The stark reality of the ancient giants & gods: a merger of religious texts & scientific evidence
Many seekers of the truth have been struggling to believe in the past existence of the giants and gods of olden times, and make a connection with GOD and our present-day life.
Scientific scholars, and those who have a special calling have been busy trying to connect the ancient reality of these beings with the reality our present-day life—and prove that they actually existed like we exist today.
Since a broad explanation seems to be unavailable at present, quite an appreciable number of people in many spheres (especially religious) of life still doubt the reality of the ancient giants and superhuman beings or gods. It’s quite unfortunate that disbelief still lingers on irrespective of the fact that physical and scientific evidence points to an obvious reality of life in the distant past that cannot just be thrown away forever.
Even though the ancient giants and gods committed evil acts and wore garments of ungodliness on Earth, it is fruitless to just overlook (or accept as fiction) the past period of time when their activities peaked.
If we cannot accept the ancient giants and gods as beings who were created by GOD and lived before disappearing from the face of the Earth; if we refuse to accept that they came into being as naturally as mankind did, even when religious texts and scientific evidence have proven all else, then there will always be disagreements and misunderstandings about their existence in the remote past.
It must be clearly noted that the existence of gigantic and superhuman beings (probably what religious texts refer to as “gods”) in past ages has been substantiated to a great extent by many archaeological/scientific findings.
Because of this, quite a number of people have come to agree—like the ancient Greeks and Sumerians—that giants, and gods with spiritual or superhuman powers once existed in remote ages and held sway in many earthly activities; belief in the reality of these beings is becoming widely accepted because science has been presenting strong evidence.
However, on one side there are people (religious, or irreligious) who still don’t believe in the past existence of giants, superhuman beings or gods, and consider it a hoax; while on the other side there are people who believe in the past existence of giants and gods, respective or irrespective of scientific evidence.
Which side is actually right? This is a question that should be left on the open floor. But regardless of any answer, the truth is that religious texts provide precise information, and science provides fossil evidence of abnormal bone sizes, and evidence of weights of ancient stones and structures that couldn’t have been carried by people who have the stature and abilities of the present-day man and woman.
Selected passages from religious texts
Many religious texts written by authors thousands of years ago—and which ought to take literally—clearly confirm the existence of giants and gods (sons of GOD) in the remote past.
Moses tells us in Genesis 6:4 of the Bible:
- “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.”
Another precise account in Numbers 13:33 states:
- “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.”
Deuteronomy 3:11 clearly provides details that can help us make a rough estimate of the physical sizes of giants:
- “For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it…”.
Selected scientific/archaeological evidences
In contrast to religious texts which provide no physical evidence of ancient giants and gods, archaeologists provide a lot of glaring physical evidence of ancient giants and superhuman beings, or gods.
In recent past centuries, there have been reports and unearthed or discovered archaeological findings that have provided evidence of ancient giant fossil bones, and weights that could only have been carried by ancient superhuman beings or god, rather than human beings:
- the discovery/excavation of flint (massive hard stone) implements near Sasnych (about 4 miles from Safita in Syria).
- the discovery of another set of flint tools at Ain Fritissa (Eastern Morocco).
- “The Stonehenge”, and other megalithic monuments—it is impossible to explain how these structures were created, and how ancient gigantic stone blocks were transported.
When calculations were made on the basis of physical human stature and abilities, it was agreed that the beings who were capable of carrying megalithic implements and tools must have been around 12 ft tall—either giants or gods.
- the remains of an 11 feet tall giant was discovered near “Lovelock cave”, Nevada, U.S.A., in 1904.
- the “Giant of Castelnau”, refers to 3 bone fragments discovered by Georges Vacher de Lapouge in 1890. It was estimated from the bone size that the being who possessed it might have been around 3.5 meters (11½ feet) tall. It is believed that the bones might be the largest of any physical being to have ever existed.
- a 1984 press account mentioned the discovery of bones at a prehistoric cemetery at Montpellier, France. The skulls were reported to be more than 2 feet in circumference; specifically, they were 28, 31 and 32 inches respectively (note that 12 inches = 1 feet). When considered alongside other bones that were collected, it is believed that the bones belonged to a race of beings (or humans?) who might have been between 10 and 15 feet tall.
- etc.—a lot of others, too many too mention.
If we consider passages from religious texts and the physical evidence provided by science, some people would definitely wonder whether the giants or superhuman beings (gods) carried such large quantities of weights, or had such giant bone sizes.
Where the ancient gods sons of the most high and ever-living GOD? And were the giants the direct descendants of the gods or superhuman beings who had awesome physical and spiritual powers? Who knows?
But the giants and gods seemed to be very intelligent beings with great physical power and know-how (or technology) that was far too advanced for the mankind of remote ages to possess.
The Bible is not the only text that makes very clear statements about ancient giants and gods, and contains information about giants and gods (or sons of GOD); this information is also available in many other texts beside the Bible.
In fact many other religious and irreligious texts give descriptions of giants, superhuman men and women, or gods. Also, the authors of different texts lived during widely different times, and in different places; so they couldn’t have been able to communicate with each other and write using a similar tone.
The myths of the Mayas and Incas state that the first race of mankind was created gods; and before the “Great Flood”, there was a race of giants. They called two prominent giants Atlan (Atlas) and Theitani (Titan).
But inasmuch as the giants and gods have been well documented in the realm of sagas, legends, mythologies, and sacred books, they have never been placed on the same level that the gods have been placed on in many texts or sources—the giants could not fly and control the Earth the way the gods did.
Most texts clearly define the giants as offsprings and humble servants of the gods, and carried out allotted tasks within the confines of the Earth.
The only explanation for the construction of ancient gigantic architectonic edifices, and the awesome design of artistically dressed boulders that still marvel people today, is that the beings who erected them were either giants or gods—or at most a combination of both.
It is quite obvious that contrary to speculation in some quarters, humans are not the most intelligent, and mentally or spiritually powerful beings to have been created by GOD in the entire universe.
Anyone who has bread different religious or irreligious texts, and a number of scientific discoveries regarding ancient, well-arranged and accurately-cut giant stones/rocks of giant monsters, amongst others, will find it difficult to accept that human beings constructed these objects ages ago.
The ancient giants and gods are the only reasons for such outstanding archaeological achievements that in the distant past when mankind was much less technologically advanced.
The giants and gods depicted as fantasy in many movies and products of present-day imagination, wouldn’t have stayed in mankind’s consciousness for so long if they were not part of creation.
The gods, whose ancient activities mankind is deeply attracted to, must have been real beings who were much more clever and mightier than mankind; also, they have made a lasting impression on mankind and dominated mankind’s activities and thoughts for many centuries.
