Who Really Gave Birth to Humanity?

The Black Salvage would like to introduce to you the inagural article from the newest addition to our team, Cynical Jubilee. Below is a brief introduction: "I'm a Religious Studies Philosophy major at MSU. I enjoy studying Religion for the sole purpose of tracing a HISTORICAL outline of religious origins and moral codes instead of bashing other's beliefs with the Tomfoolery they tried to brainwash me with in Sunday School. I'm here to present you all with historical FACTS, but I respect everyone's beliefs and opinions."

Since it’s the New Year and I’m new to the team, I find it very fitting to share some insight on the story of Genesis and propose a question that many choose to look over- Adam and Eve were the first two humans and they had two sons- Cain and Abel. One son kills the other, so:

Where did where did Cain find a wife to reproduce with if there were no other humans on earth? Well, there are two books that come to mind that you won’t find in your KJV Bible that attempts to answer these questions. The first is a book in the Old Testament Apocrypha called "Jubilees" and it explains the beginning of creation starting with Genesis and ending with the parting of the Red Sea. The author is unknown but he tries to answer every possible question that may arise. You might as well call this book “Genesis—1st Draft”. The author claims that Adam and Eve had 9 sons and daughters. The youngest daughter name is Awan and she becomes Cain's wife and bears a son named Enoch at the end of the 4th Jubilee (one Jubilee=49 years). Just take a look at this passage from the Book of Jubilees:

"And Cain took ’Âwân his sister to be his wife and she bare him Enoch at
the close of the fourth jubilee. And in the first year of the first week of the fifth jubilee, houses were built on the earth, and Cain built a city, and called its name after the name of his son Enoch. And Adam knew Eve his wife and she bare yet nine sons.
And in the fifth week of the fifth jubilee Seth took ’Azûrâ his sister to be his wife, and in the fourth (year of the sixth week) she bare him Enos."

Jubilees 4:9-11

Now I can understand why the ancient bishops wouldn’t favor this over Genesis when they were canonizing the Bible. If this book has any truth to it, scholars would gouge their eyes out at the mere thought of putting a story of incest in the Holy Book.

The second—and maybe even lesser known—book in a series of Old Testament Apocryphal books is the book of Enoch. At one hundred and eight chapters, it’s like a mini Revelations that predicts the end of the world through Noah’s flood. The book also contains visions of the fall of angels who impregnate earthly women and give birth to giants. Sounds like a twisted version of MTV’s The Real World, but think about this: How many of you would read more of your Bibles if there were page turns after page turns of sordid incest and mythical beasts? These two books attempt to provide insight to the unanswered questions that commonly arise to those reading the Bible but why then, would these—and many others—be excluded form the final draft? Could the answers to these burning questions about the birth of humanity be found in the pages of the books that are rarely read or are they just fanciful fiction compositions? You decide.

  1. Genesis 1:26

    "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let THEM have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."

    God didn't just create one man and woman to be fruitful and multiply.

    Genesis 2:24
    "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."

  2. -anonymous

    i guess i see what your saying but take in mind that your making an implication based off your own interpretation...there are theoretically millions more interpretations of the same ambiguous passage from the millions of Christians out there. . .

    i personally feel a divine text should be discrete and concise or else it really just renders itself null and void. but hey- that's just me. . .

  3. obviously you are missing the point of the whole article...these are scriptures from actual books that weren't included in the modern canon that attempt to give answers to the questions that may arise out of genesis. whats your point of just posting a verse out the bible? CLEARLY because if u wrote anything after that, then it would be YOUR interpretation that someone else may disagree with. everything is not meant to be taken so literal

  4. It's interesting, because you can have 10 people read the same passage and will have all kinds of different interpretations of it. The simple fact that there are many different versions, accounts, and hear say on what happened, or was believed to had happened leaves many to be forced to do nothing else other then to interoperate anyone of them in their own light and views.

    I agree that any text of that nature should be clear cut and simple and discrete, but that's for each person to evaluate on their own after reading and studying each text on its own merit.

  5. You've pointed out that much of the Bible doesn't make any logical sense. That's why it takes faith to give it credence.

  6. just my what's next? to discredit the bible? it is in accurate; therefore, it is irrelevant. We can continue with the questioning about who gave birth, but at what point do we stop the silly arguments and start asking about the moral state of human being? which religion contributes to the welfare of all human without any regard to race, beliefs, creed etc...again just my opinion....let's not be busy just to be busy, lets be fruitful

  7. Hey there!

    This is just the kind of blogging that I looooove to see!!

    Of course, as a minister, I am not going to say that there are NO OTHER "religious" papers in existence... of course, there were other writers during the same time that God was "commissioning" His own writers to record His words but are those other writers credible...are those other sources credible? It all depends. Some people believe that if they can be proven to have been written during the time period that was described THEN they are credible sources...

    Well... I can write whatever I want and so can you and just because someone comes along and says "hey that woman really did live in the time period that she was writing about!!" does not mean that any of the writing was FACT.

    Something to think about...

  8. @ Francis- i agree...but how much does faith override logic?

    @?>education- im not here to discredit the bible. just enilighten some ppl on other theories...TRUST me, as a Religious Studies student, some people refuse to believe that other texts exists that negate the foundation of their very own understanding...just shedding light

  9. @blackwomenblowthetrumpet- i really appreciate that a minister can see where im coming from. thnaks for the comment, which reminds me of something along the lines one of my professors told me once:

    basically, we ALL write things the way we want them to look, ommitting the wording that make us look weak or questions our credibility...i trulu believe it

    thanks for taking the time out to read my 2nd one is coming this week...please subscribe :)

  20. I can't believe what I'm reading. Did you read the Bible before you wrote about it? There is incest in the Bible...

    Let's see, off the top of my head...
    Abram and Sarai were half brother/sister. Isaac married his uncle's granddaughter... Lot's daughters got him drunk and slept with him (once each!) to have sons by their father...

    We're told God made Adam and Eve. They had two sons, Cain and Able. Cain kills Abel. Then Adam and Eve had Seth before having other sons and daughters... without reading anything more into what was presented in Scripture, Cain have had to marry a sister or niece...

    Oh, and the fallen angels taking human wives and raising giant, powerful children is in the Bible too... right before the flood... Read Genesis 6:1-4

    I go along with what blackwomenblowthetrumpet said that there were other books, but they might not have been written by those inspired by God... or they might not have been necessary to include them in the canon.

    As for some of the other comments made, just because you don't understand the Bible, don't go saying it's not logical... find the answers. They're out there. It's a whole field of study called apologetics (sp?)

  21. Joe Wade & others-

    understand that the bible tells a piece of the story. There were other people in exsistence. Cain was sent to the "land of Nod" metaphorically speaking. There he found his wife. Use common sence when reading...

4 Reasons Why BET Is An Embarrassment To Black People

1. BET(Black Entertainment Television) did not air Coretta Scott King’s funeral on it’s station. BET claimed it wanted to offer viewers a different kind of experience by posting a live webcast on it’s website of the funeral where viewers could access it "at work, at home, traveling,[and] at school". Likewise, the four major networks; NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX all broadcast their own live webcasts on their respective websites. But these stations as well broadcast the funeral on television. C-SPAN and CNN also aired the funeral live.

This reason alone proves that BET is the epitome of trash on television. And not to equate the struggle of blacks with Coretta Scott King, but there would be no BET without her. BET felt that viewers would prefer to watch women shaking their rumps in music videos rather than some funeral for a beloved civil rights leader.
2. BET is not black entertainment television. It does not represent the views and ideals of the millions of Blacks in the United St…

Revolving Door In Africa: Prevention vs Treatment

I was perusing the Washington Post one Tuesday afternoon-I came upon an article entitled "Best Kept Secret For HIV Free Africa". The article discusses how U.S funding for birth control has been decreased in Africa, and how antiretrovial drugs are the main treatment and initiative for HIV infected Africa. The article continues to emphasize that science and research proves that birth control is more effective, but unfortunately, the U.S Government has decided that antiretrovial drugs will continue to be the focal point in the struggle to help developing nations in Africa. For those who dont know, Antiretrovial drugs are medications for the treatment of HIV. I would like to emphasize the word treatment. Antiretrovial drugs help to slow the HIV virus from entering different cells in the human body. Basically, the person continues to have the virus, it just takes the virus longer to spread through the body. Some may consider it to prolongate sickness and death-But that is just op…

The Light Skin Complex

Anybody who knows me well, or well enough for that matter, knows I was going to write about this at some point...smh...
Why do Dark Skinned Black people hating on Light Skinned Black people? Without Frederick Douglass, we would probably still be slaves. Without Jesse Jackson, helping out MLK jr,, White people would probably ignored him. Without Thurgood Marshall, Clarence Thomas wouldn't be Judge now. Now we got Obama as President... and you know eventually we will have a dark skinned African American President. Bush looked at Colin Powell, made him Secretary of State, then gave Condi Rice a chance. See... Dark Skinned Black people should be grateful that we Light Skinned Black people are making their life easier...Agree?” - Yahoo Answers Poster
I have grown to accept that many African-Americans don't have a genuine desire to learn or embrace their history and heritage. I have become accustom to one's “Blackness” in America being more so defined by their clothes and vernacu…
