    "The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown."


    Genesis 6:4

    Looks like a pizza oven for burning extra-large Jews.

    i see one problem with that (there are probably more but i'm tired). bodies can only grow as large as their circulatory system can support. that's why you never see 10' long grasshoppers: insects' circulatory systems cannot support a body larger than about 6 inches. i don't remember the exact maximum size for humans, but i'm pretty sure it's not more than 10' before the human heart (even if proportionally larger) is just not strong enough to push blood from the feet to the brain.
