I've been listening to podcasts and reading forums on Atheism for about a year now.
In all the various religious debates I've never heard anyone address a question I had when I was a Christian.
Adam & Eve are the first people, and they had two sons, Cain & Abel. Cain gets banished for killing Abel. Cain then goes to the land of Nod and has a Wife and a whole bunch of kids & grand kids.
If the only people in the world are Adam, Eve & Cain where in the hell did Cain's wife come from?
Also When Cain is banished by God he's afraid that some one will murder him so God put's a mark on him so who ever kills Cain will be punished seven fold.
Who's Cain afraid of?
There's only three people on the earth and he's leaving the other two behind.
I hear a lot's of debates about the two Genesis creation stories. Who bloody cares what order things were created. So the author had a brain fart and got the order wrong in the second chapter, big deal.
I want to know who Cain's wife was and where did she come from?
Did Cain marry a monkey? There are no other people.
This is the biggest Bible inconsistency I can think of and I never hear anyone bring it up.
What do the theists say about this?
Is this topic so old and hoary that no one talks about it any more?
It seems way too obvious that I could be the only one to have thought of it.
Next time someone tells me the Bible is the inerrant word of God I'm going to ask them if they can remember Cain's wifes name and walk away snickering.
