Why did the biblical Nephilim become giants among men? The consensus is that they are the progeny of a angelic paternal father and a earthly maternal mother. “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.” – Genesis 6:4. Now, before I proceed with with the dissemination of this mythological garbage, I need to state that I believe in full disclosure so I need to declare that the question above was asked by my wife Elke Lopez. I was highly intrigued, not by the question, because the question is in itself is philosophical and I abhor philosophy but rather by her sound reasoning behind an argument against this purported gigantism. The usual line of thinking is that since the fallen angels were evil, this mixture of spirit and flesh would create malevolent giants only capable of hate and wanton destruction. Gods only course of action; to kill off the entire human race so that the hate that overtook humanity could never happen again. He only spared Noah and his family, via an ark that Noah built. “Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.” – Genesis 7:23. However, my wife, not satisfied with this understanding stated “Why didn’t Jesus become a giant?” This thinking is very interesting. The bible shows what happens when spirit matter meets a human ovum. No one mentioned that Jesus was an unusually large human being, except for the apocryphal Gospel of Peter. Can hate from a spirit creature affect the growth cycle of a human? This line of reasoning becomes absurd when understanding the biology of an animal. The only way growth would be affected is due to the conflation of the two chromosomal providers, which neither happened to both the progeny of God or the fallen angels.
Lets allow the theist their peace in life by allowing this abomination of celestial and terrestrial creation to occur. Lets forget that gigantism is a characteristic that was observed in the beginning, due to the convolution of flesh and spirit. Again, it must be stated that God wiped out humanity because it became intrinsically evil with these monstrous leviathans terrorizing the planet. But, if this is the case, why did God allow his angels to again infect humanity with their ethereal sperm, after the flood? “We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). “We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.” – Numbers 13:33. I use the word sperm as a substitution to immaculate conception. The bible never states that they assumed human bodies, contrary to popular belief. Did God allow for this mythological calamity to befall humans once again, for the second time, after the flood? What was the purpose of the flood? Did the angels disobey God once again without fear? Did they not know what happened to their fallen brothers? If God cannot keep his house in order, how can we have “faith” in the belief that he can rectify the supposed hell on earth? This predicament is a reaffirmation of what we all secretly know God to be. Not God at all. Immaculate conception was not a concept original to Yahweh. The demons did it first.
