Were people at the time of Noah much taller, let say 9 ft tall? There are skeleton remains of giants found. Are there the ones the Bible teaches? The earth before the flood, was so different then it was now. First there was water above the earth and under the earth. Secondly, though i am not sure where i got that info, the earth had a higher concentration of Oxygen, making people, even animals bigger, then what people are today. And yes making a Cubit a lot bigger, so a bigger ark. Also made animals and people live a lot older. IF the atmosphere was different before the flood the carbon dating wouldn't work for any thing that died before the flood.

Anyway. Do you think Noah was a giant?

Before considering the remains from the Nephilim of Noah's time, you may want to research your questions on an urban legends website. There's a lot of hoax out there, unless one choses to believe in sharks attacking Navy SEALS, mermaids, pictures of the Space Shuttle explosion, or a tidal wave hitting a coastal community.

Noah was four cubits high , so in interpretation if Noah arm length was Big His cubit would make him a Big man , or if Noah had a small arm his cubit would make him a small man , the size of a cubit it the forearm to the tips of the fingers and cubits are any thing from 18 inches to 24 inches long each

Noah was of normal (average height); His blood line (& family members) were not infected with the dna of the Nephilim.

And Noah and his generations were all perfect; Genesis 6:9

WE know for a fact one of the sons committed a grave sin later. It doesn't mean they were sinless - Their bloodline was pure.

In Genesis chapter 5 we are given the names of the ten generations of Noah.

"Hidden" in plain sight is the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

It is the Glory of God to conceal a matter ... Proverbs 25:2
Search the scriptures as for hidden treasure(s). Proverbs 2:4

Hebrew - English
Adam - Man [is]
Seth - Appointed
Enosh - Mortal
Kenan - Sorrow;
Mahalalel - The Blessed God
Jared - Shall come down
Enoch - Teaching
Methuselah - His death shall bring
Lamech - The Despairing
Noah - Rest, or comfort.

Most people are unaware that Enoch knew in advance the exact day of the flood.
The flood would not happen until Methuselah died!

Methuselah was the oldest man recorded in the bible; Yet he died before... His father!

Tall enough, but not a giant a such is an abnormality.

You apparently seriously doubt that which is true and enthusiastically embrace that which is demonstrably false.

I can't believe people are still believing this BS. Some people are so gullible. The Misslerites have come out in full force.

PaleoBabble | Your antidote to cyber-twaddle and misguided research about the ancient world.

Scroll down to Jan.5 2014

And this Genesis Chapter 5 Genealogy is also bunk.

The Naked Bible Allegorical Interpretation of the Names in Genesis 5

The guy who does this blog is a Christian so I don't want any crying about the source. He also deals with the whole Anunnaki/Giants BS of Zacharia Sitchin and his butchery of Sumerian Literature.

Now go and learn how to learn.
