87 – The Book of The Watchers (The Book of Enoch: 1-36)
It’s time for some of that old, old time religion as we tell a classic tale of blood, pride, mayhem and divine wrath. The Book of Enoch is one of the most consistently speculated upon books in the entire Judeo-Christian tradition despite not officially being part of the vast, vast majority of Jewish and Christion canons. Just what are they trying to hide? Probably just that God is kind of dick and makes mistakes. But that hasn’t stopped people from latching onto the story of Enoch, the Watchers, and the Nephilim as evidence of ancient aliens and the true history of aliens and human hybrids. It’s a weird one for sure. In this episode we’re telling the story of the first section of the The Book of Enoch, The Book of The Watchers, which deals with the fallen angels giving technological secrets to humanity and being punished brutally by an angry god as well as Enoch’s journey to God’s house and magical mystery tour through a weird cosmos.
Note: We are neither historians nor biblical scholars. We are morons. And we got a lot wrong. Most prominently referring to The Book of The Watchers as “The First Book of Enoch”. While it is the first book in The Book of Enoch, 1 Enoch refers to the whole thing while 2 Enoch and 3 Enoch are entirely different books. Also, we had to cut any overt references to it but Sequoyah was dealing with a very stupid and very funny potential personal crisis and his head wasn’t exactly in the game.
