The Nephilim

“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.” – Genesis 6:4

In the Christian Bible we are made aware of the Nephilim from the very beginning. Genesis 6:4 speaks of Nephilim who are born of human females but who are Fathered by the sons of God. Who exactly the sons of God are is often the subject of debate, some think they are humans that are descended from the biblical Seth but most understand them to be God’s messengers or Angels. In my opinion it is clear that the sons of God are actually the disobedient rebellious fallen angels (which in my opinion are physical beings  with advanced technology possibly from another planet). Their offence was copulating with human females which resulted in the creation of the monstrous Nephilim race. The Nephilim tipped the natural balance of the Earth, which angered God as went to an awful lot of trouble to create that balance in the first place.

Most ancient myths speak of Gods copulating with human females to produce heroes of great strength. In Irish or Celtic myth, the God of Light known as Lugh (pronounced Loo) has sex with a human female to produce the mighty Setanta. The adventures of Setanta are spoken of even today by the Irish. This myth is mirrored in Greek mythology where Zeus mated with the mortal Alcmene producing the mighty Heracles known as Hercules to the Romans.

The book of Enoch is an ancient text that is still used to this day by the The Ethiopian Orthodox Church who regard it as canonical. Fragments of it were found among the dead sea scrolls and it was quoted from in the New Testament in the Letter of Jude 1:14-15. The book is written by Enoch himself, who used to walk with God, and goes into great detail about the various offices of the angels (both obedient and disobedient).

In Enoch it is clear that it was the angels that mixed their genes with human females to produce the Nephilim. The book states that they lusted after human females, mated with them and took them as wives, however this does not preclude the fact that the act might have been performed artificially in some way. These fallen angels then taught man about farming, medicine, metallurgy, astronomy, astrology and much more. They also taught women how to beautify the eyes with make up (which is hilarious but thank God they didn’t teach it to men).

God was angered by this act as the immortal beings were not allowed to father children.

Personally, I think that this is to religion as the Grand Unified Theory is to physics. It links original sin to eating from the tree of knowledge and explains why the flood happened and why later Joshua was instructed to finish off the lines of the Nephilim.

Consider this theory:

Imagine a world where the humans of the time lived in harmony with nature. The reason they lived in harmony with nature is because they evolved here on this planet in balance with all other creatures. Perhaps we were always meant to be relatively simple Neanderthals with little need beyond survival. A beautiful species on a beautiful planet.

Imagine then a more advanced race (from another planet perhaps) mixing with this life form. What are the implications of this uplifting?

  • It would increasing their brain capacity so that humans would become self conscious and given the knowledge of good and evil.
  • Women may have increased pain in child birth due to unnaturally increased cranium size (Genesis 3:16).
  • We would be stained with the genes of our ancestors, meaning original sin could be handed down from Father to Son.
  • Longevity, the people of the bible lived for approximately 1000 years
  • Cause a rift between God and some of his Angels

In my opinion it was this uplifting that was offensive to God and is the root of all our problems. There are stories of how the Nephilim, because of their size, began usurping all of mans resources, especially food and that eventually when the food ran out they began cannibalism.  Because of the inequities caused by this God decided to reset the planet and caused the flood.  So he selected as pure a human family as he could find and gathered them with the animals and then destroyed the surface of the earth.

Incidentally, at this point God also reduced our live span to approximately 120 years (amazingly accurate when you consider it was written over 2000 years ago).  The easiest way to do this for an entire species is to modify a small sample, kill the rest and repopulate using the modified set, which is exactly what happened according to Genesis.

So what are the Nephilim?  Ancient humans with advanced technology (Atlanteans, Osirians, Ayrians etc.) or beings from another planet or realm?

If the story is true then there was also a policing system for these beings and that is encouraging.

The Earth was a Formless Void!

“In the beginning God created heaven and earth. Now the earth was a formless void…” – Genesis 

‘In the beginning, the Earth was a formless void.’ This amazingly accurate statement was written down 4000-6000 years ago. We know that when our star was born the left over gas and particles orbiting it in space clumped togeer to form bigger and bigger chunks of matter, snowballing until we were left with the set of planets, moons and asteroids that make up our solar system today.

It is safe to say that in the beginning the Earth was indeed a formless void made up of gas and particles, which make the words in Genesis incredible given that the people of the time knew very little if anything about the nature of stars and planets. The wonderful accuracies of Genesis do not end there however. Following is the order of creation as set out by Genesis:

  1. Light – The basic laws of the universe, electromagnetic radiation, gravity, inertia, time… E=mc^2
  2. Water and Land – Before any life came to be on planet Earth, water and land formed
  3. Vegetation – First form of observable (with the human eye) life, presumably on land and under water.
  4. Solar and lunar cycle – We know at some point in time the moon was created from the Earth, possibly down to a asteroid collision. Because of this event the Earth has become a very stable place for life to form. The moon helps keep the Earth warm and gives it a steady wobble and rotation giving us the seasons and regular day and night.
  5. Creatures: Fish, Birds and Land creatures
  6. Man

Given the fact that the people of the time did not know anything about fossil research or carbon dating techniques it is again quite remarkable that they could know these things.

The picture painted by the six days of Genesis is an accurate synopsis of the story of evolution.

The One True Faith

“With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”

– Steven Weinberg, The New York Times, April 20, 1999

Having been brought up Catholic, I have wrestled with faith for the 33 years that I am alive. I have never struggled with the core message of religion i.e. ‘love your neighbour as yourself,’ as I believe this to be the ultimate good teaching, what I do struggle with, however, is how this fundamental tenet can be overridden so that conflicts, caused by nuances in the interpretation of faith, can occur.

We live in a world where tiny differences of opinion cause mighty rifts between peoples. For example, in my own country of Ireland, the conflict between Protestants and Roman Catholics is a perfect example of how things can go terribly wrong.  The two religions differ on some minor points such as: Mary’s eternal virginity; whether or not Priests can forgive sins or not; and whether you are saved based on good works, which demonstrate faith, or faith, which is demonstrated by good works. Yet based on such minor differences, these two peoples, who believe in the core tenet of ‘love thy enemy,’ decided to ignore that rule when it suited them and treated each other with the utmost contempt for centuries.  It is nothing short of tragic madness and hypocrisy of the highest order.

I am not trying to pick on any particular religion or belief system; that is not what this blog is about; rather, it is simply about the merits of exploring the truth by investigating everything and believing absolutely nothing, without solid evidence. So if I could ask you to open your mind whilst reading the blog and try to blank out what society has taught you.

Consider the following statement:

THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUTH

This is true, however this is also the major failing of all religions as most believe that they are the one true way, therefore from their perspective everyone else is absolutely wrong. This is the root problem of all religious conflict.

However, it is also true that there are an infinite set of possible belief systems… at the moment there are several thousand variations of Christianity alone and with the help of individual discernment one could argue that there are 6 billion+ variations currently in existence.

With this in mind from a very basic understanding of algebra it can be shown that the chances of any one of these religions being the right one is practically zero!

For example,

1/1000 = 0.001

Therefore, even if there were only 1000 religions on Earth, it is very likely that YOU ARE WRONG about what you currently believe. I am not saying that you are wrong, but it is very possible that you are, and everyone with an IQ above 0 should acknowledge this!

Would you wager your house on a horse at odds of 1000/1?  If not, then why do most of us bet our lives on something that has much worse odds?

The point I am trying to make here is that believing you are 100% right without 100% evidence is very unwise.

The truly enlightened are those that know that they don’t know.
