Mankind was not solely responsible for his downfall. He had help. According to Zecharia Sitchin, after translating Sumerian tablets, he discovered that aliens came here from the 12th planet (Marduk or Nibiru) 3, about 450,000 years ago. They were the ancestors of Sumeria. Rather than pursuing Sitchin's theories on the importance of these aliens in mankinds history, it's more germaine to take Enoch's lead.
In the Book of Enoch, Enoch warned Atlantis of a group of fallen beings called "Watchers." Now here's the interesting thing. Sumerians literally translates as "Watchers." Enoch was warning the Atlanteans of the influences of these aliens. He was a Messenger for the Great White Brotherhood at the time. Many of his prophecies and dictations given on Atlantis have been lost forever. The only teachings we are left with are in The Book of Jasher and The Book of Enoch. This book was around long before Jesus Christ. Many Christians considered it scripture. Jesus himself considered it a handbook and often quoted from it. Some of the early literature of the Church Fathers refer to it. The "Epistle of Barnabus," Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Origen and Clement of Alexandria and Tertullian all referred to Enoch's book. It was widely read and used for three centuries but became discredited along with many other books after the Council of Laodicea. It became an anathema because of its controversial teachings on fallen angels. After being wiped all most entriely from the awareness of mankind, It was rediscovered in 1773, three copies having been preserved by an Ethioptic Church. Here is a short introduction to the Book of Enoch from Forbidden Mysteries of Enoch by Elizabeth Clare Prophet pp. 9-14:
The Book of Enoch speaks from that obscure realm where history and mythology overlap. Privy to those unfathomable founts of ancient lore, its author draws for the reader a brimming cup of secret wisdom.
A primordial drama of good and evil, light and dark, unfolds. The book tracks Enoch's footsteps back to antiquity's timelessness—back to the first hint of corruption upon a pristine world: earth.
The trouble began, according to the Book of Enoch, when the heavenly angels and their leader named Samyaza developed an insatiable lust for the `daughters of men' upon earth and an irrepressible desire to beget children by these women. Samyaza feared to descend alone to the daughters of men, and so he convinced two hundred angels called Watchers to accompany him on his mission of pleasure.
Then the angels took oaths and bound themselves to the undertaking by "mutual execrations"—curses. Once such a pact was sealed, betrayal was punishable by unnamed horrors.
In their gang-inspired bravado, the angels descended and took wives from among the daughters of men. They taught the women sorcery, incantations, and divination—twisted versions of the secrets of heaven.
The plot thickens like a science-fiction thriller—easier to take as fantasy than as fact. The women conceive children from these angel— evil giants . The giants devour all the food that the men of earth can produce. Nothing satiates their hunger. They kill and eat birds, beasts, reptiles, and fish. To their gargantuan appetites, nothing is sacrosanct. Soon even Homo sapiens becomes a delicacy. (7:1-15)
As the story goes, one spiteful angel named Azazyel creates unnatural accouterments for their consorts—like eye makeup and fancy bracelets—to enhance their sex appeal. As for the men, Azazyel teaches them "every species of iniquity," including the means for making swords, knives, shields, breastplates—all the instruments of war. (8:1-9)
There, millennia ago, someone explained war not as a man-invented or God-sent plague, but as a vengeful act of a fallen angel barred from the planes of God's power. The implication is that man, through one form of manipulation or another, latched on to the war games of the fallen angels and allowed himself to commit genocide in defense of their archrivalries.
But there is more to Enoch's account of the Watchers. When the men of earth cry out against the atrocities heaped upon them, heaven hears their plea. The mighty archangels—Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Suryal, and Uriel—appeal on behalf of earth's people before the Most High, the King of kings. (9:1-14)
The Lord orders Raphael to bind Azazyel hand and foot. Gabriel is sent to destroy the "children of fornication," the offspring of the Watchers—by inciting them to their own self-destruction in mutual slaughter. Michael is then authorized to bind Samyaza and his wicked offspring "for seventy generations underneath the earth, even to the day of judgment."9 And God sends the Great Flood to wipe out the evil giants, the children of the Watchers.
But in the succeeding generations (after the sinking of the continent of Atlantis) the giants return once again to haunt mankind. Likewise it seems that the Watchers will hold power over man (in some curiously undefined way) until the final judgment of these angels comes, which, the author implies, is long overdue.
There is also a most significant passage near the end of the book which speaks of the latter days upon earth:
In those days will the angels return and hurl themselves upon the East, ... to stir up the kings and provoke in them a spirit of unrest. . . .
And they will march up to and tread under foot the land of His elect ones. . . .
They will begin to fight amongst themselves. . . till the number of corpses through their slaughter is beyond count, and their punishment be no idle one. ... (Book of Enoch, Charles translation)
This seems a chilling prophecy of our own time— with wars and rumors of wars in "the East" and the countless corpses in a holy land. There is no date stamped on the prediction, but a few word changes in the right places would make it duplicate today's headlines.
The main theme of the Book of Enoch is the final judgment of these fallen angels, the Watchers, and their progeny, the evil spirits. But several other scenarios are also noteworthy.
In chapter 12 of the book, the Lord says to Enoch, scribe of righteousness,
Go tell the Watchers of heaven, who have deserted the lofty sky, and their holy everlasting station, who have been polluted with women, And have done as the sons of men do, by taking to themselves wives, and who have been greatly corrupted on the earth;
That on the earth they shall never obtain peace and remission of sin. For they shall not rejoice in their offspring; they shall behold the slaughter of their beloved; shall lament for the destruction of their sons; and shall petition for ever; but shall not obtain mercy and peace. (12:5-7)
In chapter 13 Enoch declares the Lord's judgment to Azazyel:
Thou shalt not obtain peace. A great sentence is gone forth against thee. He shall bind thee;
Neither shall relief, mercy, and supplication be thine, on account of the oppression which thou hast taught;
And on account of every act of blasphemy, tyranny, and sin, which thou hast discovered to the children of men. (13:1-3)
Chapter 13 also describes how the Watchers became terrified and trembled and besought Enoch to write for them a prayer for forgiveness, that he might cause their prayer to ascend to God, since they themselves could not address him on account of their offense. Enoch then reports to the Watchers:
I have written your petition; and in my vision it has been shown me, that what you request will not be granted you as long as the world endures.
Judgment has been passed upon you: your request will not be granted you.
From this time forward, never shall you ascend into heaven; He has said, that on the earth He will bind you, as long as the world endures.
But before these things you shall behold the destruction of your beloved sons; you shall not possess them, but they shall fall before you by the sword.
Neither shall you entreat for them, nor for yourselves;
But you shall weep and supplicate in silence. (14:2-7)
In chapter 15, the Glorious and the Effulgent, the Lord God, speaks again to righteous Enoch.
Go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent thee to pray for them, You ought to pray for men, and not men for you. . . . You being spiritual, holy, and possessing a life which is eternal, have polluted yourselves with women; have begotten in carnal blood; have lusted in the blood of men; and have done as those who are flesh and blood do. These however die and perish.
Therefore have I given to them wives, that they might cohabit with them; that sons might be born of them; and that this might be transacted upon earth.
But you from the beginning were made spiritual, possessing a life which is eternal, and not subject to death for ever.
Therefore I made not wives for you, because, being spiritual, your dwelling is in heaven. (15:1, 3-7)
The Lord further explains to Enoch the nature of the offspring of the Watchers and the evil that they wreak upon the earth:
Now the giants, who have been born of spirit and of flesh, shall be called upon earth evil spirits, and on earth shall be their habitation. Evil spirits shall proceed from their flesh, because they were created from above; from the holy Watchers was their beginning and primary foundation. Evil spirits shall they be upon earth, and the spirits of the wicked shall they be called. The habitation of the spirits of heaven shall be in heaven; but upon earth shall be the habitation of terrestrial spirits, who are born on earth.
The spirits of the giants shall be like clouds, which shall oppress, corrupt, fall, contend, and bruise upon earth.
They shall cause lamentation. No food shall they eat; and they shall be thirsty; they shall be concealed, and shall not rise up against the sons of men, and against women; for they come forth during the days of slaughter and destruction.
And as to the death of the giants, wheresoever their spirits depart from their bodies, let their flesh, that which is perishable, be without judgment. Thus shall they perish, until the day of the great consummation of the great world. A destruction shall take place of the Watchers and the impious. (15:8-10; 16:1)
Because of so great a sin, the Lord tells the Watchers, "Never therefore shall you obtain peace." According to the text of the Book of Enoch, the Lord's judgement against the Watchers prevails—then and now. ...
Corrobative evidence for this fantastic tale is found in the Dead Sea scrolls:
The Enoch Scroll
The Enoch Scroll, from the Dead Sea Scrolls at Qumran

13. [and have not done according to his command, and tran]sgressed against him; (and have spoken) haughty and harsh words, with your impure mouths,
