This is something I have always wondered about. My beliefs basically are that creationism is not the final truth, evolution is not the final truth - but there is some truth in both. Or maybe we were dropped here by aliens and are a failed scince experiment! LOL
But anyway... according to the bible:
Cain and Abel
1 Now the man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain, and she said, “I have gotten a manchild with the help of the Lord.”
2 Again, she gave birth to his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of flocks, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
[then they had a fight and Cain killed Abel...]
16 Then Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
17 Cain had relations with his wife and she conceived, and gave birth to Enoch; and he built a city, and called the name of the city Enoch, after the name of his son.
So if there was only Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel - who were all these people in the Land of Nod?
