      I second Markedward.
      There were no incest laws for quite a while, so it wasn't a 'sin' nor was it 'wrong'.

        The Bible doesn't give us her name or anything about who she was or what her blood relation to Cain was.

        Why should it bother you about who Cain's wife was?

        I don't think we should concern ourselves with what is not written in the Bible. But take that which is written and accept it as the truth and believe and apply it.

          Was it Cain's sister?

          Were humans created outside of Eden, separately from A&E, perhaps...gasp...evolved?

          Who knows? The bible is silent on the matter. I'm a big believer in that, when scripture is ambiguous on a topic, it is every bit as purposeful as when the bible is very specific. In other words, don't hold any particular view on the subject as an article of faith.

            I would bite but I am likely going to be kicked and slapped for it.

            So Hisw, I'll ask this - BEFORE Jesus was made flesh, What do you think God looked like ?

            this is not an "off the wall" question, and will lead to others

              Ditto on Mark's response... I'll further add a scripture reference:

              “After he begot Seth, the days of Adam were eight hundred years; and he had sons and daughters.” (Genesis 5:4 NKJV)

              Blessings.

                It bothers people because otherwise things don't quite make sense. Only Adam and Eve are created in the garden, Cain all of a sudden has a wife and humans begin to populate earth. . .Presumably with very close blood relatives? What about incest, isn't that wrong? People just naturally have questions.

                Some people find it an intriguing question, I know I do.

                In terms of people 'evolving' outside of the garden and that's where Cain found his wife--absolutely not.. . . The two aren't compatible.

                  I don't believe they were 'evolving' out-side of the garden either, But, perhaps they were there.

                  Ge 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them

                  Note: if anyone will respond to me, then first give deep consideration and answer my first question -

                      Male and female he created them, meaning, Adam and Eve.

                      Why don't you just tell us what you think of how Jesus looked before he was made flesh?

                      There was nothing forbidding incest after the expulsion from the Garden.

                        We defiantly assume it does! But Please note that in Gen 1 God "creates",
                        in Gen2. (with the exception of Eve), God "puts and plants"

                        Why don't you just tell us what you think of how Jesus looked before he was made flesh?

                          You posed the question, so what's the answer?

                            Then there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads as they stood with lowered wings. Above the expanse over their heads was what looked like a throne of sapphire, and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man. I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him.
                            Pre-incarnate, though, arguably, it may be how He appears to man. His eternally existent being, I would think, transcends physical description.

                            When I read the "Let Us make man in Our image," I don't think it refers so much to a physical image, but rather to the spiritual image. We are, after all, the only earthly creatures with spiritual awareness.

                              Genesis chapter 1 God made mankind. Genesis chapter 2 is Adam's story.
