"When I discovered this trail of a giant man under the waterfall, I had a feeling that it was one of the most important discoveries since the Dead Sea Scrolls."
Disclaimer: I am a creationist who believes the Bible is the infallible Word of God. The following secular article—despite its scientific evolution-speak and the author's fascination with unexplainable phenomena—lists discoveries that may not only shed light on the mysterious Nephilim, but also, ironically, "upend" the theory of evolution itself, in the process. –Teresa Neumann, BCN.
"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown." -Genesis 6:4 "We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them." -Numbers 13:33
The Canadian has published a fascinating article by reporter Brad Steiger concerning archaeological evidence of a race of "giant" men. Steiger lists a series of discoveries that point to the existence of these super-sized humans, including enormous weapons that could not have been used by average-sized men, "gigantic" sized skeletal remains in midwest Indian mounds, cave paintings in Rhodesia discovered in 1970 depicting a brontosaurus (supposedly extinct "millions" of years before evolutionists say man arrived on earth) and another similar depiction in Mexico of a pre-historic bird that was supposedly extinct 130 million years ago.
Dr. Clifford Burdick, who in the early 1950's began investigating "footprints in stone" when the Natural Science Foundation of Los Angeles assigned him to go with four other members to examine the reported man-tracks found in strata contemporaneous with dinosaur prints in and around Glen Rose, Texas, says: "If these are verified as human tracks, the discovery will have far-reaching repercussions throughout the scientific world, and especially for stratigraphers and palaeontologists...This evidence, if verified, will practically collapse the geologic column."
Burdick is quoted as saying that the generally accepted theory of evolution would be dealt a lethal blow, because the geologic record of human footprints contemporaneous with dinosaur tracks "suggests that simple and complex types of life were coexistent in time past or during geologic ages... This does not harmonize with the hypothesis that complex types of life evolved from lower or more simple forms. Evolution implies that through the geologic ages life has not only become more complex, but has increased in size. If evidence from the man-tracks can be used as a criterion, ancient man was much larger than modern man as an average. This harmonized with most fossil life which was larger than its modern counterpart... On the whole, biological life has had to contend with unfavorable environment which has been a factor in its degeneration, rather than its evolution."
Steiger also lists several discoveries of giant human skeletal remains in North and South America, many measuring over 8-foot tall. The New York Times ran a piece on February 14, 1936, datelined Managua, Nicaragua, which stated that "the skeleton of a gigantic man, with the head missing, had been unearthed at El Boquin, on the Mico River, in the Chontales district. The ribs are a yard long and four inches wide and the shin bone is too heavy for one man to carry."
Valley of the Giants author Dr. C. N. Doughtery, concludes: "When I discovered this trail of a giant man under the waterfall, I had a feeling that it was one of the most important discoveries since the Dead Sea Scrolls."
