Question A professor told us that the sons of God going
into the daughters of humans to produce "warriors of renown" was a Greek
myth (Genesis 6:1-4)?
by Robert Brow (www.brow.on.ca)
I don't like using the term myth because the language game varies with
every scholar who uses it. I assume that, when Genesis Man was created
in the image of God and appeared comparatively recently among other the
there must have been some sexual contact (say with the Neanderthals,
who were apparently not part of the line from which humans were made).
Why call that a myth? That we were created in the image
of God is no myth, but an essential fact of our difference from all the
hominids that preceded us.
