comment Meaning of Daniel 2:43
Thanks! I'm not proficient enough in Hebrew to evaluate this. This issue you mention seems to be a crucial one though. Many of the English translations mentioned here (bible.cc/daniel/2-43.htm) use grammar that would make the reader think of "they" and "seed of men" as separate (not just KJV). But I also do not know enough about the history of the English translations to comment on that.

comment How did Elijah ascend to heaven?
@swasheck: Thanks. However, I don't think the question necessitates that...? for example, a deity could create an n-dimensional space, and embed both our familiar 3-dimensional space and heaven in it. The deity need not be bound by any physical laws of the n-dimensional space. Maybe it doesn't really work like that, but it's just an example...

comment Meaning of Daniel 2:43
if you simply Google "nephilim daniel 2 43", you will find a number of discussions on this topic, hence indicating that this idea has already propagated for awhile. i am a christian who seeks to understand the Bible better, and the only thing accomplished by downvoting a genuine question is to tell me that i should not ask questions.

comment Meaning of Daniel 2:43
perhaps someone can explain why the question was downvoted. it is a genuine question, the view of Genesis 6:1-4 mentioned is by no means isolated but was the common view in antiquity, and the question here involves an interpretation of Daniel 2:43 that i did not come up with myself. it seems a perfectly reasonable question. in complete seriousness, please tell me why it was downvoted. Thanks.
