Who are these Sons of God in Genesis 6 who had giants for children? Were they fallen angels or men? Is this related to UFOs and aliens? The Seth or Sethite view has some serious problems. Were all the SONS OF GOD the children of Seth? How could all of Seth’s children be male? Seth had no daughters? Were all the DAUGHTERS OF MEN the children of Cain? Did Cain have only daughters as kids? Cain had no sons? How do believers and unbelievers have giants for children?
Two Hebrew words were translated as “Giants” Nephilim, which means “TO FALL” To fall from where, heaven? Genesis 6:4 – “There were giants H5303 in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” Numbers 13:33 – “And there we saw the giants, H5303 the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: H5303 and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” The KJV translates Strong’s: compare H5303 with H5307 in the following manner: fall (318x), fall down (25x), cast (18x), cast down (9x), fall away (5x), divide (5x), overthrow (5x), present (5x), lay (3x), rot (3x), accepted (2x), lie down (2x), inferior (2x), lighted (2x), lost (2x), and Rephaim.
Strong’s Number H7497 matches the Hebrew רְפָאִים (rapha’), which occurs 25 times in 24 verses in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV.

Job 38:4 – “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.” Job 38:5 – “Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?” Job 38:6 – “Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;” Job 38:7 – “When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
How can the sons of God be men since they were shouting for joy when the earth was created? Adam man did not come till AFTER the earth was made.
