There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown
so there where giants ( lol i love doing this)

It was 12 ft 2 in (3.71 m) tall, weighed 2 tonnes, and had 6 toes on its right foot. After being exhibited in Dublin, it was brought to England and exhibited in Liverpool and Manchester at sixpence a head, 'attracting scientific men as well as gaping sightseers

lol @ you're update. I know that's frustrating, so I'll give you my Why :P
I grew up in a Christian family, in Christian schools my entire life before college. I started questioning my feelings on Christianity in middle school, and quickly realized that I didn't want to be a part of it. I wasn't happy with certain things I'd read in the Bible, I wasn't happy with messages I received in church/school, from my family, from Christian history. I was increasingly interested in history and politics, leaning strongly to the left, and many of my convictions didn't fit within my understanding of Christianity. It wasn't enough to tell me that it was okay to be what they called a "liberal Christian" either, when the Bible was clear as day on several non-liberal things. It didn't make sense to me to hold onto the title of Christian if I didn't believe in the Bible as anything more than historical document of what people believed at the time. So I stopped calling myself Christian.
Then in early high school, I continued thinking about the subject of religion, and whether or not the issue was more than just that. I started thinking about the subject of gods, and when I couldnt find any concrete evidence or sound logic behind belief in gods, I knew the answer on where I stood. I was an atheist and I'm still an atheist today. I think my parents initially thought I was just trying to rebel, but they realized over the years that my conviction of atheism runs deep into the way I view the world and how I process information. I think that's key to it all really. I think some people have a natural predisposition to fall on either side. I questioned everything as a child, in a very logical and unyielding manner. I always say that such a mind really isn't made for religion/theism most of the time. Faith in god requires some backing down from doubt. That's why they encouraged us to always pray about unholy thoughts, give it to god, pray the doubt away. If you don't do that, and purposely try to make logical sense of religion, of god, you might be on fast track to atheism. That was my experience anyway.
There's also some other psychological elements related to faith as well. They've done studies on brain activity between believers and atheists, and we do respond to some things differently. It's quite interesting to me to view faith in terms of biology, psychology, and history. One could argue that there's less choice in it than we really think.0
