I have come to believe that there were giants in ancient times, and specific persons behind myths like the reference below. It never occurred to me to think that, perhaps in part due to their enormous size and perhaps due to their “water-serpent” dna, they spent a lot of time in the water.
“Neptune is the Bistea Neptunis — the Beast out of the Sea and Orion was his son. As the son of the Beast out of the sea, it is interesting that Orion has 17 stars, equaling 7 heads and 10 horns:
“The total [of stars in Orion] is seventeen. Hesiod says this is Neptune’s son by Euryale… To him was granted the ability to run on the water as he did on the land.” (570:148)
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. Rev. 13:1
(from Taurus – Orion: the Stargate)
The image of this beast rising up out of the sea is obviously similar to the giant beast that emerged from the sea to found the ancient Sumerian civilization.
