Who Mad Who
If we go to the beginning of creation, in the Old Testament we find that God “Yahweh Elohim” ( meaning “Lord God” ) created man to be of his image and to relate to Him.
Yahweh Elohim :
Yahweh is the name of God as given to Moses at the burning tree.
Elohim means to fear as in “the highest being to be feared”.

We also know that God is not one being. We do not know how many Gods there are exactly but at least three, The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. In the beginning it states in Genesis 1:26 ” Let [us] make man in [our] image, in [our] likeness..”.
The Hebrew word for God Elohim is a description of multiplicity of powers. It basically means the supreme God over all other Gods.
Yahweh is actually the pronunciation of Gods name which is YHWH . In English that means “I am that I am”.
If we go by the bible then we must believe that only two “ humans ” were on earth and all other humans were born of them. This is the way the human race was formed according the Hebrew Bible as described by Moses.
There are those who say that is is not the way it happened and people were evolved from simians as a result of genetic abnormalities being passed down over many years from parent to child.
Some would say if we all came from one parent , Adam and Eve then we would all most likely be deformed in some way due to incest. This would hold true these days but maybe not so in the long ago past. We will dive into this past and see what was going on and if in fact we are all the product of incest or if none or some are or perhaps there were others on earth.
We need to dig a bit deeper into Genesis to find out exactly who made who and when they were made. A lot of this is information has to be pulled from things that happened along the way as it is not written to in detail. One must read between the lines to figure it out.
What is the Reason for Doubt
First one must realize that Genesis 1 is a chronology and Genesis 2 is a logical account that sets up the way into chapter 3.
Chronological order is an even in time as it happened. Day 1 earth, Day 2 light , Day 3 ….
Logical order is more of events as they actually happened in detail with each event leading the way for the next.
The reason that people say that Genesis 1 could not possibly have happened as stated is because of Cain and his wife. Cain was married and as he and Abel were the only two men besides Adam on earth and Eve , their mother was the only ishshah (meaning “from man” pronounced eesh shaw) on earth the time. Cain must have married his mother , right ?
The word ishshah is the word for “woman,” and it means “from man.” It is a derived from two Hebrew words ‘iysh (pronounced: eesh) and enowsh, which both mean “man.” In Genesis 2:23 the name “woman” (ishshah) is given Eve, the one who came from Adam.
Going back again to Adam and Eve we find that they were the only humans on earth. Adam named his wife Eve because she would become the mother of all the living .
We know there were no other humans because when God brought to Adam all living things for him to name and find a helper to keep him company there were no suitable helpers to be had, only animals. [ Genesis 2:20 ] So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him.
This lends credence to the fact that some people were created in Gods image and others evolved over time from genetic abnormalities in Simians. Evolution of some humans is of course a scientific proven fact. This does not mean how ever that some people were not created by God. This would also be the reason Christians need to send missionaries to all the tribes of the world. If all humans were descendants of Adam then the tribes would already know God.
Another reason for doubt is the grain growing in the fields. They say the fact that plants grew in the fields after Cain and Abel were born is a contradiction to Genesis 1 creation as God created all the plants. This is not so as the crops in fields were not created until after Cain was born as there was no one to work in the fields. When Adam and Eve were banished from Eden they had Cain and thus a man to work the fields.
[Genesis 3:17] “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life.”
Then of course you have them billions of years and dinosaurs.
Well we must not forget one very important fact about the ancient Hebrews. They were master at teaching. They knew how to make a story stick in the minds of those they told it to. Most of the stories in the bible are told in parables.
Now this is fact not something I am making up. The Hebrews knew that telling the story of something that was not real interesting would result in the person hearing it to simply forget it all together or at least parts of it as the human memory is very flawed. This is why you can tell a short story to a group of people one at a time and it will end up being changed by the time it gets to the last person. [ Ever play that game as a kid?]
so they used these tales to make it interesting and memorable. i.e ” a man was walking down the road and and he felt that God told him to do X” . Well that is not so memorable but ” A man was walking down the road with his donkey and an angel appeared and spoke through the donkey and told the man that god said to do X” is very memorable especially to kids.
That is the reason that parables are many in the bible and most bible stories people are taught are not actually what happened but parables.
I suspect that the making of earth and man is a parable also. This would explain the lack of dinosaurs and billions of years.

What About Dinosaurs ?
Well the bible makes no mention of dinosaurs. We do know they were here so does that mean the bible is a story and not the real account of man ?
No , it does not. You must first realize that early man , not too long ago actually would have no idea of a dinosaur and could not comprehend the matter nor of the earth being billions of years old before man came around. They had never come across the fossils as we have. Mentioning them to humans would have been a waste of time. On top of that the bible is an account of man and not of creatures before man.
It does not say in the old testament that were no other creatures on earth before God created all the animals and plants and then man. It mention it being empty between days but That is how Moses wrote it. God rested on the 7th day after creating the earth and heavens creatures and man.Genesis 1 is not a
There is no way to know exactly why there is no mention of dinosaurs and why Moses only wrote that everything was created in them 7 days. Perhaps that is just the way God told it to him, leaving out the billions of years prior to his creation of man as Moses would not be able to put a scale to billions of years. We will never know for sure.
This is how ever a very valid argument against God creating man. Although I do not subscribe to the idea.
The First Children
It is said that Cain was the first born child and that he had to wait a very long time to get married as he would have to wait for a sister to be born and come to age. We are not really sure about that . It does not say in the bible that he was the first child born.
Nor does it say that Abel was second and Seth third. They are in that order as it is chronological and pertinent to the story and means nothing as to birth rank.
The bible makes no mention of many children of Adam or his descendants. It seems as though the lineage of Noah is the only one of importance as far as mention of birth rank.
It is said by Jewish historians that Adam and Eve had 33 sons and 23 daughters. If that number is not big enough for you then relish i this fact ; Adam was 800 years old after Seth was born. Wow , 800 and still getting it up! He lived to be 930.
They had two children Cain and Abel. Cain came first shortly after Adam and Eve partook of the tree of knowledge and were banished from the Garden of Eden by God [Genesis 3:23]. It is likely that they had other children also in this time , perhaps women but no mention is made to this.
Who Else Was on Earth Besides Humans
We do know that other beings were on earth besides humans. This is stated in Genesis 6 . “the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.”
The sons of God are not referring to Adam and his male children. Reading on in chapter 6 tells us this. There were Nephilim on earth. They are the children of the sons of God and daughters of humans. References to this are in Genesis 6:4 , Numbers 13:33 and Ezekiel 32:27
God was not happy about humans mating with the sons of God and so made there days numbered to 120 years.
There were also Cherubim on earth. These were unearthly creatures that attended to God and also guarded the Garden of Eden. One was set to keep Adam from returning to the Garden and eating of the tree of life.
When Was Cain Born
(Genesis 4:1) Tells us that Cain was the first child of Adam and Eve. He and his brothers, Abel (Genesis 4:2) and Seth (Genesis 4:25), were of the first generation of children born on earth. Adam and Eve had many other children. These 3 are the only ones specifically mentioned for some unknown reason. Perhaps because they are the only ones that were male and without them no story could continue.
Cain was likely born early on. Adam and Eve were commanded by God to multiply [Genesis 1:28] so they would have had more than 3 children in 130 years. Adam was created as a man so did not have to wait to become of age. He just jumped right on it. Hey when your naked with your babe, things gonna happen!
Cain was a farmer and worked the fields. This was because of Adam and Eve eating of the tree of knowledge. They were banished from the Garden of Eden and was cursed by God ; as told in Genesis 3:17
We do not know exactly when Cain married but we do know it was either to his sister or perhaps a niece but less likely.
Who Was Abel
Abel came along some time later but no way to know when. We do know Abel was an adult when killed by Cain as he was a shepherd tending to the flocks he raised. We have no mention of him being married.
Who was Seth
Seth was born when Adam was 130 years old. He was a shepherd and tended the flocks that e raised. He was born after Cain killed Abel [Genesis 4:8]. Eve saw him as a replacement for Abel [Genesis 4:25-26] ; a gift from God. Seth lived to be 912 years and had sons and daughters.
The Incest Rule
Those who say Genesis is wrong and that all humans could not have come from Adam and Eve do so because of the law that is no person shall marry his relative. This law is true and is there to protect from deformed babies being born. How ever it was not the law at the time of Cain’s marriage nor for the next 2,500 years.
This would be good cause to refute the words of Moses, who wrote Genesis except for one thing. There was no law against marrying your sister at that time as there was no one else on earth you cold marry. The thinking that he may have had sex with his mother does not fly since he married the woman who gave birth to his son and his mother was already married and thus could not marry him.
There is a reason for marrying a close relative in those days. There were no other humans on earth to marry but relatives. The man Adam, was created by God as a perfect being without faults. His wife was created from him and was also not defective in any way. So their children would also be non defective. The genetics passed on would not have defects for many generations that would result in a deformity and so if children or cousins had children then the genes would also be non defective.
This goes on for 2500 years until Moses is speaking to God at the burning bush [Leviticus 18:10] . The law then is changed. There is no more need to marry in close family as the world had been populated with enough people that were separated far enough genetically. Also by then the defects in genes would have been starting to show up.
The Deformed Genes
Adam and Eve were perfect genetically but when they ate of the tree of knowledge they became flawed and were no doubt now subject to disease and other things humans suffer. This flaw would be passed on but not apparent in any deformation until much later. A flawed gene might produce a crooked nose. This gene gets passed down. Any other children would also have the gene. After a while two relatives that both have the gene marry and have a child and that child gets two genes that are flawed. One from mother and one from father. This is where the deformation starts. These genes will eventually mutate.
This deformation is now caused by two flawed genes merging and becoming a deformed gene. So now that crooked nose might become no nose or some other major flaw like a brain disorder as the two genes mutate into other things. This is how people and animals that are the product of evolution were formed.
Flaws in these genes may keep mutating into even worse things. This is why marriage to close relatives is outlawed. The odds of having a deformed baby are quite high these days as humans have many faulty genes in them.
So the answer to the question is :
Yes you are a product of incest if you are a human born as a descendant of Adam. If you are a human that is a product of simians evolution then you probably are also a product of incest as early humanoids surely did not worry about who was who just as an animal today does not worry about it.
God Made All the Plants on Earth
God created all the plants on earth. This includes the trees , grass, mushrooms and every other plant including the famous marijuana.
So this brings up the question that has been asked for thousands of years :
The question is pondered here – What if God Smoked Cannabis ?
