I just read an article written in June 2008 by Meiko, and titled, “How did Noahs descendants procreate?” Meiko wanted to know who we are descendants of. Meiko references three chapters the Bible. Genesis 10:1-5 has the answer.
I recall the story of, the first humans God created on earth, Adam & Eve, and a story about a flood. Another one tells of how the descendants of Adam & Eve began to; take part in orgies, worship false idols, and turned their backs to God. Since this was displeasing to him he had to take action. God will wipe out humans by flooding the entire earth. God chose to save Noah. God saw Noahs pure heart and knew he was worth saving. So, God told Noah to build an ark and fill it with two of every creature (male & female) on earth, including his wife, three sons and their wives. He sent rain from the heavens for forty days and forty nights wiping out all living things, except Noah and his family. When the rain stopped, Noah and his family found dry land. So, what came next?
Some believe that we’re descendants of Adam and Eve and others argue that we’re descendants of Noah. Easy explanation. Both sides in the argument are right. Adam and Eve were created first, therefore Noah is their descendant. God flooded the earth, killing everyone except those on Noahs Ark. The only descendants of Adam and Eve living. Argument solved! We are descendants of Adam and Eve AND Noah. Now that the mystery of descendantship has been solved, lets look at a bigger question.
Genesis 10:1-5 gives me reason to question the truth in the Holy Bible and God. Here’s why: Take a look at Genesis 10 1-5.
“1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nation”
Genesis 10:1-5 only describes Noah and his descendents as Sons, how was earth repopulated? There is NO mention of Noah having female descendants to repopulate earth. How could Noahs sons have sons and their sons have sons if there were no daughters?
So, where did we really come from?
It is not my intention to sound insult your faith or your God. I have a very analytical mind that breaks everything down to see how it works, and there is NO mention of woman other than Noahs wife and three daughter in laws. I’m just curous, so please as said in Luke 6:37 “…forgive and ye shall be forgiven”
Thanks for reading!
