Them Bones – FALLEN ANGEL MYTH – PT 8

HHA | by Yvonne Nachtigal

No examination of the popular teachings about the Nephilim would be complete without a look at the skeletons of giants that have reportedly been found all over the world. What about the pictures of archeological digs? What about LA Marzulli’s elongated skulls? Were there really giants?

The 19th century brought a great rise in occult spiritualism, and with it, not only new mystical doctrines in the church, but also many new archaeological “finds.” Did you know that there were no “dinosaur bones” unearthed before the 1800’s?

“No tribes, cultures or countries in the world ever discovered a dinosaur bone before the mid-1800s, and then they were suddenly found all over the world in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Argentina, Belgium, Mongolia, Tanzania, West Germany and many other places apparently had large deposits of dinosaur fossils never before seen. All these places were inhabited and well-explored for thousands of years before this time, why had no one ever found a dinosaur fossil before? “ – The Atlantean Conspiracy

Wow, no dinosaurs? That might be something interesting to look into further at some point.  OK, but we’re talking about human bones. Still, by the same token; there is also no record of giant human bones having been found before that time (that I’ve been able to find anyway – let me know if you find any). The fact is, photograph hoaxes of giant skeletons were wildly popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries as well as exhibits of strange ‘creatures’ created by artists of the time to entertain the public at circus freak shows.

Until recently I would have said that, yes, the Bible does refer to giant men and that the question was not whether they existed but how they came to be. But I’ve recently come to find that a lot of what’s being presented as “evidence” is questionable, as is the interpretation of three popularly referred to scriptures in the OT about giants.

Commentaries on Bible Hub:

Ellicott’s commentary

Giants.—Heb., Nephilim, mentioned again in Numbers 13:33, and apparently a race of great physical strength and stature. Nothing is more probable than that, at a time when men lived for centuries, human vigour should also show itself in producing not merely individuals, but a race of more than ordinary height. They were apparently of the Cainite stock, and the text carefully distinguishes them from the offspring of the mixed marriages. The usual derivation of the name is from a root signifying to fall; but Lenormant (Origines de l’Histoire, p. 344) prefers pâlâ, which means “to be wonderful,” and compares the Assyrian naptû, “unique in size,” often found in the cuneiform inscriptions as the denomination of an ogre.

The same became mighty men.—Heb., They were the mighty men that were of old, men of name. “Gibborim,” mighty men (see Genesis 10:8), has nothing to do with stature, but means heroes, warriors. It is also generally used in a good sense. The children of these mixed marriages were a race of brave fighting men, who by their martial deeds won for themselves reputation.

Genesis 6:4. There were giants — Men so called partly for their high stature, but principally for their great strength and force, whereby they oppressed and tyrannised over others. For this is mentioned as another sin and cause of the flood. More evidence that reveal the Nephilim story to be a deception designed to cause cognitive dissonance, distraction, and the potential for genecide. If there were men of great size on the earth, they would not need to have gotten that way through the inbreeding of angels and women.

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary4. giants—The term in Hebrew implies not so much the idea of great stature as of reckless ferocity, impious and daring characters, who spread devastation and carnage far and wide.

Many of us have heard about the disappearances of giant skeletons from the Smithonian Institute, but that’s been debated back and forth for years. There’s the often retold story on the internet about a group called the American Institute of Alternative Archeology (AIAA) suing the Smithsonian Institute for allegedly destroying hundreds of giant skulls, but I haven’t been able to find that organization (the AIAA). The original article in World News Daily reported that the US Supreme Court demanded the Smithsonian Institute to release classified documents by 2015. A search of the topic doesn’t show anything further on the story.

LA Marzulli’s skulls from Peru and the widely circulated story about the DNA results was examined below by Frank Johnson of Ancient Alien’s Debunked. We’d do well to read some of the scrutiny of popular teachers.

“The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.” Proverbs 18:17

Another Bone to Pick…With Peruvian Nephilim/Alien Hybridsby Frank Johnson on the site “Ancient Aliens Debunked” (which features Michael Heiser and Chris White) we read:

“We’ve read and heard on Youtube about the disappearances of giant skeletons from the Smithonian Institute, but that’s been debated back and forth for years.

The skeletons found at the Indian burial mounds in Ohio, Arkansas and West Virginia were all at the most 7 and a half feet tall.  LA Marzulli’s skulls from Peru and the widely circulated story about the DNA results was examined below by Doubtful News. We’d do well to read some of the scrutiny of popular teachers.

“The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.” Proverbs 18:17

There is a an alleged baby with a deformed skull (debunked here),  there is a skull with red hair, and a skull that allegedly lacks a suture for the parietal skull plates (more on that one later). In addition to these particular three skulls, more than 400 elongated skulls have been found in Paracas alone, let alone in other sites throughout Peru and South America.

So, which one of the hundreds of skulls had the DNA analyzed?

In 2011, Lloyd Pye’s website reported that DNA had been obtained by author Brien Foerster for a geneticist to analyze. The Prison Planet article linked earlier is vague on this point. Lloyd Pye wasquoted in October 2013 with a mention of a sample “2A” then a sample “3A” came up in February 2014as reported by Brien Foerster. Whether that’s a typo from those being quoted, or two different samples is anyone’s guess.

In short, there is no way to tell what material was taken from which skull, and worse no way to tell who has been analyzing it, beyond the late Lloyd Pye and whomever has taken his place. At this point, it seems like Brien Foerster is running the show on the Peruvian skulls, but it’s difficult to be certain.

In a genuine scientific inquiry, this methodology and lack of clarity is anathema. Calling something “sample 2A” or “3A” may sound scientific, but is nothing but a cheap façade. And that’s really only the start.” read more…


The skeletons found at the Indian burial mounds in Ohio, Arkansas and West Virginia were mostly about 7 and a half feet tall with a few larger exceptions.  Hardly the enormity in stature we’re being led to envision.

And again, note the best selling books, DVD’s, as well as the Nephilim mounds tours and other money making enterprises. I’m not a scientist or a theologian, granted, but I have a question; If this information is true and important, if this discovery is crucial for Christians to be aware of for the sake of the gospel and their eternal destiny, then why are these men not offering it free of charge?
