(856.6) 77:2.3 The post-rebellion era on Urantia witnessed many unusual happenings. A great civilization — the culture of Dalamatia — was going to pieces.
“The Nephilim (Nodites) were on earth in those days, and when these sons of the gods went in to the daughters of men and they bore to them, their children were the ‘mighty men of old,’ the ‘men of renown.’”
While hardly “sons of the gods,” the staff and their early descendants were so regarded by the evolutionary mortals of those distant days; even their stature came to be magnified by tradition. This, then, is the origin of the well-nigh universal folk tale of the gods who came down to earth, and there with the daughters of men begot an ancient race of heroes.
And all this legend became further confused with the race mixtures of the later appearing Adamites in the second garden.
