Proofs the Sons of God Were Angels (by Finis Jennings Dake)
1 The expression sons of God is found only 5 times in the O.T. and every time it is used of angels (Gen. 6:1-4; Job 1:6; 2:1; 38:7).
2 Some translations (the Sept., Moffat, and others) read, angels of God in Gen. 6:1-4 3 Josephus says, “many angels of God accompanied with women, and begat sons that proved unjust
4 The Ante-Nicene Fathers also refer to angels as falling “into impure love of virgins, and were subjugated by the flesh.
5 Both testaments of the Bible teach that some angels committed sex sins and lived contrary to nature. Gen. 6:1 -4 gives the history of such sinning. In 2 Pet. 2:4-5 we have the statement that angels did sin before the flood and for their sin were cast down to hell to be reserved until judgment.
6 The one scripture used to teach that angels are sexless (Mt. 22:30) does not say that they are.
7 There are 2 classes of fallen angels—those loose with Satan who will be cast down to earth during the future tribulation (Rev. 12:7-12), and those who are now bound in hell for committing what the Bible calls fornication (2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6-7).
8 In 1 Pet. 3:19-20 we see that Christ “went and preached unto the spirits In prison; which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing.” Who are these spirits in prison, if not the confined angels who once lived contrary to their nature—in sin with the daughters of men (Gen. 6:1-4)?

Unfortunately it won’t matter how much evidence you show. Most people will never question what they already believe

What do they believe? All seems logical to me. Fallen angels.

The fact that some angels “kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation” (Jude 6) to commit sin makes it understandable how a sex sin could be accomplished by them. The Gr. for habitation is oiketerion. It is used only twice in Scripture: of the bodies of men being changed to spiritual bodies (2 Cor. 5:2); and the angels having a bodily change, or at least a lowering of themselves in some way (Jude 6-7).

Angels do not have creative qualities (procreation) so you are wrong in your assessment.
