Giants On The Earth
GOD SAID, "There were giants."
"Educated" MAN SAID, "Foolishness."
Now, THE RECORD.
Ancient records and tales in nearly all civilizations recount stories of giants - men and women of enormous proportions. The tallest in medical history according to the Guinness Book of World Records is Robert Pershing Wadlow, born in Alton, Illinois, in 1918. Mr. Wadlow dies a very young man in 1940 and had reached the height of 8 feet eleven and one tenth inches. But Mr. Wadlow was a mere dwarf according to the ancient records. All the following books of the Bible speak of giants: Genesis, Numbers, Dueteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Chronicles, Nehemiah, Job and Psalms.
For example, in the book of Genesis, chapter 6, verse 4, it reads, "There were giants in the earth in those days..."
The Bible also speaks about the sons of Anak...all giants...and Og, the Giant King of Bashan, whose bed was approximately 14 feet long. He could lick salt from the top of Goliath's nearly 10-foot-tall head. The Bible actually makes nearly 100 references to giants (as the primary word) and to the names of those said to be giants.
"Ridiculous," say the skeptics.
I'm holding in my hand a photograph of a fossilized footprint found in the Paluxy River bed. It's an apparent human footprint nearly three times the cubic inch displacement of an adult footprint. More of these giant footprints were found in Arizona, California and New Mexico.
Let it also be noted that scientists have found gigantic skulls and enormous jaws that may have belonged to a race of giants long ago.
