Cain’s Wife has prompted an enduring question.
Who was Cain’s Wife?
The churches have not given an acceptable answer to who was Cain’s Wife. Their inability to answer this question creates great doubt as to the accuracy of the Bible. More and more Christians are giving up on defending the Bible.
Cain’s Wife has been talked about in countries all over the world for hundreds of years.
Skeptics of the Bible have used Cain’s Wife time and again to try to discredit the book of Genesis as a true historical record.
Researchers have attempted to reconcile the Bible with the undisputable scientific evidence for creative evolution. The researchers combined four sets of information: The current Bible, the old Bible before the major changes in late BC and early AD, other Ancient Literature, and the scientific facts of creation/evolution.
The researchers began by trying to clarify why the Bible gives two accounts of the creation of Adam and Eve. The old version of the Bible clearly states that one account is for Lilith and one is for Eve.
In the current Bible the first account is for Lilith (Genesis 1:27) but her name was systematically removed from the current Bible, except for one reference in Isaiah 34:14.
Not only was Lilith removed from the Bible, but she was demonized.
However her name can be seen in the older version of the Bible that existed before later day changes were made.
The second account for the creation of Adam and Eve in the current Bible is for the creation of Eve, Adam’s second mate as described in Genesis 2:18. This is perfectly clear when the old and new Bibles are compared side by side.
The facts remain that the old Bible states that Lilith did exist and she did have children
that are mentioned throughout the ancient literature. At lease one of her daughters was called Lilim.
The researchers provide the argument of how Lilim became Cain’s Wife in the land of Nod outside the Garden of Eden.
The researchers further found evidence that the Garden of Eden was in Asia, or at least the “birthplace” of first man was in Asia.
Newly discovered bones found in the area clearly show that early Homo sapiens lived in the area at the time of the birth of first man.
But we have long been taught that the first Homo sapiens, and thus Adam and Eve were from Africa.
The researchers findings tend to refute the “out of Africa theory”.
These findings really brought out the critics.
It will probably take some time to further inspect the newly discovered bones of Homo sapiens in the area and to review the other findings.
Hopefully the critics will come to a consensus as to who Cain’s Wife really was.
