Notes from March 30, 2003

The Nephilim

(1) Genesis 6:4 refers to beings called Nephilim

"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown."

In the Old Testament "Sons of God" is used to mean angels.

Therefore this verse tells us that fallen angels had children with human women. These offspring were beings with special powers (they were "heros of old" and "men of reknown").

Francis Schaeffer said myths, though contorted, have historical basis. And one myth that occurs over and over in all parts of the world is that a long time ago supernatural beings had sexual intercourse with natural women and produced a special breed of people.

(2) Some ancient civilisations reveal technologies that resemble those of the modern era

  • Pyramids of the 4th Egyptian dynasty - even today we cannot explain how they were built
  • Modern craft depicted in the hieroglyphics at Abydos Temple
  • Commonplace references to ancient flying machines (Vimanas) in the Vedic literature of India (see "A Tribute to Hinduism")
  • An article in World Island Review in Jan 1992 reports that an ancient city found in India iradiated by nuclear blast 8,000 years ago: Scientists unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows that an atomic blast dating back thousands of years destroyed most of the buildings and probably half a million people. A researcher estimates that the nuclear bomb used was about the size dropped on Japan in 1945. (Read the excerpt.)

(3) The Nephilim somehow survived the Flood

Gen 6:4

"The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward"

Yet, Gen 7:21 says

"All flesh that moved on the earth perished"

Dr. Aw's conjecture is that the Nephilim went to Mars. Supporting this proposition is:

  • Evidence of water on Mars
  • Evidence of a civilisation on Mars similar to the Egyptians in the 4th dynasty
  • Face on Mars
  • Tunnels on Mars

    (Some slides similar to those shown by Dr. Aw can be found in "Artificial Structures on Mars".)

  • Arthur C. Clark said that the photos from the Jet Propulsion Laboratories has convinced him that we have discovered life on Mars

(4) Legends tell of ancient non-humans who introduced advanced culture and technology

Evidence supporting some truth behind these legends are:

  • Abnormally shaped skulls of ancient rulers
  • Evidence of complicated operations done on ancient mummies
  • DNA sequencing of Neanderthals shows they were not quite human, could they have been a product of genetic engineering?
  • UFOs in ancient art (note the religious connotations)

[Recording ends at this point]

(5) Implications for us

Dr. Aw suggests that the role of the Nephilim today is to convince people that Jesus was an extraterrestrial and thereby distort the gospel and deny that Jesus is the Son of God.

Ephesians 6:12 says:

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."

Dr. Aw quoted UFO researcher, Dr. Jacques Vallee:

"[UFOs are] are helping to create a new form of belief; an expectation of actual contact among large parts of the public. In turn this expectation makes millions of people hope for the imminent realization of that age-old dream; salvation from above, surrender to the greater power of some wise navigators of the cosmos."

(This quote can be found in "How are UFOs impacting mankind?", Ankerberg Theological Research Institute.)

But the salvation referred to is a technological salvation, not salvation from sin.

The final slides are of 2 Thessalonians 3:3, "But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one", and the Cross at Calvary, where our burden of sin comes off.
