In the book of Enoch it says that the fallen angels "Watchers" came to earth and taught humans evil, astrology, how to fight, cosmetics, drink blood and so on.

  • I can't vote to Migrate to another site. I think it should be on another site, but the only site I'm able to recommend is Meta MY, which is also not correct. It could go to another biblical site or a Christian site, maybe.

  • what is enoch? Everything is created by Hashem. Anything created by a creation is not an actual creation but a reforming of a creation. For example if I make a table I didn't create the table but I used a material Hashem created to form the table. Not sure how evil would fit that description. Also in your question you seem to be claiming that whatever a "fallen angel" is learned evil from people.

  • @Eagel here is a direct quote from your question, "came to earth and learned humans evil". If this isn't your intention than you need to reword your question. Also define what you are talking about specifically. What is Enoch and what are "fallen angels"?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it does not appear to be about Judaism. Also, unclear what you're asking.

The Book of Enoch is not one which is considered part of the biblical canon for Jews.

No -- evil is a part of the overall creation of the world as executed by God.

Check out Isaiah 45:7

Who forms light and creates darkness, Who makes peace and creates evil; I am the Lord, Who makes all these. זיוֹצֵר אוֹר וּבוֹרֵא חֹשֶׁךְ עֹשֶׂה שָׁלוֹם וּבוֹרֵא רָע אֲנִי יְהֹוָה עֹשֶׂה כָל אֵלֶּה:
