The story of Nephilim, giants who roamed the earth, is a past not recognized as true history in the ivory towers of academia. Yet, our culture is drenched with stories and statues of strange mythological characters, from 400 foot titans, to hybrid beings, to gods who ruled over the humans. Even today, our pop culture has a fascination for werewolves, zombies, and vampires which begs the question, where did such ideas come from? Does it have anything to do with the antediluvian world, and the advent of the Nephilim? And while these are dismissed as mere fiction or primitive attempts of the ancients to describe what they did not understand, some of us believe that the truth is in fact stranger than fiction. Dr. Judd Burton, is the author of ‘Interview with the Giant: Ethnohistorical Notes on the Nephilim‘, and holds an MA in anthropology and a PhD in history at Texas Tech University with a focus on Early Christianity and Greco-Roman religions. His website, Burton Beyond is devoted to conducting sound research in the fields of archaeology, biblical studies, ethnology, folklore, history, mythology, paranormal studies, philosophy, and religion, which could collectively be described as para-ethnology.
