The Lies and Motivations Behind the Rephaim Genocide
What becomes immediately evident in the written historical record, however, is the lengths to which the ancient Canaanites were willing to go to vilify the Watchers and in particular their offspring.
Despite the fact that every account reports that the Watchers married their wives and with them had children, yet thereafter these same children are specifically called "bastards" and "children of fornication" by the ancient Canaanites immediately prior to their attempts to "murder" them all:
Additionally some time was permitted to pass during which the "Watchers" were freely given and granted their daughters in marriage to these "heavenly" Watcher males and then the Canaanites further watched and at least tacitly approved as loving families grew and developed therefrom.
And yet, at some point, these same married couples and their "beloved" families were demonized by the religious zealotry and intolerance of the male-dominated Canaanite theocracy to the extent that the most obvious lies were written and enshrined in "holy" scripture by men too blinded by hate and jealousy to realize the transparency of their glaring contradictions.
To them nothing mattered but the wholesale slaughter of these 200 "Watchers" for whom these jealous and hateful Canaanites had suddently determined, long after the fact, not to have had any right to marry and sire children. What could have caused such an apparent "about-face" in attitude?
The Canaanites obviously had no problem with the Watchers' descending from "heaven" and teaching them the many fundamentally important arts and sciences that they did. The Canaanites later openly acknowledged the Watchers, revering and honoring them as "Men of Valour... and Renown". They also freely gave their daughters in marriage to them and the Watchers felt accepted enough to continue living with the Canaanites both before and after their marriages, and further sired and raised families in their midst as loving parents.
However, once the children of these honored and highly respected "Watchers" came of age... something changed.
According to other wholly Canaanite accounts, the children themselves are found depicted as true monsters of gigantic size and "insatiable appetite" who feed on whole cattle, livestock, etc., devouring all in their path, including cannabilistically devouring humankind as well, and thus finally forcing the Canaanites to act against them in defense of their very lives.
Yet no hint of such outlandishly ludicrous tales are found in Genesis, The Talmud, nor even the authoritative Books of Enoch (which contain arguably the most religiously historical material devoted the subject of the Watchers). Instead, the Books of Enoch (as quoted above) depict the ordered destruction of the Watchers' offspring as motivated solely by cruelty (Canaanite cruelty, not the falsely claimed Watcher cruelty of supposedly devouring everything and everyone around them):
Thus these vilifications can be nothing more than after-the-fact manipulations of the truth to attempt a justification for the near wholesale slaughter of the "Watcher" race and their half-"Watcher"/half-human progeny.
The fact is, as stated in Enoch 12, that it was solely due to the delight the Watchers and their wives had in their "beloved ones" that they were to be cruelly punished in being forced to see the slaughter and then to lament over "the destruction of their children." Thus the Canaanites sought not to punish the Watcher children for being murderous giants (which they so obviously were not), but instead to mercilessly punish the parents for daring to marry and raise loving families.
Thus again... more lies and vilifications have been exposed. But... why?!
As stated above, only after the "Watcher" children had come of age did the Canaanites inexplicably "get religion" and suddenly decide that the Watchers were evil and they and their children worthy of destruction.
When a careful look is taken at the history as currently exists openly and then again at the later lies against both the Watchers and, particularly, the children, the same common descriptive threads exist: "insatiable desire" and "sex". Thus, the same common thread for the vlifications and lies made against them by the male-dominated hierarchies who have always fought to destroy them: fear of losing their females to such "insatiable" males, and sexual jealousy for not possessing this same capacity, themselves.
Understandably, the Watcher children carried within them the unique genes of their Watcher fathers. Thus this new batch of healthy eligible "Watcher"-derived males among them possessed the same unlimited sensual and emotional potentials and capacities as did their fathers, which was also a primary factor in them being considered such great "men of valour" and "renown." And together with the rising generation of equally eligible Canaanites males, they all vyed for the affections, love, and "hand" of the rising generation of healthy, eligible females of both communities.
And this is when the real trouble began...
Now all of a sudden the daughters of the Canaanites had a much more appealing variety of males to choose from. They could choose to romantically pursue or spurn either:
Thus, were you one of such females... which would you prefer? So also did many of the Canaanite young ladies, though this important piece of historical fact never made it into the "sacred" texts written by its snubbed men.
And while a generation earlier the young Canaanite women who married the 200 original "Watchers" might have been somewhat ostracized for doing so outside their race, the children produced from these marriages were undeniably half Canaanite, and therefore marriages between the Watcher children and the Canaanites would have been at least twice as socially and religiously acceptable.
Seeing this, the Canaanite hierarchy (all male, of course) quickly realized the far-reaching implications and foresaw their own bloodline quickly thinning and ultimately becoming dominated by the blood of this "alien" race as more and more of their women fled from the males of their own race and mated with the male descendants of the Watchers, The Rephaim.
In preferring Watcher-descended Rephaim males, women were indeed becoming "corrupted"... for good, not evil... by the teachings begun with Azazel in teaching "sexual pleasure" to women in ways Human males simply were not capable of understanding.
In the eyes of these insecure, jealous Canaanite men, the fact that their women had voluntarily chosen to marry these "Watchers" instead of themselves, was the true motivation for declaring the "Watchers" guilty of "corrupting" their women and, thus, justified in their eyes the genocide that followed.
The fact that their women obviously enjoyed very fulfilling, loving relationships with these Heaven-sent husbands and the children such loving marriages produced meant absolutely nothing to the murderous Canaanites bent upon the wholesale slaughter of men, women, and children, regardless of the truth. And thus, in twisting the truth into the pernicious lies required so as to justify their "religious" intolerance and the slaughters perpetrated upon these loving families, the true motivation for the genocide that followed and the lies told against the Rephaim in justification of that genocide are clearly revealed: male sexual jealousy disguised as religious piety.
