  1. Lies don't dumb down God's word. He was a giant not a victim of growth hormones. He had 6 finger 6 twos. He was part angel part man. The same thing people fight today. They became evil spirits.

  2. 1 Samuel 17:37 -47(Read).
    It's sad when even the history refuses to get it right. First off David didn't just go out to fight Goliath, swinging his sling. Get it straight if you're going to tell OUR STORY. David gave all the credit, honor and praise to the Creator, the Elohim of Yisrael, and his faith in the great I AM is who delivered up Goliath to David.

  3. And Goliath could see just fine, since he mocked David and how small he was. Also it was said that he looked about and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of fair countenance. Doesn't sound blind to me. You so called historians are laughable! Really!!

  4. In the Bible they are called the nephilim they are the children of demons and demons are the children of God who was the fallen angels that slept with the daughters of man on this earth that produced these Giants monstrosities the bible is the source of information that teaches you about these Giants that they won't tell you.

  5. Hey True Monsters lets simply not for get that there were still a few Giants left around from before the flood. in fact as recently as the giant of Kandahar living in a cave killed by four Marines in 2017.

  6. But soon when the fullness of night is over
    Taken with the god light brightness reflects off the full bloom brightest ever moon I may be the divine god guardian creature of man or biblical scholars never

  7. My great-grandfather was six feet four inches tall, same as Abraham Lincoln – tall, but no giant. My 13 year old grandson is 13 years old, and already 6 feet tall. while his older brother is 15 and 6 feet 4 inches, and still growing.
    There were tribes of giants in the past. Remember when the first 12 spies were sent out to report back on what lay in the land of the Canaanites – the people were so big, they made the Israelites look like grasshoppers! So, they took the advice of the 10 and rejected the 2 who encouraged them to go up and take the land – and God caused them to wander for 40 years through the desert.
    The Bible is actual history – so it's not "legend" but it is the "history" of David and his victory over a giant of a man, named Goliath.

  8. As much that we have learned, we are still in the dark! Superstitious as ever, no common sense, quick to anger! Evidence is kept from the public all the time, the government is the biggest gang on the planet…. Fight the man! lmao…..

  9. They mention Goliath and the Minotaur, both were considered to be the giants that were offspring of fallen watcher angels having children with human women, Genesis 6:4, Book Of Enoch, and the Dead Sea Scrolls Book of Moses, Book of Jubilees, Book of Enoch, Book of Giants. All of these books state that the fallen watcher angels created offspring with humans, and the New Testament states that these offspring that were giants, had 6 fingers + toes, with 2 rows of teeth, noting the difference between them and giant ism, along with the Book of Jubilees stating that they creating offspring with animals, which would appear half human and half animal, (yet was half demon and half animal, explaining the Minotaur.)
    These books also state that the offspring of the Nephilim, or fallen watcher angels, Gensis 6:4, Book of Enoch, etc., were worshiped as gods, their offspring was made king and worshiped as a god on Earth, the human woman impregnated with them were worshiped as a goddess, as this was a promise by the Nephilim to any woman that would bear their offspring. Cannibalism, human sacrifice, were all a part of their rule and reign on Earth as kings worshiped as gods.
    Notice the story of the Minotaur states that the human sacrifices, or people thrown into the labyrinth to be killed and eaten by the creature that looked half human and half bull, "to pay tribute," noting that term used to mean tithe. The Bible uses the term tribute as a tithe, or amount to be paid. They would not have paid a tithe/tribute/tax to the Minotaur unless it was worshiped as a deity, was the king.
    Goliath's grave was moved at one time, BTW, and the grave is now on Muslim territory where it is not for touring in the Holy Lands any longer. The Muslims also have a story of the giants being the offspring of fallen angels. The Holy sites on Muslim lands are not available for the masses to tour, which is why many have never seen the sites. It is akin to the rock split that Moses struck to get water out of, it is in the Muslim territory. The bones of Goliath were not only 6 foot 4 inches, that is someone else's grave.

  10. the first conquistadors in north america encountered indian villages which had a giant 8 9 10 foot tall n they would show them off like a champion they never fought though the missionairies officers n soldiers diaries n journals all reflect this as fact smallpox soon wiped out any giants that were left

  11. David was NOT a punk kid like the stupid commentator said. David was a good Shepard that killed a lion, and, bear to protect his flock. He was anointed to be king, while he was a Shepard. The history channel commentators are ignorant fools. Delete the comment, but, you can't delete the truth.

  12. Let's be real… if Goliath suffered from Gigantism, his mobility would've been drastically limited. He may have been big and tall but that's all the threat he would've presented.
