There are quite a few biblical references to giants, Goliath being the most well known. I am not inferring that these giants were bigfoot, but, at least according to the bible, these were large primates. This makes for an interesting discusion. Read the following exerpts and mull it over:
“There were giants (Nephilim) 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.” Gen. 6:4
“And there we saw the giants , the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” Nu. 13:33
Goliath was not a Philistine but fought for them. He may have been descended from the old Rephaim (Giants). The Rephaim were dispersed by the Ammonites and the remainder took refuge with the Philistines. Deut. 2:20,21 & 2 Sam. 1:22.
Gigantopithecus was a giant primate and is a archeological fact. Some believe hairy humans in areas such as Russia were the product of breeding between humans and bigfoot like creatures. Some bigfoot reports refer to bigfoot being attracted to human females and even carrying them off. Is there a connection between the giants of the bible and bigfoot? I will leave that to the reader to analyze.
