Hi:

I've been thinking about this for a while now . And u know how God sent Adam & Eve to earth after they sined . And they had two sons , Cain & Abel . Cain killed Abel . God punished Cain & he dwelt in the land of Nod .

Cain knew his wife & they had a child (Genesis 4:17)

But how did he meet his wife , if the only people on Earth were Adam , Eve & him?

That's my question...can someone explain it to me?


because adam and eve weren't the only ppl??? the bible is a sham?

Somehow this doesn’t seem like a real Christians thread. Maybe an antireligious person trying to find flaws in the bible while posing it as an innocent question? Maybe to turn over Christians?… Then again, who knows. Totally just going off on a random limb there. Theories, theories.

Yes well that’s what this amounts too. Theories. One theory is that God actually created other people. Another is that there are children not listed. Another is that his bride was a celestial. Another is that while God did create Adam and Eve spontaneously evolution did go on around them. Another is that while Adam and Eve were created through evolution and came first, there were other people who evolved at a slightly slower pace around them. I’m sure if you search hard enough you could find a few more.

Of course…there is always that other theory. Crudely put-

Adam and Eve had only three sons, Cain, Abel and Seth. It then goes on to say that Cain murdered Abel and “…went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.” (Gen 4:16) In Nod he not only found a wife but built a city, which presumably he did not do alone. “…and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch”. (Gen 4:17). Furthermore Adam and Eve did not give birth to Seth until after Cain murdered Abel and was banished to Nod. (Gen 4:25).

The Bible doesn't say that Cain found his wife in Nod. It says that he went to Nod and then “knew” his wife. . The word ‘knew’, means that Cain had sexual relations with his wife, who he could have been already married to when he left for Nod. (The word ‘knew’ is only used in some translations. The New American Standard Bible says “And Cain had relations with his wife…”)

I believe God might've created more humans in the same manner. The place just got crowded so quickly it's hard for me to imagine it otherwise.

Of course, it's more amusing thinking it was "forbidden" love.

So basically Adam & Eve had more daughters? Cain married one of them and that's how the growth of human started?

Ya. "Inter-Family Marriage". God’s laws at the time condemned sexual relations between children and their parents but said nothing about inter-marriage between brother and sister, which apparently did not bear any evil consequences. (Abraham married his half sister.) The more distantly related parents are, the more likely it is that they will have different genetic disorders. Children, inheriting one set of genes from each parent, are likely to end up with pairs of genes containing a maximum of one bad gene in each pair. The good gene tends to override the bad so that a deformity (a serious one, anyway) does not occur.

I would say there were other people that weren't mentioned in the bible who existed at the time. I say this because when God banished Cain, Cain claimed that whoever saw him would kill him...and God responded by saying whoever harms Cain will suffer a fate seven times worse (or something similar)...so from that...since Cain actually worried about being attacked by other people there must've been other people around at the time.
