Og's Bed

(Og king of Bashan was the last of the Rephaites. His bed was decorated with iron and was more than nine cubits long and four cubits wide. It is still in Rabbah of the Ammonites.) Deuteronomy 3:11

Why write about a man's bed that was about twelve feet long? Moderns will say this is just the size of his bed. Don't believe in this "giants" business. But the Bible has quite a bit to say about giants, besides the famous passage in Genesis 6:4.

For example, giant men were obstacles to Israel's conquest of the Holy Land--obstacles that were overcome. It is a mystery to many that the giants in Genesis 6 were pre-flood and must have perished in the water. So why do they show up after the flood? Scientists would say that these progeny of fallen angels and earthly women left in the remnants recessive genes, which emerged much later.

I saw an illustration of Goliath recently where he was portrayed with five fingers on his hands, whereas Goliath had six. Just a drawing, of course.

I once received a braille letter from a young man in India. He mentioned that he had six fingers on each hand and was shunned because of this. A not-uncommon surgery in some parts of the world is to remove extra fingers, and for just this reason.

I recently watched videos on skeletons of giants that have been discovered all over the world, as in the state of Kentucky and the western states. One video mentioned that although many complete skeletons of giants have been unearthed, they have mostly disappeared and only photographs remain.

What could be the motive for remaining silent over these discoveries? After all, a human legbone as long as a modern man is newsworthy. There is a great lack of objectivity in anthropology. Evolution must be maintained and the Bible discredited as a collection of myths. But a field of knowledge called crypto-anthropology is emerging. The devil and his children are losing out to the truth of God.
