Now, I've been reading the bible from a purely curious standpoint and I'm currently on the old testament, still in Genesis (I think) but anyway. For the record, if any atheists answer in here, please be respectful of everyone else or I'll ask the mods to close the thread. Work from the premise that God does exist.
If the old testament is correct and Adam and Eve were the beginning of Human kind, where did Canes wife come from? He was banished to another land and suddenly has a wife. So, maybe when the old testament talks about the beginning, it's talking about the beginning of the followers of God, not the beginning in its entirety? Cause there's whole civilizations talked about already from when Adam and Eves grand children go exploring, even given their incredibly long life spans..
