[According to] Genesis 6:1-6, there the 'children of God' have intercourse with women, producing a race of Nephilim , 'mighty men that were old, men of renown'. Enoch 6-11 describes how these heavenly beings (all named) teach the women about spells, root-cutting and plants, astrology, weapons of war, and cosmetics. The women give birth to giants, who turn to cannibalism and drinking blood.
