Who was CAIN’S WIFE?
Skeptics have used Cain’s wife time and again to try to discredit the book of Genesis as a true historical record.
Completely ignoring the FACT that this very same question could be asked of Evolution, after all "Who did the first ape-man's son sleep with?"
The Same issue affects BOTH theory's equally if it really were a problem, but they know as I do just how DNA worked in early human history but they seem to apply a different standard to the Bible than they are willing to apply to themselves!
For instance, at the historic Scopes trial in Tennessee in 1925, William Jennings Bryan, the prosecutor who stood for the Christian faith (Who had NO scientific prowess…He was a Lawyer after all.) , failed to answer the question about Cain’s wife posed by the outspokenly anti-Christian ACLU lawyer Clarence Darrow,who consulted with the science teachers of the day who were evolutionist’s.
We are not told when Cain married or any of the details of other marriages and children, but we can say for certain that some brothers had to marry their sisters at the beginning of human history.
Remember that Abraham married his half-sister (Genesis 20:12). God blessed this union to produce the Hebrew people through Isaac and Jacob.
Let’s be real here, do Evolutionist’s believe that at one point in their VAST TIME-LINE; AT THE VERY BEGINNING OF HUMANS THAT THERE WASN’T SEX BETWEEN FAMILY MEMBERS ?
PLEASE GET REAL!
Today, brothers and sisters (and half-brothers and half-sisters, etc.) are not permitted by law to marry because their children have an unacceptably high risk of being deformed.
There is a very sound genetic reason for such laws that is easy to understand. Every person has two sets of genes that specify how a person is put together and functions. Each person inherits one gene of each pair from each parent.
The more distantly related parents are, the more likely it is that they will have different mistakes in their genes. Children, inheriting one set of genes from each parent, are likely to end up with pairs of genes containing a maximum of one bad gene in each pair.
However, the more closely related two people are, the more likely it is that they will have similar mistakes in their genes, since these have been inherited from the same parents.
However, Adam and Eve did not have accumulated genetic mistakes, AND therefore their Children had none until many Generations later of accumulated bad genes.
Cain was in the first generation of children ever born. He (as well as his brothers and sisters) would have received virtually no imperfect genes from Adam or Eve, since the effects of sin and the Curse would have been minimal to start with (it takes time for these copying errors to accumulate).

WHAT ABOUT THE CONCEPT OF RACE IN THE BIBLE & WHAT SCIENCE HAS FOUND OUT?
Genetics and evolution have been enemies from the beginning of both concepts. Gregor Mendel, the father of genetics, and Charles Darwin, the father of modern evolution, were contemporaries.
An explanation of how the races came into being is quite puzzling for the average Christian.
At some point in life every Christian will be confronted with what is called the “racial problem.”
“Can race be Biblically defined?”
The term race does not appear in the Bible and it refers to differing peoples in terms such as family, tribe, people and nation. It groups people according to familial relationships and then into nationalities.
“By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations” (Gen. 10:5).
And from the Hebrew word :
Apparently from the sense of massing; a foreign nation; hence a Gentile; also (figuratively) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts: – Gentile, heathen, nation, people.
Nowhere in the Bible is prejudice based on what we determine as race; i.e. color of hair, skin, eyes or physical characteristics.
