Any of you who knows me knows that I take the Bible literally. Every word, every sentence, every paragraph, every chapter, every book and the whole of Scripture is inspired by Yahweh; a dictation of His thoughts, His intentions for humankind and creation, His plan for the ages and of course, His love story for mankind. It all points to Yeshua, past, present and future.
So, when some miscreant decides to pollute scripture with lies, suppositions or plain lunacy I have to counter with the truth. There are many forces lined up to malign scripture and Yeshua along with His Knesset (Church), but the worse of the worst are people who masquerade as believers who lead people astray via half truths and suppositions that are not backed up by Yahweh’s Word. If it doesn’t match up with scripture then it is wood, hay and stubble and it will burn up in the fire that will consume all things ungodly.
So when some mixed up little girl (who calls herself a genius) tries to hoodwink good and honest believers I have to speak up. When this person equates a modern physical anomaly with Nephilim genes I have to speak out further because now she is equating the anomaly with sin, and it is not sin when it has a perfect scientific explanation as a genetic defect that is uniquely human.
First of all, let me explain who the characters in this saga are. The Nephilim were (are) genetic hybrids created by the mix of fallen angel and human DNA. How many chromosomes they had could be argued and nobody will probably ever know, but it probably was not the 46 human chromosomes that each and every one of us has. If you are a Nephilim and are reading this perhaps you could get a blood test and let us know how many chromosomes you have; but how would you even know if you were not quite all human. Again, that is a call that I really don’t want to make, ever. The Nephilim existed before the Great Flood during Noah’s time and afterward. Bear in mind that Noah lived about 500 years before the flood and he also lived another ~450 years after the flood. So, the days of Noah that Moses describes in Genesis chapter six were before the flood and well after the flood. Yeshua tells us that when He returns, the world will be in a state, “just as in the days of Noah,” and since He saw what happened during Noah’s time, I’m sure that He knew what He was talking about when He said what he said. Hence, Yeshua affirmed to us that in these last days, there would be Nephilim living on the earth. If you believe that the occupants of UFO’s are really fallen angels (like all evidence seems to suggest) and you know that they take sperm from male abductees and ovum from female abductees then you have to wonder what they are doing with those items. Perhaps making Nephilim?
There is a ragtag group out there that are insistent that there are no modern day Nephilim, Actually, you have to see what day you catch them on because in one sentence they say there are no Nephilim, but in the same article they say that modern day Nephilim can be saved through the blood of Yeshua. That doesn’t make us want to go out on a modern day Nephilim Hunt, but to do what we’re told to do and to preach the Gospel of Yeshua to “every creature.” This ragtag group, Guy Malone, Nicole Malone (AKA Paradox Brown), Joe Jordan all proudly proclaim that there are no modern day Nephilim, but they all claim that they can be saved. Go figure, huh?
Recently, I have had the occasion to go through nursing school and in the course of our study we have gone into DNA studies as well as disorders of the Pituitary Gland. Let’s look at DNA first, shall we. DNA dictates who we are; that is a known fact. It is a code written by the master code writer, Yahweh. The complexity of the human anatomy and physiology of how the human body works is truly amazing. I thought I knew a lot before I went to school and I was so wrong. The complexity of how DNA was written and how it dictates who we are is nothing short of miraculous and demands that the code writer was Divine. Sometimes DNA gets corrupted because of one of any variety of different means. When this happens, a mutation occurs. This is not to be confused with adaptation, sometimes called micro-evolution which is a change in a “kind” that allows it to adapt to environment. Those changes are almost always beneficial because they are adaptations for a specific purpose. The beaks of finches that Darwin noted and called “evolution” were really adaptations that allowed different finches to survive their environment and if anything this process disproves the “survival of the fittest” bovine scatology that ardent evolutionist try to inculcate within us at an early age. Genetic mutations are a different story and are at best 99.999 percent harmful or fatal to the recipient of the mutation.
Mutation should never be confused with hybridization, which is what happened before the flood, and is happening today. We read in the news without ceasing, how scientists are crossing kinds with other kinds and creating chimera’s (animals that are really two different animals). Interestingly, the Book of Enoch states that this happened before the Great Flood, and it was one instrumental reason why Yahweh destroyed all of the animals except the ones that went on the Ark with Noah. Well, there might have been more uncorrupted animals, but Yahweh only needed the ones that were on the Ark. Scripture says that flesh has become corrupted, even animals, thus Yahweh had to bring things to an end.
Paradox Brown states that after the Great Flood, the only giants that were around were those who suffered from what scientists call Giantism. However, with such claims should come good science and resources, not speculation and innuendo. Of course Brown is proud to claim that she is a genius, and when one does an entomological study of “genius” one comes to the conclusion that she is probably right on that account. Genius comes from the same root word as genie, which is “gin.” Gins in Middle Eastern lore are what Jews and Christians know to be demons. In olden days a person was called a genius because it was thought that their knowledge came from demonic sources. Enough said.
What exactly is Giantism? Glad you asked. In our heads, below the anterior part of our brain, lies a gland called the Pituitary Gland. It controls so many things in the human body that it is often referred to as the “master gland.” The pituitary gland has two sections, the anterior (front) pituitary gland and the posterior (back) pituitary. The front releases a host of hormones that are essential for the regulation of the human body; TSH for thyroid function and a host of others. The posterior of the pituitary releases only three main hormones; oxytocin which is a hormone that stimulates lactation in women and helps in labor during delivery of a child. It also helps a mother to form a bond with her baby. The second hormone is ADH, or anti-diuretic hormone. The third hormone is HGH, or Human Growth Hormone, also called somatotropin. In proper amounts this hormone goes to the growth plates of a growing child’s bones and tells those plates to produce more bone so that the bones will lengthen. If a child gets too little HGH dwarfism could occur. Too much HGH before puberty results in giantism. If HGH is released in excessive amounts after puberty a condition of acromegaly occurs. In acromegaly the body doesn’t grow in stature, but the organs continue to grow as well as the bones of the skull and other areas of the body. If not treated, acromegaly leads to death. In the case of giantism, HGH is released before puberty where the major growth of the giant occurs. Some growth continues after puberty just like most of us grew most of the way through high school. In the person with giantism, after puberty when growth is complete, the HGH is still released which results in a giant with acromegaly. Organs like the heart, liver, pancrease and kidneys continue to grow until they grow too large for the body and/or they lose function because they cannot provide the body with what it needs anymore. All people with giantism die at a fairly early age because acromegaly kills them. They are mostly weak all throughout their lifetimes because their systems cannot function correctly. Basically, they are too big for their own good and it kills them. The tallest contemporary giant was Robert Wadlow. Here is a little about him. Information found at Wikipedia:
Robert Pershing Wadlow (22 February 1918 – 15 July 1940), also called “The Alton Giant”, was the tallest human in history. At his death at the age of 22, his height was 8 feet 11.1 inches.
Wadlow was tall, even as a very young child, surpassing six feet in height by age eight. At eighteen, his height had reached 8 feet 4 inches (2.54 meters) and his shoes were 18.5 inches long – equivalent to about size thirty.
While attending college, Robert also worked for a shoe company, travelling to show the immense shoes that they had made for him. His great height and weight – nearly 500 pounds – caused health problems; he required leg braces to walk, and, due to the unusually long distance nerve impulses had to travel, had difficulty feeling any sensation in his feet. Because of this, he failed to notice pain from an infection caused by a poorly fitting leg brace. He died of this infection on 15 July 1940, at the age of 22.
Here is a good question one would need to ask by looking at the picture above. If giantism is a recessive gene then how come Robert’s brother was normal size. In the case of Goliath, scripture says that he had siblings and suggests that they were giants too. Can’t have it both ways. The answer; Robert had a pituitary disorder while Goliath and his brothers were real Nephilim.
People like Nicole might argue that Robert died at an early age because he had an infection. Well, it’s true that he had an infection, but he got the infection from leg braces that he needed to wear because his legs could not bear his weight. Goliath was a warrior that scared the tar out of Saul’s army; I doubt that he was spindly like Robert was.
I mentioned acromegaly earlier. I mentioned how the bones grow in the skull as well as the organs in the body until there is organ failure. Here is a picture of a giant with acromegaly. Although he looks like a tough fellow, he was probably weak and fragile because that is what acromegaly does, in each and every case where it is incurred:
The case of Andre The Giant always comes up when this subject is brought to light. He was a strong individual, but only towered to 7′-4″, not quite a giant. He did die at the early age of 46 of congestive heart failure; the victim of acromegaly.
Another problem that Nicole didn’t mention is that giantism and acromegaly almost always lead to sterility. However, in her writings she mentions that there were giant men and women and she suggests that they bred and had children. The problem with this is that a simple knowledge of the birds and the bees shows that if you can’t fertilize an egg you don’t have offspring. In this case, the death of any line of giants (because of giantism) would have been imminent and the problem would have reversed itself without the intervention of Yahweh or the Armies of Israel. To say that men and women with the pituitary disorder of HDH overproduction could produce “mighty men” who bred with women or giant women is ludicrous because they would be too feeble to breed, they would not be strong enough to fight in any sort of battles and they all would die at a very early age. To say that giants might have been stronger, more virile and “mighty men,” because their gene pool wasn’t as corrupted is ludicrous too because giantism and acromegaly aren’t genetic disorders, the same as being a little person isn’t a genetic disorder (two little people can make a normal sized child); both stem from either too much or too little somatotropin during growth and development.
So, if we are to entertain Nicole Malone’s assertion that giants like Goliath (and his other giant siblings), Og, King of Bashan, and her assertion that the “might men” of David all suffered from giantism we have a serious problem. First, their muscles would not be strong because they can never keep up with the growth spurts of their youth. Second, their organ’s would not have held out for very long. They would have died of splenomegaly, hepatomegaly, nephromegaly or cardiomegaly (CHF). They would not have been able to carry a giant’s sword across the compound let alone use one in battle. They would not have been able to wear armor because it would be too heavy and carrying a shield would have worn them out. They had to be something other than humans with a pituitary disorder. They could not have been a race of human giants that started out after the flood by a freak of nature because sterility and early death would have eliminated the race. The only thing that makes sense, and is Biblically sound, is that there was a second incursion of fallen angels sometime after the Flood, probably during the time when Noah was still alive; or, there were several incursions that occurred after the flood.
Those things taken into account, along with Paul’s warning to the Church in Corinth that women need a spiritual covering over them, “on account of the angels,” and the promise of Yeshua that when He returns, it will be “as in the Days of Noe,” all point out to second, third or a continuous incursion of fallen angels out to destroy the genome of humankind, perhaps in an attempt to somehow attain the salvation that is only accorded to humankind. We will have to wait and see what happens at the end of this story.
