• Could the term ‘Giants’, or ‘Nephilim’, in the Book of Genesis be referring to powerful men – not extraterrestrial beings?
• Could it be that the destruction of ancient Atlantis was simply the same event as the Biblical flood?
“Dr. Alfred Rarewinkle in his book entitled “The Flood”, published in 1952, says that Jesus prophesied an end-of-the-age world of atheist humanists. Listen carefully.
In Matthew, Chapter 24, Verse 37, Christ tells his disciples that the last days will be as it was in the days of Noah. Rarewinkle says that,
“The generation before the Flood was not a pagan or idolatrous race.”
He says they were “godless”. Godless!
Rarewinkle points to archeological evidence which supports scripture and his thesis, quoting Sir Charles Leonard Wooley, a British archeologist who has noted,
“In no single grave has there been any figure of a god, any symbol or ornament that strikes one as being of a religious nature.”
The Old Testament offers further insight into the atheistic, amoral humanism of the Beast and his antediluvian precursors, known as “the Atlantians”. Genesis, Chapter 6, Verse 4, informs us what antediluvian humanity was like. [Genesis 6:4]
“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”
Rarewinkle unravels the enigmas of this passage from Genesis and applies it to the atheistic humanists of our day and world.
“The Hebrew word ‘nephilim’ means more than what we understand by the term ‘giant’. It means ‘those that fall upon others, brigands, thugs, tyrants’.
“These ‘nephilim’ were famous in that world. They had made a great name for themselves through their acts of violence, lawlessness, and corruption. They were known by all and their statues were probably found in the antediluvian shrines of honor.
“There are ‘nephilim’–or ‘giants’–in the world today. They are the men who rule this world. They hold their councils in secret. They dispose of countries and millions of human beings as so many figures on a chess board. They confiscate property that does not belong to them, and condemn millions of innocent people to a horrible death of misery and starvation. They blot out whole cities of men, women, and children, with hell-borne missiles of death; but they are applauded as great men and renowned, and their portraits and statues are given a place of honor in the halls of fame in our world today.”
Rarewinkle suggests that the ‘sons of God’ were not supernational beings, but powerful men who considered themselves as gods–exactly as it was stated in the Garden of Eden: a humanistic philosophy which follows atheism.
Likewise, we see that Daniel’s Beast is atheistic because he regards no god. The Beast reveals his humanist face when he declares himself as god.

Make no mistake. I am not quoting this author to convince you either way about the Nephilim subject. This is only meant to get you thinking.
