Lamech was 6 generations removed from Cain, the son of Adam. The problem is that just one or possibly two generations after Lamech, all the descendants of Cain perished in the Flood.

So how did the knowledge of tent-making, animal husbandry and Scottish folk music survive?

Well if by having faith one can move the mountain then surely one also would be capable of learning how to make a tent. Or just god (wizard) did it.

But then, why name these two specific gentlemen as the fathers of their trades respectively? If the knowledge of these trades survived through Noah or one of his children, they should have been so honored. And why, oh why, did the knowledge of bag-pipe playing survive? Didn't God punish the earth enough with the Flood?

Also Abel raised sheep way before whatsisname. Shouldn't he have been honored as the father of animal husbandmen?

I guess it's great mystery of the faith.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

But don't worry. Heres another chance to exercise your ingenuity:
The Cainites (Kenites) were descendants of Cain, the son of Adam and in 1 Samuel 15:6 we read that King Saul said to them, ""Go away, leave the Amalekites so that I do not destroy you along with them; for you showed kindness to all the Israelites when they came up out of Egypt." So the Kenites moved away from the Amalekites."

How did the Kenites survive the Flood?

He taught the girl from the movie Noah who is also not mentioned in the biblical story how to play the skin flute. She in turn taught the hadrosaurs and other "kinds" on the ark about the other instruments and then the stowaway Nephilim picked up the banjo to pass it on. Simple.

RE: Doc's priapic Sunday School (Swollen with love. Rigid in discipline)
So, elsewhere in the forum, our resident turbaned theist insists that Isaiah 7 contains a prophecy referring to the virgin birth of Christ. There's been a great deal of talk as to whether the word alma in Hebrew means virgin or young maiden with the theists favoring the former, more spectacular meaning.

If, however, Isaiah 7 was spoken by Isaiah to Ahaz in a time of crisis to comfort him and reassure him that all would be well and that he would not have to fear the destruction of Judah by the combined armies of Israel and Syria, then the prophecy not only refers to the future birth of Christ but also to the present deliverance of Judah.

If that be the case, then who was the virgin in Ahaz's time that would give birth to a baby boy and name him Immanuel?

Trick question! Angry

There was no virgin. Smartass

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Fair enough. But lets look at the passage again. Isaiah 7: 14-16 says, "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and[e] will call him Immanuel. He will be eating curds and honey when he knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, for before the boy knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, the land of the two kings you dread will be laid waste."

Riddle me this. If this prophecy applies to the birth of Jesus, then was there a time in his life when he did not know right from wrong?

I’m going with yes because: The Holy Trinity and the Old Testament. Apparently God/Jesus/Holy Ghost was into genocides at one time (might still be).

or do you just mean when he was young?

Speaking o' which, didn't the Holy Spirit know that feeding the infant Jesus curds and homey put him at risk for infant botulism? Could his strange beliefs have been caused by brain damage from muscle weakness and hypoxia from respiratory failure? Do we owe the current status of our civilization to the effects of C. botulinum on an infant 2000 years ago? Does anyone even care?
