Whom did sons of Adam and Eve married?
17 May 09
Adam was made in the second chapter of Genesis, and Eve was created from his rib. How ever in chapter one God made men and women on the sixth day. So obviously there were people on earth before Adam and Eve. The line of Adam though was a special line, a line of Kings. This is how Cain was able to go out and find a wife, he married into the elder race of man.

good question. adams' children had no other way, so the brother and sister married. that is what abraham also did. there is no other way other than this. i have another doubt. that is about adam and eve. it is said that eve was created out of adam. so what will be their relationships. brother-sister? No. But how about if one is the parent of the other? that is a possiblity. here it is more like cutting a trunk of the tree and planting it to creating another one of the same kind. it was mistake on the part of god, rather very foolish to create only one pair initially. Wonder how he could turn out to be so foolish and we accept him as god? any intelligent man would definitely have lots of questions on this. that leads us to another question - is bible reliable.

srganesh, i stand by my statement. the god of that old testament fits well into the statement i made. you seem to say that god cannot make mistakes, and i too agree with you. than this god of Old Testament is more human than godly. there is no doubt about it. aminul, if i question god about his intelligence, he should feel happy that someone is using the grey matter he put inside his creation. god is not in the business of teaching and forgiving. my statements may sound very hard, but by not being inquisitive we are insulting the almighty. do not think as per your religious book. stand aside and think logically for a moment. it is the same almighty who gave us the brains to think and analyze everything logically. now who is insulting the almighty? Me? if you notice carefully, the god of adam and eve was indeed a human creation and so all the drawbacks of a human has creeped into him. whether you insult him or call him names, it makes no difference to anyone. I hope both of you understood what I meant.

They add son like Seth, Adam look a like. A righteous man. They had daughters too but most of the women are not mention in the Bible. Sons married their daughters. Family-relatives relationship in marriage finish in time of great Moses the prophet 10 commandments instituted. Only exception 4th generation upward.

Genesis 5 vs 4 tells us that Adam had more children than the three sons acutally named in Scripture. It says "meanwhile, he became father to sons and daughters" Adam called his wife Eve, Genesis 3:20, because she was to become the mother of EVERYONE living. Therefore, Cain and his other brothers would have married their sisters or possibly nieces.
