Were Adam and Eve Giants?

Yes they were. However how do we know or even suspect that this is true?  Let’s begin the beginning when God created Adam and Eve. He fashioned them in His likeness and image.  They were tall, good-looking and extremely intelligent with the capacity to live forever.

The world at that time was nutrient rich and lush (which is why we have such enormous coal beds – formed from the lush, huge plant life before the flood). It was perfect and people were perfect so to speak. After the fall of man, humans began to degenerate in size, intellect and lifespan. This is why we find in the the fossil record giant plants and animals. Lifespan before the flood, the Bible says, was 900+ years. If life on earth was generally larger in size (dragonflies with 29” wingspans) then why could there not be giant humans?

Unfortunately today, plants and animals are much smaller and the average height of a man is 5’10” and woman 5’4″.  Instead of living a millennium  we live to be on average 75-85 years with the upper end of 120.

Therefore, the Nephilim or giants mentioned in Genesis 6 and in several places in the old testament were simply the offspring of our giant parents, Adam and Eve.

Do you want to explore this topic further?  A must read  is Jon Gray’s book  Lost World of Giants and you can grab a copy in our museum’s store.

  1. Can you send me to links with archaeological proof or biblical passages for this?

    Some say giants are only the offspring of fallen angels and human women. And they are unsaveable, hence God ordering the annihilation of certain tribes and races in Biblical wars.

    Others say everything lived longer and were bigger like you do, so humans may have too. In that case, not all giants are bad. Only those fallen angel bloodlines and people turned against God are, like the mark of the beast to come.

    1. Read the commentary supplied in the first few chapters in the book Patriarchs and Prophets by Ellen White. I believe she does a pretty good job of explaining it commentary and biblically. Also the book The World of Giants by Jon Gray and Secrets of the Lost Races by Rene Noorbergen does as well. We have the later two in our store.

  2. Without fossil evidence of these giants, this is all just fiction.

    Until we discover fossilized evidence of the Nephilim, they will continue to be nothing but fiction.
