Six-fingered Giants

The Six-fingered Hand

The Six-fingered Hand

The book of 2 Samuel describes a Giant with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot:

In still another battle, which took place at Gath, there was a huge man with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot—twenty-four in all. He also was descended from the Giants. When he taunted Israel, Jonathan son of Shimeah, David’s brother, killed him. (2 Sam. 21.20-21)

A Norwegian polydactylyphile by the name of Terje “Terry” Dahl has amassed a virtual statuary of six-fingered figures from around the world, which he believes furnishes evidence of the one-time ubiquity of Giants. You can view his collection on his website.

    Finding art of six-fingered people is not evidence of a special race’s existence. That would be like in 4,000 people found X-Men comics books and thinking that mutants with special abilities were real.

    Evidence would be a corpse, but not just one – hundreds of them. Nothing like this has been found. The Bible is a myth, deal with it.

      Hundreds of corpses do not have to be found to prove pterodactyly –err polydactyly exists. It is fairly common today, thousands of people have it. It can be genetic. Bible only mentions one such man, and only about a dozen giants by name, so neither six fingered men or 9 foot giants were common in the Bible — just obscure recollections of abnormal people.

      The Bible is mythic in nature, but has a very great deal of history. I mean from the Books of say, Judges and onward it has a very great deal of historic information, probably half the kings of Judah and Israel are attested in other ancient near eastern sources… that’s pretty darn good.

        Hmmm, its kinda odd that you think that the bible is mythical.There is evidence that supports the fact that angels came to earth and took human women as wives and spawned a race of giants which had 6 fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot and a double row of teeth. They are finding the skeletons of these giants all over the earth.

    Yes. I know where some are likely still kept. ;) Just because something has mythic nature doesn’t make it false. I personally think the Nephilim legend directly connects to the Greek Titan stories, or rather, I believe the Titan stories have origins in Asia Minor and Canaan — the region of Mt. Lebanon, Hermon, and Bathaan, or Bashan… Land of the serpent. ;)

    The Bible is not myth…in fact archaeology is backing it up more and more all the time. Do your homework boys. I remind you you that there is a principle that does not fail to keep men ignorant…that’s contempt prior to investigation,


  4. smart people are finally wakeing up from there deep sleep so to speak . may the true god and apposer of the prince of DARKNESS have comppasion for his children that wait for the appointed time when he rids the earth of those who mock and bring accusations against his being. Praise the almighty whos name no one can know how to rightfully pronounce any longer, we can only hope that yahweh;jehovah or allah will find favour with the true god of abraham.

    Hey, dummy, hundreds of corpses have been found. Theyre dug up all the time . Do you really think hundreds of millions of dollars are spent each year to go discover clay pots?
