They were illegals from what is now known as Mexico. ;)~<quoted text>
I think we are supposed to believe that Adam and Eve had "unashamed" naked sex before the whole fruit fiasco. You remember the "be fruitful and multipy" orders?
The "shame" of nudity wasn't really about nakedness at all.
Having to wear clothes was just a reminder that they had disobeyed Yahweh.
Apparently having babies in the Garden was going to be painless (but they never got a chance to try that one out), but Yahweh thought it would a special punishment for females to have painful birthings. What a guy!
I like this part:
Gen 4:14 Cain is worried after killing Abel and says, "Every one who finds me shall slay me." This is a strange concern since there were only two other humans alive at the time -- his parents!
Gen 4:15 "And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him." Again, who are these people that might happen upon Cain?
Gen 4:16 "And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD." Curious. How does one leave the presence of something that is supposedly omnipresent?
Gen 4:17 "And Cain knew his wife." That's nice, but where the hell did she come from?
Gen 4:26 "And to Seth ... was born a son." Where'd he find his wife?
First we have Adam then Eve then Cain and Abel...then all these other people show up. Did Yahweh whip them up out of some dust too but forgot to mention it? Are they NPCs?
