It is better to question the inconsistencies, in order to better understand what you read.<quoted text>Whoa!! That scrambled my brain a bit but I can follow U though. Good example but this is not the case according to what is written in scripture about these first few people. Seth was the third male born and Cain had a wife and child before Seth's birth. Hmmmm!!! I'm not trying to be a "heathen" or nothing. I just want to get a better understanding of what I'm told to follow that will give me some kind of peace when I pass this life.
You bring up valid points that show that teh Bible is incomplete, or only wanted to tell parts of a story that could be harmonized with other stories, even though the story contains errors.
The Bible is in err, and one must first admit through honesty that it is, before they can really understand it completely.
Exactly a point you couold utilize is how Cain went to the "land of Nod".
As you can see, nowhere in the Bible does "God" ever creates this land, but for some reason, it suddenly appears, and also appears to have people there, because Cain went there and lived with a mark on his head. Why would he need a mark on his head, if there were no people to view the mark?
It just doesn't add up and shows the incompleteness.
