The Origin Of Bigfoot: An Alternative Theory
Nephilim? Or Something Else Entirely?

Nephilim? Or Something Else Entirely?
By Dorraine Fisher
Some like to believe bigfoot is a modern version of the once believed extinct ape, gigantopithecus. Some believe them to be fellow humans, especially in light of current claims by Dr. Melba Ketchum and the Sasquatch Genome Project. And others take a more biblical stance and believe them to be the giant fallen angels of the Old Testament. The Nephilim. The offspring of union between The Sons of God and the Daughters of Man. To atheists, this theory isn’t even worth mentioning. But I think all theories may be relevant to a bigger picture. At any rate, we shouldn’t ignore them until all questions have been answered satisfactorily.
So here goes.
According to the story in Genesis 6:4, the sons of God who occupied Canaan were checking out human women, or daughters of men there and liked what they saw. And they mated with them, thus creating the offspring disagreeable to God, forever known as the Nephilim, or fallen ones. They were considered to be fallen angels, and curiously, giants. And the claim that they were described as giants causes some bigfoot believers to believe they were, in fact, the ancestors of our modern day bigfoot.
And it’s an important question to ask. But this theory has always bothered me. If bigfoot is the product of this union, how did this offspring of gods and humans become this hairy beast witnesses claim to have seen around the world? And if these beings were fallen angels; troublemakers of sorts, then why aren’t they making themselves known and wreaking havoc everywhere to this day? These quiet, shy, reclusive creatures are hiding from us very well and causing no problems at all for the human race. So, though I always say that I don’t ask anyone to replace their own ideas with mine, this story just doesn’t work for me.
But there’s another one that might. And it comes from my previous discussions about Intervention Theory.
Intervention theory is based on the interpretations of linguist and researcher Zecharia Sitchins who first cracked the code of the ancient Sumerian texts and attempted to tell the world this controversial story of human creation based on these texts.
Sitchins tells the story of the Annunaki who occupied Iraq some 250,000 years ago. They were beings that had come here from another planet known as Nibiru looking for the gold they needed to fix their atmosphere.
But they found this mining for gold here to be tedious, and they didn’t like doing it. So they proposed an idea to use their own DNA to genetically manipulate the very unimpressive hominids that already occupied the planet, believed by some to be homoerectus, and make workers out of them for mining the gold. If this story is in fact true, these beings they needed to create would have to be controllable, have good manual dexterity, just intelligent enough to do the work, but not so intelligent as to cause problems for them or question their authority. And they needed to be able to breed on their own.
And so, it is said, the Annunaki got to work in the lab, manipulated some DNA and created us. And they called us Adamu, which is curiously close to the name Adam in the bible.
But where does bigfoot come in?
Part of the reason I rejected nephilim theory is because I think it’s necessary to weigh the information afforded by every source available. Not just one. And part of the reason I reject nephilim theory is due to Native American legends of Sasquatch. Many native stories refer to Sasquatch as “our brother.” And they claim that sasquatch was here first. Before us. If you aspire to the idea that there may be a lot of truth in legends, and if there is any truth to Native American legends about these creatures, then it blows nephilim theory out of the water. If they (bigfoot) were here before us, there is no way they could have been the product of any human/demi-god hybridization. And if they are “our brother,” then that suggests, curiously, that we have the same parents.
Recent DNA findings about Bigfoot suggest that the maternal side of the DNA of these beings is made up of human DNA, while the nuclear DNA is completely unknown to us, or curiously referred to as “alien” DNA.
In parallel, humans also have DNA that can’t be matched up to any other creature on this planet. Once called junk DNA, it is now often referred to as, you guessed it, alien DNA. So we’re both pretty much made up of the same stuff. Human and alien.
So, are these creatures, in fact, our brothers as Native American legends claim?
Let’s contemplate a possible scenario.
If the so-called “gods” or aliens were experimenting with DNA in a lab trying to create the perfect worker to mine their gold, is it reasonable to assume they might not have been really experienced in creating exactly what they wanted the first time. Is it reasonable to imagine they might have made a few errors along the way before they believed they created the perfect product?
Did one of those errors result in the bigfoot creature we know today?
These experiments could have created many different types of hybrids before they came up with the results they were looking for. And if we think about what they were trying to accomplish with these experiments, bigfoot would have been all wrong for the task. Yes, they had the strength, but they may have been a little too far on the wild side. Too much the free spirits and children of nature, and perhaps even much too intelligent to be tied to manual labor. And, most importantly, they may have lacked the manual dexterity required to operate the tools needed to do mining work.
And we might even be able to imagine the “gods” created a fair number of these beings before realizing they were all wrong. And their free spirits combined with their super strength and intelligence may have caused them to escape off into the forest and hide from all of us forever. Never to be enslaved again.
Sasquatch are assigned so many different inexplicable abilities. Does the theory that they are half “god” make these more plausible?
But if they are half-god, then so are we.
And I think it’s also important to mention that I maintain our human-like ancestors such as Neanderthals and homoerectus were probably covered in hair, contrary to what science has always told us. There is no real evidence to support the existence of a hairless hominid. I believe it may be the alien side of our DNA that makes us hairless, because hairlessness serves no purpose for us in the real world... unless we aren’t entirely of this world. But scientists are still trying to come up with a plausible explanation for the hairlessness. At any rate, this union could have caused a hairless alien/hair-covered homoerectus hybridization to result in a very tall, very hairy offspring like a bigfoot-type creature, every bit as easily as it could have resulted in a smaller, hairless creation like us.

Just like the offspring of two different races that can produce a child of one color and a second child of the other color, are we humans and sasquatches just two different types of children from the same parents?
The Annunaki were believed by humans to be gods. Or at least they seemed like gods to the simple-minded early humans describing them at the time. They were said to be 8 to 10 feet tall and have the ability to shapeshift and do other things humans deemed magical. It’s also possible they spoke telepathically, and they were said to have commanded some amazing technology. And the Sumerian texts, according to Sitchins, tell the story of how they created us.
Sasquatches are believed by some to possess abilities that may seem paranormal or alien to us. But do they (sasquatches) believe the same thing about us humans? Does our technology and reckless behavior with our resources remind them of the so-called gods that may be our creators. Maybe sasquatches avoid us so strongly because they associate us with our Annunaki creators that occupied the planet so long ago and created us in their image. Maybe our appearance scares them so much that they’ve adapted some amazing skills to avoid us. Or maybe those skills were unintended gifts from our creators.
