“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.” (Genesis 6:4)
One of the biggest (yes, that’s a pun) deterrents to believing this biblical passage is the seemingly fairy-tale account of giants. Reports, traces and images of fierce giants terrorizing the local population are found all over the globe from the Old World to the New.
Medical science provides both the evidence and the explanation for giants. Hybridization of genetics.
Cross-breeding of species is known to result in gigantism. The liger, a cross breed of a lion and a tiger, is an example of this dynamic. In lions, the father’s genes encourage growth and mother’s genes limit growth, while the opposite is true of tigers. Therefore, when a male lion with growth-encouraging genes is mated with a female tiger whose genes do not inhibit the rampant growth, their offspring grows exceptionally large.
As with the resolution of the many Cold Case Files, the advent of DNA analysis has allowed scientists to determine that hybridization was practiced by the earliest civilization in Mesopotamia.

[I]in the late third millennium BCE, contemporary cuneiform tablets and seals document intentional breeding of highly valued equids called kungas for use in diplomacy, ceremony, and warfare. Their precise zoological classification, however, has never been conclusively determined. Morphometric analysis of equids uncovered in rich Early Bronze Age burials at Umm el-Marra, Syria, placed them beyond the ranges [i.e. larger than] reported for other known equid species.
We sequenced the genomes of one of these ~4500-year-old equids, together with an ~11,000-year-old Syrian wild ass (hemippe) from Göbekli Tepe and two of the last surviving hemippes. We conclude that kungas were F1 hybrids between female domestic donkeys and male hemippes, thus documenting the earliest evidence of hybrid animal breeding.
The giants resulting from the cross-breeding of human and angels who called themselves gods are commonly depicted in Mesopotamian art but most famously known from Greek legend as the demi, or half, gods. Their maternal mortality allowed for growth and development, up to gigantic proportions and exceptional strength given the time, while their paternal hyper-dimensionality allowed super-natural abilities. Angels / gods are always depicted in legends – and the Bible – as awe-inspiring warriors.
- “…angels, that excel in strength” (Psa 103:20)
- “…angels…are greater in power and might [than humans]” (II Pet 2:11)
- “So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep [guard] the way of the tree of life.” (Gen 3:24)
- “And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.” (Mat 28:2-4)
- “And when the angel stretched out his hand upon Jerusalem to destroy it, the LORD repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed the people, It is enough: stay now thy hand.” (II Sam 24:16)
On the down side, a functional genome only holds a specific number of genes. This leads to adverse effects from intentional breeding. In the push to gather certain genes, other genes are crowded out. A viable organism requires a complete set of chromosomes, called a karyotype. Think of it like playing poker – you need to play with a full deck of cards. Not only the full number of cards, but each of the distinct cards. In the case of humans, we need 23 distinct pairs – 1, 2, 3, and so on.
In the first generation giants, obtaining only one each of the 23 pairs of human genes from Mom and none from Dad would result in the diminution or outright loss of human functions.
Growth inhibitors weren’t the only genes lost in cross-breeding. Like Superman, the giants had their weaknesses, deleterious genetic disorders. This mosaic from a 4th century Roman Villa presents numerous examples.
Giants with single and triple eyes are often reported, these are known birth defects resulting from embryonic developmental disorders or chromosomal abnormalities. In India, children with such birth defects are worshipped.
There is likely a medical reason behind the ancient religious ceremonies requiring constant blood sacrifices to these beings – a need for metabolic components not produced naturally, or in sufficient quantities, or throughout, their long lifespans. This is known to occur in humans.
- Inborn errors of metabolism are genetically based conditions in which necessary enzymes for metabolizing nutrients are lacking because the genes that code for the production of those enzymes are missing or mutated. These are treated by avoiding the problematic foods – as in lactose intolerance – or by consuming or injecting the necessary components like Lactaid, insulin, Vitamin B12, thyroid hormone, etc.
- Blood disorders are genetically based conditions in which necessary blood components are lacking because the genes that code for those components are missing or mutated. Hemophilia was passed down to many royal descendants of Queen Victoria. Porphyria can actually be treated by consuming blood, and may be one source of vampire legends.
Cardiovascular failure from inability to keep pace with the tremendous demand by huge muscles may have been treated with heart transplants, explaining the original reason for cutting a beating heart out of a still-living victim.
Just like you can’t say that a cross-breed liger or a tigon is a lion or a tiger, you can’t say that the new breed of beings are simply bigger angels or humans. These “new things” have their own identity beyond size. We can use the Hebrew word for giant(s), which is nephil(im). However, after the original passage in Genesis 6, the same word nephilim is only used one other time, referring to giants encountered by the Israelites scoping out the land of Canaan, where “great stature” is the indeed the key identifying feature.
“And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw they giants/nephilim, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants/nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” (Numbers 13:32-33)
Focusing our word search elsewhere, we can track the translation of the root word for nephil, which is naphal, or “fall, cast down”. With this in mind, the nephilim are The Fallen Ones. Since the New Testament’s original language is Greek we can’t track the Hebrew words there, but we can follow the context and the same English words. Lucifer, of course, is the prototypical fallen angel.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!…For thou hast said in thine heart…I will be like the most High.” (Isaiah 14:12-14)
“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, [in essence, “You think that’s something? I can top that.] I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” (Luke 10:17-18)
Bear in mind that falling is experienced by the individual, while “casting” is the same action from the perspective of the individual making it happen. Satan is so powerful that he can cast down other angels as defeated enemies.
“And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down.” (Dan 8:9-11)
Humans also fall, and for the same reason – open and deliberate rebellion against Almighty God, which lands them smack in the middle of the nephilim’s camp.
“Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory. The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves…O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths…The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof…” (Isaiah 3:8-14)
“Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the Lord..the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it…For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the Lord.” (Jeremiah 8:12-17)
Jeremiah describes exactly the activity of the nephilim. It should be noted that the Hebrew word for “strong ones” is also translated “of the angels“. And to further make the point, the passage specifies what we have discovered to be angelic beings in the previous post – serpents and cockatrices.
Falling away from God is only one side of the story. The purpose and goal in the action is falling to the other side which strengthens and empowers the enemy.
“Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive certain of the poor of the people, and the residue of the people that remained in the city, and those that fell away [from trusting in God], that fell to [repeated to emphasize trusting in] the king of Babylon…” (Jeremiah 52:15)
But how do angels cross breed with humans? We have explored that, since hyper dimension beings are immortal – changeless – they are incapable of meiosis, the process of halving the number of chromosomes in a cell to create a gamete (N) that combines with another person’s gamete (N) to procreate an entirely new person with the same number of chromosomes (2N) as, and mixed features of, the parents.
But that is just with humans.
As it turns out, meiosis does not have to occur with each partner in sexual reproduction. Nor is the only possible number of chromosomes in a functional cell limited to a set of two (2N, diploid).
In a condition called polyploidy, a functional cell can contain three or more chromosomes per set.
Polyploidy actually occurs naturally in certain human tissues – liver, heart muscle, bone marrow and the placenta – where the additional genes expand the production capability, as in a wartime factory, to quickly and continuously reproduce certain tissues which are most needed to regenerate during routine rapid cell turnover and acute injury reconstruction. Polyploidy also occurs naturally in salamanders, which have the remarkable ability to regenerated highly differentiated tissues for entire limbs.
Polyploidy is found to occur with hybridization and genetic manipulation.
So can hyper dimensionals combine stem cells between themselves to accomplish natality through sexual reproduction of a new, tetraploid individual? We can induce the answer by comparing known processes.
While two sperm can combine to make a complete set of chromosomes, they can’t make a living cell. In the sperm cell, the power-producing mitochondria are in the tail section to provide mobility, and are discarded at the end of the ride once the fuselage delivers the chromosomes to the egg. Only the female’s gamete, the egg cell, maintains possession of mitochondria, the power generators essential for energizing the division of the single cell into billions of newly differentiated and incredibly organized cells.
But, you may point out, stem cells have mitochondria, and in the case of lizards are capable of differentiating into complete organisms. Yes, but only the identical organisms.
On the side, this reptilian capability supports the reports of reptilian hyper dimensional beings. “On earth, as in heaven.” Just a thought.
Our experience with cloning has taught us that only the haploid egg cell is programmed to accept and use DNA different from the diploid stem cell from which the egg was developed.
While a hyper dimension being is capable of reproducing through stem cells that function as a diploid egg cell independently of the parent body, like reptile eggs in water or a bird’s egg, or through the process of budding while still attached to the parent body, like Zeus is reported to have accomplished, only a mortal female is capable of accepting a newly fertilized human egg into her uterus in a process that involves constant turnover of cells, i.e. death and regeneration.
So we induce that an immortal angelic stem cell needs to combine with a mortal haploid female egg in a uterus to make a new cell capable of undergoing the process of cellular multiplication and differentiation to create a brand-new creature.
And this is where the mysterious power of the woman is revealed. Women are essential for the natality that makes new beginnings possible. This is one reason why Messiah is called “the seed of the woman.”
“the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them” (Genesis 6:1-4)
Mural of classic Greek legends of women carried off by gods.
Understanding this small passage is crucial to understanding all the rest of the Bible, which means all of human history involving Satan’s primary strategy to destroy humanity.
Some Bible readers interpret “the sons of God” in this passage as meaning the righteous sons of Seth. That doesn’t even make sense, since they are acting in a most unrighteous way.
So that there is no mistaking this critical information, the sons of God referenced in Genesis 6 are specifically defined in the Bible as the created immortal spirit beings commonly known as angels.
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” (Jude 1:6-7)
“For Christ…quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient…in the days of Noah,” (I Peter 3:18-20)
“God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; and spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly.” (II Peter 2:4-5)
Chromosomes provide vestigial evidence of the damage that occurred when Adam degenerated from immortal to mortal. We know that the Y chromosome is severely stunted when compared to the other chromosomes, appearing to have lost about 90% of the original genes. If the Y chromosome is contributed by the immortal father in its fullness, then the offspring can justly be expected to be a true “superman, German Ubermensch, in [Nazi] philosophy, the superior man…”
Enoch provides information on the circumstances of the angels who left their hyper-dimensional state, and in the process explains that procreation through sexual relations was given to humanity to counterbalance death-imposed loss of population with new generations.
“Then the Lord said to me: Enoch, scribe of righteousness, go tell the Watchers of heaven, who have deserted the lofty sky, and their holy everlasting station / estate, who…have done as the sons of men do, by taking to themselves wives, and who have been greatly corrupted [degenerated from 10 to 4 dimensions] on the earth;” (Enoch 12:5-6)
And go say to the Watcher of Heaven…Why have you left the High, Holy and Eternal Heaven, and lain with women, and become unclean with the daughters of men, and taken wives for yourselves, and done as the sons of the earth, and begotten giant sons? And you were spiritual, Holy, living an eternal life, but you became unclean upon the women, and begot children through the blood of flesh, and lusted after the blood of men, and produced flesh and blood, as they do, who die and are destroyed. And for this reason I give men wives; so that they might sow seed in them, and so that children might be born by them, so that deeds might be done on the Earth. But you, formerly, were spiritual, living an eternal, immortal life, for all the generations of the world. For this reason I did not arrange wives for you; because the dwelling of the spiritual ones is in Heaven. (Enoch 15:2-7)
It is commonly taught that wives and the pleasures of sexual intercourse were not “given” in the sense of a moral law which the angels broke. If we understand what goes on in sexual reproduction we will correctly understand that it was a nature law that the angels sidestepped. They downgraded from their natural hyper-dimensional state to the four dimensions of humanity for the specific purpose of sexual intercourse with women. This is unequivocally laid out by Jude.
“And the angels which
- kept not their first estate / dominion or sphere of activity in the spirit dimension,
- but left their own habitation [of the self / soul] / spirit hyperdimensional body
Note: this information is given to us in prose, NOT poetry, so the poetic style of repeating the same thought with different words is not being used here. “Habitation” is not equivalent to “estate”. Note how this is defined for us internally by the corresponding use of this Greek word in 2 Corinthians 5:2 defining “spiritual body”.
- he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
In this context this logically includes judgment for sexual sin, confirmed as the text goes on to say:
- EVEN [emphasis added] as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
- Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh…
- And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed… (Jude 4-8, 14-15)
Jude’s verbatim quoting from the Book of Enoch provides evidence that this document was accepted as authoritative in Jesus’ day.
“The words of the blessing of Enoch, wherewith he blessed the elect and righteous, who will be living in the day of tribulation…
And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of ⌈His⌉ holy ones To execute judgement upon all, And to destroy ⌈all⌉ the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works ⌈of their ungodliness⌉ which they have ungodly committed, And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners ⌈have spoken⌉ against Him.” (Enoch 1:9)
“…But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, having not “the” Spirit [implying they have, instead, “a” spirit guide].” (Jude 17-20)
Jesus himself must have referenced Enoch in his debate with a group of mockers,
“And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures [inspired holy writings], neither the power [residing in a thing by virtue of its nature, or which a person or thing exerts and puts forth from inside] of God? For when they shall rise from the dead [with new spiritual bodies], they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.” (Mark 12:13-25)
When Jesus defined the angels as those “which are in heaven”, he was implicitly contrasting them with “the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation”. What previous scripture reports this? Only the writings of Enoch, which while included along with the other apocryphal works in the original 1611 Authorized King James Bible have since been eliminated from the current canon of the Protestant Old Testament. What gives with that?
The apocrypha don’t have to be canonized to be accepted as historical and even doctrinal sources. Are Christian authors’ books “God-breathed” like scripture? We accept the writings of Herodotus, Josephus, Tertullian, Augustine, etc. as legitimate historical and even ecclesiastical records of earlier sources now lost to history. The key criteria in any teaching – spiritual, historical, scientific – should be that it sheds light on, without contradicting, scripture.
While ignoring the highly speculative and scientifically unsubstantiated dating of some of the findings, support for the Genesis account of angel/human hybridization is found in all sources of ancient history.
- Ancient legends around the world
- Ancient pagan religious practices like hieros gamos – sexual intercourse between a divine being and a human. While this was – and is – thought to be exploited by humans for their own benefit, it is more credible to track this practice back to a time when it was a reality for the gods’ benefit.
Elongated skulls, allowing for a much larger brain and therefore greater intellectual and possibly even paranormal abilities, may be one evidence of cross-breeding humans with angels. Some of the Egyptian royals has been determined to have elongated skulls, leading to the speculation that the signature elongated Egyptian headdress was originally designed for such skulls.
This and other angelic traits would have been genetically diluted out of existence by successive generations of human breeding once further infusions of angelic genes were taken out of play. The loss of prized traits could be countered by inbreeding, and this is what is found in royal dynasties from ancient through modern times.
Even after the actual genes were gone, the association of elongated heads with the royal hybrids is likely the reason for the practice of head-binding infants, found in cultures all around the world.
