Religion definition : philosophy of religion

Religion definition is hard to explain with words. Sometime to better explain this phenomena, people usually talk about philosophy of religion. Indeed, and during our existence, people always believed in something. Whether it were natural forces influencing the world of individuals or the belief in various gods, their worship, bringing sacrifices or waiting for their return. Anyhow, in the world we can find a variety of beliefs respectively religions that preach their teaching and expect adherence to certain principles. In today´s modern world, many religions may not seem like something important or as something that is within each of us deeply entrenched, but as stated Sean O´Callaghan "existence of religion across the entire human society and culture led many thinkers to believe that the human psyche operates a common factor," while on the one hand are human beings somehow "predisposed to believe" on the other, their belief derives from a "variety of geographic, political, climatic and philosophical and psychological conditions."

Man is thus predetermined to the belief in certain factors, but, people within the religion store informations from their ancestors, which are passed down from generation to generation as something sacred. But we do not need automatically assume that all these informations are something incredible, maybe the imagination of the author, articulation and expression of different stories that happened. Often in religious texts, we can find an old truth. Knowledge, which have long remained hidden. As an example, we can take The Book of Enoch, where we can find:

„And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.' (...) And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants. And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells.“

The Book of Enoch therefore gives us information about the terrible giants who once lived on Earth. This information may seem fantastic, but around the world are discovering the information and findings, which are showing us that these giants once really lived. Even in Malta may be find temples called Ggantija, which means "belonging to the giants," who had them build. Except of these temples, we get into the hand more tangible evidence. Giant bones, skulls, mummies and even entire huge weapons were find throughout the world. From all of them we can mention finding from 1911. In a cave in Lovelock, Nevada, were find several giant skeletons and ancient artifacts. In 1950 were found in the Euphrates Valley giants tombs with the remains of the height of 4,2 to 4,8 metres. Another important finding is the report of Gregory Spoerri, who in 2012 brought to the world pictures of giant finger which were made before more than 20 years.

Finger owned Arab family, originating from grave robbers, refusing to sell it. Apparently, man with this finger, should measure at least five meters. About giants in Egypt were also talking Roman historian Flavius Josephus, who reported that in the history of Jewish War were giants. „Much larger and shaped differently than normal people. Terrible to behold. Who has not seen it with my own eyes, can not believe that they have been so immense.“ 
Giants are reported also in other important documents of different religions or even cultures. However, despite archaeological findings, which are often keeping hidden, experts and lay people still refuse to believe in the authenticity of the informations contained in the sacred texts.
