If you read carefully and think, then you can understand the the OT writers started with using much older fiction written by the Egyptians, and also someone was building a religion to frighten the people who surely must have been ignorant.We also know the the story about the Hebrews running away from Egypt and crossing a river, etc is not true, ,and that the god killed many children to force the Pharaoh to let the Hebrews go is also not true. People you are talking about a religion, and there is no evidence for mos things in the bible.

Who were “the sons of the true God” mentioned at Genesis 6:2, 4 as living before the Flood?
The first of those verses reads: “The sons of the true God began to notice the daughters of men, that they were good-looking; and they went taking wives for themselves, namely, all whom they chose.”—Gen. 6:2.
Who then are “the sons of the true God” mentioned in the account at Genesis 6:2, 4? It is logical to conclude that the account is referring to spirit sons of God who came to earth.
Some find it hard to accept that angels might be interested in having sexual relations. Jesus’ words recorded at Matthew 22:30 show that marriage and sex relations do not exist in heaven. Yet, angels have on occasion materialized human bodies, even eating and drinking with men. Gen. 18:1-8; 19:1-3 Hence, it is reasonable to conclude that in such a materialized form, they could have sexual relations with women.
Such a conclusion makes sense when we recognize that “the sons of the true God” mentioned at Genesis 6:2, 4 were angels who materialized bodies and committed immorality with women.
In what way were spirit creatures disobedient in Noah’s day? Before the Deluge, these wicked spirits materialized in human form something that God had not purposed for them. Gen. 6:2, 4 Furthermore, those angels who had sex with women were practicing a perversion. God did not create spirit creatures to engage in sexual relations with women. Gen. 5:2 These wicked, disobedient angels will be destroyed in God’s due time. For now, as Jude notes, they are in a condition of “dense darkness” a spiritual prison, so to speak.
Please read this article there you will have scriptural references and more knowledge on what Genesis 6:4 means. Also it will explain it to you and show pictures of the angels who left the heavens to come to earth to engage in sexual relations with good-looking women on the earth. Who were “the sons of the true God” mentioned at Genesis 6:2, 4 as living before the Flood?

All humans are God's children, since He is our Father.

There were over 5 millions humans on earth when God sent Adam and Eve (Nephilim Angels) to preach to, not mate with mankind(forbidden fruit). If you mate with them, you die(lose supernatural power). It is GOSPEL that makes man in God's own image.
Adam was made fully aware of the consequence of mating with humans: Eve was NOT.
When Eve mated with a Nodite tribesman from east of Eden, Cain was conceived. Cain was not Adam's son. Then Adam mated with a Nodite woman.It was Abel's mocking Cain as a stepchild that provoked Cain to retaliate, killing Abel.The Babylonians forced the EXILED Jews to rewrite their history to reflect that all humans (not just the Jews) come from Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve's children who came to earth with them were also Nephilims. Nephilim and Giant were synonymous. Once a Nephilim mate with humans (forbidden fruit), they (DIE), lose supernatural power as Adam and Eve did. When a Nephilim dies, he lives about 900 more years as a Nephil. Nephilims and Nephils are called SONS OF GOD. Humans were called sons of man. Humans at the time of Adam lived about 40 years and stood about 4ft.. Adam and Eve stood 9ft. Eve mating with the 4ft. Nodite produced Cain who lived about 500 years and stood about 7ft.. Noah is thought to be the last of the Nephils, but reproducing with a human reduced life-expectancy of his sons to about 500 years. Noah's sons mateing with non-Nephil woman reduced child's life expectancy to 250 years and height about 5ft., etc...Only the descendants of Adam and Eve lived the lengthy lifespans and were giants.

Genesis 6:4 describes the fact that there were indeed giants on the Earth at one time. The angels of God are variously referred to as the sons of God, because they too were His Creation. Jesus, the single Son that you mention is referred to in John's Gospel as God's only begotten (human-born) Son. And God does have only one "begotten" Son.

It simply means the Godly line, intermarrying with the ungodly.
Giants here means men of renown, as the verse itself indicates, and more particularly fellers of men, that is dictators, bandit leaders, heads of gangs or tribes. It especially suggests tendencies to violence. Verse 11 confirms this.
We have such emerging more and more today, extremists, terrorists, dictators with absolute and autocratic power.
Incidently this may also presage the end of this world and Judgement, as it did in Noah's time ... But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
The nonsense that angels combined with men is both absurd and blasphemous. God, being the Giver of Life, it would necessitate Him to be a partaker of sin, which is rank blasphemy.
Furthermore angels being greater in power and might have no interest in base flesh. Would you be interested in mating with, say, a lizard? See the absurdity?
That nonsense comes from fallen man who is dominated by the flesh and led on by carnal desires.

I have said many times Christians do not know the Bible. if they read it properly they would see it was a diary of a few of the lives (19 enclosed) God has been born on earth and many more besides. The 1st of these lives was in Genesis chapter 5 v 24. and Enoch walked with God. can you walk with someone and them not be there as is preached. and each time God has been born God has married and has had sons and daughters even Jesus the same.
now you write a diary and one birthday more exciting than the rest. you write about it many times. your diary is lost to resurface hundreds of years later. people see that one special day of yours. do you think they would concentrate on that one day ignoring all the rest. well, that is what they do to one of Gods lives. and when you look at the stars above know you are seeing God..

Before the “flood”, Satan’s brilliant plan was for angels to manifest in physical form and mate with humans, creating Nephilim or Nephilites. His agenda seems to have been to destroy humanity through genetics into something more his liking.
The flood, real or symbolic, was the wiping out of the hybrid angel/humans.

In those days, and for some time after, giant humans lived on the earth, for whenever the sons of God had intercourse with the daughters of men, they gave birth to children who became the heroes and famous warriors of ancient times.
The sons of God were the seed of godly Seth, and the daughters of men were the woman seed of Cain the evil one. They formed an unholy union. The biggest reason God sent the flood.
