Cemetery of the Giants

Genesis tells of a time, before Noah's flood, when fallen angels put together a plan to corrupt the gene-pool of mankind and create mutant-hybrids called Nephilim.  Throughout history, cultures from around the world tell of a time when there were giants among them.

So is it all true?  Where are these giants today?  We know they were killed in the flood but then Genesis 6 says they came back after the flood too....and Joshua finds giants in the Promised Land when Noah sends him to spy it out.

"There were giants in the earth in those days..." Gen 6:4

It seems that mankind has questioned the reality of the existence of giants at least since giants were mentioned in Genesis.

Nearly every place around the world has legends of giants dwelling in the land. Greek and Roman mythology mentions the Titans and Norse mythology contains stories of the Frost giants of J├Âtunheim.  

Well known first-century Jewish historian Flavius Josephus wrote about the history of the Jewish War in 79 AD and spoke of giants:

"There were giants. Much larger and shaped differently than normal people. Terrible to behold!"

Many of these stories are not limited to the ancient past but are also part of our more recent history.

When Abraham Lincoln made his first visit to Niagara Falls in 1848, he wrote of giants in his notes:

When Columbus first sought this continent - when Christ suffered on the cross - when Moses led Israel through the Red Sea - nay, even when Adam first came from the land of his Maker - then as now, Niagara was roaring here. The eyes of that species of extinct giants, whose bones fill the mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara..."

In his autobiography, "Buffalo" Bill Cody wrote the following words about a legend recounted to him by members of the Sioux tribe.

It was taught by the wise men of this tribe that the earth was originally peopled by giants, who were fully three times the size of modern men. They were so swift and powerful that they could run alongside a buffalo, take the animal under one arm, and tear off a leg, and eat it as they ran. So vainglorious were they because of their own size and strength that they denied the existence of a Creator. When it lighted, they proclaimed their superiority to the lightning; when it thundered, they laughed.

This displeased the Great Spirit, and to rebuke their arrogance he sent a great rain upon the earth. The valleys filled with water, and the giants retreated to the hills. The water crept up the hills, and the giants sought safety on the highest mountains. Still the rain continued, the waters rose, and the giants, having no other refuge, were drowned.

It is interesting that much of giant lore includes descriptions of a flood sent by God (or the gods) to destroy these wicked people. Could it be that while the Bible contains the true history of our past, these groups are simply repeating their own distorted versions of world history prior to and perhaps after the dispersion at Babel?

Many such stories contain exaggerations but is it reasonable to automatically reject every one of these traditions, or, like most legends, is there possibly some truth behind the them, as is often the case?

The Biblical support for the existence of giants is overwhelming although many details as to their nature and number are still debated.  What is perhaps more controversial today is the quest to find giants remains.

Many claims of giant skeletons have been made over the past few centuries, especially in the nineteenth century. 

One such place can be found in Ecuador known as the "The Cemetery of the Giants".

Father Carlos Vaca was a priest in Ecuador in 1964 when villagers contacted him to examine some strange bones that had been found. The bones were eventually taken to Austria for further analysis and would be featured in an exhibit, Unsolved Mysteries. 

The bones were deemed to be human and samples contained a complete shinbone. Whoever belonged to the skeleton stood at a whopping 7.6 meters tall (25 feet). The site of the skeletal discoveries was named Cemetery of the Giants by the locals.

Do I have any doubt there were mutant-humans, perverted by Satanic angels, roaming the earth at one time?

Nope.

Do I believe Satan could use "strange flesh" again in the Last Days when he pulls out all the stops to try to break God's Word and kill as many people as he can before God saves their souls?  Could that strange flesh be giants or also include "aliens" that the people of earth today would totally believe "evolved" as a life form on some distant planet?

Yep.

Do I believe that Jesus maybe hinted to such a time happening again in the Last Days?

Yep...it's very possible.

Matthew 24:37 
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

Genesis 6
9 This is the account of Noah and his family.
Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.

(note that some commentaries translate BLAMELESS as UNCORRUPTED...meaning that Noah's DNA was pure and had not been mingled with the seed of Satan)

Even ol' honest-Abe Lincoln believed there had been giants in the land;

When Abraham Lincoln made his first visit to Niagara Falls in 1848, he wrote of giants in his notes:

When Columbus first sought this continent - when Christ suffered on the cross - when Moses led Israel through the Red Sea - nay, even when Adam first came from the land of his Maker - then as now, Niagara was roaring here. The eyes of that species of extinct giants, whose bones fill the mounds of America, have gazed on Niagara..."
