Ed you stated:"Something else that stuck out while reading...the "marrying and giving in marriage." For some reason that has always struck me as a strange thing to say. However, as I read it this time I kept thinking about the gay marriage issue and how strong it is right now which seems to make the "marrying and giving in marriage" I don't know...it just seems to suddenly stand out with purpose rather than just being there."This scripture is far more than Gay marriage. This goes back to Genisis 6.
King James Version (KJV)
6 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Those "daughters" willingly gave themselves to the "Sons of God"/Fallen Angels/Aliens. To birth a god from these fallen ones was a badge of honor.

As it was in the days of Noah? Yes, women will willingly wed the "aliens" And give birth to demi gods.
