Genesis first tells us of the Nephilim:

Genesis 6 KJV
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.


According to Numbers, they later inhabited Canaan at the time of the Israelite conquest of Canaan:

Numbers13 KJV
33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.


Further confirmation in the Book of Jubilees 7:

21 For owing to these three things came the flood upon the earth, namely, owing to the fornication wherein the Watchers against the law of their ordinances went a whoring after the daughters of men, and took themselves wives of all which they chose: and they made the beginning of uncleanness.
22 And they begat sons the Naphidim, and they were all unlike, and they devoured one another: and the Giants slew the Naphil, and the Naphil slew the Eljo, and the Eljo mankind, and one man another.


These questions are for Christians. Have any bones of these giants been found in the Middle-East among all those excavations occurring there? If not, why not?

These questions are for Christians. Have any bones of these giants been found in the Middle-East among all those excavations occurring there? If not, why not?

First, why would bones be found? Do you know how vanishingly rare it would be for bones to survive in that area from 6,000 years ago? With the harsh climate and historical upheavals? Archeologists would laugh you out of the room as an unwashed illiterate at this question.

Second, what makes you interpret the verses as referring to size and not stature? If you were asked to list great men today, would you be more likely to site Stephen Hawking or Andre the Giant?

Third, gigantism is a natural and explained phenomenon that occurrs in every human society. There is no need for extraodernary explanations for it. It isn't miraculous.

Finally, the Book of Jubilees is not scripture, and as such, I do not have to defend or explain it in any way.

Actually, finding intact skeletal remains from 6,000 years ago that also happened to be a case of gigantism would be so rare as to make experts dout its authenticity.

Are you saying these size "giants" should have existed and that their bones should have been found? Could you really be saying that?

Ethan's ignorance notwithstanding:

Oldest known human fossil outside Africa discovered in Israel

https://www.theguardian.com...

A prehistoric jawbone discovered in a cave in Israel has prompted scientists to rethink theories of how the earliest human pioneers came to populate the planet, suggesting that our ancestors left Africa far earlier than previously thought.

The fossil, dated to nearly 200,000 years ago, is almost twice as old as any previous Homo sapiens remains discovered outside Africa, where our species is thought to have originated.


Anthropologists discover earliest cemetery in Middle East

https://www.sciencedaily.com...

Anthropologists have discovered the oldest cemetery in the Middle East at a 16,500-year-old site in northern Jordan. The cemetery includes graves containing human remains buried alongside those of a red fox, suggesting that the animal was possibly kept as a pet by humans long before dogs ever were.

So one dimensional you are. 1.8 meters was gigantic 5000 years ago. https://www.livestrong.com...

Why do you think this made news? Or why it has only just been found? Because finding bones from the time period in question is rare.

https://www.theguardian.com...

A prehistoric jawbone discovered in a cave in Israel has prompted scientists to rethink theories of how the earliest human pioneers came to populate the planet, suggesting that our ancestors left Africa far earlier than previously thought.

The fossil, dated to nearly 200,000 years ago, is almost twice as old as any previous Homo sapiens remains discovered outside Africa, where our species is thought to have originated.

Because you know nothing of what you speak, you think that bones of all past peroids should be equally accessable. Not so. Very old bones are found in caves where they were somewhat protected from weather and war. Bones from 6,000 years ago would be very rare.

Anthropologists have discovered the oldest cemetery in the Middle East at a 16,500-year-old site in northern Jordan. The cemetery includes graves containing human remains buried alongside those of a red fox, suggesting that the animal was possibly kept as a pet by humans long before dogs ever were.

http://www.scmp.com...

Why do you think every example of yours is at least 3 times older than 6,000 years? It is common to have bones from earlier periods plentiful, and bones from later peroids very rare. You know nothing about anthropology.

French archaeologists unearth bones from 6,000-year-old massacre

https://www.theguardian.com...

Archaeologists have discovered (in a silo) the remains of a 6,000-year-old massacre that took place in Alsace, in north-eastern France.

Your case needed this lie didn't it?

You failed point one, and dodged the second, third, and fourth points. 0 for 0. Good job.

No. You are for not understanding arguendo:

https://en.wikipedia.org...

Assuming arguendo allows an attorney to examine the conclusions of premises without admitting that these premises --- often the asserted facts of the opposing party --- could be true.[1][2]

http://users.cecs.anu.edu.au...

We call the sentences from which an argument starts its premises, and the one to which it leads the conclusion. The premises could be some known facts, but they do not have to be. They could be something assumed or conjectured, or just supposed for the sake of argument.

They couldn't have died out if they existed at the time of Numbers 13. I can't make sense of it. it looks very like the Hebrews had a myth (or myths)concernig a race of giants and heros that we just get tantalising glimpses of.

That you would link to some taller than average skeletons way over in China shows just how desperate you guys are. LOL.

They couldn't have died out if they existed at the time of Numbers 13.

Better still. Where are they? :-)

I can't make sense of it. it looks very like the Hebrews had a myth (or myths)concernig a race of giants and heros that we just get tantalising glimpses of.

I agree. There's not much.

The Greeks had a similar mythology with the Cyclops who were a race of giants too. However, the Nephilim aren't said to have had only one eye.

I suppose there is no reason why the Bible should contain all the mythology and fire-side tales the Hebrews had. The OT seems to have been written by scribes who were a pretty humourless bunch. Accoring the Bible no Hebrew ever cracked a joke.

As usual, the ever so comical and inept pseudo-christian ETHANG5 can be easily dispatched from any conversation by the mere fact that as a pseudo-christian, he has to accept that the human race is only approximately 6000 years old, so says the pagan bible.

When ETHANG5 has to believe the bible axiom above, then it puts ETHANG5'S inept mental state into question, being just another psychotic Bronze and Iron Age thinker living in the 21st century. LOL

Next pseudo-christian to the ATHEIST'S wood chipper will be?

LOL Poor Dee-em. You haven't been lied to. You're just trapped in your own closed mindedness. Your inability to have independent thought can't be blamed on me.

You have to have an appreciation for biblical era Hebrew which is very different from the modern Hebrew language of today. http://messianicfellowship.50webs.com... Only then can you understand the way Ancient Hebrews communicated. Very allegorical, emblematic, metaphorical, mystical, laden with idioms. Indeed their words were pictures. They even spoke to one anther with very symbolic speech habits. You do realize the translations of today are not, nor can there be, literal translations, don't you?

So when I supplied that link about China it was just to draw you out of your shell and see if you'd realize that by their standards most of us would seem like giants. The other link was intended to further demonstrate that probability because as time went on the human trend overall tended to grow taller. And if you truly read it all, you would have realized it discussed human heights some 17000 yrs ago of early humans called Homo floresiensis. Where women were a little over 3 feet tall. So no it didn't specifically mention 5000 yrs ago, but that date fell within the time line. Loosen up!

Biblical Hebrew was a sophisticated language even by our standards though it contained fewer words than modern English. Here is a link that demonstrates this however don't be fooled by wording the link uses. "Encoded" and "decode" are simply descriptors after the fact of discovery but the contemporaries of the time understood the meaningful impact of their words in casual conversations just as societies do today. http://blog.world-mysteries.com...

Then why did you take it literally, dummy? You are the one who accepted that the Bible had to be telling the literal truth so you had to go and find some spurious link to bones found in China, yes China, to try vainly to support the Bible claims. The only problem is that you seem to have no concept of geography! LOL.

So when I supplied that link about China it was just to draw you out of your shell and see if you'd realize that by their standards most of us would seem like giants.

How is that relevant since the Hebrews had no knowledge of the Chinese? They also had no knowledge of the North American Indians who also averaged about 1.8m tall due to their high protein diet of buffalo meat. It's all a nonsense until you can find skeletons of really big people in the Middle-East. And they had better be big unless your Bible is lying. You can hand-wave the "as grasshoppers" part of your scripture away if you like, but you are then hand-waving away the word of God. That part of scripture is a military report made to Moses by scouts he had sent out. There is nothing "mystical" about a tactical report from a scout on what they can expect to encounter as they invade Canaan.

The other link was intended to further demonstrate that probability because as time went on the human trend overall tended to grow taller.

So no it didn't specifically mention 5000 yrs ago, but that date fell within the time line. Loosen up!

Are you kidding? Your Bible doesn't go back more than 8,000 years and you don't even believe in evolution according to some of your comments. Now you want to invoke 60,000 to 100,000 year old fossils (your site is incorrect about the dating) from Homo floresiensis (another species!) in Indonesia to support your argument? Does your hypocrisy have no bounds?

https://en.wikipedia.org...

These remains have been the subject of intense research to determine whether they represent a species distinct from modern humans, though the dominant consensus is that these remains do represent a distinct species due to genetic and anatomical differences.[4]

The Homo floresiensis skeletal material is now dated from 60,000 to 100,000 years ago; stone tools recovered alongside the skeletal remains were from archaeological horizons ranging from 50,000 to 190,000 years ago.[9]

Here is a link that demonstrates this however don't be fooled by wording the link uses. "Encoded" and "decode" are simply descriptors after the fact of discovery but the contemporaries of the time understood the meaningful impact of their words in casual conversations just as societies do today. http://blog.world-mysteries.com...

Gish gallop ignored.

Lol yeah you generally do ignore facts when you don"t understand them or they contradict your preconceptions. And you don"t read well or most likely lie about what you read. Come on, if you"re going to confess, confess all. If you didn"t lie, you would have known I only mentioned the latest date that species was believed to have existed. Wikipedia hahahahaha

And I didn"t take it literally. You did, Grasshopper! That"s why you"re in this mess. Excuse me while I bust a gut rolmao

And yet another theist runs away from anything approaching meaningful discussion. You guys are so predictable.
Once again their defence of the passage is that their god was lying and they weren't giants at all. Their god lies a lot in that book.

Genesis first tells us of the Nephilim:

Genesis 6 KJV
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.


According to Numbers, they later inhabited Canaan at the time of the Israelite conquest of Canaan:

Numbers13 KJV
33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.


Further confirmation in the Book of Jubilees 7:

21 For owing to these three things came the flood upon the earth, namely, owing to the fornication wherein the Watchers against the law of their ordinances went a whoring after the daughters of men, and took themselves wives of all which they chose: and they made the beginning of uncleanness.
22 And they begat sons the Naphidim, and they were all unlike, and they devoured one another: and the Giants slew the Naphil, and the Naphil slew the Eljo, and the Eljo mankind, and one man another.


These questions are for Christians. Have any bones of these giants been found in the Middle-East among all those excavations occurring there? If not, why not?::

They're found all over the place. Anything else?

Oldest known human fossil outside Africa discovered in Israel

https://www.theguardian.com...

A prehistoric jawbone discovered in a cave in Israel has prompted scientists to rethink theories of how the earliest human pioneers came to populate the planet, suggesting that our ancestors left Africa far earlier than previously thought.

The fossil, dated to nearly 200,000 years ago, is almost twice as old as any previous Homo sapiens remains discovered outside Africa, where our species is thought to have originated.

Anthropologists have discovered the oldest cemetery in the Middle East at a 16,500-year-old site in northern Jordan. The cemetery includes graves containing human remains buried alongside those of a red fox, suggesting that the animal was possibly kept as a pet by humans long before dogs ever were.

It appears you are trying to give dates to disprove the Bible, which is pointless, because the Bible doesn't claim how old the Earth is, nor does it claim how long humans have been here. Off ya go.
