What i don’t understand, is if adam andeve only had two sons, and one killedthe other one. how did we get here, if adam and eve didnt have a daugther?

You need to read a little further on in the story… Besides Cain and Abel, Adam and Eve also had Seth (Genesis 4:25) and other sons and daughters (Genesis 5:4)

Sometimes I get stumped by other people’s ignorance, too. When they say things that sooo don’t make sense, how does one approach it?

Don’t forget Christ’s lineage at the end of Luke 3

of Cainan, of Arphaxad, of Sem, of Noe, of Lamech, of Methusala, of Enoch, of Jared, of Maleleel, of Cainan, of Enos, of Seth, of Adam, of God.

Christos Anesti! Christ is Risen!
John.
