Since we have some theists throwing out challenges to the validity of the bible thought i would bring up my favorite bible fun quotes

 

Genesis 4.

 

The full text can be found here

It starts off with Adam and Eve outside the garden after they are condemned to multiply.

 

Which they immediately do and bear 2 sons. Cain and Abel

 

Now the fun part begins. Cain kills Abel and god punishes him to wander the earth.

 

 13 Cain said to the LORD, “My punishment is more than I can bear. 14 Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.”

 15 But the LORD said to him, “Not so[e]; anyone who kills Cain will suffer vengeance seven times over.” Then the LORD put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him. 16 So Cain went out from the LORD’s presence and lived in the land of Nod,[f] east of Eden.

 

Now a few weird things get mentioned. Keep in mind at this point there were 4 people on earth now there are 3 as Abel is dead. Who is Cain worried will kill him while he is wandering? Where did the land of Nod come from? Why did god need to mark Cain? His parents know who he is.

 

So the next part of the story

 

17 Cain made love to his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch. Cain was then building a city, and he named it after his son Enoch. 18 To Enoch was born Irad, and Irad was the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael was the father of Methushael, and Methushael was the father of Lamech.

 

Where did Cains wife come from? Its not his sister because Adam and Eve dont procreate again until verse 25

25 Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth,[h] saying, “God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him.” 26 Seth also had a son, and he named him Enosh

 

 

So thoughts? especially theists please.

I heard a theory from a theist that the first "creation of man" was actually not Adam and Eve, but just a bunch of regular people who got put onto the Earth. Then later God created Adam and Eve and stuck them in Eden. Honestly, I find this vastly more plausible than all of us descending from Adam and Eve(who were created twice?). In this theory, Cain then marries one of the existing(non Eden) peoples... All of this says nothing for the post-flood incest which, even if each of the wives were from different backgrounds(genetically), would result in a minimum of first cousin pairings in the first post-flood generation.

I just assumed that Cain married his father's first wife, Lilith.
