A very quick question (physics/biological apporoach)
I know we are trying to limit the people in this debate - so I am going to pose one very quick question, then a response to the answer (and maybe a further question of clarification) and then bow out to allow other people to take their licks.

How tall are you suggesting the Nephilim are?

(so I'm really asking "how tall is a giant?")

reply to myself (physics/biological apporoach)
OK - This site:

http://www.bibleprobe.com/blog/?cat=13

seems to suggest that they could be up-to 25 feet tall. This causes a problem with the squared cube law*.

If we double a man's size, his muscle power will increase four times but his weight will increase eight times. Therefore his strength is halved. In addition, his leg bones will only increase by the square of his height but his weight will increase by the cube.

What does that mean for a practical example?

If we take a 6ft man who weights 200lbs and can lift 100lbs, if we factor him upto 12ft, then his weight goes to 1,600lbs but his strength only goes to 400lbs. Snaps goes his legs......

And if we double again.....

* I'll proceed on the basis that you understand the squared cube law and don't need a detailed explanation of it.

(A more detailed explanation of this problem can be found in (of all places) "The science of Superheros" by Gresh and Weinberg).

I doubt it was intended as such - it means Point Refutted A Thousand Times.

Answers in genesis
You could post it but prepare for the response - AIG has no credibility at all and is generally seen as a crank site by atheists and less hardcore Christians alike.

The simple rule of thumb seems to be "if it's on AIG - it's not true".

Edited by CK, : No reason given.
