Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men (Farrell)

Farrell, Joseph P. Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men.

Farrell, Joseph P.

The structure of Farrell’s argument is sound and impressive.  I have no real disagreement with him on that point.  His content, unfortunately, is often badly mistaken. He builds on his earlier Cosmic War thesis.  According to that thesis, if there were survivors to the cosmic war, then they would have found a way to pass on that knowledge.

So far, so good.  Unfortunately, his analysis of biblical scholarship is painfully inadequate. He is 150 years behind the times. He thinks the term “Yahweh” derives from a minor figure in the Babylonian pantheon. That is bad enough, but at other times, especially in his use of the O’Brien’s work, he comes close to suggesting Yahweh is actually a demigod or even Nephilim! 

When someone makes these claims, we must examine the scholarship.  Farrell starts well.  He debunks the Documentary Hypothesis and in doing so draws upon the excellent work of Gleason Archer. Towards the middle of the book, however, he utilizes no such scholarship, opting instead for the fringe, and quite frankly bizarre, research of the O’Briens. This is not the Farrell we know of Maximus, JFK, and Roswell fame.

The structure of the book is worth considering in detail.  In fact, a small outline of it will serve just as well as a review.

  1. Elites did survive such a war and they are scattered in pockets over the globe.
  2. These elites had certain agendas that included technological advances.  One should note, however, that Farrell does not subscribe to the ancient alien hypothesis.  These elites are human (or perhaps Fallen Watchers, though he does not entertain that idea).
    1. These agendas were both hidden and open.
  3. If these elites have certain goals, then they must ensure these goals continue over time.  That means common networks, etc.
  4. Farrell reads the Enuma Elish literally: a cosmic war between Marduk and Tiamat.  Marduk employed some form of torsion physics, a bending and pleating of space-time.
  5. Both ancient and modern civilizations engaged in “genome” wars.
    1. Farrell notes similarities between the I Ching and DNA.
    2. He sees both having an analogical structure, information-creating systems, and a torsion moment of rotational characteristics.

The title of the book suggests that the nephilim are involved. They are, but they are not as important as one may think. I think it is irrelevant whether we find Nephilim skeletons around the world. I think they exist, and I think it is funny when standard historical models are upset, but I do not have a lot riding on it.
