Christian-centered belief accepts that only Noah and his kin survived the flood, but the ancient record, and anthropological and historical facts, challenge this narrow view. There are hundreds of Noah's and Noah-like flood legends in the histories and legends of most ancient peoples around the world. And, how did African, Asian, Mesoamerican, and the other great cultures of the world exist, on a much grander scale than the Adamic-related culture of the Bible, both before, and after, the great flood they record? Only more survivors could explain this.
The recognition of Bible related giants is high, even outside of mainstream Christian influence, with the famous and oft-repeated encounter of David and the giant, Goliath. Some are aware of other accounts of giants, the king with a 16-foot bed. Deeply buried in the biblical record are several "tribes" or groups of giants mentioned. Many of these are mentioned in the verses we present on giants in the Bible, but it would take an exhaustive project to do make an entire presentation on these giant tribes.
We always encourage our readers to do independent research on all subjects found in the entirety of this work. In this case anyone interested in these giant tribes can do an internet search using the words "giant" or "giants" in conjunction with any of names of giant tribes or groups listed below. Many others have done several research projects that are available online. Amorites, Anakims, Aviums, Canaanites, Caphtorims, Emins, Hittites, Hivites, Horims, Kadmonites, Kenites, Kenizzites, Perizzites, Rephaims, Zamzummins, Zebusites, Zuzims.
Here is an intriguing verse showing this biblical reality:
► "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." (Numbers 13:33)
To put this in perspective we will show how the men making that statement came to this revelation.
♦ God decides that the tribes of Israel should
settle in the land called Canaan and orders Moses to send men to explore
► "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel:" and "And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan..." (Numbers 13:1&17)
♦ The men return and a report that it is a beautiful and abundant land, but with great walled cities and a "strong" people that were the sons of Anak living there: ► "And they returned from searching of the land after forty days....And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it. Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. " (Numbers 13:25-28)
♦ There is a call to conquer the land but the men give a warning about the strength of the inhabitants: ► "And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we." (Numbers 13:30-32)
♦ The cause for this great strength of these
people is revealed when we find out how big the "children of Anak"
► "And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. 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." (Numbers 13:32-33)
There can be no doubt that the people living in Canaan were
either an organized tribe or group of giants living in great walled
cities. This no legend found scrawled on some obscure buried tablet, but
absolute biblical proof that the Nation of Israel confronted a giant
race in the land of Canaan. Descriptions of encounters with other giants
and giant tribes or groups are found in the Bible as well. This being
true, is not logical to assume that there may have been other giant
clans in other parts of the world gathered together to protect
themselves from other humans, or more likely, from other giant tribes?
Could this be the reason why large groupings of giant bones are found together in caves and burial grounds all over the world? Consider the ones found only in Ohio, just in 19th Century: Conneaut 1800, Chesterville 1829, Vermillion 1858, Brush Creek Township 1870, Seneca Township 1872, Ashtabula County 1878, Zanesville 1880, Medina County 1881, Marion County 1883, Brown County 1883, Toledo 1888 and 1895, Proctorville 1892, Jackson 1897, and the Lake Erie Islands 1898.
This should give an indication that giants were not solitary beings and only found in biblical lands, but probably all over the world in great numbers. If that many groups were found in only one century in one location less than 1/1400th of the land mass of the planet, then how many more places were they located but never discovered?
