More in Old Kentuck

They were here, but where did they come from, and who were they?

More in Old Kentuck

At the summit of Big Hill in the Cumberland Mountains in Jackson County, Kentucky, is a layer of carboniferous sandstone. In the 1880's it was crossed by a wagon trail that in time broke up the surface of the rock. When the resulting bebris was cleared away, a series of tracks was discovered in this carboniferous layer about 300 million years old. There were imprints of bear, something resembling a large horse, and two "tracks of a human being, good sized,toes well spread, and very distinctly marked." The prints were examined by prof,J.F.Brown of Berea College,Kentucky. (The American Antiquarian,7:39,January 1885)

I think they just might have a hard time explaining it ...

Genesis Chapter 6, verses 1 through 4 mentions Nephilim:

"Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

They are mentioned again in Numbers chapter 13, verses 32–33, in a description of the inhabitants of Hebron:

"So they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, "The land through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size. There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.

There are five common views regarding the identity of the Nephilim.

1. They were the hybrid offspring of fallen angels and human women.
2. They were the offspring of descendants of Seth with those of Cain.
3. Webster's 1913 Dictionary defines the word simply as "Giant." Thus, any especially tall, powerful, large, or mighty man would be described in ancient times as Nephilim. Nephilim may simply mean "giant," champion, or strong man.
4. The term might not refer to any specific race or group of people but is a label similar to "hero," a legendary figure, or "great man." The Bible itself describes the Nephilim as "Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown." In this view, the Bible tells us that Nephilim is a legendary or heroic figure, a mighty warrior, already renowned in legend by the time Genesis was written. Using the Bible to define itself, Nephilim means a man of legend, one recounted in legendary tales.
5. They are not historical figures and are ancient imagery with questionable meaning.

... or a sixth idea that they were the results of a hybrid being as a cross between human women and extra terrestrials.

Of course they would have to rewrite history or as so many do... ignore and deny.
