Well, maybe not. The giants of old may not be directly responsible for superhighways and toll booths, there is some evidence to suggest that they did motivate our distant ancestors to give up pastoral or agricultural lifestyles for cities.

Dr. Judd Burton, director of the Institute of Biblical Anthropology and author of Interview With the Giant: Ethnohistorical Notes on the Nephilim, joins us to discuss giants and the roots of human civilization.
