Depending upon your cable or satellite provider, if you channel surf long enough, you will probably find some sort of show dealing with alien’s, demons or UFO’s. Destination America, History, Learning and Science channels regular air content related to these subjects. I have spent months contemplating how to address this issue. Based upon a chapter in Genesis, I believe there is a connection that might begin to illuminate this controversial topic.
When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose, Genesis 6:1-2.
The passage above is one of the most debated in the Bible possessing three possible explanations. The first hypothesis of the phrase sons of God refers to angels or minor deities. When angelic beings left heaven to reproduce with earthly females, a civilization of giants was born inspiring the gods and goddess of Ancient Greece. The second refers to an aristocratic class of rulers who married ordinary woman to create an elite society. These men were inspired by the desire to make a name for themselves similar to those behind the building of the Tower of Babel. Finally, the sons of God are aliens from another world who took earthly females as their wives. This final view may explain advanced technology discovered by archeologists within the ruins of ancient civilizations.
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown, Genesis 6:4.
Since I am not a Bible scholar, I won’t declare which of these theories is correct, but I do know that this unusual breeding gave birth to giants on earth. After this unnatural relationship began, God’s displeasure led to a global flood which served as a do over with Noah and his eight family members the sole survivors. Unfortunately, there are some things in life that people can only speculate about until the answers are provided in heaven. However, what act was so vile that God was willing to destroy the inhabitants of his prized creation? This my friends is the ten million dollar question.
