The The Rise and Fall Of the Nephilim – Scotty Roberts On C2C With George Noory [video]_Featured_, Reality's Edge, Videos Saturday, October 20th, 2012
Paranormal investigator and author Scotty Roberts discusses his research into the Nephilim and their origins on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. Roberts explained that his investigation of the infamous entities focused on the language of the original Hebrew texts where they are described. As such, he dismissed the popular notion that the Nephilim were “fallen angels,” since the entities are never given that moniker. Rather, they are said to be the result of a union between “watchers” and humans. Roberts theorized that the creation of the Nephilim could be traced all the way back to the Garden of Eden and a dalliance between Eve and an entity metaphorically called a “serpent.” As to the origins of these “visitors” who played a hand in creating the Nephilim, he acknowledged that they could have been spiritual beings, “minor Gods,” or even extraterrestrials.
Ultimately, Roberts said, these Nephilim are blamed for corrupting the human race by sharing forbidden knowledge with them, a theme appears in many creation stories. In light of this corruption, he surmised, the great flood of Noah’s Ark lore was orchestrated not to punish the corrupt humans, but to wipe away the presence of the Nephilim on Earth. However, Roberts suggested that the Nephilim may still be on the planet as what we call “demons.” He cited a passage in the book of Enoch which says that the “spirits” of the Nephilim that died in the flood remained on Earth in a ghostly form to “wreak the same havoc, from a spirit form, on humanity that they wreaked while in physical form.”
Scotty Roberts’ background is laced with varied and diverse skills and experience. After two years in a Christian bible college, he entered seminary pursuing his Masters in Divinity (Mdiv). During his college and seminary studies, he focused on his academic and personal passion for history, theater and art. His religious studies intensified his interest in spirituality, and his research of the Paranormal expanded throughout the 80s and 90s. Scotty is currently continuing his investigations of historical and haunted sites, and has been working on the development of the TV show “Dead Reckoning” since March of 2008.
The Nephilim were the offspring of the “sons of God” and the “daughters of men” according to Genesis 6:4; and gigantic men who inhabited Canaan according to Numbers 13:33. A similar biblical Hebrew word with different vowel-sounds is used in Ezekiel 32:27 to refer to dead Philistine warriors.
Fallen angel is a concept that is typically synonymous with a wicked or rebellious angel. As the actual term fallen angel is not found in either the Hebrew Bible or the Deuterocanonical Books or the New Testament, biblical commentators use this term to describe angels who sinned or angels cast down to the earth from the War in Heaven, Satan, demons, or certain Watchers.
A Jewish myth of angels coming down to earth rather than being cast down, referred to as the myth of angelic descent, is found chiefly in the Jewish pseudepigraphic Book of Enoch, 6-9 and the Qumran Book of Giants and perhaps in Genesis 6:1-4. The angels in question were Watchers who were inveigled by the beauty of human women, had intercourse with them and corrupted mankind.They were the prime instigators of the sinfulness that led to the Great Deluge.This myth was adopted by early Christianity, but abandoned by Rabbinic Judaism and later Christianity. During the period immediately before the rise of Christianity, the intercourse between these Watchers and human women was often seen as the first fall of the angels.
