5.17 – THE SATAN CONSPIRACY (10.28.13)


Qumran, the West Bank. Here, during a series of excavations beginning in 1949, archaeologists unearth hundreds of ancient scrolls. They are believed to have been written by a Hebrew sect known as the Essenes more than 2,000 years ago. Several of the scrolls contain fragments of what has become known as the Book of Enoch, and the account of a rebellion launched by a group of angels called the Watchers.

“One of the most famous parts of the Book of Enoch is a story of the Watchers. This is a story about 200 angels that were charged with watching over mankind in its early stages, and basically, taking care of us, looking out for us.”

Adam Blai (Religious Demonologist)

“The Watchers are a group of angels who are dispatched to watch humans and to help humans. Now, the Watchers are very interesting, because they are angels who interact with humans.”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

“And there’s a brief reference to this in Genesis. But the Book of Enoch essentially expands that story and tells a more full story. This was taken out of the canon of the Bible early in the Church’s life, but it was in for a period of time.”

    – Adam Blai (Religious Demonologist)

“Once the Watchers begin to interact with humans, they become infatuated with this new species, and they become lustful of this new species. And all of a sudden, the original idea, the original commands that they were given seem a lot less interesting to them.”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

“They came to a point where they wanted to take wives and have children, and so they decided to rebel, create bodies, marry and bear children.”

Adam Blai (Religious Demonologist)

According to the Book of Enoch, the leader of this rebellion is a Watcher known as Shemyaza or Satanael. Could this be the same character we know as Satan?

“So, what we’re seeing in the story of Shemyaza and the Watchers is very similar to the story of Lucifer in charge of the angels. In both cases, we’re confronted with a hierarchy of a species which is between us and God, the leader of which disagrees with God and basically wants to live amongst mankind.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

“When you look at different versions of the Book of Enoch, the one thing that combines all of them is that they talk about the Watchers, the Watchers from Heaven. And they are the ones who gave knowledge. And when I look at terms such as “Watchers from Heaven,” then personally, I interpret them as possible extraterrestrials.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Do the ancient accounts of Shemyaza’s revolt and Lucifer’s fall suggest that Satan’s efforts to corrupt mankind in the Garden of Eden were actually an attempt to give man forbidden knowledge? And might these legends be based, not on myth, but on actual historical events, events involving extraterrestrial visitors? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and believe that close examination of the Book of Enoch may point to physical evidence of where Satan’s so-called rebellion against God may have actually occurred.

Mount Hermon, Lebanon. Straddling the border of Syria, this legendary mountain, as described in the Book of Enoch, is the peak where Shemyaza and the Watchers descended to Earth.

“In the Book of Enoch, there’s a reference to Mount Hermon. We see the angels basically descending to Mount Hermon. So, Mount Hermon was both a place of connection with Heaven and kind of a sally port between Earth and Heaven. The Watchers, being angels from Heaven, knew the sciences of Heaven. Samyaza was basically an expert in enchantment and root cutting. You could think of it as, basically, witchcraft. The casting of spells, creating magic and using roots to create potions.”

Adam Blai (Religious Demonologist)

“The Book of Enoch lists, very specifically, the subjects that are taught to humans by the Watchers, by these angels who begin to share their wisdom with them.”

  – Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

The Book of Enoch describes Mount Hermon as the place where Shemyaza taught humans about magic and medicine. Other powerful angels passed on knowledge of metallurgy, weapons, astrology, science and even warfare.

“The Watchers delivered to humanity the forbidden knowledge of God. All the stories in ancient cultures, cross-cultural, had these tales of beings that would deliver the forbidden knowledge of the gods to humans. And they were all condemned for it.”

Scott Roberts (Author, The Rise and Fall of the Nephilim)

“The Watchers, through Shemyaza, give us extraordinary tools, which make our lives much, much better on Earth. So, is Shemyaza really a bad guy, or did he, in fact, liberate humans from ignorance? And if Shemyaza actually is the forerunner of Satan, has Satan actually been misrepresented all of these years?”

– Kathleen McGowan Coppens (Author/Researcher),
(Author, The Expected One), (The Source of Miracles),
(The Book of Love)

Is it possible that Shemyaza and the other Watchers were extraterrestrial beings that gave humanity the foundations for civilization? Then, if so, how did Satan come to be so misunderstood and misinterpreted by history?

“If we equal Shemyaza and Satan, what we’re confronted with here is a larger framework which basically tells us that Shemyaza, Satan were here to civilize us. The Watchers were civilizing deities. They basically helped us to develop our skills of civilization. And so, what we’re confronted with here is basically the conclusion that civilization the way we know it is not something divine, but it’s literally satanic. It was Satan who gave us the tools of civilization.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Was Satan really a civilizing force for early humans, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? And, if so, might further evidence be found by examining other ancient myths and legends?

“In ancient Sumeria, you have these very curious stories of the Anunnaki. The Anunnaki were half-god, half-man, who came down from the stars. They were instructing the Sumerians in various arts of civilization. They were very strange-looking. They had elongated heads. They looked almost like insect-type people. Or what they call reptilian features in a sense, or a viper visage, as the Watchers were called in the Bible.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“In global cultures, we find constant references to these giant celestial beings coming to Earth and initiating, or instructing humankind. Satan himself is considered to be a seraphim, which means winged serpent or fiery serpent, but yet the word “seraphim” contains the word “ser,” meaning serpent, and “rephaim,” meaning giant.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Was the character we know as Satan really an extraterrestrial being? One who broke with his own species in order to live among our distant ancestors? Did he, along with other so-called fallen angels, actually break with God, not out of spite or arrogance, but instead to help mankind? Perhaps further clues can be found in legends of a flying serpent, and in the story of a Titan who was savagely punished for all eternity.
