1. There is a population increase
2. There is also an increase in moral depravity and wickedness.
We will get more to that momentarily, but first, many of us have grown up with tales of giants - we all know (except for some Millennials, whom I wonder even read at times at all due to the fact everything is about "reality TV" and perpetual moving fingers on small instruments of modern technology these days among that age group!) stories such as "Jack and the Beanstalk," where a cannibalistic giant gets a little ticked off with Jack trespassing in his house, which Jack discovered by climbing a magic beanstalk, and threatens to eat him for doing so - this is the old "Fee-fi-fo-fum" rhyme. Giants make their appearance in folk tales and mythologies of practically every culture of the world, and in understanding that, it means that something had to trigger the proliferation of those stories. What if I were to tell you that real giants existed, and the Bible tells us their origins and even how big they got? Belief in giants has both been scoffed at by much of mainstream culture as a product of less-sophisticated imaginations, or in recent years there has been an upsurge in interest about finding remains of giants in different cultures, as some researchers and archaeologists (of note recently are the Viera Brothers in Massachusetts, who even had a series on History Channel about their endeavors called Search for the Lost Giants) are starting to understand that myths may hold more than what they originally thought. Genesis 6 is one of the texts that alludes to the existence of these beings, and therefore in this study we are going to explore this a little more, based on some convincing evidence from other ancient writers as well. In the Genesis 6 text, we first read about this in verse 4, which talks about an enigmatic group called the "sons of God" (B'nai Elohim) coming down and mating with the "daughters of men" and producing a race of "mighty men of old, of renown" (Hebrew Gibborim). Later in this study, we will be talking more specifically about the giants mentioned here, but for now we will note that the etymology of the word "giant" is an English derivative of the Greek word gugantes, which literally translates as "earth-borne." The Greek word is a combination of two root words - gaia, which refers to the earth itself and is the name of an ancient Greek earth goddess, and uranos, which is the proper name of the Greek god of the sky and rain, as the origin of the name implied urination from the sky (www.etymonline.com and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uranus_(mythology)). The name gugantes therefore would refer to beings who were born of the earth but fertilized in essence by the sky; looking at it from the literal word translations, what it implies is a sexual typology of the sky inseminating the earth and the earth conceiving these beings. It is no accident that this imagery is present in the translation, as it also concurs with the Genesis 6 account of the "sons of God" descending from the sky and mating with the daughters of men, who came from Adam, whose name is also derived from "earth." Unfortunately, in the process according to the myth Uranus was castrated. Thus, you have a race of half spirit/half material supermen called Titans resulting from that union. It is obvious that the Uranus/Gaia myth is a corruption of the truth, as the real story is in Genesis 6 - fallen angels messing around with human women and producing these huge hybrids. This view has been debated for centuries among Biblical scholars and theologians, and momentarily we will address that, as two schools of thought built up around it. At any rate, God said in his own Bible that giants existed, and He told Moses this story for a purpose, as it also relates to Genesis 3:15, the "enmity between the seeds." These giants were the "seed of the serpent," and by corrupting the "seed of the woman," it was anticipated by Satan that her seed would yield little resistance if he corrupted the seed with his own. But, as we see later, God has other plans.
