    ...if they were truly the only humans on Earth, and you take the Bible at face value, then Cain's wife would have had to have been one of his sisters....and since they were the first people, their gene pool would have been pure and there wouldn’t have been birth-defectives in their children or whatnot....

    ...there were no "laws" of incest at that time, and there was no need for them because of the purity of the first human's genes....the need for incest "laws" came as time progressed and our genes became less "perfect"....so it became taboo for Man to procreate with close kin, therefore protecting humans from the gene deterioration (deformities) that results from incest....all Scriptural "law" has reason and meaning...

    Took me some time to understand this, and I also had to find the Scripture which stated that Cain did indeed marry his own sister.

    Goes to show, whatever knowledge the Father wants a person to have, He can give it when He wills and it doesn't have to be according to all of what one has read.:)

    But when you do find the writings, the Father shows confirmation in that which we already believed, I know. I believe this is strongest when one has faith in the Father through the son who sacrificed for our sins, and I know that if we believe in all the Son has taught and has done in His works and His resurrection, then these thing come easier to us as we search, for He wants His flock to have wisdom and understanding, with the salvation he has brought.

    Genes don't become less "perfect"; they mutate. Mutations are the driving engine of evolution....

    We should never use science in an attempt to explain religion.

    Here's what I've come up with ... (ya'll please chime in for clarity ... Amen??? :)

    Susta Liberty Lady ... you sho' can work a susta' !!!
    Cain’s Genealogy
    GOD
    Mother – Eve / Father – Adam
    CAIN
    Cain & his wife birthed a son Enoch; the Scriptures trace the line of Cain's descendants for five generations, coming down to a patriarch named Lamech.

    "And to Enoch was born Irad, and Irad begot Mehujael, and Mehujael begot Methusael, and Methusael begot Lamech" (Gen. 4:18)



    Oh ... we're just gettin' started!!!:thinking:.............

    More begatin' ...

    Lamech the Cainite
    and his family


    Holy Scriptures says ...

    "Lamech took two wives for himself. The name of the first was Adah, and the name of the other was Zillah.


    Zillah - Meaning: shadow or shadow protection

    one of the wives of Lamech, of the line of Cain, and mother of Tubal-cain

    Adah bore Jabal; he was the father of those who dwell in tents and raise cattle. His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all of those who play the harp and the recorder. As for Zillah (wifey #2), she also bore Tubal-cain, a smith who forged instruments of both bronze and iron.

    The sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah." (Gen. 4:19-22)

    Scripture says little of Lamech's daughter Naamah besides her name and the fact that she was Tubal-cain's sister, daughter of Lamech and Zillah. The fifth in descent from Cain.


    Lamech was The father of Noah, also mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus the Christ (Luke 3:36). He was a son of the oldest known man and patriarch Methuselah. Noah was the oldest of Lamech's several sons (Gen. 5:25-31; Luke 3:36). Lamech was 777 years old when he died (Gen. 5:31), and was the seventh in descent from Seth. He is the only son of Methuselah that is mentioned in the Bible.

    Oh ... There's more!!!

    Enoch
    …was a righteous man … taken-up … directly to Heaven, without dying! The oldest son of Cain (Gen. 4:17)—Scripture notes that he was the father of Irad and grandfather of Mehujael.

    Enoch was the son of Jared, and father of Methuselah (Gen. 5:21; Luke 3:37). His father was one hundred and sixty-two years old when he was born. After the birth of Methuselah, Enoch “walked with God three hundred years”(Gen. 5:22-24), when he was translated without tasting death. His whole life on Earth was three hundred and sixty-five years.

    He was the “seventh from Adam” (Jude 1:14), as distinguished from the son of Cain, the third from Adam. He is spoken of in the catalogue of Old Testament worthies in the Epistle to the Hebrews (11:5). When he was translated, only Adam, so far as recorded, had as yet died a natural death, and Noah was not yet born. Mention is made of Enoch’s prophesying only in Jude 1:14
