Nephilim as Biblical Myth and Nonsense
by Walter R. Mattfeld
Bible-believers have a problem, the Bible claims only Noah's family survived the flood, so the Nephilim should have been destroyed with no survivors.
For the skeptic (myself) this is not a problem at all. It is merely "proof" of the Bible's not being the word of God, but just nonsense and myth.
The Mesopotamians had similar nonsense myths like the Nephilim. They understood that gods and goddesses on occasion mated with humans and produced offspring who were half-god-half-human.
An example was Gilgamesh, the King of Uruk in Mesopotamia. His father was a human king but his mother was a goddess. This, of course, is nonsense, the same nonsense one finds in the Bible about the Nephilim as angels ("sons of god") who mated with the daughters of men in Genesis 6:1-2.
No one need trouble themselves about anything the Bible says as Science's findings reveal the Bible is wrong about man's origins and the age of the universe.
The Christians, in turn, reworked the mythical nonsense of the Hellenistic Greeks and Jews. From the books of Genesis to Revelation it's all mythical nonsense.
