If you have ever heard of the Nephilim, then you will really appreciate this discovery. Nephilims have made a name for themselves as the biggest men ever known. Newly discovered fossilized footprints have now been found in Tanzania, and these have now given us new insight into how tall the Nephilim may have grown.
According to the team led by Fidelis T Masao of the University of Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, the footprints were 26 centimeters long, and that means the individual who made them would have been about 165 centimeters tall while he would have weighed 45 kilograms. Although that’s a pretty different number from those we may have imagined the Nephilim to be, it gives us a fitting description of what they are since many studies have called them the “giants” of their time.
The mysterious footprints have been named footprint-maker S1 which also happens to be the name of the site in Laetoli Tanzania. The team said they suspect that the footprint belongs to a Nephilim as imagined, but quickly stated that they need more evidence to make this a concrete conclusion.
In the discovery of footprints, many know of the popular A.afarensis, which were of the same species as “Lucy”, famous skeletons that were discovered in Ethiopia some decades ago. Lucy was said to stand at about 106cm, which means they may not be the owners of these footprints.
Since A.afarensis depicts a giant, though smaller than S1, we can reach the conclusion that A.afarensis were descendants of S1 and that could explain the difference in sizes. Another thing that could prove that as a fact is the discovery of three footprints back in the 1970s, and these three are just 150 meters away from the spot where the S1 footprints have been discovered. This now points the study in two directions—it’s either this individual had a rare stature or that these heights were common back then, considering that we also see footprints of A-afarensis in this area.
Well, the conclusion comes as a real blow to the evolution theory, how? Well, 165cm isn’t exactly too tall judging by today’s standards, and we can only conclude that the humans who really own these footprints are around the same heights as we are today, and most likely bigger and taller than the average man.
