    Genesis speaks of the fallen angels co-habitating with the women of the pre-Flood era. Any chance this may be the origins for our Greek/Roman/etc., mythologies?

    Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. (ESV)

    Thanks for your brevity.

    The great UT-D Bible scholar Darfius had a very complicated theory about the Nephilim. It's around here somewhere . . .

    No. The reverse is true. The Hebrews learned their mythologies from their neighbors, not the other way round.

    There were no Hebrews at the time in question.

    No, but the Hebrews had neighbors. And those neighbors perhaps were around when the Greeks were spreading their "truth" all over. And if not them, perhaps their neighbors were, etc.

    Wait a sec. The Hebrews predicted the fall of Tyre, and Tyre was demolished by Alexander the Great, who claimed soverienity over the Greeks. Once again, when you consider that the Greeks had power right up to the time of the Romans, and the Romans ran things in the New Testament. Forget my first statement, please; It seems that the two cultures overlapped.

    Okay, I just thought that perhaps you were speaking about the time of Nephilim. In that case, you are operating under the assumption that there was such a time, and therefore you argument is biased and flawed. You can't use your conclusion as a premise--see Decartes' proof of God.

    Surely that was "came unto the daughters of man"?

    If not, what version are you reading, Halitose? Very worrying...

    It's a distant memory of the time when there were still Neanderthals.
    Or, maybe not.

    That's my point. The mythologies in question are older than the Hebrews (from whom we get the myths in question when the Bible is our source).

    The giants of the bible are the offspring of this union.There has also been evidence of giant fossils through history.
