Does anyone else remeber the bible saying that there were giants roaming the Earth when Adam and Eve left the garden?

That was one thing that always confused me. The bible only talks about god creating Adam and Eve, but then it says there were giants roaming the Earth when they left the garden. And just so there is no confusion, the bible I was brought up on was the King James version.

  • It is talking about the Nephilim. Biblical scholars debate as to the meaning of this, but some scholars believe that demons had sex with women here on earth and created a race of people called Nepilim. They were giants. I think that is what you are talking about.

  • The bible never says those Giants were humans. I'm pretty sure it is speaking of Dinosaurs, which they weren't called Dinosaurs then. it just merely points out that there were giants. to humans, dinosaurs would have been giants in their eyes.

  • sorry, forgot to post the verse: Genesis 6:4 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.


    see the semi-colon? it means it was just a statement, it really has nothing to do with the rest of the verse.
