Where Did Mrs Cain Come From?

The bible has a gap within which the first two sons born from Eve grow to working age.

Gen 4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
Gen 4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. (KJV)

In this gap we could conceivably have Eve give birth to daughters also, there is no requirement for "In the process of time" to be an empty set of events.

When Cain slew Abel and was cursed and driven out as a vagabond Cain took his wife with him, presumably his sister.

Gen 4:15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
Gen 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
Gen 4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. (KJV)

There is no sense that Cain found a wife after being driven out to the land of "Nod" as it is in the text.

Likewise the passage that (many teach) indicates that angels interbreed with women to create the "superman" or nephelim hybrid is taken out of context also.

Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (KJV)

The "sons of God" were the male descendants of Adam. As the family tree grew men began not to look on women as their sisters, mothers, or cousins but as candidates for a physical relationship; it simply indicates in the text that as lust grew so did the wickedness of man.

We assume there is no sense of a wedding ceremony in the form of "taking them wives of all they chose". It simply means that there was much multiplication and it also occurring alongside what could be considered a "baby boom". We have in view also the desire of man being satisfied for women outside of what we would consider a stable relationship.

Verse 3 states that the multiplication of man has been such that God likewise does no longer consider men "family". They as men are concerned with pleasing themselves rather than their Father; and one hundred and twenty years is ample for any man to answer his desires.

Verse 4 is the problem verse in the passage. "Giants" present in the earth shows the difference of stature, not height. Social stature and dominion is indicated and not the height of men. "Great" men, men of reputation are born from those that were older: Those patriarchal families with its older head or "Giant" had a line of descendents within which "men of renown" with many wives began to appear during the then pre-flood "baby boom".

Verse 5 shows that men begin to sin. They covet. Every man walked after the lust of his heart in jealousy of those that had many wives and were "men of renown". A man's life was spent in effort to satisfy his coveting of other men's wives and increasing his own stature; He was continually wicked. "Life goals" were made in order to satisfy a "root lust". This conjunction of lust and disjunction of men's life goals were the dialectic drive that man used to guide himself continually - making nothing of the absolute difference between right and wrong as mere dialectic thesis/antithesis. In truth the text indicates after this manner the pre-flood man was following the serpent in continual wickedness.

Next, take a look at the next verses in proper context.

Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Gen 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
Gen 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Gen 6:9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. (KJV)

Not only in verse 7 does it show that God repents of His initial creation of man, for they are only wicked continually - but God vows to destroy them; In fact He vows to destroy those whom He has created. There is no indication that man is genetically aberrant, or has had the gene-pool polluted with alien or angel DNA. The text clearly states not only that God repented of creating the first man, but repents of creating those whom were alive in Noah' day also. If God created them, why would they be aberrant?

Rather, why would He repent of creating Adam, who was "true to specification"? The idea has no weight that the gene pool has been satanically manipulated.

The verse so widely understood so as to create the impression of alien interference or satanic sabotage is verse 9. That Noah was perfect in his generations shows that the family line of Noah was perfect: It was a line borne of marriage and not of "swinging". We could assume every forefather of Noah had but one wife and every mother of each had but one husband. Noah wasn't born of lust. Noah's line was one of perfection - which we can only understand to be not "continually-wicked" as above. Noah's line was not necessarily one of monogamy, but was one that did not sin after that manner, a line of a stable loving family with the patriarchal authority intact from God, and not after the practices of the serpents lie. Moreover the offspring of Noah (his three sons) had just one wife each! Perfect for a new start.

We can identitfy Noah's line as not having any "mighty men of old" - no such "clan" when it comes to the practice of the dialectic in place of marriage. Then Noah's line is "perfect".

Likewise we could consider that God brings the sins of the fathers onto the sons to the third and fourth generations. Noah's family line could indeed be perfect if they were more interested in pleasing God than themselves, having faith; as opposed to simply the right "chromosomes".

If Adam was the man with the tallest stature, the greatest man of renown; God Himself chose the smallest man to save. Noah to all intents was, the least of his age. (Age as in an aeon).

There is simply no scriptural need in the OT and NT canonical texts for the "nephilim" to be any more than men themselves. The "Nephilim myth" of satanic interference is just that; satanic interference, an aberration, yet of scripture and our spiritual lifeline to God rather than of the gene pool and our physical line to Adam.
