#beginquote# I understand what you're saying, but you are starting with the assumption that the Enoch text is authoritative as Scripture. MOST Jews and Christians would not agree with this, so your prior statement: "if you're religious" is somewhat misleading. Personally, I think that the Enoch text is useful for understanding the views and beliefs of second temple Judaism. Some its contents may even be authoritative, since it is qouted by Jude in the N.T. However, I think the verdict of both Judaism and the Church communities - that Enoch is *not* canonical - must be taken into account when reading the text. As a Christian, I probably would not base a doctrine (ie, music was introduced by Azazel and his crew) solely on something that occurs in Enoch. #endquote#
