Mesopotamian perspective

Semitic perspective

  • El → Elohim ⱮՀЭ𐤀𐩴 (Progenitors) →

Hellenistic perspective

  • Primordials → Titans → Demi-gods

Judeo-Christian perspective

  • Elohim אֱלֹהִים → “Sons of God” (Anunnaki) → nephilim

Nephilim (Biblical Hebrew: נָפִיל nĕphiyl, meaning "bully", "tyrant"; possibly "giant",[1] likely a mistranslation[2] for “grand”) are offspring from a union between "princely offspring" and the "daughters of men" as found in apocryphal writings and Hebrew Genesis chapter 6.

MythologyEdit

From the camp that take nĕphiyl to mean “giant”, the nephilim are often equated with demigods (half-gods), typically seen in Babylonian and Greek mythologies.

XenologyEdit

According to Lacerta File 1999 (Commentary), Q&A 29, there were six advanced civilizations of mankind prior to the modern human. These pre civilizations were sequentially seeded by the Illojiim, each advanced in their own way by what was desired by their progenitors. The first civilization is described as a “genetically advanced human breed”. It’s possible that the nĕphiyl were some of the first unknown civilizations who had crafted the numerous archeoastronomical monoliths, that we see today around the world.

NotesEdit

  1. The Anunnaki derive from AN (Anu), the Sumerian god of the sky (Leemings, 2009, p. 21). The name is variously written "da-nuna", "da-nuna-ke4-ne", or "da-nun-na". It is widely accepted by archaeologists to mean "princely offspring" or "offspring of An" (Black & Green, 2009, p.34). These may have been the progenitors from which the nĕphiyl mythology was born.
