Adam's family query
Nelson McCausland (Write Back, October 2) asserts that, despite overwhelming evidence, the theory of evolution is unproven and he prefers the certainty of the Bible.
I am neither a theologian nor a Bible scholar and I would be very glad if Mr McCausland could answer a question which has troubled me for some time.
As I understand it, God created Man (Gen Ch 2 v7), then Woman (Gen Ch 2 v22). In Genesis Ch 4, v1-2, Adam and Eve produce two sons, Cain and Abel. However, Cain killed Abel.
Where did the other people referred to in verses 14-15 come from? And, more importantly, where and how did Mrs Cain come on the scene?
