Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


We’re back delving into ancient lore and trying to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the possible existence of giants from long ago.

This episode is about a big ol’ finger.  It’s more fun if you go in a bit blind. But if you need some convincing, check out more episode details below. 

If you’ve listened to this podcast for long, you may know that I have a bit of a soft spot for giants. I’ve done a couple of episodes on the myth of the Nephilim giants — including a very special episode with guest expert Ken Ammi that’s a must-listen-to episode. You can check out that one right here.

For those new here, The Nephilim are mysterious beings or people referenced in the Hebrew Bible who are described as being very large and strong. The word Nephilim is a Hebrew word that translates to “giants” and is also sometimes taken to mean “the fallen ones” due to debate over the word’s etymology. However, belief in the Nephilim as giants originated from the Hebrews’ contemplation of megalithic structures and the cyclopean masonry-based walls of Canannite cities, with some being 18 feet thick. Because ancient tribal people were relatively short, the need for these massive structures may suggest the existence of a much larger race of beings present at the time.

All this is to say that I’m back talking about one of my favorite topics.

After doing some research on, I discovered there may be actual proof of these giants… in the form of a very large finger.

Sit back and relax for a short storytime that may shed new light on an ancient myth.
