I don't think and also after that implies they still exist - only that they continued to exist after the period being refered to.


If taken literally, it can be read as saying that nephilim genetic material was mixed with human, hence may still be.


I think MMarcoe's hypothesis makes most sense - that they were a human tribe of sturdy foreigners who faded into legend.

 The genetic material would have had to have been on the ark within the genes of 1 or more of the eight passingers.

Nu 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants (nephilim): and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
