One of the strangest tales that you’ll ever hear of is definitely the story of the Book of Enoch, as its mere existence is believed to be quite the conundrum for most historians and religious people alike.
Although we have proof of people from the 2nd and 3rd centuries worshipping it on days it is no longer practiced as most rulers at the time deemed it to be illegitimate and quite preposterous to the point where they no longer allowed anyone to publicly or privately worship it.
This is why you don’t see anyone worshipping the Book of Enoch to this day. The majority of its supporters were ancient Christians as a whole, but with time even they were forced to stop worshipping it for obvious reasons.
The book begins in the first person as it tells the story of Enoch after his untimely demise. Similar to Dante’s inferno, the story tells us what the afterlife looks like, but unlike Dante’s Inferno, this takes quite a different turn, to say the least.
First of all, the character goes to heaven, not hell, and what’s even more interesting about it is that he doesn’t come across God at the end of the tunnel but a race of beings known as the Enlightened ones.
This is where the true genesis of the world is explained, and the weirdest part of it all is definitely the fact that the story appears to be a play by play reiteration of the ancient tales that the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia created.
The tale of the ancient astronauts is reinterpreted here, as many experts believe that this was originally someone that had uncovered the truth behind the ancient Sumerian tablets before they were even discovered in the first place and that through this book they attempted to convert people to their religion without even telling the people about it.
