Dedication
 

For Raini
.

 

Thanks for loving me through the process
and putting up with
my vacant pillow
on those dark, late nights
when the Muse came calling.

 
Acknowledgments
 

Two things I learned while writing this book: One is that it is far less daunting
writing
a book than it is
completing
a book. And two, the process itself would be much less fraught with distraction and delay were my office located
outside
my home. And on the heels of having said that, I want to thank my wife, Raini, who did everything in her power to help keep the process streamlined, while wrangling our toddler son, Flynn. I want to thank her for all the cups of coffee and meals she brought to me here at my desk while I stared at this computer screen and tapped away at the keyboard. That’s love. Her burgeoning pregnancy swelled during the writing of this book, and we watched the baby girl kick as I read and re-read and re-re-read this book out loud to her. Without Raini, this monumental task would have been far less enjoyable a process, and I want to express how happy I am that she was here.

 

My dear friend Marie D. Jones, a well-established author, has not only been a friend, but a great sounding board. It was Marie who saw my manuscript before it was really even a manuscript at all, and encouraged me to pursue it to its present form. She has been a great help, listening to my woes, worries, caterwauling, excitements, and downright exhausted frustrations. I want to thank her for reading, critiquing, and encouraging. Without her, this book would not be a reality.

 

Craig Hines is a true friend and a grossly out-of-proportion inspiration. From the day we first met, we have engaged in many conversations fraught with philosophy, theology, cosmology, and just about every “-ology” in between. He is a true scholar and has been an invaluable source and encouragement as I wrote this book.

 

Micah Hanks of the
GralienReport.com
has been a friend who has kept the fire burning beneath my feet. There were times I seriously considering quitting, but he read the early manuscript and was an uplifting source of encouragement. Thanks for being there, Micah.

 

Dr. Charles Aling, while you may not agree with everything I have written in this book, I want to thank you for being the very first person who ever instilled in me a love of biblical mysteries and archaeology. From the very first time you sat down with me in the crowded narthex of our church, way back when I was 12 years old and doing a report on the Pharaoh of the Exodus, you have always been willing to be my consultant, my seminary professor, and now my friend. Thank you for the irreplaceable spot you hold in my heart and mind. And thank you for instilling in me the love of history.

 

My daughters Abigail and Bryn are the lights of my life. They have always been there believing in everything I do, every step of the way. Now they are out on their own and I want to let them know how much I believe in them.

 

Sam, I am so happy you are here. Sorry for all the postponed walks and excursions while I was completing this book. I look forward to spending some extra time with you in the upcoming weeks.

 

Flynn, while you are too young to remember these things with any clarity later on in life, your many interruptions, coffee-cup tippings, and general calls for my attention are eclipsed by my wonderful memories of you sitting in my lap while I typed. You are a complete joy to me and a living response to the question “Why?”

 

For all of you who have enjoyed my lectures and writing over the years, thank you for your support, encouragement, and for being here.

About the Author

 
Foreword
 

The first drop of water splashed atop his head unexpectedly, causing him to cease his work and glance upward. He wiped the sweat from his brow, his tired eyes struggling to focus on the darkness forming in the heavens above. Another raindrop fell against his skin, and his gaze returned to the ground. His own reflection rippled chaotically across the newly formed puddles at his feet. As a crowd began to gather around him, his trembling hands reached for his tools and collected them into his arms. It was time.

 

“Is this your lord’s great deluge, Noah, you mad man?” yelled one of the bystanders, inciting the rest of the mob to laugh mockingly amongst themselves.

 

Suddenly, a loud crack of thunder boomed and cut through the crowd’s licentious laughter. They were instantly silent as uneasiness began to rise up within their guts, much like the pools of water growing beneath their feet.

 

Noah rushed toward the ark, the anxious voices of his family calling to him from within the wooden structure. His progress was hindered as he trudged through the mud and water. Although his sandal became lodged in the mire, he slipped his foot free and continued to run. He refused to be deterred by the unrelenting shouts and panicking cries of his pursuers. His sons hurried him aboard and began to draw the large door closed.

 

From inside, Noah could hear the screams of the people he once called friends—their bloodied fists clawing and thumping against the wooden structure. He rested himself against a support beam, desperately trying to catch his breath. Before long, he collapsed to the floor in a sobbing mess. The cacophony was too horrible to bear and threatened to drive him to madness. Yet he soon found relief as it was drowned out by the pounding of the rain, as though millions of stones were pummeling the rooftop. He wanted to help, but he knew that it was too late for them. It had been too late long before the rains had ever started.

 

Much like the ripples created by the rainwater in Noah’s tale, the events surrounding this epic legend have flowed throughout history and on through the present day. However, just like the natural side effect of such ripples, the crystal-clear images and reflections produced by the still waters of the past have now become distorted and difficult to comprehend. We are expected to make sense of it all, but centuries of repression, persecution, political agendas, wars, and even the mundane activities of the world have washed away the clues and data necessary to bring clarity to the situation.

 

For example, many people insist that they are familiar with the story of Noah’s Ark, but the vast majority of them only know the simplified and largely censored version that they were taught as children. Ancient accounts describing the mating of angelic beings with humans, the birth of their hybrid offspring known as the Nephilim, and the disastrous consequences of such affairs are, if you will pardon the expression, completely alien to most people. Week after week, the faithful flock to places of worship to hear sermons and receive holy guidance in their lives, yet some of the most significant details or implications of the story are never brought to their attention. Most of these individuals will be happy to tell you about Noah, his family, the construction of the ark, how many of each animal were on-board, and so on; but their enthusiastic countenance will quickly diminish into one of bewilderment at the mere mention of the Nephilim.

 

“The Nefa-what?”

 

Exactly.

 

It is precisely this reason that a book like this needed to be written. If you have never heard of the Nephilim, this book will serve as an excellent introduction to the subject. Even those who are well-versed in the archaic lore of the fallen angels will find some new and interesting information to add to the ever-expanding field of research materials and notes. Scott Roberts is the ideal guide for those who wish to revisit this complex subject, as well as those who are learning about these ideas for the first time.

 

I first encountered the research of Scott Roberts within the pages of the June 2008 issue of
TAPS Paramagazine
and his article on the antediluvian race of beings known as the Nephilim. Scott’s fascination and passion for the topic were evident, and I was humbled that he cited my book,
Gateway of the Gods
(Numina Media Arts, 2007), as a primary source and recommended reading to his audience. Little did I know that at the same time I was composing a message to thank him for acknowledging my research in his article, he was contemplating if he should contact me. After a few e-mail exchanges and enthusiastic phone calls, a new friendship was born.

 

Since that time, I have been interviewed on Scott’s radio show on several occasions, and even spoke alongside him in collaborative presentations at paranormal conferences. One of Scott’s foremost traits is an eagerness to ask questions and to learn, and he is often enthralled by the process of examining and interpreting evidence. He is just as fascinated by the topic now as he was years ago—probably even more so. Beyond that, however, are his willingness and determination to teach and share what he has learned over the years, including all of the ups and downs, pitfalls, and dead-ends that he has encountered. Scott and I may not always agree on certain interpretations or theories, but we both acknowledge and respect that there are not always definitive answers to the questions we pose, and that we are each seeking different pieces of the same puzzle.
