We do know that Enoch did not die and was taken into heaven which makes him special in some way

I think yay.
It explains a lot:
It explains how we were taught a lot of non sense (idol worship, make up, jewelery, war, weapon making, charms, drugs, lustful sex, architecture, etc.), how the pyramids and other monuments came about, it gives more credence to the great deluge and why it happened more detailed about the motive, it explains where giants fit in the picture, where all those people "from the stars" or "those from the heavens came" many cultures speak of, it explains the holy war that is going on now. The book starts with stating that it is meant for a future generation far away from when it was written, a future generation that is repeating the unrighteous acts that were in Noahs days, ie present day, gene merging/manipulation, cloning, destroying Gods creations, GMO, etc.
Scripture says that Enoch walked with God and was spared death, the book of Enoch says the same. Another cool aspect is the book explains areal views of river channels and volcanoes, it describes the river channels like veins on the human body ,this is interesting considering when the book was written if this is true, how could they know this?
In the end it all broils down to......faith since we can't prove when and who wrote it. I just find it makes a lot of sense and answers a lot of the holes we have in our history.

...We have a book...that seems like more of a miracle than all others. That we
even know of it's existence let alone have a translation?
Considering the fact that being authentic puts it to a
time before the flood and was brought to this world, by
none other than Noah himself? In my mind stamps this
as Holy Scripture indeed.
And it's wholly fascinating even if it's only deep antiquity
sci fi to some. That alone holds tons of interest. It just has
to be scripture.
Is that more what you wanted in terms of yay or nay? I don't have a blanket approval or rejection of it.

The OP describes apocryphal texts as being sometimes historically accurate, as if contrasting that with the 'infallible' bible...that's where I was lost...
