Originally posted by darvlayWhat sister? I thought there was only C&A, then later, sister I guess. Either he waited ten or twenty years and porked his own sister (NOW I undersand why the human race is so screwed up) or there were people around who were not made by god. Or something.
Cain either porked his own Sister, his own Mother or both. What a swingin' cat.

I thought A&E were the only people, having C&A, C kills A but C gets married somehow. What's wrong with this picture?

Cain married one of his relatives, probably a sister.[/b]
Originally posted by sonhouseWomen's bodies are the conduit through which the species reproduces, it is true. However, women's bodies miscarry, while women themselves also have abortions, flouting their reproductive duty. And is a woman identical with her body?
Well it seems clear they can be trusted to reproduce....

Given the limited genetic stock available in the biblical account of human origins, why do we not all display the signs of chronic inbreeding?
Originally posted by jaywillThe good book doesn't state that Eden was the only garden, does it? It simply recounts the tale of Adam and Eve, two people who fell. The world may have teemed with gardens!
I don't know.
