In this video Dr Woodhead discusses Cain who is now seen after the murder of his brother and his banishment from God and from his home region, which was near Eden. Eden was in Southeast Iraq near ancient Babylon or about forty miles southeast of Baghdad on the Euphrates River northwest of the Persian Gulf. Cain’s leaving God was only a departure of the physical presence of God in time and space, The Shekinah Glory. One cannot get away from God since He is omnipresent. This refers to the moving flame at the east end of the Garden of Eden. At the famous Scopes Monkey Trial in 1925 with evolution vs. creationism the real subject on trial, the question of where Cain’s wife came from was brought up. People who did not know the Bible but believed it could not adequately answer the question for the jury. The facts are that Cain had sisters and even offspring as well as nieces whom he could have had as a wife. Because the gene pool was not yet fully corrupt as decay settled into the creation after the fall there was no prohibition against marrying a close relative. Later under the Mosaic Law, God would implement such regulations, (Leviticus 18: 6-18) which are intact today in Christianity (I Corinthians 5: 1 etc.). Unbelievers trying to provide some validation of their unbelief that the Bible is not true usually raise issues like this.
