On Adam Schwartzbauer’s article “The Truth About Giants,” 4 of 4

Concluding a consideration is Adam Schwartzbauer’s article The Truth About Giants. When all segments are posted, you will be able to find them here.

Schwartzbauer also tells us of “Strange skulls…found around the world, including Mexico and Peru. These skulls are larger than normal skulls and are elongated” and that these are “from giants.”
There are three main claims about such skulls: they are due to genetic problems, which we can verify, due to head boarding, which we can verify, or “from giants,” which—wait!!! If you have ever seen images of these skulls there is a textbook classic case of a non sequitur. I will use LA Marzulli as an example since he is well known for claiming that the elongated skulls are Nephilim giants’ skulls.

A choice must clearly be made: either the skulls are form Nephilim but Nephilim can no longer be referred to as “giants” or Nephilim were “giants” but these skulls are not from them—oh, I can hear it now, “But, but, but, like, all of those elongated skulls from various countries around the world just so, coincidentally, happen to be of young Nephilim and, like, the giants ones of adult Nephilim are, like, in the Vatican and the Smithsonian’s Indiana Jones-like vaults and stuff!!!
At some point one must step away from oh, so very exciting theo-sci-fi and face reality.

One thing Adam Schwartzbauer has not done it tell us why he thinks that Nephilim were “giants” but it is due to two things: he read a rebuked “evil report” in Numbers 13:3 and, beyond all reason, actually believe it—and since that is the only biblical physical description of Nephilim it means that we have no reliable physical description of them—and because he mistakenly think that anyone who is called “giant” is related to them—which is also exclusively based on Numbers 13:33.

I should note that I have no dog in this fight: speaking of, the last time I listened to Gary Wayne he actually claimed that there are “Nephilim dogs” which is the bottom of theo-sci-fi barrel—it is the Tartarus of the theo-sci-fi Abyss
But I do have a God in this fight and that compels me to seek truth and not theo-sci-fi. If there ever existed/exist people who were 10, 20, 30 ft. tall or more then my opinion is: good for them! What do I care?

My book What Does the Bible Say About Giants and Nephilim? contains everything from old newspaper accounts to various claims of seeing and excavating “giants.”

Adam Schwartzbauer goes on to quote Flavius Josephus’ Antiquities, 5.2.3, “a race of giants, who had bodies so large, and countenances so entirely different from other men, that they were surprising to the sight, and terrible to the hearing. The bones of these men are still shown this very day, unlike to any credible relations of other men” but, again, how did Josephus know they were human or half-human Nephilim bones and not those of various animals?

He informs us “It appears from various records that giants are also alive today. For example, in the Solomon Islands, there may be a race of giants living today.” But why “may be”? This is not ancient times when a sovereign would have to fund an expedition: Schwartzbauer could just buy a plane ticket or start a Go Fund Me campaign, go there, and show us the giants.

He also wrote this flummoxing sentence, “Giants were cannibals; it appears that cannibalism started with giants, who spread it to others. Luke 17:26 says: “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.” Daniel 2:43 says: “…they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave to one another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” Will the Nephilim be involved in the coming of the antichrist?”
No, Luke and Daniel do not state a single word about cannibalism, not is there any indication that the “giants” mentioned in the Bible were cannibals (even if they were).
The Luke text is one of the most abused, misused, misinterpreted, misunderstood, and misapplied amongst pop-researchers. Jesus’ reference to the days of Noah is clearly just about people going about as business as usual while being unaware of coming judgement. And you can know that by reading the whole statement Jesus made and also the one He made in Luke 17 about how “it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

I covered the Daniel text in detail in chapter “Daniel’s ‘They’ and the ‘Seed of Men’” of my book What Does the Bible Say About Giants and Nephilim?—see, I have done all of this already so, get the book ;o)
It is just an odd, to our ears, manner whereby to note that two people groups will do business but not intermarry.

Astonishingly, Adam Schwartzbauer ends with “Some say it’s not theologically important whether the sons of God were the angels or not. It was the reason the flood was sent. It was why Saul was told to kill all the inhabitants. It was why Sodom and Gomorrha were destroyed. It may play a big role in the future tribulation. I’ll let you decide.”
So, “the reason the flood was sent” was “the sons of God were the angels” and their offspring were the Nephilim but God must have failed since “Saul was told to kill all the inhabitants—and there is zero indication that Nephilim had anything to do with Sodom and Gomorrha, of course. And if Nephilim “may play a big role in the future tribulation” then, guess what, God failed with His waste of a flood, and failed via Saul, and failed when destroying Sodom and Gomorrha and this is the ultimate outworking of theo-sci-fi: implications that God failed and that is what is “theologically important.”

Lastly, his go-to sources include Stephen Quayle, Chuck Missler, Thomas Horn, Patrick C. Heron, Erich von Däniken, and Russ Dizdar. In short, see my bok Nephilim and Giants as per Pop-Researchers: A comprehensive consideration of the claims of I.D.E. Thomas, Chuck Missler, Dante Fortson, Derek Gilbert, Brian Godawa, Patrick Heron, Thomas Horn, Ken Johnson, L.A. Marzulli, Josh Peck, CK Quarterman, Steve Quayle, Rob Skiba, Gary Wayne, Jim Wilhelmsen, et al.—and Fifty Shades of Gray Aliens for Däniken related issues.
