The Emim, Anakim, Rephaim.

by Paul
(U. K.)

It seems possible that these people(s) are related in some way to the Nephilim. Why are there different names, if they are the same people?

Firstly, it is possible that they were known by different names in different parts of the country.

Secondly, it is possible that the different names relate to the extent to which they have descended from the Nephilim. By this, I mean that if the Nephilim mated and bred with humans, and their offspring mated and bred with other humans, eventually the Nephilim genes may have become "diluted" as the successive generations continued to mate and breed solely with humans.

I was interested by the comment about the fallen angels censoring the Bible to remove any trace of themselves. If this is so, they did not do a very good job of it, as the references still remain! Also, who were/are they who are continuing to censor the Bible?

Regarding the comment about the fact that the Nephilim should have been destroyed in the Flood, the Bible states that all men/mankind were destroyed in the Flood except for Noah and his family. I take this to mean humankind, therefore some, but not all, of the Nephilim could have survived the Flood without it contradicting the Bible's version.

Flood Survivors
by: Jon Meyer

My comment is that in keeping with the whole of scripture these men that survived the flood would have to be one of "eight souls saved" according to 1Pet3:20. So did these part human giants live without souls? If part fallen angels, wouldn’t they be included in the judgment of the flood? The survivorship of giants would not have to be a genetic relationship to a particular lineage but a plentiful environment to thrive, or a suppressed gene God allowed to resurface.

Nephelim , Anakim & Rephaim
by: David Sheriff

All the population was NOT wiped out by the Flood....later it became the job of Abraham to summon an army and kill off those left over in battles near to modern day Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

The DNA, as stated, would have become diluted; and there are giants left today in south western Iran, in the Zagros mountain area.

The impure DNA still around today shows that there are approx 4000 errors in the coding, and that each person on the planet has up to 50 errors in their genetic coding. This is why people have illnesses and sicknesses with the liver, heart, brain, arthritis, bronchitis, bone problems ,etc.

The gene pool was corrupted eons ago.
