  • Argumentative Essay: Do Giants Exist?

    fallen angels and men (answersingenesis). Though the bible does not state the heights of this tribe they are regarded as giants because the translation of Nephilim from Hebrew is ‘giant’ (answersingemesis.com). Also, they were described as “mighty men of old” (answersingenesis.com). The Rephaim are another tribe of giants that is mentioned in the bible.

Considering the height of the king’s bed as one premise, and giants are humans over 10 ft tall another premise, the conclusion that King Og is a giant is not valid since the fact that his bed was about 13.5 feet does not certify that Og himself was a giant. Since the Bible is a standard of truth for many people, despite the lack of concrete proof that giants exist, the interpretation of the accounts in the bible supporting their existence serves as a foundation for their belief.

The conviction of a Reverend about the previous existence of Giants led a man named “Hull” to develop one of the most widely believed hoaxes of the 19th century in American History. On October 16, 1869, a 10ft tall “stone” Giant was found near the…
