They are mentioned twice in the christian bible in Genesis 6 and Numbers 13...In creationist circles its not believed they are aliens but that they are angels...Of course the "alien" theory is unbiblical you know right...? There is the belief that the fallen ones bred with human women and the result were "Nephilim" or "Giants"...

So what do you think? Were the "Fallen Ones" angels or aliens? State your case with supporting evidence please.

Technically both. If angels aren't born on this planet, they are indeed extraterrestrials.
They are both hypothetical beings that essentially did not originate on Earth.....One being of a religious nature the other being of a paranormal nature...Did these "Fallen Ones" come to Earth as angels or aliens? If you go by the Christian Bible they arrived as angels not aliens...

Since there's no evidence for them even existing, I'm gonna go with neither.

Oh there is evidence giants existed still do today just not the 10 and 20 footers people tend to associate with giants....As far as them being aliens, nah, I don't think so....

The Nephilim never existed.
And Goliath was only a little over 6 feet tall.

Well maybe..He is found in 1 Samuel 17 in the Bible.....It was claimed that his height was 9 feet 6 inches tall....Which by todays standards is tall considering the tallest man in the world is 8 feet 2 inches tall...So it is not entirely out of the realm of possibility that Goliath was nine feet tall...

But then again there are variations about his actual height...The Greek Translation of the OT puts him at 6 foot 6 inches tall..

As far as the Nephilim not existing there maybe evidence to counter that theory..Here is an article from Archaeology World:



Do those links above prove they existed? No...But two is from a non biblical source and the other is from a biblical source.

The earliest version of the story we have comes from the Dead Sea Scrolls. There he is listed as 6 ft. 6 in. It's not a translation thing.

Carved footprints don't indicate anything except people can carve stone.
Yes, the Bible says there were giants. So what? The Bible says a lot of things that aren't evidenced and the Bible itself is not evidence.
The height of this skeleton (from the 5th Century AD, by the way,) hasn't been reported, just that it was a "large man."
Men get large. They are not giants.
Do those links above prove they existed? No...But two is from a non biblical source and the other is from a biblical source.
No, they prove absolutely nothing beyond there are idiots that want so bad to believe in giants that they'll say anything and grasp at any straws.

I will just say that there were Giants and that there is an archaeological record of such giants...Irregardless of knit picking the evidence is there that they did and still do exist....There is a lot more but your persistence in impressing Paula Jedi is getting rather fucking annoying.
