
Authors such as Tom Horn, Steve Quayle and L.A. Marzulli and others have in the past few years researched and explored heavily, running down rumors and facts, the truth behind a biblical puzzle found in an early chapter of Genesis. In so doing they have popularized the obscure Bible teaching (one chapter, four verses) that apparently, at one time fallen angels mated with human women to produce a race of giants. Steve Quayle with Klaus Dona in the first video below discussing this very topic and much, much more.
When the book of Genesis in Chapter Six tells the story of “the sons of God (6:4)” who came into the daughters of men and bare children by them, some take it with a grain of salt saying, “Can’t be.” Because, “…angels neither marry nor are given in marriage (Mt 22:30, Mr 12:25).” That seems logical and is generally the belief of older Christians, though with exceptions, but is that the end of the story? It is also generally accepted giants were usually evil creatures. Why would God permit it?
Though there is an arguable question as just exactly who the “sons of God” were, the Bible is clear and unequivocal when it states, “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that (6:4),” so those who take the Book of God literally believe that not only did monstrous creatures exist that reached possible heights of 36’, who populated and wreaked havoc upon the earth but that they may have also reproduced after their kind. When we come to secondary reproduction however, “therein lies the rub.” The definition of “sons of God” is debated daily, but the idea that reproduction was possible by offspring identified as giants causes biological problems.
Our farmer and rancher forefathers had no trouble in believing that different species could interbreed, as long as they were from the same “family (angels and human??)” These Westerners didn’t have to be scientists or even speculate, because chances were they had a couple of them out in the corral. The pack-mule who facilitated the settling of the Wild and Wooly West is the prime example of “cross-breeds.” With “hybrid vigor” the mule was famous for its ability to traverse long and far while carrying extra-heavy loads, thus making them a favorite work animal in pioneer America.
“A mule is a sterile hybrid of a male donkey and a female horse. Mules are smaller than horses but stronger than donkeys, making them useful as pack animals,” we are informed by Wikipedia. Please note the “sterile” note. The sterility factor may or may not play a role in properly understanding the biblical narrative. Seems it comes down to the number of chromosomes. Middle and High School biology teaches (at least it used to) that in order for creatures of the same genus but of different varieties or species to reproduce, the chromosome count must be the same.
In other words, if we want to cross animals we will only have success with animals closely related enough to have the right “chromo-count.” If not there will be no offspring. As a side note an interesting read is found at Listverse where we find descriptions of Zebroids (male zebra is crossed with a female animal from the equidae family), a Dzo (a Yak and a cow), a Cama (lab created cross between a camel and a Lama) and several other weird results of things that God did not create.
But what of giants? Because hybrids are usually sterile (no reproduction by the product), how were there giants “…and also after that (Ge 6:4)?” Are we to believe “fallen angels” have the same chromosome count as human women? Or, is the explanation found in the possibility there was not just one incursion of angelic beings coming to earth and corrupting the human genome? The book of Enoch (not Scripture) tells the story in Chapter Six of Semjaza (the leader) and 199 more fallen angels, descending on Mount Hermon in Israel with the express purpose of mating with human women,
“Enoch 6:1 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto 2 them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men 3 and beget us children.”
The question now becomes, “Was this the first and only incursion of fallen angels or were there subsequent appearances of more angels? If the transgressions continued, then we might conclude the giants found “after that” were of later connections which would solve the hybrid problem i.e. there would be no problem. Another puzzle however remains. If it was God’s purpose for men to live on the earth and for angels to inhabit the heavenly realms, then why would He have created the same chromosome count in both beings (angels and humans)? Wouldn’t it have been simpler to just vary the count enough so that reproduction would be impossible? Also, why would God have permitted it at all?
The answer might possibly be found in a generally neglected, and sometimes ignored or even “covered up” passage way over in the Old Testament book of Isaiah. In Isaiah 45:7 we read,
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
When this writer was a young Christian we went to our Pastor and asked about the puzzling verse. Not getting a satisfactory answer, we turned to another Pastor acquaintance and the general answer was “Here the Bible is speaking of a moral evil,” whatever that means. To our simple mind evil is evil and it’s unnecessary to draw fine distinctions as to its particular sense. In other words, if God said He created evil that settles it. We don’t have to make excuses for Him or try to explain away His “lack” of wisdom in actually going out and creating evil. To our mind it is perfectly logical that God would create evil.
For example if He wanted His people to truly love Him, and not for a superficial reason, it would make sense that an opportunity to not love Him had to exist. In other words if a prospective groom gives his bride-to-be the right to reject him in favor of another man, yet she rejects the other and sticks with him, he can be reasonably sure her love is true. When it comes to the supernatural though, you either love God or you don’t. There is no middle ground. God gave man free will and as such, man has to have the ability to turn his back on his maker and choose evil. Satan did that when he rebelled and took a third of heaven with him, but how could have the Devil chosen evil if evil didn’t exist? When God tells us in Eph 3:9 and Re 4:11 Jesus created ALL THINGS He was not speaking in jest. God created evil. He said He did.
But how does this relate to the question of giants? Let’s assume, at least for a moment, that like most hybrids, the progeny of fallen angels and human women were sterile and not able to reproduce. If that was the case then later incursions of giants would have to be the result of the long patience of God in allowing more and more human women to be tempted with coupling with giants, knowing full well the expected result. All they had to do was to look about and observe the giant children in the community and then make their choice. But there still remains another problem. There were also families of giants. We find that recorded in the book of Numbers,
Nu 13:33 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.
If Anak had sons then Anak was not infertile and neither was his wife. Was Anak a hybrid? Without doubt, but Anak was able to have children. There were also tribes of giants called Zamzummims and others called Emims and then we had “Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants,” not forgetting Goliath who tried to kill David and more giants after that. In conclusion then, we may assume that giants were doubtless hybrids but the angelic chromosome count was the same as humans or they would not have been able to produce giant children in the first place.
In our modern world we also receive scattered reports of sightings of “Bigfoot” and “Sasquatch” mostly in the Northwest United States and also in Canada (“strangerdimensions.com” reports 4 alleged sightings so far in 2017). In Asia the tales of the “Yeti” help warm the air around the campfires near the frozen Far East tundra and mountains and it seems logical that perhaps these possibly mythical creatures could be remnants of the ancient races of giants that populate stories in our Bibles. In both American and Asian accounts we are informed the creatures are much larger than men and would probably qualify as giants. If indeed the sightings are actual, we would probably rule out continued incursions of fallen angels and instead assume the “chromo count” is such that allows reproduction.
We should then also consider folklore where obvious fakes abound. One example is the mythical Minotaur with the head of a bull and the body of a man. No corpus remains have ever been found and unless Biology is a completely phony science, none ever will. Following is a small sample from a Wikipedia entry describing a few more of the concoctions.
• Centauroid Anggitay - A strictly-female creature that has the upper body of a human with the lower body of a horse and is sometimes portrayed with a horn. Centaur - A creature that has the upper body of a human with the lower body of a horse Onocentaur - A creature that has the upper body of a human with the lower body of a donkey. Ipotane - A human with the hindquarters of a horse.
Goat Faun - A goat with a human head, which is considered harmless. Pan - he is the god of hunters and nymphs who has the head of a human with the arms and legs of a goat. He is often heard playing a flute. Satyr - A goat with a human head, usually with bad intentions. Sileni/Silenus - like a satyr but with horse features.
We should note in the case of a satyr, there is some question as to the reliability of the Wiki-writer because the Bible speaks of such a creature actually existing:
Isa 34:14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.
It seems apparent that for our good (despite what we might want to believe), God created evil and part of that manifestation was the allowing of fertile, fallen angels to cohabitate with human women and to produce children to test the consciences and morals of the race.
Ge 6:1 ¶ And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men 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, 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 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.
