One is perfectly entitled to voice one's opinion as to what any given verse SHOULD purportedly have said. However, what the verse DID say, in black and white, was that the offspring of angels and human women were "mighty men", "men of old which were of renown". "Mighty men" are not automatically giants; neither are "men of renown" (or even "men of notoriety"). There are many "notorious" pipsqueaks throughout history, haha! (such as Attila the Hun, Gunga Din, Kublai Khan, etc.)
I certainly won't argue against the existence of antediluvian giants; there seems to be altogether too much circumstantial evidence which militates FOR their existence. I strongly disagree, however, that the children born to humans and angels were giants. Two different groups of beings existed contemporaneously on this planet during that time period.
Just my opinion, of course.
