Well we really cannot blame those bronze Age guys! The average height most of them were 5’2” and below. Seeing a man almost 7 feet would be strange

1 Samuel 17:4
And a champion went out from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, from Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.
1 Cubits to Feet = 1.5
6 Cubits = 6x1.5 = 9feet

1 Samuel 17:4 (KJV) And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.
Please let us always try to verify things so we don't send the wrong message in all we do.
6 cubits is 9ft and a span is 9 inches, he was a giant at 9ft 9inches.

The allegory is to give you a lesson that there is no opposition you cannot defeat when God is behind you

SO IN ESSENCE WE NEED HOLY SPIRIT (USUALLY BLIND FAITH) TO UNDERSTAND VERY SIMPLE THINGS? LIKE A SNAKE TALKING? JONAH LIVING IN A WHALE? NOAH'S ARK?
DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW IMPOSSIBLE THESE THINGS ARE?

You mean you didn't use books in school that were in feet, inches, ounce, Psi and others.
All these are just units of measure, same as cubits, span, score and the likes.

Okay. You can still look them up, at least for the fun of learning how they relate, they are even apps to help convert this things. For instance when you read book from American authors you get lots of headache because of this units(imperial) unlike those from pure English and Indian authors that use (metric).
