How did the Fallen Angels produce Giants?

The Genesis 6 experiment


Genesis 6:4


“The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.”


These are angels, not the sons of Seth.  How do you produce giants if they were simply the offspring of Seth?  The “Sons of God” are angels throughout the other texts.  (See Job 1:6 and 2:1)




How did the Fallen Angels produce Giants?


The women bore children to these Fallen Angels. (Genesis 6:4)


In all my researching of this account, it has never been explained how the angels took women and the women bore children to them.  Did the angels have coitus with the women?  How is it that angels had the capability to have coitus with women?  Do angels have sexual organs and produce sperm in heaven?  Are there male and female angels in Heaven such that they bear angel children? 


Jesus seems to counter-indicate this in Matthew 22:29-30


“But Jesus answered them, ‘You are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God.  For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.’”


Some indicate they took human form.  


Rob indicates angels have their own bodies.  How would that work?  In addition, if the Fallen Angels took the form of human bodies, how was the sperm with which they impregnated these women not fully human?  We’re back to the question of, “How did that produce giants?”


  Did these human bodies produce “angel sperm”? 


If they retained their ability to produce “angel sperm” in these bodies, why would an angel produce sperm to begin with?  And why would “angel sperm” be compatible at all with human reproduction?


Scripture clearly indicates that Nephilim offspring were the result of the Fallen Angels being desirous of the human women (Genesis 6:2), so there must have been some pleasure involved in this mating.


God changed the nature of humans so angels could no longer breed with them.


Daniel 2:43


“And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.


“God changed the nature of man so Nephilim could no longer breed with mankind via sex.” —Rob Skiba


But Jubilees expands this concept.


Jubilees 5:12 …


“And their fathers [the Watchers] were witnesses of their [the 1st generation Nephilim] destruction, and after this they were bound in the depths of the earth for ever, until the day of the great condemnation when judgment is executed on all those who have corrupted their ways and their works before the Lord. And He destroyed all from their places and there was not left one of them whom He judged not according to all their wickedness.  And He made for all of His works a new and righteous nature, so that they should not sin in their whole nature for ever, but should be all righteous each in his kind always.”


I think Rob is thinking too narrowly here.  Before the “incursion,” there was no such thing as coitus, in man nor animal. 


Rather than God changing the nature of man, Jubilees 5:12 says God, “made for all of His works a new and righteous nature.  Not just for mankind, but for all of His works.  I submit that before the judgment of the Watchers (the Fallen Angels), Creatures did not reproduce the way they do today.  Perhaps the initiation of a life did not even involve sperm; life did not initiate from sperm and egg, or perhaps the insemination was initiated some other way.


It could be that two beings, just touching in a particular way, would cause the mixing of seed and the instantiation of new life.  This is just an example of a mechanism different from what we have today. 


This removes the requirement that Angels would have sperm and explain why Angels can no longer mate with humans after the punishment.
