Eh heh heh.
Nephilim show up in the Bible (Yep, I believe in the Bible) and if you study them a bit, they are quite mysterious.
Basically the whole concept is that when Angels came and bred with Humans (Which is why God initiated the Flood...) the result were Nephilim: Half-angel/Half-human. Now what happens when you kill such a thing? What happens to the Angel component? Angels don't really die. They are spirits, although they can materialize in human form. The theory is that the half-angel parts of the Nephilim became commonly known as demons.
Most people think of demons as the "fallen angels" that followed Satan/Lucifer, however this doesn't make sense. Demons are always trying to possess something. To obtain a body of some sort. Angels can just materialize...like that. They don't need a "host" as it were.
My theory is that the nephilim/demons are really what is behind all these paranormal creatures. Aliens (note: from research I've seen, aliens are always abducting people to figure out how to reproduce. To find a body. Maybe they have some patched-up foul body and are trying to breed a host race?) and whatnot. Ghosts: demons.
I do also believe that many "sightings" of the paranormal are, indeed, hallucinations.
Now that you are totally freaked out and think I am a complete psychopath...I'll shut up!
P.S. this was not meant to derail the thread into a "Do you believe in the Bible" debate. There's a thread for that in the debate section. If you wanna take it up, PM me and we can go there!
