DLS

According to the Bible (or I could be wrong here) Adam and Eve had two sons. Cain and Abel. If that's so, how did these two (or one of them, since the other one was murdered by his brother) spread population? If the answer that comes to your mind is the same as mine, then if that is the explanation behind this question, why does Bible forbid incest if the first human beings were products of it?

    In the time of adam and eve, Eve was the mother of the person that Cain slept with (because eve is mother of all generations) in that time there wasn't a law that said it was a sin to commit incest.

    Religion is hardly useless, it's a great medium for spreading necessary rules and morals throughout a society while trying to answer questions that people don't understand the answer too. If you haven't yet, I strongly recommend you guys read Plato's Republic, Socrates goes into great depth about why mythology is important while he constructs his utopia for the reader.

    well may be but life is really what u perceive it to be... thats y people spend their life doing different things.. The only thing that I see religion is good for is to bring people together.. Morals can be good or bad.. Besides we humans are the easiest to be manipulated..

    I guess Their histories are very much intertwined. While you don't need to be religious to live a moral life, religion was largely constructed to convince people that these morals are necessary or you'll be punished beyond comprehension. In this sense religion is a scare tactic that is designed to enforce morals, and has been for a long, long time.

    If you actually read the text Adam and Eve's first two son were Cain and Able. Cain killed Able and was outcast eventually to Ninevah in the Fertile Crescent, married and had a family. A & E had another son named Seth, supplant, and many other sons and daughters. Where Cain's wife came from is not given, whether humans existed before the fall of A & E and their being expelled form the garden of Eden is possible, they being to only one's that were actually created by God.

    If Peter Pan actually helps you form your reality then he is a god. In my personal experience belief doesn't makes it so, God does. One can seek God in different ways, science does by studying the creation, which makes it a idol, others do in a much more personal manner. The Biblical statement "Seek and yea shall find" attest to this, I guess it for what purpose one is seeking and the true motivations.

    I was raised with the expression "Just because someone jumps off a bridge do you", which was to say if someone else does something stupid do you. I'm sorry you haven't found "God" and especially your relinquishment of the quest. The possibility for failure maybe twofold, manner and motivation. I have not actually found God but on the way I've experienced things that can't be explained, the miraculous if you may, which definitely warrant further pursuit. A thing in your favor is that God wont be found unless he wants to and maybe he will leave you a trail.
