I believe in an entirely different Elohim, I dont think they are human or from another planet.
I also have to disagree with the translation of Elohim, it derives from El and as far as I know has nothing to do with the sky.
From my understanding of certain biblical passages like Psalm 82 and passages in Genesis, Elohim, Bnai Elyon or Bnai Elohim may be punished to become
incarnate and mortal or temutun. G-d directly threatens them in Psalm 82 and tells them they will fall like the Sarim(Angelic Princes) and die like
Adam if they don't judge the earth properly.
There are plenty of passages in the Bible about the Sabaoth(Host of Heaven) who I'm pretty sure is the same as the Bnai Elohim and Bnai Elyon. Its
pretty much explained in many of the prophecies in the Tanakh that the Sabaoth will be destroyed by G-d in the Last Days and some kind of war will
take place in the heavens.
What ever this mortal form they are punished with, its not exactly human. It may look human, but it would best be described as a different species. I
base this on the description of the hybrids produced between them and humans. The description in the Book of Enoch and in the Bible of these Nephilim
are one that actually fit a known scientific phenomena known as Hybrid Vigor or Heterosis: en.wikipedia.org...
The Nephilim are described as being larger, stronger, and infertile in the Book of Enoch. A real world modern example of this would be the hybrid
offspring of Lions and Tigers, which can average twice the size and weight of their parents. They are also infertile.
Think about this, a rather large Lion is around 500 lbs. A rather large Tiger would be in the 600 pound range. The average Liger is over 1000 lbs,
with some specimens weighing over 2000 lbs. They are literally giants compared to their parent species. They are larger, stronger, and infertile.
I won't get into the details but I think there are chromosome differences between that mortal form and what humans have.
I also disagree with the Raelian view on Jesus. He brought up Psalm 82 in his defense before the Sanhedrin. I wont go into the implications of that
here, but if there is any truth to it....well it might be mindblowing.
