They were renamed angels by the one god worshippers, but they were not angels. The problem is that the connection in the story is not being made to its source, so it seems like it stands away from all other myths. But Genesis right up to Canaan being expelled is a retelling of the Egyptian creation myths. The angels responsible for the mating with humans are the demi-Gods of Egypt, Osiris, and Seth. The men of old and of renown are the demi-gods themselves, the 5 being Atum, Osiris, Isis, Nephthys and Seth.
Actually I am not forgetting anything. The creation story in Genesis seems to be two-fold and confounding many. It is in fact three-fold, and incorporates every Egyptain creation myth, all three of them, where the third makes the demi-gods into humans to meet the one-god theory. The flood recreates all three for them starting all over with the Egyptian god Seth who was reverred by the one-god Egyptians before the supposed exodus. The Hebrew geneaology has been tampered with as is evident if one inspects same. Hence the Hebrew son of Adam, Seth. The bad boy brother slayer, the one who caused all of the Aten gods to be erased as well as can be in Egyptian history.

YOu forgetting the flood and according to Old testement history there were inhabitants of earth before the flood, while according to Egyption Myth there was nothing before the flood. The great flood is often the biggest determination as to what came first since almost every religion or myth has that story. if fact, Egypt has a problem with its myth since the Upper nile one, and lower nile ones are differant.
The angels are the Egyptian gods, the story as told as to why Ra wanted to destroy humankind...
and the fact that angels are better translated as "Messengers" serving God it really throws the comparison assumption

Trying to understand the Universe by quoting the Bible is like trying to understand the world by quoting supermarket tabloids.

Maybe God and Angels are genderless. Doesn't really matter to me. I assume they are male as Adam was made in God's image and Eve was made second, to be his partner.
Again that doesn't mean women are *lesser* just not male. Which is cool with me. I kinda think they are an improvement on the first try Kinda like that first try at a new car. The next year always is an improvement on it
God said that eve was to be adams partner, not his slave, not his waiter, but his equal.
Women are equal to man in personhood, but God made a system where the man is acountable for him and his better half.
