Discussion on Nephilim and giants with “Daily Struggles” 5 of 6

Within this series (which when all segments are posted, you will find here) you will find my discussion with a YouTuber whose pseudonym in Daily Struggles regarding his video The Nephilim.
He described it as “This is a video about the history, genealogy, purpose, and correlation of said entities throughout history and into the modern times. Enjoy.”

Picking up where we left off…

Friend, I too have enjoyed the conversation and consider this iron sharpening iron. I will just warn you about jumping through the hoops that neo-pop-researchers have laid out for us since most of them are off into sci-fi land. If any EVER can show any evidence of post-flood Nephilim then please let me know because one thing that you should be able to discern as you keep listening to them is that NO ONE CAN and so they fill this gigantic gap with word games, moving goal posts, smoke and mirrors, etc. (I will write a comment to the Skiba video at his channel on the link you sent so as to not turn it into your problem but please do read it there).

But you are killing me by biding me farewell and then posting what amounts to an essay so here we go again.

Why on Earth would I say that Jude 1:14-15 is rubbish? And it is shocking and insulting that after we both engage these issues in detail you say “Until you decide to do some digging of your own” wow! Please see my books which related to these issues:
“In Consideration of the Book(s) of Enoch” (wherein I specifically deal with the Jude statement and how this version of Enoch contradicts the Bible)
“What Does the Bible Say About Angels?”
“What Does the Bible Say About Demons?”
“What Does the Bible Say About the Devil Satan?”
“On the Genesis 6 Affair’s Sons of God: Angels or Not?”
“Cain as Serpent Seed of Satan” (which is a five-volume set)
“The Paranormal in Early Jewish and Christian Commentaries”

So yeah, I decide to do some digging of my own starting many years ago and I am still at it.

I already posted old newspaper accounts of giant bones (“Giant skeleton reports in old newspapers”: https://truefreethinker.com/articles/giant-skeleton-reports-old-newspapers). You must keep in mind that these are just that, newspaper reports mostly stating that Joe Blow claims he found big bones and may even have them, that Prof. so and so is looking them over and generally no follow up since news is news and just keeps moving on. Most of those bones turn out to be dinosaur or pachyderm. Please, I beg you, see the following since I have done my own digging on this as well, “Grading the giant human skeleton chart”: https://truefreethinker.com/articles/grading-giant-human-skeleton-chart

You do not seem to be incorporating some key points I have noted since, for example, it is meaningless to say “my understanding is that not (all) nephilim were giants” since “giants” is a generic term: what do you mean by it specifically? Do you know the average height of Hebrews of biblical days? Do you know that the Bible only specifies the heights of three people? Without answering these then you cannot even begin to speak of “giants.” And your understanding should be that NONE of the Nephilim were even one inch taller than average since the Bible provides us zero physical description of them (we have already gone over this).

The reason why “the history with all the texts from around the world…tell the same story” is that after the dispersal of humanity all around the world after the Tower of Babel event, shared history came to be called myth and legend—but the key portion of the history, the partis pre-flood.

Asking “How are the raphiem different?” than Nephilim is like asking how are you different from cows: you just are and they just are. Nephilim were pre-flood offspring of Angels and humans, Rephaim are post-flood people (good ol’ fashioned humans)—period. The problem, which I pointed out from day one, is that someone made the tragic mistake of translating “Nephilim” and also “Rephaim” as “giants” which leads people like you to chase the English word “giants” around the Hebrew Bible and so you connect together things that the Hebrew Bible never does.
You ask “What about Nimrod” well, what about him?
You ask about “King og of bashan” again, what about him?
And “Goliath, etc.” so, what about him?
There is zero indication that any of them were Nephilim—period. There is no indication that Nimrod was even one inch taller than average, there is no indication of that about Og either (you would have to demand that you can know his personal size from the size of his bed: hey, my bed is five times wider than I am) and even if he was 12-14 ft. tall so what? Height has NOTHING to do with Nephilim—period. Greek and Hebrew manuscripts differ about Goliath’s height so that he was either just shy of 7 ft. or just shy of 10 ft. and since the average Hebrew male was 5.5 ft. (so women were shorter) then even a guy who is just shy of 7 ft. would be an oddity. But again, his height has NOTHING to do with Nephilim.
