 Myth: The angels who sinned before the flood, practiced gene-splicing

Is there gene-splicing in The Book of Enoch?

Ancient churchmen, Augistine of Hippo, and Jerome, found the stories of fornicating angels in the Book of Enoch repulisive, so the effort to remove the Book of Enoch and the Book of Jubilees was underway. It is no different today. People still find the idea of angels acting in a carnal way repulisive. This repulsion leads people to explain the underlying premise of the Book of Enoch in another way. One might even refer to this practice of 'air-brushing' the Book of Enoch so as to remove the explicit sex!

From time-to-time I have seen people claim that when Enoch writes the Watchers taught their wives about “the cutting of roots” that this is a reference to gene-splicing. This view undercuts the assertion in Enoch’s book that the sin of the angels was sexual in nature and the monstrous offspring of the Watchers were the product of sex with human women.

Angels + Humans = Nephilim

Also, the immediate context to the phrase “the cutting of roots” seems to indicate the magical, occult use of the earth’s products, something certain occultists do even now.

“They taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants”. (Enoch 7:1)

If you think about it, if the angels had advanced scientific knowledge about gene-splicing (or any other non-sexual method for making children, for that matter) why would they even need the parrticipation of the women at all? Why not gather your genetic samples and get on with it without any human co-operation at all?

The bottom line is this, there simply is no authoritative, ancient Scripture for the Watchers needing to resort to gene-splicing to accomplish their evil plans. {Top}
