FROM WHERE DID WE COME

Adam & Eve had 3 sons. CAIN KILLED ABEL. Everyone forgets about Seth. where did the rest of us supposedly come from? Did Cain sleep with his mother, or was it Seth who did that. In any event, if they begat daughters, it still does not explain who we all came from.

I myself get confused when i try to learn about the bible there are things that really confuse me cuz the one thing i have noticed is they very rarely speak of any daughters so i have to say i have personaly asked the same questions

No, after cain killed Abel, Cain was sent away by god with one of his own sister. and that they have their offspring. Since it was begginning brother and sisters were married at that time. We all came from seth line, since entire human were wiped out at noah's time. And Noah was from seth family. Hope you understand that, and nice to have discussion about bible. By the way do you know about resurrection that bilbe promissed ? Abel and all good people will live again.

Cain was adam and eves first son. Abel was of the first generation of adam and eves children. this does not mean that abel was their second son. it also does not mean that there were not daughters before cain. it is mentioned in the bible that adam and eve had many sons and daughters. adam lived for 930 years. this leaves a lot of time in which to bear children. at the time the gene pool was perfect, meaning that brothers and sisters were able to procreate and marry with no problems for many years. perfect gene pool equals perfect dna. no deformities. marriage between siblings and close relations was not forbidden until moses came along and god forbade it. this leaves a gap of about 2000 years in which it was not taboo. by this time there were mistakes in genetics to bore deformed children and there was also enough people to not have to marry siblings or close relatives. knowing this does not make me believe or disbelieve. i just like to know my 'facts' on a subject before saying anything!
