There were giants [gigantes = “earth-born”] 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.
And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations [genetically pure], and Noah walked with God.
But as the days of [Noah] were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they [the fallen angels] shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed [serpent=line of Antichrist] and her seed [human=line of the Messiah]; it shall bruise thy head [mortal wound], and thou shalt bruise his heel.
c. 1300, “fabulous man-like creature of enormous size,” from Old French geant, earlier jaiant “giant, ogre” (12c.), from Vulgar Latin *gagantem (nominative gagas), from Latin gigas “a giant,” from Greek Gigas (usually in plural, Gigantes), one of a race of divine but savage and monstrous beings (personifying destructive natural forces), sons of Gaia and Uranus, eventually destroyed by the gods. The word is of unknown origin, probably from a pre-Greek language. Derivation from gegenes”earth-born” is considered untenable.
In þat tyme wer here non hauntes Of no men bot of geauntes. [Wace’s Chronicle, c. 1330]
It replaced Old English ent, eoten, also gigant (from Latin). The Greek word was used in Septuagint to refer to men of great size and strength, hence the expanded use in modern languages; in English of very tall and unusually large persons from 1550s; of persons who have any quality in extraordinary degree from 1530s. As a class of stars, from 1912. As an adjective from early 15c. Giant-killer is from 1726.
Gigantes | The “earth-born”
“The Greek Septuagint renders this term gigantes, which actually means “earth-born.” This is often misunderstood to mean “giants”–which they also happen to have been, incidentally.)

Giga | The Modern Age
Giga– – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Giga (/ˈdʒɪɡə/ or /ˈɡɪɡə/) is a unit prefix in the metric system denoting a factor of a (short-form) billion (109 or 1000000000). It has the symbol G.
Giga is derived from the Greek word γίγας, meaning “giant”. The Oxford English Dictionary reports the earliest written use of giga in this sense to be in the Reports of the IUPAC 14th Conference in 1947: “The following prefixes to abbreviations for the names of units should be used: G giga 109×”.
When referring to information units in computing, such as gigabyte, giga may sometimes mean 1073741824 (230), although such use is inconsistent, contrary to standards and has been discouraged by the standards organizations. The inconsistency is that gigabit is never (or very rarely) used with the binary interpretation of the prefix, while gigabyte is sometimes used this way. The binary prefix gibi has been adopted for 230, while reserving giga exclusively for the metric definition.
GRIN futurism was fleshed out in the recent Sci-Fi thriller “Ex Machina.”
Caleb’s flight to profit Nathan’s home/research facility may well be as remote as Antarctica.
Anxious Caleb asks the helicopter pilot, “When do we get to Nathan’s estate”?
To which the pilot responds, “We’ve been flying over it for the past two hours.”
Deus ex machina (Latin: [ˈdeʊs ɛks ˈmaː.kʰɪ.naː]: /ˈdeɪ.əs ɛks ˈmɑːkiːnə/ or /ˈdiːəs ɛks ˈmækɨnə/; plural: dei ex machina) is acalque from Greek ἀπὸ μηχανῆς θεός (apò mēkhanês theós), meaning “god from the machine”.
Caleb’s job is to assess whether or not Ava is self-aware, exhibiting true Artificial Intelligence.
(If Nathan is the profit/prophet, than Caleb must be the giant killer, Joshua’s partner with whom he spied out the land of the giants — Canaan.)
Man was created of the dust (clay) of the earth.
GRIN (Genetics. Robotics. Info. Nano.) is the creation of man.
Clay and iron are the fusion of man and machine, GRIN, “earth-born”, seed of the serpent – Gigantus Robotus Satanus.
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
Although, the case is clear for literal giants, of great stature and supernatural strength and no other commentary synthesizes the totality of Scripture more accurately than the fallen angel corruption of the human genome, it is interesting to note “earth-born” could be extended to the emergent technology tsunami that is set to crest and crush humanity to obsolescence.
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts [micro and macro] of the earth.
Scientists to ‘awaken’ bug that has laid dormant for 30k years | Daily Mail Online
Resurrecting a monster virus: Scientists to ‘awaken’ bug that has laid dormant in frozen Siberian wastelands for 30,000 years
Virus is called Mollivirus sibericum, which means ‘soft virus from Siberia’
It is an oval shape and measures 0.6 microns, making it a ‘giant’ virus
The bug was discovered in the permafrost of northeastern Russia
Experts warn that climate change awaken more dangerous pathogens
‘These four types of giant virus exhibit different structures, sizes, genome length, and replication cycles.
‘Their origin and mode of evolution are the subject of conflicting hypotheses.
Unlike most viruses circulating today, these ancient specimens are not only bigger, but are far more complex genetically
By teasing genetic details out of these precious samples and from autopsy tissues stored in formalin, the team reconstructed the code for the virus’ eight genes.
The work was done in a top-security lab at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
