Book Review: On the Trail of the Nephilim 2 by L.A. Marzulli

http://www.amazon.com/review/R14DCAPCVRBZLJ/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00D5DZIWY

^^ A number of my remarks from my review of the first book On the Trail of the Nephilim, Volume 1 (On the Trail of the Nephilim, Giant Skeletons & Ancient Megalithic Structures) continue to apply here so I will post that link for the sake of brevity and avoiding repetition.

Here are the key phrases to remember: Preliminary data. Work in progress. Hypothesis. Theory. These are the correct descriptions to apply to what you will see in this book just like its predecessor.Marzulli and his team have never attempted to present any of this as anything else but those above qualifiers contrary to some well intended and not so well intended parties out there.As before this book not only tells but shows thanks to numerous gorgeous full color photos in a high end, high stock 8×11 coffee table style book. Marzulli is able to take a lot of what can be tedious data at times and attempt to boil it down for the laymen like myself to understand. The pictures are critical and go a long ways towards helping this along. It’s a gorgeous 260+ page book chock full of cutting edge information and research that you won’t want to put down once you start digging in. I can guarantee you if you have this out on the coffee table you will have an instant can’t fail conversation starter!I want to highlight just a few of the points of interest that are thoroughly documented in this book for your consideration. Keep in mind these are just the tip of the iceberg of what else you will find in this book that I simply cannot do justice here.1.) Glidden Catalina archive.

Four people blind tested and unawares of one another used different sophisticated techniques on the picture of Glidden standing over a large skeleton and determined that the picture was not a fake in any way and all placed the skeleton at or near the 9 foot tall range.

A six fingered skeleton was also discovered on Catalina and further work need to be done to determine if the six fingers are simply a defect or if there is something more to it since six fingers, six toes, and two sets of teeth are typical Nephilim physical traits. Preliminary measurements, and that’s all they are, suggest a potentially larger than normal human being in these pictures with a bowl laying next to it that is also larger then would be deemed normal.

This book goes into fairly meticulous detail about all of this and thankfully is accompanied by numerous full color pictures to make it easy to follow.

Glidden was a grave digger and everyone knows that he is not someone you would want to hang your hat on sight unseen however if you prefer “despite himself” he cataloged, and documented, and photographed numerous things during the course of his treks that he either had no interest in and/or simply didn’t know what he had come across.

The Glidden collection is largely lost to museums and other outlets and inaccessible to the general public which is a shame. Why is that? Because it threatens the Darwinian viewpoint? Marzulli and his team think so and frankly so do I.

2.) RAMAN Spectroscopy/PRELIMINARY DNA:

Normal human hair control sample vs dyed human hair vs “white hair” taken from an abduction scene that the victim said they were forced to have sex with a hybrid being, and a red hair from a mummy in Peru. You can and should have numerous difficult questions coming up for the scenario described but the point is anomalous physical evidence was left behind.

The RS showed the mummy hair and the “white hair” essentially tracking with each other and matching which is highly suggestive and disturbing in terms of connecting antiquity to modernity. The hypothesis being tested with all of this is that an external party was and still is attempting to mess with the human genome and it ties in to both the Nephilim and the current UFO abduction phenomenon. Marzulli has explored that connection in more detail in numerous other words of his including Watchers 6-8 DVDs and the book Further Evidence. All of this is Biblically based.

3.) Baby fetus skull from Peru museum matches Pervuian Antiques 1842 sketch and cataloging.

The sketch is from Peruvian Antiquities 1842 of a fetus with an elongated skull and teeth. In 1842 no one cared about Nephilim, aliens, or anything else. It was just another day at the office. Their detailed cataloging is in the book and it’s jaw dropping in its potential ramifications. It’s enough detail that I don’t have the space to do it justice. The point here is that this information was cataloged by people who had no dog in the hunt as it were in terms of Nephilim or anything else like that. I really do wonder what became of the skeleton that they sketched and did this thorough write up about. It, too, disappeared never to be seen by the public.

These 1842 authors carefully and meticulously cataloged the skeleton of a fetus from 1842 that had numerous physical anomalies and not the least of which were teeth and an elongated skull that could not have been cradle boarded for obvious reasons: You can’t cradle board something in a womb.

The baby skeleton in Senior Juan’s museum in Paracas is a match in appearance in modernity for what was described in the 1842 sketch.

Glidden had a picture of a mother and baby skeleton with elongated skulls in a grave as well. How do fetuses and young babies get cradle boarded? Answer: They don’t so that opens the door to more questions and potential ramifications.

There is a “uniformity” to the anomalies. Why do we keep seeing this elongated head motif? Where did it come from? Why is it found all over the planet?

4.) Native American Tradition

This could potentially be a game changer for more reasons than one. For the Native Americans giants in the history and their oral traditions are a matter of fact history. Native Americans’ oral tradition is extremely important to them and not something taken lightly. What becomes more telling is when some of their accounts are in references to red headed giants from way back when that would approximate the time period Joshua and Caleb hit the Levant on God’s orders and if the theory is correct some of the giants were able to flee and scatter. Red headed giants also show up in Paracas in their older accounts. Little is truly known about the Paracas Andean culture that was around approximately 800 B.C. thereabouts and there are enough archaeological remnants of theirs left behind that lend themselves to intriguing questions and a possible connection to all of the rest of this.Certain types of themes and concepts keep showing up all over the world and it begs for further scrutiny. Furthermore and more importantly some Native American tribes have potential knowledge and whereabouts of giant remains and Marzulli and his team are trying to carefully work with them to be allowed to have access to these sites. For myself personally this is potentially some of the most exciting part of this research on the bubble as of the date I write this. The chatter is that there is at least one site where a giant is known to be buried under the purview of a certain tribe that Marzulli and his team may get access to if all goes well. Stay tuned.FURTHER THOUGHTS:
The source of potential frustration on all sides of this: Research costs time and money. Proper science and academia process demands a certain protocol and a certain order of operations. Things like DNA testing cost a king’s ransom.I think any fair hearing of their material will show that they have taken great pains to indicate that what they have so far is simply a process in the scientific method where they are gathering evidence to test a hypothesis. The hypothesis is that when Joshua and Caleb finally hit the Promised Land to clear it out in the book of Joshua that some of the Nephilim Giants were able to escape and scatter all over the planet.With two of these books out in the open and hours of detailed interviews and videos I think it’s high time and fair to say that the burden of proof is on the skeptics and wannabe debunkers to offer a counterpoint of their own physical evidence and on site research. Thus far they have not produced anything remotely comparable. I respect healthy skepticism since I tend to engage in it quite often myself but there is also a matter of being fair, intellectually honest, and if you are that certain that your view is correct then with all due respect there is a point where you need to put your money where your mouth is and show it, not just tell it. That is the scientific method. That is how we all learned something. Take a hypothesis and bang it up from all sides and see what comes out on the other side.I highly recommend Marzulli’s research if this sort of subject matter is of even a remote interest to you. I have an interest in it in a larger tapestry of Bible and Bible prophecy study and I have a very short list of people I trust with this sort of subject matter and he is on that list at the top along with Russ Dizdar at Shatter the Darkness and Gary Stearman at Prophecy Watchers.

If you want to get a bigger picture of where all of this fits in then I highly recommend the following:

^^ I attended this conference personally. This is the gold standard on the entire subject and Gary Stearman’s presentations in particular are THE biblical bellwether for all time in my humble opinion.

Book Review: Redeemed Unredeemable by Tom Horn and Donna Howell

This book will challenge your perspective and sensitivities. It most certainly did mine. This book puts to the test in very sharp relief Scriptures about what is and isn’t “the unpardonable sin” and how “God’s ways are higher than ours.”As other reviewers have rightly stated: This is a generous book from a generous author or really authors because it was both Tom Horn and Donna Howell collaborating. Be on the lookout for a special testimony at the end of the book from Donna.

Let’s face it: Most of us have and would look at any of these people on the news and throw the switch without a second thought and that’s perfectly understandable. The authors themselves are no exceptions to that and make note of it. Thankfully for all of our sakes that is not how God operates. This book takes all of that and truly puts it to the test with situations that any of us would deem hopeless, impossible, and utterly beyond salvage.

What do all of these criminals highlighted in this book have in common besides their nefarious actions? They all apparently made professions of Christ and at least some of them had complete changes in life and personality changes after being jailed that never went away like you would expect with a faker. Pardon the cliche but the book really does take a “we report, you decide” stance on the accounts and leaves it at that.

This is not a forensic book nor is it a criminology book so we are mercifully spared the gory details of the crimes although what the crimes were are discussed with care and tact.

This book very carefully lays out as much unbiased fact as possible of the people and leaves it up to the reader to try and carefully gauge what they are looking at in regards to each person. The admonition of “only God can judge people’s hearts” is repeated often and for good measure because there are a few of these where I really wasn’t terribly sure. There are some other testimonies in here that bowled me over and left me with no doubts that the person was saved.

Make no mistake about it: There are consequences for sins and all of these people faced those consequences and many of them admitted that they deserved to face those consequences even if it meant death.

I found myself in a position where you are arguing with yourself and making occasional exclamations out loud to yourself while reading because there are definitely some situations described where I personally don’t know how the profession and total life changing conversion could be anything but genuine. Be prepared to be surprised. Be prepared to be knocked out of a comfort zone like I was. Be prepared to have a new awareness and sensitivity on a number of levels after reading this book.

There is one profile in here where I found myself at the end of it with an amazing amount of sympathy for the individual and an even dimmer view for a now former POTUS but I digress. I think this particular account might be the most moving and compelling out of all of them but each account is unique and powerful in its own way.

We have no idea what most people live with day by day and what damage can be done. That isn’t an excuse. This book takes GREAT pains to not play the “well, they had a messed up childhood” excuse card. The authors balance a careful lack of excuses and pity for actions but take a careful and sympathetic look at a number of backgrounds that clearly show abuse and neglect and it’s a simple of matter of fact that the human psyche on its own can only take so much without fallout and collateral damage.

I think it takes a lot of courage to put out a book like this because it’s not an easy stance to take and it’s not a popular one to take. It’s much more comfortable to go with the idea of “serial killer, doomed, forget about it” but God is bigger than that and I think you will find some absolutely incredible and jaw dropping changes that only God Himself could do out of the pits of some of the most deranged and hopeless pits one could ever find themselves in. Only God could fix it. Only God could heal it. Be prepared to find yourself praising God in amazement at the end of this book while being shell-shocked at the same time. I’ll admit for at least two of these I was like “Come on, no way. THIS guy?” Yes, if we take God at His Word and only He knows people’s hearts…if it’s genuine…then yes, “that guy.” That is the takeaway from this book and it truly is a mind blowing one to contemplate.

I am left wondering myself: How many people have I run across in my life that have issues at home and backgrounds that I simply wasn’t aware of. The kid that I knew in school that was picked on by the jocks just because he was different and he ended up coming to school in his last year wearing a black glove on his right hand as a “symbol” and telling my sister that it was only because he was a Christian that he wasn’t going to do anything violent but he was sorely tempted. That’s a warning, folks. That’s a warning that all of us should have taken more seriously back then. This is was pre Columbine and praise the Lord nothing ever happened but it most certainly could have. How many more of these are out there?

If the authors ever want to revisit this subject for another book it would be a challenge but there are accounts of certain Nazis and other historically infamous people like that who allegedly repented and accepted Christ as well and those accounts at least as mind blowing and comfort zone challenging as what’s in this book. It truly is amazing and faith building to see the Lord save even the lowest of deviants and witness it happen and have it documented which I think absolutely happened with some of these people.

I can’t recommend this book highly enough. I think it’s amazing account of testimonials and potentially changed lives that gives fully glory to the Lord through a saving relationship in Jesus Christ. Only He could do something like this.
