    If Cain killed Abel then who did Cain have sex with to continue his family and there on?

    Might I recommend you read the story first then readdress your question. ;)

    Read it yourself and tell me why my question was so misunderstanding.

    First, it doesn't say that Cain and Abel were the only two children, it just focused on them for the moral. Later on they would have had to have had more anyway. Also, since they were both male it makes no difference what the outcome of the story was anyway.

    Cain married one of his sisters, just like the rest of Adam's children. So basically we're all inbred!

    This is a really classic problem with those that want to bash the Bible. I'd think atheists would be lining up to shut down this sort of thread and denounce goshinj.

    Just the moral of the story? The bible is the bible and everything in it is supposed to have happened. So, people who beleive in the bible take everything from it as true I suppose. If not, why would they talk about religion and the bible in such serious ways and even quote scripture from it when talking to others and preaching. Also, I have no idea why you are even bringing up the idea of atheists in this thread because I beleive in God. I was simply asking a question to get input from others. Atheists beleive there is no God. You may want to re-word your question. I'm still waiting for someone to answer this question about the bible. Thanks.

    That depends on who you talk to. The moral of this story, is that you are acting like a pot. ;)

    I'm so bored with posters that have been here for 10 minutes or in your case 9 posts and think they're going to just jump right in and be taken seriously. You come on like you do and you look like a troll. So oh big surprise when you get treated like a troll.

    "Everything in it [the Bible] is supposed to have happened" according to some, not all.

    "If not, why would they talk about religion and the bible in such serious ways" because important stuff is usually talked about in serious ways?

    "I beleive in God" Do you? Then why not preface your thread with some fucking context? Oh, right. Where would the fun be in that?

    "You may want to re-word your question" Nah. You may want to re-word yours tho. Or not. No 1 really cares, either way.
